India Blasts COP21 as Carbon Imperialism; Other Attacks on Global Warming Hoax Flourish in U.K., Africa

Nov. 30, 2015 (EIRNS)—Arvind Subramanian, the chief economic advisor to the Modi government in India, on the eve of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP21 green fascist bash in Paris, issued a call for a "Manhattan Project For Coal," and called the campaign to end the use of fossil fuels "carbon imperialism."

Subramanian explained that

"In the run-up to the conference, there is a growing call—first articulated clearly at this year’s summit of the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations—to phase out fossil fuels. The United States and others have also vowed to vote against fossil fuel energy projects in developing countries when multilateral development banks are voting on them."

He continues:

"For India—a country struggling to provide basic electricity to about 25% of the population, according to conservative estimates—this smacks of a carbon imperialism. And such imperialism on the part of advanced nations could spell disaster for India and other developing countries....

"Under any plausible scenario, coal will provide about 40-60% of India’s energy until 2030, 2015. It will, and should, remain the country’s primary energy source because it is the cheapest fuel available."

In an interview with a major French daily Le Figaro on Nov. 27, economist Rémy Prud’homme similarly exposed the "global warming imperialism" of COP21, citing among other things the efforts to shut down coal-fired electricity production in Africa and India. Prud’homme forecast a strong clash at the COP21 conference over this colonial policy.

While a new anti-climate scare film, "Climate Hustle," is appearing Dec. 1, two other attacks on the global warming hoax have come out in news media in the Green Royals’ British Commonwealth itself.

The Cameroonian weekly tabloid Integration on Nov. 24 featured an interview with former NASA scientists and meteorologist Tom Wysmuller denouncing the hoax. Integration gave the interview a screaming page-one headline: "Thomas Wysmuller: There Is No Planetary ‘Climate Threat.’" Wysmuller states that, if all of the proposals to be put before COP21 were to be adopted, humankind would be thrown back to the Stone Age. He says that he wishes to see Cameroon "rise to the level that brings the best lifestyle, medical health, and prosperity that you can hope for and then benefit all of humanity!!! When your nation’s intelligence and intellect are focused on becoming equal partners in the world, the rest of the world’s nations will welcome your inclusion in mainstream economic progress."

The hoax was exhaustively exposed in "Climate Change Science and the Climate Change Scare" by Andrew Kenny, a South African engineer, published the same day, Nov. 24, in @Liberty, the policy bulletin of the South African Institute of Race Relations, and posted in full the next day on the widely read South African business news site, biznews.com.

Kenny’s 24-page paper makes clear that the hoaxsters’ prescriptions will prevent industrialization and will keep billions of people in poverty. Advancing many of the scientific refutations featured in EIR’s own Special Report, "‘Global Warming’ Scare Is Population Reduction, Not Science," Kenny writes,

"But we must rely on science. It is our surest, perhaps our only, path to truth. And the advance of science and reason has brought profound practical benefits to humanity."
