United Nations and Anthropogenic Global Warming = Wealth Redistribution


[last update: 2011/03/17]



The United Nations wants your money.




The UN started the global warming scare in order to strengthen its position as a global government.





The United Nations doesn’t really care about CO2 – it is just an excuse for grabbing money. A 2004 report from the United Nations University [] states:


  • How can we find an extra US$ 50 billion for development funding? Our focus is on flows of resources from high-income to developing countries.


  • We are presupposing that the tax is indeed levied on individuals and firms in the form of a carbon levy (or other environmental tax base). Suppose, however, that we have subsidiarity, where the burden on national governments is determined by their carbon emissions but the national governments are free to decide how to raise the revenue. As noted above, they may, for political or other reasons, choose another tax base.


  • To the extent that emissions impose environmental damage wherever they occur, the corrective tax should be the same. However, this needs to be moderated to take account of the unequal distribution of world income — the very reason for our current interest in the tax. Considerations of global justice point to poor countries bearing less of the cost burden, and may justify the tax being levied only on high-income or middle-income countries.” (In other words the 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions caused by developing countries is to be ignored.)


They make it clear that they don’t really care what tax base is used, just as long as they can achieve redistribution of world income in the name of “global justice”.




IPCC Official Says AGW is About Wealth Redistribution


[update: 2011/11/20]


On November 14, 2010 the NZZ Online had an interview with Ottmar Edenhofer (Edenhofer is joint chair of IPCC Working Group 3 and deputy director and chief economist of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and Professor of the Economics of Climate Change at the Berlin Institute of Technology)


(Interview in German here:

Translation here:


He made the following statements in the interview:


  • That will change immediately if global emission rights are distributed. If this happens, on a per capita basis, then Africa will be the big winner, and huge amounts of money will flow there. This will have enormous implications for development policy. And it will raise the question if these countries can deal responsibly with so much money at all.


  • Basically it's a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization. The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War. … One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore … But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy.

United Nations Calls for Even More Money


The UN climate change panel that developed out of the Copenhagen conference wants more money: “[panel leaders] Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg of Norway and Prime Minister Meles Zenawi of Ethiopia said there carbon emission taxes must be used as a deterrent to producing the gases blamed for global warming and to raise revenue.

Rich Nations Need to Deliver Climate Cash


After the Copenhagen conference the western world was supposed to deliver the cash. But there’s a problem when “rich nations are demanding transparency in developing nations' actions to tackle climate change. There must be much better verification of developed countries' finance proposals,"

IPCC “Independent” Review


The InterAcademy Council (IAC), a multinational organization of the world's science academies, has been requested to conduct an independent review of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) processes and procedures. The study comes at the invitation of the United Nations secretary-general and the chair of the IPCC, and will help guide the processes and procedures of the IPCC's fifth report and future assessments of climate science.”


Not really independent.

Copenhagen 2009


The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UN FCCC) COP15 (Conference of the Parties – 15) in December 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark – is over.


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”.

African Nations Want Their Millennium Development Goal  / Climate Money


The United Nations Millennium Development Goals: “Climate change threatens sustainable development, especially the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Unless adaptation to climate change is funded through additional channels, the growing impact of climate change is expected to consume an increasing share of development aid. Official development assistance alone amounted to $120 billion in 2008. This amount is already insufficient to reach international development goals“.


Africa wants $67 billion per year for global warming payments.

Global Humanitarian Forum – Shadow UN


The Global Humanitarian Forum (GHF) was founded in 2007 by Kofi Annan (former Secretary General of the United Nations). At the launch of the forum in October 2007, the GHF’s press release states: “In its first phase the Forum will focus on the humanitarian impact of climate change on the poor and most vulnerable, which Mr Annan called “one of the most significant emerging humanitarian concerns we now face.”


The GHF press release also states: “The Board comprises high profile public figures from government, civil society, the military, humanitarian organizations, the business community and academia.“ (No mention of the United Nations). The secretariat, board and related members include past and present UN members, including Rajendra Pachauri – Chairman of UN International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

UNEP Could Care Less About People





Steiner (above): “willingness to address issues”:



The UNEP praises plastic bag issues – ignores population issues in the country with the 16th highest population growth rate in the world, most densely populated country in Africa and ranks 194 in the world for life expectancy.
