When Alice went through the looking glass, she found a world where things were completely the reverse of what they are in the real world. Of course, Lewis Carrolls masterpiece was intended as a parody of the mendacious politicians of the day.
Today we have something beyond parody, and that is the U.N. climate bureaucracy and its acolytes. Because the U.N. agencies are bureaucracies, it is perhaps understandable that they should seek at all times to increase their own power and control over the worlds people. But what is not understandable is when that quest turns into a campaign to keep the poor people of the world in poverty. Yet that is exactly where the U.N. now finds itself with the campaign for what it calls climate justice. That campaign is based on completely false premises, and could not have been better designed to keep the poor poor than if that had been the principal and only purpose. The advocates of so-called climate justice seem to be totally unaware of the reprehensible morality of their campaign. Instead, they flaunt their own high levels of consumption, and look to as leaders those at the very most extreme levels of high consumption.

This guy doesn’t understand. The idea is to reduce the standard of living in the developed world through extremely heavy regulation and regulation while raising the standard of living through wealth transfer to the developing world, ie, equalization of standards of living even if that means reverting to a standard of living far below what we have today. (of course, the world wide ruling elite necessary to administer this would require a somewhat higher standard of living to compensate for their efforts on the behalf of the people of the world.)
should be regulation and taxation.
