Douchebaggery proven, that`s what.
That reminds me of someone else...
That`s right, blame me...
gorgack2000:"Would everyone just shut up about politics. Please. We`ve got a world to save here."
I`d hate to break it to you, but politics IS living in a society with other human beings. I doubt you`d get much planet saving accomplished in anarchy.
To anyone who supports such movements towards the redistribution of wealth, I sincerely hope you also don`t mind a substantially lower standard of living for all of us in this nation. So say goodbye to your extra spending cash, your nice new car, being able to save up YOUR OWN money to live comfortably; because big government like ours doesn`t think you deserve to keep the money you earn for yourself.
Also simply throwing more money at something doesn`t mean it`ll improve. There must be a properly fully laid out plan and guidance-- something that politicians (who`s only concern is reputation during their short few year term and nothing further) Will never embrace.
True global success begins with private funding, dedicated philanthropists, and blooming businesses that can provide jobs and growth in lesser developed nations. Discipline is not developed when money is simply given, but when it is earned with dedication.
if this is signed by barry, ostensibly the constitution becomes a by-law & is meaningless to the new world order & guess who, yes you will be the new subject of international order. so that`s how democracy ends, with thunderous applause.
betcha always thought it would be a conservative that did this, didn`t yah. even Keyser Söze couldn`t convince the world liberals didn`t exist.
welcome to nineteen eighty four
You don`t get it. China and India are not going to sign something that will curb their industries. They`re the biggest and fastest growing economies in the world and they`re not going to start curbing their emissions anytime soon. You may ask why:
It`s because in the last couple of decades, Europe has gotten greener. It`s done this by getting rid of a lot of their dirty industriesâ€”factories and power plants that create a ton of carbon. You know what it did to those factories and plants? It sold them to China. They didn`t get rid of them, they just moved them half way across the globe. Now suddenly Europe is like "Oooh, we`re all green, why can`t the rest of the world be green like us." =] funny huh?
sure this guy sounds like he knows what he`s talking about. but in reality, he is just a really good speaker. he didnt address how they are going to create a world government. he didnt address anything for that matter. he simply quoted Winston Churchill and made himself look like a flipping god among men. really people, learn to see through the bullpoo that some people try to feed you. just because they have a British accent doesnt make them smart.
The pressure is on you to either elect a government that will tax those who produce the emissions fairly.
Here in Canada we have a carbon tax, whoever emits has to pay. If you can afford it, you can emit, if you can`t then you`ve got to stop. And it doesn`t end with industries. When you`re buying a new car, you`re either paying a levy or getting a credit based the car`s emission performance.
This treaty will act as a financial incentive to anyone who signs it, to reduce emissions. In my humble opinion however, China and India will end up paying an amount on the same order as the US, and they are a lot poorer.
Think they`ll sign? Think they`ll cripple their economies or manufacturing capacities with Cap-n-Tax legislation? No?
Neither do I. The treaty is a joke, and he shouldn`t sign it.
The reason why I think he opposes the treaty, and why I definitely do as well, is because it puts way too much power in the hands of too small a minority of people in this world. The PEOPLE of Earth should make the effort to save it, not power-hungry politicians.
This of course is not going to be an over-night change, but the end result of a natural movement of culture will yield betters results than a rash act of misplaced desperation.
He`s saying, by signing this treaty, our President is creating a world government, which (according to a few major religions) is a sign for the end times. (Although, that`s not the point of this.)
By us GIVING third world countries money, we`re becoming marxist. World government, taking money away from the country as a whole and giving it to poor countries, they both reek of socialism. =(Even if it`s for climate change, I`m personally against it. I rather not give away my hard earned money to people I`ll never meet, thanks.
As for this, I really can`t make a bias just listening to this guy, besides the fact that there`s no real information about it, it sounds like a lot of opinion as well. But I will say that I don`t think our nation needs to lock itself into more spending. yeah, yay for third world countries, but my country comes first, dammit.
And that`s all I`ve got to say about that.
This nut wants to turn America against the rest of the world. That would be bad. Very bad. Thankfully no one important listens to him.
AND he`s sad because they`ll take some of his millions away and give it to the poor, or rather they`ll give it to save the planet. HA! Even if that were true, it would still be good news.
I know quite a bit about climate change and I`ll tell you this, something needs to be done internationally and this treaty is a good move.
its not about climate change. Its not about pollution. Its about money. We (americans, europeans and other global economic strongholds) are paying third world countries because they are not burning as much CO2 as us. and no1 can back out of the treaty unless all the parties agree. the potential for world war three is amazing.
Does anyone pay attention to history. Thats how WWI started. All of europe was stuck in a treaty they couldnt get out of.
Global warming is ALL politics and very little science. Don`t be fooled folks
Everyone needs to settle down. Seriously folks. Whats so bad about decreasing pollution? Climate change? Who knows? None of you know for sure and if you claim you do, you are woefully under-informed.
Put all the theories aside and let`s fix the pollution problem. I used to live near a steel plant. Trust me. Their pollution was very real. It coated everything for miles around.
Pay special attention to the "Compliance" section.
Agrere with screamingbean... but damm what could a 13 to 17 knowledged person have to say? i mean... we are simply just the future.
He`ll sign anything to be liked.
I don`t think he actually made a point during that. Just put on a white sheet and went "ooooOOooo""
So as soon as you hear something you disagree with you shut it out? Even if I don`t agree with something I still know there is knowledge to gain and to make an judgment on an argument that you have not listened to is ignorant(no offence)
