United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

A Global Carbon Tax?

Will the United Nations wield its unproven claim that greenhouse gas emissions cause climate change to require each of its 193 member nations to measure and report GHG emissions, a prerequisite for a global carbon tax? Does it really matter whether next year’s meeting in Paris, France, produces a treaty or a “soft law” document or both?

Todd Stern, head of the American delegation at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Lima, Peru, says the U.S. is “perfectly happy to have an assessment process”

Obama’s Quest for Power at America’s Expense

Greenpeace International is seeking help from President Obama during the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Lima, Peru that concludes on December 12. Greenpeace wants him to “lead the international community to a strong, legally binding climate agreement.” After all, he made the commitment last November 12, in Beijing, China to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 28% below 2005 levels by 2025...”regardless of approval by the Republican Congress.”   Read more »

New, Legally Binding Treaty Emerges on First Day of UN’s Lima Climate Conference

UN Conference on Global Warming or Global Wealth Redistribution? And why was Lord Christopher Monckton Evicted?

The United Nations conference on climate change met in Qatar last week, with the purpose of making plans to deal with the supposed impending disaster that conferees believe will flow from global climate change caused by increased levels of manmade CO2 in the atmosphere. No mention in anything that I read about the conference of the fact that only 3% of the CO2 in the atmosphere is manmade, and all the rest is just a naturally occurring element, which is vital for life on earth.   Read more »

“Complete Transformation of the Economic Structure of the World”

The United Nations is meeting in Qatar to negotiate a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world,” explained Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change at a Monday press conference.

“What is occurring here, not just in Doha, but in the whole climate change process is the complete transformation of the economic structure of the world. It should happen much quicker, but it cannot happen overnight,” she added.

Figueres concluded, “This Conference of the Parties will produce a second commitment period to the Kyoto Protocol, the only legally binding agreement. It will have the necessary amendments to go into a second

International Revolution to Create a Global Tax Scheme

Science does not motivate the 195 parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change; instead, it is the Green Climate Fund’s potential jackpot of trillions of dollars.

The UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres says a “revolution, the largest, most deeply rooted revolution mankind has ever seen, a deep transformation,”

Doha, Qatar: Perfect Laboratory to Study Climate Change

The U.S. is negotiating at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Doha, Qatar, a new legally binding treaty to cap and trade greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide that is emitted when fossil fuels are burned.

Since 1997, the U.S. has wrestled with a proposed GHG cap of 7% below 1990 levels by 2012. The U.S. Senate never ratified that treaty called the Kyoto Protocol

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.
