Schwarzenegger: Time for a New Breed of Action Heroes … The former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announces today that he will serve as Honorary Chair for the Sustainia Award alongside EU Commissioner Connie Hedeggard, IPPC Chairman Dr. Rajenda K. Pachauri and former Prime Minister of Norway Gro Harlem Brundtland. The Award is part of a new initiative to develop the world's first realistic model of a sustainable world in 2020 – and identify the companies and persons who can make it real. As long as we can't see or feel what a sustainable society is, we will never succeed in convincing decision makers to make the changes necessary. The sustainable private and public solutions must be recognized and scaled up – and we need a tangible idea of how it will improve quality of life for people and communities around the world. – UN Global Compact
Dominant Social Theme: With the Governator on our side, we can build a sustainable planet.
Free-Market Analysis: Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to rule the world. First, he was the world's best bodybuilder and then the biggest movie star. After that he was the governator of the Biggest Show on Earth (California) and now he has signed on to be the award presenter for the startlingly ominous Sustainia project.
Schwarzenegger comes across as a caricature, like a cartoon character, a blow-up mannequin with a silly accent. For these reasons, he seems non-threatening. Also, he has been very successful, and people forgive success.
But Schwarzenegger's deals were apparently cut with the power elite long ago. It wasn't so well understood at the time, but Schwarzenegger's 1990s movies presaged much of the growing police state in America and throughout the West. Coincidence?
This move star was featured in a number of films about the near future that contained many of the "security" techniques now coming on line. Just take a look at any of his tremendously successful Terminator movies or movies such as "Total Recall," made in 1990.
This is one reason that those who run Hollywood are so focused on copyright law. Hollywood movies are distributed around the world. Rich or poor, and no matter the language, people watch the same fare and are conditioned to look at the world the same way.
The power elite uses only the biggest stage for its various dominant social themes – the fear-based promotions that seek to move the world's populations toward global government.
These promotions feature food, water and energy. By demonizing carbon dioxide, for instance, the power elite is trying to make people suspicious of one of the two fundamental gases necessary for life. They are nothing if not ambitious and bold.
The UN is emerging once more as a main engine as the power elite makes its final push toward world government. This is one reason why we don't see any schism in the power elite itself, as many maintain. The goals seem harmonious at the topmost level.
Yet when one reads about this horrible project, one might be struck by the pains that UN leaders are taking to distance themselves from it. This is part of the UN's larger psyops war to convince people that the fascist mentality animating the current UN leadership is shared by NGOs, businesses big and small, political leaders and, of course, "the children." The UN speaks for all of us, in other words.
It's part of our lives now, as natural as breathing. We simply accept that the leaders of 100 or 200 nations casually get together in various posh getaways to sign nonsensical agreements supporting things like a "zero-carbon earth."
Flush from its control of monopoly-fiat central banking around the world, the topmost elite behind these manipulations is seeking to build world government as fast as possible. What's the rush? Well … we tend to believe that the Internet itself, and what we call the Internet Reformation, has forced the hand of these dynastic families.
As the Internet Reformation itself gathers force and informs people of the Way the World Really Works, the elites are losing their best tool – the memes they are able to establish through control of the world's media.
As these memes founder and fail, the elites turn to war and Draconian legislation to force people to conform to their vision of a single, worldwide "community." The UN has re-emerged as the lead instrument for this repression after a period of apparent lassitude.
The UN and its top people are everywhere these days, working in "concert" with various governments, NGOs and "celebrities." This Sustainia gambit is just one of the same, and has all the patterns of an elite meme.
It's like the unveiling of a new movie (maybe no coincidence). And it stars the person who was once the world's biggest Hollywood star and features a cast of characters that include the world's top corporations and non-profits, and of course, the world's "leading thinkers."
A UN press release tells us about this new, bold initiative. (And what a contemptuous name it is, like the very first thing someone scribbled down on a napkin during a brainstorming session on how to further confuse the "sheeple.") Not surprisingly, the outfit issuing a press release on the new award's presentation is the "UN Global Compact."
The United Nations Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
From the press release, we learn that the former "Governator" believes the era of talk is over and that it is time for action. "The companies, institutions and persons who represent green solutions are the new breed of action heroes whose efforts we should celebrate and encourage," he is quoted as saying.
Just as it is in the movies, Schwarzenegger has to share credit with others that get equivalent billing in this new production. "He is joined by three of the world's most prominent sustainability leaders," we are told.
First is European Commissioner for Climate Action Connie Hedegaard, Chairman of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); second is Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, Former Prime Minister of Norway and Former Director General of WHO; and third is Gro Harlem Brundtland, who founded the global sustainability agenda 20 years ago at the first Rio conference in 1992 on sustainable development.
Schwarzenegger is gracious about being associated with these three. "Being a champion in body building, in movies or in politics, I learned that the key to success is people power – motivating and inspiring everyone to be a part of the solution, not just part of the problem."
And he adds, "The Sustainia initiative and the awards that recognize innovative people and technologies can help our campaign to make communities healthier, wealthier, and more sustainable for generations to come."
So what IS Sustainia? The Sustainia web page tells us that "Sustainia is a virtual model of the world we could create if we implemented ready and available solutions to our existing cities, homes, energy systems and transportation. Developers have started the process of building Sustainia. In the coming months, everyone with an Internet access can visit, inhabit and help build the new world on a virtual construction site."
From the website, we learn that "The vision of Sustainia is presented in the book 'Guide to Sustainia,' which was developed by Scandinavian think tank Monday Morning in a collaborative effort with 20 global companies (including Microsoft, GE, DNV, Philips Lighting, DONG Energy, Tetra Pak, Cisco and others) and experts." Here's the "problem" as enunciated by Sustainia in this "Guidebook" …
Getting to Sustainia won't happen overnight … Arriving safely requires many choices and actions. Most importantly: We cannot make it there by ourselves. We have to go together, all of us.
The warming planet and depletion of natural capital are global problems in a globalized world. The response has to be coordinated, collaborative, and carefully planned. Environmental problems are interconnected through a well-balanced and complex global system. If we alter one part, we risk impacting other parts – or tipping the balance altogether.
Furthermore, the effects follow specific time-bound trajectories. Global emissions of CO2 must be reduced by at least 50-85% in 2050. If we don't initiate the sustainable trajectory today, so that emissions peak in 2020, we will not be able to halt global warming below dangerous levels.
The link to nature was, unfortunately, not generally reflected in the "old" economic model. The price of a product was based on the cost of human resources and materials, not the cost of pollution of our common natural good. In 2020, this has started to change, and that is one of the most important pathways to create a sustainable economy.
The notion that we do not have the tools to confront the environmental crisis changed in the 2000s. Numerous projections and forecasts told us we had most of the needed technologies, policies, and information. While there is no "silver bullet" – a single technology or political agreement that will solve the problem – an array of complementary measures do exist.
We know what to do. Fixing the problem comes down to the human factors.
But what if there is no "problem" to begin with? If there is global warming – and more and more evidence shows us there is NOT – then it is likely a condition beyond human control and one that, in any case, may be positive for the Earth's flora and fauna in the long term.
One can surely make a case that a hot Earth is more sympathetic to life than a cold one. And the Earth has obviously been warmer in the past than at present.
On the other hand, the powers-that-be have taken to calling this meme-of-memes "climate change." So maybe they are hedging their bets. Maybe the Earth is starting to COOL.
Weather always changes. By turning changeable weather patterns into a kind of crisis and associating this crisis directly with "every breath" people take, the elites have attempted to create an ongoing state of emergency that can be used to justify even the most Draconian laws and repression. It is a kind of key they hope will unlock the New World Order.
How does Schwarzenegger fit into this?
"The key elements in the collaboration between Sustainia and Arnold Schwarzenegger's … initiative consist of the following:
1. To Identify, Design, Implement, Measure, Report and Verify the actions undertaken by regions and their positive impacts for a sustainable world.
2. On an annual basis, to identify the most successful sustainable solutions and award the solution with the most potential to be implemented and disseminated.
3. The establishment of a new powerful global forum for ambitious action and commitment to sustainable development that will provide a new innovative and creative annual platform for gathering global leaders.
Sustainia will be presented to world leaders in June this year, at the Rio+20 Summit in Brazil, alongside an inspiration catalogue – "Sustainia100" – containing 100 concrete solutions and technologies that will help make "Sustainia" real.
Naked apes are uniquely susceptible to shame and guilt, and the global warming campaign is cleverly suited to play off both emotions. But there is a larger game afoot.
The idea, in our view, is to build a world government that will control every part of the actions and resource utilization of billions of people. It will literally be, in an apt phrase, a "prison planet."
Eventually, over time, much of this population will be reduced, violently or otherwise, and the rest shall be susceptible to genetic manipulation. See the so-called Georgia Guidestones for a chilling prophecy in this regard.
This is the future that Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided to assist in his need for attention, ego gratification and additional wealth.
