Do you remember Lord Monckton warning us that the Copenhagen Treaty is all about global governance and the U.S. repaying it’s so called “climate debt” to the rest of the world? Did that seem crazy to you? Well, here it is from the new EU president Herman Van Rompuy himself (but of course this guy considers global governance a virtue, as long as he is one of the governing, that is…):
“2009 is also the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step towards the global management of our planet.”
Mark Steyn wonders, “Global government, huh? I wonder where you go to vote them out of office.”
The United States was established as a city on a hill, as a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world. It can only remain so if we actively fight to preserve liberty within our country and resolutely refuse to cede our nation’s sovereignty to the likes of the EU, the UN, or any other organization. If the United States is weakened (which is the true purpose of any world “green treaty”), then the entire world is weakened in the cause of freedom.
“The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind.” Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
“The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” George Washington, First Inaugural Address, 1789

I am not an environmentalist. This is not because I don’t love the Earth and all of its beauty. In fact, I believe the Earth is a magnificent creation of and a marvelous blessing from the Lord. It’s the term that bothers me…because “environmentalism” has, sadly, become largely synonymous with “extremism.” I think it’s important to take reasonable measures to keep our planet beautiful and healthy. But I don’t buy into the whole Global Warming…oh, I forgot, now the correct term is “climate change” hoax. Yes, I believe it’s a hoax. I think it’s ridiculous to suggest that we all must use goofy light bulbs and paint our roofs white and spend an hour a day sorting our trash for recycling in order to “save” the planet. And I am deeply offended by those who…more than merely suggest…would FORCE us to do these things whether we want to or not, for the good of the world. I believe that the Earth will last and provide for its people as long as the Lord needs and/or wants it to, period. We should be kind to our dear Mother Earth until then, but I’m not going to undergo sterilization as part of my “green duty.” (Yes, some women are actually doing this!)
And I think that giving up American sovereignty in order to pay our “climate debt” to the the rest of the world is positively shameful, but apparently that is exactly what the Copenhagen Treaty calls for, as explained by Lord Monckton:
Below, Lord Monckton explains “globalized groupthink” regarding climate change…very interesting indeed. Then, at the end, he challenges Al Gore to a debate…very amusing indeed.
We’ve been all consumed with the issue of health care lately, and rightly so, but we must remember that threats to freedom come in many forms, and “climate change” is a biggie.
