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.

I would amend that to say the real enemy then is the general population that because they don't care enough to be informed of the truth and that they then also lose vigilance, elect narcissists to positions of power, whereupon these evil people legislate a path leading to the destruction of humanity.

Global warming sycophants are more interested in using the environmental movement as a vehicle for wealth redistribution. Socialism, communism, fascism....are all friends to this movement. Slavery redefined through burdensome taxation. It's all about the money. Follow the trail.....

Christiana Figueres: he was clearly bullied as an fugly guy as a child; now as a powerfull social misfit he wants revenge! (sex change did not work well)

I've been saying this for years, thank you for my vindication!!  FUCK YOU Global Warming liars and sycophants!!  Burn in hell where you belong.

Not even news. Marxist authoritarian twats have been at this for decades.

Please take a look at these 2 announcements from NASA.  

The first in 2012 where NASA states that magnetic pole reversal is something that has happened many times in history.

Then last year, MSM reports that NASA scientists say that magnetic pole reversal is being caused by global warming.



hardcleareye's picture

They are not talking about magnetic pole reversals... they are talking about the tilt of the earth.. for example with current tilt of the earth is what gives us the seasons....  summer, autumn, winter... (long nights and short days)... spring.. if the tilt increases or decreases you change the length of these seasons.

The "wobble of the pole/axis of rotation" is in essence it is a function of the mass of ice and snow on the north and south poles (change with melt, seasons etc), think the wheel weights on your tires and the effect of the balance of said tires as they rotate.....

I did not see Surendra Adhikari and Erik Ivins discuss the a "flipping of the magnetic poles (where the compass points)"...  their paper is about the polar axis wobble... and climate change.

Thank you for the links, I enjoyed the read.


New_Meat's picture

yep, the mass of ice+snow at the north pole changes with the melt).

put some ice cubes into a glass of water, come back after they melt, 'splain that.

I am toying with the idea of seeking a grant to study why global warming is causing so many meteors lately.

So long as Air and Water Pollution and the impact on Climate from GHG Emissions are treated as EXTERNALITIES in any economic decision making, then sure, trying to stop Global Warming means trying to stop Capitalism in it's current form.


Not sure what the best alternative is, but I think people need to understand that +2% Real GDP forever on a Planet whose resources grow at a ZERO real rate is sort of a Dead End.

numapepi's picture

in 1940 the world was finite, but today our access to space is just at the cusp. We stand at the precipice of unlimited resources.

That would be nice.  Only thing I don't understand is, why Mars instead of the Moon?  Mars isn't that much bigger than the Moon, and the Moon is so much closer.

Infinite growth in a finite world.... 

ZH has become a Breitbart tool...

Yes on the first.  But the second does not follow from the first.

Concur it was not a "logic statement"

Two separate statements.

Infinite growth in an infinite universe...

There, fixed it for you...

Breitbart seems pretty much dead center to me.  I  have had TV tuned off for 15 years and don't allow advertising or absurd media photons to hit my retinas.  Just looking at the real world it is starting toook like a zombie apocalypse.  I think this is more relevant to economics than you think.

Climate change, or global warming, or whatever they decide to call it, was devised to transfer wealth from the many (us), to the few (the govenrment bureaucrats).

The trillions of dollars collected annually from citizens, corporations, and nations, is mind boggling.


If Trump somehow, someday says he's a believer in climate change, it's all over for us.

silverer's picture

From what I've heard, Trump wants to be onboard with the truth. From there, reasonable measures can be taken to deal with reasonable threats. And I agree. If you look at what they propose to deal with climate change, they propose a tax. How in the hell does taxing CO2 reduce it? Why can't they DIRECTLY legislate steps to reduce it, no tax is needed.

My brother in law is a Climate Scientist, got a PHD and even goes to those IPCC meetings.


So I'm supposed to believe that he is part of a global conspiracy of scientists out to dupe the world to get more funding or destroy capitalism?





mary mary's picture

What does your brother in law say?  And it is easier to me to read things which are single spaced.

northern vigor's picture

Do you live in his basement also? 

silverer's picture

You're not making too much sense with your statement. Nobody is taking your brother to task for anything, right or wrong. If your brother is hired to do a job to collect information or to analyze data, and does his job, what's a "conspiracy" have to do with it? Are you taking it personally that your brother is being charged as a "conspirator"? Is a farmer that supplies corn to food processor that then supplies military rations a warmonger? Especially if that farmer has no idea where the corn is going? Cattle feed? Corn flakes? So calm down, your brother has a right to be pissed as well if his work was mis-used or misinterpreted.

northern vigor's picture

"Climate scientist" is another term for..."here is the results we want, your job is to make some numbers up".

innertrader's picture

KEEP YOUR HEAD in the sand, you're better off and so is your brain washed brother in law.  After all, your family phd had to be brain washed to get the "so called" job!  I have a question for you.  What has the weather been like for the last 2 Billion years on Mother Earth?  Second, if you are really serious about the "climate", why hasn't there been any major news about the damage done by the melting down nuclear reactor in Japan???  THE WHOLE CLIMATE ISSUE IS A NWO ATTACK!!!  WAKE UP!!!

innertrader's picture

JUST IN:  02/03/17


A record radiation level has been detected inside the No. 2 reactor at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, with the estimated reading of up to 530 sieverts per hour, the plant operator said Thursday.

The reading means a person could die from even brief exposure, highlighting the difficulties ahead as the government and Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. grope their way toward dismantling all three reactors that melted down in the March 2011 nuclear disaster.

The plant operator also announced that based on an image analysis, a 1-square-meter hole has been found on a metal grating beneath the reactor pressure vessel, likely caused by melted nuclear fuel that fell through the vessel.

The new radiation level, described by some experts as “unimaginable,” far exceeds 73 sieverts per hour, the previously highest radiation reading monitored in the interior of the reactor.



Where is your phd concerning this bit of info?



pipes's picture

Believe what you want...but it's clear to any obective observer what is going on.

Lies, jiggering data, and false claims of consensus does not equal truth.

Consistently FAILED models shine the light on deliberate deception.

Like so many other cultists, the climate ones are dead in the water...they just haven't accepted it yet.

King of Ruperts Land's picture


"Climate science" is NOT a true science.  True science is done objectively in an unbiased way to determine truth.   Climate "science" is multi agenda dogma with a pseudo scientific priesthood guarding all data and results to ensure the predetermined outcome and use it to push a global political agenda.


It is polluting humanities consciousness with a viral sickness that may prove fatal.


I call them the cult of the rock.  "Save the planet" which is just a rock.  They are against carbon, which is what all life is made of.  They want to get rid of carbon, bury it, sterilize the planet.  They are a death cult.


artichoke's picture

There are some real scientists who opine on climate.  Physical scientists, theoretical physicists, Nobel prize winners (for science not politics), etc.


And EVERY ONE of them says this "climate science" bullshit is indeed bullshit.


It's rather annoying for the left, all these real geniuses calling them out, but they just charge ahead ...

I'm sure your brother in law believes some of the prevailing climate theories, but that doesn't make them correct. As Max Planck famously said, "Science advances one funeral at a time." The sad truth is that in science, it's a career limiting idea to swim upstream. Galileo Galilei was convicted of heresy. More recently (1998), Dr Andrew Wakefield was steamrolled by big pharma and their allies for speaking some truth about vaccines and autism. Wakefield was absolutely correct and many doctors are now finally, 19 years later, rallying to his defense, but the vaccine agenda is still marching forward. Hopefully President Trump will help put the brakes on that scientific tyranny.

True or false, right or wrong, there is zero doubt that climate change is being used to advance a world government agenda. You need a crisis to get people to accept dissolving their national sovereignty. It's no secret that the elite globalists (Gates, Rockefeller, Rothschilds, Soros, et al) are rallying around the climate flagpole to advance this. That doesn't make the climate theory wrong, but it puts a lot of political pressure backed by vast sums of money on scientists to focus on supporting data and to ignore any facts that don't quite fit.

Ask yourself how many PhDs wrote papers supporting the idea that cholesterol is bad for the heart hypothesis. 50,000? ... 100,000?  That little myth was very good for the processed food industry and they used their vast sums of money and political pressure to give anyone who spoke against it the Andrew Wakefield treatment. Well, finally that idea was debunked and the government dietary guidelines now quietly classify cholesterol as "not a nutrient of concern", but to this day the US Gov has never formally admitted they were wrong.

It is not "shocking" news. Figueres stated this was the UN plan over two years ago. 

What is shocking is that not everyone knows it. 

silverer's picture

Yes, agreed. The real culprit being the mainstream media, which many have become aware of as being downright evil in their intent.

Wow, this is a fake news high!  She wants to transform the economic model.  Probably so it is less destructive..

This bitch is correct. The marxist, atheist Jews have had this plan going for the past 150+. Destroy America, and Europe's Middle-Class through progressive taxation, bring in more welfare recipients to destroy Christianity, Wester Culture, and History. Judaism is the complete opposite of Christianity! Hitler was right!

She just did everyone a great service by stating it. Now we can oppose it.

Hitler was nuts. He used to have his niece pee on his face before he fucked her. True. He was into that shit.

Verniercaliper's picture

Hitler was an example of what happens when people stop thinking for themselves and put their faith in a leader that governs autocratically. Anyone who claims to have all the answers and demands total obedience is dangerous and needs to be regarded with extreme suspicion. I always wondered how Hitler still has admirers, given his complete and total failure as a leader.

We who, have given ourselves?

There is indeed a few conspiracy being formulated by a few organizations and being spread around. 

The idea is that food and manufacturing has reached a peak and thus, do not need much people to work anymore. 

For example only 2-3% of the workforce is engaging in farming in US, UK, Europe, and Russia. Assuming another 5% do the remaining job of distribution etc. This means the rest of the 90% can stay home and just wait for food. (of course, I am making it too simple). 

And this 90 percent do not need to work for money. They can be given fixed salary (printed papers) to choose and buy whatever chinese toy they prefer from the nearest store. This is possible because everything is owned by a select few. They can just giving it away. 

There is thus no need to capitalism. Seeking or saving capital is not necessary. 

This is perfect Communism. Everyone share equally what is produced. Some get to own everything. 

But I thought it was a loonies at the fringe who are proposing such ideas. I now think UN is on it too.

This story should be immediately quashed or, at the very least, labelled Fake News, so that The Squid's Carbon-Credit Trading Scheme (of skimming from every cent that goes into your pocket) can go ahead as planned.

Ain't that right Lloyd?
