Agenda 21 and the Draft NZ Biodiversity Strategy

The current New Zealand government has produced a raft of measures to implement the United Nations Agenda 21, including the draft Biodiversity Strategy, the Zero Carbon Bill, the Oil and Exploration Bill, and the One Billion Trees Fund.

AGENDA 21

In 1992 Agenda 21 was adopted in Rio de Janeiro at the UN Earth Summit Conference on Environment and Development. It is defined by the United Nations as a ‘comprehensive plan for action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments and major groups in every area in which humans impact the environment.’ New Zealand is signatory to this (ostensibly non-binding) international treaty with over 100 other countries.

‘The UN’s Agenda 21 is definitely comprehensive and global — breathtakingly so. Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet’s oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, sea beds, coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra, and mountains. It even has a whole section on regulating and “protecting” the atmosphere. It proposes plans for cities, towns, suburbs, villages, and rural areas. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption — in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.’ (William Jasper, Your Hometown and the United Nations Agenda 21)

Agenda 21 is the culmination and ultimate expression of a number of UN Conferences and UN-drafted pacts and declarations to do with the place of humanity in the environment, and the management of humanity overall.  Almost all of these have been signed by New Zealand.  They  are dominated by two assumed, overriding and non-negotiable values – debate of the first never arises, and of the second is never permitted:

  • The precedence of ‘biodiversity’ over all other rights, even of human life;
  • The non-negotiability of the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming narrative.

The United Nations vision includes the following priorities:

  • High-density (forced) urbanisation
  • Reduction or elimination of private property rights
  • Reduction of population

or in brief: Agenda 21 in One Easy Lesson

The American Wildlands Project

The American Wildlands Project, (now calling itself the Wildlands Network) is an implementation of UN policies on biodiversity and human habitat. It proposes to set up to one-half of America into core wilderness reserves and interconnecting corridors, all surrounded by interconnecting buffer zones. No human activity would be permitted in the core reserves and corridors, and only highly regulated activity would be permitted in the buffer zones. Human settlement would be in high density cities.  The purpose of the corridors is to allow large animals like bison to roam free, including migration across the continent.

Ratification of the United Nations Convention of Biological Diversity was defeated in the US Senate, when the concept of the Wildlands Project formed the bsis for the convention.   A number of American states have taken steps to ban Agenda 21 and the local body network ICLEI, specifically set up to ensure implementation of Agenda 21 (most cities in New Zealand belong to ICLEI).

The principles of Agenda 21 and the Wildlands Project are being enacted by Local Bodies and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). People are jailed and/or heavily fined for interfering with the slightest trickle of water on their property; small towns are startled to find high-rise, high density developments out of all keeping approved; farmers and other rural dwellers are being forced off their land through taxation or zoning.  Powers of eminent domain have been extended to allow councils to agree with developers to confiscate private land, in order to build pack and stack subdivisions, also used to take land for projects such as bike paths.

‘Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.’ Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project

Note: the term Agenda 21 is no longer used by the UN and governments, because of the negative connotations it has acquired. Instead they talk of sustainability and resilience: the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are in fact Agenda 21 goals.

New Zealand

New Zealand has had a policy of preserving native forest, and protecting native fauna, and generally caring for the environment, independent of the United Nation.  About 30% of New Zealand is forested, on public or private land.  National parks also include large tracts of non-forested land which are protected from development. Cities have extensive reserves.  Many suburban sections in hilly towns like Wellington, even modest ones,  have small tracts of native bush.

New Zealanders have a very close physical connection with nature and the outdoors, perhaps through pursuits like tramping, skiing, beach activities; for many people this connection is largely through time spent in their own backyards. Most New Zealanders live in houses of one or two stories with a garden, usually consisting of lawns, flowers, shrubs.

The effect of the implementation of Agenda 21 on lifestyle will be far more dramatic  in New Zealand than in Turkey, for example, where even quite small towns consist of apartment buildings. It will also entail the loss of the eco-system provided by the suburban and small-town lifestyle.

For New Zealanders, Agenda 21 means the complete destruction of a way of life that most people see as positive.

The Biodiversity Strategy

New Zealand’s Department of Conservation (DOC) has produced a draft Biodiversity Strategy, which is a commitment under the Convention on Biological Diversity, signed by NZ at the Rio Earth Summit.

The proposed Biodiversity Strategy is the New Zealand version of the American Wildlands Project. 

The strategy demands the ongoing expansion of reserved land and land where use is limited by its being dedicated to ‘biodiversity’; this will be achieved by increased ‘tools’ (regulations)  to facilitate taking of private land or limiting the use of private land.

The draft is imprecise, repetitive and sentimental, and written in a hybrid English/Maori language clearly intended for distraction rather than communication – very popular amongst NZ government departments when they do not actually want their documents to be read closely.   There is a paucity of science and of detail. The draft neither sets out what New Zealand is already doing to protect the environment, nor explains what needs to be done and why, nor provides options.

The draft emphasises the New Zealand love of ‘nature’, ‘Nature in Aotearoa is healthy, abundant, and thriving. Current and future generations connect with nature, restore it and are restored by it.’ While there is a a comprehensive list of outdoor activities, a notable omission is the home garden.  New Zealand is described as an urbanised society

  New Zealand is one of the most urbanised countries in the world. There is significant opportunity to restore nature in cities and integrate it into urban planning, which will, in turn, help reconnect urban dwellers with nature. P. 52

This extraordinary statement conveys an impression of a people living in high density cities like Singapore, nothing like New Zealand cities with their preponderance of single-use dwellings, private yards and abundance of greenery.

DOC’s vision for New Zealand by 2070

‘Our species, habitats and ecosystems (especially those that are currently rare
and threatened) are increasing, not declining, in number and extent, across
private as well as public land and in the sea’

Language and goals echo the Wildlands Project:

‘Biodiversity hubs’

What is planned is ‘a complete network of biodiversity hubs across New Zealand […] Review current hubs/similar arrangements to establish what is most effective and what barriers may exist. […] If required, establish a national function to support establishment of hubs and provide coordination and oversight, such as a nationwide network of  biodiversity hubs and connection to national and regional funders.’

Corridors and buffer zones

‘Eco systems will be connected from the mountain tops to the ocean depths’, involving ‘corridors for nature, linkages over landscapes, reducing fragmentation, considering externalities (p.51); ‘By creating ecological corridors and buffer zones and increasing the diversity of land use, a tapestry of ecosystems are being reconnected so they can function more efficiently as a whole landscape’. (p. 54)

Note: New Zealand does not have large land mammals like bison to utilise cross-country corridors: birds and butterflies use street plantings and private gardens as corridors just as much as, or even in preference to, indigenous forest.

Expansion of biodiversity areas – restoring biodiversity

The strategy aims to ‘restore biodiversity’ (p. 20), without defining what is meant by this goal decision.  At the extreme, of course, all human inhabitants would depart, leaving New Zealand to revert to the avian paradise it once was.  The Agenda 21 compromise is penning human beings in high-density cities, leaving most of the country zoned for ‘biodiversity’.

Private land

‘Our species, habitats and ecosystems (especially those that are currently rare
and threatened) are increasing, not declining, in number and extent, across
private as well as public land and in the sea […] Biodiversity is core to all decisions about land and water management, including on private land’ (p. 28);  ‘private landowners
[…] are a crucial part of the system’ (p. 38); ‘Implement a consistent national approach to rates relief for covenanted and other protected private land’; ‘Many iwi, hapū and whānau have significant aspirations to play a greater role in managing biodiversity on public and private land’ (p. 43).

Expanding regulatory frameworks.

Biodiversity is ‘core to all decisions about land and water management’. To enforce this, and to facilitate taking or imposing restrictions on private land,  more powers need to be given to local and central government.

‘Legal and regulatory frameworks are not achieving enough  […]  Beyond protected areas, such as on private land and in most of our marine environment, there are even fewer tools and frameworks available to ensure that biodiversity is protected’ (p. 16)   ‘A mix of regulatory and non-regulatory tools should be used to achieve the best
outcome, recognising that incentives, regulatory guidance and backstops are important elements of an effective response’. (p. 29)

The Kaitiaki Role

‘Mana whenua feel that they can genuinely practice their role as kaitiaki’.  It is unclear whether this just another feel-good statement by DOC, or whether it flags Maori having a greater say over land use if, for example, requirements for resource consents are extended to suburban home-owners affected by ‘significant natural area designations.

Some questions:

A large percentage of New Zealand is already dedicated to habitats for indigenous species, who also make great use of our home gardens –  do New Zealanders see as a priority an expansion of ‘biodiversity areas’ at all costs, and at the expense of all other land uses?

‘Priority should be given to conserving indigenous species over non-indigenous species when making management decisions.’  Always?  How does this affect the Wellington Botanical Gardens? Home gardens? Pets?

Anthropogenic Global Warming / Climate Change

Many thousands of American and International scientists including some of New Zealand’s most senior have sent and are still sending (e.g. here and here) numerous petitions to heads of government, UN bureaucrats and the European Untion begging them to reconsider their allegiance to the anthropogenic global warming narrative.

All say pretty much the same thing:

  • the climate has always changed,
  • so called greenhouses gases – CO2, methane and nitrous oxide – have little or no effect on global warming,
  • extreme weather events are not increasing, and
  • resources would be better spent on real environmental issues.

Carbon dioxide: The human-generated portion constitutes about 3% of atmospheric CO2; New Zealand’s share of that is 0.1%.  The government’s claim that its measure to reduce CO2 will do anything to stop the climate changing is patently ridiculous.

Methane: Methane is virtually irrelevant as a greenhouse gas, according to papers by Jock Allison, Tom Sheahen and Geoff Allison, emeritus professor of Auckland University

Methane ‘has such a low atmospheric concentration around 0.00018% and combined with it having such a narrow waveband in which it can absorb radiant energy, it is so irrelevant to global temperatures that calls for reductions in methane emissions are laughable’.

Sea level rise: global sea level data indicates a sea level rise of 1-2mm per annum, ie four to eight inches over 100 years.  A careful analysis of measurements from the world’s best long-term coastal tide gauges, indicates that the global average rate of sea-level change, is just under +1.5 mm/yr (about 6 inches per century), and it is not accelerating.  Members of the School of Surveying, Otago University and GNS NZ  have analysed tide gauge records and vertical land  movements for New Zealand, and found  an average annual sea level rise of 0.9 mm over four main NZ centres (this slide from their presentation at the International Surveyors (FIG) Conference in Helsinki 2017).

Parallel measures to the Biodiversity Strategy

Oil Exploration Bill: on the back of the ‘climate change’ narrative, the New Zealand government introduced legislation to ban all new permits for offshore oil and gas exploration, as a move towards a zero emissions future.  (In almost the same breath, the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been castigating oil companies for the high price of petrol at the pump.

Zero Carbon Bill: The Bill provides for eliminating New Zealand’s carbon dioxide emissions completely by 2050.  It also aims at a 10% reduction in biological methane by 2030 and a provisional reduction of between 24%-47% by 2050.

According the Bill’s Regulatory Impact Statement economic growth could slow by $5-12 billion per year over 2020 to 2050 – a loss of around $300 billion. Emissions-intensive sectors including farming ‘could see their output drop by 50 percent from current levels by 2050’.

‘The Prime Minister admitted in her first reading speech, that the harsh methane targets being imposed on farmers were not designed by New Zealand’s scientific experts, but by the UN’s highly politicised climate bureaucracy: ‘The only thing that we have – science based – is actually the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. They undertook modelling that … said you would need to set a target between 24 and 47 percent.’ (Muriel Newman, The Controversial Zero Carbon Bill)

One Billion Trees Fund: The government is providing funds to encourage the planting of one billion trees by 2028.  At least half of this is likely to be pinus radiata forest.  According to Forestry Minister Shane Jones:

‘We have a strong base to build on, with the commercial forestry sector projected to plant half a billion trees in the next 10 years. […]  This year, almost 7.3 million trees will be planted through various Ministry for Primary Industries schemes – about half of which will be indigenous species. […] The tree planting programme will benefit New Zealand’s provinces, our environment and our people – it is a big boost for the forestry sector and will create more jobs and training opportunities to provinces that have been doing it tough for a while now.’

Direct Grants from the One Billion Trees Fund are available to landowners, including private landowners, farmers and Māori landowners, to help with the costs of planting trees or assisting reversion to native forest.  Funding is available for plantings of a minimum of an acre for native trees, and 5 acres for exotics. Thus the taxpayer is subsiding the conversion of fertile farmland to pinus radiata plantations.

Environmental Implications

The intention is to cover the countryside with wind turbines, solar farms and pinus radiata.

It is assumed that energy requirements previously met by fossil fuels will come from wind power and solar energy.  That in itself is probably an impossible feat, but there is little discussion of the environmental implications.  Aside from being an eye sore, wind farms are a threat to birds, bats and bugs, not to mention human health.

Motors are to be replaced by batteries. Wellington City Council has also scrapped its trolley buses, which were fed off the national grid, and replaced them with battery powered models.  Whether New Zealand is able to dispose of used batteries economically and safely is questionable.  It is also doubtful whether the rare earths,  the very mining of which is questionable from an environment viewpoint, will be able to meet the demand if the whole world is relying on them for power.

Pinus radiata is hostile to flora and fauna, sours the soil when New Zealand soil and water are already acid, and large plantations are not always considered aesthetic.

How it works:

Rural New Zealand:  Farming, a primary industry, is under enormous threat.

  • Huge areas of fertile pasture land are being converted to pinus radiata forest, regardless of the ecological implications. The conversion will result in a net loss of jobs.
  • Farmers are faced with the pressures to reduce methane.
  • At the same time people worldwide are being told they should cut down on meat, or preferably give up eating all animal products, to save the planet.  The UN proposes a special tax on meat consumption.

The effect of all these measures on the rural landscape, rural jobs and rural towns will be extreme – some towns will not survive.

The Cities: New Zealand’s major cities are not affected so directly by the legislation.  However they all belong to the same organisations that were created to facilitate Agenda 21, such as ICLEI and 100 Resilient Cities, and the same Agenda 21 ethos prevails.  Thus Wellington councillors  claim that conversion of the city from leafy suburbs to apartment buildings is inevitable, and are supported in this by the corporate press:

Apartmentliving2

On the other hand biodiversity is paramount (eco-systems provided by the flowers and shrubs in home gardens, while much loved by birds and insects, do not count). Wellington has initiated a programme of designating ‘Significant Natural Areas’, which seems to consist of notifying startled Wellington city homeowners that a portion of their backyards, even whole sections that have been awaiting development for about 100 years, are now part of a Significant Natural Area, with implications for land use (from subdivision to house extension) and property values.

It is debatable whether Wellingtonians think that having such biodiversity areas that cannot be accessed by the public is a welcome trade-off, for trees being uprooted and bush-covered banks being torn down to enable high-density development. In any case the lesson is clear – plant exotic trees in your garden and keep mowing those lawns, because if you allow them to revert to bush, you could lose all rights and see the value of your property diminish.

Conclusion

In order to implement the Agenda 21 of UN bureaucrats, New Zealand politicians, local and national, are on course to destroy the rural sector, rural towns, the environment, and the New Zealand way of life.  All this is on the back of the fallacious climate narrative and environmental priorities imposed from without, and without proper consultation with the New Zealand people.

Ownership produces equity – that is a process to build wealth. 60% of small businesses in America were financed by the equity in the owner’s private property. And eventually 60% of Americans were employed by companies that were financed in that manner. Private property ownership is the path to building wealth and eliminating poverty.’

Bill Gates’ Busy Busy World

Bill Gates, often cited as the second richest man in the world, spends a vast fortune on ostensibly philanthropic enterprises, most of a scientific nature.  Gates focuses heavily on climate change (zero carbon) and universal vaccination; his funding/investment interests include:

  • Biofuels
  • Geoengineering to stop the sun
  • Carbon capture
  • Hurricane calming
  • Veganism
  • Genetically modified seeds
  • Surveillance of humanity from space
  • A global database of newborns
  • Microchipping to provide contraception
  • Microchipping to vaccinate

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the world’s most powerful charity, funded to the tune of $34.6 billion in addition to $30 billion from a Warren Buffet investment. The Foundation involves itself with environmental and health concerns – thus on the one hand, it aspires to save humanity, and on the other to save the planet from humanity. The Gates Foundation often works in conjunction with other elite organisations, particularly the Rockefeller Foundations – Bill Gates has been described as the David Rockefeller of his age.

The Gates Foundation is the second biggest donor to the World Health Organisation (WHO) after the United States.

Global warming / Climate change

Innovating to Zero: Bill Gates presentation to TED, 2010, on mitigating climate change, with reference to depopulation and also vaccines.

In the words of the Atlantic, Bill Gates has committed his fortune to moving the world beyond fossil fuels and mitigating climate change, on the assumption that CO2 is causing catastrophic global warming.  According to Bill Gates, we need an energy miracle, in order to replace fossil fuels. To this end he has been funding ‘climate energy research‘  and ‘clean energy’ initiatives.

At the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 21) Bill Gates launched two initiatives:

Mission Innovation is a global initiative ‘to dramatically accelerate public and private global clean energy innovation to address global climate change, provide affordable clean energy to consumers, including in the developing world, and create additional commercial opportunities in clean energy’ (‘The Whitehouse’).  24 countries committed to double their respective clean energy research and development over the five years to 2020.

Breakthrough Energy: is a fund to finance clean energy projects. It  describes itself as a group of private investors, global corporations and financial institutions ‘with the capital necessary to finance the world’s largest infrastructure projects’. Private investors include Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros and  Richard Branson.

In October 2018 Bill Gates announced a partnership with the European Union to create an  investment fund for green energy startups.

The Gates Foundation, like the Rockefeller Foundation, is a heavy funder of  academic institutions.  One example is the Stockholm Resilience Centre , to which the Gates Foundation donated $9.8 million in 2017, and a further sum in 2018. The Centre specialises in alarming studies on ‘climate’, predicting, for example, a ‘hot house earth‘.

Biofuel

Gates has been investing in biofuel specialists like Renmatix. which has developed a process that converts plant waste and biomass into sugars that can be converted into biofuels and bio versions of chemicals. See also Renmatix Biochemicals are the Wave of the Future.

Geoengineering to cool the planet

In its report of October 2018, Global Warming of 1.5 °C, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggested that a fleet of high-flying aircraft could deposit enough sulfur to offset roughly 1.5 °C of warming for around $1 billion to $10 billion per year.

Since 2007 Bill Gates has been personally funding and closely involved in the Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research (FICER), based at Harvard University, which carries out research into the possibility of blocking the sun in order to mitigate global warming, using chemicals or particles of metals such as aluminium.

In 2012 FICER announced their intention to spray sun-reflecting sulphate particles into the atmosphere to artificially cool the planet, using a balloon flying 80,000 feet over Fort Sumner, New Mexico. That year  they also contemplated using aluminium  for the same purpose.

In 2018 the Harvard scientists announced their intention to release calcium carbonate into the stratosphere over the South-Western United States.  An initial test, known as the Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx), was slated for as early as Spring 2019, but in July 2019 Harvard announced the creation an external advisory panel to examine the potential ethical, environmental and geopolitical impacts of the project.

In sum: In order to save the planet, Bill Gates and partners are contemplating poisoning the atmosphere, the soil, the sea and the world’s flora and fauna.

Disadvantages:

Some of the negative effects of spraying chemicals or metal particles into the air have been pointed out:

  • Global collapse of food crops
  • Global rise in cancer from vitamin D deficiency
  • Global drop in IQs due to increased air pollution
  • Massive loss of habitat and ecosystems due to decreased sunlight and colder temperatures
  • Huge increase in global acid rain that will devastate forests and food crops (from conversion of SO2 into sulphuric acid)
  • Decreased plant production of oxygen that’s necessary for humans, primates and mammals to survive

More recently the Gates researchers have fixed on calcium carbonate as their geoengineering tool:

Carbon Capture and Storage

Bill Gates has invested in a Canadian company called Carbon Engineering, which hopes to stop climate change through carbon capture, ie by sucking out of the atmosphere carbon dioxide which has been released by the combustion of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas for energy generation or in transport. Once filtered from the air, the carbon dioxide is transported and stored. The Gates-funded project is hoping to process the captured carbon to create synthetic diesel or petrol for use in transport which would be less polluting than regular fuels.

Hurricane Calming

Bill Gates and associates have applied for patents for procedures to manage hurricanes.  The five U.S. Patent and Trade Office patent applications propose slowing hurricanes by pumping cold, deep-ocean water in their paths from barges.

Veganism

Scientific studies indicate that methane and nitrous oxide have little or no effect on global temperatures, (see Sheahen and Allison; Thongchai). The United Nations, however, promotes the view that ‘raising animals to eat produces more greenhouse gasses (via methane and nitrous oxide) than all of the carbon dioxide excreted by automobiles, boats, planes and trains in the world combined’.

Bill Gates, while not himself a vegan, has been promoting evangelical veganism, funding it via such enterprises as Beyond Meat, and Impossible Food, both of which specialise in artificial meat.

GMO and Monsanto

In 2006 the Bill & Melinda Gates and Rockefeller Foundations formed an alliance to help spur a ‘Green Revolution in Africa , with $100 million provided by the Gates Foundation and another $50 million by the Rockefeller Foundation. A major aim of the Alliance is to encourage the use of pesticides and ‘advanced’ seeds (ie genetically modified).

In 2010 Bill Gates bought 500,000 shares in Monsanto, the producer of pesticides such as the glyphosate weedkiller Roundup,  and also the world’s largest producer of genetically modified food.

Over the last four years, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated a total of $15 million to two global campaigns aimed at ‘ending world hunger’, by encouraging small farmers around the world to use GMOs.

Genetically modified food has been tied to numerous health ailments such as sterility and infant mortality, but evidence of the dangers of GMO is widely ignored or underplayed  – 91% of US soy is reported to be genetically modified.

The British Government Has Colluded with Monsanto and Should Be Held Accountable in the International Criminal Court .

The Fight against Malaria

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have been involved in a large number of initiatives to eradicate malaria, from practical solutions to prevent mosquito access to homes, to distributing insecticide-soaked nets, to  genome editing of mosquitos.  The Foundation is partnering with company Oxitec to develop a genetically engineered male mosquito designed to kill off future generations of malaria-transmitting bugs.

The Doomsday Crop Diversity Vault

While the Gates and Rockefeller Foundations are heavily promoting GMO to farmers, at the same time they are investing in the Doomsday Crop Diversity Vault, a seed bank located in Norway. Other investors include the Norwegian government, and major GMO seed and agrichemical companies. (See How Bill Gates, Syngenta and Rockefeller Became Custodians of the Doomsday Crop Diversity Vault)

It is no accident that the Rockefeller and Gates foundations are teaming up to push a GMO-style Green Revolution in Africa at the same time they are quietly financing the ‘doomsday seed vault’ on Svalbard. The GMO agribusiness giants are up to their ears in the Svalbard project.

‘Indeed, the entire Svalbard enterprise and the people involved call up the worst catastrophe images of the Michael Crichton bestseller, Andromeda Strain, a sci-fi thriller where a deadly disease of extraterrestrial origin causes rapid, fatal clotting of the blood threatening the entire human species. In Svalbard, the future world’s most secure seed repository will be guarded by the policemen of the GMO Green Revolution–the Rockefeller and Gates Foundations, Syngenta, DuPont and CGIAR.’ (F. William Engdahl, ‘Doomsday Seed Vault’ in the Arctic)

Surveillance of Humanity from Space

Bill Gates is one of a small group of powerhouse investors in EarthNow, a new company looking to provide satellite imagery and live video in virtually real-time. This would consists of  a network of satellites that could see any corner of the globe and provide live video with a latency of about a second. (Bill Gates Backs Plan to Serveil the Entire Planet From Space)

A Global Database of Newborns

At the mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C. in 2010, Bill Gates proposed a plan to use wireless technology to register every newborn on the planet in a vaccine database, to ensure that all children are vaccinated on time.

Micro Implants to Provide Contraception

The Gates Foundation has funded the Massachusettes Institute of Technology’s  development of a contraceptive computer chip that can be controlled by remote control.  The chip is implanted under a woman’s skin, releasing a small dose of the hormone levonorgestrel.

Micro Implants to Vaccinate Babies

The Gates Foundation is funding MIT to develop a microparticle implant that will automatically administer vaccines over time in babies.

Vaccination

Vaccination is the philanthropic area that Bill Gates is best known for – he has a stated aim of vaccine equity, ie that the world’s poor are as fully vaccinated as the rich, and that poor countries should prioritise vaccination

In 1998 Bill and Melinda Gates announced a $100 Million gift to establish the Bill and Melinda Gates Children’s Vaccine Program.

In 2000 the Gates Foundation created the Global Fund for Childrens Vaccines (GAVI), an international collaboration of the Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, various governments, the World Bank, WHO, the International Association of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers, Vaccine Makers and UNICEF.

The Gates Foundation has paid an Argentinian company to produce and stockpile thimerosal, the mercury derivative that is controversially added to vaccines (mercury is considered so toxic that mercury barometers have been banned in the United Kingdom).

In 2018 the Gates Foundation teamed up with Google co-founder Larry Page to launch launch the Universal Influenza Vaccine Development Grand Challenge. The challenge will award $250,000 to $2 million in funding over two years to the most promising proposals for a universal flu vaccine.

Disastrous Outcomes

The Gates Foundation and its partners are associated with numerous vaccine initiatives in third-world countries which have been considered unethical and/or had disastrous outcomes.

Gates and the pharmaceutical companies have been accused of targeting illiterate adolescents without consent for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) trials in India, Uganda and Peru.  In 2014, India  sued the Gates Foundation for a campaign ‘to vaccinate tribal children with vaccines (HPV) which caused injury and death, and where consent was fabricated’. In a report to the India Parliament, healthcare experts reported that thousands of mostly illiterate families and adolescent children in the impoverished Khammam district of Andhra Pradesh were targeted without consent by the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH) in HPV vaccine trials (PATH administers the Bill and Melinda Gates Children’s Vaccine Program).

Polio: In 2000 the oral polio vaccine was finally dropped from US schedules after four decades when the authorities finally admitted that the vaccine actually caused paralysis.  The Gates Foundation however has involved itself in an aggressive campaign to promote the oral polio vaccine in India.  This has resulted in 47,500 cases of paralysis or death in India in 2011 alone.

Tetanus vaccine:  The Gates Foundation funded the distribution in Kenya of a tetanus vaccine containing the antigen human chorionic gonadatropin (HCG) that renders a woman infertile and causes miscarriage.

Meningitis vaccine: The Gates Foundation funded the distribution of the meningitis vaccine MenAfriVac in Chad.  In one village alone 50 children were paralysed as a consequence: the vaccine reportedly caused each of the children, some of whom were as young as seven, to suffer hallucinations, convulsions, and ultimately paralysis.

Malawi: Vaccination at Gunpoint. In 2011, the Malawi Voice reported that a group of families who took their children out of the country, to Mozambique, to avoid the free measles vaccine that was being distributed, were rounded up by police and vaccinated at gunpoint upon returning to the country.  Malawi’s commitment, and its helpful ‘health surveillance assistants’ were praised by Melinda Gates, who termed as Malawi one of the few countries ‘on track to reach the UN Millennium Development Goal’.

The Indian Medical Journal has criticised the Gates/WHO programme of promoting the Pentavalent vaccine, when its use has been discontinued in some countries following adverse reactions and deaths in children.

The same IMJ editorial also questions the rationale for introducing haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine in India where the incidence of Hib disease is very low. It estimates that vaccinating 25 million babies could at best save 350 children from Hib meningitis and Hib pneumonia but ‘3125 children will die from vaccine adverse effects’.

Conflict of interest and bad faith:

Bill Gates has huge investments in pharmaceuticals .

Bill Gates opposes Donald Trump setting up safety testing for vaccines.

Criticism

Bill Gates’ prioritising of vaccines has been questioned:

‘Health experts point out that were the intent of Gates really to improve the health and well-being of black Africans, the same hundreds of millions of dollars the Gates Foundation has invested in untested and unsafe vaccines could be used in providing minimal sanitary water and sewage systems.’ (F. William Engdahl)

And:

‘Bill Gates and George Soros are not trying to save poor people in Africa, or India or Brazil. They don’t care at all about the health of underprivileged societies, but what they do care about is making sure these folks can’t reproduce, and that if they do reproduce, they are creating deformed, severely autistic, cancer-ridden beings that won’t reproduce or even lead productive lives, but rather cost their parents all of their earnings and savings just to care for them.’ (S.

‘Activism’

In early 2019 a controversial incident arose at a March for Life whereby a Native American man, Nathan Phillips, confronted a group of schoolboys from Covington Catholic High School who were late mercilessly smeared by the media.  Nathan Philips is backed by the non-profit Native Youth Leadership Alliance, whose funding partners include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation.

Media

In 2010 the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation made a grant to ABC News  towards a year long series on health issues in the third world for ABC News.

The Gates and Rockefeller Foundations are both ‘philanthropic partners’ to the British newspaper The Guardian, which pursues a line of climate catastrophism in articles such as The Three Degrees World: the Cities that Will be Drowned by Global Warming  or ‘Domino-effect of climate events could move Earth into a “hothouse’ state”‘ (which relies on the findings of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, also Gates-funded).

One world government

Bill Gates is a strong advocate of global governance, ie by the United Nations.

Speaking with Germany’s ‘Süddeutsche Zeitung’ newspaper, Gates said that the United Nations does not have enough power and must be granted full governmental control ‘for the good of humanity’. (Bill Gates: Humanity Badly Needs a Global Government)

Note that United Nations reports on the environment, climate or global government repeatedly recommend, along with greater powers for the United Nations bureaucracy, a greater say for affiliated non-government organisations (such as the Gates and Rockefeller Foundations).  See for example Agenda 21, Chap 27: ‘Strengthening the role of non-governmental organizations: partners for sustainable development’.

The Club of Rome

The activities of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation synchronise with the aims of the Club of Rome, of which Bill Gates is commonly cited as a member.  The Club of Rome was founded by David Rockefeller as one of a group of organisations, including Bilderberg which Gates has attended, formed for the purpose of creating one-world government by an elite, all of which David Rockefeller himself played a major role in.

The Club of Rome has used environmental causes and claims of crisis to achieve its goals, such the the global population scare, and peak oil. Since the late 1970s David Rockefeller, Bill Gates and other members of the Club of Rome have spent billions promoting the narrative that CO2 causes global warming aka ‘climate change’.

Manufactured hysteria about ‘climate change’, in tandem with a claim of concern for ‘biodiversity’,  is used to justify calls for high density urbanisation, population reduction, and more power to the United Nations and its affiliated NGOs.

Comment:

The technological initiatives Bill Gates is involved in represent a reversal of movements which reject the unnatural and anti-intuitive – chemicals, toxins, GMO – and aspire to the natural, such as organic gardening or nutrition.  For the Gates Foundation science is not a tool to understand and exploit natural processes, it is a means of incorporating the unnatural and artificial into our lives.  Biology is dead – chemistry is everything.

The Globalism of Climate: How Faux Environmental Concern Hides Desire to Rule the World

[Edit: it was in 1988, not 1986, that Hansen and Wirth sabotaged the air conditioning in a US Senate committee room in order to make their global warming point]

The primary function of ‘global warming’ alarmism, aka as the ‘climate crisis,’ is to facilitate a one-world government, administered by the United Nations bureaucracy.

Regardless of the science involved (or lack of it), there are a number of indisputable facts about the background to anthropogenic global warming alarmism:

  • The long-standing plan for global government by an elite;
  • The one-to-one equivalence between the globalists and the creators of climate alarmism, represented above all by David Rockefeller and his protégé Maurice Strong;
  • The manifest intention of UN reports on ‘climate’ and the environment to give more power to the UN bureaucracy and to corporate-owned non-government organisations (NGOs).

David Rockefeller

It was David Rockefeller who, ably assisted by Maurice Strong, created and drove the wildly successful ‘Global Warming’ strategy.

David Rockefeller (1915-2017) was the youngest of John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s six children, and a grandson of John D. Rockefeller. He was well known as chairman and chief executive of Chase Manhattan Corporation and in the words of the obituary published by Rockefeller University, ‘one of the greatest philanthropists of our time’. He is viewed in a somwhat different light by his critics, e.g. David Rockefeller: An Immoral Life of Evil and Treason.

David Rockefeller was heir to the Rockefeller ambition to create global governance by an elite. This almost certainly goes back to the confidential meeting between Alphonse de Rothschild and either John Rockefeller or his agents in 1892, and before that to Cecil Rhodes’ founding of a secret society, the Round Table, of which Nathaniel Rothschild was a member. The purpose of the society was to ‘bring the whole of the civilised world’ under one rulership.  To that end, i.e. of creating one-world government, David’s father John D. Rockefeller, Jr, together with  Rothschild agents, engineered the creation of first the League of Nations and then, after that project failed due to United States scepticism, of the United Nations. See How Cecil Rhodes Fathered the Modern Globalist Movement: a Timeline.

David Rockefeller in his turn acted to strengthen, expand and control through generous funding the role of the United Nations.

David Rockefeller was the common denominator amongst the groups descended from Rhodes original secret society, the groups of the Round Table, whose function is to plan and achieve global governance by an elite, as intended by Cecil Rhodes.

  • 1921 His father John D. Rockefeller, Jr, founded the Council on Foreign Relations and David Rockefeller was chairman of CFR from 1970 until 1985. At the same time,
  • 1921 John D. Rockefeller, Jr founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs, aka Chatham House. Chatham House has continued to receive funding from the Rockefeller Foundation from inception, and is still listed by the Foundation as a grantee today.
  • 1954 David Rockefeller was a founding member of Bilderberg, whose primary function is to oversee the ‘European project’.  He served on the advisory board and was a regular attendee at its meetings, even at the age of 98.
  • 1968 He founded the Club of Rome, the ‘apex of the New World Order’.
  • 1973 He founded the Trilateral Commission to bring together high ranking people politicians and business people from the US, Western Europe and Japan to plan one-world government.

The Club of Rome (CoR)

The Club of Rome is a global think tank on behalf of the elite environmental movement. It describes itself as ‘an organisation of individuals who share a common concern for the future of humanity and strive to make a difference’.

The main purpose of the Club of Rome is to formulate crisis through which the world can be united under a world government.’ Compleat Patriot.

From inception, it is apparent that the Club of Rome was seeking a strategy to provide a catalyst for radical change in society, to create Hegelian dialect, or order out of chaos.

The Club of Rome specialises in ‘crisis creation’ using the Hegelian Dialectic to accomplish their goals (Jeremiah Project, video)

The CoR first promoted the population scare of the 1970’s, then, when the promised famine failed to eventuate, environmentalism, and then finally in 1977, anthropogenic global warming alarmism, which has succeeded admirably, if only because of the huge sums of money thrown at it.

The Club of Rome was founded by David Rockefeller.

1965, June 12-19, the Conference on Conditions of World Order is held at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio, Italy, with papers given by Henry A. Kissinger and others. Three years later,

1968, April The Club of Rome is founded in Bellagio by ‘a think-tank of financiers, scientists, economists, politicians, heads of state, and industrialists from ten different countries’. Members of the Club of Rome have included Ted Turner, George Soros, Henry Kissinger, Bill Gates, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Bill Gates and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands (a long list here).

Inventing a Common Adversary

The threat of environmental crisis will be the international disaster key that will unlock the New World Order (Mikhail Gorbachev, member of Club of Rome, Monetary and Economic Review, 1996, 5).

The Club of Rome has produced a large number of reports proposing population reduction and global government on the basis of environmental crisis.

1972 The Limits to Growth warns of overpopulation and the need for sustainable development.

The Club of Rome’s Depopulation Agenda

  • The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.” Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point, 1974
  • “… the resultant ideal sustainable population is hence more than 500 million but less than one billion.” Club of Rome, Goals for Mankind, 1976.
  • ‘World population needs to be decreased by 50%’ Henry Kissinger, member of CoR.
  • “the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.” Mikhail Gorbachev, Former President of the Soviet Union, member of CoR.
  • ‘A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” Ted Turner, founder of CNN, major UN donor, member of CoR.
  • In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad not to say it. Jacques Cousteau, French naval officer and explorer, member of the CoR.
  • “If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.’ Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, according to Green Agenda a member of CoR, father of four. (The Green Agenda)

In short:

Scratch a CoR member and there is a global depopulation misanthrope inside (Bill Elder, here in comments)

The current fad of referring to looming extinction, as in the corporate-owned protest group Extinction Rebellion, has therefore a double entendre – the intended extinction is, of course, that of most of the human race.

Environmentalism is used to justify moving people from rural areas into the city, and increased control over people’s lives and property by local and central government. Above all environmentalism, and especially the global warming scare, are being used by the Club of Rome and its members to create acceptance for increasing powers for the corporate-owned United Nations bureaucracy and the corporate-owned NGOs affiliated to the United Nations.

The real purpose of the establishment environmental movement is to build the structures (political, economic, ideological etc) of the ultimate monopoly: a corporate-communist world government. David Richards

1974 Club of Rome published Mankind at the Turning Point: ‘This report develops further the concept on the World Problematique ‘. Mankind is faced by a multitude of crises: ‘the population crisis, the environmental crisis, the world food crisis, the energy crisis, the raw material crisis, amongst others’ […]

“The solution of these crises can be developed only in a global context with full and explicit recognition of the emerging world system and on a long-term basis. This would necessitate, among other changes, a new world economic order and a global resources allocation system…”

Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb, 1968, and CoR member, exemplifies the alarmist tactics of the Club of Rome, warning of mass extinction from famine, global cooling, global warming, or pollution:

  • “In the 1970s the world will undergo famines – hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death…”– Paul Ehrlich, the Population Bomb, 1968
  • “The Population of the U.S. will shrink from 250 million to about 22.5 million before 1999 because of famine and global warming.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1968
  • “I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1969
  • “Smog disasters in 1973 might kill 200,000 people in New York and Los Angeles” – Paul Ehrlich, 1969
  • “Falling temperatures will cause the ice caps to sink into the ocean, producing a global tidal wave that could wipe out a substantial portion of mankind, and the sea level could rise 60 to 100 feet.” – Paul Ehrlich, 1970

A year after the founding of the Club of Rome:

1969 The Rockefeller Foundation (RF) approved ‘its first full-fledged environmental effort‘, the Quality of the Environment (QE) program. (The program supported for some years the work of the CRU at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, which in 2009 achieved notoriety as the centre of the ‘climategate’ scandal.)

Maurice Strong

Biographies: Official biography, now ‘crashed’; Sourcewatch (neutral/positive), James Corbett, (highly critical); Ronald Bailey (highly critical)

In James Corbett’s words, Maurice Strong rose from being ‘a dirt poor high school dropout from Oak Lake, Manitoba, to become an international wheeler-dealer who is responsible for shaping our modern day globalist institutions’.

As a Rockefeller asset Maurice Strong (1929-2015) was a major force behind both the global warming narrative and the linking of that narrative with an argument for ever greater powers for the corporate-owned United Nations bureaucracy. His crowning achievement was the 2nd Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero in 1992.

Strong met David Rockefeller at the age of 18, and under Rockefeller’s patronage was given a minor, temporary position with the United Nations. Thereafter continuing sponsorship by Rockefeller led to a career in oil, and in parallel one as a mover and shaker in Canadian politics, including heading the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) – David Rockefeller was grooming Strong for great things.

Apparently impressed by his work at CIDA, UN Secretary General U Thant asked Strong to organize what became the first Earth Summit — the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment in 1972.’

1971 Stockholm: The UN Conference on the Human Environment (the Earth Summit)

In preparation for the Conference Strong commissioned a report on the state of the planet, Only One Earth: The Care and Maintenance of a Small Planet. The authors were Rene Dubos a microbiologist employed by Rockefeller researching antibiotics, with no previous interest in environmentalism, and BarbaraWard, who during the war had worked for the UK Ministry of Information before becoming the foreign editor of The Economist.

The Stockholm Conference signaled the beginning of modern environmental diplomacy.  As an outcome of the Summit Maurice Strong founded and was first director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), to coordinate the UN’s environmental activities and assist developing countries in implementing ‘environmentally sound’ policies and practices.

The Global Cooling Scare

As recently as the mid-1970s the threat of global cooling, rather than global warming, was a recurrent theme in the media. The 140 Year Failed History of “Gorebull Warming” and “Ice Ages Doom”‘ gives some examples:

  • 1974 – “…the facts of the present climate change are such that the most optimistic experts would assign near certainty to major crop failure…mass deaths by starvation, and probably anarchy and violence” – New York Times
  • 1975 Scientists Ponder Why World’s Climate is Changing; A Major Cooling Widely Considered to Be InevitableNew York Times, May 21st, 1975
  • 1975 – “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind” Nigel Calder, editor, New Scientist magazine, in an article in International Wildlife Magazine
  • 1976 – “Even U.S. farms may be hit by cooling trend” – U.S. News and World Report

A 1974 CIA report, A Study of Climatological Research As It Pertains to Intelligence Problems referred to cold, floods and also drought, but overall assuming global cooling.

David Rockefeller and Maurice Strong Kick Off the Global Warming Scare

1977 From this point, ‘Scientific opinion tends to converge on global warming, not cooling, as the chief climate risk in the next century’.

1977 One of the first significant reports on ‘global warming’ was the report Energy and Climate, which warned that ‘average temperatures may rise 6 degrees Celsius by 2050 due to the burning of coal’ – perhaps the first example of climate catastrophism.

Energy and Climate was a Rockefeller report, produced by a Rockefeller employee. The report was prepared by the National Research Council (founded in 1916  with the help of John D. Rockefeller). At the time the chairman of NRC, Philip Handler, was simultaneously on the Board of Trustees of Rockefeller University, at a time when David Rockefeller chaired the Board’s Executive Committee.

1980 United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), founded by Maurice Strong, produces the World Conservation Strategy. The strategy declares catogorically:

The most acute climatic problem, however, is carbon dioxide accumulation
as a result of the burning of fossil fuel, deforestation and changes in land use. At present rates of increase, the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide may produce a significant warming of the lower atmosphere before the middle of the next century, particularly in the polar regions. This warming would probably change temperature patterns throughout most of the world, benefitting some regions and damaging others, possibly severely .

Thus from a position of warning about global cooling as late as 1976, by 1980, a mere four years later, the ‘science was settled’ by Rockefeller and Strong in favour of global warming, caused by human emissions of CO2, as the most acute climatic problem.

1981 NASA scientist James Hansen predicted that burning fossil fuels would increase global temperatures by 4.5 degrees Fahrenheit (2.5 degrees Celsius) by the end of the century. In 1988 Hansen and Senator Timothy Wirth sabotaged the air conditioning in a US Senate committee room, on the likely hottest day of a hot summer, in order to persuade the committee of global warming. This is considered a turning point in the US consciousness of the global warming ‘crisis’ – at least at a political level.

In his Book, Science Under Siege, Michael Fumento quoted Timothy Wirth as saying in 1988,

‘We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.’

The Global Warming-Climate Change Scam

The global warming project has been characterised by fake data, dirty tricks and relentless dishonesty, including a penchant for sensational and ludicrous claims of extreme weather events which foretell human extinction, climate meltdown. There is a shift of emphasis once claims are debunked – the prophesies of a six degree rise in global temperature have given way to warnings that even a two degree increase in temperature will result in catastrophic consequences for life on earth (see Tim Ball, Seven Ways to Spot Climate Change Propaganda).

The many thousands of scientists (see also 10,000 international scientists) who have protested the corruption of science and the demonisation of CO2, through articles, petitions and letters to world leaders, have had no impact in the face of the billions spent at every level of propaganda.

The change in emphasis from ‘global warming to ‘climate’ was not just to duck the issue of the failure of nature to deliver the said warming. It simplifies the terminology, and provides a one word term to describe the cult, i.e.the cult of climate – anyone who disagrees that an increase in CO2 will cause catastrophic global warming is now a climate denier. Suppression of dissent has become normalised, with calls for criminalisation of ‘climate denial’.

In New Zealand, as elsewhere, criticism even of the claim of consensus is censored, for example, NZ’s major source of mainstream news, Stuff.

Stuff

The adoption of ‘global warming’ as a cause turned out to be a brilliant strategic move for the global government project, backed as it has been by huge sums, total commitment and inspired execution.

The United Nations Bureaucracy Administers the Global Warming Scare

‘Global warming is a global problem, they insist, that national governments alone cannot resolve. […] The only solution, we are told, a one world government’ (Tim Ball).

For twenty years Maurice Strong was involved in the organisation of UN conferences and the commissioning of UN reports which tied in global warming with global government. The reports have certain things in common. They:

  • Assume that the claim that CO2 causes global warming is unquestioned and unquestionable;
  • Ensure that references to ‘climate change’ appear whenever any aspect of planning is considered;
  • Recommend increased powers to the United Nations bureaucracy;
  • Recommend increased participation for ‘civil society’, i.e. non-government organisations affiliated to the UN.

United Nations and ‘Civil Society’

Affiliated NGOs include such charities as the Rockefeller Foundation, George Soros’s Open Society Foundation, Carnegie Foundation and a large number of charities funded by the same, such as Greenpeace and Oxfam. The role of the major foundations in the UN is apparent if one looks, for, example at UN Women, which lists as ‘some of our partners’: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Elizabeth Arden, Ford Foundation, Open Society Foundation, Procter & Gamble, PROYA Cosmetics Co. Ltd, Rockefeller Foundation, The Coca-Cola Company, Unilever, and Zonta International Foundation.

Major UN conferences, which are financially supported by NGOs, are increasingly accompanied by a forum of NGO representatives, the NGO’s being selected by UN bureaucrats (like Maurice Strong). (The CGG has benefited substantially from the largesse of the MacArthur, Carnegie, and Ford Foundations.)

‘This kind of international gabfest is, of course, a sinister parody of democracy. Very few of even the larger international NGOs are operationally democratic, in the sense that members elect officers or direct policy on particular issues. Arguably it is more often money than membership that determines influence, and money more often represents the support of centralized elites, such as major foundations, than of the grass roots. (Hofstra University law professor Peter Spiro, quoted by Ronald Bailey).

1987 Our Common Future (the Brundtland Report.)

The World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED), set up in 1983, was chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Prime Minister of Norway who has held several high posts in the UN; Maurice Strong was a member. In 1987 they published a report named ‘Our Common Future.

The report:

  • defines ‘sustainable development’ for the first time, as ‘development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’.
  • refers to ‘global warming’ throughout, and specifically attributes it to CO2, and also
  • assumes an inevitable move to the cities, making no recommendations to counter this.

1987 The 4th World Wilderness Congress, Colorado

The Brundtland report was timed to appear just before the 4th World Wilderness Congress, organised by Maurice Strong, and involving 2,000 delegates from 64 countries (proceedings: For the Conservation of Earth). The whole affair appears to have been a hijack by David Rockefeller, in view of the appearance of himself with associates such as Strong and Brundtland, who had not attended previous Congresses.

There were a number of significant speeches:

  • Gro Harlem Brundtland spoke to the report ‘Our Common Future’ urging a merging of economy and ecology.
  • Both Maurice Strong and Michael Sweatman presented papers calling for global conservation finance mechanisms (which eventually led to the $1.1 billion Global Environment Facility, founded in 1992).
  • Irving Mintzer (with no relevant qualifications and currently chief strategist with the Potomac energy fund) presented ‘Global Climate Change and Its Effects on Wildlands‘, claiming ‘If current trends continue, the rate of global warming over the next 50 years will exceed that of the last 10,000 years’.
  • David Rockefeller spoke on ‘The Need for Partnership’. His purpose, however, was to reiterate important points made elsewhere: the role of carbon dioxide, the need for a World Conservation Bank and the importance of making environmental concerns integral to any economic discussion and vice-versa.

According to George Hunt, Edmund de Rothschild spent six days at the conference although his name does not appear in the proceedings – . Hunt recorded Rothschild speaking about the conservation banking programme (video, from 2:00) -(de Rothschild was a founder member of the Wilderness Foundation and had been involved in previous Congresses).

Hunt discusses here the implications of the Conservation Banking Programme, later reincarnated as the Global Environment Facility.

  • Interviewer: ‘But what’s really happened is that the Brazilians will have given up title to millions of acres of land and in exchange the Chase Manhattan will get its loan to Brazil paid off by the WCB.’
  • Hunt: ‘You got it’

1991 CoR publishes the First Global Revolution. According to the CoR website, it offers ‘both a warning and an approach to a possible solution to world problems’. Topics include ‘containment of global warming: the need to reduce global emissions of carbon dioxide, to encourage reforestation, to conserve traditional forms of energy and develop alternatives’. It also has the following revealing quote:

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which demands the solidarity of all peoples.” (Alexander King & Bertrand Schneider, The First Global Revolution p. 115)

1991 April Prince Charles hosts a two day conference on board the Britannia, with in attendance Al Gore, Maurice Strong, senior officials from the World Bank, chief executives from companies such as Shell and British Petroleum, the key NGOs, and other officials. According to what Joan Veon learned from Maurice Strong, Charles’s goal ‘was to bring together key international figures in an attempt to achieve a degree of harmony between the various countries that would happen at the Rio Earth Summit to be held the next year’ ‘Sustainable Development, Agenda 21 and Prince Charles).

The apex of Maurice Strong’s career was the UNCED Conference at Rio. First, however, let us roll back to 1976, to Habitat 1

Habitat 1

1976 The First UN Conference on Human Settlements and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat I) was held in Vancouver, Canada, 31 May to 11 June . The Conference organising body ‘drew on the resources of’ amongst others, United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP). A separate ‘forum’ for NGOS and ‘ordinary citizens’ was held in conjunction.

The Conference is notable in two ways.  Firstly the emphasis in the two conference documents, the report and the Vancouver Declaration on Human Settlements (the latter available for signature), on such issues as urbanisation and how to facilitate it, the problem of population growth, and above all the undesirability of private ownership. The most quoted passage from Habitat 1 concerns private ownership of and public control of land.

Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlements, cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. […] Public control of land use is therefore indispensable to its protection as an asset and the achievement of the long-term objectives of human settlement policies and strategies.

This view is reflected in the Vancouver Declaration:

Land is one of the fundamental elements in human settlements. Every State has the right to take the necessary steps to maintain under public control the use, possession, disposal and reservation of land.

The conference is also memorable for the choice of poster, which gives an indication of what globalists have in mind for the masses.

1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development (aka Earth Summit 2, UNCED, or simply ‘Rio’), Rio de Janeiro

‘The Earth Summit was a landmark in the career of Maurice Strong.’ (UNEP, Maurice Strong’s 85th birthday)

No previous UN conference had ever received such planning and promotion. Maurice Strong was named to head the conference, which was dubbed “Earth Summit II.” He had chaired the first “Earth Summit” in 1972 and had participated in every environmental commission and conference since. (Strong became Chairman of the Board of WRI in 1994). […]

The NGO community, coordinated through the IUCN and the WRI publication Networking, used the igc.apc.org computer networks extensively to funnel information to and from the UNCED agenda planners, and to plan the NGO Forum. UNCED provided an opportunity for the NGOs to perfect the lobbying process. With the blessings of and assistance from the UNEP, the NGOs scheduled a “Forum” the week immediately preceding the official conference.

Nearly 8,000 NGOs were officially certified to participate in the UNCED Forum, and another 4,000 NGOs were observers, swelling the total attendance at UNCED to more than 40,000 people — the largest environmental gathering the world has ever known. UNCED may be recorded in history as the most significant event the world has ever known; it was the watershed event that began the final march to global governance.
(Henry Lamb, ‘Global Governance: The Final March’)

To guide the agenda for the conference, UNEP and its NGO partners published two major documents, Caring for the Earth, and Global Biodiversity Strategy (Lamb).  The Summit resulted in the following documents, Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, Agenda 21, and Forest Principles, and opened for signature the following legally binding agreements (Rio Convention): Convention on Biological Diversity,  Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. (Wikipedia)

In order to ensure compliance to the agreements at Rio (particularly the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development and Agenda 21), delegates to the Earth Summit established the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD). […]  Green Cross International was founded to build upon the work of the Summit. (Wikipedia)

Green Cross International was founded by Club of Rome stalwart and dedicated globalist Mikhail Gorbachev.

Agenda 21

Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment (Sustainable Development Goals )

Or to put it another way:

It’s all happy, feely, smiling faces and rhetoric about “how we care”, when the truth is that Agenda 21 is a vicious, brutal, heartless strategy to impose a global Orwellian state and forcibly depopulate humanity. (Agenda 21: the Plan for a Global, Fascist Dictatorship) .

Agenda 21 addresses every aspect of modern life:

  1. Agriculture
  2. Biodiversity and Ecosystem Management
  3. Education
  4. Energy and Housing
  5. Population
  6. Public Health
  7. Resources and recycling
  8. Transportation, Sustainable Economic Development

Like all similar UN documents, it is full of positive values that nobody seriously disagrees with in principle, such as care of the environment, or adequate housing for all. Implicit in the document, however, is an assumption of greater control over every aspect of life. For example, from A Critical Analysis of Agenda 21 – United Nations Program of Action:

Human Settlements

Any movement of population that takes place will be highly controlled, and directed, by government regulations.  These so-called population policies, and programs, encouraged by the United Nations, will be used “to bring about demographic transition” (Ch. 5, Sec. 16), as it is referred to in Agenda 21, to reflect more of what the planners have envisioned.

The agenda plans to “expand areas under forest and tree cover,” (Ch. 11, Sec. 12-a) by forcing people out of their quiet rural homes, and into crowded cities: “As appropriate, they should also concentrate on activities aimed at facilitating the transition from rural to urban lifestyles and settlement patterns” (Ch. 7, Sec. 19)

This forced changed will be brought about by causing an increase in the cost of water, sanitation, and other essentials, to higher income neighborhoods, thus making it too expensive to live in these areas: ‘Reducing subsidies on, and recovering the full costs of, environmental and other services of high standard (e.g. water supply, sanitation, waste collection, roads, telecommunications) provided to higher income neighbourhoods;”  (Ch. 7, Sec. 16-ci)

People will be forced into, what the Agenda refers to as, “human settlement” areas, which will help transition these populations to new living areas, where your “resource needs, waste production, and ecosystem health” will be controlled by government: “In formulating human settlements policies, account should be taken of resource needs, waste production and ecosystem health.” (Ch. 5, Sec. 29)

The eventual goal of this forced population movement into human settlement areas is to get rid of private property, and have all land accessible, and owned, collectively, by the community: “ensure access to land to all households and, where appropriate, the encouragement of communally and collectively owned and managed land.”  (Ch. 7, Sec. 28)

How It Works

Agenda 21, the documents provided to the Summit, and the agreements that arise from the Summit, are dominated by two assumed, overriding and non-negotiable values, the two prongs of the environmentalist strategy – debate of the first never arises, and of the second is never permitted:

  • The concept of biodiversity has to take precedence over other rights, even of human life;
  • The non-negotiability of the Rockefeller catastrophic anthropogenic global warming narrative.

There are a number of recurring themes:

  • Urbanisation
  • States are constantly reminded of their right and duty to control all land
  • No opportunity is lost to expand the numbers and powers of the UN bureacracy and the role of non-government organisations.

The two prongs of climatism, the carbon scare and the biodiversity mandate, each facilitate the movement of people away from the countryside or the coast into high density cities, which is conducive to depopulation and to loss of private ownership.

Agenda 21 is referred to less and less, having acquired negative connotations – instead terms like sustainability, resilience, biodiversity, smart growth are prevalent, see Strzelczyk, Rothschild, UN Agenda 21 – Coming to a Neighborhood near You.

‘Undoubtedly, residents of any town, county, or city in the United States that treasure their freedom, liberty, and property rights couldn’t care less whether it’s called Agenda 21 or smart growth. A recent example of this can be found in Carroll County, Maryland, where a smart growth plan called Pathways was drafted by the County Planning Department. The plan, if enacted, proposed a breathtaking reshuffling of land rights:

  • Rezoning of thousands of acres of beautiful, low-density agricultural farmland and protected residential conservation land into office parks
  • Down-zoning of agriculture land to prevent future subdivision by farmers
  • Up-zoning of low-density residential land around small towns into higher density zoning to permit construction of hundreds or possibly thousands of inclusive housing units, including apartments and condominiums
  • Inclusive housing with placement of multi-family construction on in-fill lots within existing residential single family communities
  • Endorsement of government-sponsored housing initiatives (subsidies) to ensure healtheir, balanced neighbourhoods.’ (Strzelczyk, Rothschild)

After Rio

Maurice Strong and David Rockefeller worked hard to ensure that the proposals of Rio would be put into practice. Strong was active on a very large number of global bodies concerned with environment or development (which is always about the environment).

Mr. Strong continued to take a leading role in implementing the results of Rio through the establishment of The Earth Council, the Earth Charter movement, his chairmanship of The World Resources Institute, his membership on the Board of the International Institute for Sustainable Development, The Stockholm Environment Institute, [etc, etc, etc …]  He has also served as Senior Advisor to the Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio +20).’ (UN Press Release)

Meanwhile David Rockefeller created and funded a myriad of NGOs, all dedicated to pushing pushing the same messages of sustainability, diversity, resilience, very many work to ensure compliance at a local level, such as ICLEI or the Rockefeller founded 100 Resilient Cities – ‘think global, act local’ is the UN refrain. The Rockefeller foundations continue to fund UN institutions and conferences, academic institutions.  and of course political movements.  According to Inside Philanthropy: ‘Rockefeller’s climate change grants tend to amount to $10 million to $30 million annually, on average’.  All in all, the sums spent promoting the globalist narrative and agenda by the Rockefeller family alone must amount to billions, let alone the combined resources of the globalist elite – Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Turner, Gates, etc….

The megalomaniacs working towards a one-world government are contriving or relying on a number of factors:

  • Moral blackmail: capitalising on the sense of responsibility humans feel towards the environment, other species, and their descendants, though whether we are supposed to be saving ourselves, or saving the planet from ourselves is unclear.
  • Fear: the threats of rising seas and an earth turned into parched desert, though how effective this is is debatable.
  • Ignorance about global warming: people avoid the global warming issue because they do not feel confident they will understand the science.
  • Ignorance about the implications of signing up to Agenda 21, ‘biodiversity’, ‘sustainability’, ‘resilience’ and ‘smart growth’ for quality of life .
  • Apathy: the effects of Agenda 21 are felt locally, and in New Zealand at least there is considerable apathy when it comes to local politics.
  •  Agenda 21 will affect rural, provincial and coastal dwellers first and foremost, impact on residents of high density cities will be much slower.
  • The enormous sums available to globalists to spend on corruption of media, academic institutions, politicians and the UN bureaucracy, and on creating NGOs which work for their agenda.

The Cecil Rhodes vision of global governance is well on track.

Agenda 21 – In one easy lesson

10 Part Course on Agenda 21

Windows on the World has produced a number of broadcasts on how Agenda 21 is being implemented, especially at a local level (which is where most happens).

AGENDA 21 IS FULL-SPECTRUM DOMINATION BY THE 1%.

Nothing has been left out.

  • It guarantees both birth control and death control.
  • It promises the basic essentials of life in return for submission.
  • It exchanges critical thinking for re-education and brainwashing.
  • It destroys the epicenter of the family, society, and culture, allowing only one way to live. It groups the population into small contained areas to be more easily controlled.
  • It takes away from some to give to others who will be more easily managed by the promise of a full belly and a warm shelter.

It’s a parasitical representation of the 1%, feeding on the 99.

How Cecil Rhodes Fathered the Modern Globalist Movement: a Timeline

Driven by some of the wealthiest people of all time, a totalitarian one-world government by an elite, administered by the corporate-owned United Nations with the help of corporate owned NGOs, appears to be unstoppable.

The modern project for global governance by an elite goes back to Cecil Rhodes.

Cecil John Rhodes (5 July 1853 – 26 March 1902) was a British businessman, mining magnate and politician in southern Africa who served as Prime Minister of the Cape Colony from 1890 to 1896, and oversaw the foundation of Rhodesia.  One of Rhodes’ primary motivations in politics and business was his professed belief that the Anglo-Saxon race was, to quote his will, ‘the first race in the world’ (Wikipedia).

Secret Societies to Rule the World

1877 Cecil Rhodes writes at the age of 22 in a Confession of Faith :

‘Why should we not form a secret society with but one object the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilised world under British rule for the recovery of the United States for the making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire.’

1887 Nathaniel Rothschild finances the establishment of De Beer mining company by Cecil Rhodes.

1888 In his third will, Rhodes leaves everything to ‘Lord Rothschild’, referring to ‘the matter discussed between us’. Several of Rhodes’ wills refer to secret societies, and to Lord Rothschild, but the final will sets out the terms for the Rhodes scholarships, administered by Rothschild. (The scholarships were intended to develop future leaders in the Rhodes mould)

1891 Cecil Rhodes, William Stead and Lords Esher, Rothschild, Salisbury, Rosebery and Milner drew up a plan for a secret society (the “Round Table”) that aims to bring all habitable portions of the world under their influence and control. (See New World Order: The Founding Fathers). The very next year,

1892 Baron Alphonse de Rothschild flies to New York for secret talks at the headquarters of Standard Oil, owned by John D Rockefeller (described here).

Cecil Rhodes’ Round Table led to the founding in 1921 of both the US-based Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Chatham House in London, Bilderberg founded in 1954, the Club of Rome (1968) and the Trilateral Commission (1973).  All of these organisations are dedicated to global governance, and there is extensive overlap in terms of the principle players.  The same forces created the United Nations.

The League of Nations and the United Nations

See Henry Lamb’s fully referenced The Rise of Global Governance.

1920 Founding of League of Nations by Woodrow Wilson, advised by Edward Mandell House, who had close links with John D. Rockefeller, Paul Warburg and J.P. Morgan, both of whom  connected to the Rothschilds. (The League of Nations’ first undersecretary, Raymond B. Fosdick,  was president of the Rockefeller Foundation for 13 years.)  With the same adviser, or advisers, Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Bill (see The Federal Reserve Cartel.)

1920 The League of Nations fails when US Senate refuses to ratify it. The next year,

1921 The Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA, now Chatham House) in London, and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in New York are founded with the financial backing of  J. P. Morgan, Bernard Baruch, Otto Kahn, Jacob Schiff, Paul Warburg, and John D. Rockefeller. (Schiff had links to Rothschild, Warburg and Morgan),

1932 Franklin D. Roosevelt is elected to the White House in 1932 (‘the CFR was to Roosevelt what Edward House was to Woodrow Wilson’, Henry Lamb). Two weeks after Pearl Harbor, Secretary of State Cordell Hull recommends the creation of a Presidential Advisory Committee on Post War Foreign Policy. Ten of the committee’s 14 members are members of the CFR.

1945 The Committee designed and FDR sold the United Nations to the 50 nations that came to the post-war San Francisco conference – there were 47 CFR members in the official U.S. delegation including John Foster Dulles and Nelson Rockefeller. John D. Rockefeller, Jr, donated a hefty $8 million dollars to buy the Manhatten site for the UN headquarters.

The United Nations has always been intended to be the mechanism by which global governance by a wealthy elite will be achieved.

According to Senator Barry Goldwater:

The Senate approved the UN largely because it was assured by the State Department that the UN in no sense constituted a form of World Government and that neither the Senate nor the American people need be concerned that the United Nations or any of its agencies would interfere with the sovereignty of the United States or with the domestic affairs of the American People.

Five years later, in testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, CFR member James Warburg said ‘We shall have world government whether or not you like it –by conquest or consent’.

1949  NATO founded: according to CFR member and CIA Director William Bundy, the CFR was responsible for ‘contributions to the framework of thinking that underlay the Marshall Plan and NATO’ (Peter Grose, p.38).

New organisations have been founded with the same goals, i.e. all dedicated to achieving a one-world government:

1954 Bilderberg:  The CFR and Bilderberg then worked step by step towards the creation of the European Union (see Estulin’s True Story of the Bilderberg Group or Lendeman’s review.

1968 The Club of Rome – the heavy mob. It has two sibling organisations, the Club of Madrid and the Club of Budapest (see The Green Agenda: Club of Rome – Club of Budapest – Club of Madrid)

1973 Trilateral Commission, founded by David Rockefeller in order to bring together high ranking people politicians and business people from the US, Western Europe and Japan to plan one-world government.

The Club of Rome was likewise founded by David Rockefeller.   Its  members are actively and prominently engaged in activities which serve the globalist agenda, for example George Soros, a major sponsor of both colour revolutions and mass migration, and Bill Gates, a Malthusian heavily involved with the UN’s vaccination programme.

From its inception, the Club of Rome involved itself in crisis creation, playing a big part in the 1970s population scare, and exploring all the possibilities that first environmentalism and then ‘climate’ might offer.

‘The main purpose of the Club of Rome is to formulate crisis through which the world can be united under a world government.’ (Compleat Patriot).

Exploitation of the environmentalist movement, the idea of biodiversity taking precedence over the needs of humanity, and above all the wildly successful global warming scare, created and overseen by David Rockefeller, have allowed increased power to United Nations bureaucrats, and an ever-increasing role for corporate-owned non-government organisations.

1969 Paul Ehrlich publishes The Population Bomb

1971 Stockholm Earth Summit, organised by Rockefeller agent Maurice Strong

1977 David Rockefeller launches the Global Warming Scare

See Barbara McKenzie, ‘David Rockefeller Created and Drove the Global Warming Scare to Achieve One-World Government’

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which demands the solidarity of all peoples.” – Alexander King & Bertrand Schneider, The First Global Revolution (Club of Rome, 1991, p. 115).

Top NZ Scientist Describes “Global Warming” as Pseudo-Science

The widespread obsession with Global-Warming-Climate-Change, in opposition to all factual evidence, is quite incredible. (Dr David Kear)

Dr David Kear is a former Director General of New Zealand’s Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) – as such he would have been considered one of New Zealand’s top scientists. He has been publishing on sea levels since the 1950s.

In 2013 Dr Kear prepared a booklet in which he set out his views on the globalist climate project. In the booklet, Dr Kear describes:

  • his experience with the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change
  • the corrupted science behind the Global Warming narrative
  • the corrupted science behind the claims of rising sea-levels
  • the demonisation by “Global Warmers” of the “essential and innocent gas, carbon dioxide”.
  • how councils are making zoning & other decisions purely to satisfy a false narrative, with total disregard for the facts

Think globally, act locally (UN catchcryDr Kear describes how local councils are ignoring scientific fact in order to satisfy an agenda imposed on them from above. No matter if scientists, engineers and local observers all indicate that the sea is not rising, even retreating – once a council has decided on a policy that assumes that the sea IS rising, the council is immovable, and makes decisions on zoning and building codes on that basis.

Such policies will be being applied in coastal and non-coastal areas alike, thereby contributing to fulfillment of Agenda 21 goals of eventually eliminating small towns and villages and moving people to “sustainable” megacities.

GLOBAL WARMING alias CLIMATE
CHANGE

[the NON-EXISTENT, incredibly expensive,
THREAT TO US ALL,
including to our GRANDCHILDREN]

INTRODUCTION

“Climate Change” has become an important international topic – one might almost say religion. It began life as “Global Warming”.

So very many people, including politicians and “news people”, appear to have been overwhelmed by it, and have led others to believe, and follow the doctrine.

It has sponsored a good deal of international co-operation, which can only have been good.

However, the cost of “Combating Carbon” has been extremely high, and the debt and economic consequences are being passed on to present citizens, and, worse still, to future generations, including all our grandchildren.

This booklet attempts to raise, in citizens’ minds, questions regarding the enormous sums of money and effort being wasted on this topic.

Is it soundly based? Will it “do good” or “do bad” for ordinary citizens?  Do those promoting it deserve our attention?

This booklet suggests that Global-Warming-alias-Climate-Change, as proposed by “Global Warmers” makes no sense. You, as the reader, must judge that for yourself – not to help the writer of this booklet, but to help you and your family.

Do you think after reading all this that the proponents are absolutely reliable?

Should you add your voice to those against it, or at least talk to your councillors and members of parliament and see how they feel?

THE ANCIENT ACCEPTABLE VIEW

Our Earth’s climate is highly variable, and records show clearly that it always has been so. Animals and plants have had no option but to accept what comes, and to adapt life in ways that suit best. Evolution gave some help by introducing “the Survival of the Fittest”

Humans found early that their discussion and understanding were helped by a belief in some extraneous source being the cause of recorded changes of climate – perhaps with divine power. This booklet uses “Mother Nature” in that role to avoid wordy explanations.

Humans discovered that they could ameliorate climatic effects with buildings, clothing and the rest, and even create “microclimates” through windbreaks, forest clearing, artificial lakes, fossil fuel burning, and the rest. However, no-one originally thought seriously that man could change the basic influences to our climate – our Sun, our Earth’s rotation, the total quantity of our Planet’s water, and the rest. Mother Nature is able to change all such things (and has been doing so for some 3,000,000,000 years), but we are not.

THE NEW BELIEF – THE NEW PROBLEM

Introduction
That ancient and acceptable view was amended in the minds of some people whom I call the “Global Warmers”. I’ve heard nothing convincing about their so-called “Science”; but what they publish convinces me that it’s close to nonsense. The most convincing evidence against it comes mostly from the Global Warmers themselves.

In this booklet, the beliefs of “Global Warming”, and “Climate Change” have initial capital letters. That contrasts with natural warming, or natural changing of climate – indicated by lower case initial letters. The idea of a human cause is much less than 300 years old.

My interest in our changing climate and sea level
During fieldwork for a PhD thesis I found a coastal exposure of soft sandstone at Ohuka Creek, south of Port Waikato. There were Pliocene fossils of marine shellfish below an extensive horizontal bedding plane. Above that plane were more fossils, but of cool-lovinga plants. A finger could show the exact location of the abrupt change to the cooler climate at the onset of the first of the world-wide Pleistocene glaciations [Ice Ages]. Ice formed widely at the ultimate expense of sea water, so sea level fell. At Ohuka, sea bed had become land. Such changes are rarely seen in a continuous sequence, so I recorded it in a 1957 scientific paperb. That resulted in my joining an informal world-wide Group researching changing sea levels.

Most interest then was about the rate of sea level rise as the Earth warmed following the “Little Ice Age”. That cool period, from about 1500 to 1700 AD, halted winemaking in England and taro cropping in New Zealand. Our Group determined the rate of sea level rise in many different World regions, from widely-available readings of tide gauges (less variable than those of thermometers). The average for us all was 125 mm/century (“125” here). Hence it would take 8 centuries for sea level to rise 1m – no serious threat to us.

Global Warming Dawns Subsequently, I attended many international science conferences representing DSIR, NZ or Pacific Nations. I noted the words “Global Warming” appearing increasingly in paper titles, and sensed a growing number of adherents. Those latter arranged a first-ever “Conference on Global Warming” in Vienna in 1985. Unlike most such meetings, where a communiqué summarising achievements was released on the final day, the full results of this one were delayed for over 2 years.

When they did appear (front page NZ Herald, two days before Christmas 1987) a World Declaration included “Overseas scientists have estimated that the seas around New Zealand will rise by up to 1.4 m in the next 40 years”. That article concentrated on the massive consequent problems, caused by our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, but gave no adequate supporting science. That rate of rise was equivalent to 3,500 mm/century, 28 times faster than our 125. Hence we stupidly ignored it, thinking noone could possibly believe it. But the World did believe, and the Global Warming mirage was born. Had 3,500 been true, sea level should have risen by almost 1 m by today – it hasn’t, not even closely.

This showed unambiguously that those “Overseas Scientists” were not true scientists. They ignored a most important basic rule of true science “Thou shall not publish Science without first checking it. A check against local tide gauges would have shown how wrong 1.4 m in 40 yrs was; they simply hadn’t bothered to check. That was a First Grave Error.

Australian government scientists were concerned about the effects on Pacific Island nations by any sea level rise of around 3,500 mm/century, and launched a project to determine the correct figure at that time. They announced the result at the 1992 meeting of SOPAC – a geoscientific organisation of South Pacific nations. Their figure was 122 mm/century, confirming the order of magnitude of our group’s 125 average value.

Fooling the World The Global Warmers persisted with their use of pseudo-science and made further predictions. Understandably they too all proved wrong. At conferences I began to hear, regardless of the science involved, when a speaker wished to “rubbish” some scientific idea or research, he/she stated that conclusion firmly, and followed it by “Just like Global Warming”. Clearly the Global Warmers heard that too. They didn’t change their pseudo-science, but cleverly changed the name to ‘Climate Change”. [One can disprove warming, but the words change of climate can’t be proved wrong].

The United Nations became interested – major sea level rise could cause havoc in low-lying areas or island groups. They established an Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) and invited nations to send delegates. Not surprisingly those chosen were almost entirely Global Warmers, because they clearly knew something about it. But to do them credit the Panel members acted a little more like true scientists than those earlier.

They accepted that “1.4 m in 40 yrs” was wrong and re-evaluated it as “0.49 m by 2100”, [roundly a century ahead]. Thus they dropped 3,500 down to 500 mm/century – to 14% of the original. The cause remained unchanged – our CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. In no other human activity would those involved retain a belief when the most crucial item involved was found to be 86% wrong by themselves. That was a Second Grave Error.

In spite of that, the World was taken in. Politicians were able to promise to save us from the consequences, and the Media had an unending “Field Day”. It wasn’t that people necessarily believed, but they lacked the courage to risk that it might come true, and that they might have to bear the terrible consequences that had been so forcibly promised.

The New Errors The new value of “0.49 m by 2100” became widely accepted. In New Zealand, District Councils were instructed by Government Departments, like Conservation and Environment, and by Regional Councils, that they must take full account of the risk that “0.49” implied for a sea level rise by 2100. Councils had to consider that in the same way as earthquake and volcanic risk. Yet that “0.49” value doesn’t stand up to the most simple scientific scrutiny.

First, the rate is four times faster than the current sea level rise, as indicated by regional, widely-available tide gauges; second, no reason was given for quadrupling the value, and third, good science interprets “0.49” in this sense as being deliberately different from 0.48 and 0.50. Thus that effectively claims that those who determined that value know, for sure, where sea level will be a century ahead to ±5 mm. That was, and is, patently absurd

These were the Third, Fourth & Fifth Grave Errors.

Further Damning Disclosures The United Nations appointed me personally to their UNCSTD Committee which assists small countries with their ability regarding Science and Technology Development. Three or so of us would go to a central city to talk and discuss their options with delegates from regional countries. On one occasion we met in Prague, to assist countries on both sides of the “Iron Curtain”. While there, we were invited to visit the World’s only “Institute for Global Warming”. It was founded and funded incredibly by the USA and Soviet Union jointly, at the height of their “Cold War”, in an attempt to fund something “for the good of Mankind”, rather than “for armaments”. Some of its staff could have attended the 1985 Conference, and helped create the 1987 World Declaration.

I took the opportunity of asking to see copies of the documents that had been brought to  that 1985 Meeting in neutral Austria. Several attendees brought their estimates for sea level rise due to Global Warming. The values, converted to mm/century, ranged from 500 minimum to 3,500 maximum. There can be no doubt that, to ensure that their 1987 World Declaration made the greatest impact, they published the maximum value – contravening the most sacred rule of acceptable science Thou shall not publish items for monetary, political, or personal gain that are not clear un-biased un-inflated truths.

The fact that “up to” was used, might be allowed in non-scientific areas, but not in
Science. If World Media had distorted the message, the Warmers should immediately
have denied what was wrongly claimed, and ensured that the proper statement got
equal publicity. Using a maximum value for greatest effect was the Sixth (and
Worst) Grave Error.

OLD SCIENTIFIC CONCLUSIONS ON CLIMATE IGNORED

19th Century science posed a important question. Why is our Earth’s average temperature significantly higher than that calculated from the then-recent determinations of our Sun’s distance and its radiation? Knowing my interests in climate, DSIR librarians found me a publication in German that answered that puzzle early. It had Scandinavian author(s), if I remember correctly. Its answer was that the CO2 in our atmosphere acts like glass in a glasshouse. Both change the optical physical nature of the Sun’s infra-red rays [that carry the warmth to us] such that they may enter, but cannot then leave. So we are warmed by the heat trapped below our CO2; like the glasshouse below its glass.

I surmise that the Global Warmers, along with Al Gore, noted correctly that CO2 keeps us warm, but thought wrongly that more would make us warmer. The analogy with glass is important. Horticultural experiments long ago found that more (thicker) glass does not cause more warming, so more CO2 probably doesn’t either. The effect is like that of polarising spectacles, where the change takes place as light begins passing through the lenses. Thickness makes no difference. Polarisation is either 100%, or not at all. A coincidence timed the Little Ice Age’s end with the Industrial Revolution’s start. The Warmers blamed the undoubted warming on the latter – ignoring the glasshouse evidence.

THE NEW CLIMATE REGIME

NIWA The National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research (NIWA) retains New Zealand climate records. It has a history of persuading successive governments that Global Warming and Climate Change are both real. It often encouraged media headlines like “We are Getting Warmer”, when any news item suggested any higher temperature. Science progresses by new concepts and ideas being aired freely for scientific scrutiny. That has sometimes taken centuries to be completed. Although I don’t agree with some of NIWA’s views, it is proper that they should be aired for discussion, as in this booklet.

One announcement (that surely originated from NIWA) was very important to me and all citizens, and was a credit to NIWA itself. At the close of 2007, it stated that the decade just finishing was the warmest since New Zealand records began. The announcement added that, of those 10 years, 1998 was the warmest ever since records began. I was grateful to NIWA, and concluded that 2007 was no warmer than 1998, and probably cooler. I could assume therefore that warming at our 125 rate finished in 1998. In the roundest of figures, the Little Ice Age lasted for some 200 years. There would be no conflict with accepting that the following warming should similarly last for some 200 years.

As always in Science one seeks confirmation whenever possible. I have seen many items that lead to that same view of “no warming since 1998”. The best was a written debate in the Imperial Engineer of autumn 2008. [That scientific journal is produced for engineering graduates of Imperial College, London – arguably UK’s top university in engineering.] The debate was on whether Humans were to blame for current changes of climate. Prof Joanna Haigh blamed Humans, Lord Monckton blamed Mother Nature. The only point on which they both agreed was that there had been no warming since 1998. That confirmed NIWA’s statement perfectly, along with several comparable pronouncements.

My conclusion is that warming since the Little Ice Age’s end is now almost certainly finished. That was supported further by NIWA’s release at the end of 2012,concerning the Eastern Bay of Plenty. Their report was that 2012 had been drier and colder than 2011. Citizens also notice that warming seems to be over. Skiing seasons are extended, winter fires are needed earlier, and some of us travelling overseas have been asked by those from Queensland, even Hawaii, whether we in New Zealand feel colder generally – as they do. I conclude that the New Zealand climate has not been warming since 1998.

THE AFFECTS ON CITIZENS

Astronomical Cost of Major Measures to Combat a Non-Existent Threat: Politicians and the Media have listened to the proponents of Global-Warming-Climate-Change, but don’t seem to have made any critical assessment of it all. Perhaps they were bemused by the Global Warmers constantly naming themselves and associates as “Scientists”. As has been shown, those people disregarded the basic rules of true Science. Their political and media audiences innocently believed the statements – which contained grave errors.

Innocents in politics and the media were badly mis-led. They gladly supported projects to combat the non-existent threat of Global-Warming-Climate-Change. The projects were unnecessary because there was no threat; extremely costly in money time and effort; full of praise where ridicule was deserved misleading about benefits & options; and above all diversionary away from today’s real problems.

A huge international bureaucratic industry was born – with Cabinet Ministers, government departments, company sections, travel, conferences, treaties, carbon credits, and carbon trading, and very much more. The challenge was often heard that we must curb our carbon emissions or sacrifice our grandchildren’s well-being. In truth, those children were being saddled with a gigantic debt to pay for everything encompassed by the Warmers’ “carbon footprints”, including the salaries and expenses of the loudest proponents.

Perhaps the saddest part has been that the essential and innocent gas, carbon dioxide, has been demonised and criminalised. It is essential in creating plant growth using chlorophyll and photo-synthesis. It is thus essential for our very existence. Crops grow better in a CO2-enriched and warmer atmosphere, when heated by an oldfashioned vertical kerosene heater. It gives off “carbon emissions” that are valuable to us all.

Costs and Dangers of Local Measures to combat the Non-Existent Threat: Local authorities were compelled to adopt measures designed to combat the nonexistent threat. Typically, maps were drawn showing the coastline’s position now, and in the year 2100 with intermediate zone(s), assuming that sea level would rise 0.49 m in the next 100 years. Onerous restrictions have been emplaced within the zones that were thus defined.

Many regions have vast quantities of sand transported by rivers to their coast, released by the erosion of hills and mountains, continuously raised by Mother Nature. Their coastline extends seawards steadily. Citizens in such regions have long noted (with surveys and photos) that the coastline has a net seawards movement. It contrasts with
many Councils’ imposed belief in “0.49” which demands landwards movement
(“inundation”).

Councils seem unable to accept their citizens’ constant and loud protests about all this. They seem to feel that higher authorities insist that they must ignore such views. It is not just (a) the absurdity of restrictions about where houses may be erected (only inland of certain lines), etc.; or (b) the increasing costs to those building their first home. At the other end of the scale there are enforced dangers; a requirement for higher floor levels, leading to more steps, with unnecessary risks to elderly folk falling, when using them.

The fact that sea level is no longer rising is a new extra factor for councils to ignore. In the example of Ohope Beach, a Commission of enquiry, set up by Council, backed the Council’s view of landwards inundation. That rejected all citizens’ factual evidence of seawards net movement for periods ranging from 50 to 5,000 years. Council also rejected the advice, supporting the Citizens, by one who was highly qualified in engineering and science and had had long and successful experience in coastal work.

Much worse, the Council’s own appointed consultants provided an additional report based on every coastal survey for which a record was available. It showed a “retreat
of the sea” [seaward shoreline movement, or accretion] at the only three Ohope sites, of 0.30-0.94 m/yr over 130 years that was still ongoing in 2008. Clearly neither Council nor Commission had bothered to read that critical report, written by highly regarded consultants, who had been appointed for this project by the Council itself.

The widespread obsession with Global-Warming-Climate-Change, in opposition to all factual evidence, is quite incredible. It leads to unfair treatment of some citizens, and a massive bill for all, for nothing useful. When will citizens revolt effectively against such callous disregard for their observations and wishes, by those who are essentially their elected employees? When will the perpetrators examine the basis of their ideology, and realise that it’s based on unfounded unscientific beliefs, not on confirmed, widely-available investigations by real scientists who abide by the moral standards of their profession?

Con #1: LIMITS TO GROWTH

“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.” —George Orwell

If you look with your understanding, the crimes against humanity are written across the rotting visages of Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski. Like a couple of aging prostitutes, these leading architects of twentieth-century evil still sell their wares to those with an insatiable lust for the power of the crown.
