‘Global warming’ is the Trojan Horse the regulating class (corporations)are hoping to ride to victory over the people.

The Elite class (corporations) aims to gain global bureaucratic control via a global AGW treaty..

monopoly board

After reading Tallbloke’s blog on how the BBC (media)are
“BBC journalists are being sent on courses to stop them inviting so many cranks onto programmes to air ‘marginal views’
The BBC Trust on Thursday published a progress report into the corporation’s science coverage which was criticised in 2012 for giving too much air-time to critics who oppose non-contentious issues.”
I responded to TB with my concerns

Was reading the global company news yesterday and there seems to be big push for ‘green energy/sustainability’ etc currently. (see Guardian/ sustainability section)
I don’t pretend to understand how the big global companies make money out of the AGW propaganda / carbon credit stuff.?
I read that global warming is causing the financial economy to collapse. LOL

For a reason l don’t understand global companies have their fortunes/ control mechanisms hinged on this AGW scam.
They obviously need to have the public on board to implement carbon trading or green credits?.
Global companies have taken over the western media and beyond so it is no surprise that employees are being told to tow the line or ship out!

There is no such thing as un biased reporting anymore. Companies control the lot. They feed the public what ever suits their corporate power population manipulation.
Including universities and school education and the media

Control, control..control
and if they have infiltrated the judiciary system TB . You haven’t got a hope.
They will try to make it illegal to be sceptical about AGW or anything that suits them for that matter.

If companies control everything . Where is their accountability?
There isn’t any.
Monopoly . Game set and match

If you make enough noise they may try to shut you down on wordpress or censor you..
Your aiming to challenge the ‘big wigs’ of the New world corporate government.


I did some research as to why the Global elite ( corporations) are desperately wanting to stimmy AGW debate
There are ulterior motives
Thanks to JO NOVA and


for enlightening me
JO was onto this manipulation and control in 2012!! How prophetically true JO!
EXTRACTS.. . Serious stuff here!!
But above all, they want to shut their critics up—by any means short of violence. Opinions and evidence counter to the interests of the regulating class are “illegitimate”, and are ruthlessly suppressed.

Obviously the regulating class will now respond by regulating the Internet and lobbyist’s briefcases.

The Regulating Class
Consider the array of forces in the climate argument:
UN (including the IPCC)
Western governments
NGO’s and Greenies
Totalitarian leftists
Renewables corporations
Mainstream news media
Major banks and finance houses
Independently-funded scientists
Private sector middle class
Amateurs (from amore , the Latin for love)

Why Global Warming is So Important to the Regulating Class

If human emissions of CO2 are causing a major planetary problem, then there are only two plausible solutions: wait and adapt, or regulate and reduce. Only the second solution interests the regulating class. To regulate CO2 emissions effectively and fairly you must regulate nearly all energy use, and thus most of the economy, in every nation of the world.
The regulating class promotes the dual beliefs that the “problem” of global warming is very scary and that it is caused by human emissions of CO2. The only solution they offer just happens to be complete regulation of the whole world’s economy by … the regulating class, of course.
The theory of manmade global warming is not a conspiracy. It is a confluence of vested interests in increased political regulation of the economy and rejecting market forces.
Bureaucrats, academics, government scientists, utilities, renewables manufacturers, bankers, most politicians—all these have a shared financial interest in imposing their solution to “manmade” global warming.

The Copenhagen Treaty was an Attempted Coup

Nearly all the world leaders met in Copenhagen in late 2009, expecting to sign the “Copenhagen Treaty” to limit CO2 emissions. But China and India torpedoed the negotiations, saying more research was needed to establish whether warming is manmade
The Treaty would have set up a new bureaucracy with the power to regulate CO2 emissions worldwide, able to regulate any market, over-riding national governments as required.
It could also fine and tax any signatory government.
In the hands of a judge from the regulating class, it could be interpreted to give this new global bureaucracy the power to tax every signatory nation and regulate its energy use almost completely—just look at how the US Constitution has been extended by interpretation over the years, and that’s a much clearer document. A hint in the Treaty could become the basis for a full blown mechanism to do almost anything the bureaucrats wished.
From experience with the monotonic growth of centralized power in federations of states, such as the United States or Australia, it is almost inevitable that within a few decades this new body would be parlayed up into a strong global bureaucracy regulating more than just CO2 emissions.

If something like the draft Treaty had been signed, it would have been the biggest transfer of sovereign power in recorded human history: nearly all the nations of the world would have ceded much of their sovereign power all at once. Yet the media scarcely raised an eyebrow.
All of that national sovereignty would have been ceded to an unelected group of global bureaucrats: Never in the field of human administration would so much power have been transferred by so many to so few. This was a narrowly averted global coup, an attempt to seize a great deal of power by stealth without the knowledge or explicit consent of the world’s people. It can only have been kept silent with the active support of the world’s media. But because of that silence, the coup has never been acknowledged, so the people of the world are unaware of it and further attempts could be made. Climate “science” is clearly flawed, but it is an excuse for a massive power play.

Figure 2: It is one of the oldest scams in human history: witchdoctors go to the rulers and say “the Gods are angry, there will be (more) catastrophes … we know how to appease the Gods, but it will cost you”. [Credit: CDC]

A Global Bureaucracy Would Be Bad

If a bureaucracy is global, there is nowhere to run to from high taxes, persecution, exploitation, selective enforcement of regulations, and so on
If their “solution” to global warming ushered in a global bureaucracy, people like these would be setting regulations worldwide, with no escape for anyone
The Trademark Tactics of the Regulating Class
If you oppose the regulating class, you will get called an “extremist”, a “nut”, a “conspiracy theorist”, “right wing”, and every variation of “stupid” and “ignorant”, irrespective of the merits of what you say. Say anything that mentions or might imply race and they will also call you a “racist”. Because they own the mainstream media

They hold pretend debates in their media studios with an audience of their supporters or a panel predominately of their supporters
The result: professionals and organizations appear to be all on their side. After all, they have all the government power, and all the taxpayers’ money.
Climate criminals almost took control of the whole world by deception, a grand fraud. Money has changed hands on a vast scale
All the beneficiaries are from the new regulating class, which happens to be in charge of the justice system. So no one will go to jail or even pay back their ill-gotten gains to the taxpayers. The rest of society paid for this nonsense, transferring huge quantities of money to the new class,


The push towards a global bureaucracy, using climate change as an excuse,
The real issue here is a grab for absolute power by those who already govern. They have grown tired of democracy and would like to do away with it, without ever giving the game away by actually saying so.
“global warming” is the Trojan Horse the regulating class are hoping to ride to victory over the people.

  1. Corporations have put the money in to win global dominancy through AGW global protocols.
    report 2009

    Now in 2014 ,they want the pay off..
    They still don’t have a global agreement yet !! phew!!

    But aren’t they working hard on the media and global governments to work towards a new global deal!

    Just read the Guardian newspaper on sustainability

    publication of a new report, Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States.

    The product of a bipartisan group, bringing together the former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg, three former US Treasury Secretaries (Hank Paulson, Robert Rubin and George Schultz), and the billionaire investor Tom Steyer, Risky Business shows the growing realisation that tackling climate change is both an economic imperative and an enormous opportunity. The publication of the report is yet another indication that the financial community is beginning to take climate change seriously.
    So, is there a role of investors in the climate change debate? This year alone, investors have filed more than 140 climate-related shareholder resolutions with US companies. At the same time, a coalition of investors called the Carbon Asset Risk (CAR) initiative, coordinated by Ceres and the Carbon Tracker initiative, with support from the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change, launched a coordinated effort to encourage 45 of the world’s largest fossil fuel companies to address the financial risks posed by climate change.
    But it is clear that investors could be doing more. There is a major opportunity for investors to demonstrate that they are increasingly ready for serious climate action from policymakers ahead of the UN Secretary-General’s

    Climate Summit in September 2014, which is anticipated to build momentum for a strong global climate agreement in 2015.

  2. Future of Carbon Farming Initiative unclear
    July 2014

    “Chief executive of the Carbon Market Institute, Peter Castellas, says if the carbon tax is abolished and Direction Action isn’t legislated, carbon farming investors will lose out.

    “Companies who are investing in the carbon farming initiative, or have made an investment and are generating carbon credits as a result of the abatement generated, won’t be able to sell those units either to the liable entities under the carbon pricing mechanism, or to the government through the purchasing of abatement,” Mr Castellas said.

  3. The BBC in England
    I am on the trail of who are the ‘big wigs’ that want to deceive the population about AGW in order to gain control of the globe via the next upcoming AGW sustainability / climate agreement between nations
    The three climate scientists were Myles Allen, Mike Hulme, and myself.( Richard betts)
    Richard continues
    but I know Jean-Pascal van Ypersele was there because he stayed on and we had a chat afterwards. Jonathan Lynn (IPCC Head of Communciations and Media Relations) too.
    The BBC invited me. I have no idea how they decided who to invite, but I have been interviewed by the BBC many times so it’s not surprising that I am on their radar as climate scientist and IPCC author who is prepared to talk to media audiences.
    This meeting happened before the release of IPCC AR5, and hence before the various BBC interviews with our host and Lord Lawson.

    This artcle has lots of juicy names

    more from comments section
    The Bridcut Report itself was commissioned by the BBC Governors and the BBC Executive but was an independent report by Mr Bridcut. He concluded that the Seminar included ‘some of the best scientific experts’. His report was presented to the BBC Trust, which accepted the report, agreed the principles outlined within it and approved the recommendations for the Trust.

    complaints to the BBC here

    However, if you feel there are specific instances where the BBC has not met expected standards of impartiality then you can of course raise them using the BBC complaints process. Details of the process are available online at
    I hope this is helpful.
    Yours sincerely
    John Hamer

    The only “explanation” was in Mr. Hamer’s reply which stated that;
    “The seminar to which you refer was held on 26 January 2006 under the Chatham House Rule. It was organised in partnership with the
    Cambridge Media and Environmental Programme (CMEP) in conjunction with BBC News and BBC Vision. It pre-dated the Trust and was not a BBC Trust event.”
    Essentially what is been said “it didn’t happen on our watch, so there’s nothing we can do”
    That the time of the seminar predated the BBC Trust may indeed be the case, but it does not absolve the Trust, as editorial decisions are still being informed by this seminar.
    Yours sincerely,
    Dr. D. Keiller
    I have just read the well researched and footnoted paper in PDF: “Christopher Booker: The BBC and Climate Change: A Triple Betrayal”, linked from the GWPF website. After reading this nothing surprises me about the lengths to which the BBC will go to maintain the groupthink of the organisation in this case about Climate Change. They fervently believe in the cause and will do anything to prove they are right.
    “The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate” a (so-called) “independent” group which launched itself on Sept. 24, 2013 – and which will oh-so-conveniently reveal its (expert, of course!) Report on “The New Climate Economy”:

    The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate is a major new international initiative to analyse and communicate the economic benefits and costs of acting on climate change. Chaired by former President of Mexico Felipe Calderón [and co-chaired by good ol’ Lord Nicholas Stern of Stern Report fame or infamy, depending on one’s familiarity and/or perspective -hro], the Commission comprises former heads of government and finance ministers and leaders in the fields of economics and business.

    The New Climate Economy is the Commission’s flagship project. It aims to provide independent and authoritative evidence on the relationship between actions which can strengthen economic performance and those which reduce the risk of dangerous climate change
    UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited world leaders, from government, finance, business, and civil society to the Climate Summit this 23 September to galvanize and catalyze climate action. He has asked these leaders to bring bold announcements and actions to the Summit that will reduce emissions, strengthen climate resilience, and mobilize political will for a meaningful legal agreement in 2015. The Climate Summit provides a unique opportunity for leaders to champion an ambitious vision, anchored in action that will enable a meaningful global agreement in 2015.

    The project’s approach combines such engagement with new research. We will seek to bring together and synthesise work done by a large number of research institutes, international organisations and others from around the world. The New Climate Economy work programme work is organised into three workstreams: Economic Pathways, Energy and Finance, and Drivers of Growth. You may read more on each to the right.

    The project will report in September 2014. We will present our findings directly to decision makers, and communicate them to the wider public through a variety of global and national media channels, and public meetings in a number of countries.

    UN enters US$4.5 trillion twilight zone

    However, with the World Investment Report estimating that the cost of meeting the SDGs [currently at “Zero-draft” stage Sustainable Development Goals -] in developing countries alone could be US$4.5 trillion,

    some magic may come in handy after all, to conjure the means of implementation.

    The UN’s climate chief Christiana Figueres says she will be disappointed if $10 billion is not raised by the end of 2014, as the world works towards a global emissions reduction treaty next year. “The meeting will focus on modalities, including the policies for contributions through which support can be mobilized. There is already broad participation and strong engagement with the Fund,” the GCF said in a statement. Report: UN Green CLimate Fund ‘ready’ to start work “Once capitalized, grants and concessional loans will be provided for mitigation and adaptation projects and programmes in developing countries. This process is expected to begin in early 2015.” The fund’s current lack of financial support is a major concern for the UN, which urgently needs developed countries to provide backing for the GCF to remain credible. According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), over $550 billion a year is needed to accelerate the deployment of clean energy systems. German and UK diplomats say their countries are ready to deliver funds, although specific figures remain unclear. Some world leaders are expected to make financial pledges at UN Secretary General ban Ki-moon’s climate leader’s summit in New York on September 23.

    was launched on March 28, 2009. The MEF is intended to facilitate a candid dialogue among major developed and developing economies, help generate the political leadership necessary to achieve a successful outcome at the annual UN climate negotiations and advance the exploration of concrete initiatives and joint ventures that increase the supply of clean energy while cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

    The 17 major economies participating in the MEF are: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States.


    An umbrella group of churches, which represents over half a billion Christians worldwide, has decided to pull its investments out of fossil fuel companies.

    The move by the World Council of Churches, which has 345 member churches including the Church of England but not the Catholic church, was welcomed as a “major victory” by climate campaigners who have been calling on companies and institutions such as pension funds, universities and local governments to divest from coal, oil and gas.

  13. ” China and the US have announced a series of pacts to cut greenhouse gas emissions signalling their joint commitment to tackling climate change in the run up to Paris 2015.
    Changhua Wu, Greater China Director, The Climate Group, commented: “China and US continue their collaboration to decarbonize their economies. With the new pacts signed by both sides at the just concluded bilateral strategic and economic dialogue, it is expected that the word’s two largest economies are better positioned to lead a global clean revolution.”
