This is Radio Free Broadcast Forty Eight, 19 February, 2018.
In this broadcast I talk about how when you look at climate politics you have to recognize that the average temperature of planet has not changed, measured from space using satellite based bolometers. There is the question of the standard deviation, which is not well understood by most commentators of climate is that the outliers in temperature are part of the standard deviation and is by itself not a sufficient measure of calamity. If you fixate on the outliers then you are missing the point … the average temperature appears constant. The outliers are telling us that the earth has a negative feedback which drives back towards an average temperature that appears somewhat stable. (note: The variation we have seen is less that one over the square root of the absolute temperature of the average temperature 1/sqrt(295) which is 0.058, which is nearly six percent. What we have seen is about 0.2 K over sqrt (295) which is 0.12 percent … far less than 5.8 percent.).
I talk about the South Korean Winter Olympics and how timely it has been and how this is an important step to a possible Peace-Treaty ending the state of war between North and South Korea. A Peace Treaty will involve all the nations that served under the United Nations mandate (I made an error in the broadcast mention NATO). I think the nuclear weapons that North Korea is not an “ … ace up his sleeve, but a joker …” I mention the bluster and imbalance that Khrushchev himself caused in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s and how that precipitated the Naval Quarantine of Cuba, and how Khrushchev was hoisted by his own petard.
The United Nations mandate is to seek a peaceful resolution to the Korean conflict and this is what the Community of Nations is trying to undertake. A Peace Treaty will require all the nations that participated in the conflict, including Russia, China, the United States, the UK, Canada, Norway, Sweden and all the other countries that had soldiers, sailors and airmen who participated in this conflict.
I remind the world that Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong and Harry S. Truman all agreed that the Korean conflict was to be a non-nuclear one and that North Korea in developing their nuclear weapons have breeched this undertaking. Have the North Koreans painted themselves into a corner?
I encourage the leaders of North Korea to make peace with the rest of the world and to turn to the good Offices of the Prime Minister and Parliament of Canada to help in this undertaking. Once again I invite the two Koreas and the world to Vancouver to sign a Peace Treaty and end the longest state of war in modern times, so that the two Koreas can be reunited the same way that the two Germanys were after the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe.
I make mention of the fact that Canadian diplomats are capable and trustworthy individuals who can assist in this undertaking. Canada was one of the founding nations of the United Nations. The discussions that lead to the creation of the UN began in 1943 at the Citadelle in Quebec City when President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie-King held their summit meeting to set in place what they felt was needed for a better post-war world. The first position as UN Secretary General almost went to Lester Bowles Pearson, but was vetoed by the Soviets because they felt he was too closely aligned with the United States and Britain. Mr. Pearson would later win a Nobel; Peace Prize for his role in establishing UN Peacekeeping.
Canada would be available to help denuclearize North Korea, as well as do away with the arsenals of chemical, biological and conventional weapons, with other countries like Norway and Sweden. These three countries can work closely together along with Switzerland to help in the post-Peace Treaty ear in North Korea. The diplomats from Canada, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland are well respected and trustworthy.
I contrast the ten billion dollars of weapons paraded in North Korea to the ten billion dollar debt that South Korea has for hosting their Winter Olympics … a contrast of War and Peace … ‘beat the drum of war’ or ‘let’s have a big party’ …
I am modestly optimistic that this will be the year that we will have a peaceful end to the Korea Conflict …
Perhaps Her Majesty the Queen can preside over the signing of the Peace Treaty on the deck of HMS Queen Elizabeth.
I also mention UBC acting once again as the fifty first state of the United States. I will talk in greater detail about this matter in a future broadcast.
I also mention a news article in the Metro that involved racial profiling about a UBC student and alumni and football player who was ticketed for jay walking in Vancouver. The UBC alumni violently disagree with the constables who then arrested him. I talk about why you are ticketed for jay walking and how other UBC students have died while jaywalking … The constabulary are to be respected and if you have an issue with a constable you can argue your case in front of a judge … don’t brawl with a constable! That is inappropriate behavior. The racial profiling by the Metro newspaper is particularly irksome.
I speak about the Oppenheim matter … about my letter to the Chancellor of UBC a former chief justice of the Appeals Court of BC regarding the Oppenheim matter .. Parliament reigns supreme in Canada, second that our Parliament of Canada have obligations under international law when they host conferences under the auspices of the United Nations and third that Oppenheim had not exhausted all other legal recourses, nor did he argue judicially or scholastically and that Oppenheim recourse to violence was inappropriate. The former Chief Justice of the appeals court of BC agreed with me … I am the only UBC alumni ever to get the better of this Justice in a legal argument …
You would think that accomplishment would be respected at a Canadian University … but UBC is neither Canadian … nor a University …
Along with being an officer and gentleman, a diplomat and a scholar … I am one of Canada’s great Parliamentarians. I believe there is no problem here in Canada or elsewhere in the world that cannot be made better by a good debate in Canada’s House of Commons.
