The power broker elite attending the Bilderberg conference in Sitges, Spain this June gave global warming the cold shoulder. It was pretty much Reunions again at the conference during which "Global Cooling" was featured as a main presentation.
Paul Volcker '49, Chairman of the Fed under Carter and Reagan, Peter Orszag '91, President Obama's former Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Bing West GS '67, author and Asst. Secretary for Defense under Reagan, Richard Holbrooke GS '70, American diplomat, Eric Lander '78 and valedictorian, and former faculty member James A. Johnson all attended the invite-only ~130 member meeting. The issue of global cooling appeared on the recently released agenda.
According to the press release, "The Conference will deal mainly with Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations."
We have much to fear. What if global cooling races from behind to clinch the prize for most marketable environmental fiasco? What if all that carbon we actively avoided emitting was for naught? I just hope someone lets me know if I should start dying my green shirts blue.
