DDP states its position on Global Warming


11 December 2008


The Direct Democracy Party [DDP] says there is compelling evidence that the Global Warming phenomenon is a natural cyclic event, rather than one that can be attributed in any significant way to mankind.  

“Many people have blurred the lines of distinction between matters of ‘Global Warming’, ‘Climate Change’ and that of ‘Pollution’ says Party Leader Kelvyn Alp. “The obligation to minimise pollutants in our environment rests squarely at our feet, however, to introduce ludicrous and draconian measures that have an adverse impact on the lives of people and businesses, based on the false premise of being “our fault” is nonsensical, completely nuts and yet another example of revenue gathering” he says.

[A group of prominent Argentine scientists disputes the genocidal theory that human activity is the cause of global warming. Eduardo Tonni, head of the Paleontology Department at the University of La Plata, notes that, while it's not politically correct to dispute this theory, the evidence for global warming being a "natural" occurrence is far more compelling.


As reported by Perfil.com on Dec. 2, scientist Rosa Compagnucci, a researcher with the National Science and Technology Commission (Conicet), and former member of the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), stated at a recent conference at the Military Geography Institute that global warming is actually a phenomenon that has occurred quite frequently over the past 2,000 years. And, she noted, rather than being caused by carbon dioxide emissions produced by human activity, which many scientists accept as "irrefutable truth," it is much more likely related to "capricious" solar activity which, over a period of decades and centuries, has not been at all homogenous.


An author of two of the IPCC's 2001 reports, and an expert on the El Nino phenomenon, Campagnucci points to the period of global warming that occurred during the medieval period, between 800 and 1300, which she states was caused only by solar activity, and was what allowed the Vikings to make their trips to North America. With all the emphasis today on preparing for global warming, she warns, this could leave man unprepared to deal with the possibility of a new ice age. She notes that South America's Southern Cone just went through a brutal, record-breaking winter, which could be repeated in North America. Compagnucci references NASA's forecasts, which show global warming peaking by 2012, followed by a significant cold period as of 2030, which could result in another ice age by 2200.


As for natural disasters such as tsunamis or hurricane Katrina, Eduardo Tonni warns that there is little evidence that they are more frequent today than in the past. "The alarmism we see today," he argues, "is justified by the fact that it generates funds . . . Unfortunately, this is just another product of the market." – source http://www.cecaust.com.au/]


“It seems evidence that contradicts the vested interests of “carbon credit” trading entities or others with a personal or political agenda, is shouted down and those that stand against the status-quo labelled as “deniers”.  After careful consideration of opinion, evidence and fact, combined with a good dose of commonsense, we take the position that the hysteria whipped up around the entire “global warming” and the “mankind at fault” mentality is nothing short of an absolute scam” says Mr. Alp.

The Direct Democracy Party will have a full list of policies on its website www.ddp.co.nz for public consideration in the coming weeks and will continue to enhance and develop policy based on the ongoing and significant input from the public.
