Ms. Henny-Penny undergoes a rude awakening.
(Page 2 of 2)
Me: The Kyoto Protocol was rejected by Congress several years ago. Will this conference try to resurrect it?
H-P: Yes, but under the guise of a new “sustainability” treaty which, if it became law, could result in ruinous cap-and-trade legislation here.
If China and India refuse to sign on to all this, the conference won’t succeed. That won’t stop the ecosocialists from trying again and again. In fact, just the media focus on the conference alone would embolden Obama’s EPA to push forward with the drastic regulations it has proposed on carbon dioxide.
Me: Will the pressure grow for the U.S. to cave in these various anti-industrial pacts?
H-P: You can bet the ranch on it. Even though a big treaty did not come out of Copenhagen in 2009, the U.S. signed on to an agreement that pays $30 billion annually to developing countries.
That stipend is set to go up to $100 billon annually by 2020. The stated goal for the Durban conference is to get the U.S. to agree to $400 billion a year!
Bear in mind that the underlying goal of this conference and the earlier ones is global redistribution of wealth and concentration of power in the hands of the UN and other international bodies.
Me: What can individual Americans do about this?
H-P: Support organizations opposed to the ecosocialist agenda. Also, write to President Obama, your members of Congress, pointing out these initiatives would have serious negative consequences on our economy. As for me, I’m taking vacation time to go to Durban to picket the conference.
Peter Hannaford first met Henny-Penny several years ago when she announced her theory that the sky is falling.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
