UN Copenhagen Scam
[last update: 2009/12/18]
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UN FCCC) COP15 (Conference of the Parties – 15) in December 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark – is over.
Obama Wraps Up the COP15
“Leaders of the U.S., China and several other major economies said late Friday they had tentatively reached a new climate accord, though they said the pact wasn't aggressive enough to meaningfully curb greenhouse-gas emissions and merely set up a future round of negotiations to hash out the details. … The Copenhagen agreement contained no specific targets for greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. A proposed 50% cut that was in earlier drafts was removed. … The pact calls on developed nations to provide $30 billion to help developing nations deal with the effects of climate change between 2010 and 2012. By 2020, the text says rich nations "set a goal of mobilizing jointly $100 billion a year" for poor nations. The text says the money will go to the "most vulnerable" developing nations.” [http://online.wsj.com/article/SB126112727324796837.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_LEFTTopStories]
“It would kick off with $US10 billion ($A11.28 billion) a year from 2010 to 2012, climbing to $US50 billion ($A56.39 billion) annually by 2015 and $US100 billion ($A112.78 billion) by 2020. The text also proposes a range of innovative mechanisms for raising the money, ranging from a tax on air and sea transports fuels to a tax on financial transfers.”
So it all worked out well for the scammers after all – as the head of the UNFCCC said: “the northern hemisphere has to pay up” and this was the main goal of the UN conference – wealth transfer, not CO2 reductions. (See below).
Obama addresses Copenhagen COP15:
Early in the video he says: “Climate change poses a grave and growing danger to our people … this is not fiction, this is science.”
About 8:35 in the video he says: “These international discussions have essentially taken place now for almost two decades. And we have very little to show for it other than an increase – acceleration – of the climate change phenomenon.”
Not sure what the “climate change phenomenon” is that’s “accelerating”.
The figure below left shows the global average temperature anomalies (from the Hadley Climatic Research Unit (CRU) which provides the data used by the IPCC [http://hadobs.metoffice.com/hadcrut3/diagnostics/global/nh+sh/]) with the last two decades that Obama mentions expanded on the right (the IPCC was created in 1988). There has been 0.2 degrees of warming in the last two decades – all of it the result of the 1997-98 El Nino. According to the IPCC, CO2-based warming is only evident since the 1970s and it stalled a decade ago. Accelerating warming? – Not!
Accelerating Sea Level Rise?
The figure below left shows cumulative sea level change for 1900 to 2002. The trend shows no increase in rate since measurements began [http://www.wamis.org/agm/meetings/rsama08/S304-Shum_Global_Sea_Level_Rise.pdf]. Since according to the IPCC, CO2-based warming is only evident since the 1970s, all of this sea level rise since prior to 1970 cannot be caused by anthropogenic CO2, and yet the trend has not increased. Thus sea level rise cannot be attributed to CO2. The figure below right shows sea level from 1993 to 2009 [http://sealevel.colorado.edu/]. The last 6 years exhibit a declining rate of increase. Accelerating sea level? – Not!
Oh, Obama, on April 27, 2009, you addressed the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C.: “Under my administration, the days of science taking a backseat to ideology are over.” [http://www.pnas.org/content/106/24/9539.abstract]. If only it were true.

Liberal Alexander Cockburn says “Anthropogenic Global Warming is a Farce”
Copenhagen cyclists try to power a Christmas Tree:
UN Security Stops Journalist’s Questions About Climategate:
“A Stanford Professor has used United Nation security officers to silence a journalist asking him “inconvenient questions” during a press briefing at the climate change conference in Copenhagen. … However as the press conference drew to a close Professor Schneider’s assistant called armed UN security guards to the room. They held McAleer and aggressively ordered cameraman Ian Foster to stop filming. The guard threatened to take away the camera and expel the film crew from the conference if they did not obey his instructions to stop filming Professor Schneider. … His [McAleer’s] microphone was cut off after he asked former vice-president Al Gore about the British court case which found that An Inconvenient Truth had a nine significant errors and exaggerations.”
Although the Copenhagen confab was not meant to be a meeting of heads of state, Obama intends to go there and commit the US to reductions in emissions. Apparently the Nobel prize has influenced him.
Dateline Nov 26, 2009: “The White House said yesterday that President Obama will attend international climate talks next month in Copenhagen and commit the United States to a specific short-term target for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, providing new momentum for negotiations that had been faltering. Obama will travel to the Danish capital on Dec. 9, one day before he visits nearby Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize.” [http://www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2009/11/26/obama_ready_to_commit_us_to_specific_emissions_cuts/]
Senator John Kerry (sponsor of the Senate bill [see: http://www.appinsys.com/GlobalWarming/KerryBoxerAct.htm] has Joined Obama in this attempt to subvert US sovereignty. On Nov 10, 2009, Kerry brought UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, to address US senators. “A joint meeting between the UN Secretary-General and a group of US senators leaves hope of a US climate framework to be adopted before the Copenhagen conference, thus paving the way for a global deal. Although the US Senate is unlikely to pass a regular climate bill before the December climate change conference in Copenhagen, it is likely that the Senate can agree on a framework before the meeting. … Ban said he was encouraged by his day-long trip to Washington, describing a Senate framework as "quite important and useful for us to get this negotiation started" and "as a very strong political message and as a sign of commitment on the part of the United States" [http://en.cop15.dk/news/view+news?newsid=2568]
A Washington Post column about Moon’s senate event states: “The New World Order came into being at 4:25 Tuesday afternoon. … Ban, a South Korean national, took his place behind a lectern bearing the Senate seal and spelled out his demands. "I would certainly expect the Senate to take the necessary action; that's what I have encouraged the senators," he told reporters … The One World Government has specific requirements, Ban added, namely a "legally binding" commitment to "25 to 40 percent greenhouse gas reduction . . . as recommended by the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change." A U.N. official standing in the Capitol telling U.S. lawmakers what binding commitments intergovernmental authorities expect from them? ”.
The IPCC, which relies on analysis from the Hadley Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, is the basis for the global warming scare. I guess Obama is choosing to ignore the recent exposure of CRU emails that call into question the entire assumption of unprecedented global warming. CRU director Phil Jones wrote that global warming skeptics "have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I'll delete the file rather than send to anyone." (Jones was a contributing author to the chapter of the U.N.'s IPCC report titled "Detection of Climate Change and Attribution of Causes.")

Dateline Nov 27, 2009: UN COP15 web site reports: “Proposal to exclude Canada from the Commonwealth: In the past, the Commonwealth has suspended Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and South Africa for electoral or human rights reasons. Now, The World Development Movement, the Polaris Institute in Canada and Greenpeace have called for Canada to be suspended from the Commonwealth over its climate change policies … Countries that fail to help (tackle global warming) should be suspended from membership, as are those that breach human rights," says Clare Short, the former International Development Secretary … "If the Commonwealth is serious about holding its members to account, then threatening the lives of millions of people in developing countries should lead to the suspension of Canada's membership immediately," says Saleemul Huq, a lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change”
The UN FCCC is working on the wording of the agreement they want all countries to sign at the Copenhagen meeting in December 2009. The current text as of September 15, 2009, is available in the Ad Hoc Working Group Cooperative action Under the Convention at:
The dominant theme of the Copenhagen conference is made clear in the document – i.e. the transfer of money to “developing countries”. The document also makes it clear that global warming only affects developing countries and therefore the primary concern is the transfer of wealth to the poor countries.
The head of the UNFCCC, Yvo de Boer (appointed by Kofi Annan in 2006), is mainly focused on transferring money for development in third world countries: “"Yvo often defends developing countries, sometimes with strong statements insisting that the northern hemisphere has to pay up” [http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/Developmental-Issues/Yvo-de-Boer-global-climate-butler/articleshow/4628270.cms]
This is what the global warming scam is about.
The following items provide quotations from the UN FCCC working document (bold emphasis added). The quotes are in Times New Roman, my comments are in Arial. The working document contains various alternatives in wording so the final document will be slightly different.
In the UN FCCC jargon, Annex I countries include about 40 countries in Europe and North America, plus Australia and New Zealand. It does not include any countries in Asia, Africa or South America. A list of Annex I countries can be found at: [http://www.oecd.org/document/13/0,3343,en_2649_34361_1849485_1_1_1_1,00.html]
It is clear from the document that the goal is to transfer wealth from mainly the United States to the “less developed nations”.
The United Nations was the originator of the global warming scare in order to grow into a world government (See: http://www.appinsys.com/GlobalWarming/GW_History.htm) In 1995, in Our Global Neighborhood, the UN Commission on Global Governance (CGG) said: "It is our firm conclusion that the United Nations must continue to play a central role in global governance." the Commission's recommendations: for instance, that some UN activities be funded through taxes on foreign-exchange transactions and multinational corporations. Economist James Tobin estimates that a 0.5 per cent tax on foreign-exchange transactions would raise $1.5 trillion annually -- nearly equivalent to the U.S. federal budget. It also recommended that "user fees" might be imposed on companies operating in the "global commons." including carbon taxes, which would be levied on all fuels made from coal, oil, and natural gas. " [http://www.afn.org/~govern/strong.html]
The CGG also stated: "Charges for use of the global commons have a broad appeal on grounds of conservation and economic efficiency as well as for political and revenue reasons. … A carbon tax introduced across a large number of countries or a system of traded permits for carbon emissions would yield very large revenues indeed.” [http://www.sovereignty.net/p/gov/gganalysis.htm] The commission’s report stated: “The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable, indeed a sacred principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.”

The Scam and Obama
This Copenhagen treaty is a blatant scam by the UN to force the redistribution of wealth from the “west” to the “developing countries”, while establishing funding mechanisms for the growth of the UN. The world’s largest CO2 emitter – China – is not part of the countries that will pay. None of the African countries which in total produce 25% of the world’s greenhouse gasses are included in the countries that will pay (see: http://www.appinsys.com/GlobalWarming/GWForAfrica.htm).
The following figure shows the goal based on the lies of the UN. (See: http://www.appinsys.com/GlobalWarming/HumanImpact.htm#forum)
The UN includes NGOs in its current power structure to help overcome uncooperative nations. The Climate Action Network makes perfectly clear what the global warming scam is about: “the “solutions” to climate change that are being posed by many governments, such as nuclear power, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and biofuels are false and are not rooted in justice. ... a climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources” www.climatenetwork.org/bali-blog/ngo-bustle-in-bali
Obama said in an address to the UN: “And those wealthy nations that did so much damage to the environment in the 20th century must accept our obligation to lead. But responsibility does not end there. … any effort that fails to help the poorest nations both adapt to the problems that climate change have already wrought and help them travel a path of clean development simply will not work.” [http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/Remarks-by-the-President-to-the-United-Nations-General-Assembly/]
