UN’s Solution To Climate Change: End Capitalism

What will it take to keep the planet habitable?

According to some eco-warriors, all that’s necessary is to end capitalism—the one economic system that has lifted billions from poverty and suffering.

The latest United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report led Eric Holthaus, a Grist writer, to tweet enthusiastically, “The world’s top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capitalism as a key requirement to maintaining civilization and a habitable planet.”

The sentiment is not new. Three years ago, while pushing for the Paris Climate Accord, U.N. climate official Christiana Figueres described the strategy this way….

Global Warming: The UN’s Plan Ignores Real Costs Of Implementation

Last week, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a sizable new report titled “Global Warming of 1.5°C.

The basic premise of the report is that if the governments of the world do what the UN tells them to do, then global temperature rise will be limited to 1.5°C.

The report comes out of the Paris Agreement which backed a long-term goal to limit global temperature rise to “‘well below 2C’ and to ‘pursue efforts towards 1.5C’.”

Since then, the focus of UN policymakers and personnel has been to focus on putting together a policy agenda centered around the idea of using government mandates, taxes, regulations, and subsidies to limit global temperature rise to the selected value of 1.5°C. Previous plans had centered around limiting warming to 2°C, so the new plan represents a ratcheting up of goals to push through sizable taxes on carbon emissions, subsidies for “renewable” energy, and more….

UN Climate Change Report: A Choice Between “Mad Max And Hunger Games”

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) this week released a special report detailing all the ways climate change is predicted to wreak havoc on humans.

The report is about 800 pages long, so I’ll offer a summary to save you some time:

  • Global temperatures today are 1.0°C above pre-industrial temperatures.
  • We’re seeing an increase in extreme weather and other negative consequences as a result of the increase, including receding sea ice in the Arctic and rising global sea levels.
  • A 1.5°C increase will be (much) worse than a 1.0 increase; 2°C would be much worse than that.
  • We’re currently on track to exceed 3°C.
  • Only broad and drastic changes in the world economy can prevent global calamity.

The report’s glum findings were announced at a press conference by a United Nations panel in Incheon, South Korea. Panelists tried to sound optimistic, but there was no sugar-coating the report’s key finding….

United Nations: A $240 Per Gallon Gas Tax Is Needed To Fight Climate Change

The United Nations has declared that a $240 per gallon gasoline tax is “needed” to fight climate change. To limit global warming, the UN’s report says that $27,000 per tonne of gasoline will need to be stolen from the public by the year 2100.

For Americans, that’s the same as a $240 per gallon tax on gasoline in the year 2100, should such a recommendation be adopted. In 2030, which is only 12 years away, the report says that the carbon tax would need to be as high as $5,500, and the equivalent to a $49 per gallon gas tax, reported The Daily Caller. 

The constant fear mongering and theft of the public in the name of climate change has not dwindled much in the past ten years, and if anything, it has gotten worse. No amount of money will ever be enough to satisfy the ruling class elitists that expect us to just accept that they will continue to steal from us in the name of any agenda they try to scare us about. This is no longer about climate change, but about the desire to steal from those on the very bottom of the economic ladder by those who believe themselves to be superior with authority over everyone….

Nikki Haley Is Resigning As UN Ambassador — Here Are Some Of The Times She Was A Rockstar On The World Stage

President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that his United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley — a favorite among some conservatives — would resign.

United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley reportedly submitted her resignation to Trump after the two discussed it last week.

Haley was one of Trump’s first appointees when he took office in 2017 and she continually provided a pro-Israel presence at the U.N.

While at the United Nations, Haley also took an ardent stance against North Korea as it refused to capitulate to international demands on its nuclear program.

Here are some of her bold moments on the world stage….

READ: Nikki Haley’s Resignation Letter

Nikki Haley on Tuesday resigned as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in a surprising departure.

Sitting with Haley in the Oval Office, President Trump announced she would leave at the end of the year and said she wanted to “take a break” from public service.

“She’s done a fantastic job, and we’ve done a fantastic job together,” Trump said.

Both Trump and Haley sought to portray her exit on friendly terms, even though there has been friction between the two dating back to the 2016 presidential campaign….

Trump Has Accepted Nikki Haley’s Resignation

President Trump has accepted Nikki Haley’s resignation as UN Ambassador, the two said Tuesday morning in a public Oval Office meeting. She will exit at the end of the year, Trump said.

What we’re hearing: Haley discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, two sources said. Her news shocked a number of senior foreign policy officials in the Trump administration.

Axios was first to report the resignation earlier in the day.

Trump told reporters Tuesday that Haley raised the possibility of taking a break six months ago, and that she’s welcome back at any time.

Background: Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, was easily confirmed four days after President Trump’s inauguration in 2017.

She has overseen Trump’s shift in dealing with the UN, including the U.S. exit from the UN Human Rights Council, which Haley called the organization’s “greatest failure.”

Worth noting: Haley wrote a public op-ed in September challenging the N.Y. Times’ anonymous op-ed, which was written by a “senior administration official” and claimed that Trump aides saw him as a threat to U.S. democracy.

Haley wrote in her response:

  • “I don’t agree with the president on everything. When there is disagreement, there is a right way and a wrong way to address it. I pick up the phone and call him or meet with him in person.”
  • “Like my colleagues in the Cabinet and on the National Security Council, I have very open access to the president. He does not shut out his advisers, and he does not demand that everyone agree with him. I can talk to him most any time, and I frequently do.”
  • “If I disagree with something and believe it is important enough to raise with the president, I do it. And he listens.”
