From the outset Anthropogenic Global Warming was always an attractive political outlook for those on the left of the political spectrum, the anti capitalists, hippies, tree huggers, bunny botherers, politicians and the water walkers of the Green NGOs, in short AGW was always going to be big hit for those who go through life with a chest full of unexplored ideas as the core of their belief, or politically expedient, belief system.
Prior to COP15 and Climategate there was no political doubt about Man Made Climate Change, however the timely release of emails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) from the University of East Anglia (UEA) showed exactly what the so called climate scientists were up too, producing science to match a previously declared political intention called Agenda 21.
Since COP15 endled in failure the whole UN AGW boondoggle has continued to decline, the relentless failed predictions of environmental disaster and 16 years of no warming have continued to erode the political impetus that the Climate Change agenda once had.
As Climate Change has dropped off the mainstream global political agenda, so once again the left are donning their free trade sustainable ethically manufactured Green armour and getting back into the fear and doom scenarios so beloved by the Green environmental movement.

The Club of Rome was the first organisation to push the idea of environmental sustainability in its 1972 book The Limits to Growth.
The book concluded that an increase in human population, with an increase in economic prosperity would lead to environmental Armageddon in the next 100 years, this essentially is the base for
modern environmental thinking the Green political agenda.
“The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

Agenda 21 has always been the backbone of the Great Global Warming Scam, as global warming has proved to be the biggest non event ever, so Global Warming became Climate Change, then briefly Climate Disruption and then for an even shorter time Weather Weirding was the new scare.
Then following the third COP failure in a row the whole climate change scam was quietly sidelined, in favour of the new meme “sustainable development“, though climate change remains part of the scheme, references are now vague and talk of preventing rising sea levels and temperature increases are no longer quantified, presumably to try to put a stop to all the failed predictions.
The sustainable development meme is a nice user friendly term that is meant to obfuscate the real meaning, what sustainable development really means is draconian one world Green socialist government, massive wealth redistribution from the developed world to con artists like the Maldives, a return to the drudge of the Green agrarian feudal society, and a massive cull of around 80% of the world’s population.
In the deep south of the USA the state of Alabama has passed a law stating that UN will not get their grasping hands on private property and wealth, and even more importantly the state government is prohibited from taking part in any UN schemes for sustainable development: Read the rest of this entry →
We should consider new taxes, user chargers, emission permits, citizen funding all based on the polluter-pays principle. so said 1992 Rio Earth Summit, Conference Secretary-General Maurice Strong at the closing of the summit.
Agenda 21 is the United Nations plan for the 21st Century where among its 40 chapters nature is deemed to be above mankind, the concept of guilty until proven innocent will prevail, and the establishment of a one world government with a socialist agenda for every aspect of our lives by the use of the standard socialist control mechanisms.
Agenda 21 eventually grew in to the Climate Religion of Al Gore and the settled science of Barack Obama, nearly 20 years on the closing statement makes interesting reading: Read the rest of this entry →
