Climate changers game plan revealed

December 9, 2011 by Don Surber

Having had their Global Warming fraud exposed, the United Nations bureaucrats continue to use changing the weather as an excuse to transform the UN into the world’s government, doing for the world what EU has done for Europe. Lord Christopher Monckton is covering their meeting in South Africa for Climate Depot. Here is a draft of what they are up to:

* A new International Climate Court will have the power to compel Western nations to pay ever-larger sums to third-world countries in the name of making reparation for supposed “climate debt”. The Court will have no power over third-world countries. Here and throughout the draft, the West is the sole target. “The process” is now irredeemably anti-Western.

* “Rights of Mother Earth”: The draft, which seems to have been written by feeble-minded green activists and environmental extremists, talks of “The recognition and defence of the rights of Mother Earth to ensure harmony between humanity and nature”. Also, “there will be no commodification [whatever that may be: it is not in the dictionary and does not deserve to be] of the functions of nature, therefore no carbon market will be developed with that purpose”.

* “Right to survive”: The draft childishly asserts that “The rights of some Parties to survive are threatened by the adverse impacts of climate change, including sea level rise.” At 2 inches per century, according to eight years’ data from the Envisat satellite? Oh, come off it! The Jason 2 satellite, the new kid on the block, shows that sea-level has actually dropped over the past three years.

* War and the maintenance of defence forces and equipment are to cease – just like that – because they contribute to climate change. There are other reasons why war ought to cease, but the draft does not mention them.

* A new global temperature target will aim, Canute-like, to limit “global warming” to as little as 1 C° above pre-industrial levels. Since temperature is already 3 C° above those levels, what is in effect being proposed is a 2 C° cut in today’s temperatures. This would take us halfway back towards the last Ice Age, and would kill hundreds of millions. Colder is far more dangerous than warmer.

* The new CO2 emissions target, for Western countries only, will be a reduction of up to 50% in emissions over the next eight years and of “more than 100%” [these words actually appear in the text] by 2050. So, no motor cars, no coal-fired or gas-fired power stations, no aircraft, no trains. Back to the Stone Age, but without even the right to light a carbon-emitting fire in your caves. Windmills, solar panels and other “renewables” are the only alternatives suggested in the draft. There is no mention of the immediate and rapid expansion of nuclear power worldwide to prevent near-total economic destruction.

* The new CO2 concentration target could be as low as 300 ppmv CO2 equivalent (i.e., including all other greenhouse gases as well as CO2 itself). That is a cut of almost half compared with the 560 ppmv CO2 equivalent today. It implies just 210 ppmv of CO2 itself, with 90 ppmv CO2 equivalent from other greenhouse gases. But at 210 ppmv, plants and trees begin to die. CO2 is plant food. They need a lot more of it than 210 ppmv.

* The peak-greenhouse-gas target year – for the West only – will be this year. We will be obliged to cut our emissions from now on, regardless of the effect on our economies (and the lack of effect on the climate).

* The West will pay for everything, because of its “historical responsibility” for causing “global warming”. Third-world countries will not be obliged to pay anything. But it is the UN, not the third-world countries, that will get the money from the West, taking nearly all of it for itself as usual. There is no provision anywhere in the draft for the UN to publish accounts of how it has spent the $100 billion a year the draft demands that the West should stump up from now on.

The real lunacy comes in the small print –- all of it in 8-point type, near-illegibly printed on grubby, recycled paper. Every fashionable leftist idiocy is catered for.

It is science, right, with numbers arbitrarily plucked from thin air, helter-skelter, for no reason other than to give control of the world to 1% of 1% of 1% of the people –roughly 7,000 people in the UN central office.

They cannot sell this One World crap on the public, so they shall shove it down (or up, depending on one’s viewpoint) the people. Just like Obamacare.

This is a cancer that is being used to cure hypochondria. Man is not causing the world to overheat. Sorry. I wish it were true. A tropical West Virginia would be so lovely to live in.

    Hey, this new International Climate Court must have one hell of a military arm if it’s planning to “compel” western countries to pay…

    “including sea level rise.”

    There is a given quantity of water on the planet and no more is being laid upon it.

    If it rises, where did it come from?

    As reports have shown “Scientists have been surprised by the findings, which show that some islands have grown by almost one-third over the past 60 years.

    Among the island chains to have increased in land area are Tuvalu and neighbouring Kiribati, both of which attracted attention at last year’s Copenhagen climate summit.

    In the study, researchers compared aerial photographs and high-resolution satellite images of 27 islands taken since the 1950s.

    Only four islands, mostly uninhabited, had decreased in area despite local sea level rises of almost five inches in that time, while 23 stayed the same or grew.

    Seven islands in Tuvalu grew, one by 30 per cent, although the study did not include the most populous island.”

  4. Pete says:

    The scary part is that people actually believe in this.

  5. Mick says:

    Unbelievable blather. I read the Climate Depot piece and couldn’t decide whether to quake, laugh, or upchuck. The UN seems to have become a lovefest of 60′s hippies married to old communists. International Climate Court of Justice? Huh? Loss of patent rights for climate-related technologies?

    Time to dump the UN on the grounds of insanity and irrelevance.

  6. gjsmith says:

    Just get out of the UN entirely, starting with Congress’ zero budgeting their entire allotment.

    What a bunch of idiots.

    But just in case .. “rights of Mother Earth ” .. I’ve been given power of attorney for “Mother Earth”, send remittance ASAP.

  7. DT says:

    IMO, nothing disgraces climate scientists more than their refusal to stand up to the whole anti-west, mother earth bilge. Scientifically, it makes no difference whether a unit of CO2 comes from the US or India. Therefore, plans that attack the West only are unscientific.

    And why does only the west get blamed if third world resources are used? If Nigeria sells a gallon of oil to the US for profit, and the US burns that oil for profit, the resulting CO2 should be the joint responsibility of both countries.

  8. Richwooder says:

    If the rest of the world keeps going the way of Europe there won’t be any money to support these clowns.

  9. Geoff Brown says:

    Considering the fact that climate change is beyond human influence in any known way, of course this is all an exercise in something else. Yes, I’m ready to believe that many of the participants want to use the UN to govern the world. Most people who would agree to be Durban delegates are the type to want this outcome and the type to believe in the claptrap that they are using to advance it.
    I don’t want the US out of the UN. The UN has performed one of its most important jobs: the last time we saw carnage like WWII was, well, WWII. The UN gave birth to Israel and gave freedom to South Korea (it took a while). The UN gave cover, at least, to our first round of the Gulf War to liberate Kuwait.
    The UN also has a lot of nonsense going on but at least the member states are muttering and pretending about freedom and equality and fair play and stuff. If they keep muttering, some of them will actually get there.
    As always, though, the efforts that are supposedly to help “developing” countries will in fact strangle them. Again. The problems in the world’s poorest countries are rooted in bad governance. All the aid the West might send them will only be stolen, with a pittance allowed through to show how much more is needed. I understand the frustration the UN causes many people. I still think we belong in it.

  10. TimothyJ says:

    Of course, we all know how well the Oil for Food program that the UN ran went. There was so much theft that it belies the imagination. So, let’s let the UN run another uncontrolled and unaudited program–works for me. How about: “Get the UN out of the US and the US out of the UN. Bunch of petty little dictators–and, yes, Soetoro, I’m talking to you.

  11. David says:

    Reminds me of that novel some lefty wrote fantasizing about killing Dubya. All of these clods know they have zero chance of getting this stuff adopted by the industrialized world. But they’re really enjoying sketching out their fantasy land in a nice resort paid for with other people’s money. Beats working.

  12. I have only one question:

    What will Barak Obama do as a result of this?

  13. AF_Vet says:

    Let’s see if I can succinctly articulate my feelings upon reading this latest product from the UN:

    –>barf!!!<–

  14. Buck O'Fama says:

    They admitted it once before and now they are putting it in writing: this whole “climate change” kabuki is just a con game to extort money from the West.

  15. jjs says:

    I want to get a job at the UN. At my current job if I come up with ideas that make absolutely no sense and would destroy the very foundation of the company, I would get fired. At the UN people who are coming up with stuff are considered Progressive thinkers and the saviors of Gia. They never have to prove their ideas work just keep spewing the crap out, the more crap they spew the more elite they become.

  16. jjs says:

    Geoff Brown – we need a United Democracies not the UN. The UN enables bad government which in turns keeps billions in poverty. It is no coincidence that the government that are doing the best right now in the 3 rd world have the least to do with the UN. The UN stands against everything that works to improve the human condition. Capitalism, free people and free markets are despised by the heads of the countries at the UN. That is why most countries hate the US at the UN, we are the anti-UN along with Israel and Britain, at least until obama came to town. We gain nothing by being in the UN. UN is not preventing world war III….Israel and the US (after Obama is gone) and Britain will be the only nations that will be able to do that. Iran getting the bomb and having power in the middle east is becasue of the UN.

  17. Bart says:

    I think the good news is that they know they’re behind in the last seconds of the 4th quarter, and this is their Hail Mary pass – no more point in subtlety, just throw it all up in the air and hope someone catches it.

  18. Ravenscar. says:

    Bart,

    A hail Mary pass indeed and thrown out of bounds too.

    Mr. Surber, thank you for an excellent article, my fervent hope is, some of our dullwitted politicians in Britain will read this marvellous piece, read, mark and digest it – if they are so capable and then muse at length on the content and conclusions.

  19. gobsmacker says:

    “The UN has performed one of its most important jobs: the last time we saw carnage like WWII was, well, WWII.”

    I do not see why you give the UN such credit. The carnage and destruction of WWII left the world with one major superpower, the US, which for more than a half century has had few adversaries willing to challenge it militarily. Efforts by the Soviets to counterbalance the US hegemony (Berlin and Eastern Europe, Cuba, etc.) were feeble at best, if for no other reason than the “mighty” Soviet military machine turned out to be a hollow shell. Discounting the conflicts in Korea and Viet Nam, the relative peace following WW II is a Pax Americana, with no thanks to the UN.

  20. Johnny Quest says:

    UN=Useless Nitwits.

  21. [...] Climate Changers Game Plan Revealed. Surprise: world domination! Worth considering when you read the ClimateGate 2.0 emails. [...]

  22. AF_Vet says:

    “The UN has performed one of its most important jobs: the last time we saw carnage like WWII was, well, WWII.”

    Bah!!

    We have enjoyed a peace free of WWII carnage in spite of, not because of the UN.

    The Peace is enjoyed because of American military strength.

    End. Of. Story.

  23. AF_Vet says:

    I should have added:

    The key component that keeps the worlwide outbreak of war at bay is “Deterrence.”

    We have it.

    The UN does not. They posses NO deterrent, they have no teeth aside from American military migh that backs it.

    As evinced by the liberation of Iraq and toppling of Hussein, the UN’s resolutions only mean something when WE back them up with force.

  24. Tim McCoy says:

    AF vet thank you. You are correct in every way. Years ago I had an encounter
    with a UN type who was a Kraut, by the way, who wanted me to fly him over the
    Hanford area of Washington state. This was after the major Bomb producing was over,only N reactor was doing any thing (making plutonium). His Mission: “Ve will fly za perimeter of za facility to monitor the activity of at the various zites!!”
    I said “Just who the hell are YOU Mr. Observer?” I called Hanford security.
    The head honcho said:” Oh, he’s just making a nuisance of himself as he’s been
    flying around Europe and Japan thinking he might justify his job.” he’s really no threat we took his camera the other day, might tell him we are sorry ’bout the X-Ray didn’t know it was loaded…” I said. “Ok we will go flying.” I had a low level clearance, and wavier meaning I could skim the sagebrush if I wanted.
    My rusty, trusty cessna 172 Putt-putt was well known out there, and I alerted security. He got a good look UP at some of the facilities and bridges, rocks, trees
    Eagle nests, he was gibbering in several languages when we landed…
    Neve had any trouble again..

    Nobel-Winning IPCC Chair Rajendra Pachauri Urges Obama to “Listen to Science” on Global Warming

    Pachauri continued, “Actually, to be honest, nobody over here [at COP 17] is paying any attention to science.”

  26. gobsmacker says:

    “The Peace is enjoyed because of American military strength.”

    In other words, you agree with what I wrote in my comment 2 hours earlier.

  27. Brian G. says:

    Mojo’s comment reminds me of what President Jackson once said: “Justice Marshall has made his decision. Now let him enforce it.”

    I told my wife years ago I knew this was all a scam from the beginning when every so-called “solution” including reappropriating lots of money from the U.S. to the U.N. The funny thing is that the third world does most of the polluting of the planet these days. And China and India, which is for the most part are both a third world country, pollutes the world like no o’neil business, yet no one says a word about them.

  28. CAPT Mike says:

    IMHO, we should halt our all or contributions to the UN, except for the General Assembly (a useful neutral ground place for diplomats to talk in peace) and the Security Council.

  29. AF_Vet says:

    Gobsmacker: Yes gob, I was adding on my 1.5 cents for emphasis.

    ;)

  30. Theo6 says:

    What amazes me with the UN is…what are the odds of getting together this many nitwits from all over the planet and putting them all in one room.
    It is astronomical. ;-]

  31. What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this. You just say so many things that arrive from nowhere that Im fairly certain Id have a fair shot. Your blog is fantastic visually, I mean people wont be bored. But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed together with your generic understanding of this topic.

  32. Mikey NTH says:

    This should have the same success as the Kellogg-Briand Pact.

  33. Don says:

    It’s all about the Benjamins. We have them, they want them. And total control over everything in the future. We need to get out of the U.N. and send them to somewhere as far away as possible. Pull our troops out of NATO and let the Europeans have a taste of getting along on their own. No Euro bailout, either. Simple consolidation and repatriation of our financial and miltary sectors abroad will save us a lot of money and let the world see what it’s like without the U.S. to lean on.

  34. Geoff Brown says:

    I’ll stand by my position that the UN has helped prevent wars uglier than the ones that have broken out. US military strength has been a huge factor in that, but would we have intervened if Communist China and the Soviet Union had gone to serious war? I doubt it.
    The UN has many problems and is misused too much. Its humanitarian ops are often a mask for maintaining dictators. But even making the King of Saudi Arabia and the Current Dictator for Life Until the Next Dictator of Haiti mouth the words of peace and prosperity is a form of progress. “Long ways to go yet.”

  35. Bill Butler says:

    Once again, Monckton’s paranoia that the “Commies/Wamists are out to get us” is showing. At this point, only the conspiracy nutcases believe him.

    If what you say is to be taken seriously, then your conclusions have to include real world evidence that is presented by credible sources. For starters, try this photographic time lapse video compiled by the U. S. Geological Survey.

    Video: “Glacier Erasure”
    http://wa.water.usgs.gov/projects/glacier/video.html

    (Here’s a hint. Global Warming Deniers ignore real evidence because it’s part of “The Conspiracy”.)

  36. Sam L. says:

    Tim (The Real) McCoy–YOU DA MAN!!!! Great story.

  37. gjsmith says:

    Geoff Brown, I guess the Chinese weren’t involved in North Korea or North Vietnam, right?

    The UN is corrupt and a means to allow dictatorships a voice as equals to the democracies of the world. The “Human Rights Council” had “Lybia” as a member. It also had those paragons of virtue China, Cuba, Russia, and Saudi Arabia.

    And who do they routinely condemn? The Israel and the USA. They’ve never stopped a war and exist for self aggrandizement.

    You sound like the Jews who thought they could discount Hitler’s rhetoric and work with him. As they ruefully noted afterwards, the next time your enemy says he wants to kill you, believe him. These are the words in the document, Bill, not the Viscount’s.

    As for glacial retreat… meh. Glaciers have been retreating since the last ice age, and many are advancing. But, if the minor uptick in global temperatures is to some extent responsible for the ones melting, so what? Hardly anyone denies global temperatures have slightly increased over the last 30-40 years. The question is why? And, why did they stop about 10 years ago? And, where are they headed now? CO2 increase is a convenient narrative explanation, but that storyline is becoming increasingly frayed, and was pretty threadbare to begin with.
