It is hardly an exaggeration to suggest that millions could die of starvation, cold, and more.
Despite bogus promises of abundant, government-mandated "green" energy (think Solyndra), Europeans, Americans, Japanese, and others who live in developed countries will suffer greatly, too.
devastation will be particularly severe among the least well-off.
If adopted, nobody disputes the fact that the scheme would grant unprecedented powers over people, businesses, and governments to planetary bureaucrats.
The multi-trillion-dollar ploy would also wreak havoc on the global
economy - virtually every human activity, including breathing,
releases carbon dioxide.
But the agenda was never really to
stop "global cooling," "global warming," or even "climate change,"
so it is hardly surprising to learn that the UN is nowhere near
ready to give up on its vision of complete planetary dominance.
The global body's "solution" to the alleged anthropogenic (man-made) global-warming 'problem', however, can be summarized neatly without any mention of "climate" or "carbon":
Based on the findings of its widely ridiculed Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), the UN "carbon budget" would, among other measures, drastically limit man-made CO2 emissions - and therefore limit energy production and all economic activity - by empowering a global climate regime to rule over humanity.
Prices, of course, would
necessarily skyrocket - the cost of everything from food and
electricity to gasoline and travel would inevitably soar.
It goes into much more detail, too, presenting lots of numbers to give the impression that its claims are more than just arbitrary figures cooked up by power-hungry bureaucrats and tax-funded alarmists.
In simpler terms, the overall amount of carbon that the UN claims humanity can be allowed to emit is around one trillion metric tons - somewhere between 820 billion and 1.5 trillion, depending on the "probability" desired by governments and dictators.
However, the IPCC report claims that by 2011, people had already used up between
half and two-thirds of their allowable "carbon budget," and other
factors may mean the budget should be even lower.
Radical might actually be an understatement -
literally everyone and everything would have to submit to UN
Despite the best efforts of international bureaucrats and more than a few national governments, previous attempts at foisting the UN-run scheme on humanity have failed - most notably in Copenhagen.
However, the UN climate establishment does not plan to give up on
It was not immediately clear how the UN thought humanity's "carbon budget" should be divided up - how much CO2 Americans should be allowed to emit versus, say, Europeans, Chinese, Africans, Indians, and so on.
More concrete UN policy demands are expected by early 2014, when another section of the IPCC report is due to be released.
schemes outlined in the upcoming document, produced by one of the UN's global-warming working groups, will undoubtedly be seized upon
ahead of the 2015 UN climate summit in Paris by power-hungry
planetary bureaucrats, governments, dictators, crony capitalists,
and other special interests hoping to benefit from the alarmism.
And already, as if on cue, UN
schemers, communist dictatorships, and Western powers are loudly
lining up behind the plot. In many cases - the Obama
administration's schemes, for example - efforts to fasten the
elements of the regime on populations are already under way.
that the administration would further devastate the fragile U.S.
economy with its anti-carbon scheming. Still, Obama has made the
"climate" crusade a key element of his agenda, and more "executive
actions" are expected if Congress continues to tolerate the
Obama's radical science czar John Holdren, who in 1977 proposed forced abortions and secretly drugging the water supply with sterilants to deal with a supposed population crisis that never came, echoed Kerry's alarmism.
In comments about the IPCC's claims - even though 100 percent of its climate models were wrong - he said,
European Union "Climate Commissioner" Connie Hedegaard, another prominent alarmist whose job depends on the perpetuation of global-warming theories, demanded that the UN's "carbon budget" for humanity be taken into account during the 2015 UN "climate" summit.
The communist dictatorship ruling mainland China has also jumped on the anti-CO2 bandwagon, though most analysts expect it to demand that Western populations bear most of the crushing "carbon budget" burden.
In the United Kingdom, establishment politicians on both sides of the supposed political spectrum seized on the findings as well.
Despite the renewed wave of ferocious alarmism from the UN and dictatorial threats from the Obama administration, Americans do not appear to be very concerned about the "climate" non-issue.
A recent poll by the Pew Research
Center, for example, showed that just two in five Americans consider
supposed "global climate change" to be a major threat to the country
- among the lowest on the list of concerns, and about at the same
level as "political instability in Pakistan."
In Britain, the hysteria is dying, too, though officials have already adopted a five-year-plan "carbon budget" for British subjects. Aside from the almost comically alarmist U.K. Guardian, even much of the world media appears to be taking a step back.
But even though it has become clear that
the climate emperor has no clothes, the agenda behind it marches on.
That means the planetary body and
national governments, which are desperately seeking to expand their
own power under the guise of saving the climate, are in a race
against time to get the global carbon/governmental regime in place.
If the UN and alarmist governments get
their carbon budget, though, human progress and the economy would be
crushed - ensuring that dealing with natural climate changes, which
have always occurred, will be all the more difficult.
