"We cannot accept threats of all kinds of trouble just because a small price has to be paid for the pollution caused by travel"

4/4/12, "Connie Hedegaard can’t see why anyone objects to extra-sovereign taxation," Steve Milloy, Junk Science
"Uh, Connie? You’re trying to charge for CO2 and that’s not an atmospheric pollutant. Another thing – you actually haven’t been elected as ruler of the world and have no rights to impose global taxation – just thought you might need to know that."...
Ed. note: Connie, if anyone is "unelected" and therefore superfluous, it certainly is you.
Who exactly said anyone in the US has to listen to you? You work for a known money laundering outfit called the UN whose personnel are above the law (including murder), free to spend US tax dollars to re-decorate their summer homes or stash in a Swiss bank account (item at end of article). After what you did in Denmark, organized crime has to be slobbering all over you. Billions have been stolen from gullible taxpayers but that's peanuts compared to trillions yet to be 'transferred.' Your racket has been exposed as a multitude of crimes but you have the NY Times, the Washington Post, NBC, ABC, CBS, politicians, and organized crime so you can do whatever you want.
As far as "polluter pays," how much have you and your parasitic pals personally paid (or even reimbursed taxpayers) for all the air miles you've logged jetting around the world from one drunken 'climate' convention to the next?
5/24/10, "Europe's climate chief under pressure over Denmark's 'missing' emissions traders," UK Guardian, by Felicity Carus
"The EU's climate chief is facing pressure to explain her failure to crack down on a loophole that allowed alleged fraudsters – a large number of them based in Britain – to make millions of euros through Europe's emissions trading scheme.
Confidential documents seen by the Guardian show that Connie Hedegaard, the European commissioner for climate action, had been informed about fraudsters targeting the Danish carbon registry to enable them to trade in credits last summer, as the UK and the Netherlands were clamping down on the fraud by scrapping VAT on carbon trading. An MEP last week lodged an official question asking what happened to the Danish registry while Hedegaard was climate minister,
- and what is being done across Europe to combat carbon fraud. Denmark is now at the centre of a Europol investigation into carbon fraud worth €5bn (£4.3bn).
An estimated 116 arrests have been made so far, around 30 of them in the UK.
- Previously, Hedegaard had denied knowing about the suspected fraud until a Danish newspaper reported it in December.
"I was never informed about this until last autumn when Ekstra Bladet looked into the fraud," she told the Guardian. But the confidential climate ministry report seen by the Guardian, entitled VAT Fraud in the European CO2 Quota Register Including the Danish, appears to have been
- signed with Hedegaard's initials, indicating she was made aware
- of the problem in August last year....
"The controversy over the Danish registry comes as Hedegaard faces a battle over a push to increase the EU's commitment to cut carbon emissions from 20% to 30% by 2020, and criticism over draft rules for the quantity of emissions allowed in the crucial third phase of the EU ETS,
- which includes safeguards to protect the market against misuse by governments and criminal activities.
Danish MP Ida Auken, who has tabled questions on the Danish registry before parliament to the current climate minister Lykke Friis, said:
"A third grade child could read this and say there is something wrong with the Danish registry. If the minister had acted straight, she would have stated clearly that a big mistake was made in the Danish registry during her time as minister.""

"Tax fraudsters have targeted the EU's carbon emissions trading system, pocketing about five billion euros (7.4 billion dollars), the Europol police agency said Wednesday.
"The European Union Emission Trading System has been the victim of fraudulent traders in the past 18 months," said the agency in a statement.
"This resulted in losses of approximately five billion euros for several national tax revenues."
The agency, based in The Hague, added that it estimated "in some countries, up to 90 percent of the whole market volume was caused by fraudulent activities.""...
At least 3 UN officials state the 'climate change' issue isn't about climate but a 'transfer of wealth':
1. UN IPCC Nobel winner, Pachauri: ""I am not going to rest easy until I have articulated in every possible forum the need to bring about major structural changes in economic growth and development. That’s the real issue. Climate change is just a part of it."" UN climate chief Pachauri, 2007
2. 11/14/10, Edenhofer, UN IPCC official, "But one must say clearly that we distribute to the climate policy de facto, the world's wealth."...(parag. 5).
And if this happens,
- "Africa is the big winner, and it flows a lot of money there."...(parag. 3).
3. 10/9/10, Christiana "Figueres, executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)" said, "This is the greatest societal and economic transformation that the world has ever seen."
- (Figueres' resume, long form, page 5 states she is trained and authorized by Al Gore to deliver his movie, "An Inconvenient Truth.")
Former Obama-Biden climate adviser says the issue is about 3 things (none of them climate):

"One senior US climate negotiator at Kyoto (Nigel Purvis) described as a collection of “toxic” ingredients.
"“There are three issues –
- constraining industry,
- sending money abroad, and
- strengthening the UN –
Nigel Purvis, a State Department official under the Clinton and Bush administrations, said on the phone from Washington....Nigel Purvis, now the president of the Climate Advisers* consultancy in Washington."...
"In 2008, Mr. Purvis served as a senior adviser on climate diplomacy to the Obama-Biden campaign." He is founder and president of Climate Advisers.
UN personnel are legally free to use our money to decorate their summer homes or even throw it out the window (citations below). In other words, the UN is better than anything the Mafia ever dreamed of.
