H/T Leg-iron. Somebody is complaining about this appearing on TV:
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
Given the UN’s track record, the new “economic development model” will be a gigantic turkey. Top down control always is.
But it’s good to know what someone in the UN thinks the global warming scare is really all about. And it doesn’t surprise me at all.
And in pursuit of global warming, here’s a 54 second circulation model. Warming air on the right expands and turns red, and cooling air on the left contracts and turns blue. But instead of a stable circulation, it’s a pulsating circulation.
