This is from a great article by Phyllis Schlafly wherein she calls for the US to halt all funding for the UN’s “global warming scam”. I’ll excerpt the important parts, and I put them here because this is the part of the story we will never be told by New Zealand’s repugnantly biased mainstream media. There will be glowing reports of what Smith, Groser And Macey have achieved in Cancun, but the real story, that they have signed us up to an outrageously farcical attempt at global Marxism, will be swept under the carpet.
That these three, who present themselves as honest brokers of NZ’s concern with climate change, should go to Cancun and sign every NZer up to this atrocious farce is a disgrace that should see them resign or be fired immediately in any just world. That National are leading us into this costly and totally unwarranted expenditure right now, with the deficits we are facing, is inexcusable. They (National) remain popular because they lie.
If every NZer knew what was really happening in Cancun, what the snivelling Smith and his cronies had signed us up to, Key and his gang of weak kneed lily livered do nothing losers would be out on their ear in a millisecond. That Key allows Smith and Groser to involve NZ in this charade is another pointer to what an utterly ineffectual leader we have. National, Key, Smith, Groser, what a useless pack of clowns, sending this country down the tube for the sake of a pat on the back from a collection of thugs and dictators. Unforgivable. Utterly unforgivable.
This 16th annual conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), called COP 16 (Conference of the Parties 16), attracted some 20,000 delegates from 194 countries. It had little to do with any science about climate change and everything to do with trying to get the United States and other industrialized nations to redistribute their wealth to the poorer nations under the supervision of eager United Nations bureaucrats.
Like previous climate change conferences, COP 16 deliberately pitted the poor countries against the rich countries, encouraging the poor countries to demand what the rich countries have without earning or paying for it. This is the internationalist version of the basic Marxist tactic called the class war.
COP 16 participants decided it’s time to call for a global tax. They want it to be unlimited in scope and unlinked to national treasuries so that tax receipts can flow without the nuisance of having to be approved by the rich countries’ legislatures.
The U.N. Secretary General’s High Level Advisory Group confirmed that the goal is to impose taxes on international shipping, aviation and financial transactions involving stocks, bonds and foreign exchanges, as well as a carbon tax. Those taxes could raise at least $100 billion annually, and the International Maritime Organization is ready to be the assessor-collector.
COP 16 agitators consider all these payments compensatory for damages caused by the rich nations. The World Wildlife Foundation estimates that the amounts needed to protect against climate change will run to $160 billion to $200 billion yearly by 2020.
COP 16’s bag of tricks also includes plans for global governance. The new UNFCCC executive secretary, Christiana Figueres, said that COP 16 “is a litmus test for global governance capacity” and that “Cancun will be successful if governments compromise” by launching “a new era.”
The poor nations at COP 16 presented a document called “Declaration From the South-South Summit on Climate Justice and Finance.” It claimed that climate change is “an economic and social crisis, a political crisis, a food and energy crisis, and an ecological crisis.” This diatribe called for “climate justice, ecological justice, economic justice, gender justice and historical justice.” Its presenters concluded by chanting, “Let’s globalize the struggle!”
