I find it ironic that the new Paris Climate Change deal is called COP21 which is short for 21st Conference of Parties. It’s could just as well be short for 21st Century Cop it seems. That is, a global climate change cop which is the role this deal places into the hands of the UN at the expense of U.S. sovereignty.
I also find it interesting that by 2018 the 200 countries in the deal have to submit their climate change plans in 5 year increments. Five year planning is straight out of the Communist playbook for the “planned”economy model. A model used by the tyrannical, brutal regimes of Mao Tse Tung and Josef Stalin, both of whom were Communists as well as avowed atheists.
5 Year Planning- A Successful Model to Emulate?
It was during Mao’s 5 year Great Leap Forward from 1958 to 1963 that over 40 million people starved to death under the failed agricultural policies of that intended leap forward. Unfortunately, for the people, (You know of the “power to the people” group.) it was a leap backwards in both population and production. And unfortunately, truly a dead end for millions. Jasper Becker‘s book on the topic Hungry Ghosts wrote about an article that appeared in Hong Kong’s Kaifang Magazine in 1994 which related a case where:
“Parents ordered their 7 year old daughter to boil some water to cook their little son. When the baby was eaten, the daughter was told to boil some more water. Realizing that she would be next she knelt down, ‘begging her father not to eat her and saying “I will do anything if you do not eat me.”
Cannibalism during the Great Leap Forward was not uncommon BTW. Becker devoted an entire chapter to the topic in his book.
Five year planning is a Communist economic hallmark and has inevitably failed, time and again. It is also a tell tale sign of where this climate change deal is coming from as well.
BTW, What Happened to Global Warming?
Another interesting facet of this deal is that in recent years as global temperatures have dropped the catch phrase for saving us from ourselves (by placing government in complete authority over energy production) has changed from global warming to climate change. So, what happened to global warming? Why the change of catch phrase?
As global temperatures have dropped, the name was changed to save face when climate facts trumped media and UN hype. It also had the added benefit of confusing the public as well. Global warming is a known commodity. Climate change though? That is as nebulous a description as the “war on terror”. Meanwhile, the Federal government is busy expanding the definitions for labeling one a terrorist.
The label climate change is just as nebulous. I mean really what is scary about climate change? I live in a temperate zone. The climate changes 4 times a year. Do I now need to have these changes regulated? We have Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. I sure am thankful that the government has stepped in to regulate the change of seasons. I guess……anyway.
Can there perhaps be something more to this climate change stuff than meets the eye?
Obama Applauds the Agreement- So Does the CFR
Obama was smugly happy that his Marxist buds’s in the UN passed the deal. In an address from the White House he said:
“I want to give a special thanks to Secretary John Kerry, my Senior Advisor Brian Deese, Chief Negotiator Todd Stern and everyone on their teams for their outstanding work and making America proud. I also want to thank the people of 200 nations, large and small, developed and developing, for working together to confront a threat to the people of all nations. Together we have shown whats possible when the world stands as one. Today the American people can be proud because this historic agreement is a tribute to American leadership. Over the past 7 years we’ve transformed America into the global leader in fighting climate change.“
First of all, the deal has the footprints of the globalist, bankster led Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) all over it. John Kerry is a member of this insider group. Todd Stern, mentioned as Chief Negotiator, is a member of the CFR as well. Sure enough, the CFR site applauds the deal as well with a lead article entitled, Two Cheers for the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
Obama tells us that we are “making America proud”? He tells us today, “Americans can be proud”? He tells us “we’ve transformed America into the global leader in fighting climate change?
First of all, what are Americans supposed to be proud of exactly? Fighting climate change? Didn’t know we were in a fight to begin with. I thought climates simply changed naturally. I don’t remember asking him to push for this deal that trades away American sovereignty to the UN. Personally, having less of a nation and part of a group of 200 plus on which we are on a level playing field with tiny, undeveloped nations doesn’t make me swell with American-based pride. But hey, maybe that’s just me.
The fact is, most Americans have little to no idea of what is going on here? To me, this is yet another example of the authority of the State advancing itself into the position of parent over the citizens seen as its children. The negotiators for this deal are members of elitist globalist organizations like the CFR, whose members include all of the too big to fail banks and whose honorary Chairman is David C. Rockefeller. Are we to be proud that they are making broad based decisions for us? Particularly since those decisions benefit Corporations and not the people in the end. Lets take a closer look at that part.
Cui Bono? “To Whose Profit”
Rolling Stone wrote an article in 2010 called the Great American Bubble Machine. It was an article directed primarily at Goldman Sachs, Founders level Corporate member of the CFR. The 6th bubble covered in the article was global warming (It was still global warming then instead of the more nebulous climate change label of today.). They discussed a key component of the Paris deal, then known as Cap and Trade aimed at climate control but rather control of energy production. Here’s what they had to say about it:
The new game in town, the next bubble, is in carbon credits — a booming trillion dollar market that barely even exists yet, but will if the Democratic Party that it gave $4,452,585 to in the last election manages to push into existence a groundbreaking new commodities bubble, disguised as an “environmental plan,” called cap-and-trade.
The new carbon credit market is a virtual repeat of the commodities-market casino that’s been kind to Goldman, except it has one delicious new wrinkle: If the plan goes forward as expected, the rise in prices will be government-mandated. Goldman won’t even have to rig the game. It will be rigged in advance.
Here’s how it works: If the bill passes, there will be limits for coal plants, utilities, natural-gas distributors and numerous other industries on the amount of carbon emissions (a.k.a. greenhouse gases) they can produce per year. If the companies go over their allotment, they will be able to buy “allocations” or credits from other companies that have managed to produce fewer emissions. President Obama conservatively estimates that about $646 billion worth of carbon credits will be auctioned in the first seven years; one of his top economic aides speculates that the real number might be twice or even three times that amount.
The feature of this plan that has special appeal to speculators is that the “cap” on carbon will be continually lowered by the government, which means that carbon credits will become more and more scarce with each passing year. Which means that this is a brand new commodities market where the main commodity to be traded is guaranteed to rise in price over time. The volume of this new market will be upwards of a trillion dollars annually; for comparison‘s sake, the annual combined revenues of all electricity suppliers in the U.S. total $320 billion.
Goldman wants this bill. The plan is (1) to get in on the ground floor of paradigm-shifting legislation, (2) make sure that they’re the profit-making slice of that paradigm and (3) make sure the slice is a big slice. Goldman started pushing hard for cap-and-trade long ago, but things really ramped up last year when the firm spent $3.5 million to lobby climate issues.
In addition to the windfall to leading Corporate members of the CFR, Al Gore applauding the deal above is also heavily invested in the potential cap and trade industry. He stands to profit handily from this deal. So is it any wonder that both the CFR and Gore applaud this deal?
More American Sovereignty Handed Over
While the Corporate motivations are transparent, Obama’s is a little more concealed. The fact is, Obama is trading away more of our self-governance to the UN (A CFR construction from the get go BTW.) He hasn’t been the first President to do so. It’s been going on for decades. Heck, every time our troops are placed under NATO, they are transferred from U.S. troops into UN troops. This, of course, never makes it to the public through our mainstream media.
The ultimate control in this deal is the UN as well. “The agreement calls for a signature ceremony in April 2016, and requests that the U.N. Secretary-General keep the agreement open for signing until April 2017.”
This places the U.S. on an equal playing field with all of the countries in the deal “large and small, developed and undeveloped” as Obama put it in his White House address.
But Wait, There’s More!
Oh yes, and in addition to the loss of sovereignty to the UN and its Communist oriented membership; a significant and steady rise in energy costs and Corporate cronyism, there is yet another poke in the eye of the American public. “The agreement calls for developed countries to raise at least $100 billion annually in order to assist developing countries.”
Well now, where do you think the lion’s share of that money will come from? Guess who will foot the bill? Hint: It won’t be Corporations.
I wonder just how proud are we going to feel while we are adopting more taxation along with significantly rising cost of energy while the privileged few Corporations feast on our offerings? We are already taxed to the tune of over half of our incomes meaning we are wage slaves half a year. Do we need even more taxes? Does this fall into the Obama, “Change We Need” part of the Obama plan to save America?
Under a Marxist economy, you level wealth down by increasing taxation and transferring the wealth. Don’t look too closely but that is exactly what this plan does!
Don’t know about you but I see the New World Order being unfolded right before our very eyes.
Debt is growing. The State is adopting more control over the citizens. More of our Constitutionally granted sovereignty is being handed over to the global government template, the UN.
Meanwhile, most of us are wrapped up in who will win Survivor, The Voice and the Super Bowl or another equivalent major sport.
Like the Lost Boys in Pinocchio, we are playing while our so-called leaders are turning us into wage slave donkeys. Hee haw, the jokes on us and it ain’t funny.
