The UN’s so-called plan to fight climate change is a socialist, money-sucking scheme

TORONTO – The latest United Nations effort in Lima to draft a new global treaty on climate change proves Prime Minister Stephen Harper was right when he described its efforts as “a socialist scheme to suck money out of wealth-producing nations.”

Harper was pilloried by Canada’s opposition parties after his statement, contained in a 2002 fundraising letter for the now-defunct Canadian Alliance, was revealed in 2007, shortly after he won the 2006 federal election.

But Harper was right. Indeed he was vindicated in 2011, when a senior UN climate official, German economist Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Working Group III, explained:

“Basically, it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization. The climate summit (that one was in Cancun) is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War … one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”

    I would imagine the Swiss banks had booths at the meeting, so third world leaders can update the bank accounts.

    In order for the United Nations to truly have power by forming a one world government they will need a form of taxation imposed on the nations. This redistribution of wealth scheme through cap & trade or carbon tax in the name of fighting ‘Climate Change’ is the means and the way they will achieve this. It will mean an end to freedom, democracy and free market capitalism since most nations on Earth are not free democratic nations that either embraces socialism or communism.
