President Obama stated this week that, “The viciousness of a handful of killers does not stop the world from doing vital business, and that Paris is not going to be ‘cowered’ by the violent, demented actions of a few.” He went on to say, “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be, when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children.”
By using terms like “a handful” and “a few” to describe the terrorists he shows that he still refuses to acknowledge the scope of the problem, even as he greatly magnifies the “problem” of climate change. An immensely expensive agreement to try to slow down climate change, however, will prevent the world from doing “vital” business. It will stifle the economies of the productive nations if adhered to, and lead to many businesses closing their doors.
If the terrorists had a sense of humor, they would be heartily guffawing over the “powerful rebuke” that a successful climate change conference will supposedly deal them. Yes, the civilized world standing as one to further bankrupt itself in an attempt to address a problem that does not exist, that is not of our making and that we have no control over, while diverting attention and resources away from fighting the murderous bastards themselves will really rattle them!
The president, along with dozens of other world leaders, will participate in an event on the first day of the conference, Monday, November 30th. He is scheduled to leave Paris the next day. The conference will continue until “at least” December 11th , officials state.
