The Copenhagen Climate Conference began last Monday, 7th December. In the run-up to it, emails were published that showed dissent by scientists from the view that global warming is largely man-made. It is an issue whose truth has become self-evident – rather like the existence of God to the medieval mind – so that anyone who questions it is clearly of doubtful character.
Global warming as an issue has become completely politicised – rather like the MMR vaccine in the UK – and any hope of objective truth went out the window a long time ago. As a scientist, your career and reputation would not last long if you questioned this ‘truth’. No doubt there will be inquiries some years down the line into whether governments suppressed the truth, in the same way that we are inquiring in the UK at present into how the government decided to go to war in Iraq. I don’t expect much in the way of truth to be revealed.
The Copenhagen Conference was starting around 9am GMT on Monday, and as you can see Mercury and Pluto were exactly conjunct and Rising, in square to Saturn. A perfect configuration for words (Mercury) that suppress the truth (Pluto) due to institutional demands (Saturn/Capricorn). It is also a very dynamic and ambitious configuration, suggesting the conference will achieve a lot, despite the suppression of truth.

The Conference is also about a new vision (Jupiter-Neptune) about how we manage our resources (2nd House) that will heal the damage done by technology (conjunct Chiron in Aquarius). This conjunction was being activated through its opposition to the Moon and Mars, but being in the 8th, also hints again at the suppression of truth.
