Climate Change Can Kicked Down the Road

The United Nations finally concluded its Climate Change meeting in Durban, South Africa at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, a day and a half late. Delegates did not create a new treaty to legally bind nations to limit greenhouse gas emissions to replace the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. Nor did they approve a global tax scheme to fill the Green Climate fund.   Read more »

ICLEI: Linking Local Governments to the UN Agenda

National governments will probably not adopt a new United Nations’ legally binding greenhouse gas emissions treaty in Durban, South Africa, but that does not protect Americans from the UN’s tentacles. The globocrats are employing its non-governmental organizations to entice local and regional governments to allow global bureaucrats to measure, report and verify their municipalities’ greenhouse gas emissions.

The Durban Adaptation Charter, an initiative of ICLEI, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, was signed this week by 114 mayors and other elected local leaders representing 950 local governments from around the world. ICLEI employs the same tactics to impose facets of Agenda 21 in hundreds of American communities that link local governments to global governance to implement the UN’s radical environmental agenda.   Read more »

The Green Agenda is Green With Envy

A legally binding cap on greenhouse gas emissions to replace the 1997 Kyoto Protocol that expires in 2012, and approval of a Green Climate Fund, a global tax scheme on carbon emitted by international aviation and shipping, are the two major objectives at the United Nations Climate Change meeting in Durban, South Africa. Both are facades for the UN’s true agenda, which is to stir up jealousy among nations so that they demand a redistribution of wealth by empowering the UN with the authority to tax, thus relieving itself of dependence upon dues paid by once-sovereign nations.   Read more »

Only Fools Believe that Money Can Prevent the Breezes of Hell

Contrivances are already being proposed to spend the $100 billion annual United Nations tax scheme called the Green Climate Fund before it is even approved at the Climate Change meeting in Durban, South Africa. While the GCF is supposed to be used to fund green projects in developing countries, Libya, with its largest proven oil reserves in Africa, wants the money to develop a desert heat project to replace carbon fuel.   Read more »

Fossils and Zulu Beehive Huts at the United Nations

South African leader Nelson Mandela said that, “It always seems impossible, until it is done.” Mandela rightly envisioned the statement to mean freedom regardless of race, an ideal entirely supported by Americans, but the United Nations’ use of the statement during the meeting in Durban, South Africa is not supportable.

When Mandela’s statement is applied to the UN’s legally binding greenhouse gas emission targets, which are either laughably ridiculous or absolutely insane, every American should take care lest the UN’s impossible dream be allowed to destroy our national sovereignty.

The 1997 Kyoto Protocol set legally binding limits on greenhouse gas emissions at seven percent below 1990 levels by 2012, but no country has been able to meet that goal because it would have devastated their economies.

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change: Durban, South Africa

“We’re all going to die in five years” unless a legally binding framework to cut greenhouse gas emissions is accepted by the 192 parties attending the United Nations’ confab in Durban, South Africa. That is how a question was couched to a group of environmental extremists who claimed that the United States, Japan, Canada and other developed countries are roadblocks to a “progressive and aggressive solution,” thus turning the annual UNFCCC meeting into a “traveling circus that cannot decide.”

Fifteen thousand attendees are expected at the Climate Change meeting representing 192 parties, 191 representing counties plus one for the European Union,
