Weve all been had.
The bottom has long since fallen out of the key group that master-minded the Kyoto Protocol credit scheme, but nobody seemed to have joined the dots.
It all began with the flight of Canadian Maurice Strongs Earth Council from Costa Rica as noted by the National Posts Peter Foster in May, 2004.
With no fanfare, the Earth Council landed in CH2M Hills Consumer Road Toronto office towers.
The Costa Rican government has been pursuing the Earth Council for payment of U.S.$1.65 million, for the wrongful sale of a tract of land it imprudently donated to the Council. The land was donated to the Council by the Costa Rican government with the agreement that, if the Council moved, it would have to return the land.
It was in 1996 when Costa Rica granted the Council the land in question. All Hell broke loose when it was discovered that the Earth Council sold the land that was not theirs to sell in the first place.
"The government cried foul, and the Earth Council upped and departed the country, citing the drain of the legal fight." (Peter Foster, National Post).
Not only was the Earth Council forced to bunk up with CH2M Hill, their hasty departure from sunny Costa Rica also seriously impacted the University of Peace where Maurice Strong was a prominent CEO.
At last count, the University of Peace was destined to relocate to Torontos waterfront. Former Liberal MP Dennis Mills made a pre-federal election announcement with what he said was "the permission of Canadas Prime Minister Paul Martin".
About a year after the Earth Council hightailed it from Costa Rica, Strong set up offices just down the hall from those of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, at UN Manhattan headquarters. . . . .

Canada uber-government bumps.
I received an email today with a picture of Paul Martin in an imitation of Nixon's two-handed victory salute. The caption was, "I am too a crook." Bingo.
should be required reading on free republic.
Sorry, I deleted the email already. I've asked the guy who sent it if he could tell me where to find it or at least send it again. (He doesn't keep email stuff for very long either). I'll let you know when he responds.
I recall a National Review article about 10 years ago warning about Maurice Strong. Looks as if they pegged him pretty well back then.
But it is the carbon credits, devised for the Kyoto Accord that could be described as the biggest scam of all time that leads to the Canada Free Press lead, "Weve been had".
The accord may have been engineered in Kyoto, Japan but it was manufactured in sunny Costa Rica.
The blueprint can be found in a May 9, 1997 Earth Council media release, First Global Environment Commodity Goes to Market.
It happened at Braulio Carillo National Park, Costa Rica and was launched by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.
Clinton welcomed Costa Ricas launch of "the worlds first formal program to curb global warming through an international market in greenhouse gas emission reductions".
I wonder how much Billy Jeff Blythe got for the gig?
The article doesn't really explain what is a CTO.
The way I understand it
and please correct me if I am wrong
is that some poor schmuck buys a certificate
from some company
which guarantees that the company
has reduced its greenhouse gasses
whatever they might be.
(The poor schmuck,
would be the Canadian taxpayer or
if the Democrats get back in power
the American taxpayer)
the poor schmuck, himself,
is not required to lower the output
of his bad gasses.
like stocks and bonds
these valuable certificates could be traded
on the market.
Sounds like a sensible scheme to me.
It's tough to overstate the obvious.
Besides, to help the teaming masses of the third-world the atmosphere could use more carbon dioxide so that plants can grow at an accelerated rate to feed them!
bump for later
Thanks for the ping piasa.
