Is payment for breathing next? They argue that in this way it would be possible to set a limit for each nation.
LIMA: As the amount of people who see no threat from global warming grows almost at the same rate as ice sheets in the poles, there are still those who ignore science and intend to drive their political interests above all else.
This week, climate alarmists meeting in Lima, Peru, have proposed to limit the amount of CO2 that each person emits as a way to abruptly curb how much CO2 each nation is allowed to release into the atmosphere.
The proposal has many people thinking whether the next step in the climate alarmism campaign will be a proposal to establish a ‘toll’ that would charge people for breathing.
For many years, politicians and bureaucrats have considered taxing people by the amount of miles they drive and even taxing farmers for the amount of flatulence their farm animals release into the air, so what is stopping the same people from proposing imposing a tax on breathing?
According to the Minister for Environmental Affairs of Costa Rica, Édgar Gutiérrez, the head of the delegation that is circulating the proposal to impose a limit on personal emissions, the plan has been discussed “since the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, but it has not been possible for populations to change their consumption. If we can agree on a target that affects the individual, then it will the person’s responsibility to limit his or her emission to two tons of carbon per year,” Gutierrez said.
The kind of draconian measures such as the one presented by Costa Rica are not new. In fact, they are abundant though intelligently disguised as policies that ‘make sense’ in official UN documents such as Agenda 21 and the 1992 UN Biodiversity Assessment which was agreed upon during the Rio meeting.
Climate alarmism contrasts with global perception
In contrast to the ongoing campaign that blames all of humanity for the debunked notion of we are all responsible for global warming, while attempting to impose limits to human progress, especially in developing nations, a new globally conducted survey sponsored by the United Nations, the Overseas Development Institute and Ipsos Mori published this week, once again shows that global warming or climate change, as climate alarmists like to call it, is of no concern for most of the 6.5 million people who participated in the poll.
“MY World is a United Nations global survey for citizens. Working with partners, we aim to capture people’s voices, priorities and views, so world leaders can be informed as they begin the process of defining the next set of global goals to end poverty,” explains the website that contains the results of the survey. Not surprisingly, climate change appears dead last on a list of 16 issues that were presented as priorities to those who participated in the poll.
Among the most concerning issues at the top of the result are education, healthcare, jobs, honesty in government and food availability. In total, 4,412,589 people cited education as the main concern, while 3,721,392 responded that healthcare was the most pressing issue. Only 1,354,059 people mentioned climate change as an important issue.
One important detail obtained from the survey is that from the 6,657,495 million people from around the world who participated in the survey, almost 4 million are between the ages of 16 and 30. This is particularly important because those people are the ones who will soon inherit the destiny of humanity in each of their corners of the world, and if they are already aware that the threat of global warming is a hoax and concentrate their efforts in real, more pressing issues, perhaps humanity does have a chance for a better future.
The number of women and men who participated in the survey was virtually 50-50, with 3,398,578 men and 3,200,527 women in total.
It is also important to point out that almost 3 million people who participated in the survey held a level of education above high school and many of them went into higher education. This means that people who are more concerned with education, healthcare, jobs and other real issues are fairly well educated to take over the destiny of humanity into their hands.
Contrast between fabricated science and reality
Not only are people more aware that anthropogenic global warming is a hoax, but reality also shows otherwise.
One of the pinnacle arguments offered by the so-called scientific community that alerted us about the dire consequences of not taxing us all to ‘fix’ climate change was that ocean levels would rise to swallow whole coastal areas. However, a recent large snow storms in the northern hemisphere have chilled their argument.
As pointed out by Somehow Reasonable, “Record setting cold and snow, not global warming, became the norm in November 2014.”
Four Thousand eight hundred fifty six locations in the U.S. set daily record low-high temperatures in November and another 4,121 saw record lows at least one day in November,” reports the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
“For the U.S. as a whole, Rutgers University Global Snow Lab reports, North America snow cover reached a record extent for mid-November (15.35 million square kilometers), crushing the old record from 1985 by over 2 million square kilometers,” reports H. Sterling Burnett, Ph.D., who is the managing editor of Environment & Climate News and a research fellow for environment and energy policy at The Heartland Institute.
Today, Britons are being warned about the coming ‘Weather Bomb’. “The Met Office has issued a number of amber and yellow weather warnings as the cold front sweeps in, bringing winds of up to 80mph,” reports Yahoo News.
A fact that does remain a constant in the climate alarmism movement is the lack of mention, both in documents and during official events such as the COP20 now being held in Peru, is the consequences that weather modification has had in climate patterns. There is no mention of chemtrails, solar radiation management and other programs that have been running for decades and which are responsible for ‘unexplainable’ phenomena such as the continuous mass drought in the state of California.
According to a World Meteorological Organization report, 42 nations have active weather modification programs and many other countries are developing new geo-engineering programs themselves. Despite abundant documentation that show patents and active programs, the climate alarmists are still trying to scare the population with made-up science, as supposed to warning the world about the impending threats generated by geo-engineering programs.
