Global Warming Wealth Redistribution

bucks.pngIncreased CO2 in the atmosphere has never been proven to cause anything other than enhanced benefits for life, both flora and fauna. The drumbeat from the warmists is steady and their support from the media makes the feeble-minded proletariat all the more convinced that glaciers will melt and coastal cities will be destroyed. You know, the sky is falling, the end is near, etc.

What the climate change believers don’t know is that the whole climate change scenario is not now and never was intended to save the planet. Simply put, it is global wealth redistribution from rich countries to poor ones, while lining the pockets of UN and other bureaucrats. In fact, an IPCC official, Ottmar Edenhofer, a co-chair of the IPCC, admitted it is about wealth and not climate in his own words:

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. … First of all, developed countries have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community. But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. 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, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.

I read this quote in a short article by E. Calvin Beisner entitled “Climate Change’s Great Legacy: International Wealth Redistribution,” available from The Patriot Post.
