So far, the US government has paid $1 billion to the GCF and the Russian government paid nothing citing the need to review and evaluate this hair-raising financial and political mechanism.
In The Air Merchant, one of the most read novels of Alexander Belyaev a Soviet Russian writer of science fiction, a British villain Bayley uses a gigantic air-sucking device, built by Swedish scientist Engelbrecht to slowly steal the Earth’s atmosphere in order to condense oxygen into pill form and to set up a production of “air.”
Gradually, his manufacturing sucks up nearly all the air on the planet, making him immensely rich. At the end, he swallows a handful of his air pills killing himself, while the Russia’s intelligence team saves the planet by getting inside his fortified Arctic island, stopping the oxygen consuming production and releasing the stored oxygen back into the Earth’s atmosphere.
What makes this 1929 book current is that the air-pills manufacturing process caused severe weather fluctuations accompanied by storms and hurricanes, torrential rains and droughts, and that made humanity to pay up big money to Mr. Bayley.
What has stuck with me during all these years since I read this novel as a kid was an understanding that manufacturing processes can be manipulated to achieve weather-changing results, and that a terrified humanity would pay lots of money to someone who would promise them to fix the weather.
An immense financial scheme that we know of as “Climate Change” is set up with the Green Climate Fund (GCF) as its financial instrument and the Paris Accord as its political instrument to make governments funnel $100 trillion of their public money into private pockets in the next 20 years.
It’s almost as much as it was funneled, by some estimates, from Russia’s economy into Western coffers during the 90s and the beginning of the 00s.
It’s all in jeopardy now due to the decisions of the Russian government not to ratify the Paris Accord pending their assessment of the financial aspect of the deal, and also due to the Trump’s administration emergency decision to withdraw the US signature from the Paris Accord and with it to seize the financial support of this money laundering scheme.
The sense of emergency with which President Trump addressed his constituents on June 1st was palpable: “… in order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord…”
“Thus, as of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the non-binding Paris Accord and the draconian financial and economic burdens the agreement imposes on our country. This includes ending the implementation of the nationally determined contribution and, very importantly, the Green Climate Fund which is costing the United States a vast fortune.”
The feedback of his decision was hysterical to put it mildly. Every time we witness such an orchestrated voices of the EU apparatchiks and the corporate media like a Greek tragedy chorus predicting the end of the world, we know that somewhere, somehow, another public money faucet feeding the deep state and its militant operations around the world has been cut.
In the middle of this pay-for-weather financial scheme sits the Green Climate Fund or GCF. The UK Overseas Development Institute (ODI) characterizes the Green Climate Fund (GCF) as “the newest actor in the multilateral climate finance architecture and the entity of the Financial Mechanism of the UNFCCC.”
According to the mission statement on its website: “The GCF was formally established in 2010 to contribute to the achievement of the ultimate objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) by financing climate mitigation and adaptation initiatives in developing countries.
Russia is classified by UNFCCC as an Annex I party and the “economies in transition” (EITs).
The Annex II parties, including the EU and U.S., are required to provide financial and technical support to the EITs and developing countries to assist them in reducing their greenhouse gas emissions (climate change mitigation) and manage the impacts of climate change (climate change adaptation).
President Trump in his announcement of U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Agreement has criticized the Green Climate Fund, calling it a “scheme to redistribute wealth from rich to poor countries.”
On a face of it, the Paris Accord looks like a good deal for the developing nations to receive new technologies, but in reality it’s not, since being a financial pyramid scheme designed to make the sovereign governments to shoulder all the financial obligations and risks without any ways to oversight and control the process. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that private Western companies and their shareholders are revealed to be the main beneficiaries of this scheme. Add to this a political pressure on the sovereign governments and the direct interference of the GCF with their law enforcement.
A current chairperson of the GCF is Howard Bamsey, “a prominent figure in climate change diplomacy.” His actual job title is the Executive Director of the GCF Secretariat, located in Songdo, Republic of Korea.
The Harvard Business School graduate, H. Bamsey had an amusing albeit slightly mystifying career in the field of “climate change.” He started as an Australian Ambassador to the UN in 1995. moved to serve as a Deputy Secretary of the Department of Climate Change for the Australian Government in 1995 – 1997, as a Special Envoy on Climate Change 2007 – 2010 and a Special Adviser, Sustainable Development Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Australian Government, after that he was appointed as a Special Adviser on Green Growth in the AusAID in 2011 – 2013 and a Director General of the Global Green Growth Institute.
Among his honors and awards his Wikipedia page lists Member of the Order of Australia, established by the Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia, and given for ‘Service in a particular locality or field of activity or to a particular group.”
Curiously, I couldn’t find his name on the List of the Members of the Order of Australia published by Wikipedia.
In 2017 administrative budget of the GCF is $45.7 million with the total allocation for 2017 to be USD 45,666,356.
Mr. Bamsey’s GCF Board Co-Chair Ayman Shasly is representing Saudi Arabia. Needless to say that the fund activities are being enthusiastically supported by the Australian coal producers as much as the Saudi Arabia’s petroleum and natural gas producers.
Just to give you a glimpse into how public money is being funneled into a few chosen private hands, here an assessment made by an Australian consumer watchdog the Environment Victoria.
Since the 2012 introduction of the carbon tax, states the EV, “electricity generators have passed on over 100% of the carbon price to retailers, while keeping $1 billion in cash compensation payments aimed to help heavy polluters make a transition to low emission generation.
The Australia’s Energy Market Operator suggests that prices have increased by AUS$21 per MWh since the tax was implemented. “Unless compensation payments from the Energy Security Fund are reviewed, generators could make windfall profits between $2.3 billion to $5.4 billion, depending on a future carbon price.”
That might explain why the head of the GCF Board and the Developed country Co-Chair Ewen McDonald are both Australians, working hard and helping their manufacturers to get ahead of the herd.
Just this one example shows that a map of green climate investments is very misleading, and doesn’t reflect the reality of the money flow.
The mechanism of the pay-for-weather scheme in great details described in a book titled the Financial Engineering of Climate Investment in Developing Countries written by Dr. Søren E. Lütken, a Senior Climate Finance Adviser at UNEP DTU Partnership. UNEP DTU Partnership (formerly UNEP Risø Centre) is a UNEP collaborating centre operating under a tripartite agreement between Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Denmark, UNEP and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and is a leading international research and advisory institution on climate, energy and sustainable development.
Dr. Lütken’s book is a treasure-trove of insights into how this financial scheme is being “engineered” and how the money is being flown through its pipes.
Why would anyone want to mine gas and oil, when you can mine money instead?
Once awarded by the GCF’s opaque decision making group, the money are being paid into the private hands automatically without demands for benchmarks or for any measurable results.
For example on the page 131, the author argues that implementation of the RBF or Result Based Financing, instead of automatic payments as it’s practiced now, would be a bad idea. “…result based finance — implying that a financing plan for a certain activity can be in jeopardy if the private company does not perform according to specifications — would only lead to potential bankruptcy, which would be in neither of the parties’ interest.
Interim bridge financing needs to be established, and a bridge financier will have to believe, more so then the result-based financier who seems to not believe, in the ability of the private investor to deliver the results.”
The finance vehicles of the pay-for-weather scheme are set up in such way as to create a permanent money drain on public resources.
As bank loans are in actuality just a give-away with the public financial backing, the other form of financing, bond issuance, has even less appeal.
“In this case it would be a developed country green bond. Mixed credits with green bond financing could be an option for the GCF to activate the institutional investors in supported finance.
The grant element addressing the fact that the financing to cover the incremental cost in whichever way and whenever it materializes in the financing structure or secularization model, is not an investment. It is a constant drain, and the financing to cover it may have to be injected somewhere in the financing plan. The choice stands between the four distinct levels in the financing value chain.
Due to its nature (a constant drain) it will have to be provided by national or international public sector institutions as support of the asset (GCF incremental costs), support of the finance, or support of the risk cover through government-backed guarantees. The grant element in the mixed credit corresponds to support of the finance.” p. 126
As for the government-donors overseeing their “climate investments” it’s not just made to be severally limited, but outright impossible.
“A subgroup for the Private Sector Facility has been established among the GCF Board’s 24 members. While the subgroup may have more in-depth interaction with a private sector, the GCF Board keeps such interactions at a minimum, only occasionally allowing two active observers from civil society organizations and two from private sector organizations, representing developed and developing countries, to participate in the meetings.” p. 128. “This may for instance be the Third World Network and the Sierra Club, representing civil society, and private sector representatives from the Climate Markets and Investment Association (CMIA) and the International Chamber of Commerce.”
Even more troubling that in addition to the insertion of a financial drain to public money and blocking the sovereign governments from control and regulation of their payments for weather, the GCF sets itself as a supranational entity capable of controlling the national law enforcement under the guise of the risk reduction guarantee.
“Other types of risks that the ECA’s (Energy Coordinating Agency) do not cover, which are clear objects for the GCF involvement, are changes in framework conditions that do not stem from changes of law – for instance, subtle changes in practices of law enforcement, which (normally) would be beyond coverage from the ECAs.”
According to Lütken, what makes the GCF a major player is a potential to manipulate law enforcement on both sides, the donor countries and the host countries, by using the threats to their “standing” by threatening to damage their attractiveness to other NAMA-related financing, and “possibly the standing in international climate negotiations. Here the GCF would be a central player…”

In case you have forgotten what happened in Ukraine, this book should refresh your memory with the incredibly precise and humorous chronicles: ANTHOLOGY OF RUSSIAN HUMOR: FROM MAIDAN TO TRUMP
God bless you Saker. You and your associates continually provide light and clarity to this world! Another excellent essay. Thank you!
Excellent article. Thank you Scott.
Thank you Scott for this clear assessment of the Paris climate agreement!!!
It always pays to read the small print – this was just yet another tool to exploit the developing countries by global corporations using climate change as the excuse!
It makes me angry that yet another cause along with the human rights con is used in this way. It sucks in young or idealistic people who support these causes, initiatives but the underlying purpose is more money and control for the wealthy nations.
On one hand, we are already paying into this. When one buys a refrigerator, TV set it’s anything in Europe, we get a small tax (Ecotaxe in France).
Who is this paid to? Who is accountable for this? The mechanisms for control are all sketchy.
On the other hand, in Africa, Cameroon for example, the governments have to jump through hoops to prove they are compliant in order to get anything which they do not get in reality, except through fancy NGOs setting up and charging all their operating costs and fat salaries to the host country as aid.
So I believe, Scott, the right word you should use is scam, not Scheme.
Have a great day.
Good to see that these mammoth crimes are getting a good dose of daylight cast upon them. Thank you Saker.
It is unsettling when thinking of the high degree of criminality permitted, unchecked, to enrich the o.o1%, with full government collusion, as well as international institutions like the despicable UN.
Here in the UK, back in the 1950’s UK GovCorp played with Geo Engineering, which resulted in an entire Devon village being destroyed, and since then stratospheric aerosol spraying has taken over our skies: Which is likely the cause of much of our extreme weather. I do comprehend that there is good reason for the spraying; or at least most of it, but still the opportunism is unhealthy and fatally corrupt. Fracking, and other practices demonstrates that GovCor[ps are mentally challenged: Dumping unlimited toxic and nuclear waste into our water tables to save a few bucks goes beyong the criminal. Far beyond.
So thank you Russia, and thank you Donald.
An interesting article again Scott, thank you…..I had a day away from world wide web today and it was wonderful, I’m planing on putting committees and subcommittees in place to come up with conferences to plan another day away….Just trying to sound like Bamsey’s green climate fund….He smiles so I’d like to be him, well maybe not.
Anyway I wouldn’t be looking to Oz Gov, proudly owned by Oz mining, for leadership in current green climate change….Who knows about one of it’s former employees.
Here are some links re. Climate acton down here or, ahem, disbursements for favoured companies –
…..So one wonders if the GCF is just hopping on the good thing.
And here is one oz state’s efforts at a less polluting future –
How said blood-liner and crypto-Jew Winston Churchill?
“Never let a crisis go to waste.”
but he forgot to mention the second part of Zion’s script,
“And if there is no crisis, create one.”
Taking about crisis…
… funny enough, there is a ‘crisis simulation’ company called Crisis Solutions that Ole Dammegard suspects of being responsible for the real-time coordination and supervision for all recent fake (cr)ISIS terror attacks. The company’s motto is ‘Crisis Solutions – The Clue is in the Name’.
Ole Dammegard 19m40s
Really? You’re such a poor victim that even Churchill is now a Jew? This whiny victimhood thing is really getting old. It is entirely possible that Churchill was a horrible person without invoking a mythical connection to Judaism. I mean why not point out that he was a Mason? They’ve been secretive and involved at the highest levels of power in the Western world for a very long time. But no, Churchill (who was areligious as far as I know), must have been motivated by the 1/16th or 1/128th bit of Jewish heritage. And he only used the Mason thing as a front while he was secretly going to Synagogue.
There is a reason why the Saker himself refers to the AngloZionist axis–because the British were pretty awful on their own. Lets not pretend that the Brits were some angelic, innocent people until they, in their infinite compassion, allowed the Jews back. And let us not pretend that they were so weak willed that they allowed a handful of Jews to overturn their empire, while they were subservient. The Zionist thing was a useful tool for the British Empire. Thus, they supported it. Just as it is a useful thing for the US Empire. But the US also supports various Islamic supremacists as well because they are useful to the Empire. It is an absurdity that every people in the world is so weak willed that they succumb to the Jews (who have been easily bested for their entire history), just as it is absurd that the Jews are all evil masterminds bent on destroying humanity.
We know for a fact that the British elite were involved in various forms of occultism. The Nazis too. And now the American elite are also occultists (see Podesta and his spirit cooking for example…). This is not a Jewish conspiracy as we can trace the history of these occult beliefs far back in European history, arising independent of Jewish presence. We can likewise play the connect-the-dots conspiracy game with the Catholic Church and Jesuits (as was popular a few decades ago). It is entirely possible and entirely likely that there are many conspiratorial factions with a variety of insane beliefs and that the Powers That Be are not a monolithic Jewish entity, but a bunch of deranged people with deranged beliefs (some of which are various strains of Jewish supremacy, some of which are Islamic supremacy, some of which are plain old American exceptionalism, some of which are baby killing Satanists). There is evidence for all of these things.
As Putin himself has said recently, only an idiot would blame all their woes on the Jews. It is a convenient divide and conquer strategy, taking a page out of a very old playbook. Why do you think this is so prevalent on online forums? When SHTF, everyone will blame the Jews again, blind to the fact that they’re just middle management. Meanwhile, the real power will hide itself again. Duh. It is totally obvious. You’re not going to fix anything with the knee-jerk blame the Jews attitude. All of human history suggests that humans are really, really good at being really, really awful. I mean are you going to claim that the Aztecs were crypto Jews too and that is why they did human sacrifices? Or maybe the Mongols were crypto Jews? At some point people need to accept responsibility for being human, and being human means the capacity for being evil (which is sort of central to all the Abrahamic religions, no?). This sort of lazy thinking does not help the cause. Yeah, Israel is an apartheid state. Guess what? South Africa was too and it wasn’t a Jewish thing. Yeah, the Ashkenazi elite in America are pretty terrible. Guess what? So were the WASP old guard American elite, the ones who genocided Native Americans and Monroe Doctrine’d Latin America. I’m going to guess that the majority of subjects of colonialism in Asia, Africa and Latin America lump all white people together and aren’t terribly concerned with whether they are Old Testament money lenders or New Testament conquistadors. The outcome is the same. They take your money and put you to the sword. Oldest story in history, no? It happened to all the other hominid species.
Just a gentle reminder ladies and gentlemen. Please try harder to make your points without personally attacking the person whose opinions you are responding to. Thank-you – Moderator
I forgot what the video was called but, Andrei Fursov says that England has been a magnet for capitalists since the 18th century. I would also say that the US has also been a Mecca for many capitalists around the world. My only question is how or why has the Anglosphere been at the forefront of capitalist modernity?
Oh well, Putin can’t be correct in everything, after all, he is only human.
You’re correct that the old game of divide and conquer is still being played and many people fall for that nonsense. I would like to add some further info to your comment.
When SHTF, everyone will blame the Jews again, …
Before Jewish people will be blamed, the Moslems will face difficult times first.
And now the American elite are also occultists … [emphasis added by me]
Are? They always have been. The Obelisk in Washington seems to be pretty pagan. The layout of Washinton DC resembles a Pentagram (not fully closed). Free Masons are still active in the US. Whatever rumors are spread about this organization, one thing is quite strange: they engrave A. L. (Anno Lucis) into corner stones of buildings they’re involved in planning. Whoever had been building St. John’s Cathedral in NYC also had some weird ideas for decorating the columns of the Cathedral (a bus falling from a bridge that might resemble Brooklyn Bridge, some ornaments that resemble flood waves above the New York Skyline, …).
If you’re using the correct key words search engines will show you corresponding pictures to all my examples. I don’t know what had been going on or what is going on, but I know it’s definitely very strange.
If you want the same thoughts that are expressed in Churchill’s quote(s), but without the racial hatred, I’d strongly recommend Naomi Klein’s book “The Shock Doctrine” (2007) for an excellent investigation into this. She shows, with in-depth research, how the Rulers of the World both use a crisis for their own ends, as well as how more and more often they create the crisis they need.
From my experience racial hate is something very superficial and en-trained. I have worked a lot with children and watching them eating, talking, playing and interacting with each others is so gratifying and such a learning experience.
Ever noticed, for example, that children with different backgrounds, sexes, skin colors, hair cuts, likes and dislikes are always magnetically attracted to each others?
If the kids are encouraged to spend time together, friendships transcend all social strata very quickly and everybody feels empowered and enriched by it.
It is only when the parents, the teachers, the media, the authorities step in and tell the children with who they shouldn’t play, and what is racist, sexist and what not, that the great divide and conquer wheel starts spinning. And once the wheel has gained momentum, it is very, very difficult to stop it.
When I am pointing out to people, that our Elites – from sports to media, to finance and politics – are to an over-whelming degree Jewish and even more so crypto-Jewish, then this is not racist, but fact.
Not pointing it out, and not wanting to know, would actually be racist.
Only for those who, like me, do not believe in “little green men”:
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GLOBAL WARMING SCAM
By Mike King
Excellente, thanks A LOT for post it..!
Thank you very much for your articles.
I would like to make a suggestions since you are spending a lot of your time and energy writing these articles (and I am not even sure how you are getting paid to do this research, but I truely believe you should be funded for your work).
Can I suggest of using your own simple flow charts to visualise the money flow process and the actors names within such a flow chart to help the reader. For example:
Government taxes –> GCF –> Companies
Companies <— Comsumers
Since money flow and the number and type of actors can be complex, such a flow chart can make it very easy to understand and will be caught by other websites and blogs that are interested in the topic and to spread the truth.
Also I was wondering if your articles are reviewed by any friends / colleagues ?
God bless you and God bless the Saker.
On this (whether we can yet make a difference in global mean temperature either intentionally or unintentionally, or neither………..) like a lot of things, I have never felt the necessity to “believe” anything.
What I think is that it would be convenient to be able to warm the place up if glaciers were encroaching on cities and too much farmland were too cold to produce crops economically. However, I think that we are a long way from that capability. Although achieving that capability, to either raise or lower global mean temperatures in order to mitigate the more dominant factors from outside the earth could be a civilization-saver.
But do the AGW alarmists want that thermostatic capability for our big home which I use in my little home? I assure you they are not interested, even in a cooling capacity (other than as a ruse to strangle development) much less a warming capacity to mitigate what these Russian scientists are forecasting:
Russian Scientists Forecast Global Cooling for Decades or More
June 3 (EIRNS)—A February article in the Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences: Physics, has just come to our attention, in which the Russian scientists dismiss the greenhouse gases and global warming, but predict global cooling for several decades, due to increased cloud cover. The Sun is currently at a solar minimum, with very few sunspots, and relatively little magnetic activity, which allows more cosmic rays to penetrate our atmosphere causing increased cloud cover. Something similar happened in the “little ice age” from ca. 1300 through the early 1800s.
In “Cosmic Rays, Solar Activity, and Changes in the Earth’s Climate,” authors Stozhkov, Y.I., Bazilevskaya, G.A., Makhmutov, V.S., Svirzhevsky, N.S., Svirzhevskaya, A.K., Logachev, V.I., Okhlopkov, V.P., write:
“Our results could be connected with the mechanism of charged particle fluxes influencing the Earth’s climate; it includes, first of all, the effect charged particles have on the accelerated formation of centers of water vapor condensation, and thus on the increase in global cloud cover. The total cloud cover is directly connected with the global temperature of the near surface air layer.”
Hi Bro93 can you email me at [email protected] … herb
Excellent documentary about connectedness of cosmic rays, Sun activity, cloud formation and climate on Earth. The amount of cosmic rays that reaches the Earth and causes cloud formation is influenced by Solar activity as Russian scientists say. The amount of cosmic rays varies also depending on where the Solar system is on its way around the center of our galaxy.
Svensmark: The Cloud Mystery
Without infrared back-radiation, the earth surface would be at -1 F (255K).
But as I read in The Atlantic: “Having social support, from an evolutionary standpoint, is far more important than knowing the truth”. So there’s a lot a social support around here…
If the atmosphere acts like a warming blanket, its composition matters similarly to every other blanket. Hence, either one accepts that the atmosphere warms the planet and recognizes that greenhouse gases contribute, or one rejects the blanket effect altogether and finds oneself at odds with reality. One cannot have it both ways lest one is completely free of logic.
By the way, just because a political power game does not help pulling the sinking tanker out of the swamp, it does not mean that the tanker is not drowning.
We have happily nothing to do with solar and cosmic activity.That is beyond us. But one can be sure that climate is changing. Co2 has effectively nothing to do with climate warming.
The issue for us where we are responsible is denudation, deforestation desertification and paving up huge surfaces with tar and concrete (thermal mass) of our planet. . Pollution of all kinds due to our consumerism. We can live more soberly support earth restoration projects etc.
Even if co2 where a factor we can stop all chemical fertilizers and go massively for organic farming. This will by the way hugely improve our health. 40% of all carbon in the atmosphere is due to the use of nitrogenous fertilizers.
We should effectively do effort to restrain the numbers of our species as the planet is not for man\women alone
“We have happily nothing to do with solar and cosmic activity. That is beyond us. But one can be sure that climate is changing.”
Agreed, I never claimed anything else.
“Co2 has effectively nothing to do with climate warming.”
The gas mixture in the atmosphere has. CO2 is a potent scatterer of infrared radiation, although other greenhouse gases are many times stronger. But lets suppose for a moment I would agree on that one too.
“The issue for us where we are responsible is denudation, deforestation desertification and paving up huge surfaces with tar and concrete (thermal mass) of our planet. Pollution of all kinds due to our consumerism. We can live more soberly support earth restoration projects etc.”
Agreed also but how did we achieve that? Using our own energy or by massive exploitation of external resources?
“Even if co2 where a factor we can stop all chemical fertilizers and go massively for organic farming. This will by the way hugely improve our health. 40% of all carbon in the atmosphere is due to the use of nitrogenous fertilizers.”
Yes. Further culprits are extremely potent greenhouse gases like nitrous oxides that are reported in CO2-equivalents for the sake of simplicity (i.e. one scale for all greenhouse gases).
“We should effectively do effort to restrain the numbers of our species as the planet is not for men\women alone.”
Agreed. Apparently, we are agreeing on all points except the contribution of CO2 and other greenhouse gases to global warming. However, it is interesting that whatever viewpoint one takes, it makes sense to limit our consumption of natural resources. For instance because
1. it lowers the pressure to fight for them – the peace-vs-war viewpoint;
2. it allows our children and grand-children an equal chance for well-being – the inter-generational and fairness viewpoints;
3. it minimizes the risk of irreversible adverse effects on the local and/or global environment – the climate/biosphere viewpoint;
4. it lowers the effort to mine/extract the resources – the cost viewpoint; and
5. it saves known reserves for future adaption to climate change – the insurance viewpoint.
the problem is that 6 scientist will say one thing and half a dozen others will say another thing.What are we amateurs to make out of all this .You know better then me that there were periods in Earth’s history when co2 levels were 10 and more times above what it is now but the planet was not scorched under the sun on the contrary it was the time of the most luxurious green cover
In case you don’t see this I’ll post it also in cafe
Thank you, Scott, for this well-researched explanation of the Green Climate Fund. After reading your article, I did some further reading into the GCF and it further confirmed that making the world cleaner is a very dirty business!! I saw something about funds being denied to a community-level water conservation project in Ethiopia, while Deutsche Bank was approved as a GCF investment partner. Dirty.
Not to nitpick, but it’s hard for me to praise Trump too loudly for saving a single billion dollars… when all the regime change/CIA ops appear to still be generously funded. One step at a time, I guess!
The government of Canada jumped on the Green Climate Fund bandwagon and they appear to be using it as an economic development mechanism for Canada’s clean/green energy sector. (Not so much for the altruism part, per se.) Back in November, they announced one project, that Canada was investing in “clean technology in Mexico and Chile to reduce pollution for a cleaner world.” Gotta compete with the rest of the G7/G20, I guess. :-)
You need to update your map and include China to the list of countries ratifying the Paris accord. Here: “China joins EU in supporting Paris accord. Trump Support in Doubt”, enjoy the link: http://washpost.bloomberg.com/Story?docId=1376-OQTUDFSYF01S01-28RC7FCGFH4MN7B38GCVJQD5KU
Let’s not deny that China is led by an elite that’s collaborating with the IMF in becoming a member of the globalist SDR club.
Also China and Chinese companies are making a killing by grabbing this “green opportunity”, jumping on board lock stock and barrel: dominating he subsidized green technologies and equipment bandwagon.
Great work. Thankyou.
Can I ask…does anyone recall the name of a French art house film from 1990’s on similar lines…paying for air…dwarves…balloons…dystopian.?
BTW…no man shall buy or sell except he who has the signifier of all life…on his right hand or on his forehead…in other words…all the works of hands and all thoughts…we march unstoppably to a carbon dollar…a world measured by carbon…every man in a frenzy serving the false saviour of climate science
Well at least one country is doing something about Climate Change.
How a country with GNP less than $2 billion dollars can provide free education and healthcare is based on Gross National Happiness.
Funny thing is without electrostatic charge the atmosphere of our planet only stacks up to 20 kilometres. The 120+ kilometres we have is not a classical mixture of gases, as it were in some kind of container, rather what we have is a bunch of gases entrained in electric fields.
Most of what is called climate change is more accurately called environment change.
About 13 years ago the Australian CSIRO published a study linking low rainfall in south eastern Australia with soot contaminants thrown into the air by large scale forest burning in Indonesia. The soot particles in effect seeding the clouds above the Timor and Sundar Seas resulting in early release of their moisture onto land in the south of the Northern Territory and the mid far west of Western Australia.
This same phenomena is the cause of reduced rainfall in north west China and altered rain patterns in USA. The alteration in rainfall patterns in China brought about by activity in India and the sub continent. The alteration in rainfall patterns in USA brought about by activity in Eurasia.
As for Arctic ice melt one should not dismiss Icelandic volcanism nor for that matter DieselGate and European activities dumping gigatonnes of albedo altering colourants onto the once highly reflective ice sheets, glaciers and snow cover.
One may speculate that the EU deliberately allowed, even promoted, diesel soot acceleration to alter the albedo of the ice cover to produce panic and belief in AGW.
Climate Warfare is here folks. One country’s soot and dust is it neighbours drought driver.
The Syrian drought may well be driven by Diesel Gate.
Hint follow the NSA spy master and Fannie Mae Paymaster Jamie Gorelick
Bolchevick sabotage, invasion and looting (just like the USSR liquidation).
Jamie is America’s enemy.
Green energy is a “Socialist invasion tax”, national political and economic sabotage.
Think of it as a “drag race for car titles” and 1 team has a “carbon tax” – a trailer, the other – no tax
Now have everybody in the nation run that race once with foreigners what happens?
You transfer all your wealth to your racing “partners” because you have a handicap.
Then what happens?
Foreigners move in and (removed for rule on profanity,MOD) because you’re broke and homeless so stupid you self imposed a handicap (End of story).
With this comment I’m replying to both of your comments.
Your statements Bolchevick sabotage, invasion and looting … and Green energy is a “Socialist invasion tax”, national political and economic sabotage. are one-sided. The world is neither black nor white.
You can go ahead and drive the biggest gas guzzler in town, but don’t dare to blame the tree-huggers when someday the oil runs out.
Read the exchange between Marcel Leutenegger and bernie. Both seem to be on the right track. We humans are contributing to environmental destruction. With regard to the CO2 debate I’m skeptical myself, nevertheless do I see the need for rethink the way we’re living. Just look at the moon-like landscapes of the Canadian oil sand fields. Forests that once converted CO2 into oxygen have been destructed on a wide scale. With the forests the animals are gone, too. Each and everyone can try to slow down the destruction or even reverse it, but that’s a process which will take decades. The best way to try to stop / reverse the destruction is less consumption of natural resources and using “bolchevick” green technology (like photovoltaic cells, wind energy, etc.).
Supporters of nuclear energy may consider moving close to Hanford. I’m pretty sure that real estate prices will be pretty low after the collapse of a tunnel where nuclear waste is stored. With regard to costs of nuclear plants, politicians found smart ways to finance those facilities. After all the shareholders cashed in big time, the tax payers (and the environment) will have to bear the heavy financial burden of handling all the nuclear waste. (Keep in mind radioactive half-life.) If “bolchevick” tree-huggers might’ve had a say in planning nuclear power plants, hardly any shareholder would’ve ever made a profit – quite the opposite, they might’ve been required to pay for storing the waste. Applying basic economics 101 to nuclear power doesn’t factor in the natural destruction. In general, economics doesn’t account for environmental destruction.
Let’s hope your neighbors will not turn entirely capitalist, otherwise you may face the problem of them burning their waste (with all the toxic fumes it brings with it) in the backyard since it’s way cheaper than paying for regular waste disposal.
Excellent analysis. However, what bothers me is that they have convinced the public that human caused climate change is supported by world wide “science” such as “The world is becoming warmer”. This is a stupid statement because it confuses temperature with heat. It is a natural to locally make the air in a city hotter by removing heat fro the air-making it colder. Ask Los Angeles. No analysis of latent heat and sublimation is given or explained. The propaganda would have the pubic believe “scientists” have taken a heat inventory of the earth’s surface and have established gain-loss statistics. How did they do that when no one can explain the the earth’s history of natural climate change?
