Will the Copenhagen Treaty be debated and voted on by the Australian Parliament? – or will it be simply be another one of those international treaties simply signed by the Prime Minister. Another one of our “international obligations”!
It isn’t easy being green
We got it wrong.
Here we all were worrying about whether the science of “human induced climate change” was based on sound scientific evidence, rather than crude supposition and faulty computer modelling, when all the time the real issue was quietly ticking away and creeping ever slowly towards a real global catastrophe.
While our attention was diverted by arguments about why the planet’s oceans and land temperatures had failed to get hotter during the past 10 years, or why the build-up of ice in Antarctica was actually increasing. Or what the actual consequences might be if we, the human race, with unbelievable arrogance, thought we could alter the natural fluctuating nature of Earth’s climate — the real game was being conducted behind closed doors or at least beyond the view of we mere mortals. The world is facing a catastrophe alright!
And that catastrophe isn’t the threat of “global warming” but the threat of “global government”.
As details of the Draft Treaty of Copenhagen slowly become clearer, what is revealed is that the underlying agenda and overarching goal is not to control the climate, so much, but to control the governance of the world. The climate is just part of a much wider agenda. It’s called Controlfreakonomics!
The generally accepted notion is that Australia’s attendance at Copenhagen will just be to vote on a global emissions limit and our own national emissions limit. This is what the public has been led to believe that COP15 (Copenhagen Treaty) is all about. But it isn’t.
The Copenhagen Treaty is about the formation of a new “world government” that will control all aspects the planet’s future — as decided by an unelected, unrepresented group of UN appointed apparatchiks. At least that is the only conclusion that can be drawn from a reading of it.
The Draft Treaty of Copenhagen is truly Orwellian.
a) The government [read: World Climate Government] will be ruled by the COP with the support of a new subsidiary body on adoption, and of an Executive Board responsible for the management of the new funds and the related facilitative processes and bodies.
This “government” will engage all countries, party to the Copenhagen Treaty, into commercially binding, legally enforceable, contracts regarding their “emissions targets” with cash deposits required to back up their “targets” if they look like being non-compliant. Countries that fail to meet their targets will forfeit their deposits.
This new “government” will be demanding cash transfers of massive amounts of money from “developed” countries to undeveloped/under-developed countries as part of the Copenhagen Treaty. This week, in advance of the big carbon-fest at Copenhagen, the European Union decided on their first yearly instalment of E180 billion, as an opening bid. The US, Japan, Australia, and Canada will be expected to be putting up their yearly contribution amounts.
Interestingly, countries like Singapore and rich oil-producing countries are expected to be beneficiaries. The “world Government” will be establishing special funds to compensate wealthy Middle Eastern oil states when their oil runs out. Now there’s a CO2 twist.
An interesting Clause on Page 11 of the Draft Treaty states “ … global crises, such as financial crises, should not constitute an obstacle to the provision of financial and technical assistance to developing countries in accordance with the Convention.” So even if developed countries suffer a financial meltdown, a catastrophic event like a pandemic, an earthquake or asteroid strike — the cash must still roll out.
Developed countries like Australia are going to be handcuffed to a Treaty from which there is no escape.
Lord Monckton, in a recent address to business leaders in St. Paul, Minnesota said:
I have read that treaty and what it says is this: that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to Third World countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. And we’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement. How many of you think the word “election,” or “democracy” or “vote,” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once.
While the Rudd government and the opposition have been arguing the toss about an ETS, the issue of most concern is the wording of the Copenhagen Treaty. The limited (almost non-existent) media coverage about the fine print of COP15 means that the citizens of Australia have no idea as to the dangers involved should Australia sign COP15 as it stands.
And the big question is – Will the Copenhagen Treaty be debated and voted on by the Australian Parliament? – or will it be another one of those international treaties simply signed by the Prime Minister. Another one of our “international obligations”!
