We can only hope that world leaders will do nothing more than enjoy a pleasant bicycle ride around the charming streets of Copenhagen come December. For if they actually manage to wring out an agreement based on the current draft text of the Copenhagen climate-change treaty, the world is in for some nasty surprises. Draft text, you say? If you haven't heard about it, that's because none of our otherwise talkative political leaders have bothered to tell us what the drafters have already cobbled together for leaders to consider. And neither have the media.
Enter Lord Christopher Monckton. The former adviser to Margaret Thatcher gave an address at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota, earlier this month that made quite a splash. For the first time, the public heard about the 181 pages, dated Sept. 15, that comprise the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Changea rough draft of what could be signed come December.
So far there have been more than a million hits on the YouTube post of his address. It deserves millions more because Lord Monckton warns that the aim of the Copenhagen draft treaty is to set up a transnational "government" on a scale the world has never before seen.
The "scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention" that starts on page 18 contains the provision for a "government." The aim is to give a new as yet unnamed U.N. body the power to directly intervene in the financial, economic, tax and environmental affairs of all the nations that sign the Copenhagen treaty.

And how will developed countries be slugged to provide for this financial flow to the developing world? The draft text sets out various alternatives, including option seven on page 135, which provides for "a [global] levy of 2 per cent on international financial market [monetary] transactions to Annex I Parties." Annex 1 countries are industrialized countries, which include among others the U.S., Australia, Britain and Canada.
Lord Monckton himself only became aware of the extraordinary powers to be vested in this new world government when a friend found an obscure U.N. Web site and searched through several layers of hyperlinks before discovering a document that isn't even called the draft "treaty." Instead, it's labelled a "Note by the Secretariat."

Americans for Prosperity reported today from Copenhagen that the "Copenhagen Treaty" language has been changed in two critical ways. First, the word "treaty" has been changed to "agreement" so that Obama can sign it without review by the U.S. Senate, and second "worldwide government" has been removed. Nevertheless, the "treaty" creates some 700 new global government offices and entities which will supercede the U.S. Constitution.
The *plans* might of been slightly changed or in some cases, scrubbed.
Probably was a good head-fake to stop people focusing on the primary directives in the treaty.
The UN moved quickly to squash the "rebellion" ... or so they say (if you can believe anything they say).
My blood pressure has gone through the roof. Sent the link to youtube to my email list. Need to get other people’s blood pressure up there with mine.
Things are calmer now in the global warming scheme of things.
Lard ass, the king of the net and global warming; has spoken
Carol Browner, energy czar
1. listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group's Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for "global governance" and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change
2. ran the EPA under President Clinton; she was on the board of directors for the National Audubon Society, the League of Conservation Voters, the Center for American Progress and former Vice President Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection
bump & mark
Carry on! This isn’t geting much play in the Drive-by media.
very little on Drudge also ...
They get stuck sooooo easily.
RE: Driveby Media
Exactly! They will repeat Al Gore’s lies from earlier today, then back them up with UN parlance and add a Carol Browner quote and sign-off with “Zero still intends to sign the Climate Treaty” (oops, meant ‘climate agreement’)
Vile treason if you-know-who signs on. Time to shop Home Depot for some hemp.
It’s not likely they’ll have a president as amenable to their plans as this one, and collectively they apparently have the IQ to discern the opportunity, and the testosterone to attempt to seize it.
