UN Climate Summit: We Will Sue Those Who Don’t Take “Climate Risk Seriously”

Pascal

Fossil Fuels. They have become the redheaded stepchild for Progressives, like President Obama, who have sworn to destroy them. And while the President has been utilizing the EPA to drive fossil fuels, such as coal, from the face of the earth, some of his fellow radicals in the United Nations have come up with a new twist on how to drive the fossil fuel industry out of business. Divestment.

By forcing companies, pension funds, and government entities to remove their money from fossil fuel investments Progressives hope to eradicate the fossil fuel industry. But because their influence has been limited to those groups and companies who agree with their agenda, the process of divesting from fossil fuels has been a slow one. But no longer.

During a recent press conference at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris, Pascal Canfin (pictured above), a former Development Minister under French President Francois Hollande and now Senior Climate Adviser with the World Institute, stated that now they can look at suing those organizations who don’t take the Climate crisis seriously in order to force them to divest from fossil fuels:

“So it means that it’s (divestment) not only anymore at all something which is focused only on cities, or non-profit sector, or philanthropy even if it started in this community. It’s now spreading to mainstream financial actors. For two reasons. Or let’s say three reasons.

The first one is the ethical one.

The second one is the financial rational. As you might know the share values of coal producers in Australia for instance, lost more than 95% of its value the last three years. So the trend is quite clear. And same for German shares in coal producers and if I take a quote from the Indonesian coal producers association chairman, “We are in a panic mode.” So it means something is really happening globally and the divestment campaign has its part. So the second reason is the financial rational to divest. It’s not a good deal anymore to be stuck with 10% of your portfolio in oil, gas, and coal.

And the third one is the regulatory framework which is happening and the reform of the regulatory framework. Which I want to conclude on this, is very new. That the Governor of The Bank of England, which is the Chairman of the Financial Stability Board, so the head of the G20 central bankers, is saying that there are three risks in front of you, as asset managers, insurance bankers. The first risk is the Climate exposure risk. The second risk is the transition risk, being stuck in business models that are dying, like coal. And the third one is the liability risk. And we are starting to see lawyers that could use a notion, a concept, which is the legal responsibility of investors which is called the fiduciary duty. In order to sue in the coming months and the coming years pension funds, asset managers, bankers, insurance companies that will not take seriously the Climate risk at stake. It’s not only anymore an ethical view. it’s not only anymore a financial issue. It’s becoming more and more, and it will become something for the judiciary issue.

Which when you add the three it’s a huge incentive to move and to divest.”

So as you can see, Progressives are the same all over the world. If you don’t willingly conform to their wishes, then they’ll force you to conform. Even if it means they have to sue you.. into submission.

UN Paris Climate Conference: Causes Of Climate Crisis Are Unequal Distribution Of Wealth & Power

UN Pic Women

For many years the public at large has been spoon fed the idea that Global Warming, aka. Climate Change, is caused by man’s excessive release of carbon into the atmosphere. And that the solution to the Climate crisis was to decrease the production of said gas.

Fast forward to modern day and over the past several years the Global Warming preachers have begun to change their tune (or as so many of us in the “new” media have been warning about for years, revealing their true motives). Now instead of the Climate crisis being caused by carbon emissions, it’s now caused by inequality.

On Monday, during a press conference at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris, Ms. Camille Risler, a representative of the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) which is an organization listed as an official consultant to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, stated that the cause of Climate Change is the unequal distribution of wealth, carbon, and power:

“This is the press conference of the Women and (unintelligible) constituency. It is one of the nine official constituency of the UNFCCC, and we are composed of 15 women’s rights and feminist organizations from all around the world. So I’m going to begin with kind of an overview of our positions and then I will give the floor over to my colleagues that will go more into details of each section of negotiations.

I’m Camille Risler. I’m from France but I’m living in Thailand. I’m working for a feminist network that is called Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development and I’m working for the Climate Justice Program.

So what we want to highlight here is that Climate Change is a clear symptom of an unequal and unjust world. So if we are to address the Climate crisis we need to challenge the structural causes of the crisis which lies on unequal distribution of wealth, of carbon, and of power. Whether it’s political power, economic power, or even military power.”

Ms. Risler goes on to say that the solution to the Climate crisis is to create more “just and equitable economies”.

Roughly translated that means an economy based along the lines of Socialism and Communism. Because now, according to the Climate preachers, nothing is more dangerous to the planet than a free market economy, individual free will, and inequality. Not even Islamic Terrorists.

UN Chief: “Violent Extremism Is Fueled By A Lack Of Jobs & Opportunities”

Palestinian-Murderers

The Progressive left is in full fledged denial mode. The President still refuses to blame radical Islam for the terrorist attacks in Paris, France last week. And during the most recent Democratic Presidential debate, the candidates did their best to avoid the “I” word by blaming everything but the kitchen sink for the horrid murder of French civilians.

But now it seems that American Progressives are no longer alone when it comes to blaming anything but Islam for the violent acts of terrorists.

On Tuesday, in an effort to echo the ridiculous statements of a U.S. State Department Spokeswoman this last February, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon stated that the cause of violent extremism is actually a lack of jobs and opportunities:

“The United Nations Security Council held an already scheduled debate on conflict prevention today amid added urgency fuelled by last week’s terrorist attacks in Beirut and Paris, with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stressing that counter-terrorism must also tackle such root causes as bad governance, injustice and exclusion.

Today’s violent conflicts and violent extremism are often rooted in a mix of exclusion, inequality, mismanagement of natural resources, corruption, oppression, governance failures, and the frustration and alienation that accompany a lack of jobs and opportunities,” he said at the opening of the Council’s day-long debate on ‘Security, development and the root causes of conflicts.’”

So if we just open up more McDonalds and Wal-Marts in the Middle East, then Islamic terrorist groups would be less inclined to want to kill infidels because it’s hard for them to pull a trigger, or detonate a bomb, when their hands are full of Big Macs and chocolate shakes while shopping for big screen TVs? Really??

Until the Progressive left admits that the teachings of Islam breed the violent extremism the world is suffering from today, terrorism will never be defeated.

Until then, the only people who will suffer are those of us living in the Western World, who will be led to our deaths by the same fools who believe that radical, religious Islamic terrorists give a damn about what they do for a living, or what economic opportunities they may, or may not have.

Postal Worker’s Union Prez Calls For Political Revolution And Endorses BERNIE SANDERS

united_states_postal_service_truck 2

Christmas time is coming. Normally that would signal one of the busiest times of the year for the U.S. Postal Service. But they may find it much more difficult than previous years to make their rounds.

Why?

Because not only do the Postal workers have to deliver Christmas presents to the American people, but they’re determined deliver Socialism as well.

The Communist Party USA news, People’s World, reports that the U.S. Postal Workers Union President Mark Dimondstein stated that it’s time for a political revolution in America. To that end he and his Union are endorsing Socialist Bernie Sanders for President in an effort to ensure that revolution takes place:

“WASHINGTON — The American Postal Workers Union announced today that its National Executive Board has voted to endorse Bernie Sanders for president. The vote follows Sanders’ rousing speech to more than 2,000 activists at the union’s All-Craft Conference, held in Las Vegas, in late October, where he displayed a deep understanding of postal issues and workers’ concerns.

“Politics as usual has not worked. It’s time for a political revolution,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “We should judge candidates not by their political party, not by what they say, not by what we think they stand for, but by what they do. Applying that criterion, Sen. Bernie Sanders stands above all others as a true champion of postal workers and other workers throughout the country. He doesn’t just talk the talk. He walks the walk,” he said. “He is a leader in the fight to protect the public Postal Service.”

So as you consider giving your postman the traditional Christmas bonus this year, you may want to take into account their union’s support for Bernie and give them something more appropriate. Such as a book on how the free market and economics work or just a T-shirt with the Communist Che Guevera on it. Based on their union president, they might not know the difference or the significance of either one.

Liberal California College Kids Mock Trump’s Immigration Plan (VIDEO)

cole

The attacks against Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump have done little to stem the increasing flow of support for his campaign. Most of the attacks have stemmed from the mainstream media and the establishment Republicans, but now the Communist Party is taking a swing.

The Communist Party USA News, People’s World, took a trip to San Francisco State University to find individuals who aren’t exactly fans of Donald Trump. Needless to say that while the Communists were successful, their results are best described as cringe worthy. The Commies attempted to slam Mr. Trump by asking the students what they thought about the candidate’s immigration policy. But instead of creating a politically damaging video reflecting the intelligence of the Progressive Youth, the production instead leaves the viewer with the distinct impression that the interviewees aren’t exactly playing with a full deck.

The video begins with a rather homely young lady stating that Donald Trump will “pass laws” to deport Hispanics who haven’t resided in the U.S. for at least 5 generations, and that his idea of building a wall is “strange”. The video then continues with yet another Progressive brain trust staring blankly into the camera lens asking, “Who is going to build the wall?” The thankfully short production then concludes with another Progressive youth claiming that it’s “wrong” to deport those who have lived in this country longer than “Donald Trump and his whole family” and sums up her beliefs by saying that it’s scary to think there are people who would actually vote for Trump.

The Communist’s attempt at attacking Donald Trump is, without a doubt, a huge fail. Especially since it has left me wondering if the video wasn’t really just a poorly made skit from Saturday Night Live, or a Public Service Announcement encouraging kids to “Just Say No”…to Progressivism.

Left-Wing Rag: The Silent Majority Of Americans Are Socialists

article-0-19CAA6AD00000578-527_964x641

It is said that the difference between a Democratic Socialist and a National Socialist can be measured by the thin distance between having a mob voting to seize your private property and having a dictator, elected by a mob, ordering to seize your private property.

Considering the United States is a Constitutional Republic which was designed to prevent such systems of government, one would think we wouldn’t have to worry about either of those events happening here. While that has been the case over the past two hundred years, the Progressive takeover of the American education system seems to possibly have had a very disturbing effect.

According to the left-wing Progressive rag The Huffington Post, a new poll proves that the silent majority of Americans are actually Socialist:

“It took the excitement generated by the political campaign of a self-described socialist, Bernie Sanders, to put into stark relief the extent to which the United States political system fails to reflect and respond to the aspirations of most Americans.

That’s because decades of income stagnation have transformed political attitudes in ways that don’t appear reflected in Washington. A recent Marketplace-Edison poll suggests that though they might not know it, many Americans, at one time hostile to socialism, have become democratic socialists. Their socialism is not the version that called for the public ownership of the means of production. Rather, what they support are programs that reduce the risks that accompany life in a market society.

The survey, released late last month, asked a representative sample of Americans about their attitudes toward seven different “safety net” programs — the kind that characterize democratic socialism in Europe and are espoused by socialists elsewhere. As Bernie Sanders has put it: “20 years ago when people here thought about socialism they were thinking about the Soviet Union, about Albania. Now they think about Scandinavia.”

Scandinavia or the Soviet Union, Socialists, of all stripes, do not respect individual liberty and the rights to private property encased therein. The collectivist beliefs of left-wing Socialist radicals are not, and should never be, compatible with our Constitutional Republic. Not if liberty is expected to survive… another couple of centuries.

New AP Poll: Majority Of Americans Don’t Care About Climate Change

global-warming-hoax

A week ago Russian President Vladmir Putin shocked the worshipers of Global Warming by announcing that man-made Climate Change is a fraud. It appears, according to a new poll, that the American people are of the same mind. Or at least don’t pay it a lick of attention.

According to an article on Deseret News, a recent poll conducted by the Associated Press discovered that the majority of Americans don’t care about Climate Change:

“Most Americans know the climate is changing, but they say they are just not that worried about it, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. And that is keeping the American public from demanding and getting the changes that are necessary to prevent global warming from reaching a crisis, according to climate and social scientists.

As top-level international negotiations to try to limit greenhouse gas emissions start later this month in Paris, the AP-NORC poll taken in mid-October shows about two out of three Americans accept global warming and the vast majority of those say human activities are at least part of the cause.

However, fewer than one in four Americans are extremely or very worried about it, according the poll of 1,058 people. About one out of three Americans are moderately worried and the highest percentage of those polled — 38 percent — were not too worried or not at all worried.

It seems that even though President Obama and the Progressives have spent the last decade pushing their radical Climate agenda onto the American people, they have failed in convincing them that it’s anything to really worry about. So while the President has stated that the “science is settled” on man-made Climate Change, the American people couldn’t really… care… less.

UN Climate Chief: UN’s Transformation Of Global Economy Is “UNSTOPPABLE” (VIDEO)

iFigueres Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC listens during a news conference after a week long preparatory meeting at the UN in Geneva

In February, the United Nation’s top Climate official, Christiana Figueres, openly admitted the U.N. is intentionally transforming the world economy by changing the economic development model of nations all over the world.

This new model, known as Agenda 2030, is set to fundamentally transform the United States into a Socialist nation, which also embraces “green” energy, within 15 years.

During an interview with CBS News in early October, Christiana Figueres stated that one of the reasons member nations are agreeing to adopt this new economic development model is because the transformation of the global economy is “unstoppable”:

“The U.S. Patent Office receives one patent for anything to do with fossil fuels and ten for renewable energy.

I think that gives you a very, very good sense of where the future is. Where you see the growth of job creation. That’s where the future is.

China is very, very clearly moving in the direction.

Why?

First, because they are listening to their citizens who actually would like to breath air without having a negative impact on their lungs.

Secondly, they totally understand that this transformation of the global economy is irresistible, it is unstoppable, and that if they want to continue being competitive in the global economy they need to be there first.

The United States, or China, or Tuvalu, to choose, you know, a tiny little economy. None of them are doing this to save the planet. All these countries are putting their best foot forward because they understand it’s good for their economy.”

George Soros Funded Group Says $15 Per Hour Is Not Enough, Try $43!

soros

Give them an inch, and they’ll take a mile.

The Fight for $15 movement has constantly heralded the call that by raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour individuals would be able to “make a living”. They believe that somehow the number 15 is magic and that all of their life’s worries will instantly melt away. When in reality all it will do is hasten their trip to the unemployment line by driving businesses out of business, or encouraging their employer to replace them with computer automation.

But it seems that a certain Progressive billionaire isn’t terribly concerned about driving up the unemployment numbers. As a matter of fact,
one of his organizations has come up with a way to speed up the process.

Alliance for a Just Society, an organization funded by Progressive billionaire George Soros through his Open Society Foundation, has released a report titled Pay Up: Long Hours And Low Pay Leaves Workers At A Loss stating that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour won’t be enough. According to the Communist Party USA news, People’s World, the report calls for raising the minimum wage as high as $43 an hour in at least one state in order to provide workers with a “living wage”:

“Low-wage workers nationwide have been campaigning for a $15 hourly “living wage” and the right to organize without employer labor law-breaking. But a new think tank report says that in most states, $15 is not enough – even for one person.

As a matter of fact, adds the report,Pay Up: Long Hours And Low Pay Leaves Workers At A Loss, the national average hourly living wage for a single person should be $16.87, at least as of the end of last year. In D.C., Hawaii and Maryland, it should be over $20.

For families, the situation is even worse. In Massachusetts, for example, a single mother with two kids would need to earn $43.30 an hour to achieve a living wage.

The Alliance for a Just Society has issued such wage reports since 1999, but this is its first to discuss living wages. The issue is important: A living wage – or lack of it – is a key factor in income inequality, the yawning gap between the rich and the rest of us, nationwide.”

If it’s $15, $20 or even $43 dollars an hour really doesn’t matter because it all ends in more unemployed Americans. But considering George Soros believes that the worse a situation becomes the less it takes it to turn around, the bigger the upside, more Americans in the unemployment line is most likely exactly what he wants. So that he can more easily proceed with the fundamental transformation of this once great, and free, nation by picking up the pieces resulting from this suicidal economic minimum wage plan and reassembling them to reflect a more collective, and Progressive, society.

Give George Soros an inch….and he’ll happy destroy your country..and your freedom, while he’s at it.

UN To Unveil New “Global Citizenship” & “Shared Responsibility” Statue In New York’s Central Park

globalc

The last time I read the words “shared responsibility” it was when I discovered that the Obamacare fine imposed by the IRS for failing to have health insurance was called the Individual Shared Responsibility Payment. While I thought this had to be a veiled reference to some Marxist dictator’s quote, it now appears that it has more to do with the Progressive globalization movement.

This weekend the United Nations is set to celebrate its 70th anniversary. As apart of those celebrations the U.N. will unveil a new work of art in New York City titled Enlightened Universe. The U.N. claims this new sculpture is all about Global Citizenship and Shared Responsibility:

“In celebration of the seventieth anniversary of the United Nations, a monumental art installation entitled Enlightened Universe will be unveiled on Saturday, 24 October, at 4:30 p.m. at the Rumsey Playfield in Central Park.  The installation — created by Spanish artist Cristóbal Gabarrón — is presented by The Gabarron Foundation in partnership with the United Nations.

The commemorative work of art depicts 70 life-size figures joined in hand around a central globe, creating a human chain of global citizenship, respect for nature and shared responsibility.  The sphere measures 6,371 millimetres in diameter to correspond to the Earth’s average radius of 6,371 kilometres.  The 70 figures represent the 70 years of the United Nations.”

Rumsey Playfield, where the sculpture is to be erected, is an area of the Central Park where concerts and other events are held.

Considering that the new United Nations Sustainable Development Plan calls for the United States to become a Socialist nation by 2030, it’s not surprising that Obamacare, which was designed to push the U.S. towards government run healthcare, and the United Nations, would “share” the same collectivist, albeit Marxist, vocabulary.
