FINAL Report from Warsaw, Poland
Eagle Forum International Issues Chairman
November 24, 2013
The UNFCCC meeting in Warsaw, Poland, is finished! Great strides were made toward its stated purpose, a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.”
The U.S. caved to both funding schemes: “loss and damages” and to a deadline for commitments to the Green Climate Fund.
An international mechanism called the “Warsaw international mechanism for loss and damage” was created and work on funding is to begin next year.
The Green Climate Fund Board is to begin its initial resource mobilization process as soon as possible with rich countries, including the U.S., to announce how much they will “contribute” by next December when the UN meets in Lima, Peru. The U.S. will now prepare biennial submissions on their updated strategies and approaches for scaling up finance between 2014 and 2020.
On the final day of the meeting, I participated in a press conference with Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, CFACT, that cuts to the heart of the issue.
The UNFCCC is following the model of the American “war on poverty” that did nothing to lift people out of poverty, but did great damage to families by making them dependent upon the government. Likewise, starve 1.3 billion people around the globe of their ability to produce energy and they will be forever beholden to handouts from the UN.
Poor countries are always the winners and the rich countries are always the losers, yet radical environmentalists never let up on their goal to globally redistribute wealth. And it is heart-wrenching to watch the U.S. agree to its agenda: http://vimeo.com/79771046. The radical environmentalists, like Marxists throughout history, refuse to recognize that economic utopia, absolute equality, is a pipe dream.
At the conclusion, the meeting president Marcin Korolec said, “Warsaw has set a pathway for governments to work on a draft text of a new universal climate agreement so it appears on the table at the next UN Climate change conference in Peru. This is an essential step to reach a final agreement in Paris, in 2015.”
