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 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, said the U.S. is “perfectly happy to have an assessment process.” He said this would produce “clear and understandable” Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) “so that everybody knows what others are doing.”
Stern added that all American actions are to “transform our economy.”
Measuring and reporting GHG emissions would indeed transform our economy by providing the UN with the criteria needed to create a carbon taxing scheme. They intend to use this to amass trillions of dollars to redistribute around the globe. After all, a carbon tax was a recommendation to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon from the High-Level Advisory Group on Climate Change Financing.
The UN wants a carbon tax to implement sustainable development, which is environmental, social, and economic equity, or “justice.” Social justice, climate/environmental justice, and economic justice are alluring terms that promise absolute equity to the masses.
Politically speaking, this is Marxist. And it would kill the geese that lay golden eggs, deconstructing national economies by phasing out the use of all fossil fuels by 2050 at the latest — a provision currently in the Lima draft.
PISS ON THE U.N.....'NUFF SAID.
F--K the UN.
THE UN HAS NO RIGHTS HERE THEY CAN GO TO HELL
THIS IS MORE OF THE USE OF THE EPA AND GLOBAL COMMUNISM
WE STAND IN THE WAY AS DOES ISRAEL THIS IS AGENDA 21
Why d we have the f__ckin UN anyway? And a red commie basturd as secretary?? We need to drop the UN like a real bad habit...All it does is impose us AMERICANS to more taxes and other un constitutional bull shit.....I say we need get the hell out of this un American commie/muslim group of assholes...excuse french.
Well said, Matt.
Guess no one told the UN they have absolutely no authority over our Constitution. Of course, obozo violates it constantly and no one in Congress will do anything about it. So they might be able to do what they please if obozo wishes it.
Climate change is caused by geo engineering period.
They have never done a darn thing in this world except bleed the USA for money. Give them a plane ticket and tell them to get the HELL out!!!!!!!!!!!
Taxing people that steal only causes those people to have to steal more. Taxing carbin only causes more people to have to make more thus running up more carbon to pay the tax. A never end of the snake swallowing his tail.
The U.N. is Very anti-Christian / anti-United States of America Everything / anti-Israel / anti-Zionism / Antiseitism!!
The U.N. is very UNCONSTITUTIONAL, KICK the U.N. OUT of our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America NOW!!
If there was no carbon, there would not be any life on this planet.
