Christopher Monckton on the draft Copenhagen Treaty

Do you know what it says?

Do you know what it says?

I think it is essential for everyone who wants to understand what will really happen at Copenhagen to read the following section of the negotiating text for the Copenhagen climate change conference (COP 15):

38. The scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention will be based on three basic pillars: government; facilitative mechanism; and financial mechanism, and the basic organization of which will include the following:

(a) The government will be ruled by the COP with the support of a new subsidiary body on adaptation, and of an Executive Board responsible for the management of the new funds and the related facilitative processes and bodies. The current Convention secretariat will operate as such, as appropriate.

(b) The Convention’s financial mechanism will include a multilateral climate change fund including five windows: (a) an Adaptation window, (b) a Compensation window, to address loss and damage from climate change impacts, including insurance, rehabilitation and compensatory components, (c) a Technology window; (d) a Mitigation window; and (e) a REDD window, to support a multi-phases process for positive forest incentives relating to REDD actions.

(c) The Convention’s facilitative mechanism will include: (a) work programmes for adaptation and mitigation; (b) a long-term REDD process; (c) a short-term technology action plan; (d) an expert group on adaptation established by the subsidiary body on adaptation, and expert groups on mitigation, technologies and on monitoring, reporting and verification; and (e) an international registry for the monitoring, reporting and verification of compliance of emission reduction commitments, and the transfer of technical and financial resources from developed countries to developing countries. The secretariat will provide technical and administrative support, including a new centre for information exchange.

And here is Christopher Monckton’s powerful explanation of what it will really mean, which can be summed up in three points: global government, global wealth redistribution and global enforcement, all without any democratic process whatsoever:

  1. Yes but the problem is no one in the MSM is bringing these things up.It is all happening in the blogosphere.The opposition needs to be putting these questions forward in the parliament and in the news grabs and so far they are not.

  2. A signature on the Copenhagen treaty alone will not be enough to doom America to permanent economic ruin. The Senate must ratify it. That is why we must write our Senators and voice our concerns about cap and trade. It will permantely depress our economy and lower our standard of living through increased energy costs and millions of lost jobs. Visit to write your legislators.
