Cancun climate change connivers

Much like last year's Copenhagen meltdown, the thrust of the United Nations' Cancun climate meetings beginning today will have little to do with "global warming" and a lot to do with wealth redistribution.

An official with the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change candidly admits as much in an interview with Germany's NZZ Online:

"Basically it's a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization," says Ottmar Edenhofer. "The climate summit in Cancun ... is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War."

You see, wealthy nations like the United States have "basically expropriated" the world's atmosphere, says Mr. Edenhofer. So, "one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy."

At stake are astronomical sums of money. Global warming-mongers in Copenhagen discussed wealth transfers of up to $100 billion annually. Yet to save the planet, big polluters like India and China would be exempt from emissions restrictions.

Supposed "climate change remedies" are nothing more than an excuse to achieve what the U.N. long has sought: a concerted redistribution of the world's wealth from developed to poor nations. Scrape away all the IPCC's disputed "science" and what's revealed is a pathetic money grab.
