Climate Negotiations And The Redistribution Of Wealth

When I noted below that the anti-global warming movement is more about advancing progressive causes than science or the environment, I wasn’t aware of how open they are about it these days.  Steven Hayward reports at National Review Online:

The climate campaigners don’t even bother to disguise their main agenda anymore. The German newspaper Neue Zurcher Zeitung observed two weeks ago: “The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.” What prompted this conclusion was a candid admission from a U.N. official closely involved with the climate negotiations, German economist Ottmar Edenhoffer: “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.”

Yes, dear readers, the very same persons voting to ban water and destabilize the U.S. economy in my previous post see themselves as negotiating the distribution of the world’s resources.  That means confiscating your resources and delivering them to developing countries, where they will be plundered and squandered by whatever kleptocrat clan happens to have most recently seized power.  Their dream is a whole world that looks like Zimbabwe.

I guess it is nice of them to be so obvious about it.
