The multinational crime syndicate known as the United Nations began plotting in Bali last week, to seize vast sums of wealth from US taxpayers. Of course Al Gore the glitterpig gladly damned the US for being the biggest contributor to the figment of his imagination we call global warming. Here's part of the article detailing the UN's plans to steal from US citizens...
Global Carbon Tax Urged at UN Climate Conference
BALI, Indonesia – A global tax on carbon dioxide emissions was urged to help save the Earth from catastrophic man-made global warming at the United Nations climate conference. A panel of UN participants on Thursday urged the adoption of a 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, told Inhofe EPW Press Blog following the panel discussion titled “A Global CO2 Tax.” Schwank is a consultant with the Switzerland based Mauch Consulting firm
Schwank said at least “$10-$40 billion dollars per year” could be generated by the tax, and 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 UN was presented with a new 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.
Show me in the Constitution where an international body comprised of thugs, dictators, and criminals can demand and receive access to US taxpayer money. Unless I'm mistaken, it would require a treaty, which would require approval of both houses of Congress...although a democrat in the White House would ferret out a way around the Constitution...it's what they try to do every day anyway.
Pay attention to this story folks. The UN and it's subversive liberal supporters among us like Al Gore, would love nothing more than to seize wealth from us taxpayers and distribute it to their despotic friends around the world.
Funny isn't is how Al Gore criticizes the US for being the biggest producer of CO2 in the world, but shrugs his shoulders when it's pointed out that we are also the biggest contributor to the world by far, of wealth, industrialization, medicine, transportation, agriculture, information, technology, economic/religious/political freedom, and charity, etc. The list goes on and on of the things we lead the world in. Of course we're rich. We deserve to be, and nobody has the right to steal it from us based on an idiotic, utopian, socialist fantasy of world equality disguised innocuously as a carbon tax.
