Global warming hoax dies in Israel: "the issue has quietly disappeared from the public agenda"

Big promises, little action on climate change - Israel News
The State of Israel made a solemn international commitment to do its part in the worldwide effort to prevent global warming. President Shimon Peres stood at the head of the government delegation to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in 2009 and declared Israel’s willingness to reduce CO2 emissions 20 percent by the year 2020.

In retrospect, it would seem that there has not yet been a promise to the international community that Israel has so insouciantly flouted. In practice, the government delegation had hardly boarded the plane back home before it forgot its zeal for global solidarity and the meaning of delivering on the diplomatic lip service it had disingenuously spouted.
Since the president’s pledge, greenhouse emissions have only risen faster.  Indeed this summer saw electricity demand increase by more than 10 percent relative to previous years.‏) At the same time, the issue has quietly disappeared from the public agenda.
2009:  Fundamentalists Wage War on Science, Climate Change Facts on
Why are American Christian fundamentalists waging a war on science? They wage war against the science of climate change.

I agree with The writer on one thing: "our planet is at peril", but not from anthropogenic alleged global warming (GW) but from the stupidity of people who can't tell the difference between politics (or religion) and science.

Most scientists of various disciplines agree that the number one problem facing our planet is Population Explosion and not GW.. If we can control that we will automatically solve the other problem whether real or imaginary.

Prosperity cures population explosion, sometimes too well. Almost all developed economies are now in negative population growth. Capitalism works too fast, and too well, whenever allowed free practice.

I partially agree with Zvi about the motivating factor behind this hoax of AGW being political and not any bases in scientific fact and it is that due to the control and revenue factors associate3d with the hoax.

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” - Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” - Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment

“The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.” - emeritus professor Daniel Botkin

The part about the population explosion is not as straight forward in that it is a fact that as a society advances due to the wise use of fossil fuels and prospers, its population stabilizes and even goes into decline.

"In developed countries, the number of centenarians is increasing at approximately 5.5% per year, which means doubling the centenarian population every 13 years, pushing it from some 455,000 in 2009 to 4.1 million in 2050.[50] Japan is the country with the highest ratio of centenarians (347 for every 1 million inhabitants in September 2010). Shimane prefecture had an estimated 743 centenarians per million inhabitants."

Paul Ehrlich's book *The Population Bomb* has proven to be a work of fiction to the point that in the US obesity is more of a problem than people starving to death and this is all do to the use of energy in a prudent manner, not the other way around.

Population Explosion???? QUICK !! Get away from the Kool Aid Fountain. Just like, the Ocean acidification or sea rising, it is another Scary tactic by the Human haters.
