More Socialist BS at the UN

I was pointed to this video by WRSA. Also provided was a link to the copy of the treaty document.

Now, I consider myself a simple but smart fellow, and the way that treaty is written is certainly to discourage simple folks from trying to decipher it. However, when it came down to it, I was able to find some stuff I don't need a lawyer to comprehend. Here are some quotes directly from the document, page number noted at the end of the quote if you want to check me.

2. Recognizing that the right to development is a basic human right that is undeprivable. (p58)
Okay, am I missing something, or did they just say that it is an undeprivable human right for a nation to develop? First off, the reason most of these nations are not developing is because of their own governments, not the United States. The people and their countries are being held back by their own leaders. Get rid of the poor leadership, and you will have development. Welcome to Free Enterprise 101, a class on the very principle which developed America.
Now, another thing, this is coming from the same group of mo-rons who don't believe the right to defend one's family and property is an undeprivable right. Not only that, but a right which must be taken away!

3. Recalling that economic and social development and poverty eradication are the first and
overriding priorities of the developing countries. (p58)
See above class listing for Free Enterprise 101 and also Advanced Free Enterprise: Keeping Business Booming By Keeping Government Small.
Now, before looking at this next section, consider that this is a bill about "climate change" which means cutting off non-renewable resource use (eg. coal).

1. Recognizing the special difficulties of those countries, especially developing countries, whose
economies are particularly dependent on fossil fuel production, use and exportation, as a consequence of
action taken on limiting greenhouse gas emissions,
2. The specific needs and special circumstances of developing country Parties, especially those that
are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, and of those Parties, especially
developing country Parties, that would have to bear a disproportionate or abnormal burden under the
Convention, should be given full consideration. 2
3. There is a need to undertake a global transition to a low-emission economy in order to tackle
climate change. Although this transition presents a major opportunity for all countries to follow a clean
development path, it can also pose challenges for all Parties, in particular the most vulnerable countries.
Parties should work together to ensure that this transition is congruent with sustainable development
processes in all countries.
4. The difficulties of assessing the complex issue of potential impacts of policies are compounded
by the fact that some of these impacts are unintended and often unanticipated. Wider economic and
political factors can play a role in the vulnerability of socio-economic sectors and can amplify or
diminish the impacts of policies.
Okay, so let me understand this. We want the nations to have their right to develop by regulating the very opportunity for their development. Yeah, cause that will work. Then, let's imply here (maybe directly state elsewhere, it's the notion I've gotten, but again, trying to work through legal BS) that the developed countries will have to lend a financial hand to the developing countries whose way to wealth we have just regulated into dirt.
Here's the great part, let's give ourselves an out when it all comes crumbling down by saying that "some of these impacts are unintended and often unanticipated." Well, dad-gummit, passing a law that may have unintended consequences . . . I'd of never expected the day to come (eyes rolling). . .
Oh, wait, here's that part about us giving more money to the countries whose industry we are crushing:

16. [Adverse economic and social consequences of response measures [shall][should] be addressed
by proper economic, social and environmental actions, including promoting and supporting economic
diversification and the development and dissemination of win-win technologies in the affected countries,
paying particular attention to the needs and concerns of the poorest and most vulnerable developing
country Parties.]
Alternative to paragraph 16:
[Adverse economic and social consequences of response measures shall be addressed by various means,
including but not limited to promoting, supporting and enabling economic diversification, funding,
insurance and the development, transfer and dissemination of win-win technologies in the affected
countries, such as cleaner fossil fuel technologies, gas flaring reduction, and carbon capture and storage
17. [[Developed [and developing] countries] [Developed and developing country Parties] [All
Parties] [shall] [should]:]
(a) Compensate for damage to the LDCs’ economy and also compensate for lost
opportunities, resources, lives, land and dignity, as many will become environmental
(b) Africa, in the context of environmental justice, should be equitably compensated for
environmental, social and economic losses arising from the implementation of response
measures. (p122)
19. [The permanent [forum] should also formulate/implement a work programme that [includes]
[addresses inter alia] the following components:]
(a) [Insurance and financial risk management;]
(b) [Modelling, analytical and methodological tools;]
(c) [Economic diversification;]
(d) Early warning and systematic observation;
(e) Disaster management and preparedness;
(f) Compensation procedures and actions including funds;
(g) Funding;
(h) Other related matters.](p123)
Knew it had to be there somewhere. And again . . . (perhaps with an extra word thrown in there of my own doing, you'll recognize it.)

2. Objective and scope
6. The provision of financial resources shall be guided by the principles of [SOCIALISM]the Convention and the
priorities of developing country Parties, and arrangements shall be made for financial resources to be
made available to enable developing country Parties, especially those particularly vulnerable to the
adverse impacts of climate change, to take nationally appropriate mitigation and adaptation actions, in
the context of sustainable development priorities.
7. The objective of the provision of financial resources is to promote equity and justice through
further enhancement of the full, effective and sustained implementation of the Convention and the Bali
Action Plan, so that the ultimate objective of the Convention can be achieved.
8. Parties agree to establish, in accordance with Article 11 of the Convention, the Financial
Mechanism of the Convention with a structure that meets the specific requirements laid down under
Articles 11.1 and 11.2 of the Convention. The Financial Mechanism shall enable, enhance and support
mitigation and adaptation actions by developing country Parties to meet the objective(s) in accordance
with Article 4.3, 4.4 and 4.5 of the Convention through the provision of financial resources to meet the
agreed full incremental costs of such actions, including the full cost of adaptation activities, technology
transfer and capacity-building.(p126)
The rest of the document is pretty much saying how they are going to take our money and technology and give it to the tyrannical governments of the countries which haven't developed yet because of the very government to whom the money is being given.

And now for the punchline of the entire thing: page 15 says that all of this will be based on "sound science." Doesn't "sound science" take away the whole purpose of a climate change treaty, given that global warming has already been thoroughly debunked, if that's what the treaty is truly about? I would venture to say, yet again, this UN treaty isn't about the issue which is being stated; it's about bringing America to its knees by whatever means possible in order to create a fake Utopian communistic world order.

Read the fine print. It's about sovereignty. We must fight these things peacefully while we can. Concerned American wrapped up their post quite well with these words:

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
- John F. Kennedy, 1962
