Fight Kyoto

Why Canada promotes the implementation of the Kyoto accord.

Introduction

The Kyoto accord is ostensibly intended to curb or reduce man-made global warming.  Realistically, the Kyoto accord will do no such thing.   At worst, man-made contributions through combustion of fossil fuels cause a maximum of one third of the warming experienced in the northern hemisphere.  All or most of the warming that we have experienced since the globe began to climb out of the Little Ice Age during the 19th century is caused by long-term variations in the amount of solar radiation.

The Little Ice Age brought an end to the medieval warm period that had occurred during the middle ages.  The medieval warm period had brought about annual global mean temperatures that were considerably higher than those that we experience now.  The medieval warm period had motivated the Vikings to set up colonies in Greenland.  When the Little Ice Age set in, it brought about an end to the Viking colonies in Greenland and an end to a thriving wine-growing industry in Southern England.  It brought about massive crop failures and starvation in the known world and brought about the witch hunts that lasted throughout the Little Ice Age.  The witch hunts intensified as the sun-made climate catastrophe worsened and gradually faded out as the Little Ice Age came to an end.

The Little Ice Age Ice brought to an end a period of social and economic growth that had begun after a somewhat less severe cooling of the global climate that had helped to bring about the collapse of the Roman Empire.  The collapse of the Roman Empire was followed by the long-lasting dark age in Europe, West Asia and North Africa, a period of economic and social chaos from which - so it can be argued - we never quite recovered.

Virtually all of the latest global warming that happened since the global climate began its swing back to warmer conditions occurred before the period of massive industrialization that warming had helped to create.  The peak of the global warming during that time was in the 1930s, after which global temperatures experienced a slight and gradual downward trend that lasted until now and shows no sign of abating.  Fortunately, technology advanced sufficiently to enable mankind to prove, through comprehensive and accurate satellite observations beginning in 1979, that the global climate indeed experiences a long-term gradual cooling in the southern hemisphere that is only slightly but not at all sufficiently offset by by a very much slighter gradual, almost imperceptible warming in the northern hemisphere, that is, as far as the temperatures in the troposphere (the lowest 5 miles of the atmosphere) go.  The global temperature of the lower stratosphere (covering an altitude range of about 9-12 miles) saw gradual cooling of about one degree Celsius during that interval. (See: NASA Global Hydrology and Climate Center, Global Temperature Anomalies)  However, science and our ability to apply it did not advance far enough to stop the spread of superstitions. 

If something abnormal that we don't quite understand happens or is said to happen, we are likely to blame supernatural forces or other causes that we can't quite comprehend or are made to believe are the culprits for causing abnormal conditions that will prevail or worsen in perpetuity.

The burning of fossil fuel generates CO2 (carbon dioxide).  CO2 is said to be a greenhouse gas, a gas that acts as if it were the covering of a greenhouse, a global greenhouse.  That is a catchy concept that caught on as well as the superstitions that caused fanatics to blame witches for the worsening cooling of the global climate beginning in medieval times.

Very few people understand the enormous complexity of the global climate.  No one understands those complexities well enough to make accurate predictions of climate trends.  A few general circulation models have been created that are being used to make predictions of climate trends.  The general circulation models persistently fail to agree with one another and can't even accurately simulate what the global climate is doing right now, let alone make accurate predictions about climate trends.  That does not mean that no one will ever be able to accurately predict climate trends or that we should not try to do that.  It is just that as of now no one has succeeded in doing that.  No one will be able to do that unless all factors that influence climate trends are known and correctly considered in the calculation of predictions about climate trends. 

Variations in solar radiation or energy output are the most important influence on global climate trends.  Yet, although plenty of evidence exists that global climate trends are being driven by solar variations, not one of the general circulation models used for the prediction of climate trends and to produce warnings about climate catastrophes takes those variations in solar radiation into account.  That is astounding, as the variations in solar energy output can be calculated and predicted with great accuracy far into the future.  Another error contained in the general circulation models is that the wrong emphasis is being given to the contribution of some atmospheric gases and that others are being largely ignored.  As far as global climate trends are concerned, water vapor is a much more important - 100 times more important - green-house gas than CO2 is. 

CO2 is a greenhouse gas alright, but not in the sense the forces promoting the hysterical reaction to climate-change causing global warming claim it is.  Greenhouse growers have for many, many years injected large quantities of CO2 into their greenhouses to promote substantial increases in crop production.  That is not because CO2 released into greenhouses helps to warm them, but because it is a vital natural fertilizer.

The sun controls and drives the global climate.   It varies temperatures by about 20 degrees Celsius each day in inland continental circumstances.  Variations in solar radiation bring us the large seasonal variations between the warm temperatures of summer and the cold periods of winter.  Long-period variations repeatedly caused the globe to experience cycles of long-lasting ice ages that alternate with somewhat shorter warm periods.  We are currently in one of those interstitial warm periods, and, going by the average length of those periods during the past million years, the onset of the next large ice age is about 500 years overdue.

Not all intentions of environmental activists are ill-advised or based on misperceptions.  Although the banning of DDT caused many millions of people to die from insect-born diseases, it is said to have saved some wildlife.  That is an important consideration if we feel that the welfare of wildlife is more important than that of humanity.  The massive reductions of sulphur contained in fossil fuel, brought about by severe tightening of environmental regulations for petroleum and other fuel producers and consumers, caused substantial reductions in sulphur dioxide emissions.  Although they also put an end to a thriving sulphur mining industry and trade, they caused a massive sulphur glut in the world, requiring long-term storage of many millions of tonnes of sulphur in many localities, and creating there well-justified concerns for serious adverse local environmental impacts caused by the gradual deterioration of the stored sulphur.  Nevertheless, massive reductions in sulphur dioxide emissions contribute to reductions in acid rain and smog in many heavily populated regions.  In London, England, for example, the sky is now often blue, and air pollution there is less severe now than it was during the worst period previously, the height of the industrial revolution in the late half of the 1800s. 

To label CO2 emissions as a threat to humanity or to the global climate is misguided.  Such claims are propaganda tools designed to help with the creation of a global socialistic state.  The implementation of the  Kyoto accord will at best achieve nothing less than a massive and massively escalating transfer of assets from the developed to lesser developed nations, through carbon taxes that punish highly industrialized nations while encouraging less developed nations not to worry about their own CO2 emissions.  At worst, and unfortunately more likely, the whole-sale implementation of the Kyoto accord will kill the global economy.  At the very least, the Kyoto accord will bring serious harm or perhaps even ruin to the economies of the developed nations.  The collapse of the developed nations will lead us into a new dark age for the world.

Still, very powerful and influential individuals have been at work for many years to implement exactly that sort of design for the future of humanity.

Fight Kyoto

by Ezra Levant

Book information

Interview with Ezra Levant, author of the new book Fight Kyoto, transcript by J. L. Jackson, broadcast December 9, 2002 on the Cat Country Radio show Agritalk with Jim Fisher.

Make sure you do not miss the excerpt that deals with Maurice Strong, the real power behind Kyoto: "Maurice Strong: A Dr. Evil-style strategist. Owner of a 200,000-acre New Age Zen colony [in Colorado]. Designer of a proposal to "consider" requiring licences to have babies. The architect of the Kyoto Protocol." It is an eye-opener, especially the strong ties to the powers in Canadian politics. For example: Maurice Strong gave Paul Martin his first job during university break "and made him and his family unimaginably rich."

At Ezra Levant's website there are more links to articles that are based on excerpts from his book.

The Earth Charter's Unholy Ark

With today's emphasis on "honoring the past and imagining the future," many see nothing wrong with redesigning the "memories" of the past to reflect their vision of the future. Many environmental visionaries have called for "new stories" that replace the old truths and redirect our values. The message in this new ark serves the purpose well. It puts new meaning into old memories and usurps the honor inherent in the original. But that's part of the UN plan. There is little appreciation for God's law and His treasured covenant (the binding agreement He made with His people long ago) in our pluralistic, postmodern age.

To fill the vacuum, even staunch Communists such as Mikhail Gorbachev call for spiritual revival. They envision a union of religions, all molded and conformed to a global, earth-centered spirituality. The gods, spirits and pantheistic forces of indigenous religions fit right in. Long a promoter of the Earth Charter and its socialist regulations, the former Soviet ruler knows well that strategic visual images inspire the masses and speed transformation. [See The State of the World according to Gorbachev]

So does Maurice Strong, the powerful founder and leader of the Earth Council. Though usually hidden behind the scenes, Strong is no minor player in this global contest for the minds of the masses. He led the UN Environmental Programme, directed the 1972 and 1992 UN Conferences on the Environment and Development, founded Planetary Citizens, directed the World Future Society and founded and co-chaired the World Economic Forum. He is a member of the Club of Rome, trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation and Aspen Institute, a member of the UN Commission on Global Governance, and Senior Advisor to the World Bank as well as to UN Secretary General Kofi Anan [See Towards A Rapid Reaction Capability for the UN].

"The real goal of the Earth Charter is that it will in fact become like the Ten Commandments."

— Maurice Strong

Earth Charter displayed at United Nations

In 1987, the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development issued a call for creation of a new charter that would set forth fundamental principles for sustainable development. The drafting of an Earth Charter was part of the unfinished business of the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.
In 1994 Maurice Strong, the secretary general of the Earth Summit and chair of the Earth Council, and Mikhail Gorbachev, president of Green Cross International, launched a new Earth Charter initiative with support from the Dutch government. An Earth Charter Commission was formed in 1997 to oversee the project and an Earth Charter Secretariat was established at the Earth Council in Costa Rica.

Update 2005 06 17:

2. Is the right to water a new concept within human rights’ legislature?
The right to water is explicitly enshrined in two UN human rights treaties - the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well in one regional treaty – the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. The Geneva Conventions guarantee the protection of this right during armed conflict.
In addition, the right to water is an implicit part of the right to an adequate standard of living and the right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, both of which are protected by the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
However, some states continue to deny the legitimacy of this right. In light of this fact and because of the widespread non-compliance of States with their obligations regarding the right to water, the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights confirmed and further defined the right to water in its General Comment No. 15.

Adopted on 26 November 2002, this document provides guidelines for States Parties on the interpretation of this right under two articles of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights - Article 11 (the right to an adequate standard of living) and Article 12 (the right to health).  [Source]

It makes one wonder.  Do only women and children have a right to water and to clean water?  But then CEDAW is not about women's rights, it is about disfranchising men, and the Conventions on the Rights of the Child are not about the rights of children, they are about disfranchising parents, with both of those objectives serving to implement the international agenda for the planned destruction of the family, so that out of the resulting rubble of civilization a global socialist totalitarian state can be constructed.

Canada's Commitment to Earth Worship at the Roots of Rapid Change to Canadian Law

An exploration of the history of the relationship between Maurice Strong and Paul Martin.  Stop Welfare for Politicians -- Cartoon: hogs at money troughMaurice Strong gave Paul Martin his his first job during summer vacation in university, hired him for Power Corporation Canada Ltd. after Martin finished university, and offered Martin a sweetheart deal, the purchase of Canada Steamship Lines, that made the Martin family unbelievably rich.
   Importantly, the article identifies Paul Martin's commitment to support the plan by Maurice Strong, Michael Gorbachev, Kofi Anan and Stephen Rockefeller to impose a universal religion of Earth worship on the world population.  The new-age religion is to replace all others.
   The Canadian government provided millions of dollars in funding for the development and goals of Maurice Strong's new-age religion.  The Canadian federal government also provided a $161 million in contracts to Canadian Steamship Lines, a corporation that has most of its fleet of about 50 ships registered in Barbados and Liberia and that uses shoddy labour practices.
   Maurice Strong was recently appointed as senior advisor to the Prime Minister's Office.  Will he remain in that position during Stephen Harper's reign?

*"Last year [2003], the federal government insisted it had done only $137,000 in business with Martin's Canada Steamship Lines in the previous 10 years. This week [end of Jan. 2004], of course, it was revealed that that $137,000 had actually been $161 million, including $46 million during Martin's tenure as finance minister."
