The UN Makes it Official: Global Warming Hysteria Is All About Redistributing Wealth

The UN Makes it Official: Global Warming Hysteria Is All About Redistributing Wealth

By Noel Sheppard
Associate Editor,

For years, climate realists around the world have been warning the international community that the entire man-made global warming myth and resulting hysteria is all a scheme to redistribute wealth under the pretense of saving the planet.

In a document obtained by FOX News, the United Nations has made it official.

As FOX News executive editor George Russell reported Friday:

A United Nations document on “climate change” that will be distributed to a major environmental conclave next week envisions a huge reordering of the world economy, likely involving trillions of dollars in wealth transfer, millions of job losses and gains, new taxes, industrial relocations, new tariffs and subsidies, and complicated payments for greenhouse gas abatement schemes and carbon taxes — all under the supervision of the world body.

Those and other results are blandly discussed in a discretely worded United Nations “information note” on potential consequences of the measures that industrialized countries will likely have to take to implement the Copenhagen Accord, the successor to the Kyoto Treaty, after it is negotiated and signed by December 2009. […]

The 16-page note, obtained by FOX News, will be distributed to participants at a mammoth negotiating session that starts on March 29 in Bonn, Germany, the first of three sessions intended to hammer out the actual commitments involved in the new deal.

Some of the ideas discussed in this document eerily resembled what NASA’s James Hansen wrote to Barack Obama last December:

A rising carbon price is essential to “decarbonize” the economy, i.e., to move the nation toward the era beyond fossil fuels. The most effective way to achieve this is a carbon tax (on oil, gas, and coal) at the well-head or port of entry. The tax will then appropriately affect all products and activities that use fossil fuels. The public’s near-term, mid-term, and long-term lifestyle choices will be affected by knowledge that the carbon tax rate will be rising.

The public will support the tax if it is returned to them, equal shares on a per capita basis (half shares for children up to a maximum of two child-shares per family), deposited monthly in bank accounts. No large bureaucracy is needed. A person reducing his carbon footprint more than average makes money. A person with large cars and a big house will pay a tax much higher than the dividend.

Maybe more concerning, Obama’s 2010 budget proposal includes a carbon cap-and-trade scheme, although there is some question as to whether this will survive the coming battle on Capitol Hill. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos reported last Friday that cap-and-trade will likely be sacrificed this year as Obama and Congressional Democrats focus attention on health care.

Beyond this, recent polls have revealed an increasing skepticism by the public concerning the veracity of media reports regarding global warming. These same polls also find that the appetite for expensive solutions during a recession is waning.

Add to this the recent findings which suggest the current cooling trend that began in 1998 could last for at least another decade; the folks looking to use this manufactured crisis as a means of redistributing wealth must be realizing that the window of opportunity is starting to close.

As such, they may believe this upcoming December meeting in Copenhagen is their last chance, thereby making this 16-page document a formal game plan for what is likely the beginning of a nine month full-court press.

Let’s be honest, folks like Nobel laureate Al Gore have their reputations and their very fortunes on the line here, so we should all expect a great deal of hysterical media coverage in the near future — especially after the hurricane season begins in May.

Here’s my advice, America: Prepare now for the coming storm.

Welcome to The Conservative Edge!

Thanks for visiting. Let me start off by saying..I AM NOT A POLITICIAN! But, as a God fearing, hard working, tax paying citizen of the greatest country on earth, the United States of America, I have been getting extremely concerned as to the direction our leaders are trying to point our country. We seem to have forgotten all about what our great nation was founded on. We are heading to destruction if we, THE PEOPLE, don't take some action and stand up for what is right.

In our daily lives, we are constantly bombarded by the liberal media. It's brainwashing everyone into a way of thinking that suits the whole democrat/liberal/socialist agenda. I don't buy it. Not one bit. It's all lies, and it's all part of a larger plan, a plan that will be the demise of our freedoms that true Americans hold so dear.

I will always love my country, and those that fight for it. Though I in no way agree with some (not all) of our leaders, I have to pray for them daily. I pray that somehow through divine intervention they realize enough is enough and we have to get our nation back on track.

This blog is dedicated to all of the more conservative views and news that usually never hit the liberal media air waves. And, if you are a liberal, please understand I am in no way attacking you for what you believe. I simply wanted a place that, if you spend a little time here, to read some of the 'other' views. I think it will allow you a chance to see things differently. I have no choice but to read, watch, or listen to the liberal view because the media is deluged with it.

The posts that will be found here are just daily snippets of news from others, I don't write these..but are for sure worthy of reading and trying to understand. Sometimes they will just blow your mind.

Thank you for visiting and please leave comment if you wish.

God Bless America
