“Climate Change” is Not About the Environment, but About Redistributing Wealth
"The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War," proclaimed Ottmar Edenhofer, a German economist and cochair of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) Working Group III on Mitigation of Climate Change, reports in Investors Business Daily.
The candor about the U.N.‘s legally binding limits on greenhouse gas emissions set forth in its 1997 Kyoto Protocol aimed at globally redistributing wealth is welcome, but it is not pervasive in Cancun. The insidious scheme to force deindustrialization of 37 developed nations and to demand that those nations transfer their technologies as well as huge financial bonuses to the remaining 155 nations is Marxist to the core.
In a press conference on Tuesday in Cancun, Pablo Solon, Bolivia’s U.N. ambassador, proved the effectiveness of the ruse. He expressed deep dismay about the developed nations’ warning that the developing world keep their expectations low concerning the outcome of ongoing climate talks.
Ignoring “climate-gate” when emails exposed a corrupt analysis of weather data revealing the U.N.’s unscientific claims of “global warming” as well as “glacier-gate,” which likewise exposed a false claim made by the chairman of the IPCC that the Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035, Solon claimed that “global warming” caused Pakistan’s floods, Russia’s heatwave, the unprecedented Arctic snow melt, and his own country’s “limited resources and ever more unstable weather.” Solon called for “more radical measures” to move the “global warming” agenda using “mass popular pressure.”
Tragically his mindset is bolstered by grant-funded studies used to demand more drastic cuts in global emissions. A new series of studies written about in The Telegraph in the UK even calls for World War II style rationing stating that, “Unless emissions are reduced dramatically in the next ten years, the world is set to see temperatures rise by more than 4C (7.2F) by as early as the 2060s, causing floods, droughts and mass migration.”
Solon represents just one of those 155 nations demanding a new legally-binding treaty to accomplish the Marxist goals. We will learn over the next two weeks whether the U.S. and the 36 other developed nations can overcome the U.N.’s hot air.
