Famine: A Policy Fabricated in London

Famine has never risen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting by improper means, to remedy the inconvenience of dearth.
— Adam Smith about the Bengal famine.

With the global financial system at a historic moment of total collapse, only depopulation of the most efficient means is the way a financier oligarchy can respond. Today, that would mean a thermonuclear war. However the policy of reducing our numbers on this planet has been the model of the British empire throughout history and wherever they are, genocide will follow. Today there are 12 million people at risk of starvation in the horn of Africa, but that threat is in no way localized, as this years global grain harvest was exactly half of what our current 7 billion population, needs to survive. 1 It is not just a question of halting the genocide of thermonuclear war, the genocide has already begun, and London’s puppet in the white house is holding humanity to the grindstone for the benefit of an empire system. All discussion of overpopulation, or global warming causing uncontrollable weather changes are a lie. As we know, there is nothing natural about man allowing himself to die in mass numbers. The natural tendency of man is to create and discover the solutions to all obstacles that he will ever encounter. To give up that view of man, would be forfeiting the human race to pure evil.

The Weather is in our Control

The policy of scaling back food production in the name of stabilization of global markets, is a deliberate starvation policy, but what is often cited as not deliberate and out of mankind’s control is the process of severe and unpredictable weather. It is true that weather has grave effects on the supply of food, whether it be too much water, not enough of it, temperatures that drop too low or rise too high, pests and of course; the geopolitical climate. However when we already know that there are unforeseen events that will effect the food supply we can develop the system in the immediate to deal with that. For instance even ancient cultures knew to expect periodic droughts or floods and would take precautions to the best of their ability. The people of Egypt always expected the Nile to flood and even came to rely on it as a source of irrigation.

Or take the case of our united states. Can you imagine the people of Texas dying of mass starvation due to the severe droughts they have experienced over the past year? Would you ever expect Texans to be seen wandering the desert as thin as skeletons, desperate to find something to eat? Wherever there is a crises in one state of the US, another state can use railroad or air lift in order to bring in the necessary supplies, to deal with the shortage. This is not a long term plan for the development of our country, but it is a capability of defense against severe weather that we still have, due to the work of those who came before us. That kind of preparation is necessary and basic but more of a last line of defense than the first.

Our first line of defense must be to understand those processes themselves that are the cause of such anomalies in the weather and learn to fill in those parts of the process that nature won’t supply. But a society where mankind is treated like just another animal, where those that are weaker than the strongest beast will be expected to die, is one in which human beings are not allowed access to such knowledge.That is precisely what the British empire has done, is doing and will do to the human race unless stopped.

El Niño as a Weapon of Mass Destruction

Lets take a closer look at how this operates. During the great famines that occurred between 1876 and 1906, several nations on three continents were affected. Although the British Empire which had dominion over most of these areas did not keep records of the number of deaths due to famine, estimates put the number at anywhere between 32 and 61 million people globally.2 Putting that in the light of world wars, it amounts to as great as the number of casualties of WWII including disease related deaths and victims of the Holocaust. Although the British empire was and is brutal, how could as much as 60 million people possibly have been wiped out so quickly?

What we know today, and very well could have known at the time, is that three very strong El Niño events took place between 1876 and 1906. The effect was drought that decimated the food supply of several countries extending from Brazil over to China, down to India and as far west as Egypt and the Magreb. However as mentioned earlier, human civilizations were aware of disturbances in the supply of food for thousands of years, and had the ability to take certain precautions which included reserves and transport of food. In the age of modern transport of rail and telegraph communication, why would the death toll amount to such an ungodly amount?

We will shed more light on this with a look at the British in India in this period, although this does not even begin to give the whole picture, of the unnecessary and brutal deaths that occurred around the world and still continue to this day.

The British in Madras

The decade in the lead up to 1876 saw a sharp decline in rainfall in the Madras region of India. Madras which today is called Chennai, gets its rain usually from north-east monsoon winds which at the time were its only source of water reserve replenishment for irrigation.The region which usually experienced 27.6 inches of rain each year only recorded 6.3 inches in 1876. As massive failures in crops were affected prices rose exorbitantly high due to the wild speculation in food commodities pricing, which London allowed to run rampant. Grain riots ensued among a hungry population, which began feeding on nothing more than roots. Due to the free market dominant system of the British, any price instability in any one part of the system would be a determinant in the whole and as a result of such practices, the world sank into a Great Depression which the poor colonial populations took the brunt of. Regardless of the surplus of rice and wheat in the years leading up to the drought in India, much of its surplus was exported to England. In the years 1877 and 1878, 6.7 million cwt (hundred weight tons) of wheat were exported to Europe by India’s grain merchants at the same time as bodies were dropping in the streets.

The central government of India, run under Queen Victoria’s favorite poet Lord Lytton who was described as as insane opium addict with megalomania, a term sometimes used to describe narcissistic personality disorder. Lytton was a fitting personality for the empire to employ in overseeing the deaths of millions of Indians. He chose to argue in front of the legislative council in 1877, that the Indian population, ”has a tendency to increase more rapidly than the food it raises from the soil”

In a later Parliamentary Famine Commission in 1881 finance minister Evelyn Baring would make this view pointedly clear by saying:

“Every benevolent attempt made to mitigate the effects of famine and defective sanitation serves but to enhance the evils resulting from overpopulation.”

The same 1881 report drew the conclusion that:

“80% of the famine mortality were drawn from the poorest 20% of the population, and if such deaths were prevented this stratum of the population would still be unable to adopt prudential restraint. Thus, if the government spent more of its revenue on famine relief, an even larger proportion of the population would become penurious”

To illustrate the intention to withdraw and prevent aid, take the case of Lord Temple who in 1873 responded to a drought in the Bengal and Bihar region of India, by bringing in one million tons of rice from Burma. This and a so called “gratuitous dole” alleviated the crises in the immediate and according to official records, there were only three deaths as a result of starvation. Would this become a model for the British alleviating crises brought on by drought? No one should be so naive. India under Lord Lytton adhered to the strict guidance of Adam Smith’s invisible hand, who said in 1770 as a response to the Bengal famine that,

“famine has never risen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting by improper means, to remedy the inconvenience of dearth.”

Temple came under vicious attack from London for allowing:

“the scale of wages paid at relief works to be determined by the daily food needs of the laborer and the prevailing food prices in the market rather than by the amount that the government could afford to spend for that purpose.”

The London Economist magazine attacked Temple in its July 1874 edition for allowing Indians to believe that

“ It is the duty of the government to keep them alive…”

Temple whose career was nearly destroyed, soon completely changed his tune and carried out the task of making relief as ineffective as possible. Temple’s brief from the Council of India included the following

“…the task of saving life irrespective of cost, is one which is beyond our power to undertake. The embarrassment of debt and weight of taxation consequent on the expense thereby involved would soon become more fatal than the famine itself.”

Temple implemented the requirement of forcing applicants for relief, to travel great distances on foot to dormitory camps, where they were forced into coolie labor upon promise of food. Indians had to prove they were nearly incapacitated to carry out any labor in order to receive relief without being forced into heavy labor. The idea that labor camps were intended to provide any sort of relief was a lie, as the laborers were given less to eat then the diet for prisoners in the Nazi Buchenwald concentration camp. With this effective means of killing through a slow starvation process came disease such as malaria, bubonic plague, dysentery, smallpox and cholera.

This was not localized to Madras or even India itself, these famines were global. The 1876-77 famine was only the first of successive famines in a roughly 25 year period. In 1889-91 in addition to India, famine affected several countries including Korea, Brazil, Russia, Vietnam, New Caledonia, Ethiopia and Sudan where 1/3 of the population perished. From 1896-1902 the monsoons failed in the tropics again resulting in another deadly string of famines.

El Niño: Friend or Foe?

Put the power of this seemingly natural event into perspective. In the aftermath of the March 11, 2011 Japan Earthquake, Lyndon LaRouche emphasized that the power that was being unleashed by the ring of fire, was greater than any atomic weapon that could be set off on this planet.3 El Niño is another example of the great forces that can be unleashed on earth. The British empire in effect took one of those great forces of nature and turned it against us. For instance Mike Davis, Author of Late Victorian Holocausts: El Nino Famines and the Making of the Third World, describes the effect of the great famine in one area of China to that effect:

“..the famine in Taiyuan prefecture was almost an extinction event with only 5 percent of the population reported still alive in 1879. Despite heavy immigration from nearby provinces during the 1880s, Shanxi–decimated as if by modern nuclear war– did not regain it’s 1875 population until 1953.”

The British empire treats severe weather, as an opportunity to purge the planet of lives which they see as not worthy of existence. Conversely, when man gains a greater understanding of the forces of our universe, what’s currently a threat to human existence could potentially be a great friend.Those same mysterious forces driving weather could be the windows through which we as mankind, can gain a greater understand of the universe we live in. As has been discussed for several months on LPACTV’s Mastering Forces of Nature page there are processes occurring all around us, including those generated from other galaxies which we cannot perceive. Human beings fail to understand these processes based on their simple interpretations of their sense perceptions. However given that much of what takes place is insensible to human beings, we rely on other forms of instrumentation and through the human mind, gain a greater understanding of the universe.

For instance the process called El Niño may be described as an anomalous warming of surface water in the eastern equatorial Pacific, with huge affects on changes in the weather. However this is just an effect. At this point we still don’t know what the cause of this process is and we don’t even know when one has begun until we’ve seen its effect. Also what causes the anomalous warming of the ocean surface to occur as quickly as it does? Could this merely be the work of solar energy? Does the little we still don’t know about what’s going on inside the earth throwing us for a loop when it comes to weather? It’s as if we are in the footsteps of an invisible giant.

Making Friends with Severe Weather

Looking for the cause of such a phenomenon requires man to change his identity from being a earth dwelling slave to his senses, to an extraterrestrial being whose mind is the center of understanding of his surroundings.

On the North American continent, we see many of the imbalances that occur on other continents such as Africa, Australia and Asia; too much water in one portion of the continent, not enough in another part. Although these imbalances are seemingly constant on a short span of history, multitudes of weather anomalies have been seen in the past year such as increase in snowfall, flooding, tornadoes and hurricanes that are not yet explicable. Earlier in 2011 in a production titled, To Be or Not to Be: A Galactic Question, Cody Jones discusses the potential for mankind’s extinction on this planet. There is a lot that we don’t know with certainty, but the point is human life on this planet must be organized to come to understand these things very quickly, because the greatest threat to our existence is the ignorance of the universe we inhabit.

The North American Water and Power Alliance is one such step to understanding our universe which must be taken immediately. Although we would be dealing with challenges in the immediate, such as flood prevention, and a steady and reliable source of irrigation, we’re mastering the forces of a large portion of our entire hemisphere. Given that El Niño is a giant process that effects multiple continents, something on the scale of several NAWAPAs in several countries, would be a major step in understanding what are intercontinental and what we might find to be inter-galactic processes. 4

What we do know is if we are prostrate as a society at the whim of the oligarchical tendency, the great famines will seem as nothing compared to what we’ll face as mysterious forces from locations that are currently beyond our grasp.

Conclusion

Just as the British empire controlled and suppressed any of the necessary knowledge and organization to keep people alive, today the same attack on humanity continues. Not only do the worst of all possible famines continue to threaten lives across the globe, but even the most advanced capabilities we have to guard against it are being shut down by the Obama administration. 5 If anyone really understands the history of the British empire, they know that it is imperative that the common “rabble” not be allowed real knowledge of anything greater than their animal existence. There should be no confusion about what we are dealing with in our current American president. Barack Obama is like a colonial master in the tradition of Lord Lytton, who is the American version of the Roman Emperor Nero. The push for thermonuclear war by Obama, with Russia and China is being carried out on behalf of a desperately dying British empire. It is not just a matter of will it happen, the genocide is already happening and it will only get worse unless stopped. It’s time for Americans to fight like hell not for our own safety, but for a human civilization which is gravely threatened. We owe the millions of victims of the British empire’s funeral pyre the removal of Barack Obama from the presidency.

Plans for compulsory sterilization, abortion

A stunning Planned Parenthood document that includes radical ideas such as compulsory abortion and sterilization; special “permits” to have children; penalizing parents; and encouraging homosexuality dovetails with some Obamacare mandates, according to a former Planned Parenthood director.

Abby Johnson, who left her position after helping with an abortion and writing about her experience in “unPLANNED”, said the Jaffe document has been around for 40 years but has been virtually ignored.

“When I worked at Planned Parenthood, there was something that we were not allowed to talk about,” Johnson said. “If we didn’t talk about it, then maybe no one else would either. It was called the Jaffe Memo.

The document is a memorandum about population control to Population Council President Bernard Berelson from Frederick S. Jaffe, vice president of Planned Parenthood.

It suggests fertility control agents in the water supply; applying a “substantial marriage tax” as well as a “child tax”; taxing married couples more than singles; eliminating maternity leaves or benefits; removing child care facilities and then requiring women to work; compulsory abortion and sterilizations; and a “stock certificate type permit for children.”

Johnson explained that in 1969, the federal government asked Planned Parenthood to offer ideas to address overpopulation.”

“They did just that,” she said. “What is in the memo as a ‘solution’ to overpopulation is astonishing. And, I’m sorry to say, it looks like the Jaffe memo is starting to show its face in our culture.”

She said she found out something during her current pregnancy that spurred her to try to bring attention to Jaffe’s work.

She said she found out that not only did her insurance plan exclude maternity coverage, she could not find any private insurance companies offering such coverage.

Their answers were not only alike but alarming, she said.

After calling 18 insurance companies, each gave her the same reply: “When Obama enacted his ‘health care reform,’ he mandated that maternity coverage not be available to any private insurance company.”

This made Johnson question if Obamacare is part of the agenda to discourage pregnancy, an agenda that her former employer apparently tried to conceal for decades.

The memo includes:

  • Social Constraints: 1) Restructure Family – postpone or avoid marriage, alter image of ideal family size; 2) Compulsory education of children; 3) Encourage increased homosexuality; 4) Educate for family limitation; 5) Fertility control agents in water supply; 6) Encourage women to work
  • Economic Deterrents: 1) Modify tax policies – substantial marriage tax, child tax, tax married more than single, remove parents tax exemption, additional taxes on parents with more than 1 or 2 children in school; 2) Reduce/eliminate paid maternity leave or benefits; 3) Reduce/eliminate children’s or family allowances; 4) Bonuses for delayed marriage and greater child-spacing; 5) Pensions for women of 45 with less than N children; 6) Eliminate welfare payments after first 2 children; 7) Chronic depression; 8) Require women to work and provide few child care facilities; 9) Limit/eliminate public-financed medical care, scholarships, housing, loans and subsidies to families with more than N children
  • Social Controls: 1) Compulsory abortion of out-of-wedlock pregnancies; 2) Compulsory sterilization of all who have two children except for a few who would be allowed three; 3) Confine childbearing to only a limited number of adults; 4) Stock certificate type permits for children; 5) Housing policies – discouragement of private home ownership, stop awarding public housing based on family size; 6) Payments to encourage sterilization; 7) Payments to encourage contraception; 8) Payments to encourage abortion; 9) Abortion and sterilization on demand; 10) Allow certain contraceptives to be distributed non-medically; 11) Improve contraceptive technology; 12) Make contraception truly available and accessible to all; 13) Improve maternal health care, with family planning a core element.

Dec 2008 Prediction – Federal Reserve sets stage for Weimar-style Hyperinflation


The Federal Reserve has bluntly refused a request by
a major US financial news service to disclose the recipients of more
than $2 trillion of emergency loans from US taxpayers and to reveal the
assets the central bank is accepting as collateral. Their lawyers
resorted to the bizarre argument that they did so to protect ‘trade
secrets.Is the secret that the US financial system is de facto
bankrupt? The latest Fed move is further indication of the degree of
panic and lack of clear strategy within the highest ranks of the US
financial institutions. Unprecedented Federal Reserve expansion of the
Monetary Base in recent weeks sets the stage for a future Weimar-style
hyperinflation perhaps before 2010

On November 7 Bloomberg filed suit under the US
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requesting details about the terms of
eleven new Federal Reserve lending programs created during the
deepening financial crisis.

The Fed responded on December 8 claiming its
allowed to withhold internal memos as well as information about ‘trade
secretsand ‘commercial information.The central bank did confirm
that a records search found 231 pages of documents pertaining to the
requests.

The Bernanke Fed in recent weeks has stepped in to
take a role that was the original purpose of the Treasurys $700
billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). The difference between a
Fed bailout of troubled financial institutions and a Treasury bailout
is that central bank loans do not have the oversight safeguards that
Congress imposed upon the TARP. Perhaps those are the ‘trade secrets
the hapless Fed Chairman,Ben Bernanke, is so jealously guarding from
the public.

Coming hyperinflation?

The total of such emergency Fed lending exceeded $2
trillion on Nov. 6. It had risen by an astonishing 138 percent, or
$1.23 trillion, in the 12 weeks since Sept. 14, when central bank
governors relaxed collateral standards to accept securities that
weren’t rated AAA. They did so knowing that on the following day a
dramatic shock to the financial system would occur because they, in
concert with the Bush Administration, had decided to let it occur.

On September 15 Bernanke, New York Federal Reserve
President, Tim Geithner, the new Obama Treasury Secretary-designate,
along with the Bush Administration, agreed to let the fourth largest
investment bank, Lehman Brothers, go bankrupt, defaulting on untold
billions worth of derivatives and other obligations held by investors
around the world. That event, as is now widely accepted, triggered a
global systemic financial panic as it was no longer clear to anyone
what standards the US Government was using to decide which institutions
were ‘too big to failand which not. Since then the US Treasury
Secretary has reversed his policies on bank bailouts repeatedly leading
many to believe Henry Paulson and the Washington Administration along
with the Fed have lost control.

In response to the deepening crisis, the Bernanke
Fed has decided to expand what is technically called the Monetary Base,
defined as total bank reserves plus cash in circulation, the basis for
potential further high-powered bank lending into the economy. Since the
Lehman Bros. default, this money expansion rose dramatically by end
October at a year-year rate of growth of 38%, has been without
precedent in the 95 year history of the Federal Reserve since its
creation in 1913. The previous high growth rate, according to US
Federal Reserve data, was 28% in September 1939, as the US was building
up industry for the evolving war in Europe.

By the first week of December, that expansion of the
monetary base had jumped to a staggering 76% rate in just 3 months. It
has gone from $836 billion in December 2007 when the crisis appeared
contained, to $1,479 billion in December 2008, an explosion of 76%
year-on-year. Moreover, until September 2008, the month of the Lehman
Brothers collapse, the Federal Reserve had held the expansion of the
Monetary Base virtually flat. The 76% expansion has almost entirely
taken place within the past three months, which implies an annualized
expansion rate of more than 300%.

Despite this, banks do not lend further, meaning the
US economy is in a depression free-fall of a scale not seen since the
1930s. Banks do not lend in large part because under Basle BIS lending
rules, they must set aside 8% of their capital against the value of any
new commercial loans. Yet the banks have no idea how much of the
mortgage and other troubled securities they own are likely to default
in the coming months, forcing them to raise huge new sums of capital to
remain solvent. Its far saferas they reason to pass on their toxic
waste assets to the Fed in return for earning interest on the acquired
Treasury paper they now hold. Bank lending is risky in a depression.

Hence the banks exchange $2 trillion of presumed
toxic waste securities consisting of Asset-Backed Securities in
sub-prime mortgages, stocks and other high-risk credits in exchange for
Federal Reserve cash and US Treasury bonds or other Government
securities rated (still) AAA, i.e. risk-free. The result is that the
Federal Reserve is holding some $2 trillion in largely junk paper from
the financial system. Borrowers include Lehman Brothers, Citigroup and
JPMorgan Chase, the USs largest bank by assets. Banks oppose any
release of information because that might signal ‘weaknessand spur
short-selling or a run by depositors.

Making the situation even more drastic is the
banking model used first by US banks beginning in the late 1970s for
raising deposits, namely the acquiring of ‘wholesale depositsby
borrowing from other banks on the overnight interbank market. The
collapse in confidence since the Lehman Bros. default is so extreme
that no bank anywhere, dares trust any other bank enough to borrow.
That leaves only traditional retail deposits from private and corporate
savings or checking accounts.

To replace wholesale deposits with retail deposits
is a process that in the best of times will take years, not weeks.
Understandably, the Federal Reserve does not want to discuss this. That
is clearly also behind their blunt refusal to reveal the nature of
their $2 trillion assets acquired from member banks and other financial
institutions. Simply put, were the Fed to reveal to the public
precisely what ‘collateralthey held from the banks, the public would
know the potential losses that the government may take.

Congress is demanding more transparency from the
Federal Reserve and US Treasury on its bailout lending. On December 10
in Congressional hearings by the House Financial Services Committee,
Representative David Scott, a Georgia Democrat, said Americans had
‘been bamboozled,slang for defrauded.

Hiccups and Hurricanes

Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke and Treasury Secretary
Henry Paulson said in September they would meet congressional demands
for transparency in a $700 billion bailout of the banking system. The
Freedom of Information Act obliges federal agencies to make government
documents available to the press and public.

In early December the Congress oversight agency,
GAO, issued its first mandated review of the lending of the US
Treasurys $700 billion TARP program (Troubled Asset Relief Program).
The review noted that in 30 days since the program began, Henry
Paulsons office had handed out $150 billion of taxpayer money to
financial institutions with no effective accountability of how the
money is being used. It seems Henry Paulsons Treasury has indeed
thrown a giant ‘tarpover the entire taxpayer bailout.

Further adding to the troubles in the worlds former
financial Mecca, the US Congress, acting on largely ideological
grounds, shocked the financial system when it refused to give even a
meager $14 billion emergency loan to the Big Three automakers-General
Motors, Chrysler and Ford.

While it is likely that the Treasury will extend
emergency credit to the companies until January 20 or until the newly
elected Congress can consider a new plan, the prospect of a
chain-reaction bankruptcy collapse of the three giant companies is very
near. What is being left out of the debate is that those three
companies account for a combined 25% of all US corporate bonds
outstanding. They are held by private pension funds, mutual funds,
banks and others. If the auto parts suppliers of the Big Three are
included, an estimated $1 trillion of corporate bonds are now at risk
of chain-reaction default. Such a bankruptcy failure could trigger a
financial catastrophe which would make what has happened since Lehman
Bros. appear as a mere hiccup in a hurricane.

As well, the Federal Reserves panic actions since
September, by their explosive expansion of the monetary base, has set
the stage for a Zimbabwe-style hyperinflation. The new money is not
being sterilizedby offsetting actions by the Fed, a highly unusual
move indicating their desperation. Prior to September the Feds
infusions of money were sterilized, making the potential inflation
effect ‘neutral.’

Defining a Very Great Depression

That means once banks begin finally to lend again,
perhaps in a year or so, that will flood the US economy with liquidity
in the midst of a deflationary depression. At that point or perhaps
well before, the dollar will collapse as foreign holders of US Treasury
bonds and other assets run. That will not be pleasant as the result
would be a sharp appreciation in the Euro and a crippling effect on
exports in Germany and elsewhere should the nations of the EU and other
non-dollar countries such as Russia, OPEC members and, above all, China
not have arranged a new zone of stabilization apart from the dollar.

The world faces the greatest financial and economic
challenges in history in coming months. The incoming Obama
Administration faces a choice of literally nationalizing the credit
system to insure a flow of credit to the real economy over the next 5
to 10 years, or face an economic Armageddon that will make the 1930s
appear a mild recession by comparison.

Leaving aside what appears to have been blatant
political manipulation by the present US Administration of key economic
data prior to the November election in a vain attempt to downplay the
scale of the economic crisis in progress, the figures are
unprecedented. For the week ended December 6 initial jobless claims
rose to the highest level since November 1982. More than four million
workers remained on unemployment, also the most since 1982 and in
November US companies cut jobs at the fastest rate in 34 years. Some
1,900,000 US jobs have vanished so far in 2008.

As a matter of relevance, 1982, for those with long
memories, was the depth of what was then called the Volcker Recession.
Paul Volcker, a Chase Manhattan appendage of the Rockefeller family,
had been brought down from New York to apply his interest rate shock
therapyto the US economy in order as he put it, ‘to squeeze inflation
out of the economy.He squeezed far more as the economy went into
severe recession, and his high interest rate policy detonated what came
to be called the Third World Debt Crisis. The same Paul Volcker has
just been named by Barack Obama as chairman-designate of the newly
formed Presidents Economic Recovery Advisory Board, hardly grounds for
cheer.

The present economic collapse across the United
States is driven by the collapse of the $3 trillion market for
high-risk sub-prime and Alt-A home mortgages. Fed Chairman Bernanke is
on record stating that the worst should be over by end of December.
Nothing could be farther from the truth, as he well knows. The same
Bernanke stated in October 2005 that there was ‘no housing bubble to go
bust.So much for the predictive quality of that Princeton economist.
The widely-used S&P Schiller-Case US National Home Price Index
showed a 17% year-year drop in the third Quarter, trend rising. By some
estimates it will take another five to seven years to see US home
prices reach bottom. In 2009 as interest rate resets on some $1
trillion worth of Alt-A US home mortgages begin to kick in, the rate of
home abandonments and foreclosures will explode. Little in any of the
so-called mortgage amelioration programs offered to date reach the vast
majority affected. That process in turn will accelerate as millions of
Americans lose their jobs in the coming months.

John Williams of the widely-respected Shadow
Government Statistics report, recently published a definition of
Depression, a term that was deliberately dropped after World War II
from the economic lexicon as an event not repeatable. Since then all
downturns have been termed ‘recessions.Williams explained to me that
some years ago he went to great lengths interviewing the respective US
economic authorities at the Commerce Departments Bureau of Economic
Analysis and at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), as
well as numerous private sector economists, to come up with a more
precise definition of ‘recession,’depressionand ‘great depression.’
His is pretty much the only attempt to give a more precise definition
to these terms.

What he came up with was first the official NBER
definition of recession: Two or more consecutive quarters of
contracting real GDP, or measures of payroll employment and industrial
production. A depression is a recession in which the peak-to-bottom
growth contraction is greater than 10% of the GDP. A Great Depression
is one in which the peak-to-bottom contraction, according to Williams,
exceeds 25% of GDP.

In the period from August 1929 until he left office
President Herbert Hoover oversaw a 43-month long contraction of the US
economy of 33%. Barack Obama looks set to break that record, to preside
over what historians could likely call the Very Great Depression of
2008-2014, unless he finds a new cast of financial advisers before
Inauguration Day, January 20. Required are not recycled New York Fed
presidents, Paul Volckers or Larry Summers types. Needed is a radically
new strategy to put virtually the entire United States economy into
some form of an emergency ‘Chapter 11bankruptcy reorganization where
banks take write-offs of up to 90% on their toxic assets, that, in
order to save the real economy for the American population and the rest
of the world. Paper money can be shredded easily. Not human lives. In
the process it might be time for Congress to consider retaking the
Federal Reserve into the Federal Government as the Constitution
originally specified, and make the entire process easier for all. If
this sounds extreme, perhaps revisit this article in six months again.

Iraq Withdrawal is Smokescreen: Confronting Obama’s Hypocrisy

Announcing the Iraq war was ended, Barack Obama told US troops on 14 December 2011, “The United States military is the finest fighting force in the history of the world.”

What he didn’t say is that since 1945 the US military has been directly responsible for the deaths of over 10 million people and that America has in that time overthrown 50 governments, including democracies, and intervened in at least 30 more.

John Pilger has something to say about that.

Canada to withdraw from Kyoto Protocol

OTTAWA — Canada is to formally withdraw from the Kyoto accord on climate change, Environment Minister Peter Kent said Monday.

“The Kyoto Protocol does not represent the path forward for Canada,” Kent told a news conference in the foyer of the House of Commons, after his return from an international climate-change summit in Durban, South Africa.

“It’s now clear that Kyoto is not the path forward for a global solution to climate change. If anything, it’s an impediment.” Canada will formally withdraw from the Kyoto accord on climate change, Environment Minister Peter Kent said Monday.

“We are invoking Canada’s legal right to formally withdraw from Kyoto.”

The home of scams and hoaxes aka BBC feels the commercial chill of ‘fake’ documentary

 Revelation that key scenes from Frozen Planet were filmed in a zoo has threatened one of the corporation’s prized products, says Ian Burrell

The BBC moved yesterday to protect one of its most valuable international brands amid claims that scenes shown on Sir David Attenborough’s acclaimed series Frozen Planet were filmed in a Dutch animal park and not in the wild.

BBC accused of routine ‘fakery’ in wildlife documentaries

The BBC is accused of routinely faking footage in wildlife documentaries, by using studio sets, sound effects and tame animals to portray creatures in the wild.

Each episode of Frozen Planet contained a final section explaining how images were captured although no mention was made of the polar bear giving birth in a specially constructed den in a zoo.

The majority of leftists/liberals and radical
green organizations claim that global warming is “accelerating.”
As the below charts reveal, that claim is without empirical
merit – simply stated, the empirical evidence does not lie.
Over the last 15 years the evidence shows a decelerating
pattern to the point of actual global cooling.

Orwelian State Now! U.K. Graduates Made to ‘Stack Shelves’ for Free

BBC, December 13 2011

A graduate is taking legal action against the government over a scheme which she says forces people to do unpaid work.

Cait Reilly, a University of Birmingham geology graduate, is currently trying to find work in the museum sector.

The 22-year-old said she had to work for free at a Poundland store for two weeks or risk losing her benefits.

She is seeking a judicial review. Poundland said the scheme is operated in partnership with the government.

The End of Sovereignty – Europe Will Move On Despite Cameron’s Veto

The end of sovereignty is here folks. If you didn’t know I’ll spell it out for you.

The “tough talks and negotiations” are just an act. They want to convince you that they’re worth your tax money. They meet up like old school friends have a great time and use “advisors” to write a few lines to say to you when the cameras are watching.

All policies and laws are made up elsewherde by the elitists, and handed over to your beloved leaders to pass through parliaments.

Read the following lines and take a look at the links below, they just show that sovereignty is a thing of the past.

Europe’s leaders have returned home to their respective countries with the continent facing a future it didn’t predict and didn’t want.

David Cameron has arrived back in London and will now have to face his own party and parliament next week. He won’t get an easy ride from the latter.

Europe wants Britain to be a part of it. Europeans can’t understand why they steadfastly and repeatedly refuse to be so.

But Europe will accept Mr Cameron’s decision and move on regardless.

The German weekly news magazine Der Spiegel carried the gloating headline “Bye, Bye Britain”. Source:  Yahoo News

Cops target climate-sceptic bloggers in three countries

Hardware seized in UK, feds request evidence in America

The Green Police are presumed not to be involved:

Police have targeted at least four climate bloggers in three countries, with constabulary taking computers and networking equipment from a science blogger in the UK.

Roger Tattersall, aka “Tallbloke”, a Digital Content Manager at the University of Leeds, posted that six police officers identifying themselves as being from Norfolk Police and the Metropolitan force entered his home at midnight and took away two laptops and a router.

Norfolk Constabulary told us in a written statement that “Norfolk Constabulary executed a search warrant yesterday (Wednesday 14 December) in West Yorkshire and seized computers. No one was arrested. This is one line of enquiry in a Norfolk Constabulary investigation which started in 2009.”

That’s a reference to the “Climategate” investigation by Norfolk police into the release of emails (Right Click>Save As PDF file of the Climategate Emails), raw data and computer code from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, which two years on has yet to yield any results. A second batch of emails from the CRU including a large encrypted container was distributed last month. Amongst the recipients were Tattersall and Jeff Id of the Air Vent.

Norfolk Police told Tattersall they will clone the seized drives and return them.

Last week WordPress hosting site Automattic, based in San Francisco, notified several climate skeptics including Tattersall, Id and Canadians Steve McIntyre (Climate Audit) and Donna Laframboise (No Consensus) that the US Department of Justice Criminal Division had requested evidence for the period in November when the second batch of emails were uploaded.

We asked the Met for a statement but they referred us to Norfolk.

The Norfolk Police force and its computer forensic contractors have also helped the UEA with its internal enquiries – as you can read here

p787-8: Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock.

p838: In today’s world, however, the number of children in a family is a matter of profound public concern. The law regulates other highly personal matters. For example, no one may lawfully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children?

p796: One way to carry out this disapproval might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption—especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone. If a single mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for it. Adoption proceedings probably should remain more difficult for single people than for married couples, in recognition of the Continue reading →

UN Climate Draft Text Demands ‘New International Climate Court’ to compel reparations for ‘climate debt’ — Also seeks ‘rights of Mother Earth’ & 2C° drop in global temps

Special to Climate Depot – Lord Christopher Monckton reports from UN Climate Summit

Durban: what the media are not telling you ..

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley in Durban, South Africa

DURBAN, South Africa — “No high hopes for Durban.” “Binding treaty unlikely.” “No deal this year.” Thus ran the headlines. The profiteering UN bureaucrats here think otherwise. Their plans to establish a world government paid for by the West on the pretext of dealing with the non-problem of “global warming” are now well in hand. As usual, the mainstream media have simply not reported what is in the draft text which the 194 states parties to the UN framework convention on climate change are being asked to approve.

Behind the scenes, throughout the year since Cancun, the now-permanent bureaucrats who have made highly-profitable careers out of what they lovingly call “the process” have been beavering away at what is now a 138-page document. Its catchy title is “Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-Term Cooperative Action Under the Convention — Update of the amalgamation of draft texts in preparation of [one imagines they mean ‘for’] a comprehensive and balanced outcome to be presented to the Conference of the Parties for adoption at its seventeenth session: note by the Chair.” In plain English, these are the conclusions the bureaucracy wants.

The contents of this document, turgidly drafted with all the UN’s skill at what the former head of its documentation center used to call “transparent impenetrability”, are not just off the wall – they are lunatic.

Main points:

  • Ø A new International Climate Court will have the power to compel Western nations to pay ever-larger sums to third-world countries in the name of making reparation for supposed “climate debt”. The Court will have no power over third-world countries. Here and throughout the draft, the West is the sole target. “The process” is now irredeemably anti-Western.
  • Ø “Rights of Mother Earth”: The draft, which seems to have been written by feeble-minded green activists and environmental extremists, talks of “The recognition and defence of the rights of Mother Earth to ensure harmony between humanity and nature”. Also, “there will be no commodification [whatever that may be: it is not in the dictionary and does not deserve to be] of the functions of nature, therefore no carbon market will be developed with that purpose”.
  • Ø “Right to survive”: The draft childishly asserts that “The rights of some Parties to survive are threatened by the adverse impacts of climate change, including sea level rise.” At 2 inches per century, according to eight years’ data from the Envisat satellite? Oh, come off it! The Jason 2 satellite, the new kid on the block, shows that sea-level has actually dropped over the past three years.
  • Ø War and the maintenance of defence forces and equipment are to cease – just like that – because they contribute to climate change. There are other reasons why war ought to cease, but the draft does not mention them.
  • Ø A new global temperature target will aim, Canute-like, to limit “global warming” to as little as 1 C° above pre-industrial levels. Since temperature is already 3 C° above those levels, what is in effect being proposed is a 2 C° cut in today’s temperatures. This would take us halfway back towards the last Ice Age, and would kill hundreds of millions. Colder is far more dangerous than warmer.
  • Ø The new CO2 emissions target, for Western countries only, will be a reduction of up to 50% in emissions over the next eight years and of “more than 100%” [these words actually appear in the text] by 2050. So, no motor cars, no coal-fired or gas-fired power stations, no aircraft, no trains. Back to the Stone Age, but without even the right to light a carbon-emitting fire in your caves. Windmills, solar panels and other “renewables” are the only alternatives suggested in the draft. There is no mention of the immediate and rapid expansion of nuclear power worldwide to prevent near-total economic destruction.
  • Ø The new CO2 concentration target could be as low as 300 ppmv CO2 equivalent (i.e., including all other greenhouse gases as well as CO2 itself). That is a cut of almost half compared with the 560 ppmv CO2 equivalent today. It implies just 210 ppmv of CO2 itself, with 90 ppmv CO2 equivalent from other greenhouse gases. But at 210 ppmv, plants and trees begin to die. CO2 is plant food. They need a lot more of it than 210 ppmv.
  • Ø The peak-greenhouse-gas target year – for the West only – will be this year. We will be obliged to cut our emissions from now on, regardless of the effect on our economies (and the lack of effect on the climate).
  • Ø The West will pay for everything, because of its “historical responsibility” for causing “global warming”. Third-world countries will not be obliged to pay anything. But it is the UN, not the third-world countries, that will get the money from the West, taking nearly all of it for itself as usual. There is no provision anywhere in the draft for the UN to publish accounts of how it has spent the $100 billion a year the draft demands that the West should stump up from now on.

The real lunacy comes in the small print – all of it in 8-point type, near-illegibly printed on grubby, recycled paper. Every fashionable leftist idiocy is catered for.

Talking of which, note in passing that Rajendra Pachauri, the railroad engineer who, in the topsy-turvy looking-glass world of international climate insanity is the “science” chairman of the UN’s climate panel, has admitted that no one has been talking about climate science at the climate conference here in Durban. Not really surprising, given no real warming for getting on for two decades, no recent sea-level rise, no new record Arctic ice-melt, fewer hurricanes than at almost any time in 30 years, no Pacific atolls disappearing beneath the waves.

Here – and, as always, you heard it here first, for the mainstream media have conspired to keep secret the Madness of King Rajendra and his entire coterie of governmental and bureaucratic lunatics worldwide – is what the dribbling, twitching thrones and dominions, principalities and powers of the world will be asked to agree to.

“International Climate Court of Justice”: This kangaroo court is to be established by next year “to guarantee the compliance of Annex I Parties with all the provisions of this decision, which are essential elements in the obtaining of the global goal”. Note that, here as elsewhere, the bias is only against the nations of the West. However badly the third-world countries behave, they cannot be brought before the new court. Though none of what the draft calls the “modalities” of the proposed marsupial dicastery are set out in detail, one can imagine that the intention is to oblige Western nations to pay up however much the world government run by the Convention secretariat feels like demanding, just as the unelected tyrants of the EU demand – and get – ever-larger cash payments from the ever-shrinking economies and ever-poorer tribute-payers of their dismal empire.

The temperature target: At Copenhagen and Cancun, the states parties to the Convention arrogated to themselves the power – previously safe in the hands of Divine Providence – to alter the weather in such a way as to prevent global mean surface temperature from rising by more than 2 C° above the “pre-industrial” level. They did not even say what they meant by “pre-industrial”. From 1695-1745 temperatures in central England, quite a good proxy for global temperatures, rose by 2.2 C°, with about another 0.8 C° since then, making 3 C° in all. The previous temperature target, therefore, was already absurd. Yet the new, improved, madder target is to keep global temperatures either “1 C°” or “well below 1.5 C°” above “pre-industrial levels” – i.e., well below half of the temperature increase that has already occurred since the pre-industrial era. The twittering states parties are committing themselves, in effect, to reducing today’s global temperatures by getting on for 2 C°. This is madness. Throughout pre-history, the governing class – Druids or Pharaohs or Mayans or Incas – thought they could replace their Creator and command the weather. They couldn’t. No more can we. But try telling that to the strait-jacketed ninnies of today’s governing “elite”. Speech after speech at the plenary sessions of the Durban conference has drivelled on about how We Are The People Who At This Historic Juncture Are Willing And Able To Undertake The Noble Purpose Of Saving The Planet From Thermageddon and Saving You From Yourselves [entirely at your prodigious expense, natch].

The emissions-reduction targets: The new target proposed by the staring-eyed global-village idiots will be a reduction of 50-85% of global greenhouse-gas emissions from 1990 levels (i.e. by 65-100% of today’s levels) by 2050, with emissions falling still further thereafter. The West should cut its emissions by 30-50% from 1990 levels (i.e. by 40-65% of today’s levels) in just eight years, and by more than 95% (i.e. more than 100%) by 2050. Alternatively (for there are many alternatives in the text, indicating that agreement among the inmates in the Durban asylum is a long way off), the West must cut its emissions “more than 50%” in just five years, and “more than 100%” by 2050. The words “more than 100%” actually appear in the draft. The Third World, however, need cut its emissions only by 15-30% over the next eight years, provided – of course – that the West fully reimburses it for the cost.

The greenhouse-gas reduction target: Greenhouse-gas concentrations in the atmosphere “should stabilize well below 300-450 ppm CO2 equivalent”. This target, like the temperature target, is plain daft. CO2 concentration is currently at 392 ppmv, and the IPCC increases this by 43% to allow for other greenhouse gases. Accordingly, today’s CO2-equivalent concentration of greenhouse gases is 560 ppmv, and the current lunacy is to cut this perhaps by very nearly half, reducing the CO2 component to just 210 ppmv, at which point trees and plants become starved of CO2, which is their food, and start to die.

The greenhouse-gas peak targets: Global greenhouse gas emissions, say the mentally-challenged Durban droolers, should peak in not more than eight years’ time, and perhaps as soon as two years’ time. Western greenhouse-gas emissions should peak immediately (or perhaps by next year, or maybe the year after that) and must decline thereafter. The greenhouse-gas emissions peak in third-world countries will be later than that of the West, and – no surprises here – will depend on the West to pay the cost of it.

“Historical responsibility”: The nations of the West (for which the UN’s code is “Annex I parties”) are from now on required to beat their breasts (or at least their strait-jackets) and acknowledge their “historical responsibility” for increasing CO2 emissions and giving us warmer weather. The draft says: “Acknowledging that the largest share of the historical global emissions of greenhouse gases originated in Annex I Parties and that, owing to this historical responsibility in terms of their contribution to the average global temperature increase, Annex I Parties must take the lead in combating climate change and the adverse effects thereof.” This new concept of “historical responsibility” – suspiciously akin to the “war-guilt” of post-1918 Germany, declared by the imprudent governments of the world at the Versailles conference, which was no small cause of World War II – further underscores the rapidly-growing anti-Western bias in the UN and in the Convention’s secretariat.

Who pays? Oh, you guessed it before I told you. The West pays. The third world (UN code: “non-Annex-I parties”) thinks it will collect, so it will always vote for the UN’s insane proposals. But the UN’s bureaucrats will actually get all or nearly all the money, and will decide how to allocate what minuscule fraction they have not already spent on themselves. As a senior UN diplomat told me last year, “The UN exists for only one purpose: to get more money. That, and that alone, is the reason why it takes such an interest in climate change.” The draft says: “Developed-country Parties shall provide developing-country Parties with new and additional finance, inter alia through a percentage of the gross domestic product of developed-country Parties.” And, of course, “The extent of participation by non-Annex-I parties in the global effort to deal with climate change is directly dependent on the level of support provided by developed-country Parties.”

The get-out clause: One or two Western countries – Canada and Japan, for instance – have begun to come off the Kool-Aid. They have worked out what scientifically-baseless nonsense the climate scam is and have said they are not really playing any more. To try to keep these and the growing number of nations who want out of “the process” bankrolling the ever-more-lavish UN, an ingenious escape clause has been crafted: “The scale of financial flows to non-Annex-I parties shall be based on the assessments of their needs to deal with climate change.” Since climate is not going to change measurably as a result of Man’s emissions, any honest assessment of the needs of third-world countries “to deal with climate change” is that they don’t need any money at all for this purpose and shouldn’t get a single red cent. The UN is now the biggest obstacle to the eradication of poverty worldwide, because its pampered functionaries divert so much cash to themselves, to an ever-expanding alphabet-soup of bureaucracies, and then to heroically lunatic projects like “global warming” control. Time to abolish it.

World government: The Copenhagen Treaty draft establishing a world “government” with unlimited powers of taxation and intervention in the affairs of states parties to the UN Framework Convention fortunately failed. Yet at the Cancun climate conference the following year 1000 new bureaucracies were established to form the nucleus of a world government, with central control in the hands of the Convention’s secretariat and tentacles in every region and nation. The draft “agrees that common principles, modalities and procedures as well as the coordinating and oversight functions of the UNFCCC are needed” – in short, global centralization of political, economic and environmental power in the manicured hands of the Convention’s near-invisible but all-powerful secretariat. No provision is made for the democratic election of key members of the all-powerful secretariat – in effect, a world government – by the peoples of our planet.

Reporting to the world government: From 2013/14, the world government will oblige Western nations to prepare reports and submit them to it every two years. The format of these reports is specified in obsessive detail over several pages of the draft. The reports will describe the extent of their compliance with the mitigation targets imposed by the various treaties and agreements. The West will be obliged to to continue reporting “greenhouse-gas emission inventories”, for which “common reporting formats and methodologies for the calculation of emission, established at the international level, are essential”. Separately, Western nations will now be required to provide information on the financial support they have pledged to assist third-world countries in mitigating greenhouse-gas emissions and adapting to “the adverse effects of climate change”. The world government also expects to receive reports from Western nations on their financial contributions to the Global Environment Facility, the Least Developed Countries’ Trust Fund, the Special Climate Change Fund, the Adaptation Fund, the Green Climate Fund and the Trust Fund for Supplementary Activities”. Western nations must also provide information on the steps taken to promote technology development and transfer to third-world countries, and on how they have provided “capacity-building support” to third-world countries, and on numerous other matters. The inexorable increase in compulsory reporting was one of the mechanisms by which the unelected Kommissars of the anti-democratic European Union acquired absolute power over the member states. EU advisors have been helping the UN to learn how to use similar techniques to centralize global power just as anti-democratically in its own hands.

Review of Western nations’ conduct: Once the multitude of mechanisms for Western nations’ compulsory reporting to the world government are in place, the information gathered by it will be used as the basis of a continuous review of every aspect of their compliance with the various agreements and concords, whether legally-binding or not. Teams of five to eight members of the Convention’s secretariat will scrutinize each Western nation’s conduct, and will have the power to ask questions and to require additional information, as well as to make recommendations that will gradually become binding. The world government will then prepare a record of the review for each Western nation, including reports of various aspects of the review, an assessment of that nation’s compliance, questions and answers, conclusions and recommendations (eventually instructions) to that nation, and a “facilitative process” (UN code for a mechanism to compel the nation to do as it is told by people whom no one has elected).

Finance: One of the 1000 bureaucracies established at Cancun is the Standing Committee on Finance, which the draft says will have the power of “mobilizing financial resources” through flows of public and private finance, “mobilizing additional funding”, and requiring and verifying the reporting of finance provided to third-world Parties by the Western nations through a new Financial Support Registry. Finance for third-world countries is to be scaled up “significantly”, and Western countries will be obliged to provide “a clear work-plan on their pledged assessed contributions” from 2012-2020 “for approval by the Conference of the Parties”. Taxpayers will be compelled to provide the major source of funding through public expenditure.

Green Climate Fund: Western nations are urged to “commit to the initial capitalization of the Green Climate Fund without delay”, to include “the full running costs” and “the funding required for the formation and operating costs of the board and secretariat of the Green Climate Fund”. Here, as always, the UN bureaucrats want their own pay, perks, pensions and organizational structure guaranteed before any money goes to third-world countries.

Worldwide cap-and-trade: The draft establishes a “new market-based approach/mechanism … to promote the reduction or avoidance of greenhouse-gas emissions” – once again for Western countries only. Also, “Ambitious, legally-binding emission reduction targets for developed-country Parties … are essential to drive a global carbon market”. What this means, in the plain English that is almost entirely absent from the 138-page draft, is worldwide compulsory cap-and-trade, centrally imposed and regulated, imposed on Western countries only.

Patent rights: Under the guise of action to prevent “global warming” that is not happening at anything like the predicted rate, coded references to the extinction of patent rights in third-world countries are creeping into the text. For instance, “identification and removal of all barriers that prevent effective technology development and transfer to developing-country Parties”; and “the removal of all obstacles, including intellectual property rights and patents on climate-related technologies to ensure the transfer of technology to developing countries”. As an inventor with patents to my name, I can predict what effect any such provision will have. It will prevent the establishment and development of patent offices in continents such as Africa, which – thus far – has contributed remarkably little to the world’s inventions, not least because the structure for protecting and encouraging inventors is rickety or non-existent.

Shipping and aviation fuels were previously excluded from the scope of the Convention and are now to be included. International shipping and aviation are described as “a source of financial resources for climate change actions”. More money for UN bureaucrats.

The new bureaucracies: As though the 1000 bureaucracies created at Cancun were not enough, another bureaucracy is to be created “to oversee, monitor and ensure overall implementation of capacity-building activities consistent with the provisions of the Convention”. There will also be a new “International Climate Court of Justice” (see above). A “Financial Support Registry” is also to be set up.

The new special-interest group: Meet the “Parties that are alternative-energy-disadvantaged”. No wind, no sun, no renewables – so, handouts from the West, please.

The new buzzwords: Welcome to the notion of “equitable access to global atmospheric space”; “Mother Earth” [I kid you not: it’s in the draft]; “climate-resilient infrastructure” and “paradigm shift towards building a low-carbon society”. These buzzwords are in addition to pre-existing buzzwords such as “climate justice” and “climate debt” – the latter being the notion that because the West has emitted more carbon dioxide than the rest it owes the Third World lots of money.

“Rights of Mother Earth”: The draft burbles insanely about “The recognition and defence of the rights of Mother Earth to ensure harmony between humanity and nature, and that there will be no commodification [whatever that may be] of the functions of nature, therefore no carbon market will be developed with that purpose”.

“Right to survive”: “The rights of some Parties to survive are threatened by the adverse impacts of climate change, including sea level rise.” At 2 inches per century? Oh, come off it! The Jason 2 satellite shows that sea-level has dropped over the past three years.

The science is at last to be reviewed in a manner that appears independent of the discredited IPCC. However, no details of the method of review are provided, and other parts of the schizophrenic draft say we must defer to the science put forward not by the peer-reviewed learned journals but by a political body whose reports are not peer-reviewed in the usual sense.

Legally-binding treaty: According to the draft, the aim is to create a “legally-binding instrument/outcome”. This is UN code for an international Treaty. The US will sign no such treaty. Nor will Canada, Japan, France, India and many other countries. On the basis of drafts as in-your-face idiotic as this, no legally-binding climate treaty will ever be signed: which is just as well, because no such treaty is necessary.

War and the maintenance of defence forces and equipment are to cease because they contribute to climate change. Just like that. The UN draft text asserts: “Stopping wars, defending lives and ceasing destructive activities will protect the climate system; conflict-related activities emit significant greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere.” A wave of the UN’s magic wand and peace will reign throughout the Earth, the sun will shine (but not too much) the rain will fall (just where and when needed), and non-gender-specific motherhood and non-commodificated apple pie will be available to all. Ouroborindra, ba-ba hee! It does not seem to have occurred to the Druids of the UN that they have near-totally failed to prevent wars on Earth – the original purpose for which it was founded. Yet now, in their gibbering, spastic arrogance, they think to command the weather. Canute, thou shouldst be living at this hour!
