EXPOSED: Obama and the UN’s Secret Plan to Shred the US ConstitutionIf the words “climate justice tribunal” sound an alarm in your head, congratulations, you’re a thinking human. You’re also not a member of the Obama administration.The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which the administration supports, was recently released to the public. Among other things, the framework calls for a “climate justice tribunal” — essentially a supranational court to be administered by the United Nations.According to WND, the UNFCCC is an attempt to reach an agreement like the Kyoto Protocol in the late 1990s. That global warming treaty, while championed by the Clinton administration and Vice President Al Gore, was shot down in the Senate.However, this time the administration is saying that they don’t need Senate approval, in spite of the Senate’s constitutional role in approving treaties, since the UNFCCC isn’t a treaty. (Where have I heard this before?)Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Chris Horner says that we should be extremely worried when words like “climate justice” are kicked around.
“What is climate justice? This is troubling for several reasons,” Horner said.“The Senate has an advisory and a confirmation role in international agreements,” he added. “Whatever comes out of these Kyoto II talks, the president said, ‘It’s not a treaty, so I don’t need to go through the Senate.’“But now we see this draft that has a court. That’s a problem.”Horner also pointed out that recent global warming talks have revealed that the agenda is less about climate change and more about a transfer of wealth, specifically away from the United States.“It was transparently all about us when (Kyoto) was drafted in the ’90s,” Horner said.“When Asia happened and all this development occurred, thank goodness, and their emissions began skyrocketing while ours did not, it remained about us.“Now that’s odd if it really was about greenhouse gas emissions.”He added that such a tribunal “will not be stacked with the Antonin Scalias of the world.”“It will be stacked with people who style themselves as climate jurists seeking climate justice, which as we’ve seen in recent years, means pretty much any grievance there is, climate is an excuse to force a wealth transfer to remedy it.”The idea that Obama could sign us on to such a treaty — signaling a loss of national autonomy unheard of in the history of this country — is a prospect that should frighten every American.However, in spite of what the president thinks, we do still have a little thing called checks and balances. Let’s hope that our system can withstand the onslaught being perpetrated on it by the Obama administration.
