At the United Nation's Global Warming Conference in Poland's coal country

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

It’s been a hectic couple of days of travel but we made it!

My videographer and I are on the ground reporting from the 24th annual UN Climate Change Conference in Katowice, Poland.

The Canadian government asked the United Nations to ban us from reporting inside the conference and the United Nations has complied with my own government’s demands to censor me as the only skeptical journalist at the event.

But we came anyway.

A ban has never stopped me before and it isn't going to stop me now. We are going to bring you all the sights and sounds of Katowice that the mainstream media, the United Nations and the Canadian government doesn’t want you to see.

Did you that the Spodek Stadium - the place where the conference is being held - is atop a reclaimed coal mine? This part of Poland is Eastern Europe’s West Virginia, the heart of coal country with mines in every direction.

Was it a slap in the face to coal miners to hold this anti-coal conference here? Or was it a strong message from Poland to the United Nations that coal is here to stay?

We’re going to try to answers those questions this week.

Please check out for all of our reports on United Nations conferences and to help support our journalism.

This is why we need The Rebel. All other media people there are cheerleader propagandists. Journalism used to be an honourable profession. Now they’re just spokespeople for the UN and government establishment pigs.

Hi Sheila Gunn Reid. Hope you brought some long underwear to Poland. Looking forward to your reports. Thanks for going.

Honest journalism by the UN does not exist. They tell you what to say and think. Their human rights record is worse than most countries, they are a bunch of liars and thieves. Good for our Alberta mom to show them up, but get home soon. Please be careful whilst in Poland. Europe is not like here. Politics are far more complicated. Trust no one, especially walking suits. Do not vacation there after, even if your friends said it would be great, your purpose there conflicts with higher ups. Always dress like everyone else and do not look around like a stupid tourist. Act like you live there. Buy some local clothing and especially footwear. Buy sunglasses at local store and wear them when in daylight always. Put away the equipment when finished out of sight. Go back to your hotel when you are done. If you are there naked without a babysitter, don’t do that next time. This is international and that girl in the coffee shop that runs into you again(with her appearance slightly or drastically changed) really is grey and following you. Even if they think you are chicken feed, it may be annoying at the least. Journalists always get special attention in Europe, you being thought of as an infiltration risk especially. Your phone is not clean, like everyone else there, what you say is heard by their assets, whoever that may be. Getting a clean phone will only work for a short time, although their repeaters are being monitored 24/7, it will take them a while to find you in the system. This advice has always steered me well and was from someone more learned than myself. Safe travels and remember when travelling, don’t be afraid to momentarily look paranoid and do extra cautious seemingly strange things to get away from someone that looks wrong, only the paranoid survive. Trust your gut. All my best, you are a gutsy lady. One last thing. Although these are extra precautions only necessary because of the event you are at, most of this advice for travel, works everywhere and is sage advice. By the way CSIS probably shadows you there already, but you may or may not have a European as the eye on occasion. I am sure you have had a talk somewhat like this before you left, hope I could add something useful….again safe travels!

Good point about us “deplorables” and how only the cheerleaders of climate change are let in. As usual, the elitist pigs have one set of rules while we peons must obey the others which are much stricter.
