UN IPCC official on Climate Change: A scam to steal from the rich to give to the poor

Well, the cat’s out of the bag now. We all knew that the guys who couldn’t tell us if it’s going to rain tomorrow were full of it when it came to their dire warnings of impending disaster due to “climate change”. All the hysteria had but one goal – wealth and resource redistribution.

If you needed any more evidence that the entire theory of manmade global warming was a scheme to redistribute wealth you got it Sunday when a leading member of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change told a German news outlet, “[W]e redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”

UN IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chair of IPCC Working Group III and lead author of the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report, is one of the most prominent cheerleaders for radical reductions in carbon emissions. Here’s what he had to say about the IPCC’s goals:

One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.

Yes, let us all free ourselves from the illusion that climate policy is environmental policy. “Hide the decline” was merely the beginning of their mendacity.:  Global warming alarmism never had anything to do with environmentalism; it is, and always was, about control.

If global emission rights are distributed, on a per capita basis, then Africa will be the big winner, and huge amounts of money will flow there.

From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

“Climate change” is just another scam in the never-ending liberal quest for communism. Social Justice was their last big hurrah, and when it fell flat they latched onto the next convenient scheme. Marxists like Mugabe need a never-ending supply of Other People’s Money and what better way to deliver it than by guilting rich nations into “saving the planet”.:  At the same time the intellectual elites can dictate how we live our lives.:  Control goes hand-in-hand with Marxism.

And of course as the money flows from here to there the UN will dip their greasy fingers into the stream to skim off a nice little sinecure for themselves. Remember Oil for Food? UN kleptocrats stole millions. Well, those IPCC conferences in exotic locales don’t come cheap. Somebody’s gotta pay, and while they’re grifting on behalf of Africa they may as well line their own pockets too.

It’s the ethanol boondoggle on a global scale. The only planet they’re interested in saving is the one inside their pocketbooks.
