We need to save the planet from global warmi– wait, what?

James Delingpole at The Daily Telegraph reports on this summer’s Bilderberg meeting, where the secret rulers of the universe meet every year to decide how to destroy Alex Jones. Delingpole has noticed an unusual item on the Bilderberg agenda:

The 58th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Sitges, Spain 3 – 6 June 2010. 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.

Global cooling. It’s kind of like global warming, except the exact opposite.

I don’t know about you, but every once in a while I hear about how I shouldn’t drive a car, or use proper light bulbs, or basically live the life of a 21st Century American because it’s melting the icebergs and making Al Gore cry. Why are these guys worried about global cooling? Could it have something to do with the way “global warming” became “climate change” became “global climate disruption”? Will they now try to shift from “the polar bears need life jackets” to “the polar bears need comfy sweaters” and hope nobody notices?

Delingpole says:

The next few years are going to be very interesting. Watch the global power elite squirming to reposition itself as it slowly distances itself from Anthropogenic Global Warming (”Who? Us? No. We never thought of it as more than a quaint theory…”), and tries to find new ways of justifying green taxation and control. (Ocean acidification; biodiversity; et al).

That’s what it’s all about: using science, or something that resembles science, to control how you live your life. What’ll happen when everybody stops panicking about yesterday’s doomsday and they try to get us all worked up about tomorrow’s?
