Maurice Strong has Died

May his movement die with him…

UN: Maurice Strong, Climate and Development Pioneer, Dies

Maurice Strong, whose work helped lead to the landmark climate summit that begins in Paris on Monday, has died at age 86, the head of the U.N.’s environmental agency said Saturday.

The Canadian-born Strong, the first U.N. Environment Program chief, organized the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, which led to the launch of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change.

“Strong will forever be remembered for placing the environment on the international agenda and at the heart of development,” Achim Steiner, executive director of UNEP, said in a statement.

The statement did not provide details of Strong’s passing.

Expect a great deal of emotional dreck as folks in Paris try to “commemorate” him and his “efforts” (to fleece the world…)

IMHO, the world just became a better place and there IS hope in the world…

Not to say I’m going to party on his grave, but I’ve opened a nice bottle of red. For the “wake”, of course

    Yup I too will lift a glass to cheer him on him way.
    Shame his colleagues just reclaimed power up here.
    CAGW has an awful lot of Laurentian Canadian input.
    I am sure the obits will laud the hell out of this career leach and bandit, with never a mention of his orchestration of the Oil for food fiasco in Iraq.
    Maurice is a classic example of a career kleptocrat.

    Hopefully the Liberals will bury him next to Pierre the Idiot(Trudeau) so when I do my cross Canada trip I can pay my respects to both.
    One beer should provide enough fluid.

    Thank you for this posting. In death he met the reality that he denied in life.

    The death of his intellectual work is all but complete upon his passing. I wait, a hiatus, until rights have been over him and his funeral done to continue severe criticism of his intellectual legacy.

    As the IPCC Paris circus approaches, Maurice Strong, one of the initiators of fear-mongering the masses has passed away. He has died.
    Inventor of scamming people and conning politician through the smoke and mirror argument of ‘sustainability’, he spawn a whole useless industry of worthless ‘sustainability’ products.

    Christiana Figueres, the current head of the U.N. climate agency, tweeted Saturday that “we thank Maurice Strong for his visionary impetus to our understanding of sustainability. We will miss you.” I find it hard to fault this comment from a communist whose relevance to the modern world has long passed.

    Not to be out done and displaying how easily duped politician are, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who will be attending the climate summit in Paris, said in a statement that “Mr. Strong was an internationally recognized environmentalist and philanthropist who used his remarkable business acumen, organizational skills, and humanity to make the world a better place.”

    So good-bye Maurice, may the world yet recover from your efforts.

    Let’s hope he finds plenty of warming in the place he is heading to.

    Sadly I believe that the nature of the afterlife is such that you never get to know how wrong you were.

    As a Canadian, I second that motion about uncorking a nice Cabernet. And I propose a toast to Strong’s example being followed shortly by David Suzuki and Gordon McBean.

    It will go on, some other scamming bastard will take his place and raise the wanted three trillion the poor parasites need to justify their existence.

    I won’t dance on his grave. But, should I ever be in the vicinity, I might just take a crap on it.

    Thank you, E.M. Smith, for allowing me to post a most unpleasant but seemingly undeniable FACT:

    The UN’s Climate Conference in Paris is just the conclusion to:

    1. The 70-year plan by the USSR and NAS to rule the globe, and

    2. The Catholic Church’s ~500 year plan to hide from the public

    the actual Creator & Sustainer of every atom, life and planet in the solar system:

    Feel free to ask any scientist to comment, criticize, or correct the above evidence of scientific fraud.

    What amazes me is how many people will follow these fools. This gave me a smile.
