Send a greeting to Copenhagen Conference

Russ Steele writes:

Cop15_logo_imgDuring the UN Climate Change Conference 2009 (COP15), the Danish government invites the entire world to send their greetings to the conference. Greetings are submitted through www.greetings.cop15.dk and are composed of 150 characters of text.

Here is the greeting I sent:

“Please no economic suicide. Do nothing as soon as possible, and return to your home countries confident you have saved the planet.”

Please share the greeting that you sent in the comments to this post.  The greetings are subject to editorial review by the COP15 Committee, and I will bet most will never be posted except on this blog.

I sent this:
“Please PLEASE stop and think what you’re doing. Think of the majority of us at home who DON’T want you to sign away our freedom and economy on this nonsense. It’s not Carbon Dioxide that’s the enemy, it’s Marxist socialist thinking, such as that currently represented in Copenhagen. Leave it alone, go home for all our sakes.”
Bet they filter out all the anti stuff, and it never gets seen.

Another scam, like Pen Hadow diretly from the ice? If you click NEXT, you get to see about 20 messages, always the same ones, despite claiming they have 5000+ already. No way to see them all or search them. Are you surprised I can’t see yours Anthony?

Sadly, if your post does not support the predetermined COP15 agenda, I suspect the comments will not be posted. I spent several minutes reviewing posts and could not find a single one that didn’t support a binding agreement.

Has the greetings site been hacked? I went to leave a message expressing my disatisfaction with the COP15 agenda but before I actually typed anything the CAPTCHA verification words were “deniers We”! Very funny!
I have a screen print bmp and jpg but i don’t know how to post the pic on this comment’s thread.

Please emit as much CO2 as you can in your speeches and your meetings. You might thus make a small gift towards preventing the coming ice age.

December 7, 2009 9:14 am

I know it’s too much to hope for, but I hope our elite politico-scientists’ climate change prevention aspirations reach a tipping point in Copenhagen, that the world sees IPCC for what it really is, that their influence tips into a permanent, irreversible decline that cannot be hidden, and that the world’s left wing environmental hacks spiral into a frenzy of passionate focus on feeding and caring for starving children, ending slavery, and helping societies cope with our dynamic, ever-changing world without first driving it into economic and social collapse.
Greetings, Copenhagen.

My message to the CCC…
Please do not wreck the Western economies and damage democracy based on unreliable science. I for one do not want “global governance” by the UN.

December 7, 2009 9:18 am

To paraphrase, I sent one asking for free cinema tickets in appreciation of the past 5 years worth of personal CO2 reductions I have made, which have now been offset by one celebrity jetting into Copenhagen!

December 7, 2009 9:18 am

Sent moments ago:
“Earth has had hotter years in the past, as we Portuguese can testify. Manmade warming is an illusion, as Climategate proves. Solve more urgent issues!!

December 7, 2009 9:24 am

When you “view greetings” it cycles among about 15 preset greetings all with a “greenie” feel. Another engineered PR piece, sad to say.

Why not leave something saying you agree with the official position of the Saudi government, i.e. that Copenhagen should not come to any firm conclusions until the emails have been fully investigated?
Presumably they would have to publish that, otherwise it can just be forwarded to the Saudis to show how they being discriminated against?
Also you could say you agree with the official position of the Indian government that’s there is no problem with the the glaciers – same logic.

I agree. I had to refresh my page several times and the confirmation words were pretty funny, considering. I can’t think of any of them now, but they were all on the lines of what you had, but not quite as obvious.

The American people, even the left leaning ones, aren’t too big on the idea of global governance, where we have no input whatsoever as to the officials making decisions that affect us directly. Expect much pushback from this, should you make decisions to institute this framework, or engage in your ‘social justice’ under the guise of environmental policy, as we will be the ones footing the bill.

They are simply cycling a dozen or so ‘on message’ comments.
The one I really really liked was:-
Please help the world take the action that is necessary, including working towards plant-based diet for everyone.
If this garbage really is on a screen in the conference centre, it will be just likethe big screen in “Big Brother”. so, if you’re not scared of AGW, you should be scared of that.

My message: sustainability, sustainability, sustainability.
1. Sustainable construction.
2. Sustainable recycling.
3. Sustainable forestry.
4. Sustainable energy, including providing for the next 20 years.
5. Sustainable access to clean water.
If you focus on those five, with all upstream and downstream implications factored in, you’ll help to make the world a better place.
If you obsess about carbon dioxide and millimetre rises in sea-level, you’ll help bring the world to its knees.

I think it’s pretty clear the elites intend to steamroll over the opposition at Copenhagen. I read an article a few months ago which said the proponents were concerned that they had lost the momentum in the climate change debate and this explained the increasingly dire predictions of cataclysmic climate change in the media. The elites are concerned that if they didn’t get what they want this year (a cap and trade system) then they never would. I’m sure the CRU emails increased their concern and they started up the steamroller.
You can send all the messages to Copenhagen you want. It won’t make any difference. The elites usually get what they want and I’m turning my attention to figuring out a way to profit by it.

Of the hundreds I read, only a few skeptical ones made the cut:
One day the World will wake up and realize what you have done. You will not be able to cover this up for ever. Global taxation is not the way forward
To every single attendee : publish the carbon footprint of your attendance
If you are serious about this FRAUD why is this not a teleconference? Oh yes, that would not allow the photo opportunities and the fancy dinners
Enjoy Copenhagen. Then fly your private plane somewhere else where you can lecture us all on the effects of carbon consumption.
I hope you realize climate change is all a big hoax and Copenhagen will just put a tax on the developed world all for a big, fat lie

I’m afraid the non-good wishes emails will all be peer-reviewed and rejected. Even this is a scam – they will be able to say that the world “consensus” was overwelmingly supportive. It concerns me that Climategate is essentially being ignored or spun out of existence by these case hardened grifters – my hope that it would kill the Copenhagen conspiracy against America is faltering. The Nobel prize for Obama was in itself a shameful bribe and the “investigations” at UEA and Penn State will be whitewashes that will only encourage more emboldened climate larceny.

Yes that’s right, no sign of my comment, or ANY critical comments
that you lot has put in. I did a word search and couldn’t find anything.
I also added the list to 100000 to see if I got any more comments,
and still virtually no critical comments turned up. Probably they
are trying to massage the ego of the delegates, and don’t want
them to see the critical comments of the many “skeptics”.
Can’t the blogmeisters see that they are repeating what Phil Jones
and the rest of them had done at East Anglia University ? This
kind of proves a point doesn’t it ? that they are willing to censor
the truth when it disagrees with their fantasy notions.

Just retrieved another dump from the “list” URL. Compared it with yesterday’s fixed dump. They bumped the number of messages released to 2800. I performed a diff against yesterday’s dump. About 32 new skeptical comments, not counting the “go veggie” ones. Of those, I think about 16 were from this comment section. Obviously, a huge amount of filtering of the ones posted here.
I think we need to press the editorial board to release more. Trumpeting selective censorship would be a start. Andrew Bolt? George Will? Stossel? O’Reilly?

To Whom It May Concern ,
What I want for Christmas is that the COP15 summit would recognize that
ALL scientists and their data within the Man-Made Global Warming/ Natural Climate Change community be reviewed Before making a decision on whether or not there is a CLEAR consensus on the Global Enviorment .
Research and Data materials were obtained from the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climate Research Unit in Norwich , UK . three weeks ago that makes it quite Clear that temperture change data from around the world was manipulated , falsified or destroyed by a very few scientists within and outside the CRU to sway a one sided opinion on the current issues of Anthropological Global Warming . I would think that a meeting of this importance would realize that a majority concensus of scientists around the world is required and while the IPCC is firm on their side of the AGW , their information may be based on the CRU’s conclusion.
I had also emailed my concerns on this issue to Mr. Al Gore , but I understand that Mr.Gore isn’t attending the meeting either due to unforeseen changes in his schedule or the great annoyance that are the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climate Research Unit data and materials .
Thank You

I made my comment successfully, but forgot to copy it. Something like: “what you are doing is wrong, and will only cause great harm. Climate science is corrupt.
