How many of us missed this outright indictment of capitalism and freedom released two years ago:
“At a news conference last week [02//15], Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.”
Like Obamacare, thinking citizens initially realized that the climate change/global warming meme had a hidden agenda. Neither was about aiding the citizenry nor saving the planet. Clearly, the science behind climate change was most definitely not settled. Nevertheless, the barkers of this narrative continued hawking their ideology like the traveling medicine men of the old west who sold their “cures” out of the backs of their wagons.
The medicine men were smart enough to get out of town before they were exposed as phonies. Unfortunately, the present day hucksters have the backing of the elitists/globalists who are all too willing and able to force this “cure” for planet Earth down the collective throats of its inhabitants. Facts, alternative viewpoints, and historical data on the earth’s ever changing climate were ignored, and those who referred to them were excoriated.
There are a plethora of links regarding the DOJ actually considering prosecuting Climate Change deniers! Here is but one of many. The Ministry Of Truth strikes again. The Climate Change issue began as an iron fist in a velvet glove. Now, the velvet glove is off.
Can we turn the ship of totalitarianism around? Is it too late? Will the newly elected administration bring some reality testing to this issue?
U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.
Figueres is perhaps the perfect person for the job of transforming “the economic development model” because she’s really never seen it work. “If you look at Ms. Figueres’ Wikipedia page,” notes Cato economist Dan Mitchell: Making the world look at their right hand while they choke developed economies with their left.
