Confusion of the Copenhagen faithful ~ By Henry Lamb

Commentary from WorldNetDaily
Henry Lamb By Henry Lamb Posted: December 05, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 More than 14,000 people have pre-registered to attend the shindig in Copenhagen next week, none of whom are delegates. The facility, which accommodates only 15,000 people, will be overrun by special-interest groups, all clamoring for attention and a piece of the $94 billion pie that is divided annually among the global-warming congregation. The number of delegates that attend these meetings usually reaches 4,000, and the press adds another thousand or so. The conference is an economic boon to the host city, an opportunity to party for the attendees – and a potential disaster for everyone else in the world. The Copenhagen meeting is the 15th official meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change. This is the annual "biggie"; delegates and special-interest groups meet four or more times each year, each meeting drawing 5,000 to 10,000 people. The U.N. actually pays a per diem to the majority of the delegates; expenses for most of the special-interest groups come from grants from various governments, or from major foundations. The U.N. works hard to see that a good time is had by all; they screen attendees tighter than the Secret Service screens state dinners at the White House. WorldNetDaily, for example, is not allowed to attend; they may report something that the U.N. does not want reported. The press that is allowed to attend may not film or record the meetings. They may not even carry their equipment into the area where the meetings are held without an official U.N. "minder" with them. Everyone is free to photograph and record in the public areas such as the restaurants and the exhibit area. READ FULL STORY >
