Coca-Cola leads cheering section for 1-world climate change taxes
100 companies push '16 days left to seal deal' on $10 trillion treaty

Coca-Cola is spearheading a coalition of more than 100 companies pushing a United Nations climate treaty to bind the U.S. to cap-and-trade emissions regulation, commit the world's wealthiest nations to a potential $10 trillion in foreign aid and, possibly, form a proposed international "super-grid" for regulating and distributing electric power worldwide.

Together with the SAP and Siemens corporations, Coca-Cola launched a website called Hopenhagen, leading up to the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, which opens on Dec. 7. The website invites the citizens of the world to sign a petition demanding world leaders draft binding agreements on climate change and advertises, as of today, "16 days left to seal the deal."

Other "friends" of Hopenhagen include media outlets Newsweek, Discovery Channel, Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, The Wall Street Journal and Clear Channel, among others, Internet giants Yahoo, Google and AOL and dozens of other companies and organizations.

As WND reported, however, Lord Christopher Monckton, a former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, asserts the real purpose of the U.N.'s meeting in Copenhagen is to use concern over "global warming" as a pretext to lay the foundation for a one-world government.

He has warned the proposed Copenhagen agreement would cede U.S. sovereignty, mandate a massive wealth transfer from the United States to pay reparations for "climate debt" to Third World countries and create a new "world government" to enforce the treaty's provisions.

And even if Monckton is merely fanning the flames of fear in those suspicious of the U.N., Coca-Cola's "Hopenhagen" project isn't doing anything to put out the fire:

"We're all citizens of Hopenhagen," boasts the website, adding, "Hopenhagen: Population 6.8 billion."

"Sign the Climate Petition and become a citizen of Hopenhagen," the website encourages.

Specifically, the petition states:

"We the peoples of the world urge political leaders to:

* "Seal the Deal at COP 15 on a climate agreement that is definitive, equitable and effective

* "Set binding targets to cut greenhouse gases by 2020

* "Establish a framework that will bolster the climate resilience of vulnerable countries and protect lives and livelihoods

* "Support developing countries' adaptation efforts and secure climate justice for all."

"We also believe that anything is possible if we work together," states Coca-Cola on the Hopenhagen site. "That's why we're collaborating with governments, NGOs, other businesses and our consumers, to help tackle global challenges like climate change."

A closer look at the "deal" Hopenhagen is hoping to "seal," however, reveals a call to unprecedented levels of international regulation and wealth redistribution and includes many of the measures Monckton decries as an effort to "impose a communist world government on the world."

Maybe we should all boycott Coca Cola.

Reminds me of the time Coca Cola was teaching the world to sing in perfect harmony.
Looks like the hippies are at it again.

" Coca-Cola Hellenic serves a population of 550 million people in 28 countries. In doing so, we accept that own growth and development can only be sustained by helping to sustain our communities, not only for today, but also for future generations. We understand the importance of a unity of purpose and cooperation between governments and industry. We, therefore, encourage all parties taking part in the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen to unite in the interests of all peoples of the world and reach a meaningful agreement that sets clear goals and parameters, and outlines responsibilities that will achieve genuine results. "

Doros Constantinou, CEO, Coca-Cola Hellenic.

I have always wonder why companies like these don't do what they can for the environment without being told to do so?

But if they did that, then their competitors who could give less about the environment would have the edge.

Climate change or not, it is still about the money.

It is all about bringing more of the worlds population up to an economic level that they can afford that 12 pack of coke every week.

Not a surprise that the company that makes diabetes in a can, wants this passed.

You should boycott it, but not just because they are pushing for this.

But because its horrible for you.

... and also, cause there pushing for this.

Here's a list of supporters that people need to stop doing business with. Most I have to say I'm not surprised to see here.

Hopenhagen wasn’t built in a day.
We’re just one part of the movement for a better planet. Take a look at organizations that are helping make Hopenhagen happen.

form a proposed international "super-grid" for regulating and distributing electric power worldwide.

Wouldn't the true green solution be decoupling from the grid? Who gave them the right to both regulate and distribute power outside of the public forum?

I wonder if these companys have cheap land, in poor, but sunny countrys? So will coke make a solar farm in chile, to then sell the power to big countrys for a profit? This is bad, in a way this can link natural energy(solar,wind,geothermal,ect.) to property or worse, mineral rights. Want solar power...sorry you have to ask coke, they have the rights to sell that power over the grid.

This could be really bad.
