Posted on 11/06/2010 11:28:07 PM PDT by SmartInsight
Raising $100 billion a year of climate finance by 2020 is challenging, but possible through mechanisms including carbon markets, domestic carbon taxes and a variety of international transportation taxes, a United Nations advisory group said in a report Friday.
Earlier this year, the UN's Ban established the panel, which includes U.S. National Economic Council Director Larry Summers, billionaire financier George Soros and Deutsche Bank vice-chairman Caio Koch-Weser.
The financing will be used to support mitigation and adaptation efforts in developing countries--in particular, for the poorest and most vulnerable communities.

and it won’t do anything to reduce global warming.
UN panel urges higher taxes on emissions, transport to fight climate change

No way, Jose! FUBO!!
Looking forward to next week.....Beck’s going to blow Soros out of the water!
Maybe in 2012 we can elect more Republicans and a Republican president with some spine who will get us out of the UN and tell the UN to get out of the US.
That's a joke, right?
A German with a first name of the Italian word for "Bye!"
Vice Chairman? I should say so. $100B out to support quite a few vices.
"Koch"? Do you know how that's pronounced?
"Weser" isn't exactly "Wetter", but it's so close ya gotta be thinkin:
German Bank Chairman of Vice "Goodbye C*** Wetter"!
Is he why Bernanke is a monetary slut?
I am not above making fun of peoples' names!
If he pledges to drop the U.S. out of the U.N., and to form a new organization with the UK, Australia, Canada, and Israel...
JOHN BOLTON IN 2012!!!
$100B is chump change to Georgie Soros. If he is so dang worried about “the climate”, why don’t he pick up the tab?
Americans should be worried by the Commission’s recommendations: for instance, that some UN activities be funded through taxes on foreign-exchange transactions and multinational corporations. Economist James Tobin estimates that a 0.5 per cent tax on foreign-exchange transactions would raise $1.5 trillion annually — nearly equivalent to the U.S. federal budget.

Good luck with that here.
All the Democrats cap n trade, carbon tax, spread the wealth around the candidates went down to defeat. That can’t have escaped the notice of the John McCains and Lindsay Grahams in Washington on our side.
We’re sick and tired of having new taxes imposed on us in the name of the climate change scam. What is it about no new taxes the Left doesn’t understand?
The UN can go take a hike!
In other words, the warmists are admitting that the alleged warming cannot ever be stopped or reversed.
All we can do is, for example, build a ring of dikes like the Netherlands, around every coastal region on the globe, to protect them from rising sea levels. That's a lot of shovel-ready union jobs. Yeah, right.
THey misspelled his company. He’s actually the Chairman of
Shovel ready wealth redistribution to the bottomless Third World welfare pit.
Have at it!
When Ban Ki Moon took charge at the UN one of the first things he did was appoint Alicia Barcena, a Mexican environmentalist to be his head of management. She is an associate of Maurice Strong, an aging wealthy Canadian eco-nut [with an even nuttier wife]. Barcena was involved in the Rio Summit and in the Earth Council Alliance and later landed jobs at the UNEP & UNDP... in her more recent position she was involved managerially in an audit of UN funds to North Korea.
[see related source "At the United Nations, the Curious Career of Maurice Strong," fox news
Maurice Strong and his stepdaughter were involved with Tongsun Park, a lobbyist for Saddam Hussein and a person involved with a trust fund dedicated to North Korea using taxayers' funds from the US Dept of Energy and Canadian gvenment's CIDA.
Strong heads a company that has ownership of a chunk of China's coal and gas fields- and these will not be subject to these environmental whacko laws his buddies in the UN push, so he has much to gain.

The purpose is not to reduce global warming, the insiders know as well as you and I do that there is no such thing as global warming.
The purpose is to make you pay more money for energy that you have to buy to drive, to heat your house, even to eat. They are then going to take that extra money that you have to spend and use it to ENSLAVE YOU.
It's a game and they know they own you because if what I say is really true then it would have to be a conspiracy and all educated, thinking Ameircans know that conspiracies are simply theories, they just couldn't be true. By the time you figure out I'm right, it will be too late.
Yup. When Algore discovered it, he empowered lefties like they hadn’t been empowered before. Who wants to be against saving the planet? But that has never been its true agenda.
