So, China is the world’s largest polluting country. More than likely, the U.S. and other developed countries have precipitated this by moving manufacturing overseas to reduce their cost of doing business. The policies of the U.S. Federal government have placed such a financial burden on the U.S. manufacturing sector that it remains difficult to operate profitably.  Even though China would have remained a super-third-world nation and employment in the U.S. would have suffered much less, the benefit of this manufacturing relocation, in the eyes of the Chinese government, is non-existent and they say we have caused them to become the largest polluting country in the world. What the heck did the Chinese expect when they opened up their doors to the manufacturing world in an attempt to lift their country from their third world status? They had to of known the implications of their decisions in this regard, yet they expect to remain fiscally unaccountable for remedying the problem they helped create.

So this week at the Copenhagen conference, China and other third-world (and developing) countries are declaring a boycott until developed nations, like the U.S. and Britain, pay for the proposed wealth distribution outlined in the IPCC mandate. An AP story today, gives some insight into what these developed countries expect from this agreement.

China, India and other developing nations boycotted U.N. climate talks Monday, bringing negotiations to a halt with their demand that rich countries discuss much deeper cuts in their greenhouse gas emissions.

The move disrupted the 192-nation conference and forced the cancellation of formal working groups, delaying the frantic work of negotiators trying to resolve technical issues before the arrival of more than 110 world leaders later this week.

The boycott was largely seen as a ploy to shift the agenda to the responsibilities of the industrial countries and make emissions reductions the first item for discussion.

While this is certainly mere posturing on the part of China and India, it stills shows the rift that lies between modernized and developing nations. These countries’ governments are not willing to commit themselves financially to a problem that they take no responsibility for. However, the bottom-line is –  they want to pollute while we pay for it. Confirmation of this comes from a quote from a participant at Copenhagen

Gustavo Silva-Chavez, a climate change specialist with the Environmental Defense Fund. “They want to make sure that developed countries are not left off the hook.”

Apparently, in an attempt to circumvent this dissent among developing nations, the White House announced an international effort to help these developing nations create greenhouse gas-free energy.

the White House announced a new program drawing funds from international partners to spend $350 million over five years to give developing nations clean energy technology to curb greenhouse gas emissions

The program will distribute solar power alternatives for homes, including sun-powered lanterns, supply cleaner equipment and appliances and work to develop renewable energy systems in the world’s poorer nations.

So the entire agenda of the developing countries is same as the overall goals of the unelected and unaccountable world government body, the U.N. Whether it’s wealth transference from country to country or individual to individual, it’s still socialism. So, if the socialists’ ploy in your own government is not well received by its citizens, it will get its “Big Brother”, the U.N,. to furthers its goals.

So, whether it’s coming from communist China or the Marxist-lite Obama administration, their end goals are the same:

Provide social and economic justice to those who have suffered from capitalism and wealth distribution to those who demonize capitalism.

A Call to Action
The Time is Now
By

Most polls show that the majority of Americans do not want the healthcare insurance reform that was recently passed by the House and is currently being debated on the floor of the Senate.  Most independent studies show that current legislation will not only do little to lower premiums but will most likely raise the cost of healthcare insurance.  Most experts on both sides of the issue point to an increase in the national debt to pay for what is little more than a grab for power and a reduction in personal freedom.   None of these facts matter to the Democrats in Congress.  They continue to press forward and have simply tuned out the American people!

What can we do?  Write letters to the senators who are debating now, in hopes that they will actually listen? No! They are not going to listen.  They have no respect for the American people.

So what do we do?  We launch a grass roots effort across the nation and we do it now.  I urge everyone to call, write or e-mail their local newspaper, radio station, television station and network affiliate.  If our voices combine and grow louder and louder, these news outlets will be forced to report the sound of a nation screaming, “We don’t want this and we will not be quiet while our freedom is taken by elected officials who are betraying their oath to support and defend the constitution!”

We need to begin immediately and act relentlessly.  Call, write, e-mail and pressure all of your nearest news outlets and tell them that you will not stand for this grab of our freedom!

It all about the money.  This unelected world government organization wants your tax dollars plain and simple. You do not have any say in it. Here is the most substantive U.N. quote from the AP story:

“Time is up,” Yvo de Boer said. “Over the next two weeks governments have to deliver.”

Finance — billions of dollars immediately and hundreds of billions of dollars annually within a decade — was emerging as the key to unblocking an agreement that would bind the global community to a sweeping plan to combat climate change.

Call and your elected official an tell them we cannot afford this U.N. tax and to vote against repressive taxes that will be needed to pay for this world government agenda.

You put the printing presses into overdrive to fund the government spending and to hand out cheap money to your Masters on wall street which they used to rake in record profits while ordinary Americans and small businesses can’t even get loans for their everyday needs…you are the definition of a moral hazard!

Today, in an AP story, we see the Progressives are concerned over public doubts about man’s detrimental effects on climate change and doubts about being taxed by a world government organization that is held accountable by no one.  Well, the AP, a proud proponent of perpetual propaganda commits to their cause by ratcheting up the rhetoric with their, “we’re doomed, it’s too late, we’ll never make it” BS.

This piece is to merely make a point. When progressives get fearful of losing their corrupt-laden propaganda wars, they put the fear generating machine into double-production mode. Examples please:

With the world losing the battle against global warming so far

ultimately moving people, plants and animals out of harm’s way

Society needs to be changing as much as wildlife is changing

climate change is happening rapidly

Adaptation will be particularly challenging because the rate of change is escalating

Cities, states and countries are scrambling to adapt

The U.N. climate chief, Yvo de Boer, said $10 billion to $12 billion a year is needed from developed countries through 2012 to “kick-start” things. Then it will get even more expensive.

failing to adapt would be even more expensive

a pretty strong moral case for us giving them assistance for the impacts that we’ve largely caused.

the world will have to create a triage system to figure out which living things can be saved, which can’t and are effectively goners

It’s a brutal way to go about things

some coastal cities will not be able to survive rising seas no matter what protections are put in place

Now for a moment, take all the quotes from above and read them together. it reads like the thousands upon thousands of boogie man climate change scare stories they’ve circulated in the last decade. And the newspaper industry is wondering why it’s in intensive care. It’s not the economy. People are tired of paying for news that’s controlled by a few (progressive or neo-conservative) that promote their own special interests.

Don’t listen to this mixed bag of neo-Liberals, neo-Marxists, Trotskyites, Democratic Socialists, and neo-Conservatives that have been working on transforming America since they fled Russia in the early 1900’s. These are the ilk that the White House is full of.

Wake up and Cut Off The TV.

Australia’s Senate voted against the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) as a step toward rejecting U.N. climate change legislation. They are obviously concerned about the implications of complying with the U.N. mandates when its citizens are split on the issue. There’s a huge concern over the cost of such a plan that will tax Australians to fund a cap and trade scheme. However, Australia’s government will seek to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions through a Land Management proposal that will not involve cap and trade.

Well, the Labor Party (liberals) seems to believe that insanity is not defined as “doing the same thing over and over again hoping for a different result”. They are gonna keep throwing this thing against the wall until it sticks or falls apart. Here’s how they put it:

Despite the Senate’s rejection of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme establishing a double-dissolution trigger, Julia Gillard said the government would give the Coalition “one more chance” to change its mind. The Acting Prime Minister said Labor would introduce a new CPRS bill, including amendments agreed to by the Coalition under ousted leader Malcolm Turnbull, to parliament in February in the hope that “calmer heads” within the Coalition would shift their positions.

The Senate’s opposition leader made a great point:

Mr Abbott greeted yesterday’s Senate vote by declaring it had saved Australia from “a great big, new tax” by rejecting the CPRS…he said the Opposition remained committed to an unconditional target of reducing emissions by 5 per cent by 2020

Yesterday, Abbott ousted Malcolm Turnbull and scrapped pro-CPRS policy. However, just like the progressives in the U.S. Federal Government, Labor will not give up as stated by a Labor Party member:

Labor would reintroduce the bill when parliament returned in February, complete with the amendments agreed to by Mr Turnbull before he was dumped by his colleagues.”We are doing this to give the Liberal Party one chance to work through and deal with this legislation in the national interest…”

Well, the legislation will be brought up and voted on in 2010, but the Opposition said it will defeat it. Of course, the Labor Party states they’ll keep bringing it up for a vote until it passes (or falls apart) just to prove they are insane, as aforementioned. Maybe this will affect the U.S.’s position on the U.N. treaty. However, I would vote that insanity prevails.
