Lord Monckton’s Sisyphian task, part 1


Much like Camus, Lord Monckton must argue absurdity itself. Camus made the argument that all life was absurd, with the absence of God permitting a meaningless existence. Monckton faces a similar uphill battle, with him arguing that the absence of freedom is keeping us in the same superfluous task.

Lord Monckton’s main concern is the talk of global warming, and the largely vacant seats that will be at the Copenhagen United Nations Climate Change Conference this December. He is insisting that the treaty to be signed there is arguing for a loss of sovereignty for the Western powers:

I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.

How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once.

The treaty can be found here. (Many thanks, Watts Up With That.) Actually, the word “election” DOES appear, but it refers specifically within the confines of COP, the supreme body of the convention, and will not be voted on by Joe Blow or Fritz Schlub of the international community.

The reason that treaties like this get signed in the first place is that they lull you into a stupour that even Franz Kafka would have been rendered powerless. Check out this nugget on page 6:

PP.11 [Further emphasizing that] a shared vision does not include commitments for developing countries. It does, entitle technology transfer, capacity-building and financial resources for project implementation regarding mitigation national programs.

Could that possibly include nuclear proliferation? All under the guise of fighting climate change, we might be setting ourselves up for a transfer of major sensitive fission material to developing nations. A Nobel Peace Prize well-deserved, Obama.

PP.13 Recognizing that current and potential climate change impacts require a shift in the global investment patterns and that criteria for financing allocation shall clearly respond to the priorities identified by the international community, with climate change stabilization being one of these priorities.

Financial re-allocation, huh? This is at least not a surprise…

There’s also a lot of talk about greenhouse gases being responsible for supposed warming, dating as far back as 1750. (I guess the creation of a certain nation around that time might have had something to do with that particular date.) I also notice that since this egregious wealth created in the big polluting countries has to be transferred to those less developing nations, but wouldn’t its awful origins make the noble developing countries want to return the cheque? And for that matter, isn’t the use of the world “developing” for a nation just make them as greedy and shiftless as the rest of us?

It’s an eerie coincidence that the nations that are still struggling are also the exact same ones most impacted by climate change:

PP.15 (4) [Developing countries face not only the additional challenge of adaptation but also the need to put their economies on a sustainable path. All Parties agree that developing countries face serious adverse effects of climate change as well as threats to their future economic potential due to insufficient access to shared global atmospheric resources.]

Right, and apparently they just need access to all of our money and technology, and they will show us the light. This sounds all too much like Obama’s wealth from the ground up economic doctrine. They also have a habit of copying Obama’s sense of economic heroism saving them from themselves:

PP.15 (6) These adverse effects [also] [further] [undermine the equitable development needs of present and future generations] [demand a more equitable utilization of the global atmospheric resource to reflect the needs of present and future generations], and have a range of direct and indirect implications for the full and effective enjoyment of human rights including the right to self determination, statehood, life, food and health and the right of a people not to be deprived if its own means of subsistence, particularly in developing countries.

See, things can actually get worse if we don’t pass this thing. Does anyone else see the problem with making certain nations dependent on other nations as a source of productivity? Has ACORN gone international or something?

The United States managed to secure the fundamental rights of all men, even when global warming was battering them for a good quarter-centurty. Maybe if they were able to invent the fundamental rights of all people, they should be asked again how to spread wealth and prosperity for today, too. You could never convince these UN types that the rights of statehood and individual freedoms are ensured with minimal government interference. This is universal, not “particularly in developing countries.”

We’re on page 7 so far, and it doesn’t appear to be ending. We’ll explore the treaty more tomorrow.

    I’m glad that this is universal because Mars has been heating up something awfull and who knows what havoc our SUVs have wrought on other solar sytems.

    Will people who freeze to death this winter be able to appreciate the irony?

    Excellent headline,Rocky! Lord Monckton needs a few well spoken allies in the cause against global warming/ climate change lunacy and One World Government.

    AGW/CC has become the greatest peril to ever face mankind, the politics, not the alteration of the climate.

    Just to throw the OWG bastards for a loop, I hope the Chinese, in their new relationship with Iran, decide to arm them with some decent short range missiles. Then we’ll see what Obama’s made of.

  3. Rocky Says:

    Thanks, dmorris. Like I said, this isn’t even about the prospect of cutting global warming since they are not proposing any active study in how to reduce CO2. It is a marriage of communism and Druidic Gaia-worshipping. The “science” of Global Warming is virtually indistinguishable from any religion now.
