The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban, South Africa last month is one of a series of UN meetings working toward the UN goal of moving the United States into global government by environmental regulations and a vast network of taxes. These newly-imposed taxes will give the UN a tremendous stream of money. The plan for taxes was launched at the 1992 UN meeting in Rio de Janeiro, known as the Earth Summit, in a 300-page document called Agenda 21. The tax-seeking route then proceeded through UN meetings in Cancun in 2010, in Durban last month, and is planned to be finalized next year in Rio de Janeiro.
Schools and universities are important to Agenda 21's goals. The plan is to make them indoctrination institutions, where kids are taught "green" propaganda, as well as global education to make them citizens of the world. Agenda 21's major goal is to reduce the U.S. standard of living by cutting our use of energy. Agenda 21 plans to use smart meters, smart grids, and smart growth so that our nation's use of electricity can be controlled, limited, and redistributed.
When you get down to the nitty-gritty, what these UN climate conferences are all about is getting the UN to impose taxes to give the UN an immense flow of money so it doesn't have to worry about Congress cutting off appropriations. The UN wants to impose UN taxes on currency transfers, fossil energy production including oil, natural gas and coal, the commercial use of oceans, international airplane tickets, and all foreign exchange transactions. Taxes of that magnitude would give the UN so much power that it would become a de facto world government. Tell your Members of Congress to pledge that the day the UN adopts these extravagant anti-American taxes will be the day we say goodbye to the United Nations.
