Transcript of a speech given by Lord Christopher Monckton, former policy advisor to Margaret Thatcher, in which a dire warning is given to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty.
At Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it — because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regimes around the world like the European Union will rubber-stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it. I have read that treaty, and what it says is this: That a world government is going to be created.
The word government actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from countries of the west to third world countries in satisfaction of what is called coyly a climate debt, because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t and we’ve been screwing up the climate. We haven’t been screwing up the climate, but that’s the line. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement. How many of you think that the word election, or democracy, or vote, or ballot occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists piled out of the Berlin wall and into the environmental movement and took over Green Peace so that my friends who founded it, left within a year because they’d captured it. Now the apotheosis is at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Noble Peace Laureate; of course he’ll sign it.
The trouble is this. If that treaty is signed, your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution, and you can’t resile from that treaty unless you get the agreement of all the other states participating, because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out.
