Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after ‘Danish text’ leak

Developing countries react furiously to leaked draft agreement that would hand more power to rich nations, sideline the UN’s negotiating role and abandon the Kyoto protocol

(What you are seeing coming into focus rather quickly now is a global mechanism, established by law, to allow the IMF and World Bank to force EVERY NATION into the same kinds of economic “reforms” they used on Chile, South Africa, Russia, Poland, and many others. These “reforms” crippled the economies of these nations and allowed multi-national corporations access to loot and pillage the resources, industries, and public assets of these nations to almost biblical proportions.  In effect, they are a slash and burn type of financial model much like the mergers and acquisitions corporate raiders use when liquidating the assets of companies they purchase… only on a national scale. Previously they could only gain access to any targeted nation if the IMF and World Bank were brought in by the government of that nation and much to the chagrin of the IMF and World Bank, their reputation precedes them now everywhere they go.  Their “loans” are being refused at an increasingly consistent rate these days.   These new leaks clearly show that the entire point of this new global accord to combat “global warming” is nothing more than a world-wide system to allow the IMF and the World Bank to force its neoliberal free-market “reforms” on any nation it so chooses and ultimately on all nations.  One aspect of the treaty being drawn up is that no nation once signed on can quit the accord unless every single other nation votes to allow them out. That means that, like in the UN Security Council, the US will have ultimate veto power on every nation, were they to choose to leave the agreement once they realise the damage it is doing to their people. Another import aspect here is this shows that the UN, previously viewed as the bad guy in all of this, is NOT going to become the ultimate hub of the global governance being created, but rather it will be a collection of privatized NGOs, the World Bank, the IMF, and ultimately the International Bank for Settlements… the central bank system of privately owned central banks world-wide.)

from The Guardian

The UN Copenhagen climate talks are in disarray today after developing countries reacted furiously to leaked documents that show world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN’s role in all future climate change negotiations.

The document is also being interpreted by developing countries as setting unequal limits on per capita carbon emissions for developed and developing countries in 2050; meaning that people in rich countries would be permitted to emit nearly twice as much under the proposals.

The so-called Danish text, a secret draft agreement worked on by a group of individuals known as “the circle of commitment” – but understood to include the UK, US and Denmark – has only been shown to a handful of countries since it was finalised this week.

The agreement, leaked to the Guardian, is a departure from the Kyoto protocol‘s principle that rich nations, which have emitted the bulk of the CO2, should take on firm and binding commitments to reduce greenhouse gases, while poorer nations were not compelled to act. The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol – the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of actions.

Exclusive: Honduran elections exposed

“Honduran coup regime’s claims about 60% turnout at free and fair elections is revealed as fraud. Also implicated in the video are the wide array of media outlets and governments that have unquestioningly accepted the electoral data of a regime that overthrew the last elected president.”

“There is wide agreement that last week’s presidential election in Honduras…” begins an editorial in Saturday’s New York Times, “…was clean and fair.” The editorial gives no hint as to whom all these people are that are in agreement, except for the ‘official’ data from the same regime that overthrew the elected president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, at gunpoint. The Times joins governments, commentators and editorial pages around the world that have fallen victim to the ‘official’ coup data. But, as this video shows, the proof of the fraud was sitting out in the open the whole time. ”
