UN climate official admits global warming truth on billboard outside Colorado Rockies stadium, says it's just a cash transfer

   "But one must say clearly: We distribute by climate policy de facto the world's wealth around. ...This has to do with environmental policy... almost nothing....The climate summit in Cancun end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War."...

"Climate protection has hardly anything to do with environmental protection, says the economist Ottmar Edenhofer. The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which it relates to the distribution of resources."

At least two other UN climate officials, Pachauri and Figueres, have made similar statements:

12/19/2007, UN IPCC Chief Pachauri (pictured below with Al Gore): "I am not going to rest easy until I have articulated in every possible forum the need to bring about major structural changes in economic growth and development. That's the real issue. Climate change is just a part of it."".

10/9/10, Christina Figueres, UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Exec. Sec.: "I understand there is disappointment with the multilateral process but this issue is not easy. "This is the greatest societal and economic transformation that the world has ever seen."

"COP President Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, Faisal Al Suwaidi and H. H. Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, both of the Qatar Foundation, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres, and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) Director Hans Joachim Schellnhuber," 12/5/12, Climate conference at Doha, Qatar

Billboard earlier in 2013 exposed the unfortunate myth of disappearing polar bears:



4/25/2013, Congressional testimony citing 15 year global warming pause:

p. 3, "Since 1998 there has been no statistically significant increase in global surface temperature."...


UN IPCC Chief notes 17 year pause in global warming:

2/21/13, IPCC Head Pachauri Acknowledges Global Warming Standstill,” The Australian, Graham Lloyd

"The UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri, has acknowledged a 17-year pause in global temperature rises, confirmed recently by Britain’s Met Office."...


UK Met Office notes pause in global warming since 1998:

1/18/13,Climate change: scientists puzzle over halt in global warming,” Der Spiegel, by Axel Bojanowski (translation from German)

"The British Met Office forecast even more recently that the temperature interval could continue at a high level until the end of 2017 - despite the rapidly increasing emissions of greenhouse gases . Then global warming would pause 20 years."..."The exact reasons of the temperature standstill since 1998, are not yet understood, says climate researcher Doug Smith of the Met Office."...

If you got your news only from broadcast television networks for the first half of 2013, you wouldn't know the scientific consensus that global warming has "paused" for at least 15 years:

7/11/13, "Networks Do 92 Climate Change Stories; Fail to Mention 'Lull' in Warming All 92 Times, ABC, CBS and NBC ignore 'mystery' warming plateau in favor of alarmism about sea levels, allergies, weather." Wall St. Journal, Julia A. Seymour

"Just since Jan. 1, 2013, ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news programs have aired 92 stories about "climate change" or "global warming." Not a single one of those stories mentioned the "warming plateau" reported even by The New York Times on June 10."...
