Is Rio+20 Sustainable?
Posted by Tory Aardvark
The Rio+20 Earth Summit in June was supposed to be the relaunch of the Anthropogenic Global Warming scare, carefully rebranded as “sustainable development“, the aims of “sustainable development” are the same as those for the manufactured climate change scam, zero growth economic models, population control and a return to a pre-indsutrialised world.
Even before the rebranding had started, world leaders like Barry Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron had more pressing engagements, Cameron citied the Queens Jubilee, so the date of Rio+20 was changed so Dave could go, he still is not going, “Little Nicky” Clegg, the deputy Prime Minister will attend instead.
According to the spin of the environmentalists it is only the Big Satan, the USA that resists the global economic suicide pact they so desire, all the developing nations are fully behind the Green zero economic growth economy:
During negotiations the Rio+20 negotiations, the G77 group has been the main force behind the push-back. Many within the group are concerned that the “green economy” is merely a ploy by northern countries to jump start their own troubled economies through technology and service transfers that the south would require in order to participate in the “green economy”.
Straight from the UN News Service last Friday, May 5th:
Representatives from governments negotiating the outcome document for the United Nations Sustainable Development Conference (Rio+20) today agreed to add five more days of deliberations to bridge differences that have kept them from making further progress in negotiations.
The extended negotiations will begin the 29th of May and last for five days, ending June the 2nd. Formal negotiations will pick up again in Rio on the 13th of June.
The document is now over 100 pages long and is “is a far cry from the ‘focused political document’ called for by the General Assembly,” according to Rio+20 Secretary-General Sha Zukang.
Controversy surrounds the current text and is getting in the way of producing a streamlined text that all countries will be able to agree upon at the final conference in Rio to be held in June. According to UN news:
Countries have voiced concern over accountability and implementation of the commitments made, as well as over the theme of the green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty, with some developing countries asserting that a green economy approach should not lead to green protectionism or limit growth and poverty eradication.
The G77 nations are on the right track, Greenpeace, WWF, FoE and a host of other Green and Environmental NGOs want to stop all economic growth, it is not a case of restrictive trade practices, to accelerate the recovery of financially troubled western economies, simply a desire to smother further technological progress.
As the date draws closer another major player in the Climate Change scam, will not now be going to Rio:
The European Parliament has cancelled plans to send a delegation to the UN’s Rio+20 summit on sustainable development taking place in June, saying the costs are too prohibitive.
The Parliament had planned to send 11 MEPs. But yesterday the political group co-ordinators on the environment committee decided that hotel costs, of up to €800 a night, were too exorbitant. A delegation from the European Commission will attend, led by Janez Potocnik, the European commissioner for the environment.
“The huge increase in the estimated cost of attending the summit is simply not justifiable, especially at a time when many Europeans are faced with economic hardship,” said Matthias Groote, the chairman of the environment committee.
This summit like the COP meetings in Copenhagen, Cancun and Durban will achieve nothing as the converted preach to the converted and the rest of the world ignores them.
