I have enough problems in my life without wishing to get into the whole global warming issue. Suffice to say that any position supported by Al Gore, inventor of the internet, and John ‘Two Jag’s Prescott, deserves very close scrutiny.
United Nations climate negotiators at their summit in Cancun face an uphill battle to advance their goal of reducing emissions linked to global warming. As they need all the help they can get it’s no surprise that the woman steering the talks appealed to a Mayan goddess in her opening statement on Monday.
Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, invoked the ancient jaguar goddess Ixchel.
Noting that Ixchel was not only goddess of the moon, but also “the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you — because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools.”
If environmentalists are so concerned about the impact of climate change on third world countries why don’t they have their summits in one? A climate change summit summit in Cancun is as appropriate as holding the Winter Olympics in Qatar.
