Doha Didn't Do So Well But the Elites Will Surely Strike Again
Kyoto extended in UN climate agreement ... A UN conference has passed a package of agreements extending the life of the Kyoto Protocol, as Australia and 36 other industrialised countries signed up for binding emission cuts by 2020. Agreement on the modalities of a Kyoto 'second commitment period,' which seeks to rein in climate change pending a new global pact due to enter into force in 2020, concluded 12 days of tough haggling in Qatar. After several days of deadlocked talks, conference chairman Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiyah finally rushed through the package of deals which he termed the Doha Climate Gateway, riding roughshod over country objections as he swung the gavel in quick succession proclaiming: 'It is so decided.' Observers said Russia had been trying to halt the extension of Kyoto, whose first leg expires on December 31. Moscow objected to the passing of the deal, and noted that it retained the right to appeal the president's action. – Sky News
Dominant Social Theme: Climate change will go on ... and also the negotiations it engenders.
Free-Market Analysis: The climate change meetings that took place recently at Doha proved difficult once again for the power elite – the one that wants to run the world and is using enforced scarcity to help it do so. But the very difficulty of negotiating climate change agreements regarding Kyoto presents to us another "big idea."
What's the big idea? Well ... let's start, briefly, at the beginning.
One of the main weapons of the power elite is climate change. People are supposed to be panicked by the idea of global warming and therefore be willing to give up power and wealth to globalist institutions.
The dominant social theme when it comes to climate change is that the Earth is becoming a more arid and difficult place and that only concerted international action can save us. The subdominant theme is that it doesn't much matter what is happening with the weather. SOMETHING is happening and that something demands immediate action.
The West – so-called developed countries – are to give up power and wealth in aggregate to developing ones. This is actually a wealth transfer that is apparently getting the world ready for global government. Only when rich and poor countries have "evened out" will it be possible to build a true global economy.
But in the Internet Era, the whole climate change business has proven very hard to proselytize. It keeps getting undone and exposed. This latest round of "talks" aimed at addressing the "crisis" is a good example. Here's more from the article excerpted above:
The talks, scheduled to have closed on Friday, ran a whole day into extra time, paralysed as rich and poor countries faced off on issues including finance and compensation for climate damage.
An extension of Kyoto was finally approved with the 27-member European Union, Australia, Switzerland and eight other industrialised countries signing up for binding emission cuts by 2020.
They represent about 15 per cent of global emissions.
The protocol locks in only developed states, excluding major developing polluters such as China and India, as well as the United States which refuses to ratify it.
One of the key disputes in Doha was 'hot air,' the name given to greenhouse gas emission quotas that countries were given under the first leg of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol and did not use - some 13 billion tonnes in total.
The package also includes agreement to scale up funding to help poor countries deal with global warming and convert to planet-friendlier energy sources.
OK ... The talks ran long and were extremely contentious. Finally, the chairman closed out the negotiations on his own, as follows, according to Wired.com:
The talks were nearly derailed at the last minute by a coalition of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, who argued that they should be allowed extra refit for emissions cuts made when their industries collapsed. But the chairman lost patience, restarted the meeting, and moved through the agenda so fast that Russia had no chance to object.
According to the Wired article, the talks did accomplish something substantive in that "in a historic shift in principle, the summit established that developed nations should compensate developing countries for the effects of climate change."
The agreement extends Kyoto to 2020 but only for a few developed countries. And a new agreement will have to be negotiated before Kyoto lapses.
So we have new understandings but no real consensus. And the heavy lifting has been put off once again. Without the chairman's impetuosity, the agreement might have unraveled entirely.
The Internet Reformation militates against hoaxes like "global warming." And yet without such scarcity memes, the power elite is bereft of many of the tools it needs to create a consensus for global governance.
This leads us to believe that the elites will either take a step back or do something more drastic to regain momentum. We used to believe the former, but having observed firsthand the fierceness with which those who propound these themes are fighting back, we begin to believe the latter.
Bear in mind that no matter the phony pretext – false flag – that is presented, it won't be real. Rather, it will be used to justify further "emergency" action. This is a phenomenon that we have dubbed "directed history" and we fully expect to see more of it as those who want to run the world continue to generate phony crises demanding "resolution."
Conclusion: This is the "big idea" that we referred to at the beginning of the article. Like a plot twist in a movie, it really won't amount to much but it will be enough to motivate further action. It is emotion that is being appealed to here not logic. And reality has nothing to do with it ...

Yes,sadly true we have a prime minister that spends money like a 'drunken sailor'i can't for the life of me understand why nations like China,India,Africa ad nauseam can get away without paying a cent,while my country(Australia)has to falk out dollars hand over fist to these nations who contribute more so called 'green-house'gasses than we do!and please save the 'per capita'crap that's continually rammed down our throats by our Fabian prime minister.

This crowd doesn't appear to be to concerned with other viewpoints. When a climate change critic tried to express his views he was physically escorted out to a cacophony of boos.

Joy Australia now has to fork out another $3 billion to 3rd and 2nd world countries, our taxes hard at work building the final institutions before the inevitable fall.

They never say how global warming will be solved. Once they twist the data to get their meme, the super computers are shut off apparently. So developed countries must suffer so others can develop.
What is to be developed?
Lets not kid ourselves. Mineral and oil extraction. Building infrastucture (ports, bridges, roads, rail) to get the machinery into remote regions is cost prohibitive unless you can get someone else to pay for it.
Do I know this for sure? No, but I'd lay a heavy wager on it if there was a way to check. I believe it is more socializing the cost to boost private profit. There is nothing wrong with profit, but socializing cost should not be tolerated.
