Another round of fake environmental concern 


Transnational oil corporations are just one group of many that bear responsibility for the destruction of the environment, yet, they love to appear as if they are concerned about the health of the planet.

Big Oil has been behind fake environmental movements for the past half a century, financing NGOs and philanthropic organizations that present themselves as defenders of the environment but that are nothing less than corporate creations whose role is to keep people distracted while they go about destroying the future of billions of people.

While many oil companies claim to have a firm corporate social responsibility plan which supposedly includes avoiding environmental pollution, they always manage to dump chemicals into landfills and to use dangerous substances in the products they manufacture.

As the next round of environmental discussions on so-called Climate Change is set to take place in Paris this year, oil companies are already asking to be let into the conversations so they can speak directly with representatives of the United Nations and national governments.

The fake environmental movement and the UN could not have a better partner than Big Oil in their attempt to establish a legally binding universal agreement at the end of the United Nations Climate Change Conference next November in Le Bourget, France.  Both Big Oil and the UN have worked hand in hand to make people surrender their rights to property and individual liberty because “climate doomsday” is around the corner.

Unfortunately for them, more people are now aware of the hoax that anthropogenic global warming and climate change really are, which is why the UN and large international corporations are now partnering to secretely approve a resolution that would mandate the end of civilization as we know it.

As we have reported ad nauseum before, Big Oil and other industries are strong supporters of the carbon credits scheme, the system that codifies pollution worldwide, as it promotes planetary contamination in exchange for fees that only the largest companies will be able to afford.

In a recent statement sent by six major European oil companies to Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, they claim that “climate change is a critical challenge to our world”, which is why they want full access to the climate negotiations that will take place in Paris.

BP Group, BP, Eni, Royal Dutch Shell, Total Satoil are trying to get a place at the conversations in Paris later this year, where the UN intends to approve mechanisms to replace the Kyoto Protocol.

According to UN officials, the main goal of the meeting is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, which the UN and other environmental organizations claim to be the cause of global warming. The same discussion is taking place at the governmental level.

The major economies of the world are presenting their commitments to reduce emissions. And companies involved in fossil fuels are in the crosshairs of an economic model that  leads to the total decarbonisation of the world’s economy, as recognized last week by Figueres.

In this situation, the six European oil giants have sent the letter to the UN in an attempt not to be left out of the agreements. The companies say they want to “open a direct dialogue with the UN and national governments”.

The formula they propose is the same that exists now, except it would be a mandatory one if approved. They want to put a price tag on carbon emissions and the official establishment of carbon markets for buying and selling carbon allowances, a fraudulent scheme which now moves about $34 billion annually. A large chunk of this money is paid to people like Al Gore, who owns his own carbon trade company.

These six major companies believe that carbon pricing can “discourage high emissions” of CO2 and “reduce uncertainty which will help stimulate investment in low carbon technologies.” For that, the oil companies ask for “transparent, stable and ambitious regulatory frameworks” which they will undoubtedly seek to influence and control.

“We recognize that the current trend in emissions of greenhouse gases is higher than what is necessary to limit temperature increase to less than two degrees above pre-industrial levels”, stated in their letter the leaders of the six major oil companies.

“The challenge now is how to meet increased demand for energy with less CO2”, they added. “We are ready to play our part”, say these companies.

The flawed science referred to by the six oil companies in their letter is the same provided by the UN in multiple documents. This so-called science purports that desirable planetary temperature should be just above pre-industrial levels, which according to the UN can only be reached by completely decarbonizing human activity. In truth, despite the continuous increase in CO2 emissions for the past decade or so, there has been no measurable increase in global temperatures.

Even mainstream media have been obligated to report on the fact that data that shows a relation between increases in CO2 emissions and global warming have been manipulated to fit the politics of global warming and climate change so that European and American corporations, through their UN partners, have an excuse to push for limits to development in third world nations.
