Skip to comments.UN Climate Chief Recommends Communism As The Best Way To Fight Global Warming
Posted on 01/20/2014 3:09:22 PM PST by kingattax
Climate change has been a popular topic of conversation lately and it appears the United Nations is taking a stand on the environmental changes. The UN climate chief, Christiana Figueres, also apparently knows about how government systems affect the climate. Oh wait, no she doesnt.
She stated earlier this week that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. She also said that communist China is instead the best model.
Even though China is the worlds top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggles with major pollution issues of their own, apparently Ms. Figueres thinks that means they are doing it right when it comes to fighting global warming.

You can see how much better communism is on technical issues and protecting the environment by comparing the minor accident at Chernobyl with the disasters at TMI and Fukushima. Oh, wait....
The USSR had low levels of industry other than military... but produced copious amounts of pollution for those it did have, because under socialism/communism, no one gives a crap.
Dr. Robert Stadler and Wesley Mouch have spoken.
Green is the new Red.
Even a retarded pig finds a truffle sometimes, and sometimes, a liberal tells the truth. She is admitting that global warming is being presented as an issue ENTIRELY in a bid to increase government control over your life. Funny how the government always seems to find problems that can only be solved that way.
Fighting corruption and a scam with more corruption and a scam. Yeah. I guess that would work.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
It's been that way for quite a while.
The perfect hoax-first, create an imaginary crisis and declare a draconian, remedy that enslaves mankind, which is the real objective. Then when the crisis fails to materialize, take credit for the fix.
Sure, they are doing such a bang up job of reducing pollutants in China.
Guess disappearing doesn’t only happen at night.
so called "environmental laws" would the first to be suspended for the "better good".
Communism is the best system to fight global warming because it eliminates anyone who thinks differently and calls global warming out as a gargantuan glob of BS.
I’m guessing she favors the Pol Pot and Chairman Mao versions of communism with a dash of Stalin. When we get down to about 100 million total human population on the planet, the enviro left might be satisfied.
Is insanity just the accepted norm these days?
At the time the newly hatched United Nations was panhandling for a site to construct its modern Tower of Babel, the Rockefeller family (gee, what other organizations has THAT gang spawned?) stepped forward and
DONATED $8.6 million to purchase the property at Turtle Bay on the East River.
It is believed by a number of historians to be the very site where, on September 22, 1776, 21 year-old American patriot Captain Nathan Hale was hanged by the Brits after declaring I regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
Do you, like me, suppose that to be an in-your-face flight of sick cabalistic humor to site the organization at the center of the destruction of the American national sovereignty for which Hale fought and gave his life near where he was hanged?
I'd say watermelon, but I'd probably be called a racist.
Would that be OK with the UN crime syndicate?
There is a suprise. The UN favors communism. The UN favors communism for everything. If ever proof was needed that AGW was a complete hoax. Here it is. Further if ever there was a néed for proof that the UN could not care less for the environment , here it is. Throw these b@stards out of our country now congress. Hey pubbies in congress, how about a vote of censure for the UN. I won’t hold my breath for either.
Mankind never ceases to underwhelm me.
I have learned what the true nature of mankind is.
Mankind is a liar.
Well there is green like a watermelon and green like a grape.
Cut open a green grape and its green on the inside.
Cut open a watermelon and its Red on the inside. Free enterprise hating Greens are Red inside like a watermelon.
Strength of Communist China are, all candidates for gov must take a Civil Service Exam to test core knowledge, entry level officials are given assignments in local and county gov to see how they do. If they do well, they move up. Operates by generational phases. They will argue and then agree to a five year plan. They stick to the five year plan, and after it is over do an assessment. Chinese gov officials are technical and are not lawyers. IAW they react to data and not who hires them. Younger candidates for leadership usually observe the ones in power, make notes of what went wrong and when they assume top leadership try to improve on it. Note when waiting in the wings, these younger candidates do not openly criticize the ones in charge knowing that things can go wrong when you are in charge. The concept of criticizing the ones on top so you can look good and vying to replace them is not encouraged under the Chinese system.
Here are the Chinese weaknesses. Officials at the local level really represent central gov only. Less in tune with local needs. Five year plans rarely change even when it goes wrong. No one wants to make the leaders lose face. So the country suffers for five years before it ends and a new five year phase begins. Gov has great perks and power, thus the ruling class wants their kids to have first shot at the position. The best and brightest in the nation do not necessarily have the chance to be in gov. Corruption and nepotism will undermine Communist legitimacy. Chinese people trust the technical competency of their officials but do not trust their integrity in terms of financial and family conflict of interests. Rule of law is weak in China. Connected members of the ruling class in China gets preferential treatment in court then average Chinese on the street unless outrage was committed by the favored family member.
Several years back there was book written call “What We Can Learn From China”. Conservatives pooh pooh the book, but it is worth reading because it outlines the civil service approach of the Chinese system (a system that served the Imperial system and adopted by the anti feudal Communists!!). It emphasizes the pros of the Chinese approach, but one can deduct the cons to it. The reason it is important to study is since the US financial imploded in 2008, emerging nations are looking for a model to modernize and advance economically. I know many in the FR are quick to point out Chinese screw ups when implementing free market capitalism, but we must be careful. The financial implosion caused by liar loans and subprime mortgages and the lack of US gov oversight at the fraud can be pointed out as an American screw up. Obamacare can be pointed out as an American screw up. Our deficit spending piling up debt equal to the US GDP (plus 70 trillion in unfunded liabilities) can be pointed out as an American screw up. All these screw ups were policies that the American people voted for via free elections.
Is insanity just the accepted norm these days?
For many it is.
“If communism is so great, why didn’t they build a picture window instead of an iron curtain?” - Alfred E. Neuman
You missed one remove. If normal people are less-than-specks, wouldn’t that make Congressmen less-than-less-than-less-than-less-than-less-than-specks?
The time has come to get the UN out of the US and the US out of the UN.
Which is dumber? Harboring this global failure on our shores or paying them one more cent?
Shut it down. Move it to The Hague or Babylon. They will be right at home.
PING! Didn’t your prophesy this?
Watermelons, green on the outside, commie red on the inside.
The real desire of these people is communism—with them in control. Nothing new here. I wouldn’t waste a moment debating the GW nonsense, because it isn’t about the climate or the environment.
Simple: increase our taxes every year until Global Warming stops, except for the last 15 years when Global Warming was cancelled - - - .
Well, as we've been saying all along, the AGW movement was always about wealth redistribution.
Concur. Should have been done in the 60s.
“Watermelons, green on the outside, commie red on the inside.”
This concept/term goes back over 12 years or so.
Communist: Green on the outside, red on the inside.
Excellent analysis. China’s bureaucratic non-hereditary monarchy is no longer the ossified creature of antiquity that once dismissed Western thought as unworthy of emulation. This is mainly why I think the Chinese economic miracle has decades of life left - at least until they’re done copying all the technology the West has come up with. Then they’ll plateau out like Japan.
