Gadaffi Fall – Saif al-Islam And The European Environmentalists
Saif al-Islam now wanted for war crimes, was the acceptable face of the Gadaffi regime regarded more as an international playboy than the son of a despotic psychopath, Saif was welcome everywhere he went by people such as Lord Peter Mandelson who was then a Labour Cabinet Minister, Labour peer Lord Nathaniel Rothschild; Saif claims that former Prime Minister Tony Blair is a personal friend.
The whole acceptable face of the tyrant was one giant con that sucked many people into it, there are more than few public figures who are going to have some explaining to do in the near future.
At the time Saif conceived the idea of the Green Mountain Conservation and Development Authority Climate Religion and hysteria were at their peak, and Saif knew how easy it would be to con the ecomentalists desperate to appease the giant CO2 wolf that Al Gore had terrified them with:
But the most audacious plan Saif dreamed up was to capture the hearts and minds of Europe’s environmentalists. He claimed he was interested in transforming Libya into a environmental oasis, a new “green” paradise. This promise enchanted Euro-environmentalists. Here was a progressive Mideasterner, a member of the 30-something generation who would bring environmental nirvana to a North African state.
Saif commissioned British architect Lord Foster to oversee the development of the “Green Mountain” area of Libya, near Benghazi. He invited Robert Adam, Prince Charles’ favorite architect, to attend the inauguration in 2007. It had the feel of a lavish Cannes film festival in the desert — few of the environmentalists seemed to express misgivings about the rather large carbon footprint.
Adam later told the Guardian:
They laid on a dinner, a tented hotel, flights in private jets, the works.
It was hailed by environmentalists as the “world’s largest sustainable development.” Lord Foster told the attendees about the project:
This is one of the most beautiful and little-known landscapes on Earth. We’ve been give a unique challenge: to establish a sustainable blueprint for future development which will be sensitive to the history of the Green Mountain and to its conservation.
The heart of the environmentally sustainable complex was to be a series of exclusive hotels.
The attendees at the environmental gala seemed oblivious that while they partied in excess, 40% of Libya’s people lived below the poverty line. And half of Libya’s young are unemployed. This for a nation with the largest oil reserves in Africa.
Googling Green Mountain Conservation and Development Authority returns over 200,000 results, none of which are more recent than September 2007.
The ecomentalists were in raptures, the Guardian had what can only be called a journogasm:
On Monday, in the ruins of the Green Mountain’s ancient city of Cyrene, Gadafy’s second eldest son, the bookish Saif al-Islam Gadafy, nervously announced the ambitious scheme to a crowd of VIPs, local dignitaries and journalists. “We must build our own societies in a way that minimises the release of greenhouse gases, while allowing every citizen to share in the social and economic benefits of well-planned development,” he said in halting English, before signing the extremely important-sounding Cyrene Declaration.
The declaration basically says everything the world would want to hear: sustainable development; archaeological conservation; eco-tourism; renewable energy; environmentally responsible town planning; micro-banking; education; biofuels; even production of “the finest quality organic food and drink”. In essence, it was a declaration that Libya are now more interested in saving the planet than bankrolling terrorists
“Libya are now more interested in saving the planet than bankrolling terrorists” , if you believe that, then it’s a synch that Climate Religion is a workable belief system for you; as both are founded on wishful thinking and fantasy.
