Well it’s about time someone finally admitted the real reason for this fake climate scare-movement:
IBD – The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
It’s amazing to me that the single greatest economic system ever to be created by man and one that has raised more people out of poverty than any other system, would be under such attack by people who want to destroy it.
But I guess that’s the difference between me and those people. I don’t want to control anyone’s life except my own. I’m ok with people being free to choose their lot in life and for the poor to be able to springboard to the top via the opportunity that only comes from free markets and capitalism.
I guess I’m just not an elite type who loves power, money and control and who thinks only certain people should have it.
And I thank Jesus that I’m not like that.
