A disturbing messianic complex?

Monte Kuligowski-

Politico reported that, “President Obama and world leaders are on the verge of finalizing a climate deal that caps the global temperature rise at 1.5 degrees,” just before the “Copenhagen Accord” was confirmed.

My first thought was: That sounds like something from the Justice League cartoon. After accepting that this lunacy is real life stuff, my second was: I have never read a more arrogant statement in my life.

While they were at it maybe they should have agreed to keep the earth on its orbit. Or perhaps they should have agreed to prevent the sun from having its violent outbursts.
After all, these were Obama’s words on the campaign trail:

I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment . . . when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal. This was the moment - this was the time - when we came together to remake this great nation.

That’s what all the fawning and fainting produced: A disturbing messianic complex.

I suspect Rajendra Pachauri suffers from the same messianic complex - as he jet sets all over the globe endlessly giving off gases(not from his immediate person, thankfully) in large dollops(443243 miles on IPCC business in 19 months!)-the same gases that he wants the rest of us to drastically reduce by not eating meat, not flying, not drinking ice-water,not living like civilized people in general.Maybe he really does think he is a sort of prophet and his exertions will save the mankind from it's own sins.Megalomaniacs are generally unaware of their own smallness.A possible case for psychoanalyst's couch then.

From Instapundit -
".......the National Institutes of Health issued a statement saying that one researcher who claimed that EMFs and cancer were related had falsified data.” Then he went into climate research, presumably.
