Noxious gasbag.

South Africa’s peace icon Desmond Tutu on Friday urged the United States to reject Canada’s Keystone XL pipeline, saying the “carbon bomb” would upend the US role fighting climate change.

“The verdict on whether to approve or reject the Keystone XL pipeline could, in just one stroke, confirm or condemn America’s prospects for climate leadership,” said the letter, released by the advocacy group Avaaz.

“This is a US policy decision that will have truly global significance. Keystone has been called the ‘fuse to the biggest carbon bomb on the planet,’” said the letter, timed for the final day of a public comment period on the pipeline.

In a time of turmoil all over the globe, a clergyman most noted for winning the Nobel Peace prize is babbling about the world’s greatest superpower needing to worry about “climate leadership.”

Whatever that is.

Such is the state we find ourselves in as the almost complete detachment from reality ushered in by the Obama era takes hold internationally. Academic feel-good fallacies take precedence over real-world concerns in what begins to seem more and more like a dystopian novel every day. While people are actually in great peril in any number of turmoil-ridden areas, a respected world figure calls a jobs-creating project that almost no one opposes anymore a “carbon bomb,” as if that’s what we need to worry about.

The selective panic that liberals engage in is the most pressing danger facing humanity. Concrete problems are festering and exploding almost daily while they chase after battles with phantoms that they’ve made real inside their diseased hive mind. While they are patting themselves on the back for banning plastic grocery bags, Vladimir Putin is getting his Soviet 2.0 plan rolling.

We might want to look into curbing this.

Archbishop Tutu has long come across to me as a "progressive" liberation theologian who will do exactly as you say: embrace the position that seems to blame the rich and the West.
But he wants the vaccinations and he wants the aid.

I have the very strong impression that Tutu can be persuaded to say just about any politically correct thing anyone needs said and will not bother to fact-check before he does so.

I remember seeing an item on W5 (similar to 60 Minutes but Canadian) in which Tutu visited an Indian reserve in northern Ontario and was shown some of the homes in which their people lived. Tutu made a point of clucking mournfully over the house of one old woman and actually likened it to the worst excesses of Apartheid. To be fair, the house was a shack. However, his guides, members of the Indian tribe, failed to point out that the much nicer house next door was ALSO the home of the old woman; in fact, it was where she had moved a few months earlier. So, while she had indeed lived in a dump, she was now living much more comfortably. My strong impression was that Tutu simply generated whatever sound bites his hosts thought desireable. I saw no evidence that he had done anything but take them at their word.

As for the ethics of the Indians themselves, the journalist interviewed the chief, who turned out to be the only man in the tribe who had ever finished high school. The journalist had actually done his homework and observed that the tribe had long complained about the quality of their water. He noted that the tribe had asked for an expensive water treatment facility but the government had offered a brand new water truck instead, a vehicle that was intended to go to a nearby lake, fill up with good water, then truck it back to the Indian village periodically. The Indians agreed that this was a satisfactory solution and the truck was bought and delivered to a nearby car dealer. The Indians didn't pay a cent for the truck and had only one obligation: to have someone in the village drive it to the clean water source periodically and bring back some good water. The journalist had discovered that the shiny new water tanker was still sitting at the dealership a year after it had been delivered. No one had ever bothered to pick it up.

Desmond Tutu, like his contemporary, Nelson Mandela, is a communist redistributionist. Leaders of third world countries are embracing the climate change scam precisely because it is a scam, and offers endless opportunities for graft.

I wonder if Tutu agrees with Al Gore that African population and development must be limited:

I started reading some Avaaz articles after a friend sent me a link to something they were saying about the Syrian civil war. Then I got the email from Avaaz with the above quote a couple of days ago. I submitted a request to no longer receive emails from them because of this very climate Keystone XL hysteria.

Cheaper gas prices would do more for job growth, buying power for minimum wage earners, and the economy in general than all the silly plans the Democrats keep coming up with.

I understand Desmond Tutu is a very nice guy from a few people who know him. He has seen a lot of misery due to Apartheid. But like Jesse Jackson and Co., he still sees everything shaped by his experiences long ago. Being a nice guy gives him zero credibility on matters of science.

Man would it ever. Imagine gas being 2.00$, which is still far higher than it should be but I digress, for me in Minnesota that would represent 1.59$ back in my pocket per gallon. It doesn't take someone with a mastery of math to see the immediate benefits.

It was no accident that this recession started with gas prices climbing to $4 or $5 per gallon. Buy gas to go to work to have money to buy food or pay this month's mortgage payment? Oh, but with $4 or $5 per gallon gas, food prices are increasing. Now my house is worth less than I owe and I can't afford payments...so a million people default on their loans. That's what higher gas prices do.

Your understanding of Desmond Tutu is dead wrong. He is not a nice guy, he is a racial supremacist. Youve been duped more than once in this post of yours.

Quite possible. The people I know that speak highly of him knew him from some 30 years ago and most of my knowledge of him is from that era. Even mafiosos and hitmen seem nice over dinner and drinks. I'll look into his current activities a bit deeper. The Avaaz article that got me receiving their stuff was pretty good. Most everything since then was leftist garbage, and I appreciate hearing other sides to arguments, so I never bothered to tell them to stop sending it until I received this completely idiotic email screeching about the supposed horrors of the Keystone XL pipeline that was filled with misinformation, rumors, and impossible predictions. I decided enough was enough.
