At least they admit that it’s a communist style transfer of wealth.
One of the biggest things the Communists pushed for was a transfer of wealth from the so-called ‘rich countries’ – which tended to be allied with the Western capitalist powers, and the so-called ‘poor countries’ – which tended to ally themselves with the Soviet Union.
Of course, all the countries that have gone from poor to rich did so by embracing more capitalist style thinking. Yet, despite this reality, the communists kept pushing for global wealth redistribution.
So, after communism was discredited, the leftists have found a new way to try and push for that redistribution. Now, it’s under the excuse of dealing with ‘climate change costs,’ and using the dishonest United Nations climate change report as so-called justification.
“The IPCC report gave us an alarming insight into the scale of harm that small island nations nations like mine, Fiji, will face,” said Kelvin Anthony, Greenpeace Australia Pacific’s Fiji campaigner. “Fijians and other Pacific Islanders are already witnessing some of these impacts.
“Pumping money into coal and oil will only make the climate breakdown worse – it’s dumb, it’s dangerous, and it’s going to expose us all to the risks of climate change.
“This is dangerous for everyone – rich or poor alike. The climate vulnerable are on the frontlines right now, but sooner or later everyone will be if we continue to burn coal, oil and gas.”
The IPCC report signalled that USD$2.4 trillion will be required to fund changes required to keep warming within 1.5C, but that this will provide for higher global aggregate economic growth because of lower climate related risks.
“Small Island States are the ones leading through their announced roadmaps towards a zero carbon world by 2050,” said Anthony.
“It’s crazy that the Marshall Islands and Fiji are so far ahead of places like France and Germany. Rich, developed countries must do more. There is no more second guessing. If rich nations can’t show us their plans to close their coal fleets, and to eliminate carbon pollution from their economies, then what is their plan for us?
“I want a liveable future for my daughter, but that will require bigger, richer, higher polluting countries stepping up and shifting the patterns in investment required if we are to avoid entire Pacific nations sliding beneath the waves. Importantly they must ensure climate vulnerable countries have the financial and technical support required to adapt, grow, and transition their economies.”
We can see the real message of that press release: With climate change as the excuse, the globalists leftists demand that developed Western countries like Canada must screw over their taxpayers and give trillions to countries that didn’t develop their economies.
That’s just a new excuse for the old-style communist global wealth redistribution of the past. We didn’t fall for it then, and we must not fall for it now.
