The core of the Paris #ClimateConference is anti-capitalism

Hey, don’t take my word for it. That’s the assertion of a high UN official overseeing our fight to save the Earth from… something.

At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

As the article points out, that “economic development model” is capitalism, which is responsible for vastly improving the lives of billions in the last century-and-a-half.

Why? Well, the answer isn’t “climate change” or “global warming.” That’s just the excuse. Forty years ago, it was the fear of a new ice age, or the myth of overpopulation. Now it’s a super-heating world… that hasn’t warmed for over 18 years.

The real reason is the pursuit of the massive redistribution of wealth from developed countries to the “underdeveloped,” and control of that redistribution through the agency of transnational, democratically unaccountable bureaucracies. Ones from which the leaders, such as Sra. Figueres, will profit handsomely even as our economic prospects are hamstrung.

“Profit?” Oh, yes. This is the Solyndra subsidy and crony investment scheme on a global scale. In Ms. Figueres’s case, her Wikipedia entry provides a clue:

Christiana Figueres has not only been active in the public arena and in the field of NGOs, she also collaborates actively with private sector companies that align themselves with climate friendly goals. Ms. Figueres served as Senior Adviser to C-Quest Capital, a carbon finance company focusing on programmatic CDM investments.[40] She was the Principal Climate Change Advisor to ENDESA Latinoamérica, the largest private utility in Latin America with operations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru. She was also Vice Chair of the Rating Committee of the Carbon Rating Agency, the first entity to apply credit rating expertise to carbon assets.

Do the words “consulting fees,” “board memberships,” and “stock options” ring a bell? I’m sure you can spot the conflicts of interest and self-dealing.

That’s what the Paris conference is really about.


Green scam falls apart

The Goracle hates failure!

The Chicago Climate Exchange, set up in anticipation of a huge market trading carbon credits and which had as an adviser one Al Gore, has failed.

Darn. Breaks my heart.  The biggest racket since the mob figured out they could make money from Prohibition, and now… bupkus.

The global warming scam in action

February 25, 2010

How to lay off hundreds of people, end a nation’s steel industry, do nothing to clean up the environment, and make-off with a billion UK Pounds, all with British Government approval.

This is where the junk science religion of Anthropogenic Global Warming has very real and very harmful effects.
