UK seeks climate change fund for world's poor (Global Wealth Redistribution)
UK seeks climate change fund for world's poor ^ | 06/26/09 | David Stringer

"Wealthy nations should establish a fund that could spend $100 billion a year helping the world's poorest countries to tackle climate change, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Friday.

Calling for the fund to be in place by 2020, Brown said that wealthier nations would be able to raise funds through the expansion of international carbon trading market - in which carbon reductions achieved by one company can be sold to another - and existing development aid.

Environment ministers from industrialized nations first discussed proposals for the creation of such a fund at a conference in Denmark last month. Campaigners praised Brown for drawing further attention to the scale of assistance the developing world is likely to need to make reductions to greenhouse gas emissions."

""If we act now, if we act together, if we act with vision and resolve, success at Copenhagen is within reach. But if we falter, the earth itself will be at risk," Brown said.

Leaders hope to use the Copenhagen summit to negotiate a new global climate treaty to succeed the 1997Kyoto treaty, which expires in 2012. That treaty called on 37 countries to cut carbon emissions by a total of 5 percent from 1990 levels by 2012. The U.S. rejected Kyoto, arguing it failed to make demands on rapidly expanding developing countries.

Nations are expected to agree in Copenhagen to make carbon emissions a global commodity, with a universally accepted price."

Outstanding post....

Carbon ‘credits’ for purchase and credit default swap trading like sub-prime mortgages.

Ever-increasing US dollars for the UN corruption (carbon for food)

Oh, and China and India don’t have to play, either.

No matter what you do, how you do it or how much money you throw at it.......there will always be “poor” in all countries. It has been this way since the beginning of time. Not only that, if you throw money at the poor countries, they will just steal it and use it for themselves. Follow the money and you will find the kick backs.

When he was a member of the Senate BO introduced his “Global Poverty Act,” a bill to reduce poverty around the world by imposing a tax of 0.7% of the U.S. gross national product, or $850 billion of American taxpayers money. It “required the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty. Harry Reid courteously brought it up last fall, but he bill went nowhere. Not even the Dems wanted anything to do with it. Now I think the crap-and-tax climate bill is part of an attempt to impose the BO “global poverty” bill by stealth. We are being robbed blind and not being kissed.

EXACTLY! This is an attempted money grab from the masses by the elite. They are disguising it as “caring for the poor.”

I have never watched Dancing with the Stars, I do not eat pizza and I eschew soft drinks. Why are you insulting me?

They’re just “using” the idea of “Climate Change” to pursue other agendas... We’ve gotta put a stop to that...

It’s one thing to gripe and complain about these things and disagree with it, but it’s quite *another* to convince your friends and neighbors and relatives and coworkers...

THEREFORE..., it’s also absolutely necessary for people to know the information in the following documentary. If there were simply *one* video that you could see and/or show people you know... this would be the *one*...


The following is an *excellent* video documentary on the so-called “Global Warming” I would recommend it to all FReepers. It’s a very well-made documentary.

“The Great Global Warming Swindle”

If you want to download it, via a BitTorrent site (using a BitTorrent client), you can get it at the following link.
http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/3635222/The_Great_Global_Warming_Swindle
[this is a high-quality copy, of about a gigabyte in size...]

It’s worth seeing and having for relatives, friends, neighbors and coworkers to see.

Also, see it online here...
http://www.moviesfoundonline.com/great_global_warming_swindle.php
[this one is considerably lower quality, is a flash video and viewable online, of course...]

Buy it here...
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000WLUXZE
[this one would be the very highest quality version, on a DVD disk, of several gigabytes in size...]

Also, in split parts on YouTube...

I was referring to the uninformed public...if you are FReeper, you probably don’t fall into that category.

The trope is that “developed” nations are solely responsible for global warming. How then do Third World countries have to cope with this mythical phenomenon? What impact can global warming have on a country that already has nothing?

Brown, you are a “F”ing IDIOT. You want this, YOU pay for it and I mean YOU personally, not the good people of Great Britain!

Brown is a truly evil, wicked little man. A traitor to the British people.
