The United Nations is meeting in Qatar to negotiate a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world,” explained Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change at a Monday press conference.
“What is occurring here, not just in Doha, but in the whole climate change process is the complete transformation of the economic structure of the world. It should happen much quicker, but it cannot happen overnight,” she added.
Figueres concluded, “This Conference of the Parties will produce a second commitment period to the Kyoto Protocol, the only legally binding agreement. It will have the necessary amendments to go into a second commitment period as of January 1, 2013.... We are also moving toward a universal legally based agreement by 2015 to go into effect in 2020.”
The U.S. delegation leader in Doha, Todd Stern, did not balk at the UN’s blatant plan to fundamentally transform the global economy, rather he crowed about the 16.5% reduction in
greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. over the past four years under President Obama. It is to appease the UN that Obama has placed excessive regulations on automobile emissions, power plants and appliances, as they destroy the American economy.
This economically destructive and sovereignty destroying global agenda has been building since the UN’s 1992 Earth Summit when President George H.W. Bush signed the climate change treaty in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
We can and must DEFEAT this UN agenda. As negotiations continue at an ever faster pace over the next four years under Obama for a new universally applied legally binding greenhouse gas emissions limiting treaty to produce a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world,” we must also understand that it will have no affect on the climate. Its purpose is to destroy the U.S. economy.
The U.S. Senate MUST pass a resolution opposing the unilateral climate change commitments made by Obama. Then in 2016, Americans MUST elect a president who has the courage to drive a stake through the heart of this “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.”
