Gore: U.S. Climate Bill Will Help Bring About 'Global Governance'

Gore: U.S. Climate Bill Will Help Bring About 'Global Governance' Climate Depot Exclusive Friday, July 10, 2009 - By Marc Morano – Climate Depot

Former Vice President Al Gore declared that the Congressional climate bill will help bring about “global governance.”

“I bring you good news from the U.S., “Gore said on July 7, 2009 in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by UK Times.

“Just two weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed the Waxman-Markey climate bill,” Gore said, noting it was “very much a step in the right direction.” Gore touted the climate bill, claiming it “will dramatically increase the prospects for success” in combating what he sees as the “crisis” of man-made global warming.

“But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements.” (Editor's Note: Gore makes the “global governance” comment at the 1min. 10 sec. mark in this UK Times video.)

Gore's call for “global governance” echoes former French President Jacques Chirac's call in 2000.

On November 20, 2000, then French President Chirac said during a speech at The Hague that the UN's Kyoto Protocol represented "the first component of an authentic global governance."

“For the first time, humanity is instituting a genuine instrument of global governance,” Chirac explained. “From the very earliest age, we should make environmental awareness a major theme of education and a major theme of political debate, until respect for the environment comes to be as fundamental as safeguarding our rights and freedoms. By acting together, by building this unprecedented instrument, the first component of an authentic global governance, we are working for dialogue and peace,” Chirac added.

Former EU Environment Minister Margot Wallstrom said, "Kyoto is about the economy, about leveling the playing field for big businesses worldwide." Canadian Prime Minster Stephen Harper once dismissed UN's Kyoto Protocol as a “socialist scheme.”

'Global Carbon Tax' Urged at UN Meeting

In addition, calls for a global carbon tax have been urged at recent UN global warming conferences. In December 2007, the UN climate conference in Bali, urged the adoption of a global carbon tax that would represent “a global burden sharing system, fair, with solidarity, and legally binding to all nations.”

“Finally someone will pay for these [climate related] costs,” Othmar Schwank, a global tax advocate, said at the 2007 UN conference after a panel titled “A Global CO2 Tax.”

Schwank noted that wealthy nations like the U.S. would bear the biggest burden based on the “polluters pay principle.” The U.S. and other wealthy nations need to “contribute significantly more to this global fund,” Schwank explained. He also added, “It is very essential to tax coal.”

The 2007 UN conference was presented with a report from the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment titled “Global Solidarity in Financing Adaptation.” The report stated there was an “urgent need” for a global tax in order for “damages [from climate change] to be kept from growing to truly catastrophic levels, especially in vulnerable countries of the developing world.”

The tens of billions of dollars per year generated by a global tax would “flow into a global Multilateral Adaptation Fund” to help nations cope with global warming, according to the report.

Schwank said a global carbon dioxide tax is an idea long overdue that is urgently needed to establish “a funding scheme which generates the resources required to address the dimension of challenge with regard to climate change costs.”

'Redistribution of wealth'

The environmental group Friends of the Earth advocated the transfer of money from rich to poor nations during the 2007 UN climate conference. "A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources,” said Emma Brindal, a climate justice campaigner coordinator for Friends of the Earth.

Gore: U.S. Climate Bill Will Help Bring About 'Global Governance'

That is what I'm afraid of. I don't want to be ruled by China, Europe or Central America. I'm not even terribly thrilled about being ruled from DC, but at least there are procedures for throwing those bums out.

It all started,(at least in modern terms) back in the 40’s when the UN and others were creating these organizational movements.

They means us harm and they’re in charge currently.

I’m thinking this is the 21st century equivalent of Caligula waging war against the sea. But of course it wasn’t as lucrative for Caligula as it will be for Gore.

Gore shows his hand. Well, at least he’s not hiding it, like most of the others.

THEY HAVE BEEN GETTING INCREASINGLY BRAZEN . . .

WITNESS GINZBURG about abortion being to cull the population of undesirables.

And still EVEN SOME FREEPERS still disbelieve the truth about the NWO.

Incredible.

The Biblically predicted GREAT DELUSION is evident even on FR.

Shocking.

That would be ‘strong delusion’, brother! And we see it sauntering into the American liberal psyche.

0bama’s approval ratings are in the negative. America does not like his policies. But big deal. What will America do when globalization/ global tax is forced upon us? With the czars 0bama can force in anything now.

I see it among formerly sensible aquaintances who are not committed conservatives or loyal Republicans. With so many deluded, it seems to have become easier to let oneself be deluded too--so difficult to stand alone among the huge majority.

I just stop talking when I hear acceptance of Obama. There is no rational way to fight it.

I know, it’s easy to become speechless...On the other hand it’s refreshing to see their heads explode when I tell them, we have nothing less than a Marxist government ruling us now.

...I agree. The attack on USA sovereignty started many years ago. I'm for a round planet, save the earth, feed those that are starving...

...Those that are in charge would rather keep us hungry and in fear to benefit themselves. I won't have any part in their plan to rule the world, I'm for any action to put a stop to this...

I know what you mean. IMO, one of the ideals of conservatism is to be a good steward for this planet. (doesn't matter the ideology if you're dead or dying)

ALGORE = Charlatan

...A conservative conservationist is a steward of the planet. OWLGORE is a POS hooter for big business capitalists that are in bed with big government neo-progressives...

...It's been along time coming, and we should have shut these elites down, long time ago...
