At a previous UNFCCC meeting three years ago at Doha, Qatar, Figueres let the cat out of the bag when she revealed that the goal of the whole process is a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.” Earlier this year she said “this is probably the most difficult task we have given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history.” That kind of dictatorial attitude is why climate change fanatics are called watermelons – green on the outside; red (for Marxism) on the inside. The climate change movement is where many Communists found a new home after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Obama knows that Congress will never approve any of the specific proposals that come out of the Paris conference, so he plans to double down on executive action by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. The EPA’s Clean Power Plan, which would basically eliminate coal-fired electric utilities and cause all Americans to pay much higher electricity bills, is currently pending before the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. That court was stacked with four new Obama judges in the last two years.
Congress still has the power of the purse and should use that power to block, delay, or defund Obama’s assault on the production of energy that powers the American way of life. It should refuse to provide the $100 billion a year that Obama has promised to the Green Climate Fund starting in 2020.
