Copenhagen: Greedy UN Children Fight over Piggy Bank
Schwarzenegger, Obama promise to force Americans to pay
by Anne Wilder Chamberlain
China and the U.S. hit an impasse December 14 at the Copenhagen climate change conference, with China refusing to accept outside monitoring of its first-ever goal for reducing emissions, and the U.S. saying it wouldn’t support any deal without strict verification of China’s progress. A Chinese official said other countries could do more to help reduce greenhouse gases by copying China’s controversial “one-child” policy.
Developing countries also walked out on the Copenhagen climate talks. The BBC reported that negotiations were suspended after developing countries withdrew their co-operation. One of the reasons why nations like China and India boycotted the summit was because the negotiations were doomed once poorer countries learned of the globalists’ neo-colonial agenda, the UK news said.
However, the U.S. media completely failed to highlight the real reason behind the walk out – the fact that funds from climate financing, originally allocated to go to the UN and then be doled out piecemeal to third world nations, would instead be paid directly into the coffers of the World Bank and IMF, organizations that have made a habit of looting poorer countries with crippling debts that cannot be paid back, forcing such countries to hand over their entire infrastructure to globalist loan sharks.
Paul Joseph Watson of Prisonplanet.com reported that billionaire elitist George Soros told Copenhagen delegates how poorer nations would be forced to take on $100 billion in what he described as “green loans” in the name of combating climate change, a policy that would saddle the already financially devastated third world with even more debt, payable to globalist institutions such as the IMF. The proposal would entail third world countries paying back interest to the governments (i.e. banks) of richer nations to stem a perceived crisis that they had little or no involvement in creating.
Leaders of third world countries were horrified to discover that developed nations would take on less of a burden than anticipated and that more would be demanded of poorer countries despite the fact that any further cuts in CO2 emissions would cripple what remained of their flimsy economies and poverty-stricken people.
British Global Warming skeptic Lord Monckton stated that the true purpose of the “global warming” scare became nakedly visible on December 17 when Hugo Chavez, the socialist president of Venezuela, blamed “global warming” on capitalism – and received a standing ovation from nearly all of the delegates, including those from left-leaning capitalist nations of the West. Robert Mugabe, dictator of Rhodesia, - who refused to leave office recently even though he had been soundly defeated in his country’s election, also won applause for saying that the West ought to pay him plenty of money in reparation of their supposed “climate debt.”
Monckton was assaulted and knocked out by Danish police later that same day.
Meanwhile, leading business leaders joined mayors at the Climate Summit for Mayors at Copenhagen City Hall to herald the benefits for public-private partnership in funding sustainability projects.
Sir Richard Branson of the Virgin Group encouraged mayors to run their cities like “great companies.” He advocated continuing with climate initiatives even if an agreement could not be reached.
“If governments do not come to a resolution then I think it’s up to businesses to actually force through resolutions to this issue,” Branson said.
He continued, stating that industry needs to find imaginative ways of reaching targets, much in the same way that cities need to find imaginative ways of engaging the private sector.
World Bank President Robert B. Zoellick highlighted the effective utilization of private institutions as a method of leveraging funds for climate adaptation.
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger added December 15, “I would ask the UN to convene a climate summit like Copenhagen, but for cities, for states, for provinces and for regions, and I would be more than happy to host such a summit in California or anywhere else the UN wants to hold it.”
Then cometh the savior
Obama arrived in Copenhagen on December 17 to a conference in shambles. The green-grabbers looked to him to save the day.
China and the U.S then sought to give the negotiations a boost with an announcement and a concession. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Washington would press the world to come up with a climate aid fund amounting to $100 billion a year by 2020, a move that was quickly followed by an offer from China to open its reporting on actions to reduce carbon emissions to international review.
Obama spent the final scheduled day of the climate talks - Friday, December 18 -huddling with world leaders, including Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, in a bid to salvage the global warming accord amid the deep divisions between rich and poor nations.
By Friday evening, Obama said the United States, China and several other countries had reached an “unprecedented breakthrough” to curb greenhouse gas emissions — including a mechanism to verify compliance.
According to Clean Skies News, NASA and the Internet’s primary gate keeper, Google proposed teaming up to track emissions and deforestation. If nations like China refuse to allow international tracking of their CO2 emissions under the world climate deal, Google has offered its new Earth Engine - a massive storing house for satellite and other freely accessible information that can track deforestation.
NASA’s potential solution is an Orbiting Carbon Observatory, a carbon emissions tracker. NASA has flown right along with the “global warming” propaganda even though its own data has shown a worldwide cooling trend since 1998. NASA’s earth sciences chief said the satellite could be up in orbit within three years if the project gets federal funding. White House science chief John Holdren sounded supportive of the project.
Google recently announced its ambition of creating the most comprehensive database of personal information ever assembled, one with the ability to tell people how to run their lives, asserted The American Free Press in November. Considering that, according to one of the CIA’s own people, Google is heavily in bed with the Central Intelligence Agency, allowing these two businesses to become the world’s policemen is a frightening proposition.
