I'm going to leave any political comments out of this post... since it will eventually become a mud-slinging contest like so many threads on ATS.

I found this article and wanted to share it with everyone on ATS. There is a lot of good information in here that shows what TPTB really think of us sheep!

For your reading pleasure...

Although the paragraph on climate change in the final version of the document seems like an afterthought, inserted as the last point before the summation, the draft communique indicates it was in fact one of the highest priorities, originally coming right after the opening preamble. The final version has also exorcised all but the most mealy-mouthed political language. Compare this sentence in the final version: “Public finance can leverage significant private investment” to the original: “Substantial additional and predictable public finance from developed countries is essential, and should serve as a foundation for private finance, carbon markets and domestic public resources of developing countries to contribute to climate action. Public finance can also leverage significant private investment.” The draft text opens the kimono on the financier’s plan to establish a process for systematic wealth transfer from developed countries not to aid developing countries (who will also contributing “domestic public resources” to fight the non-existent carbon dioxide scare) but to help prop up private financiers and carbon markets. This “public finance” will of course be raised by the developed nations through taxation, thus amounting to an indirect carbon tax on the population of the developed world. Perhaps the most egregious language in the draft document comes from the final sentences of the climate change paragraph, also replaced by bland platitudes in the final communique: “…serious consideration should be given to the creation of a new fund, as a complement to existing mechanisms, to support projects, programmes and policies, possibly with multiple windows, to support adaptation and mitigation, technology cooperation and capacity building in developing countries. It should have balanced representation and operate under the policy guidance of, and be accountable to, the Conference of the Parties, with its operation possibly entrusted to an existing international financial institution.”

Thanks for the info. I'm not able to view the PDF at this stage, but I checked out the HTML link. I'll admit I haven't had time to read the whole thing, but skimmed through.

Do you know where the document came from? It has a whole lot of hand (badly) written notes towards the end, so I was just wondering whose those notes were.

It seems there are a few people who are completely oblivious to the political implications of climate change. It is clear that the major players in the world financial markets are welcoming the cash flow generated by climate change and the futile efforts to prevent it (even if it's completely natural).

Carbon trading will do little to reduce climate change. Even some of the full blown AGW believers admit this. But you can rest assured that some people and organizations are going to profit BIG TIME!

Cheers
