U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming ScareFigueres is a purely government-type person coming from a purely government-type family with no roots in the world's production and consumption mill, except as a privileged consumer who is paid by taxpayers. And she has no credentials in science or economics whatsoever although hers is a program claiming science which she is promoting as her preferred "fix" to the world's economy. Her fix is the standard one: steal it; get them to agree to the theft; guilt sometimes works so that they just give it to you; you deserve it because you (and the planet) are Victims.
"Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man's stewardship of the environment. But we know that's not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
"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 said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: "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."
