The UN prepares to make a play for more US tax dollars
I'm growing a little tired of debating the whole man-made global warming charade, and up until now, the dreadful collection of despots, thugs, and criminals known as the United Nations has stayed safely at a distance. But that's all about to change, especially if Hillary gets elected queen. First, here are are a few paragraphs from a recent article reporting on the UN's latest declaration about the menace of global warming...
VALENCIA, Spain - The Earth is hurtling toward a warmer age at a quickening pace, a Nobel-winning U.N. scientific panel said in a landmark report Saturday, warning of inevitable human suffering and the threat of species extinction.
The report also offered blueprints to avert the worst catastrophes. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said climate change imperils "the most precious treasures of our planet."
The potential impact of global warming is "so severe and so sweeping that only urgent, global action will do," Ban told the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change after it issued its fourth and final report this year.
That's the usual meaningless diatribe we've come to expect from the useless UN, but here's the kicker...
The report does not commit participating governments to any course of action. But it is important because it is adopted by consensus, meaning those countries accept the underlying science and cannot disavow its conclusions. It provides a common scientific baseline for the political talks.
Translated, that means the UN will reserve the right to levy taxes on countries which do not meet the ridiculous emissions goals set forth by them. The UN thugs have always wanted a larger piece of the American economic pie and punitive emissions taxes to save the Earth from the imaginary menace of global warming is how they'll go about it. A conservative in the oval office will simply tell the UN where to stick their taxes, but a liberal democrat, i.e. Hillary, will subserviently bow to the UN demand because liberals place the financial gluttony of the UN before the economic welfare of the US. Liberals don't think it's fair that America is richer than other countries and would gladly "share" our wealth with poorer countries....as if tax-payers don't fork over hundreds of times more in aid than any other country on Earth already.
