Skip to comments.Gore: U.S. Climate Bill Will Help Bring About 'Global Governance'
Posted on 07/10/2009 2:27:32 PM PDT by Ooh-Ah
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.
“Cat out of the Bag?”
We already knew, Al you big Dummy.
Thats' what your scam was all about anyway wasn't it Al? You pig.
I recall 20 years ago when he got his start in professional politics burning/banning record albums. His committee told people like John Denver that they had nothing to worry about because they LIKED his music.
This is just the Chicago ward-heeling tax-money-for-votes-and-power scheme on a global scale. Climate change is just the excuse.
It’s pretty obvious that in another age, Al Gore would have been extremely comfortable as an officer in the SS.
Gore’s IQ must be minus 100.
In Pamplona, bulls gore.
In Oxford, Gore bull$#!ts.
Gee who did “Nazi” this coming?
Just today I’ve received “Heaven and Earth - global warming - the missing science” by Ian Plimer. It looks like good material, but it’ll take time to digest.
The leader of the AGW cult, namely High Priest Algore, needs to spend a little time reading this book. But it doesn’t matter; global governance was the objective the whole time.
Hey Algore, get a clue. We’re more looking at global cooling than global warming, but the facts don’t matter to you, do they?
Gore needs to go where there really is Global Warming......Hell.
I wish Gore had said this during the 2000 campaign.
The American people are getting what they voted for.
Hey Al, Do a Google search for traitors: Benito Mussolini.
Globalists on the march.
Burn in hell Albert.
May look at it when I get home.
Boy Gore sure is worried about global warming.
Has he downsized his carbons lately.
The only people who will be restricted will be us.
I doubt any other country will be required to do the same.
You've been had fool
I'm thinking more of the SA or maybe the Gestapo. The SS for all of their sins were an elite military unit.
"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."Definitely (to FlingWingFlyer, reply for another topic).
Somebody’s eventually going to poo-poo the observation with the Godwin’s Law quote, but sometimes... the hobnailed leather jackboot just fits.
**** you al.
Don’t see much of Tipper any more. Wonder why that is.
I don’t think the Antichrist will be one person; now I believe it will be all these “global governance” types put together.
I mean... is big al one classy American patriot or WHAT.
My long gone father for most of his life actually believed certain folks, such as Allie Baby here, had no soul. In his later years he told me he had been wrong. They did have a soul... it was a conscience they were lacking.
RIGHT AGAIN PAP!
We don’t want any stinking global government Goron!
Ohh WOE is me... whys everybody pickin on me???
Yeah I threw it together one day after someone used the “Chains you can believe in” line.
There are 3, a dragon, a beast and a false prophet. There is spirit of the Anti-Christ, which is a general description, but read carefully
Revelation 16 here are a couple of vs:
‘13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs;
14 for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.
15(”Behold, I am coming like a thief Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.”)
16And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.’
A word study, especially phrases, is always enlightening. Enjoy.
We will get what we deserve.
Anyone who advocates for ‘global governance’ is an Enemy of the Republic.
They’re actually saying it now.
I pity the poor person who gets all my money.
I wish Gore would move to some third world hell hole, live in a mud hut, grow his own food, and never bother us again.
It would greatly decrease his considerable carbon butt print.
