U.N. Official Admits Global Warming Agenda Is Really About Destroying Capitalism

Submitted by Martin Armstrong via ArmstrongEconomics.com,

A shocking statement was made by a United Nations official Christiana Figueres at a news conference in Brussels.

Figueres admitted that the Global Warming conspiracy set by the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, of which she is the executive secretary, has a goal not of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism. She said very casually:

“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 even restated that goal ensuring it was not a mistake:

“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.”

I was invited to a major political dinner in Washington with the former Chairman of Temple University since I advised the University with respect to its portfolio. We were seated at one of those round tables with ten people. Because we were invited from a university, they placed us with the heads of the various environmental groups. They assumed they were in friendly company and began speaking freely. Dick Fox, my friend, began to lead them on to get the truth behind their movement. Lo and behold, they too admitted it was not about the environment, but to reduce population growth. Dick then asked them, “Whose grandchild are we trying to prevent from being born? Your’s or mine?

All of these movements seem to have a hidden agenda that the press helps to misrepresent all the time. One must wonder, at what point will the press realize they are destroying their own future?

Investors.com reminds Figueres that the only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.

U.N. Official Admits




Did you hear we're cutting your money?


We are......I hear I'm getting a Lamborghini with the savings.


Pretty cool!

Lies, Lies, Lies - every time the Marxist Globlalist VERMIN open their mouth, they speak their native language of revolution, deception & death. International Ecco-Socialism must be EXTERMINATED.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do,...http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

Don't let DJT see this - another reason to defund the UN.

I've been saying this for years. Once again, the conspiracy theorists are correct.

pods's picture

It was, is, and always will be about control.  Nothing to do with the environment.  I care more about the damn environment than they do. I don't jet around the world eating baby livers and condor eggs.  These globalists must burn.

I really hope that Trump goes isolationist.  I have had enough of being a part of the "world community."

We need to break their grip on money. That is the only thing that will do it. They will be powerless if their friends cannot conjure up money to implement their agenda.

well this is refreshing.

i read this site MANY times a day.

so does Alex Jones and crew. I will wager that this will feature in his broadcast today, as it should.

He has been saying exactly this, and more, for twenty years now. And has been right in almost everything he reports.

If anyone has missed the recent Joe Rogan Podcast with Alex they have missed a lot.

Once again, his "whacky" theories have proved spot on. I'm not surprised even a little bit.

You fucking idiots.

Clearly if climate change is real certain people will try to use it for their gain. This does not make it less real.

The arctic is very warm. Unnaturally warm. And it is warming quicker and quicker and when it gets real warm it will start to melt methane stores. And then "The Road" will look like a children's book.

Interesting choice of color (purple), at least they make it easier to spot socialists now these days.


BTW Adam Smith's invisible hand has been around a hell of alot longer than 150 years too!

Speaking of the color purple, I looked at ZH posts from the 29th through yesterday to look for articles where the color purple was noticeable, either in the background, as clothing, or as a focal point in the picture (trying to ignore stock pics ZH uses for general articles, and things like charts and graphs).

These are the articles I found:


Notice the names there? Podesta, Clinton, Merkel, Schmidt, May, Le Pen, Putin, Trump and Conway. Yellen and the Iranian president are also featured but not mentioned. Several of them either wear purple clothing (Clinton has a full dress) or they wear purple ties, including Trump. Both of the most recent mass attacks - the latest Munich one, and the Quebec shooting - feature purple prominently.

What really stood out to me most is how every major political figure I mentioned above always stands in front of a purple background when giving speeches. Is this purposeful? Or is it simply something that is done to enhance contrast for the camera, or some other camera reason? Anyway, I found it interesting, indeed.

From the mouth of a  commie globalist babe...lol.

I've gotta say I'm not shocked at the timing what with all the populism sweeping the globe,  this may be the defining moment  ;-)

The title is very misleading —out of context— because Christian Figueres is an anthropologist (scientist) that understands that raising temperature and pollution are caused by humans. Figueres is a supporter of Paris Accord, and she lobbies nations to try to comply.

Her blind spot is that she’s part of problem, meaning, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” ? Upton Sinclair

How about: The populace has been sufficiently dumbed down to the point of not understanding economic development.

FFS, "economic development", people.  Capitalism has never been a model of "economic development".  Capitalism's model of "economic development" is the absence of any model. (i.e. "The magic of the marketplace.")  So, "changing the model of economic development" in this case almost certainly means moving away from industrialization.  I really don't think the leap to "environmentalism is the plot to destroy capitalism" is intellectually honest.  You're blue-pilling me on this one ZH.

The title is misleading?...

“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.”

...well, you may think so but she made it quite clear what the hell the UN (and others) have been up to. And just who do you think the "we" and "ourselves" are in that statement Escrava?

Let me answer that for you, the "we" is them and the "ourselves" is not us. Just what the hell is it with you progs that you feel the need to be led around by the nose by unelected global bureaucrats and told by them what to do and when to do it?

Your screen name is fitting...you are a slave.

We’re all slaves.

The color purple represents Saturn.  Royalty wear it to show their allegiance and partnership with the power/entity that is connected to Saturn.  The rabbit hole is very deep my friend.

Clearly you haven't seen the 'Joe Fresh 2017 Spring Collection'. It's fabulous.

I've been down the rabbit hole friend, and while I was down there sifting the cold damp soil, you and your fucking friends took over the planet.

Subversion, diversion. Why don't you scamper on down, I'll catch up later.

Indeed, NONE of the links work because

they are all fakes, close resemblances of past real ZH headlines, slightly modified to appear as real but are in essence,

FAKE NEWS, misleading at best, driving some agenda, or being driven by one.

Good try, but Gotcha'

Purple is color of Neptune/Pisces which is the God box. It rules truth, subverted it is deception.

Satan the father lies.

Everything they are doing is subverted.

The are the liars

They are the Nazis

They are the oppressors

They silence others

They are ruled by Saturn, Saturn is in Sagittarius now the house of religion...Satanism.

Pluto is in Saturn's sign Capricorn...death gasp for them.

They are trying to play God taking the and color of God

Whore of Babylon wearing purple gold and scarlet

They have the Pope on their team.

Oh please, don't be such a fucktard! The Earth has been through lots of global warming and ice ages. It's part of the longer, millenia cycles of climate change. We couldn't stop it if we wanted to. Just as we couldn't  have stopped the last Ice Age.  Sure warming has increased a tad due to man-made influences, but would have happened anyway. Even if we had never discovered the uses for oil.  Don't be a sheep. Follow the money.

Man will not regulate the Earth; the Earth will regulate Man. The only alternative to unfettered growth is the Borg. Do we want to become the Borg? To become assimilated into a hive-like worldwide collective? This is the stuff of nightmares.

surely, if we just dig a little deeper we could get an ice-core sample from the big bang and then we would know for sure just how much CO2 there was 13 billion years ago.

Al Gore: Earth's Interior 'Extremely Hot, Several Million Degrees'...

SixIsNinE's picture

yes, of course - humans have dug the mighty depth of 8 miles - and yes, indeed, it was quite hot.  350 degrees F.

So, being of the intelligence of the Algore, one must assume correctly that several million degrees further into the interior is naturally the correct answer.

Those of us who are prepared will be fine, the leeching leftists will die. Any "idiot" can see it has nothing to do with man, the arctic has been melting for how many 10's of thousands of years? Why have the elites been going to Antarctica? Its coming, i'll give you that...

If we ever get to "The Road" it will be due to the bankers, not the climate.

I would argue with your link, but I don't argue about religion.

More likely resource depletion will set many onto the path of "The Road". Bankers will pull every trick in the book to delay their own road trip.

Sure there will always be more than one way to skin a cat, but by the time religions get around to it 'truth' has long since given up and gone for a pint, whereas FS's link was all verifiable fact,

so I would be fascinated to see how you rationalize your religious denial of the facts.




pods's picture

FS's link is all facts eh?

" The climate of the Arctic is known to oscillate wildly, but scientists say this warmth is so extreme that humans surely have their hands in it and may well be changing how it operates."

That is what is called an OPINION. The word "surely" has no business in science.  I would be fired if I wrote "surely" in a scientific conclusion.

"Their simulations predict some places in the high Arctic will rise over 50 degrees above normal."

Sounds like that is a theory to me. An unproven theory at that.

"Because data is sparse in this region....."

Those would be factual measurements. Sparse. Prone to wild error swings due to smaller sample sizes.

"Climate scientists say there is no single cause for the remarkable warmth, but posit it is due to natural variations in the Arctic climate superimposed on a long-term warming trend resulting from human activity."

Even those involved are hedging.

I could go on, but I have already proven that it is unwise to argue with idiots on the internet.  The article has more to do with WEATHER than CLIMATE, and they say as much in the story:

"A series of storms tracking from the south has led to repeated influx of warm air and ocean waters into the region,” he said. Such an influx is predicted next week."


When I said "religion" I meant the religion of Climate Change, because it is based upon BELIEFS, not facts.  Just like other religions.
