UN Climate Chief Says Communism Is Best To Fight Global Warming

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the
industrialized civilizations collapse?
Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about
?”
– Maurice Strong,
founder of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to
be a new form of the ten commandments.
They lay the foundation for a sustainable
global earth community.

– Mikhail Gorbachev,
co-author of The Earth Charter

UN climate chief : Communism is the best to fight global warming

Michael Bastasch – 15 Jan, 2014

United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.

China may be the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres.

“They actually want to breathe air that they don’t have to look at,” she said. “They’re not doing this because they want to save the planet. They’re doing it because it’s in their national interest.”

Figueres added that the deep partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing any sort of legislation to fight global warming. The Chinese Communist Party, on the other hand, can push key policies and reforms all on its own. The country’s national legislature largely enforces the decisions made by the party’s Central Committee and other executive offices.

Communism was responsible for the deaths of about 94 million people in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe in the 20th Century. China alone was responsible for 65 million of those deaths under communist rule.

Environmentalists often hail China as a model for fighting global warming, since they are a “leader” in renewable energy. The country set a goal of getting 15 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020. In 2012, China got 9 percent of its power from renewables — the U.S. by contrast got 11 percent in 2012.

However, the country still gets 90 percent of its power from fossil fuels, mostly from coal. In fact, Chinese coal demand is expected to explode as the country continues to develop. China has approved 100 million metric tons of new coal production capacity in 2013 as part of the government’s plan to bring 860 million metric tons of coal production online by 2015.

China has publicly made big efforts to clean up its environment. The country’s booming industrial apparatus has caused so much pollution that the skies have been darkened over major cities and the air quality has heavily deteriorated.

China is also able to implement policies because its political system avoids some of the legislative hurdles seen in countries including the U.S., Figueres said.

__________

The political divide in the U.S. Congress has slowed efforts to pass climate legislation and is “very detrimental” to the fight against global warming, she said.

Christiana Figueres is living in fantasy land.

China has adopted a pure capitalist model, combined with state-run market and labour control, to pursue the biggest industrial expansion the world has ever seen.

Its ‘renewable revolution’ is providing nearly the entire eco-brainwashed-western-world with its ‘clean energy‘ hardware to fight global-non-warming.

China can manufacture renewables wind and solar at a far more competitive rate than its western consumers. A no-win situation for Australia who export the steel and coal to China, who then manufacture without the burden of carbon taxes or emissions controls. Australia then imports the renewables back from China to satisfy its emissions target fantasies. The consumer then pays the Renewable Energy Target (RET) on top of the $23 per ton carbon (dioxide) making its electricity even more expensive again » more jobs and industry are lost to China.

China’s own ‘personal’ use of renewable energy, splashed across the ABC and other global warming sympathetic media, is grade-school eco-propaganda to appease critics of its noncompliance to any United Nations “save the planet” treaty. Smart China. Gullible West.

Renewables will never, ever be able to provide China with the energy required to pursue its current expansion goals, let alone go close to providing enough base-load power to satisfy the West’s deluded hunger for ‘feel-good’ renewables unreliables.

Everyday, China gets stronger as they pursue the capitalist model, while the Western world gets weaker as it wilfully embraces the United Nations’ misanthropic, malthusian, eco-socialist agenda.

China ENERGY USAGE

China’s fossil energy output exceeded new wind energy by 6 times and solar by 27 times.

Figueres’ communist intent would allow her to silence dissent from non-believers who remain sceptical of her eco-fascist, totalitarian ideology. A totalitarian, democracy-free-zone allowing The United Nations to ram its draconian climate policy and sustainability agenda through, unopposed.

Meanwhile the planet refuses to warm after 17 years and 3 months, despite 35% of all human CO₂ emissions, since 1751, emitted over the same period. Clearly, something other than evil human carbon dioxide carbon pollution drives climate and temperature change.

A must watch – Greening the Planet – Dr. Matt Ridley

Watts Up With That?

I met Matt Ridley for the first time in person last month on his trip through California. We shared lunch in Novato on a Saturday, it was a pleasant and enlightening conversation. Dr. Ridley “gets it”; he gets what climate skepticism is all about, and gets what I am about. I’m honored to count him among my friends.

He has this new video out, from his next stop after visiting with me, please take a moment to watch, and more importantly, to share. Ridley’s message is simple – through our own activities, we are making the world a better, greener place.

Paul Ehrlich wrong again: World Cereal Production Set To Reach Historic High

Climatism comment : Odd quotes from the Malthusian godfather of eco-Alarmism and dud predictions:

  • “Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.” – Malthusian, eco-alarmist Paul R. Ehrlich in The American Spectator, September 6, 1992
  • “In ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish.” – Paul R. Ehrlich, Earth Day 1970
  • “The battle to feed humanity is over. In the 1970s the world will undergo famines . . . hundreds of millions of people (including Americans) are going to starve to death.” – Paul R. Ehrlich (Population Bomb 1960)
  • “I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.” – Paul R. Ehrlich (1969)
  • “By 1985 enough millions will have died to reduce the earth’s population to some acceptable level, like 1.5 billion people.” – Paul R. Ehrlich (1969)
  • “We’ve already had too much economic growth in the United States. Economic growth in rich countries like ours is the disease, not the cure.” – Paul R. Ehrlich. Quoted by Dixy Lee Ray in her book Trashing the Planet (1990)

Alarmist Paul R. Ehrlich now works for The Royal Society, (to bolster their credibility /sarc) ~ “Nullius In Verba”

Watts Up With That?

There’s a surging current of alarm that we’re headed for a food doomsday by 2050—that the world’s food-producing capacity will crash before population peaks at 10 billion. Don’t you believe it! Smart technology and better management policies will let us feed the hungry hordes to midcentury and beyond. —IEEE Spectrum, Summer 2013

World total cereal production is forecast to increase by about 7 percent in 2013 compared to last year, helping to replenish global inventories and raise expectations for more stable markets in 2013/14, according to the latest issue of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization’s quarterly Crop Prospects and Food Situation report. —Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 11 July 2013
