North Korea in the battle against climate change

korea arial view

This is truly beyond parody. From The Guardian, North Korea: an unlikely champion in the fight against climate change. As the story says:

North Korea’s energy security problem is well documented, revolving around four distinct challenges: supply, generation, power transmission, and secondary usage. Of these four challenges, electricity generation and transmission are the two that can be addressed through the UNFCCC.

Renewable energy may be the most appropriate vehicle for increasing generation capacity because unlike large centralised fossil-fuels, renewables can be scaled locally which reduces their up-front cost.

Just how batty are these people. From Powerline where Steve Hayward thought the story might have come from The Onion but this is so disconnected from reality that insanity comes to mind as a possible inspiration.

    Bwahahahahahahhahahahahaha!

    Pyongyang is cooperating with global strategy on climate change, writes Dr Benjamin Habib. The question is, why?

    Just ban the Left already. Get it over with.

    yes one must be careful as there are a few centre-right sites out there parodying the Left. The Left, of course, have actually become a parody of themselves.

  3. harrys on the boat

    Even the comments from the batshit crazy lefty Guardian readers are calling this shite out as batshit crazy.

    Its beyond parody.

    Yep – how that is in any way indistinguishable from a headline in the Onion is beyond me.

    Next we’ll see Milne, Ludlam and Hanson-Young lauding the NorKs as an example for Australia to follow.

    One guardian commentator blamed the US, when US has been feeding north Koreans for years. All the hand wringing by lefties like Fraser over Palestinian while millions of North Koreans have died of starvation, and continue to do do while the Kims play my nuke is bigger, one country where China could do some good but chooses not to.

    I hear that grass soup is very good at fighting the obesity epidemic too.

    What a shock, the country that forces its citizens to eat bark & burn their own dung for energy is held up an example.

    This truly is a parody.

    Notafan, NK is China’s bitch. They could stop it anytime but choose not to.

    Why is it no surprise that this fucktard is at La Trobe?

    Ben Habib.

    The real Habib would use him as a pipecleaner.

    Oh Panic attack. Thanks Rabz

    Notafan I have been to Shen Yang in Liaoning Province on three occasions on an ADB project. It is the HQ city of the Chinese Northern Military Command and sits above North Korea. The Chinese were quite open about their distrust of NK seeing it as a possible liability both economically and militarily as in a risk to their own stability. I was surprised at their openness – not at all what I expected.

    They treat it as a mad dog.

    Definitely not kosher RABZ. Anyway her taste was in her trotters as she had/has the hots for a frog.

    Mad dog, that they should put down ( the leader anyhow)

    Love the glowing understatement of, “an unlikely champion”. Oh yes, the Jong Uns are quietly doing their bit, putting us to shame every night.

    Could it be the zero increase in temperature for the last 17 years and 7 months is due to the sterling efforts of these champions? And let’s not forget Jong Un himself; like the hamster.. he obviously does not respire away his copious meals but subcutaneously stores them for enjoyment in the distant future . What a pity the peasants have not learned Jong’s skill.

    Soon we’ll hear about the concentrations camps from the Guardian, obvious early trend-setters and no doubt “well before their time” in showing the Way. George Monbiot will be eating his heart out.

    Moonbat is in to self harm? That’s good news.

    Its very worrying because the same disconnect from reality is shown now by the people apposed sorting out Australias budget.

  19. AJ

    Let’s not forget that the original article was published in the Conversation.

    Oh, and by the way

    Dr. Benjamin Habib is a Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at La Trobe University, Melbourne

    The heroic champion of the proletariat masses, Kim il Fatty, does not stand alone! He has Cuba as a pure and true-minded ally in the global fight against climate change, America and the Koch Brothers!

    What Cuba Can Teach Us About Food and Climate Change

    But if you want to see what tomorrow’s fossil-fuel-free, climate-change-resilient, high-tech farming looks like, there are few places on earth like the Republic of Cuba.

    Yes, you could say that.

    No it s not a parody article, the author is a true believer. You only need to look at his claim that “Climate change has already reduced global wheat harvests by 5 percent”. Whereas the actual data says something quite different.

    But lefties have to barrack for their side. Mere truth, after all, does not surpass tribal loyalty.

    North Korea is a classic example of what effect the measures to combat the non-existent would have.

    Can AGW get any crazier? Well, yes it can; we are living in strange times. I think the only way the greens and left can be brought to brook is for them to experience a taste of muslim justice.

    Now that, my friends, is an inconvenient truth.

    I understand Antarctica is doing a great job reducing its carbon emissions as well….although it may have to do better to stop the melting of its ice in the next 170,000 years…..

    What about the clear and present danger the Hermit Kingdom represents to humanity and, most immediately, to the millions of Koreans south of the border because of its hyper aggressive military posture. Isn’t this a bigger problem for the planet.

    Just twisted and biased reporting at all levels.

  29. mundi

    This isn’t crazy. This is what the left/greens want.

    They want everything to shutdown at night.

    They want everyone to have rationed energy, and government mandated jobs, government rationed food, with the ABC as the only source of media.

    NK is their dream goal.
