The "Summit" slated for June 20-23 is going to be a blast! The agenda includes a mind-blowing array of giveaways, new taxes and fees, and governmental reorganization that the U.N. wants to implement.
Giveaways are especially big; they want
--More than $2.1 trillion a year in wealth transfers from rich countries to poorer ones, in the name of fostering “green infrastructure, ” “climate adaptation” and other “green economy” measures.
--New carbon taxes for industrialized countries that could cost about $250 billion a year, or 0.6 percent of Gross Domestic Product, by 2020. Other environmental taxes are mentioned, but not specified.
--Further unspecified price hikes that extend beyond fossil fuels to anything derived from agriculture, fisheries, forestry, or other kinds of land and water use, all of which would be radically reorganized. These cost changes would “contribute to a more level playing field between established, 'brown' technologies and newer, greener ones."
-- Major global social spending programs, including a "social protection floor" and "social safety nets" for the world's most vulnerable social groups for reasons of “equity.”
And that's just for starters. These folks will all paddle their hand-made canoes over to Rio, where they will stay in mud huts and meet in a large forest clearing as the come to agree upon the sorts of "lifestyle changes" that should be imposed upon you. It's going to be something else.
