Ding, Dong – The Godfather Of Global Warming Is Dead!

StrongParis, COP21 Climate Summit – One of the most dangerous men of the Twentieth Century has just died: and the weird thing is, hardly anyone noticed.

His name was Maurice Strong (picture on the right), Canadian billionaire, diplomat and UN apparatchik, and though you may not have heard of him, he probably did more to make your world a more expensive, inconvenient, overregulated, hectored, bullied, lied-to, sclerotic, undemocratic place than anyone post Hitler, Stalin and (his personal friend) Mao.

He’s the reason, for example, that most of the world’s leaders, 40,000 delegates and their att

endant carbon mega-footprint descended here on Paris yesterday in order to talk about magical fairy dust for two weeks and then charge you $1.5 trillion (that’s per year, by the way) for the privilege.

He’s the reason that “climate change” is now so heavily embedded within our system of global governance that it is now almost literally impossible for any politician or anyone else whose career depends on the state to admit that’s it not a problem and to argue that there are more important issues in the world, like maybe the terrorism that killed over 130 innocent people just the other week now, where was it?- oh yeah, here in Paris where for some bizarre reason all the delegates are talking about carbon emissions instead…

He was the father of the mother of all climate summits: the one in Rio in 1992 that spawned a million and one bastard offspring, like the one in Paris now.

He was the main instigator of the blueprint for arguably the most sinister and insidious assault on liberty and free markets: Agenda 21.

If you had met him – if you’d even noticed him – you would have probably quite liked him:

One of the most remarkable things about Strong was how unremarkable he was in person. Somebody once said that you wouldn’t pick him out of a crowd of two.

Nevertheless, he was an avuncular and likeable figure, even to those who disagreed strongly with his world view, as I did. I interviewed him numerous times over a 20-year period, and found that he took scarcely-concealed delight in explaining his often Machiavellian political manoeuvrings.

But as I argue in Watermelons – which gave a lot of space to Strong – it’s a big mistake to expect that supervillains will always have scars down the side of their face and fluffy white cat on their lap.

Strong’s true evil lay in the effects of his acts, not in his (claimed) good intentions.

Then again, the mask did occasionally slip.

In his 2000 autobiography Where Are We Going? he projected that by 2031 two thirds of the world’s population might have been wiped out. This, he chillingly described as:

“A glimmer of hope for the future of our species and its potential for regeneration.”

See: it’s perfectly OK to fantasize about the deaths of maybe 5 billion people – as long as you show at the end that you really care: you’re thinking about the future of humanity.

Strong sincerely believed all this Malthusian stuff and that was the problem. It became our problem because unfortunately – see that charm, above – he was such a skilled operator, with an endless appetite for labyrinthine bureaucracy and the will to embed it in the system.

The United Nations, which he joined early in 1947 as a lowly assistant pass officer in the Identification Unit of the Security Section in New York, was his perfect playground.

It was where, he quickly realized, he could achieve his dream of a world of global governance by a self-appointed elite. And the best way to go about this, he understood, was by manipulating and exploiting international concern about the environment.

Strong was never shy of admitting what he was about:

“Our concept of ballot box democracy may need to be modified to produce strong governments capable of making difficult decisions, particularly in terms of safeguarding the global environment.”

Or, as he put it when he’d wormed his way through the system to the position of Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1991:

Current lifestyle and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and workplace air-conditioning and surburban housing – are not sustainable. A shift is necessary which will require a vast strengthening of the multilateral system, including the United Nations.

This was the purpose of the Rio Earth Summit – and on the non-binding but secretly deadly agreement Strong managed to gull 179 sovereign nations into signing: Agenda 21.

If you don’t know about Agenda 21, you should. This final quote from Strong will give you an idea how illiberal and undemocratic it is – a blueprint for one-world government by an unelected bureaucracy of technocrats, enabled by diehard progressive activists.

    The UN Food for oil $$ corruption is pocket change compared to a global warming tax funnelled through the UN .

    Different scam but the same type of skimmers
    trying to get a piece .

    Considering the cost in money, freedom, and jobs the damage by Maurice Strong is staggering. Yet, “one man” is rarely the cause of such huge disasters.

    Consider Adolph Hitler. He never would have come to power if it wasn’t for the Versailles treaty. Mostly imposed by the French and British it was so punitive that Germany had no choice but raise again.

    Maurice Strong has had significant cooperation in his fraud. There are the “scientists” who produce one bogus study after another. One example is the polar bears. One example is NOAA altering data before and after 1950 to make it appear climate change is happening. NOAA also altered data to make it appear the warming pause wasn’t happening. The ocean acidification is a total fraud by NOAA. They omitted data showing this wasn’t happening such as the oceans were more acid in 1920 than they are now. They also chose a 100 year high point for pH values as their starting point so any value after that would make it appear that the oceans were becoming more acid. NOAA has lied with their multiple claims of “hottest ever” when increase in temperature was a few hundredths of a degree where as the uncertainty was in the tenths of a degree.
    The politicians have helped either by being stupid or lying. Obama linking climate change to ISIS is down right stupid. Many politicians are lying or ignorant as they continue to blame extreme weather events on climate change.
    The guiltiest is the major news media. They have continued to ignore the dismal failure of the computer climate models, that extreme weather events are not increasing, and that polar bears are thriving. Instead they run what amounts to free advertisements hyping the climate change agenda.

    David Lewis well said . Essentially what the architects of the global warming fraud did was lie to steal money from people that they would otherwise have been unable to . It is akin to holding someone up with an empty gun and telling them it is the right thing to do .
    The safety in numbers gang bang of citizens who are almost powerless to stop them … at least for a while .
    When this scam blows up ,and it will, the politicians will be long gone .

    Why would the” developed countries ” sell out their own citizens interest ? Tweaking the temperature ? Not a chance .
