I wrote this about four years ago and just reread it. I think it is more relevant now than before.
This Battle Over Climate Change Is Deeper Than We Think.
We are at the Crossroads.
The recent decision by our President is the right one. There is no doubt that the "environmental movement" has been co-opted by the far left to transfer wealth from the wealthiest nations to those that have chosen to believe that we should pay for our quest for freedom and growth. Sad to say the leadership in some of those wealthy nations has also been corrupted by those that believe that putting the Greatest Nation of all history and the most successful in terms of growth and prosperity should pay. And pay BIG!
We have to look to history, something that has been corrupted too, to see the forces in motion. In every country where Marxism or Communism has been instituted, the people have been told that policies have been put in place "for the Greater Good of The People" but in every case they have failed because the greater good goes to the Elitists and the people suffer on whatever handouts they are given. They are given meaningless jobs, they are told what they have to do, they are stifled by rules and regulations, it is impossible to dream of a better life. The plan has been softened a bit in the last 40 years or so, but it is creeping more insidiously into our everyday lives . . . it has been indoctrinated to our school children quietly and has now reached critical mass in our Universities.
The Green Movement has taken a front and center role in making sure the USA fails and a globalist New World Order can take control of the World. This is NOT a conspiracy theory, it has been voiced by several of the UN IPCC leaders in policy statements in the recent past.
"The former co-chair of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015, Ottmar Edenhofer let slip that, “One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole. We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”"
At a news conference 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.
It really is up to the vast middle of America to squash this and President Trump has put the first nail in the coffin. The Globalists on the coasts and in the Main Stream Media are going to scream and the ones in the EU, that will fail again and again, will call us names and tell us we are going to burn in the Hell of Climate Change, but history will see us through. The Chinese have gotten the message about Capitalism, but used it to further their elitism. They had to change to bring their backward Nation to the modern times. While they are still an elite controlled Communist country, they have adopted some private ownership of business and allowed some of our businesses to live within their system. Apple, WalMart, McDonalds, Exxon, Caterpillar, all made significant inroads in China and have showed them how to fit in. Now most of those companies are pulling out as the Chinese market has somewhat hit the skids. Enough Chinese companies have gotten big enough to buy out the US interests and we will be relegated to leaving our Logos behind under Chinese control. In their system the elite still control the regulations and the people are in the gutter. That is the NWO plan for the US, to use our development and leave us in the dust, to just become another internationally controlled entity.
We are the USA. We are solely responsible for the development of the World such as it is. We rebuilt Europe after the World Wars. We put an end to the Cold War with our strength and technology. We made all the research and technology developments of the 20th Century in medicine, science, business, energy, transportation, and government. If the rest of the world wants to go their way, let them. We can become what we once were when we can get Marxism, Chairman Mao, Stalinism, The UN, and other NWO influences out of our lives. We are at the crossroads.
