Other News Editor’s Note: As everybody knows, there will be no agreement or treaty in Copenhagen. Yet, this is what the right wing campaign is doing: look at it, to understand why Obama is slipping below 50% of popularity
The climate change summit in Copenhagen in December lurks the greatest threat to the free market since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Under the guise of the warming, the UN provides a “Government” with the capacity to collect taxes and redistribute wealth around the world.
Just scary. The draft on which they are working flat major powers in the face of the planet to reach a new agreement on climate change involving a battery against the free market proposals. The comprehensive document of nearly 180 pages, is the basis on which to build the Kyoto Protocol II, which will take effect from 2012.
Early this December, Copenhagen (Denmark) host the Climate Summit 2009, Where the UN member countries negotiate the signing of a new agreement to curb the dreaded global warming, whose origin, according to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), is due to emissions of polluting gases (CO2 ) generated by human economic activity. This is despite the mounting evidence who doubt this whole theory.
Last June, officials unveiled the project and its intentions clearly. Then the secretary general of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Yvo De Boer, Said he believes that Copenhagen would open the door to a drastic change in the “global industrial model.”
“I think we see an agreement in Copenhagen because of warnings from the scientific community have been very clear in saying that we must act now, and because The crisis has clearly demonstrated that we must radically change the economic growth model “. To this end, De Boer said the fight against climate change need “massive investment”, Near the 200,000 million dollars a year in 2030. A huge amount of money, which invoice shall be borne by taxpayers in developed countries.
The question is … How? How to implement a system of redistribution of wealth in the world? How to change the current industrial and therefore economic growth? How much money raised? How do I apply?
The answers to these and other issues are included in that Draft SummitA document held by the UN that, despite being public, is hidden in the tangle of massive documentation that manages the multilateral agency.
Specifically, the paper (also available in Castilian), Dated 15 September, lays down the broad lines of discussion as well as the different mechanisms being considered to implement Kyoto II, designed to create a “low-carbon society”. The options are varied, but instead the basic axes are transparent as water.
On page 18, the document states: “The new institutional settlement is reached under the Convention is based on three pillars: government, a clearing-house mechanism and a mechanism “.
And the “organization” of the new structure pivot on the following points:
“The Government shall be governed by the COP (Conference of Copenhagen), with the support of a new body [supranational] alternative and a adaptive Executive Board responsible for managing the new funds and facilitation processes [redistribution of resources from rich to poor countries]. ”
The financial mechanism includes the creation of a “multilateral climate change fund”, Referring to the 200,000 million annually to collect the new institution. In fact, in its annual report (World Energy Outlook 2009) Introduced last week in Madrid, the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimated at 10.5 trillion dollars (7.1 billion euros) new bill Kyoto Protocol until 2030.
To limit the increase in global temperature by two degrees Celsius (which translates to 450 parts per million CO2 equivalent) and the horizon of 2030, The IEA estimates that will require an investment of 10.5 trillion dollars by the year in energy-related sectors. 75% of that investment should begin by 2020 and OECD countries -the richest and most developed, including Spain, shall bear 48% of expenditure.
The draft establishes Copenhagen up to five “windows” different Funding within the General Fund, “Adaptation” is designed to promote green energy in less developed countries, “compensation” to meet the losses resulting from the production model change and harm alleged impact of climate change, promoting green technology; “mitigation” of climate change and other “forest”.
To manage this complex multilateral financial structure will be necessary create a new administrative body. A kind of “Government”As the original document (in its Castilian version This term is translated “administration”, but in English appears as “government”) cpowers of court on tax, financial and regulatory internationally.
Redistribution of wealth
The cost of adapting to the new global production system in developing countries will be borne by transfer of resources from rich powers (page 43). But how the huge raise money needed? The mechanisms involved are diverse: from the 0.7% of annual GDP of rich countries for mitigating CO2 emissions to an entire train of taxes and fees green global product, CO2 emission allowances to companies and sectors, trade in CO2 (the current mechanism Procolo Kyoto) …
In fact, the Summit went as far as possible introduce a tax of 2% on international financial transactions. A kind of Tobin Green that instead of fighting poverty (as originally conceived) would now fight the dreaded global warming (page 135, option 7).
Regarding the administrative organization, the draft shelled the basics of the new Government (pages 141, 142 and 143). It literally speaks of the creation of an “Executive Body”With full competence in financial, tax and regulatory environment. A “government” to collect, manage Climate Change Fund, redistribute among countries and direct the production model green worldwide. It is therefore a central planning agency.
Moreover, a simple search in the document the word “tax” (tax in English) gives a clear reflection of the intent of the new plan. While this term splashed across the paper draws attention total absence of the word “democracy” and “elections”. Because, if the goal is to create a new multilateral government in any case it is envisaged that the citizens elect their members.
The controversy has jumped to different international media in recent weeks. Thus, in a recent article in The Wall Street Journal, Janet Albrechtsen inveighed strongly against the summit, climate supposedly under the title Has anyone read the Copenhagen agreement?.
The tap came to light just days ago of the labor Lord Christopher Monckton, Climate skeptic and one of the main advisers to the former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher during his period of government.
On 14 October, Monckton attended a conference organized by The Minnesota Free Market Institute (USA). The full videoHanging on youtube, Has already received tens of thousands of hits. A extract of his speech subtitled in Spanish condenses the findings of his speech about the real threat to freedom posed by this project of global climate agreement.
Here are some pearls:
“The next December in Copenhagen a treaty will be signed, the U.S. will sign, most third world countries who need money will be signed, developed countries sign it, nobody will sign it. I have read that treaty, and what it says the treaty is this: That the world government will be created. ”
“The second purpose of the Treaty is transfer of wealth from the West to the Third WorldAnd the third section is devoted to law enforcement. How often appears in the treaty of 200 pages, the word referendum, democracy, elections, or something similar? None. ”
“What we will do is to impose a communist world, You have a president (Obama) who sympathize much with that ideology, and of course he will sign […] If this treaty is signed in the coming weeks your president will take your democracy, your freedom and your prosperity, and no other government or elected power can never recover. ”
As explained Nigel LawsonFormer Minister of Economy and Energy in the governments of Margaret Thatcher and a member of the House of Lords since 1992 and author of the book A cool look at global warmingThe “new religion” is ongoing and, of course, their provisions do not paint an optimistic future the free market.
