As you read this story, don’t forget to thank your lucky stars that Al Gore is here to help make sure the United States also does its part to save the world from global warming:

KICUCULA, Uganda — According to the company’s proposal to join a United Nations clean-air program, the settlers living in this area left in a “peaceful” and “voluntary” manner.

“I heard people being beaten, so I ran outside,” said Emmanuel Cyicyima, 33. “The houses were being burnt down.”

Other villagers described gun-toting soldiers and an 8-year-old child burning to death when his home was set ablaze by security officers.

“They said if we hesitated they would shoot us,” said William Bakeshisha, adding that he hid in his coffee plantation, watching his house burn down. “Smoke and fire.”

According to a report released by the aid group Oxfam on Wednesday, more than 20,000 people say they were evicted from their homes here in recent years to make way for a tree plantation run by a British forestry company, emblematic of a global scramble for arable land.
[...]
But in this case, the government and the company said the settlers were illegal and evicted for a good cause: to protect the environment and help fight global warming.

Sounds like some pretty horrible things are happening in the name of saving the planet from a profit-driven hoax.

Too bad the New York Times didn’t use a title that is thick with the irony the story deserves: “Low income Africans protected from ravages of global warming: Poor blacks hardest hit”

Remember this video? Nobody thinks these people were only joking, do they?

    Apparently some Africans are mistranslating the phrase as "doing it to the children…", instead of "for" the children.

    Aha! So, if the Bush Administration had just justified the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as "protecting the environment", it would have been hunky-dory!
    Cool!

    Makes you wonder if Gore is tied to the British tree company?

    And to ease their own guilt, they put unbearable pictures of starving African children to get good Christian Americans (and lots of non Christian) Americans to send money to support those poor Africans who have lost their homes due to "global warming." and funny…the money never seems to GET to those poor people who lost their homes, does it? Nobody would be surprised if that donated money did not go right into the "global warmng" hands of Al Gore.

    Oh sure, poor villagers being shot and killed, children being burned alive, black victims, evil corporations… you can make ANYTHING sound bad when you put it THAT way.

    Makes one wonder if this doesn't fall in rather nicely with the darwinian dogma that people are just animals. If we're animals, why can't we be exterminated, or euthanized, controlled, corralled, studied, et al …? Survival of the fittest where "the fittest" are those with power and money. It's the devil's world.

    I have to wonder if muslims aren`t the ones doing the burning ! It isn`t mentioned anywhere, but I don`t doubt it.

    "Profit-driven Hoax" … so stealing that !

    The reader to be able to predict what might occur later in the story. In other words, it is a technique in which an author drops subtle hints about plot developments to come later in the story. Thanks for sharing the informative post. Regards.
