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.

The Marxists are working very hard to bring about the historically inevitable collapse of capitalism.

Well the "Commonwealth Club" radio program out of San Fag was doing a bit on "Climate Change" with heads of Exxon Mobile and Shell and all those dicks. Last week it was Janet Yellen.

Anyway, it's always about "climate change" and never about what "they" want. People are so stupid. They lap this shit up and ask for more.

"Agenda Is Really About Destroying Capitalism." Almost that exact quote was used in the Documentary "The Changing Climate of Global Warming." Here is the video clip.



The other aspect is that this "science" is so laughable, they can't even rig experiments to make their point. This article highlights how they use junk science to make their case.

If this "science" was every taken to court, every climate "scientist" would be behind bars for defrauding the US Government

Additionally, the unprofessional behavior of these climate "scientists" would get them fired in any other profession. They act as if the law doesn't apply to them.

BTW, killing the host is a very very very bad idea, the cost of fighting this Quixotic war on climate change is measured in the multiples of world GDP.

Under Capitalism we also had Child Labor, 6 day 12 hour work weeks, high worker fatalities...

The 40 hour work week was an invention of organized labor.

Before capitalism, humans made their living by foraging as hunter-gatherers.

Under Capitalism we also had Child Labor, 6 day 12 hour work weeks, high worker fatalities...

Foragers had 2 or 3 hour workdays, but had an average life span of 20 or 25 years and often died of starvation.

Since there are no reliable records on how many foragers were trampled by woolly mammoths, eaten by saber-tooth tigers, or speared by their fellow primitives in a hunting scrum, there is no way to prove that capitalism results in higher "worker" fatalities.

With a title like this the article appears like your typical click-and-bait internet rubbish, and unfortunately it reads like it too. This is hyperbolic framing of a much less insidious message, namely that since capitalism requires infinite expansion, inifinite consumption and thus infinite pollution and destruction of resources that are the exact opposite being finite, any reasonable rational person would think maybe it is time to EVOLVE capitalism into something better.


Evolution is not the same as destruction, although it does involve leaving some elements of a system, biological or social, to history's dustbin and keeping other elements for the new improved model. That is exactly what is been discussed here by the UN.


Second, the agenda is NOT hidden. The spokeperson was being about as transparent as one could wish. Third, it does not entail destroying anyone's livlihood, it means reproducing our livlihoods in a better way. History is the history of growth change evolution of all things.


Capitalism is NOT THE END OF HISTORY folks. Get with the program or get left behind!
