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.

Not for liberals, it seems. "WAAA MOMMY PROPAGANDA ABOUT THE BELGIAN CONGO WAAAA" is not an argument.

Zerohedge used to be about informed commentary about markets and geopolitics... Not sure how this racist drivel crept in, and perhaps the infection came with you... You may have been around slightly longer than Ghordius and myself, but unless you occasionally write enlightened pieces about economics, you're just noise polluting the signal.

And who wants to pass along market signals to signal polluters...fair point.

Sean7k's picture

Please add: sophistication and its' details are useless without their defining VALUES. Any Satanist claptrap can be sophisticated using your example. All bureaucracies qualify as sophisticated as well.

Cultures are measured by their values and their adherence to them.

Ghordius's picture

good comment. not so sure, though, if valid

a group is a group for whatever reasons it has to be a group

sometimes, it's not even them, but just that there are other groups around

take a small linguistic group as example. europe still has lots of them. their "value" is just that: they speak their language among themselves. why? because they learned it at home. and that's it

it can be an own culture without having own special and separate values, or it can even be sharing values with other cultures, which is the opposite of a culture war

Sean7k's picture

Well, that is just pathetic AND pedantic. I expect more from you Ghordius.
As if a small linguistic group has no other defining values? Really?
If you haven't got a good retort, then just leave it alone. I thought your original comment had some gas, though poorly written, but this is just sad.
Further, you need an example regarding the ability to have a culture without special and defining values. I find that statement to be without value whatsoever.
Finally, please explain how shite and sunni muslims can share a value without it becoming a culture war...

Ghordius's picture

what are then the specific values of a group that has no different values from the other groups except a detail that isn't a value? like an own language?

I have plenty of examples. One of them: Sorbians in Germany. completely and utterly undistinguishable from other Germans... except for their own languages, Upper Sorbian and Lower Sorbian. everything else, the same, in that region

and no, a religious schism is not necessarily a culture war. it can be, but it does not have to be

Sean7k's picture

It would appear the Sorbians have a culture afterall. Did you think I would not look?
In 1904, mainly thanks to the Sorbs’ contribution, the most important Sorbian cultural centre (the Sorbian House) was built in Bautzen. In 1912, the social and cultural organization of Lusatian Sorbs was created, the Domowina Institution - the union of Sorbian organizations. In 1919 it had 180,000 members. In 1920 Jan Skala set up a Sorbian party and in 1925 in Berlin, Skala started Kulturwille- the newspaper for the protection of national minorities in Germany. In 1920 the Sokol Movement was founded (youth movement and gymnastic organization). From 1933 the Nazi party started to repress the Sorbs. At that time the Nazis also dissolved the Sokol Movement and began to combat every sign of Sorbian culture. In 1937 activities of the Domowina Institution and other organizations were banned as anti-national. Sorbian clergymen and teachers were forcedly deported from Lusatia; Nazi German authorities confiscated the Sorbian House, other buildings and crops.
You can read more...but like many, you try to choose poor examples hopeing no one will investigate.
As for your last statement, you again need a VALID example. When is religion not culture? When is a schism not a cultural war?
I guess you are just bored this morning and hoped to hijack the thread? This is just not up to par Ghordius...

Ghordius's picture

imagine that: I just recently was there in Bautzen, and made a donation to one of their orgs

and... see? it was Hitler that made that group - for a short while - different from "proper Germans"

meanwhile, neither before the Nazi regime nor after that time were the Sorbs really different, culturally, from others in the region, with that exception: their own language

Sean7k's picture

So, you won't even read a little? It is hard to have a museum dedicated to your culture without a culture. Further, Hitler didn't make them, he attempted to erase them.
You see, most groups are not given names and categorized unless a distinction is worth making.
To have your own language requires enough separation from others to develope it. Thus, a culture.
You may not recognize it, but the Sorbs do.
Confusing assimilation into a dominant culture with not having a culture shows a remarkable lack of ...culture.

Ghordius's picture

I was not only in a Sorbian museum, I gave speeches in Sorbian museums. In Lower Sorbian, a language I learned from a family member

and no, I would not say to any Sorbian that their culture does only differ in language. and the Nazi experience did change that group

and? Sorbians do not have other values. they aren't Sorbian because of specific values that are only Sorbian. they don't choose to be that group because of values

Archduke's picture

don't get baited into base identity politics.
language and nationality are easily remixed.

all these constructs are unimportant. the only real
matter is of values and virtues economic and social.

this article is about the UN, Marxists and "Global Warming"

now, take Marxism. there, we would be allies, and both capitalist

or, take "Global Warming". there, we would be allies, and both skeptics

but so could a Chinese or Indian capitalist

but no, you have to equate white with capitalism, and stick to this idiocy because you are a White American Male that does not like to share common English labels to anyone, and fuck anybody that is not like you

you remind me of those CSA officers and politicians that insisted that no foreign help would ever be needed, and refused to even talk to Continental sympathizers because they were foreigners

seriously, you make me feel like a character that ought to have been included in "Gone With The Wind": the continental business partner of the embargo breaker. finding out that things, locally, constist in sticking heads in the sand and talk about fantasies

my goodness, the provinciality of the conversation, today. and this in a global issues article. you don't see it, eh?

Note that the word Capitalism comes from Latin, and has an English definition.That the whole concept came out of Europe, and not the rest of the world.


You see the people that create things do not lose their right to claim that said thing just because you or a bunch of Jews get their feelings hurt. You don't like anything I am saying here, then leave the site. It doesn't belong to you anyways, neither does our land, or our women. You want to be White, then join us and be White. If not, then get outcast and left behind.


Are you starting to understand it yet? We are running things now, and you either get in line or get crushed. No room for pussies anymore, because you faggots dropped the ball and let the enemy in while doing your "thing".


I don't give a shit if you look down upon me, you faggots have been doing that my entire life. Said I would never amount to anything, and all of that BS. All because I come from a warrior cast family. All that shit talking, and look at you guys now. Can't even organize against a few hundred of us trolling and disrupting all of you. Now imgaine if we actually organized.

Well, here I am, and I have accomplished more in my short lifetime than any of you will ever come close to. Everyone that has ever stood against the message I bring has fallen, and you appear to be the next person to step up to the guillotine.

NidStyles's picture

Sure, and when you can show me where I ever said he would do those things, then you can place your shitty decade old standards onto me.


9/11 was in 2001. How long are you going to beat that drum? Does it matter, yes, but we have more pressing matters these days. Particularly an invasion of illegals.

GoinFawr's picture

Simple solution for the 'illegal' problem: start aggressively charging folk who hire them, that would certainly have more of an effect than any stupid wall.

But then, that would shift some blame

GoinFawr's picture

"Finally, please explain how shite and sunni muslims can share a value without it becoming a culture war."

Is that a trick question, because: Canada?

What is the opposite of 'culture war' anyway cuz? Because that's what they seem to be honestly striving for from where I stand anyway.

In every way but fiscally, of course.

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

Oh, but we are.

America was founded on independence and freedom with those prizing those attributes the leaving all else behind. It is quite apparent that those left behind in Europe are statists, happily suckeling from the socialist tit. The simple fact that you would set passively while the EU took control of your nations, making them subserviant to an unaccountable central control...not to mention the complete dissolution of your very identity with importation of Islamic people only interested in suffocationg what is left of Europe....all just in the last few decades, tells us all we need to know about Europe today.

Ghordius's picture

what complete claptrap

it's identities, plural, for starters. French, German, Italian, etc. etc.

blah. do we have something like the FBI? no. I was just explaining in a different comment that even countries like Germany have one FBI-like affair per federated state

you don't want to speak about Europe-the-real-thing. you just want to speak about some fantasies about europe. based on your centralized, not-federal-anymore state

yes, in your head, you are alone. solipsism of the group sort, I'd say

Oldwood's picture

Why did Europeans LEAVE Europe?

IS not Europe considerably more socialist and for a longer time than America?

Has not your population gone into decline BECAUSE of progressive socialist ideals?

Do you not have large numbers of immigrants that are NOT integrated into your society...are NOT desiring to be Germans or French or any other identity beyond Islamic?

What future do you honestly believe awaits traditional Europe? Islamists have already INFORMED you of their intent yet your leaders INSIST that this is the ultimate expression of "your" values....really, are they "your" values or something implanted into you to induce you to submit to self destruction?

American progressives have been desperate to emulate the European model of socialist style government and control of its citizens, but Europe has been equally desperate to adopt what they see as American success....the powerful federal government and the importation of cheap foreign labor.

As is typical, seldom does emulating actually produce the same results. Where America has seen its federal government grow over many decades, Europe has attempted to impose it in but a few. And immigration, well that IS a problem. America has relied on an Hispanic population who were not hugely different in values and were hard workers, whereas Europe has imported a death cult only interested in sucking what remaining life still exists until it can impose its caliphate.

Ghordius's picture

look, the solution to your questions is there, in your own words:

"American progressives have been desperate to emulate the European model of socialist style government and control of its citizens..."

the emphasis on American progressives. we don't even have progressives like you have. and yes, we have socialists, which you don't have, but no, that does not make us socialist in toto

your government is humungous. your federal state is extreme. you even recently duplicated the setup with that "Homeland Security" stuff

meanwhile, you project and assume on things you do not really know much, except that they are part of your fight... against your progressives

fine. your fight, your enemies. but do look up what you are talking about when talking about us

we are neither what your American Progressives say we are nor what your American anti-Progressives say we are. they are both talking lots of rubbish... about us

oh, and poverty was the number one reason for europeans to go to the New World

Oldwood's picture

Admittedly, probably not many rich and well established Europeans left, but then why would they if profiting from the system in place. Many people came to America that were not dirt poor. It wasn't exactly cheap to sail half way around the world and get a new start...especially when they were not coming to a welfare state.

As far as progressives are concerned, I'm glad you think you are special and your future is bright. Delusion has always been a necessary component in socialist utopias. All that is important is to believe in what you do, which is the role of indoctrination after all.

I'm always looking for trajectories. America's is very confused at the moment, but Europe's sure appears pretty clear. I know locals who are German, one in particular who's father still lives there. Apparently the people are largely prevented from speaking out about the rise in crime as they are considered racist Nazis. Germany is our test case for the progressive ideals that tell you that abandoning your traditional cultures,  giving deference to Islamic ones, represents your values, and I still ask,,,ARE THESE YOUR VALUES? Tolerance to the point of suicide?

Details, sophistication, and culture don't mean squat when they are trying to kill you gman.  That stuff is all just nice decoration that tends to burn in the onslaught.  Just see how Russian culture was frozen for over a half century while the communists murdered the people and plundered the wealth.  The UN is just more of the same old song and dance with new notes and different color shoes.

'Hey, didya see what they wrote on that bomb?'

'Nope.  It exploded and killed me.'

Details, details...

Good fences make for good neighbors.

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

Lack of sophistication is not the current problem. 

The problem is much bigger than mere details.

You can sit around and contemplate the details.

We're going to act.

 Zimbabwe grabbed the land, chasing off the white farmers or killing them, and gave the lands to Mugabe's cronnies. What was an exporting country now can't feed itself.  Die you fuckers.

Ghordius's picture


I sometimes wondered if the UK would invade Zimbabwe for that

and then, I wondered how the ZH comments about that would be

meanwhile Mugabe became a crony of China, so it's too late for such things

techpriest's picture

And since he sold the country out to China, the Chinese will have no qualms easing their population burden by shipping millions of people in, and taking full control.

Mugabe will be dead by then so I doubt he'll care. Such is the legacy of 20th century "revolutionaries."

And that is so true. They started with colleges and universities decades ago and trickled it into high schools down to elementary. Say the lie enogh times and it becomes true.

The UN is the Scarlet colored wild beast.



The scarlet-colored beast, described in Revelation chapter 17, is a symbol of the organization whose purpose is to unite and represent the nations of the world. It first existed as the League of Nations and is now the United Nations.

Keys to identifying the scarlet-colored beast
  1. A political entity. The scarlet-colored beast has “seven heads” that are said to represent “seven mountains” and “seven kings,” or ruling powers. (Revelation 17:9, 10) Mountains and beasts are used in the Bible as symbols of governments.—Jeremiah 51:24, 25; Daniel 2:44, 45; 7:17, 23.

  2. A likeness of the worldwide political system. The scarlet-colored beast resembles the seven-headed beast of Revelation chapter 13, which represents the worldwide political system. Both beasts have seven heads, ten horns, and blasphemous names. (Revelation 13:1; 17:3) These similarities are too striking to be a coincidence. The scarlet-colored beast is an image, or likeness, of the worldwide political system.—Revelation 13:15.

  3. Power from other rulerships. The scarlet-colored beast “springs from,” or owes its existence to, other ruling forces.—Revelation 17:11, 17.

  4. Linked with religion. Babylon the Great, the world’s collective body of false religions, sits on the scarlet-colored beast, showing that the beast is influenced by religious groups.—Revelation 17:3-5.

  5. Dishonors God. The beast is “full of blasphemous names.”—Revelation 17:3.

  6. Temporarily inactive. The scarlet-colored beast would be in “the abyss,” * or inactive, for a time but would rise again.—Revelation 17:8.

Bible prophecy fulfilled

Consider how the United Nations and its predecessor, the League of Nations, have fulfilled the Bible’s prophecy of the scarlet-colored beast.

  1. A political entity. The United Nations supports the political system by upholding “the sovereign equality of all its Members.” *

  2. A likeness of the worldwide political system. In 2011, the United Nations added its 193rd member state. Thus, it claims to represent the vast majority of nations and peoples in the world.

  3. Power from other rulerships. The United Nations owes its existence to its member nations and has only as much power and authority as they grant to it.

  4. Linked with religion. Both the League of Nations and the United Nations have consistently received the backing of the world’s religions. *

  5. Dishonors God. The United Nations was established “to maintain international peace and security.” * While this goal might seem to be praiseworthy, the UN actually dishonors God by claiming to do what he has said only his Kingdom will accomplish.—Psalm 46:9;Daniel 2:44.

  6. Temporarily inactive. The League of Nations, which was formed shortly after World War I to maintain peace, was unable to prevent international aggression. It ceased to function when World War II began in 1939. In 1945, after World War II ended, the United Nations was formed. Its purposes, methods, and structure closely resemble those of the League of Nations.

The UN will be used by Jehovah to destroy Babylon the Great, the world empire of false religion.. it occurs when the UN says,

1 Thess 5:2 For you yourselves know very well that Jehovah’s* day+ is coming exactly as a thief in the night.+  Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them,+ just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape.  But you, brothers, you are not in darkness, so that the day should overtake you as it would thieves, 


Rev 17: 12 “The ten horns that you saw mean ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they do receive authority as kings for one hour with the wild beast. 13  These have one thought, so they give their power and authority to the wild beast. 14  These will battle with the Lamb,+ but because he is Lord of lords and King of kings,+ the Lamb will conquer them.+ Also, those with him who are called and chosen and faithful will do so.”+ 15  He said to me: “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues.*+ 16  And the ten horns+ that you saw and the wild beast,+ these will hate the prostitute+ and will make her devastated and naked, and they will eat up her flesh and completely burn her with fire.+ 17  For God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought,+ yes, to carry out their one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast,+ until the words of God will have been accomplished. 18  And the woman+ whom you saw means the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.”

The wild beast with seven heads introduced at Revelation 13:1represents the worldwide political system.

Even though nations may agree on few things, they unite in their determination to maintain their authority rather than submit to the rule of God’s Kingdom. (Psalm 2:2) They will also join forces to battle God’s armies commanded by Jesus Christ at Armageddon, but this war will result in the nations being destroyed.—Revelation 16:14, 16; 19:19, 20.

“Ten horns and seven heads”

Certain numbers are used symbolically in the Bible. For example, ten and seven represent completeness. The key to understanding the specific meaning of the “ten horns and seven heads” of the beast of Revelation chapter 13 is an “image of the wild beast” identified later in Revelation—a bright-red beast that has seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 13:1, 14, 15; 17:3) The Bible says that the seven heads of this red beast mean “seven kings,” or governments.—Revelation 17:9, 10.

Likewise, the seven heads of the beast of Revelation 13:1 represent seven governments: the primary political powers that have dominated through history and have taken the lead in oppressing God’s people—Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and Anglo-America. If we conclude that the ten horns represent all sovereign states, small and large, then the diadem, or crown, on each horn shows that each nation rules concurrently with the primary political power of the time.
