    For those who STILL need an idea of what the AGW agenda is all about please read their position papers.

    Fox News has the link to the papers so read up before they remove them!

    After a year of humiliating setbacks, United Nations Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and about 60 of his top lieutenants — the top brass of the entire U.N. system — spent their Labor Day weekend at a remote Austrian Alpine retreat, discussing ways to put their sprawling organization in charge of the world’s agenda.

    Details concerning the two-day, closed-door sessions in the comfortable village of Alpbach were closely guarded. Nonetheless, position papers for the meeting obtained by Fox News indicate that the topics included:

    -- how to restore “climate change” as a top global priority after the fiasco of last year’s Copenhagen summit;

    -- how to continue to try to make global redistribution of wealth the real basis of that climate agenda, and widen the discussion further to encompass the idea of “global public goods”;

    -- how to keep growing U.N. peacekeeping efforts into missions involved in the police, courts, legal systems and other aspects of strife-torn countries;

    -- how to capitalize on the global tide of migrants from poor nations to rich ones, to encompass a new “international migration governance framework”;

    -- how to make “clever” use of new technologies to deepen direct ties with what the U.N. calls “civil society,” meaning novel ways to bypass its member nation states and deal directly with constituencies that support U.N. agendas.

    As one underlying theme of the sessions, the top U.N. bosses seemed to be grappling often with how to cope with the pesky issue of national sovereignty, which — according to the position papers, anyway — continued to thwart many of their most ambitious schemes, especially when it comes to many different kinds of “global governance.”

    Not coincidentally, the conclave of bureaucrats also saw in “global governance” a greater role for themselves.

    As a position paper intended for their first group session put it, in the customary glutinous prose of the organization’s internal documents: “the U.N. should be able to take the lead in setting the global agenda, engage effectively with other multinational and regional organizations as well as civil society and non-state stakeholders, and transform itself into a tool to help implement the globally agreed objectives.”

    And for that to happen, the paper continues, “it will be necessary to deeply reflect on the substance of sovereignty, and accept that changes in our perceptions are a good indication of the direction we are going.”

    Hammering away at perceptions that nation-states cannot adequately meet global challenges, but the U.N. can, is a major theme of the position papers, which were assembled by a variety of U.N. think tanks, task forces and institutions, including the United Nations Development Program, and the U.N.’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

    What is so hard to understand about the AGW agenda.

    We have rejected their treaties and ideas so far for one reason and one reason only.

    Because they have been less of a tool to help the environment and more of a tool to transfer massive amounts of Wealth from the West to Developing nations.

    It was for that very reason that there was Bipartisan opposition to Kyoto.

    It exempted Countries like china and India and asked countries like the US to spend billions to not only lower our emissions but help them as well.

    The latest incarnation is calling for countries like the US to transfer 5% of their GDP to developing nations each year.

    It is about spreading the wealth not global warming.

    All the international politics aside, the idea of the US getting off petroleum is an anthema to many people here. In spite of the fact that producing our own energy for transportation on a national level and an individual level would be good for everybody except those in the big energy companies.

    Using energy alternatives to fossil fuels for the generation of electricity would make our nation a healthier place, and we would be desecrating far less of our countryside.

    For me it is not about getting off of Oil. It is about getting off of Foreign Oil. I don't care if it is Domestic Drilling, Solar power, or Scotty from Star Trek that does it for us. That is what I want.

    Domestic drilling cannot do it. We have 3% of the worlds reserves, and use 25% of the worlds oil.

    Um actually 3% refers to proven supplies. Proven supplies are supplies currently being drilled, or where we have done test wells and found oil but are not drilling it yet. Unproven reserves are all the ones we have not even searched yet. Estimates put our unproven supplies at FAR FAR more than 3%. Some say nearly as much oil as exists in the entire middle east.

    That said, I agree domestic drilling alone will not do it. I favor an all of the above approach.

    If it helps us get off foreign Oil I am for it.
