Gore: U.S. Climate Bill Will Help Bring About 'Global Governance'

Former Vice President Al Gore declared that the Congressional climate bill will help bring about “global governance.”

“I bring you good news from the U.S., “Gore said on July 7, 2009 in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by UK Times.

“Just two weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed the Waxman-Markey climate bill,” Gore said, noting it was “very much a step in the right direction.” President Obama has pushed for the passage of the bill in the Senate and attended a G8 summit this week where he agreed to attempt to keep the Earth's temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees C.

Gore touted the Congressional climate bill, claiming it “will dramatically increase the prospects for success” in combating what he sees as the “crisis” of man-made global warming.

“But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements.” (Editor's Note: Gore makes the “global governance” comment at the 1min. 10 sec. mark in this UK Times video.)

Gore's call for “global governance” echoes former French President Jacques Chirac's call in 2000.

On November 20, 2000, then French President Chirac said during a speech at The Hague that the UN's Kyoto Protocol represented "the first component of an authentic global governance."

“For the first time, humanity is instituting a genuine instrument of global governance,” Chirac explained. “From the very earliest age, we should make environmental awareness a major theme of education and a major theme of political debate, until respect for the environment comes to be as fundamental as safeguarding our rights and freedoms. By acting together, by building this unprecedented instrument, the first component of an authentic global governance, we are working for dialogue and peace,” Chirac added.

Former EU Environment Minister Margot Wallstrom said, "Kyoto is about the economy, about leveling the playing field for big businesses worldwide." Canadian Prime Minster Stephen Harper once dismissed UN's Kyoto Protocol as a “socialist scheme.”

'Global Carbon Tax' Urged at UN Meeting

In addition, calls for a global carbon tax have been urged at recent UN global warming conferences. In December 2007, the UN climate conference in Bali, urged the adoption of a global carbon tax that would represent “a global burden sharing system, fair, with solidarity, and legally binding to all nations.”

“Finally someone will pay for these [climate related] costs,” Othmar Schwank, a global tax advocate, said at the 2007 UN conference after a panel titled “A Global CO2 Tax.”

Schwank noted that wealthy nations like the U.S. would bear the biggest burden based on the “polluters pay principle.” The U.S. and other wealthy nations need to “contribute significantly more to this global fund,” Schwank explained. He also added, “It is very essential to tax coal.”

The 2007 UN conference was presented with a report from the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment titled “Global Solidarity in Financing Adaptation.” The report stated there was an “urgent need” for a global tax in order for “damages [from climate change] to be kept from growing to truly catastrophic levels, especially in vulnerable countries of the developing world.”

The tens of billions of dollars per year generated by a global tax would “flow into a global Multilateral Adaptation Fund” to help nations cope with global warming, according to the report.

Schwank said a global carbon dioxide tax is an idea long overdue that is urgently needed to establish “a funding scheme which generates the resources required to address the dimension of challenge with regard to climate change costs.”

'Redistribution of wealth'

The environmental group Friends of the Earth advocated the transfer of money from rich to poor nations during the 2007 UN climate conference.

"A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources,” said Emma Brindal, a climate justice campaigner coordinator for Friends of the Earth.

[Editor's Note: Many critics have often charged that proposed climate tax and regulatory “solutions” were more important to the promoters of man-made climate fears than the accuracy of their science. Former Colorado Senator Tim Wirth reportedly said, "We've got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing — in terms of economic policy and environmental policy."]

Well, you can't much more direct than that, can you? "Global governance!" I know some of you guys up here aren't particularly religious, but the Christian Bible has all of this covered, and if you read about it, things do not get better. And I just read in today's paper about the new RFID chip being put in U.S. passports, whiich will allow Big Brother to track anyone carrying one. And the RFID chip is being added to driver's licenses in at least 4 states, with more on the way. Homeland Security makes light of these things, but pretty soon, you will be able to be tracked anywhere, and the next step is to make thes RFID chips mandatory. In which case, you will not be able to function in society unless you use the technology. Also in the Bible.

We are in dire times, ladies and gents! Be afraid! Be VERY afriad!

That's the way I'm seein' it. I can only hope I'm dead before the really bad stuff starts...unless I'm already tagged to be a part of it. Hope not.

Global Warming is a farce as is Gore. However Global Governance is very Real and grabs more of our lives everyday. I am astounded as to how many are yet sleeping through all this and when you bring it up, oh don't talk about that. My church is even asleep to it all!

Thanks Guys for your alertness and awareness.

Take Care folks

Too many people are asleep today to what is happening. Those are the ones that voted for "change" :fie: At one time there was a map circulating showing the voting done by county. This was done by a professor at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Very interesting as the cities voted for "change" and the country side voted for the other side.

Scientists (the real ones) have showed, through sampling of lake bottoms, that there has been temperature variations for thousands of years. Some have generated theories that there are solar (the sun, ya know :biggrin:) cycles that effect the earth which also has temperature cycles. Plus they have shown that the poles have changed places several times.

All this information is out there (try Google :pleasantry:). Time to poke your neighbor in the ribs to wake them up to reality :biggrin:.
