The UN's duplicitous attempt to use fear of climate change as a springboard to amassing unprecedented new power has by now been fully exposed, and the UN did it to themselves, in part by choosing Warsaw, Poland, as the site of the COP 19 shenanigans. CFACT President David Rothbard was loudly cheered by Poles as he exposed the real intentions of the UN, and the fallout continues.
One might say that the good people of Warsaw are Poles apart from the UN's view of fossil fuels, which amounts to an outright condemnation of coal and suspicion of oil and natural gas. CFACT President got perhaps the warmest reception of his life when he spoke at a Polish independence day celebration that was also broadcast live to millions more on Polish national television. His message was simple: the UN's clearly stated goal is worldwide wealth redistribution and a UN-headed global government -- and the war on carbon is not about a cleaner environment or a more prosperous society at all.
by Einar Du Rietz The Rio circus has barely started and already, reports are streaming in on plans for international taxation schemes, close to police power for the UNEP…believe me, the list will be longer. For regular reports from our team in Rio, check out www.cfact.org . Meanwhile, in Europe, the environment ministers don’t want to appear less bold. Reports Euractiv: “The EU’s 27 environment ministers have set out the key elements of the bloc’s environment policy for decades to come, calling for “an ambitious and compelling 2050 vision for a green Europe” that decouples economic growth from environmental degradation.” Lot’s [...]
by Einar Du Rietz Bureaucracies and weed have the thing in common that when not controlled, they grow beyond control. The same goes for governmental organisations, supra national or others, with the addition that it’s most often difficult even to find out who’s in charge, what the mandate is, not to mention the plan. Delegates and functionaries, as well as paid scientists seem to be on a constant world tour, with one only goal in common, to grow and find enough solid ground and symbolic conflicts to justify next year’s tour. The only thing certain is that someone else will have to [...]
by Einar Du Rietz “Assumption is the mother of all fuck-ups”, my former colleague, the environmental affairs director, liked to quote his favourite actor Steven Seagal as saying. It could be read as an argument for the precautionary principle of course, but it could also be interpreted as an argument for precaution against political action. There’s an important difference here. If I choose, or choose not, to sniff the milk before I pour it into my coffee, I’m the only one affected if my calculation is wrong. If I choose to change the lifestyles and even livelihood for all my fellow men, it’s better [...]
U.N. makes new push for climate treaty in Bonn this April. Treaty would infringe national sovereignty without benefit to world climate. LORD CHRISTOPHER MONCKTON (Wisconsin)
“Climategate” as an argument for a World Environment Organization The sudden but not unexpected resignation of the head of the UN Climate Secretariat in Bonn Ivo de Boer is feeding speculation about an imminent collapse of the whole global warming swindle. Only a few days earlier, Phil Jones, a leading member of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former director of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, substantially admitted in the British newspaper “Daily Mail”that the accusations on the basis of leaked confidential e-mails from CRU (“Climategate“) were well founded, i.e. that the [...]
Par Edgar L. Gärtner Carbon Fraud is paving the way for a dictatorial world government While EU representatives are praising the European Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) in Copenhagen as panacea, European law enforcement agency Europol is revealing that carbon credit fraud has caused in the past 18 months more than 5 bn euros damage for European taxpayers. In some countries up to 90 percent of the whole trading volume was caused by fraudulent activities. It is easy and perfectly legal for small dealers who have experience in computer and cell phone trading to buy European Unit Allowances (EUA) in one EU member [...]
by Edgar L. Gärtner (Frankfurt) Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 2009 ancient soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, now president of the NGO “Green Cross International”, wrote an editorial for The London Times . In this article Gorbachev is, perhaps involuntarily, confirming the hypothesis that the real aim of the “Earth Charter” proposed by his NGO is promoting world communism under the new “global sustainable community” label. He asserts that “in the 1980s the world was at an historic crossroad. The arms race had created an explosive situation. Nuclear deterrents could have failed at any [...]
