Has Anyone Read the Copenhagen Agreement? U.N. plans for a new 'government' are scary.
WSJ Asia ^ | 10/28/2009 | JANET ALBRECHTSEN

Posted on 12/09/2009 12:33:17 PM PST by Nobel_1

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 Change—a 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.

The reason for the power grab is clear enough: Clause after complicated clause of the draft treaty requires developed countries to pay an "adaptation debt" to developing countries to supposedly support climate change mitigation. Clause 33 on page 39 says that "by 2020 the scale of financial flows to support adaptation in developing countries must be [at least $67 billion] or [in the range of $70 billion to $140 billion per year]."

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.

Re: Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after 'Danish text' leak

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).

Just who is Zero's Climate Czar

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

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’)

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.

I saw a TV ad this evening for the following organization. They are big into global warming and have a section dedicated to news articles that talk about a global tax, and rich nations subsidizing poorer countries. They promote climate change and global poverty as two of their major “causes” and are obviously targeting a young demographic. Oh, and the only religious groups they are partnering with are Islamic Relief and Union for Reform Judaism.

I wonder where the money behind this organization is coming from:

As much as I like and respect Lord Monckton, I can not corroborate what he says in the video.

I cannot find any official record of what’s to be in the treaty. I can find what several NGOs want in the treaty, but no draft treaty itself.

Anybody?

He’s going to gut this country. He’s going to sell us out piece-by-piece to the United Nations. He’ll leave our economy devastated, our military gutted and demoralized, our sovereignty in tatters.

Then he’ll become Secretary General of the U.N. King of the World.

That’s why he’s impervious to his poll numbers. He doesn’t care. His next term will be served in the U.N...

That’s my latest nightmare, anyway.

It seems to me that you have very little faith in our Constitution as written.

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can nullify and/or suspend "The Constitution", domestic and/or foreign, without a blood bath.
That's why the Aussies (they seem to know much more about our Constitution) are thankful for it! (read the last paragraph)

The Clown in Chief can grand stand all he wants, the next President can void everything he signs, unless if ratified by both Houses with majority votes.

I've lost my faith in the "American Voters" wisdom, but I will never lose my faith in the United States of America's Constitution!

Bend over. The game is over. The one worlders... and their many divers forms of subjects, call them commies and your correct... call them socialist and your correct... call them by all forms of salutation, and your correct have won.
Who ultimately wins the most.........the international bankers and their subject industrial clients. For the most part the rest of the world's citizens really loss. Big time in the long run. This is not about helping third world nations grow... those behind the curtains that call the shots... could give a shit less about them. They only want total control. This is one step further in total control of all the world's governments and resources.

Oh my gosh! He forgot to say they’re bankrupt!

After listening to some of the representives speaking with reporters, said it all....” I’m here for a deal.. “our cows are dying from gobal warming”.(africa)”America has to act”..

So far easy to see they’re all at the feeding trough. All want their share and could care less about the climate. What a show!
