Climate Scam – The Warming Alarmist Payback Calculator
Its business as usual in Big Green world, as their Climate Religion Scam comes apart around them, the policy makers and propagandists continue to push ideas that are never going to win them new friends or stem the tide of dwindling support.
Their faith is either touching, or stupid because they still believe that their boondoggle will come to fruition in Paris in 2015, that all the countries of the world will sign up to a legally binding climate treaty.
A key part of the climate treaty is further emissions cuts and wealth redistribution, the warming alarmists will say that wealth redistribution is a denier lie, as usual they are either wrong or lying, in the words of UN IPCC official Ottmar Edenhoffer “ we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
Wealth Redistribution or “Climate Justice” is sanitized Greenspeak, really it is all about the 2 core left wing principles: apportionment of blame and payback.
What, using UN parlance, does an equitable solution to prevent dangerous levels of global warming look like on a country-by-country level?
Policy wonks will talk of historical responsibility, climate justice, the right to development, political will and economic capacity.
This is smoke and mirrors stuff. It’s just about who pays the most, and who cuts the most.
The difficult question is how to apportion this blame and naturally put a price on it.
While the debate rages, a team of US-based scientists and climate campaigners from the Stockholm Environment Institute and EcoEquity have attempted to bypass the political arguments by building an “equity calculator”.
Tom Athanasiou from EcoEquity told RTCC it’s based on three main principles: responsibility, capacity and need.
Responsibility, capacity and need, in that order.
So which countries bear the responsibility for Anthropogenic Global Warming?
However Dr Pongratz emphasised that pre-industrial emissions have a much smaller effect than the carbon produced by engines.
“Looking into the past illustrates that the relatively large amount of carbon dioxide that we are emitting today will continue to have relatively large impacts on the atmosphere and climate for many centuries into the future,” she added.
It is generally thought rich countries like the UK are most responsible for climate change because they produced more emissions from the time of the Industrial Revolution onwards.
The Green payback calculator allows the user amongst other parameters to choose a Historical Responsibility start date of 1850 or 1950 or 1990.
No prizes for guessing that 1850 will be the chosen date for most Climate Evangelists and the figures make terrifying reading for countries like the UK that led the global industrial revolution and once had a colonial empire.
The UK needs to cut its baseline emissions 94% by 2020 to pay its Climate debt:
This amounts to the complete end of all manufacturing and fossil fuel generation, a massive reduction in flying and a ban on personal transport, except for the Green elite who will continue to exploit the fossil fuels they so hypocritically claim to hate.
The picture is equally grim for the US with a 74% reduction:
Emerging economies and major emitters like China and India can continue with business as usual, cuts of less than 10% with rising emissions levels amount to nothing more than crippling the economies of the industrialized world in favor of the economies of the developing world.
That is just payback by another name.

Here is my letter to The Editor,
The Financial Post’
As you read this, bureaucrats in dozens of first world ‘carbon polluting’ nations are totting up how much cash they will give from their citizens to the UN in 2015 ostensibly for our debt to the (non polluting) third world. Canada is obviously among the carbon polluters what with all our cars and factories and, of course, horrid tar sands. Clearly we should pony up lots of compensatory cash.
But wait! It’s true Canada emits CO2 (which has somehow become ‘carbon pollution’), but don’t our forests and huge land mass absorb (sequester) CO2 as well? Of course! And now it can be proved. A Japanese satellite designed to track world-wide greenhouse gasses (IBUKI) has been in operation since 2009. For the year 2010 Canada is the fourth best CO2 sequestering nation in the world, taking a hundred million tons of Carbon from the atmosphere more than we emit. Think of that! We don’t need to pay any other nation for our carbon pollution, in fact we need to get money back from nations like India and China that emit rather than sequester Carbon.
Don’t hold your breath; the check will never be in the mail. But then nor should Canada’s.
It is relevant to your wealth distribution article as countries not only emit CO2 but absorb it too!
“Cue picture of stream from cooling towers…” Make that steam.
