UN Agenda 21 is the ultimate, fatal level of governmental interference with the Private Sector, which happens to be the sector where money is made. The same collective Marxist lies, pseudo-science, falsified data, and urgent artificial crises are used by both the globalist UN bureaucrats and the Obama Marxist-Democratic Congress.
Both seek the destruction of United States sovereignty, the US Constitution, the economy, the US Dollar, and the freedom of the American People. Both have, in effect, declared war on our country and our people. For now there is still a velvet glove hiding the Iron Hand.
|Agenda 21 is the compilation of numerous other preceding UN protocols and pseudo-scientific understandings – almost every piece of banditry ever written by the UN:·|
Rio Declaration (Agenda 21)……………………….
Bali Action Plan (BAP)………………………………
International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Barbados Programme of Action…………………..
Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness…………..
Mauritius Strategy and +5 Review……………….
Accra Agenda for Action……………………………
Sign on for Agenda 21 and you are signing on for the essentials of all the others, including Cap and Trade. The size of the UN would almost double because of the hundreds of bureaus, bodies, panels, advisory groups, study groups, and review boards that would be created.
The basic (faulty) assumptions are 1) that CO2 is an atmospheric pollutant; and 2) that our US leaders are dumb enough or crooked enough to buy into it. Al Gore, in partnership with Goldman-Sachs, stands to make billions off of carbon credit trading, as does George Soros. Other very powerful organizations and world class investors would like to see a Cap and Trade system in the US and worldwide.
The scheme is distressingly simple: Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is defined as an Environmental Pollutant. Worldwide and National limits are set by the UN based on the amount of CO2 that can be tolerated in the atmosphere. The UN of course defines the acceptable amount. Any nation producing CO2 beyond their set limit is taxed by the UN.
Are these UN geniuses forgetting that we all exhale CO2 with every breath? Are they forgetting that all trees and plant life thrive on CO2 – and, if fact, take in CO2 and release pure oxygen back into the atmosphere?
Under the UN scheme the US would have annual mandatory, legally binding assessments between USD 67-140 Billion, with additional fines for non-compliance.
The UN creates a zero-sum game by specifying a maximum level of CO2 (ppm) in the atmosphere. The US’s allocated level of CO2 would be reduced every two years by whatever increase in CO2 was needed for the new development going on in Developing Countries.
Every business, every industry, and every farm or agricultural project in the US would come under review by the UN to assess impact on World CO2 levels. The UN would have authority to withhold approval or to shut down any activity producing excessive CO2.
Under this scenario, US Small Business and the economy in general will go the way of the Mastodon.
Those nations that do not exceed their set CO2 limit can sell their unused carbon credits to other nations who have exceeded the limit.
The casino mechanisms are the International Carbon Exchange (ICE), the Chicago Carbon Exchange (CCX), and the Chicago Carbon Futures Exchange (CCFX). Goldman Sachs and Al Gore are partners in the CCX and CCFX. After Climate Gate and other exposures of fraudulent data, the CCX and the CCFX quietly closed down on Election Day 2010.
Why World Class Investors Like Cap and Trade
“The system can be gamed; that’s why financial types like me like it — because there are financial opportunities,” George Soros said at a London School of Economics seminar in July 2010.
Waxman-Markey Bill H.R.2454
The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, ACES, H.R. 2454 – also known as The Safe Climate Act– was sponsored by Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-CA) and Rep. Edward Markey (D-MA.).
Related bills include:
H.RES.587 providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 2454) to create clean energy jobs, achieve energy independence, reduce global warming pollution and transition to a clean energy economy. Sponsored by Rep. Doris O. Matsui [CA-5].
H.R.2998 the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, also sponsored by Waxman and Markey. It was referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.
S.1733 the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act. Sponsored by Sen. John F. Kerry (MA). Cosponsors are Sen. Barbara Boxer (CA), Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (MD), and Sen. Paul Grattan Kirk, Jr. (MA).
Renewable electricity standard
The bill creates a renewable electricity standard that requires large utilities in each state to produce an increasing percentage of their electricity from renewable sources. Renewable sources are defined as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, marine and hydrokinetic energy, biogas and bio-fuels derived exclusively from eligible biomass, landfill gas, wastewater-treatment gas, coal-mine methane, hydropower projects built after 1992, and some waste-to-energy projects.
The Renewable Electricity Standard, among many other items, identifies dates by which a defined percentage of electricity must come from a combination of electricity savings and from renewable energy sources.
- Requires 6% energy by 2012.
- Requires 9.5% by 2014
- Requires 13% by 2016
- Requires 16.5% by 2018
- Requires 20% by 2020-2039
- Up to 5 percent can actually come from efficiency improvements
- If a state determines that its utilities cannot meet the target, the efficiency component can be increased to 8 percent and the renewable component decreased to 12 percent
The bill also requires the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), in establishing regulations to implement the standard, to: (1) incorporate best practices of existing state and tribal renewable electricity programs; and (2) provide for the issuance, tracking, verification, and identification of renewable electricity credits (RECs). This is where Cap-and-Trade comes in, exactly as it did in the various Treaties and in Agenda 21.
The bill would put a cap on emissions of planet-warming greenhouse gases, and would require high-emitting industries to reduce their output to specific targets between now and the middle of the century. (This is the “cap” part of the “cap-and-trade” program.) The bill covers 85 percent of the overall economy, including electricity producers, oil refineries, natural gas suppliers, and energy-intensive industries like iron, steel, cement, and paper manufacturers.
Emission cuts would start in 2012. The cap-and-trade program would be completely phased in by 2016.
The goals for U.S. emission reductions, below 2005 levels, are phased in: 2012 (3%), 2020 (17%), 2030 (42%), and 2050 (>80%).
Scope of H.R.2454
The actual scope of this bill extends far, far beyond what can be discussed here. One must read the text of the bill on Thomas.loc.gov to appreciate the complexity of it. It is much like a Gordian Knot.
This is how the Federal Government is grown right under our noses and in spite of the American Peoples’ desire to cut the size and expense of government.
This bill attempts to achieve by devious legislation what the USA has rejected in the many environmental treaties put forth by the UN and in Agenda 21. These US and UN bureaucrats are the enemy of Liberty and Freedom. They are as dangerous to the continued existence of the USA, the US Constitution, and the Liberty of the American People as Radical Islamist Terrorists.
