$1,400 in new taxes every year for every household in the U.S to go to countries like North Korea, Venezuela, and Iran. That’s chump’s change.

Proving once again that global warming is more a political issue than a scientific one at the UN, and that wealth transfer rather than warming mitigation is the true goal of UN action, Professor Kevin Andersen of the UK’s Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has submitted a paper saying “rich” nations such as the U.S. should halt economic growth over the next 20 years while allowing developing nations such as China and India to continue their explosive growth and emissions growth. Enforcement of economic growth restrictions in nations such as the U.S. should be enforced by World War II-style rationing, according to Anderson.

Developing nations, meanwhile, are calling for Western democracies to hand over 1 percent of their gross domestic product to developing nations, allegedly to help them pay for greenhouse gas reducing technology and adapt to global warming.
