Climate realists for years have been warning that the entire global warming myth was politics, not science. And above all, it was a scheme to redistribute wealth under the guise of saving the planet.
In a document obtained by FOX News, the United Nations has confirmed suspicions, and made it official. FOX News executive editor George Russell reported Friday:
A United Nations document on “climate change” that will be distributed to a major environmental conclave next week envisions a huge reordering of the world economy, likely involving trillions of dollars in wealth transfer, millions of job losses and gains, new taxes, industrial relocations, new tariffs and subsidies, and complicated payments for greenhouse gas abatement schemes and carbon taxes — all under the supervision of the world body.
Those and other results are blandly discussed in a discretely worded United Nations “information note” on potential consequences of the measures that industrialized countries will likely have to take to implement the Copenhagen Accord, the successor to the Kyoto Treaty, after it is negotiated and signed by December 2009.[...]
The 16-page note, obtained by FOX News, will be distributed to participants at a mammoth negotiating session that starts on March 29 in Bonn, Germany, the first of three sessions intended to hammer out the actual commitments involved in the new deal.
In typical UN bureaucratic language, the negotiators are known as “the AD Hoc Working Group On Further Commitments For Annex I Parties Under the Kyoto Protocol”. The Consequences, if adopted, would be world-changing. The UN is well known for overreaching power grabs, and for utter corruption as well. Remember “Oil for Food?” That UN scheme was supposed to allow Iraq to sell enough oil to buy food on the world market for their people. It ended up in the pockets of UN Bureaucrats and Saddam Hussein — millions and millions.
What would this agreement mean if adopted? Loss of sovereignty, loss of control over trade , manufacturing, energy production and business in general. Destruction of our economy. Little things like that.
The problem is that the case for global warming is falling apart, not only because the planet has been cooling for the last decade, but because the UN’s IPCC claims are proving false, one by one. The climate is always changing. It has been far warmer in the past — times like the Medieval Warm Period — the best climate ever known, and far colder during periods like the Little Ice Age, and the Dark Ages. This year saw snow in Saudi Arabia for the first time known.
Carbon Dioxide is not a pollutant, but a colorless, odorless gas that is essential to life. In the atmosphere it is only a trace gas, and the amount produced by human activity is too small to measure. It is, however, a natural fertilizer that makes plants grow. The amount now in the atmosphere is at the low end of what is required by plant life for optimum growth, and as the earth is currently cooling, more CO2 would help.
The EPA is busily trying to regulate CO2 as a pollutant dangerous to man (certainly the amount of hot CO2 exhaled in the chambers of the Capitol building is increasingly dangerous) but the rest of us exhale it every time we breathe. There is a lot of power grab behind that designation. The EPA has a disgraceful record including the designation of DDT as too dangerous to be used and thereby killed millions of children from preventable malaria by not being allowed to spray their huts with DDT.
Europe is retreating from all the green mandates. Cap and Trade has been devastating. Green jobs have not been forthcoming. Goals of carbon reduction have not been met. Wind has not been reliable in spite of vast subsidies, and colder weather has begun to emphasize the need for more energy to keep warm, while Russia rations supplies of natural gas.
Do read the FOX document linked above. Be persistent in getting past the bureaucratese, there are details on page 6. FOX News Blog’s article is here, and Rick Moran’s article from American Thinker is here. Take the time to read.
If times were normal, we could depend on Congress to reject this whole thing promptly. But these are strange times, and there are strange and dangerous ideas abroad.
