As esteemed B-BBC contributor David Preiser has repeatedly noted, one of the main BBC denigrators of the Tea Party movement is the US bureau’s Katty Kay. See here for an explanation of her venom. Ms Kay, as an activist liberal and Obama lover, is also – naturally – a climate change zealot, as David points out here.
But that’s not Ms Kay’s only involvement in greenie/lefty issues. Donna LaFramboise does excellent work on No Frakking Consensus tracking down linkages of greenie activists, and in this item she has pointed out that the Pew Charitable Trusts are pumping millions of dollars into training scientists who will spout climate change lies to order. I did a bit of digging, and before too long, up popped the name of Ms Kay.
During last autumn, she was “moderator” at an event that, even by the standards of eco-loonery, was rather intense fare. The title?
Women Heroes of Global Conservation – Repairing Nature, Empowering Communities
Right on, sisters. Straight from the handbook of female liberationist agritprop. And this is what Ms Kay cheer-led in the opulent surroundings of the Cannon House building in Washington:
During the luncheon panelists will describe the ways in which many women in their countries are negatively impacted by environmental destruction. They will also discuss the urgent need for the U.S. to make protection of forests and other natural ecosystems a central strategy in its efforts to improve the lives of women around the world. The speakers include Afghanistan’s only female Governor, Habiba Sarabi, and Nobel laureate Dr. Wangari Maathai.
* Dr. Wangari Maathai, founder of the Green Belt Movement in Kenya, winner of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize;
* Habiba Sarabi, Afghanistan’s only woman governor, founder of Afghanistan’s first national park;
* Maria Otero, Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs;
* Suzan Baptiste, chairman and founder of Nature Seekers in Trinidad;
* Sangduen “Lek” Chailert, founder of Elephant Nature Park in Thailand;
* Mary Mavanza, manager of the TACARE program of the Jane Goodall Institute in Tanzania;
* Lucy Aquino, Paraguay country director for the World Wildlife Fund; and
* Katty Kay, the Washington Correspondent for BBC World News America – moderator.
Not many signs of climate change dissenters in those ranks. So Ms Kay, as well as taking the award for the most vehement anti-Tea Party BBC reporter, is also in there fighting with the sisters on the Pew gravy train for an end to nasty CO2 emissions. One of the signficant contributory causes of economic meltdown is the adoption of greenie anti-industrialist and anti-enterprise measures; the BBC, as usual, has an activist at the heart of the action.
Thanks Robin – these wheels within wheels never fails to surprise me. Pew Charitable Trusts appears to be funded by money from a company called Sun Oil and was one of the US’s wealthiest foundations. Pew was according to Wiki ‘heavily involved in Republican Politics.
It doesn’t sound to me as though as though the Pew Charitable Trusts are following through on the ideals of their founders.
All Trusts are subverted by Leftists eventually.
Most people are busy paying their bills by working to provide a service via the market, whereas Leftist are generally professional parasites who construct verbal garbage (the bigger the shit the more grandiose the utopianism) with an attitude neatly illustrated by Yasmin Alibhia Brown who went straight to the First Class carriage dismissing the need to pay for the ticket simply by appealling to her sense of entitlement, which is bottomless, and therefore like all Leftists fraught with endless resentment of anybody who has more than themselves.
If you want to understand the Left just read a bit about two of its founders Rousseau and De Sade. Then read a bit about what really happened in the French Revolution. Anybody who knows the history of the Left will hardly be surprised that they are turning the BBC into an agitprop operation.
You might be puzzled why television these days is full of bitter, sour, comedians, endlessly parading their resentments and immorality. We have never had it so good. You might wonder why BBC drama is full of hate filled narcissists, Where is the humour and modesty you find in grown ups in real life in even the most difficult of circumstances? It is because the Left are projecting themselves up on the screen.
A Leftist drama is essentially an exercise in sentimental apologetics for people who have matured in emotional terms little beyond a baby suckling on a teat.
Yeah I followed the Donna Laframboise links to Pew. FFS the stink. Showering £100k a head funding to armies of new PHDs, basically corrupting the next generation of scientists and policy makers. And what sweet irony that the charitable foundations that fund Pew come from the children of the founders of the Sun Oil company. So now you know, its the environmentalists who are funded by Big Oil and not the Sceptics.
Many of these NGO World Peace foundations and Environmental Activists are funded by “guilt money” originating from obscenely rich hedge fund couples.
Another example the Grantham Institute at the LSE, Quote Wiki
– “Jeremy, together with Hannelore Grantham established the Grantham Foundation for the protection of the environment in 1997. Substantial commitments have been made to both Imperial College and London School of Economics, to establish the Grantham Institutes for Climate Change and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, which will enable both institutions to build on their extensive expertise in climate change research.”
Hedgies make billions as speculators in commodities but sleep soundly at night thanks their “good works” – helping to spreading fear and false alarm about the environment. (Of course, with a little help from Richard Black at our national treasure, the BBC)
That’s true, wild. You do find humour, modesty, goodwill and good grace everywhere in real life. And there is little of that with any of those that the Beeboid Corporation regards as comedians.
Smashing post Wild, is that right about YAB? I love dishing the dirt on this evil, racist bitch, if anyone epitomizes the expression, ‘biting the hand that feeds it’ it is this no-mark of a bitch.
I looked up her article. She explains that
“On my way to Harrogate [for an expenses paid conference]…I am late, so rush on without a ticket..I decide to go First Class….staff ask for proof that I am entitled to be there. I inquire politely why the others aren’t having to produce their tickets….There is no other black or Asian passenger in these coaches – just an observation….The humiliation cost me £248. Thank you, Northern Rail, for a lesson I will not forget. I should know my place.”
So it seems that she did not upgrade herself from a standard ticket (as I originally thought) she was on expenses and got on the train without any ticket, and complained that she was repeatedly asked for proof that she had purchased a First Class ticket. Her conclusion was that the train company was racist.
Pity we can send her sorry arse back to Uganda.
45 million Americans on foodstamps! Hundreds of thousands crossing from Mexico to the US every year.In the UK Welfare and Housing Benefit up 40% under Labour and still rising, overseas ‘aid;’ to the corrupt rises while defence spending is cut to the bone.UK immigration staight onto welfare continuing unchecked as ordered by the EU.
Eurocrats, in the person of incomprehensible ,jobsworth deadweight called the ‘Economic Commission’demonstrate their moronic arrogant,irrelevance while the Euro staggers over the cliff.
The West is heading for a catastrophy of imbalance. created by the Liberal/ Left Elite on both sides of the Atlantic -their time is clearly over. Empty Suit /empty headed Obama and everything his bankrupt philosophy stands for are the road to total disaster -surely he cannot be re-elected?
Meanwhile the Chinese watch and smile beningly.
“Meanwhile the Chinese watch and smile beningly.”
The Chinese told the US that they better get their house in order and do some trimming of their budgets because they owe them a shedload of money
