Surprise: Warmists Want Private Sector To Pony Up For Climate Change Redistribution Policy

How dare I and other Skeptics say that the “climate change” movement is all about far left Progressive (nice fascist) policies! We’re just crazy in thinking there’s a link

Private sector must pay more into $100bn global climate fund, says report
World Resources Institute advises businesses as well as governments to increase funding to enable poor countries to cut emissions and rebuild infrastructure

The global target of directing $100bn to poor countries to help them cope with climate change is likely to be missed unless private sector finance is ramped up significantly, a new analysis has found.

In other words, more fees and taxation on the private sector, pushed by people who aren’t giving their own money, and take lots and lots of fossil fueled trips with their own over-size carbon footprints.

Rich countries will also have to find more money from taxpayers to fund developing countries, enabling them to cut their greenhouse gas emissions and rebuild their infrastructure to adapt to the likely effects of global warming.

See? More taxes and fees. This is all just a money transfer scheme, as pushed by these “developing nations”, and, really, what have previous schemes accomplished? Most of these poor countries are still poor, are still 3rd world sh*tholes. But, the dictators seems to do very well. It also fits very well with the guilt Warmists feel for living a good life in 1st World nations.

The analysis, seen by the Guardian, is a critical part of the runup to the UN climate change conference, starting on 30 November in Paris. Poor countries were promised finance flows of $100bn a year from developed countries by 2020, as part of the deal reached at the climate summit in Copenhagen in 2009.

But finance has fallen well short of that target so far, and poor countries are concerned they will not receive the promised money. They are demanding that the target be reached, as a prerequisite for any agreement in Paris.

This is a great way for poor countries to extort money from countries that actually succeed.

Fantastic comment at the Guardian (say, has the Guardian pledged their own money, and have they divested from fossil fuels yet?)

If the threat from C02 is so dangerous, why isn’t the vast sums spent on conferences at 5 star venues, private jet travel, first class air tickets and huge convoys of limos used to fund research into scrubbing emissions from coal fired power stations, cars, planes etc. It seems that there is also a huge amount spent by climate scientists , swanning around the world doing research to prove that the climate is changing and the world is getting warmer. One has to question why they continue to do this, when we are constantly told that “the science is settled.” It would seem to be rather stupid and obtuse to scream hysterically that existing energy sources must be shut down and replaced with what is quaintly called “sustainable” energy, when the blindly obvious solution is to put these scientist chaps to work to find efficient ways to scrub C02 from emissions. Maybe though, it’s more fun and more financially rewarding to travel around, funded by tax payers saying the same thing over and over again. One suspects that mere pennies are being spent on scrubbing CO2 from emissions against the billions spent on climate research.

    What’s actually comical is that these so called poor countries are mostly run by despots who will just take the money given them and buy more cars, boats and planes and build a bigger mansion and stock more offshore bank accounts with money.

    Progressive really do live in la la land if they seriously think that just handing over money to despot rulers will in anyway reduce emmissions.

    In fact 90 percent of all Emissions comes from about 50 countries while the other 150 countries hardly produce any AGW footprint.

    Why don’t they just say they want to socialize the world….they might actually get more cooperation. I would love to see Somalia and african nations socialized if for no other reason then socialism is certainly better then what they have now.

    The Guardian Media Group has very y little invested in fossil fuels, low single digit percentage It has stated that they expect to be completely gone within 2 years
    Teach doesn’t think that HE should have to help any other human beings.
    Teach I know that math was never your fav or best subject BUT the carbon footprint left by people advocating against AGW is not a significant number compared to the amount of decrease that is being achieved.
    “One might suspect that mere pennies are being spent……”
    Teach did you even bother to check this comment that you chose to publish was at all accurate???
    In fact carbon capture and sequestration got about 2x as much as all Climate Change research

    LT the US and developed countries have made great strides since 1900, however, for a variety of reasons some other countries have not. In 1900 the life expectancy of a US male was only 46 years.
    It may well take another 100 years before some nations advance to where the US is now. Should we try to help them or just let those human beings do it on their own ?

    The “responsibility movement” (conservatives, libertarians, Republicans) refuse to hold polluters responsible because the polluters finance the “responsibility movement”. It’s not that hard to figure out.

    You insist that Negroes, Muslims, Mexicans and women act responsibly, but you give wealthy white men, who are doing more damage to the Earth than all the Negroes, Muslims, Mexicans and women combined, a total pass. In fact, the “responsibility movement” continues to throw trillions! of US dollars at the polluters every year!

    What does the white “responsibility movement” get in return for funneling of trillions of tax monies from hardworking Americans to their wealthy patrons? The promise that one day they’ll be rid of the demands from Negroes, Muslims, Mexicans and feminazis with their abortions.

    @John

    Im all for you selling everything you own and going overseas and helping them build windmills in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and other hospitable places. When you actually send me a post card from Afghanistan showing me that your building a windmill I will actually write your charity of choice a rather sizeable donation.

    Dude you do realize that there is roughly 1.5 billion dollars in grant money floating around the climate science departments. Divide that up by about 100 scientist and you find that the salaries of tenured professors pale in comparison to the grant money the are able to gobble up to the tune of at least a million or two million dollars per year…..if not way more depending upon your name.

    Additionally Hansen has published something like 14 books his climate science status has made him a millionaire…..Additionally their are private grants NOT accounted for by the us government which you so pointed out that tracks FED dollars.

    These private grants are even larger and much more lucrative and they are aimed at scientist to ensure the results needed so that these billionaire endowments can continue to make large sums of money.

    It baffles the mind how the AGW crowd tries to pretend this is all about science and the welfare of the world when in reality those doing the science are more concerned with how much money they can rake in each year……of course they have to toe the line in order to get the really big bucks from private donors.

    We insist that all people act responsibly. Including racists like you. As for the polluters….Yes the world is full of evil men.

    However Jeffery you have shrunk your world down to the USA and Conservatives. The rest of the world which does not consist of Evil white men but rather evil, blacks, hispanics, Asians, Muslims, and every other race under the sun gets a pass in your world…….

    Because your underlying communist assumption is that the USA must be torn down and destroyed before there can be peace on earth…….in your world peace and prosperity only occurs when the EVIL white man is destroyed.

    You racist bastard. Im dont with you….you are the most stupid, idiotic, moron Ive faced since the last progressive Ive debated…..your no longer worth my time you racist pig.

    Poor Liam,

    You can’t quit me and you know it! Arguing with conservatives always results in the conservative running away as their worldview is destroyed.

    But conservatives hardly insist that all people act responsibly, just as I pointed out.

    You support the US elite establishment because you fear Negroes, Muslims, women and Mexicans. Life was so much easier when white men ruled! You decry African despots but they’re hardly the world’s most pressing problem.

    The Western world and our global corporations have caused the atmospheric CO2 to jump to 400 ppm and its increasing steadily. Recently, the Chinese and Indians with their billions of citizens have started adding to the problem. Unfortunately, the CO2 that Europe, America and China dump into atmosphere doesn’t just hover over OUR cities but redistributes all over the globe, leading to warming, known as global warming. See the connection?

    So yes, the Western world and our corporations are mostly responsible for global warming.

    And yes, the Western world and our corporations were mostly responsible for the global economic meltdown in 2007. The American taxpayers shouldered that responsibility, not the perps.

    Don’t let him bother you Liam. He may indeed be stupid, idiotic and racist or simply misinformed, bigoted and proud of it.

    But for the entertainment value, Jeffery is priceless.

    Contrary to the alarmunists scare tactics, CO2 is not some giant climate control knob in the sky. There’s no proof the warming that has subsided was anything but normal- normal being that there is no normal. CO2 has gone from about 300ppm to 400ppm in a century. That’s like placing ten extra people in Michigan stadium. (capacity, about 100,000). How scary!

  9. Jeffery says:

    j,

    Great math skills there, slick. 400/300 = 1.33 while 100,010/100,000 = 1.0001

    That’s a 33% increase vs a 0.01% increase.

    So it would be like adding 33,333 people to Michigan Stadium, which would cause it to collapse.
