UN COP27 Blueprint: More Government, More Debt, More Taxes

Essay by Eric Worrall

The unusual alignment of Western political and electoral cycles has created an unprecedented opportunity for a massive green power grab.

The following table from the UN Emissions Gap Report 2022 appears to summarise what the United Nations wants to achieve at COP27.

Source: UN Emissions Gap Report 2022

The plan also calls for massive wealth transfers – joint projects, green investment clubs, and green banks for poor countries.

I wonder which wealthy nation is supposed to provide the bulk of the funding these green boondoggles would demand? I wonder is any of the taxpayer’s money transferred offshore to fund UN climate projects would somehow slip back into the pockets of some of the Western politicians who facilitated the transfer?

Only a strong voter turnout in the US midterm elections can prevent this massive transfer of wealth to other countries from happening.

All major English speaking nations are currently run by left wing net zero obsessed politicians – and I include the British Conservatives in this assessment.

The USA is the only major English speaking country which has a near term opportunity to stop this power grab, at the midterm elections on the 8th November this year.

Britain, Australia and Canada have much longer to wait until voters can deliver their verdict on UN climate communism. The next British national election does not have to occur until January 2025. Same for Australia. And Trudeau, who won an election in 2021, can also wait out his full four year term until 2025.

All eyes are on the United States. There could be a lot more riding on the midterm elections than who gets to control the US Congress and Senate.

What else is new here? Isn’t more government, more laws and restrictions and higher taxes the solution for everything these days.

I am beginning to believe there are more subtle and sinister motives. Could it be concentration of power? Otherwise, why would they want to make energy, primarily fossil fuels, the sustainer of human life, more scarce and unaffordable?

Lets just skip the carbon tax and go straight to an air tax. That way everyone can pay according to the amount of air they breathe. Of course, athletes will pay more, but pearl divers will pay less.

IF a SIN TAX is to be levied against any country for the SIN of EMISSION then it should be levied against EVERY country on an equitable basis. That being one of any country that adds to the SIN GAS load must pay into the fund an amount equal to their portion of the global addition. For example if the global fund requires $1,000,000,000,000 Trillion in annual funding, then a country that is responsible for adding 1% of the total annual emissions should be required to contribute 1% of the fund annually ($10B) and a country that adds 10% to the total global emissions should be required to contribute 10% of the fund. This should apply to ALL countries equally even developing ones. It should be a rule that a country can’t seek payment from the fund if they aren’t also contributing to it in mind. Fair is Fair…
Current emissions by country

Once China is equally forced to contribute their 30+% of the fund then and only then should any other country be required to do so and China should be unable to access any of the funding if they aren’t paying in their fair share.
If a country lowers their emissions they also lower their required contribution levels

Don’t put ideas into empty heads Bryan.
Where is this great mountain of cash going to end up? .
In the most useless of politicians pockets .
No country has ever flourished by over taxing their people .
Less government lets businesses grow and prosper employ people and pay fair taxes .
Make the cake bigger and then every one will end up with a slice .

surely it would be more equitable for countries to contribute on a per capita basis?

Why? Australia is a net Carbon sink. Even though it shows 1% emissions. On a per capita basis should we get reparations or pay?

Nope, far more equitable to contribute climate cash as a percentage equal to the percentage they contribute in their Sin of EMISSION vs the rest of the world.

From the Report: ” … we are far from the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C, preferably 1.5°C [above pre-industrial] … to avoid global catastrophe”.
According to Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) the linear trend from 1850 is almost there while the actual supposed recorded temperatures around 1850 and around 2020 are now +1.5C.
I guess that explains the rise in climate catastrophes being reported around the world nowadays 😱 .
Or maybe the world is not in fact 1.5C warmer than 170 years ago, there is no way of knowing.

“Or maybe the world is not in fact 1.5C warmer than 170 years ago, there is no way of knowing.”

You won’t get that information from the bastardized BEST computer runs.

The truth is it was just as warm in the Early Twentieth Century as it is today, but you won’t see that displayed on a BEST chart. That’s the Big Lie the alarmists have been operating on all this time: Bastardized temperature charts that support the false narrative of human-caused global warming.

It’s not “hotter and hotter” as the alarmist claim. The truth is it is not any hotter than the recent past, and now the temperatures are cooling, which would make sense if the temperatures operate in a cyclical manner, warming for a few decades and then cooling for a few decades and then repeating the process. This has been going on since the end of the Little Ice Age, but you won’t see it on any of the bastardized alarmist temperature charts.

The alarmists are trying their best to dupe us into believing something that they cannot prove.

It’s really criminal considering the consequences of this lie, and that will become more obvious as people die from these alarmist maniacs actions to curb CO2.

I was going to joke that COP27 is a bust so they need to go to Fiji for a better junket. Well, it turns out that’s in the works, after one more desert extravaganza in Dubai. COP29 is the one every greenwashed billionaire will want to attend. A tour from Australia to Pacific islands!

Australia will need a U-turn from the LNP. An admission that Morrison railroaded the rest to set the NutZero target..

Australia only needs to mine iron ore, gas and coal to pay the bills. There is no need to manufacture anything as long as China keeps playing the game. Against that backdrop, Australia has the greatest potential to achieve high penetration of intermittent W&S into the electrical grid as any G20 nation.

Germany is still holding near full stocks of gas. Consumption is lower this year than previous years – so far. Next weekend will be getting colder so the situation could change by the end of November. But if Germany gets by this winter without at least rolling blackouts then it is the long term decline of the economy that counts and that is like watching grass grow.

Peter Dutton just needs to bide his time and watch Bowen and Albanese slide into the morass of electricity politics in Australia. Hip pocket nerve will do the rest. Chalmers got baffled by his own commentary on the average $275 increase in electricity household costs for 2022. But Bowen is the one that needs to be crucified as their electricity policy unravels.When that happens, Dutton will look a better option.

No point waiting for the LNP to get back into power. They missed the boat when in power for 9 years. ABC still getting funded, coal power shutting down, champions of migration for big Australia etc. Can’t think of a dam being built either. Useless. Even if they do get into power at the next oppurtunity, it takes a long time to build a series of sensible powerplants and it takes at least 2 generations to shrug off a religious cult like CAGW

Auf basis of a new world order (multipolar world) the situation will change dramatically. The article mentions “english speaking countries”: What wold be the number of “english speaking countries”, and would it be sure that in a new world order the “english speaking countries”(especially the US) could preserve their supremacy and hegemony? It is felt that basic changes concerning the future of COP and the CO2 and climate alarmism could be expected.

To the EU plans to ban autos with internal combustion engines: The position will be reviewed in 2026. In the meantime even the large car manufacturers has changed their strategy und develop platforms which could be used both for cars with internal combustion engines and for e-cars. According to my experiences with an e-car (I drive also an e-car), the e-cars would be rather a blind alley. Ordinary people could be simple, however they are definitely not idiots and they will wake up, and the invoice will be presented to the CO2 and climate alarmists.

CO2-tax: Like the letters of indulgence in the middle ages. And what was the end of the big business with the letters of indulgence? A certain Martin Luther appeared on the scene, and the letter of indulgence was suddenly blown away. Let’s see what will happen even in the near future.

“Britain, Australia and Canada have much longer to wait until voters can deliver their verdict on UN climate communism. The next British national election does not have to occur until January 2025….”

And when the election comes, there will be a choice between three parties all of whom advocate Net Zero to ‘tackle climate change’.

Without any of them ever explaining how Net Sero is supposed to do this!

From the article: “All major English speaking nations are currently run by left wing net zero obsessed politicians – and I include the British Conservatives in this assessment.”

We should include an unknown number of U.S. Republicans in that group, too.

We’ll learn more about the postions of the various Republicans after the November elections when they have to start dealing with this CO2 fiasco.

I heard Doctor Oz tip his hat to CO2-caused climate change in an interview yesterday. He advocated natural gas as a transition fuel until we can get more windmills going. Oz is certainly a better candidate than the Democrat, but he has a long way to go in understanding CO2. He needs a talk with Dr. Happer.

Republican voters have a lot of work to do to dissuade their representatives from buying into the Net Zero lies.

It does look like Republicans are going to get the majority in the U.S. House, and there is a very good chance they will get the majority in the U.S. Senate, too. Republicans need 60 votes in the U.S. Senate in order to put a big dent in Joe Biden’s destructive agenda.

It won’t be long now. The Democrats are in a panic. As well they should be. Joe should be in a panic. We’re coming for you in January, Joe. Your whole family is going down, including you. And then there’s Hillary and Obama. Oh, this is going to be fun! The truth will out. And some people on the Democrat side are not going to look very good when it does.

What we need are carton taxes. Every day, a kabillion or so boxes (aka “cartons”) make their way to homes and businesses, with Amazon being a big culprit, ranging in size from that of a peanut to that of an elephant (roughly). I haven’t actually measured them, and I have a whole bunch myself. They pile up everywhere – in basements, garages, barns, and warehouses faster than people can find the time to deal with. Some boxes, ok most, you think “this is a nice box, and I might be able to re-use it, and besides I don’t have time to break it down right now, maybe later.” And so, they pile up. Often, they have packing materials in them as well, which again you thik you might be able to use. We are headed for a tsunami of boxes, or a “carton catastrophe”, which threatens the planet. We must stop the madness before it’s too late!

The answer for these green devils to fight the faux problem global warming, clearly doesn’t work. That is wind and solar. They have chosen to put the so called solution behind and punish non believers instead, it is so much easier. These people are despicable.

When will there be an end to unrealistic atmospheric CO2 growth graphs. The atmospheric CO2 level has increased only one hundredth of one percent of atmosphere in the past sixty years. That increase should graph as an almost flat line.
