One might expect a meeting of about two-hundred nations in Paris, not that long following the horrific terror attacks in Paris, to at least give a moment of silence or other recognition of the deaths of innocents; but their subject was far too serious to waste time on terrorism. There is a planet almost in flames to save! They had to discuss how the developed world could cut their human induced emissions and save the world from disaster while assisting the developing world in the only way that the developed world is capable. They will not be helping them with technology for clean energy production, nor with scrubbing technology to use with any fossil fuel burning in their smokestacks cleaning exhaust smoke lowering their emissions, nor manufacturing systems which are more efficient in their use of electricity or other power; they instead are to produce funding to provide each developing nation with one-hundred-million-dollars per nation and in return the developing nations promise to spend that infusion of cash. One might expect that there would be some demand that this infusion of funds would be used for the development of clean energy, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the betterment of the lives of their people, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the increase of yields through irrigation or other agricultural technology, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the more efficient use of natural resources, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the relief of the abject poverty through modernization of manufacturing, but you would be mistaken. So what are the restrictions on this funding, only that the developed nations make sure they pony-up the funds as demanded and the recipients need not even account for the use of these funds.
What was the one most interesting event of the entire Paris United Nations Conference on Climate Change was United States Secretary of State Kerry actually saying something, probably without thinking it through, which was as profound as it was honest and thus unexpected from Secretary Kerry when he commented, “…The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what, that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.” Secretary Kerry continued being both brilliant, straight shooting and painfully honest as he added, “If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions, it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.” The United States may need to find a new Secretary of States as Secretary Kerry appears to have been stricken with an extended period of conscience making him insightful and incapable of making the necessary lies required by the position as proven by his comments until this past week of weakness and which Secretary of State Clinton made a requirement of the position as most of President Obama appointees have been required to perform at presenting lies with a straight face and an earnestness when telling lies that only a psychopath could match. Should Secretary Kerry utter another truth or even a truism, he may be seeking new employment by Sunday.
So, once again the results of a climate conference sponsored by the United Nations, also known as the pilfer from the wealthy top fifteen percenters and give to the eighty-five percent around the world, lived up to its name in spades. In numbers of actual nations there are approximately three to one developing nations against developed nations or one-hundred-fifty developing nations against fifty developed nations. This means that every developed nation will be held to pay somewhere around one-third (1/3) of a million dollars such that the remaining one-hundred and fifty developing nations will receive their one-hundred-million dollars each year with no requirements being placed on the levels of pollutants produced by these nations and no restrictions on how the funds are to be used which in too many of the developing nations these monies will simply be squandered by the elitist few closest to the dictator du jour. This is simply another Obama approved giveaway of United States treasury as it will prop up a few unsavory strong arming fascists, and other dictators and Presidents for life to which the United States would never desire or willingly send funding to without some ability for tracing the usage and placing restriction upon which future monies may be denied as there is no use throwing good money after bad as things are not likely to improve until the form of governance is far less corrupt. All that was accomplished at the Paris sponsored United Nations Conference on Climate Change was for the Obama groups and again managing for the one-hundred fifty nations to out vote the fifty developed nations demanding that they contribute to a large fund which will be paid out by the developed nations and paid out to the developing nations with no stated purpose as the developing nations balked at even the mention of placing any restriction of the monies they were to receive.
This is the reality of climate change, the advanced world will be forced to make payments to the developing nations and so that eventually these developing nations will bankrupt the developed world’s nations simply by taking that funding which could have provided so much and so many remedies for the people, benefits which would have boosted the economies of these nations getting them off the ground and potentially into space but instead most of these funds will be squandered needlessly and the people of these nations will continue to suffer. The reason their suffering will continue is as simple to see as to why once people were placed on Welfare and all the accompanying programs such as food stamps, Medicaid, and a host of other programs to care for their every need often better than many of those paying for their care received from their employers. When people towards the lower end of the tax scale heard from their neighbors the advantages to not producing and simply living off the government, they joined the ranks of the nonproductive. This, of course, eventually forced the producers to act as it was getting more difficult for them to support the unproductive. In this case there is one difference, once one is rated as a developed nation it is all but impossible to become an undeveloped nation and, as such, there is no going the opposite way, once a developed nation, always a developed nation. The undeveloped nations will actually become very protective of their status as it pays the leaders very well and as the unproductive nations also happen to hold majority status amongst the nations in the United Nations, they control these empowered organizations such as the climate control, industrial development funding and any other tag they can assign themselves which requires the developed world to give largess in funding to the undeveloped but developing world in order to assist them in becoming a developed nation. Of course no nation from the undeveloped world ever crosses the threshold and becomes a developed nation, and they see to it that not even Greece can become an undeveloped nation though they have given it a good go and are now being treated by the European Union as if they had succeeded. Once a nation goes on the dole from its more economically productive neighbors it will never manage to make its way to productive as it will no longer be paid for their lack of efforts. Success is guaranteed to never occur because then they would be tapped to pay their former friendly nations who turned on them as soon as they were capable of paying them which meant more for them and too bad for the unlucky nation which succeeded. Imagine this, welfare at the United Nations representing a perfect model for why larger and larger segments of the developed world’s populations end up on government support rolls each year and the number of workers supporting those payments shrinks and may soon fall below two workers per recipient which is probably when a revolt by the working will take place as for them it will become easier to be unproductive and soon you have the fifteen percent supporting the eighty-five percent just as it is with the nations at the United Nations. Once the unproductive can force the productive to support them and also make it impossible for a producer to become a nonproducer, then you have the slavery of the working class, or as the United Nations is calling it, support of the underprivileged world which just cannot seem, no matter how much funding they receive and they are constantly voting for more, more, more yet never showing any progress towards joining the developed world, imagine that if you will. The secret will be to watch the nations described as “in transition” to see how many, if any, make it into the classification of developed world and I am betting except for those in Europe, none of the rest will ever quite make that transition willingly.
