UN Displaces 20,000 African Farmers to Mitigate Global Warming

Russ Steele

It is one thing when the UN IPCC is just spending our money for lavish meetings and writing long tomes of environmental fiction, it is another when the UN IPCC begins to believe its own hoax and starts destroying human lives by implementing it’s climate change reduction policies.

Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking her to conduct an investigation into alleged human rights violations sanctioned by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in its efforts to promote offsets for greenhouse gas emissions.

These violations have come to light just weeks before the United Nations climate change conference in Durban, South Africa. If they are not addressed in an appropriate manner, Senator Inhofe will offer an amendment that will cut off U.S. funding to the UNFCCC until it puts a stop to these human rights abuses.

    Same agenda different methods!

    DDT

    This is from 2005 and is harsh.

    Read up on the subject of DDT here:

    That’s the real beauty of having a cause where you are not only saving all of humanity but the world itself. A few abuses around the edges, particularly when you have paid third parties carrying them out, are tolerable so long as you don’t lose site of the great things you are doing. I’m glad this is being brought to light so people begin to understand there are consequences to whatever path is chosen.

    If these allegations are true, this is exactly the type of mitigation project that should not be allowed. It is morally reprehensible to manage a project like this and not account for the needs of the actual people affected. It is impossible to advance the idea of sustainability without social and economic justice as well; and environmental mitigation projects should include human impacts.

    What Oxfam is asking for in its report (see link) is on pg. 11, paraphrased here:

    1) Hold a full investigation into the events in Kiboga and Mubenda
    2) Transparent and accountable process to determine compensation
    3) Damages for abuses
    4) Reform of policies, standards and procedures

    I could not agree more. If abuses of the law and human rights occur they should be prosecuted.

    I do not think that means that climate change mitigation is the culprit; the criminal activities of the people involved is the culprit.

  4. If I am recalling correctly, a local fellow, Patrick Hurley, has been making the case about DDT here for many years. Unfortunately for millions of little children, politicians brainwashed about DDT in “Silent Spring” will not allow its use. I read the book when I was young and my mind was mush and I must say I probably agreed with Carson then. But over time when the facts come out we see the BIG LIE. The same with “global warming” and its many lies. There is an agenda and one needs to simply follow the money to see why some things are pushed and ohers are not. The malaria victims could have been saved, who knows, one of them may hav cured cancer. We will never know.
