John Bolton on Energy & Oil

 


Climate treaty is another step toward global governance

Since treaties, say the globalists, have been around from time immemorial, what is the problem today with more ambitious treaties that diminish sovereignty somewhat more visibly? Why be so uncomfortable?

The key lies in seeing the big picture. The millennia-old notion of treaties expanded after WWII into a completely different realm. The EU led the way with its regional experiment, and EU diplomats and their worldwide allies sympathetic to their transnational aspirations have been spreading the gospel.

Revealingly, the EU's first president, former Belgian Prime Minister Herman Van Rompuy, upon taking office, called 2009 "the first year of global governance. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step toward the global management of our planet." Advocates of global governance in the US are not yet so outspoken in general public discourse, but they believe exactly the same things.

They almost uniformly supported Barack Obama for president in 2008.

Increased taxation is not the answer to global warming

The mother of all such plans is in the environmental area: the Kyoto/Copenhagen global warming enterprise. Buried in the failed Copenhagen negotiations were critical provisions to generate funding for "climate change" activities completely free of congressional action.

There are many grounds to oppose Copenhagen's statist agenda, but the issue of taxation should be one of the most important. Whatever the reality of the earth's changing temperature and humanity's role in it, the fundamental debate should be over the proposed solutions. If increased taxation, regulation, and control at the national or international levels are the answers, we are clearly asking the wrong questions.
