A Global Carbon Tax?

Will the United Nations wield its unproven claim that greenhouse gas emissions cause climate change to require each of its 193 member nations to measure and report GHG emissions, a prerequisite for a global carbon tax? Does it really matter whether next year’s meeting in Paris, France, produces a treaty or a “soft law” document or both?

Todd Stern, head of the American delegation at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Lima, Peru, says the U.S. is “perfectly happy to have an assessment process”

U.S. Deeply Involved in Climate Change Treaty

The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change treaty has been profoundly important to Americans ever since it was signed by former President George H.W. Bush and ratified by the Senate in 1992.

Under the UNFCCC, a new treaty is being negotiated in Lima, Peru to cap and tax greenhouse gas emissions that are emitted when fossil fuels are burned to produce America’s energy that maintains our enviable standard of living.

Obama’s Quest for Power at America’s Expense

Greenpeace International is seeking help from President Obama during the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Lima, Peru that concludes on December 12. Greenpeace wants him to “lead the international community to a strong, legally binding climate agreement.” After all, he made the commitment last November 12, in Beijing, China to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 28% below 2005 levels by 2025...”regardless of approval by the Republican Congress.”   Read more »

New, Legally Binding Treaty Emerges on First Day of UN’s Lima Climate Conference

At a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Lima, Peru, delegates from 196 parties are drafting a new legally binding treaty to replace the 1997 Kyoto Protocol that is to be completed next year in Paris, France. At the outset of negotiations, environmentalists are calling for the new treaty to mandate a cap and tax on greenhouse gas emissions to go into effect by 2020. And to eliminate the use of fossil fuels altogether by 2050.   Read more »

David Dewhurst: Genuine Texan

From the residents of the high plains to those in the urban centers of Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, you realize just how special Texans are. Texans are instantly recognizable for that mix of rugged individualism, a strong sense of service and a never-quit mentality inherited from our ancestors.   Read more »

Agenda 21 to Evolve into a New Legally-Binding UN Treaty in 2015

In a nutshell, Agenda 21 was a document to impose "sustainable development" across the globe.

It originated at a UN meeting in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and was signed there by President George H.W. Bush. After Bush's defeat, Bill Clinton issued an Executive Order creating the "President's Council on Sustainable Development." It is now embedded in all federal bureaucracies and trickling down to state and local governments through federal grants. For example, John Kerry recently called for a discussion of "climate change" at every State Dept. meeting.

Final Report from United Nations Climate Change Conference in Warsaw, Poland

The UNFCCC meeting in Warsaw, Poland, is finished! Great strides were made toward its stated purpose, a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.”

The U.S. caved to both funding schemes: “loss and damages” and to a deadline for commitments to the Green Climate Fund.

An international mechanism called the “Warsaw international mechanism for loss and damage” was created and work on funding is to begin next year.   Read more »

Auschwitz and Birkenau Picture Tour

I am attending the UNFCCC in Warsaw. As it is a 2 week long meeting, the weekend between is an opportunity to do sightseeing. I took a train to Krakow last weekend and Auschwitz is a bus ride from there. I've been to the Holocaust museums in Jerusalem and Washington, DC, but this museum surpassed both. It was a tragic reminder of our past. We must never let this history be repeated.

Will Cooler Heads Prevail?

Cool temperatures in Warsaw, Poland, were not enough to keep tempers from flaring at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Stalled talks on a new “loss and damages” funding scheme led to a walkout by China, plus 132 poor countries with less than two days left to negotiate. “Loss and damages” was added at last year’s meeting in Doha, Qatar, that would require rich nations to pay poor nations reparations for storms like the recent typhoon in the Philippines, based upon the false belief that climate change is due to greenhouse gas emissions.   Read more »

How Much Will a New Climate Change Treaty Cost and Who Will Pay?

Eleven thousand delegates attending the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Warsaw, Poland, November 11-22, to supposedly negotiate funding mechanisms for its 2009 Green Climate Fund to transfer $100 billion annually from rich to poor nations to build green economies and a new “loss and damages” fund for poor countries that suffer catastrophic damages blamed on rich nations’ industries that emit carbon dioxide.
