Are you ready to have a Central American UN bureaucrat oversee a “centralized transformation” of your economy?

The Guardian published an interview with Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, did with Yale Environment 360.  In the interview Figueres, whose father and brother both served as President of Costa Rica, vows to achieve a new commitment period for the Kyoto Protocol in Qatar, aims to bring the United States into a binding climate treaty and was exceptionally candid about the UN’s goal to bring all world economies under UN central management.

Figueres told Yale that climate change will cause  world economies to undergo the:

biggest transformation that they have ever undertaken. The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective. This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different.

This represents a tremendous expansion of UN power over the United States’ and the rest of the world’s economies.

CFACT is on alert.

Figuere’s confidence that she can bring the United States into a full climate treaty by 2015 and the EU, Australia and much of the rest of the world into a new Kyoto commitment period before she leaves Qatar December 7th, indicate that she is likely receiving back room assurances that the negotiations are breaking through and moving fast.

How many new restrictions are set to be imposed and how many taxpayer dollars are  about to be wasted in the name of global warming?
