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

Tyler Durden's picture

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.

We are presently condemned to live in dysfunctional mixed economies.

No system is perfect but it's widely acknowledged by fair-minded, non-Marxist economists tha the MIXED ECONOMIC model offers the best compromise between competing systems. At the extremes of pure Capitalism and pure Marxism we have unfair, impractical, deeply flawed, deeply cruel systems that would make life on Earth a nightmare -- except for the few at the top of their respective pyramids.

Yes, there are monoplies, oligopolies, oligarchs etc but that's not the fault of the Mixed Economy. These are due to the incompetence or corruption (or both) of the governing political class. Governments need to not just regulate but implement and enforce regulations. Monopolies are illegal in most developed countries. So, why do they still exist??

Sorry UN. We can't supply you with hundreds of thousands of tons of free grains for the needy nations.  We are taking all our 500hp John Deere harvesters off-line and replacing them with mules to cut our carbon footprint for you. Starve you fuckers.  

Support our farmers who have fed the world for decades.

Oldwood's picture

There is a major disconnect here. We have been told for decades that population growth is our enemy and have successfully been indoctrinated to produce a negative population growth. Meanwhile we have spent billions of dollars to save lives in third world countries who have out of control birth rates along with NO means of sustaining themselves. Now we are told that capitalism is our enemy and that because our birth rates have declined that we must import these third-worlders into our societies to supplement our work forces and GENETICS. 


We are being indoctrinated to eliminate ourselves and everything that our cultures have produced, and worst of all they are using the spoils of our success to destroy us. These rich elitist fucks, wallowing in their incredible wealth and privilege, passing judgment upon us...the very people who have rewarded them so richly.

Communism in all of its evil flavours took a setback and the reds became watermellons, green on the outside.

It was always the same prescription, all in the name of "science".  Therefore, those couldn't have been the cause.

Well put. Had this exact conversation the other night. Per the left the US is a polluting cesspool sucking the world dry of resources and killing Mother Earth...but adding millions of poor immigrants into the population pool that will add to the misery of the earth is ok. Why aren't they working to find a way to stay where they are and only consume a fraction of the resources?

There clearly is a goal here that is more than helping immigrants or saving the earth.

That can only happen when you and him are in the same ring.

Thus, the migratory togetherness.

A few thousand years ago there was a civilization that lived in the middle of the Mediterranean. The produced nothing and worshiped the bull. They sacrificed children to the altar of their god and prayed for greater bounty. By nature of the location of their empire, they controlled the trade routes and took a cut of everything that passed through the territory. Much of the true history was lost when the great volcano erupted and destroyed the entire island they lived on. The surviving refugees were scattered all over the rest of the Mediterranean, many of them settling in Egypt.

These people were universally hated, but maybe they controlled the means of trade, or universal currency, and were too powerful for one nation to destroy, for it would disrupt the entire economy of the known world at the time.

If refugees from a nation you hated showed up at your door, what would you do? The Egyptians most likely took the survivors but made them slaves as punishment for what the people had done.

Some time later one of the slaves asked a Pharaoh to let his people go. Not really having a home they wandered around the desert hatching a plot to take back the power they once had. For the next few thousand years they put that plot in motion, controlling the means of trade through their "religion". In private worshiping the bull, the control of money, and sacrificing children to the altar of their god.

All of human history is the same story played out over and over and over.

Feudalism requires Serfs bound to minimal  existence so they have no flexibility to act - the immigration policy is part of that plan to flood the markets for cheap ever expanding labor - illegal and legal - while at the same time reducing the demand for labor with regulations and costs of various descriptions

Exactly what exists now with NAFTA.

And do you know what is worse? We actually paid taxes that funded all these think tanks. Rich people like Soros, Clinton, etc. not only avoid taxation, but they own the tax exempt organizations.

In other words, Why would they think they could not get away with the climate change hoax on us, when we actually paid for them to develop every stepping stone? As you mentioned we sacrificed much more than even those tax dollars/work product. We gave up our free will, and the free will of the children, including those not born. That is why they love immigrants and their children so much. They can start the cycle all over again, using the same locally owned "institutions"

Lazy? yes. Greedy? yes. Pure Evil? yes. Dumb? no.

No, no, no! Send this to The Don immediately. We would be better out.

Did Figueres explain with what they intend to replace capitalism? As we have already seen demonstrated, a managed economy will always be managed badly and corruptly.

And what's with the Code Purple outfit?

I've seen all sorts of public figures wearing purple ties and shirts, ever She did.

Some kind of a Flag?

AmericanFUPAcabra's picture

It's called 'the purple revolution' her and bill wore it when they conceded. and the day after shit started hitting the fan with protests and the like. also thats about when soros kicked his shenanigans into high gear. (its called a color revolution, see orange revolution)

Funny that most people think these airport protests and womens marches were organic. Sorry, they weren't, they were hatched and organized on social media by more than 50 organizations many of them with ties to Soros' Open Society Foundation. The very same that paid for professional signs and bussed around protesters when they were trying to whip up race riots last summer. Apparently it is hard for the average person to connect the dots. Bleating and babbling he fell on his neck with a screammmmmm

The Global Warming Hoax is a hidden tax on the middle class for energy they need, just as Obama's Obamacare is really a tax in disguise on health care that people need.


Democrats, the Clintons, Obamas, Kaines, Schumers, whoopis, Charlie Roses, Stepanopoluoses, Todds, Acostas, etc, who force this stuff on Americans, have never been more sinister and vile.

Capitalism = White culture.


They already removed our high class cultures from us, and stripped us into nothing more than economic yard equipment with some pretense of being capable of more, while being hindered by everything else in the economy.


Basically, it's intended to be this way, so that the Whites can die and leave the non-Whites everything. It's being conquered without the doing the conquering. Almost like they have done this before....


We know they have done this before, because that is how we ended up with Islam.

Ghordius's picture

are you writing what Capitalism is or how it's enemies approach it?

as a reminder, capitalism isn't something purely American. meanwhile, that "white culture" thing is very much a culture war item... in the US. and never mind Islam, another thing that becomes a subordinated item of that specific US culture war

dear American Cousins, you are not alone on this planet, you know?

by all means, fight your fight of choice. but stop dragging everything else into it. the fact that American Whites have issues, including demographic ones, is not the same as having a religious war all over the globe, or starting about capitalism, and so on

you, for example, have a political flag as avatar. do you understand that flag? do you care what it means? last time I asked, you did not

you don't care much about details. that's your weakness, believe it or not

culture is sophistication, and sophistication is all about details, and care for them

TuPhat's picture

You have a reading comprehension problem.

Ghordius's picture

it might be that "Capitalism = White Culture" makes sense... to you

it is, nevertheless, something that in my opinion, makes any non-American go "Eh? What?"

the question here is if ZeroHedge is supposed to be an American White Male Issues blog or not

I think there are enough of them, already catering for this specialized public

NidStyles's picture

It makes sense to us, because we are White and understand what being White means. If you're going to say you're White, you should start working on that understanding of what being White means. If you're not White, you will never truly understand what being White means to us.


If that post made no sense to you, then you are hopeless lost in any conversation that will play out in the future about where you belong in our societies. My suggestion is for you to take some time off the internet to learn about White culture, and what it means to us, and why we will not allow anyone to harm it or destroy it.


We don't care if you think there are enough catering to us. Zerohedge is a White man's site. It always has been. It always will be. If you don't like us, then get the fuck out already.We aren't going anywhere, because this is ours.


All you degenerates and non-Whites pushed us into the corner, so you will get the response you apparently wanted from us.


My favorite idiom: Make your peace, or it will be made for you. ~Me

Ghordius's picture

now, this comment I understand

and I am white... while I do not necessarily understand what being white means... to you

and you know why? because I do not have blacks around me, for starters

meanwhile, I traveled quite a lot in Africa, and could tell you what it means to be white in black Africa...

... which is still not necessarily the same as your situation

and no, neither I nor any group to which I belong pushed you in a corner

Tallest Skil's picture

>>I traveled quite a lot in Africa, and could tell you what it means to be white in black Africa...

It means being raped to death if you're a woman and necklaced if you're a man. All African nations exist today thanks to whites and whites alone. Out of the goodness of our hearts (not really; we were forced), we not only left the continent (our continent, which we justly conquered and built and created), but left the natives alive.

Wrong thing to do, but mistakes can be fixed.

Ghordius's picture

you seriously believe that? that raped/necklaced stuff?

besides, what is this "necklaced" stuff?

NidStyles's picture

Then you aren't White.


If you can't talk to another White person about what being White means, then you have never truly been White.



Tallest Skil's picture

>>you seriously believe that?

Truth is not a matter of belief. It's true regardless of if you believe it happens or not.

>>besides, what is this "necklaced" stuff?

If you're too stupid to do research on a topic you don't understand, it kind of undermines your ability to denounce it, doesn't it?
