Even if you don’t happen to believe that Bilderberg is the sinister organisation that really rules the world, what cannot be denied is that its secretive meetings do to tend to attract some pretty high-level insect overlords.

Here’s the participants list for their latest get together in Telfs-Buchen, Austria later this week. It includes everyone from the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell and the President of the Royal Bank of Canada to the German Minister of Defence to British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne to retired General David Petraeus to none other than the Prime Minister of Belgium. Far more interesting than who’s in on the conspiracy, though, is what’s on the agenda. Or rather what’s not on the agenda.

Have a look at this list of urgent crises facing the world. And see if you can tell what’s missing:

The key topics for discussion this year include:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Cybersecurity
  • Chemical Weapons Threats
  • Current Economic Issues
  • European Strategy
  • Globalisation
  • Greece
  • Iran
  • Middle East
  • NATO
  • Russia
  • Terrorism
  • United Kingdom
  • USA
  • US Elections

Well, what’s not there, for some bizarre reason, is the threat that President Obama and his Secretary of State and most of the rest of his administration have repeatedly been assuring us represents the single greatest problem in the world today.

Indeed, just a month ago, the President reiterated this vital and urgent message in his address to the Coast Guard Academy.

Climate change, and especially rising seas, is a threat to our homeland security, our economic infrastructure, the safety and health of the American people. Already, today, in Miami and Charleston, streets now flood at high tide. Along our coasts, thousands of miles of highways and roads, railways, energy facilities are all vulnerable. It’s estimated that a further increase in sea level of just one foot by the end of this century could cost our nation $200 billion.

Stupid, sinister, pesky Bilderberg. Didn’t anyone get the memo?
