All this "climate change" talk is not about "Saving the planet". Please read this. And why is Obama pushing cap and trade? A few answers here and here. Do we really want to be regulated by corporations, bankers and more government? Cap and trade ain't working so well in Europe, apparently. And Australia's planning on implementing carbon policing...WTF?! And even in the shadow of the climate science scandal, Gordon Brown is calling for a new group to police global environmental issues. Oh, and have you thought that the Green movement sounds awfully like a religion? Think that's by accident? Nope. Read this and this (Click "objectives" & see participant list. There's Al Gore. What a surprise!) to see how environment is being used a religion to manipulate people in order to "transform" the world. How about just giving people the facts?
Climate change: It's a great tool to manipulate people.
Excerpts from this link:
Simon Linnett, Executive Vice-Chairman of Rothschild, has called for a new international body, the World Environment Agency, to regulate carbon trading.
In a recently published paper, Trading Emissions, for the Social Market Foundation, Mr Linnett argues that the International problem of climate change demands an international solution.
Unless governments cede some of their sovereignty to a new world body, he says, a global carbon trading scheme cannot be enforced and regulated.
And from this link:
That, perhaps, it might be regarded to as having wider benefits than
merely “saving the planet” – perhaps it might be the basis for a new
world order, one that is not based on trade and/or conflict resolution
– and, even
• Perhaps one can see a way to achieve this goal, through leadership,
vision and some marginal and manageable renunciation of national
sovereignty, how the world might just get there.
While Al Gore moans and groans in his Tennessee drawl about how much he cares for the environment, his carbon swap scheme is killing old growth forests. Please read Bernd Heinrich's op-ed (excerpt below):
More than anything, carbon offsets will allow rich countries to burn ever more fossil fuels under the “clean development mechanism” of the Kyoto Protocol, the system that sets the values, in terms of tons of carbon equivalent, of emission-reduction efforts.
In fact, most of the problems with the system can be traced back to the Kyoto Protocol, which was adopted in 1997. After much political wrangling, the Kyoto delegates decided that there would be no carbon-reduction credits for saving existing forests. Since planting new trees does get one credits, Kyoto actually created a rationale for clear-cutting old growth.This is horrifying. The world’s forests are a key to our survival, and that of millions of other species.
"Climate Change" hysteria isn't about saving the planet; that's just the cloak of goodness the greedy and powerful hide behind. They get the extra bonus of manipulating people under the guise of Green goodness; if you question their good environmental cause you must be a moron or a flat-earther. It's really a genius scam.
If the fear profiteers truly care about the environment they wouldn't be jetting all over the world in private planes, and they definitely wouldn't be promoting Cap and Trade. While they're focusing on CO2, the Amazon rain forest is disappearing. It's a farce! This scheme is just as nonsensical as mortgage derivatives which helped bring down our economy, but even worse - considering the damage to the planet that would happen when we ignore real environmental and humanitarian issues.
It's a good thing to question these things. When you're told "The debate is closed!" and "The science is solid," look closer.
