President Obama may be planning to sock his fellow citizens with a global tax on carbon dioxide imposed via a United Nations agreement known as a "soft law," one that technically does not require or even solicit Senate approval. The pathway toward this Lilliputian tax -- in which small, poor nations seek to siphon off much of the wealth of the American people -- began when President George H. W. Bush signed off on Agenda 21 at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. The assault on our liberties continues.
In Doha, Qatar late Saturday delegates attending the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change took concrete steps toward a new global treaty to address global warming that will transform the economic structure of the world with a new global tax. To be completed by 2015, the UN expects every nation to implement it by 2020, even though the globe has not warmed for the past 16 years.
