Who's families have an extra $1,300 this year for the UN and Obama's energy policies?


Recognizing the importance of civil society or stakeholder sectors – (i]or Major Groups as
they are categorized in Agenda 21
– the Rio+20 Bureau’s co-chair ... invited Major Groups to
submit their amendments to the Rio+20 Zero draft outcome to him. The Secretariat has compiled these amendments into one single document.

112. We call for the fulfilment of all official development assistance commitments,
including the commitments by many developed countries to achieve the target of 0.7 per
cent of gross national product for official development assistance to developing countries
by 2015, as well as a target of 0.15 to 0.20 per cent of gross national product for official
development assistance to least developed countries.

126. We support the eventual phase out of market distorting and environmentally harmful
subsidies that impede the transition to sustainable development, including those on fossil
fuels, agriculture and fisheries, with safeguards to protect vulnerable groups.


With Hilary Clinton, Lisa Jackson and "Climate Envoy" Todd Stern leading the delegation, the United States is set to participate in the UN's assessment of a global tax on 1st World countries to fund their $100 billion dollar annual transfer of wealth for so-called "Sustainable Development," the new euphemistic substitute for "Man-Made Climate Change," "Climate Change," "Anthropogenic Global Warming," and "Global Warming."

The funding to "sustain" this "development" is estimated to start-out at $1,300 per U.S. family:

Report: UN to consider $1,300 green tax on US

Diplomats at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro next week will consider proposals that would levy taxes on American families and energy industries in order to support international efforts to combat global warming, according to a draft agenda for the conference.

"We recognize that subsidies for non-renewable energy development should be eliminated and replaced with a global tax on the production of energy from non-renewable energy sources," the UN draft agenda, amended by non-governmental organizations at the invitation of the UN, says. "The income of this tax should be allocated to renewable energy development."

UN to consider $1,300 green tax on US

Many have scoffed at the reports first surfacing at last December's Durban Conference (COP 17), but as facts develop, the agenda has become clear.
The tab for U.N.’s Rio summit: Trillions per year in taxes, transfers and price hikes

The Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) has reported that the Obama administration's negotiators are surreptitiously planning at the UN Climate Change Conference underway in Durban, South Africa, to agree to a tax on US transactions to fund a UN-sponsored "Green Climate Fund."

"We have learned that while many have discounted this conference, knowing that a full climate treaty is difficult to achieve especially with a U.S. Senate that will not vote to ratify," CFACT says. "Obama and his fellow climate travelers are working around the Senate and planning to stick America with the bill."

Report: Obama, UN to tax US for Green Climate Fund

Nevertheless, the UN has viewed Clinton, Jackson and Stern's attendance as indicators of Obama administration support for the plan:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will lead a delegation of officials to the United Nation's sustainability conference in Rio de Janeiro from June 20-22, the State Department said Tuesday, signaling a stronger U.S. commitment to the summit.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson will serve as alternate head of the U.S. delegation with special envoy on climate change Todd Stern as chief negotiator.

When pressed at Durban for more proof of Obama's commitment to participate in the program, Stern made clear to all in attendance:

Todd D. Stern, the Obama administration’s special envoy for climate change, was put on the defensive by a narrative developing here that the United States opposed any further action to address global climate disruption until after 2020, when the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, a primary United Nations climate agreement, and voluntary programs negotiated more recently will have run their course.

He firmly denied that the United States was dragging its feet and, somewhat ambiguously, endorsed a proposal from the European Union to quickly start negotiating a new international climate change treaty.
“It is completely off base to suggest that the U.S. is proposing that we delay action until 2020,” Mr. Stern said. He detailed a number of domestic and international actions that the United States had taken and said that he and other administration officials were working on others, like finding ways to raise tens of billions of dollars to help poor nations adapt to a warming planet.

“Taking all of those things together, it’s nonsense to suggest that what we are doing is proposing a kind of hiatus in dealing with climate change until after 2020,” Mr. Stern said. “So, I just wanted to make that clear ... ."

Climate Envoy Seems to Shift Stance on Timetable for New Talks

To those who haven't been paying attention, and to those especially who've chosen to deny the unfolding reality and the sell-out of US sovereignty by this administration, you only need to look at the president's reported agenda and the path we've taken toward submission to others.

Barack Obama has adopted similar positions in his discussions of energy and tax policy over recent months, urging Congress to eliminate "tax breaks" for the oil and gas industry, and to use those dollars to invest in "clean" energy and "sustainability."

CFACT has been attending the Climate Conference and reports on developments as they are revealed or discussed outside of Congress and MSM oversight.

President Obama's team of negotiators at the United Nations Climate Change Conference may agree to a tax on foreign currency transactions, designed to pay for a "Green Climate Fund," that would fall disproportionately on American travellers and businesses, according to a group attending the conferences.

This is the same president who is laready adding to your energy, food and transportation costs through his secret "Social Cost of Carbon" tax.

I can not understand why this is not on the front page!

This agenda is complete with plans to engineer the climate,
aka geoengineering, and solar radiation management.

People should be outraged!

Issues like these are where a truly 'transparent' government would be wonderful... so you could actually see what percentage of your tax dollars are going to travesties such as this.

But a transparent government could never really exist, and unfortunately our government is so very badly broken right now that nothing short of voting every incumbent out of office will do anything to remedy the situation.

Oh well, the world gets worse, Nero is still fiddling, and it's time to have a beer...
