More than 200 people have been detained by police during a second day of protests in Copenhagen as environment ministers from around the world met for informal talks on a new climate pact.

Police stopped Sunday’s attempted demonstration as it made its way towards the city’s harbour.

Security officials also carried out a “stop-and-search” of some of the participants, said Flemming Steen Munch, a police spokesman.

Munch said police found bolt-cutters and gas masks when they searched a truck that led the demonstration.

But critics condemned a Danish law that allows police to make preventative arrests if they believe a demonstration will turn violent and hold suspected troublemakers for up to 12 hours without a court arraignment.

“They have arrested 1,000 people [over the two days]. And they only followed up on three of them,”Ida Thuesen, a  spokeswoman for Amnesty International, said. “There are lot of people who haven’t done anything and had no intention of doing anything.”

Symbols of change

The climate conference took a day off on Sunday, though more than 40 environment ministers and other high-level negotiators were meeting for informal talks at the Danish roreign ministry on greenhouse emissions cuts and financing for poor nations to deal with climate change.

Family Planning Vice-minister: “This… approach should serve as a model for integrating population programs…”

  The often brutal Chinese program of population reduction and control is being held up as an ideal model for governments when “integrating population programs” into environmental policies. Reporting from Copenhagen, China Daily reports,

“Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC).”

The China Daily article admits that the population policies have caused a serious problem with an aging population and a widening gender imbalance. However, China’s Family Planning Vice-minister Zhao Baige states that, “I’m not saying what we have done is 100 percent right, but I’m sure we are going in the right direction…” Baige further states that,

“This holistic approach that integrates policy on population and development, a strategy promoting sustainable development of population, resources and environment should serve as a model for integrating population programs into the framework of climate change adaptation…”

In April of 2007, NPR covered the personal stories of just a handful of the millions of women in china effected by coercive population control policies. Wei Linrong, a victim of forced abortion, tells her story,

“I was scared,” Wei told NPR. “The hospital was full of women who’d been brought in forcibly. There wasn’t a single spare bed. The family planning people said forced abortions and forced sterilizations were both being carried out. We saw women being pulled in one by one.”

The officials gave Wei three injections in the lower abdomen. Contractions started the next afternoon, and continued for almost 16 hours. Her child was stillborn.”

As the Copenhagen climate change meeting unfolds, the true agenda of the world’s power elite is emerging. Part of that agenda came with the initial leak of the Climate Research Unit e-mails, severely damaging the credibility of global warming science. A second revelation came with the leak of the secret Danish text portion of the Copenhagen treaty. The text, written by the so called “circle of commitment” – which includes the US, Denmark and the UK – states that climate financing money from developing countries, thought to go to the UN, will in fact be paid directly to the IMF and World Bank.

That the IMF and World Bank would handle the climate financing for developing countries is not surprising, given the fact that these organizations have regularly funded sterilization programs aimed at third world countries. Additionally, The Optimum Population Trust, a UK based think tank, has called for cutting the population of developing nations in an effort to lower Co2 emissions. James Corbett succinctly states, “The scheme is being promoted as a more cost-effective way to reduce CO2 emissions than investing in alternative energy sources and offers a way for elitist racists to feel ethical in their quest to exterminate the third world masses.”

Indeed, the third world has been the target of population reduction programs for decades. Henry Kissinger’s National Security Study Memorandum 200, which advocates the use of food as a weapon against population, is a prime example of the Anglo-American establishment’s position on population control. The 1974 report states,

“Would food be considered an instrument of national power?… Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?”

Today, food prices around the globe have exploded, due in part to the growing use of biofuel crops. Paul Joseph Watson writes, “The implementation of policies arising out of fraudulent fearmongering and biased studies on global warming is already devastating the third world, with a doubling in food prices causing mass starvation and death…” Lord Monchton, who has been a primary advocate against the Copenhagen Treaty, stated on the Alex Jones show,

“That’s how serious this is, these people, by their scientific fraud and financial fraud, they’re profiting enormously….while people die of starvation in a dozen regions of the world….it is a scandal of the worst proportion – our own fellow creatures are being killed by starvation because these people have lied and made up the science and hidden it so nobody else could check…”

The Chinese model of population control has already been implemented to a great extent in the third world. It is now being heralded by China at Copenhagen as a program for the world’s governments to adopt in an effort to fight against supposed man-made global warming.

COPENHAGEN: Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC) .

“Dealing with climate change is not simply an issue of CO2 emission reduction but a comprehensive challenge involving political, economic, social, cultural and ecological issues, and the population concern fits right into the picture,” said Zhao, who is a member of the Chinese government delegation.

Many studies link population growth with emissions and the effect of climate change.

“Calculations of the contribution of population growth to emissions growth globally produce a consistent finding that most of past population growth has been responsible for between 40 per cent and 60 percent of emissions growth,” so stated by the 2009 State of World Population, released earlier by the UN Population Fund.

Although China’s family planning policy has received criticism over the past three decades, Zhao said that China’s population program has made a great historic contribution to the well-being of society.

As a result of the family planning policy, China has seen 400 million fewer births, which has resulted in 18 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions a year, Zhao said.

The UN report projected that if the global population would remain 8 billion by the year 2050 instead of a little more than 9 billion according to medium-growth scenario, “it might result in 1 billion to 2 billion fewer tons of carbon emissions”.

Meanwhile, she said studies have also shown that family planning programs are more efficient in helping cut emissions, citing research by Thomas Wire of London School of Economics that states: “Each $7 spent on basic family planning would reduce CO2 emissions by more than one ton” whereas it would cost $13 for reduced deforestation, $24 to use wind technology, $51 for solar power, $93 for introducing hybrid cars and $131 electric vehicles.

She admitted that China’s population program is not without consequences, as the country is entering the aging society fast and facing the problem of gender imbalance.

“I’m not saying that what we have done is 100 percent right, but I’m sure we are going in the right direction and now 1.3 billion people have benefited,” she said.

She said some 85 percent of the Chinese women in reproductive age use contraceptives, the highest rate in the world. This has been achieved largely through education and improvement of people’s lives, she said.

This holistic approach that integrates policy on population and development, a strategy promoting sustainable development of population, resources and environment should serve as a model for integrating population programs into the framework of climate change adaptation, she said.

(NaturalNews) The inconvenient release of private email conversations among climate change scientists has been a boon for climate change skeptics. What emerges from the leaked emails is a depiction of a group of scientists who practice “intellectual protectionism” — meaning they know they’re right and they’ll do anything to protect their beliefs, even if it means hiding or manipulating data.

Sound familiar? Scientists in the pharmaceutical industry have been practicing this for decades. If you think the ClimateGate emails are revealing, just imagine what kind of similar emails are flying around between Big Pharma scientists who routinely manipulate study data and commit scientific fraud in the name of medicine. Time and time again, we see revelations of manipulated clinical trials where data was intentionally distorted in order to make a dangerous, useless drug appear to be safe and effective.

What ClimateGate scientists and Big Pharma scientists have in common is that they have both abandoned the core principles of good science in their quest to be right. Rather than asking questions of nature and humbly listening to the answers provided by the data, these scientists have staked out a position and decided to defend that position at all costs — even if it requires hiding or distorting data!

That approach is entirely unscientific, of course. In my mind, it now puts much of the recent global warming science in the same category as Big Pharma’s research: Pure quackery.

As Christopher Booker explains in The Telegraph, “The reason why even the Guardian’s George Monbiot has expressed total shock and dismay at the picture revealed by the documents is that their authors are not just any old bunch of academics. Their importance cannot be overestimated. What we are looking at here is the small group of scientists who have for years been more influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming than any others, not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).”

Claiming to save the planet is no excuse for scientific fraud

Global warming may, indeed, be a real phenomenon. But trying to “prove” it by conspiring to manipulate the data in order to be right is absolutely the wrong way to go about studying the issue. In fact, these ClimateGate revelations have soundly discredited much of the global warming scientific community to the point where whatever these people say from now on simply cannot be trusted.

And that’s a shame because the question remains: What if the global warming scientists are really right? What if they’re right for all the wrong reasons, and they let their egos and their professional pride get in the way of conducting real science, thereby discrediting the very notion they were attempting to prove? That’s a possibility we would still do well to consider.

Yet, from their released emails, it’s quite clear these scientists were manipulating data to make the “science” fit their beliefs. They weren’t focused solely on the real facts; they were interested in forwarding their climate change theories using any means necessary — including scientific trickery.
