How much do you know about the proposed treaty? Your government doing its best to keep you informed about what it is all about?


Of course they are, open and democratic all the way.

Ok, how about this:

Annex 1, Paragraph 33:

By 2020 the scale of financial flows to support adaptation in developing countries must be [at least USD 67 billion] [in the range of USD 70-140 billion] per year.

How much? Every year?

Annex III, Section E, paragraph 17:

[[Developed [and developing] countries] [Developed and developing country Parties] [All Parties] [shall] [should]:]
        (a)  Compensate for damage to the LDCs’ economy and also compensate for lost opportunities, resources, lives, land and dignity, as many will become environmental refugees;
         (b)  Africa, in the context of environmental justice, should be equitably compensated for environmental, social and economic losses arising from the implementation of response

Dignity? opportunities? Does demanding money add to their dignity? We gotta pay because we have WOUNDED THEIR FUCKING DIGNITY?

Annex 1, Section C, paragraph 41:

[Financial resources of the Convention Adaptation Fund"] [may] [shall] include: (a) [Assessed contributions [of at least 0.7% of the annual GDP of developed country parties]

0.7% of GDP, every year, turned over to the UN. Bigoted, racist and corrupt.

That’s a whole lot of moolah to be spent on buying patronage and clientele, isn’t it. How much exactly? Well, Australia has a GDP of 1 trillion dollars US. That’s seven billion dollars from po’ lil ole Oz alone. The UK? $2.6 trillion or 17 billion dollars in payments. The US? $14 trillion or 98 billion dollars.

Just from those three countries the UN gets $122 billion dollars to spend on all its favourite people.

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? But wait, there’s more.

Annex IV, paragraph 16, Option 1, alternative 1:

An assessed contribution from developed country Parties based on the principles of equity, common but differentiated responsibilities, respective capabilities, GDP, GDP per capita, the polluter pays principle historical responsibility of Annex I Parties, historical climate debt, including adaptation debt, amounting to [[0.5–1][0.8][2] per cent of gross national product] at least [0.5–1 per cent of GDP]].

Can’t make out much at all there, but 1 percent of GDP looks pretty ominous.

But still, that is $122 Billion from just three countries, that the UN can use to buy influence and subvert freedom and democracy around the world. Then there is the rest of Europe.

Every year.

Damn, but Mercedes will love this. Land Rover too.

Ok, I am working to a script here. Andrew Bolt has done a superb analysis of this over here.

You think that because we are handing over the dosh that we might get a bigger say in spending it than maybe Cuba, Venezuela or Sudan? Hah. Dream on. Just like the crappy UN Human Rights Council? The ‘developed countries’ get just one vote in nine on the spending body. This is gunna be a bonanza, a cornucopia of goodies for every crook liar and thief who ever got a job as tranzi.

And that’s just the start – wait ‘til you learn about the Billion dollar fines we got to pay if we are silly enough to want reliable power supplies.

These fuckers governing us hate us. They really do.

Go read Andrew.

    Well this is the same scam as the Lisbon Treaty isn’t it?

    We are being told and sold the story that this Treaty is all about Climate change, but what it is really about is an attempt at setting up a proto World Government with it’s own tax raising powers.

    Anyone know a relatively inexpensive African country that we can buy and move to, then just sit on the beach next to the mailbox and wait for the billions in handout cheques to roll in?

    Te Saudis and OPEC are going to Copenhagen with a view to getting trillions of dollars of compensation for the oil we are not going to buy if we reduce our carbon emissions!

  4. Rob Fisher says:

    I’m wondering how they justify it. It the science about whether or not there is any unusual warming is so dodgy, I can only imagine how tenuous the “science” that says Africa will suffer as a result of climate change must be. So what research to they point to that tells them why all these payouts are needed?

    But then I realise I am asking all the wrong questions.
