The “global warming” debate makes for a good predecessor to the discussions on just what consequences a ‘global climate treaty’ may actually entail. One of the items brought up in defence of action is the notion “can we afford to wait for proof?” In other words, when challenges come up to the presented scientific facts claiming to support “man made climate change” and the theories about the devastating consequences of such change, rather than hear the evidence against such theories we are instead asked to consider the impact of the consequences should those theories be proven right.
Regardless of the truth or non-truth of ‘man made global warming’, this type of argument should perhaps be turned around on the solution(s) being presented. Some of you may have seen the plea of Lord Christopher Monkcton about the ‘untruths’ in Al Gore’s “inconvenient truth” as well as the coming global climate treaty and it’s consequences on the world and more specifically on US sovereignty. Maybe you believe him, maybe you don’t.
But hearken back to history. Other nations have tried through various means to unite the world under a single empirical state. Generally speaking those states, at least in recent times, are similarly non-elected as Lord Monckton warns. He also quotes from Winston Churchill’s “Darkest Hour” speech.
(For those unaware, the Darkest Hour speech was made ‘to describe the period of World War II between the fall of France in 1940 and the Nazi invasion of Russia in 1941, when the British Commonwealth stood alone against Nazi Germany and the Axis Powers in Europe,’ as eloquently stated by Wikipedia.)
If we take the argument mentioned above which is used to support any number of causes to action by the ‘man-made global warming’ alarmists and apply it to the warnings of Lord Monckton and many others about the statist nature of the green movement and their proposed ‘solutions’, can we afford to wait to see if these warnings of an “un-elected international world autocratic government” to be true?
Unlike in the time of Churchill, we don’t have a USA to come to our rescue….
