Bonn Update: Deception is the name of the game

The UN learned long ago that public opinion is the fastest way to promote their agenda, much faster than trying to herd national delegations to a decision

An interim conference with its low key atmosphere gives the UNFCCC a perfect opportunity to encourage public relations by the business community, local elected officials, and especially young people to participate in meetings.

These citizens are invited to a meeting on a specific topic relevant to climate change.  A facilitator conducts the meeting giving the group an assignment asking for their ideas to deal with the problem. The ideas are shared and even written down but no matter what form the ideas take, there’s already a predetermined outcome in mind.  Once the facilitator leads the group to the preferred outcome, the group forms a consensus.  The exercise provides a feeling of ownership to the participants who then go home and talk about it.

One of these meetings was held last week on education or Article 6 of the climate change document and the invited guests were young people.  It turns out the discussion was framed around “difficult transformation globally” or “transforming social values and behaviors” through education.  The young people were given the assignment of coming up with ways to convince others about climate change to change their behaviors.

One speaker told the young people, “education needs to empower all learners to acquire ….the knowledge, the skills, the values, and the attitudes that are relevant to sustainable development.…education in the end is not about succeeding as part of the educational process, it is really about changing societies.”

The real purpose of this meeting was to change the values and behaviors of the those participating, teaching them to spread deception.

Other groups of citizens are being just as duped by the UNFCCC this week as meetings are being held on renewable energy, capacity building, nationally determined plans, and the Lima-Paris action agreement.  These citizens will then go home and talk about how important it is to fight global warming.

UNFCCC Executive Secretary, Christiana Figueres said, “the stars have been aligning for success as policymakers, business and citizens increasingly agree on the transformational notion and the solutions to climate change.”

The UNFCCC uses the same protocol for their international conferences with the President of the COP as the facilitator.  Nations have been meeting since 1992 to form a consensus for the predetermined idea of global warming.
