The Real Goal of Green Politics

I followed a drudge link to a story about a speech given by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez at the Copenhagen conference. In it, he said socialism “seeks to help all people” while “capitalism is the road to hell.” He proposed that the ”way to save the planet” is to “fight against capitalism and make it obey us.” What was the reaction from the assembled international community? He got a standing ovation, of course.

Just as national policies based on climate change seek to redistribute wealth and expand the size and scope of government at the expense of private businesses and citizens, international policies seek to redistribute wealth globally and expand the size and scope of international powers at the expense of national sovereignty. Unfortunately, the current Congress and President are supportive of these ideas at both levels.

Meanwhile, the “science” validating man-made global warming has been discredited. The core group of "scientists" that have shaped the IPCC position have been exposed as frauds. Predictably, however, now that they are so close to their goal of reshaping society and crippling the economic superpowers, world leaders are not going to let a little thing like facts get in the way.

Do we need any further proof that the end goal of the green movement has more to do with politics than science?
