As world leaders are flying into Copenhagen for the anticipated climax of the two-week U.N. climate change conference, things are not going well. The conference is bogged down in disagreements among negotiators for the U.S., the European Union and a bloc of developing nations led by China.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the disagreements involve elemental issues about size of emission reductions, the amount of money rich countries should pay poor countries to help fund a cleanup, and the extent of monitoring that countries should have to accept. In particular, the U.S. and China are in a standoff over the U.S.’s insistence that China commit to a legally binding agreement — a step China has resisted — and the degree to which China’s actions should be open to international review.
Any rejoicing by climate change skeptics is premature and ill-advised. The plain fact is that the world’s heads of state — including Obama and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown — will converge on Copenhagen by this Friday. So the conference must and will produce SOME kind of agreement (treaty). And that treaty will inevitably entail the formation of a WORLD GOVERNMENT. Now, they’re not going to call it “World Government,” but will call it by some insanely dull bureaucratic name — the Conference of the Parties. Whatever it’s called, a pile of feces by whatever name smells just as foul. Say goodbye to American sovereignty!
Why is a world government inevitable if/when Copenhagen produces a climate change treaty? The logic is really quite simple.
Any climate change agreement must be enforceable and administered by some supra-national body. That body will be the world government.
In his speech at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota, on October 15 this year, Lord Christopher Monckton had warned us that the Copenhagen conference will accomplish three goals:
- Create a world government that will
- Enforce treaty agreements and
- Transfer wealth from the developed countries (the West & Japan) to the less developed countries (LDC), in satisfication of “climate debt” and to finance the LDCs’ compliance with the climate change treaty.
I read the draft version of the climate change treaty and can verify that what Monckton said is true.
The draft treaty is called “UNITED NATIONS AD HOC WORKING GROUP ON LONG-TERM COOPERATIVE ACTION UNDER THE CONVENTION.” (You can read it for yourself here in pdf format.) Beginning on page 18 is para. 38 of the draft treaty, which says the following (my words are in red):
38. The scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention will be based on three basic pillars: government; facilitative mechanism; and financial mechanism, and the basic organization of which will include the following:
1. World Government
(a) The government will be ruled by the COP [Conference of the Parties] with the support of a new subsidiary body on adaptation, and of an Executive Board responsible for the management of the new funds and the related facilitative processes and bodies. The current Convention secretariat will operate as such, as appropriate.
2. Wealth Redistribution
b) The Convention’s financial mechanism will include a multilateral climate change fund including five windows: (a) an Adaptation window, (b) a Compensation window, to address loss and damage from climate change impacts [i.e., the “climate debt” Monckton referred to], including insurance, rehabilitation and compensatory components, (c) a Technology window; (d) a Mitigation window; and (e) a REDD window, to support a multi-phases process for positive forest incentives relating to REDD actions.
3. Enforcement Authority
The Convention’s facilitative mechanism will include: (a) work programmes for adaptation and mitigation; (b) a long-term REDD process; (c) a short-term technology action plan; (d) an expert group on adaptation established by the subsidiary body on adaptation, and expert groups on mitigation, technologies and on monitoring, reporting and verification; and (e) an international registry for the monitoring, reporting and verification of compliance of emission reduction commitments, and the transfer of technical and financial resources from developed countries to developing countries. The secretariat will provide technical and administrative support, including a new centre for information exchange [i.e., enforcement].
Not convinced? Here are some more quotes from the draft climate change treaty. On page 39, under the heading “Means of Implementation” are the following:
32. Funds will be under the control of the COP as the supreme authority of the Convention.
33. By 2020 the scale of financial flows to support adaptation in developing countries must be [at least USD 67 billion] [in the range of USD 70140 billion] per year.
On page 60 of the draft climate change treaty is the following:
25. Each Party (except the least developed countries) would be required to: (a) Maintain a national schedule; (b) Meet and/or implement the nationally appropriate mitigation commitments and/or actions registered in its national schedule; (c) Measure and report on the outcomes of these commitments and/or actions.
26. Each Party would be required to register in its national schedule: (a) A national emissions pathway to 2050
To conclude, Copenhagen will produce a climate change treaty. And a climate change treaty will inevitably entail the creation of a world government. It is nothing less than CRIMINAL that noone in the media is reporting on this! Please spread the word! Our national sovereignty and personal liberty are in jeopardy.
