PAUL DRIESSEN & DUGGAN FLANAKIN Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised that his Administration would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” One clue to what he meant was his comment to now-congressional candidate Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” Not necessarily – especially when activists, regulators, politicians and ruling elites do all they can to ensure there is less and less wealth to spread around. Just this week, the Civil Society Reflection Group on Global Development Perspectives released a new report to the United Nations Rio+20 Earth Summit on Sustainable Development. The executive [...]
Belo Horizonte, Brazil. To advance public action on global warming, participants attending the ICLEI World Congress admitted today that they are deliberately employing new terminology to misdirect opponents and gain acceptance of their efforts to reduce energy use and greenhouse gases. By utilizing terms like “sustainability” and “sustainable development,” the group wants to mask its objectives and disarm would-be critics who might otherwise oppose their agenda, ICLEI attendees confided with CFACT representatives at the conference.
The International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is calling for economic "contraction" in America and the rest of the developed world. Their "World Congress" conference in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, however, is a lavish affair replete with rich food, champagne and opulence. The blatant hypocrisy is stunning.
Is Fidel Castro your eco-hero? Do you think we need confiscatory taxation, wealth transfers and socialism? Are you prepared to change your lifestyle and live as Greens gathered in Rio de Janeiro decide? If Europe is not sufficiently progressive and needs to shift further left, what are they planning for the United States? We're still at the planning conference for major groups. This weekend, 45,000 more people are traveling to this UN summit. It is hard to imagine what we are seeing and hearing multiplied by that kind of magnitude, but that is what's coming. Take a look at our video [...]
Yesterday was our first day attending the Rio+20 pre-conference, and boy did we have an interesting time! The radical Greens are out in force, calling for rights for "Mother Earth" and for billing individuals, governments and corporations for their eco-debt. Watch the video to see what CFACT has been up to at this conference. CFACT is back at the conference today as well, documenting the radical policies they want to impose on you through their "The Future We Want" document.

The future we dread: Marked-up draft of UN Rio+20 agenda reveals shocking “sustainability” wish list
Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday, June 12, 2012 CONTACT: Russell Cook, 1-602-753-9141, [email protected] The future we dread Marked-up draft of UN Rio+20 agenda reveals shocking “sustainability” wish list. An American family of four could owe the UN $1,325 per year. The United Nations plans to make its Rio+20 Sustainable Development Conference “the most significant environmental conference in history.” A draft planning and agenda document, “The Future We Want,” marked-up by myriad ultra-liberal NGOs, provides an unvarnished look at what lurks behind Rio+20. “Americans, their free world partners and people in developing nations who hope to lift themselves [...]
C F A C T Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow ADVISORY FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, June 8, 2012 CONTACT: Russell Cook 602-753-9141 [email protected] What's not to like about sustainable development? For starters, UN Rio+20 Conference threatens people, prosperity, and nature too. CFACT will be there: exposing, debunking and offering constructive solutions. Rio+20 is the next, huge, misguided, harmful Green push. Radical environmentalists hope the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development can carry on where climate change left off (after the public saw through the propaganda). It is the same agenda, the same exaggerated crises and cataclysms, the same anti-hydrocarbon, anti-development [...]

On Tuesday, CFACT conducted a highly publicized parachute drop which called attention to Climategate 2.0 (details including usable video of the drop and Lord Monckton jumping from the plane at www.CFACT.tv). The Wednesday [...]
Earlier today, CFACT's skydiving team parachuted past COP17 onto Amanzimtoti beach. The divers trailed smoke and banners proclaiming "Climategate 2.0, Science Not Settled" and "No New Treaty." Multiple media outlets showed up to record the event, including the AP, BBC, and South Africa's national news network. It was a huge success! Climategate 2.0 can not be ignored! The second batch of emails from scientists working on the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change contain shocking revelations which show an insular cadre of climate scientists coordinating efforts to place advocacy ahead of science, stifle dissent, and conceal information which detracts from a [...]

The mood at this year's UN climate conference is subdued. Perhaps fearful. In CFACT's talks with the representatives of government, business, even the more radical NGOs, we've yet to find anyone confident that a successor treaty to the Kyoto Protocol will emerge in Durban. The usual sideshow has been assembled. You can find rows of displays making their standard pleas for your tax dollars. Wind farms, solar, mass redistribution in the name of “climate justice,” and all the usual scare tactics have assembled. Oxfam actually sat at a conference table they had carried into the waves of the Indian Ocean. But [...]
By Lord Christopher Monckton of Brenchley Mainstream science, politics, bureaucracy, academe, banking, business, media – all were of one mind. The West, so the playbook ran, must be shut down at once to Save The Planet from “global warming”, er, “climate change”, um, “climate disruption”, no, “extreme-weather events”, ah, that is, “energy-security challenges”. Shale gas? That would solve everything. Hundreds of years’ global supply. No more peak oil. Low carbon footprint. Ban it quick. I find myself with CFACT in Durban among the creatures of “consensus” for the annual UN climate gabfest. Yet the party line was wrong. At a recent [...]
By Kelvin Kemm From my vantage point here in South Africa, I could hardly miss the major build-up to the COP-17 United Nations world environment and climate conference, which is being held November 28 to December 9 in Durban, where I went to school and university. For weeks international news broadcasts spoke of “the road to Durban,” and people of all ranks made daily comments concerning issues to be addressed at COP-17. Conference organisers announced that bottled water would be limited, or even prohibited, because making, shipping and disposing of plastic bottles was not environmentally sound – and in any event [...]
C F A C T The Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 23, 2011 Climategate 2.0 exposes climate science hypocrisy on eve of UN's Durban Conference A second batch of leaked emails from scientists working on board and alongside the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have come to light. They contain shocking revelations which show an insular cadre of climate scientists coordinating efforts to place advocacy ahead of science, stifle dissent, and conceal information which detracts from a preconceived, ideologically driven, global warming narrative. This shockingly candid look at the machinations of the high priests of global [...]
By Kelvin Kemm PRETORIA – From my vantage point here in South Africa, I am aware of the momentum of the major build-up to the next big United Nations world environment conference, COP 17, which will be held in December, in Durban, the city where I went to school and university. I am honored to be part of CFACT's delegation to the Durban conference. We've certainly got our work cut out for us. We hear of ‘the road to Durban’ on international news broadcasts and, daily, people of all ranks are making comments on the issues to be addressed at COP [...]
