The Kerry Plan: Mandatory Global Warming Plan for US in 2015

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Fresh from his successes in Syria, Iran and Sudan, John Kerry goes to bed every night in his yacht with a bigger dream in mind. A dream of destroying the American economy and impoverishing the country.

His goal is to become the lead broker of a global climate treaty in 2015 that will commit the United States and other nations to historic reductions in fossil fuel pollution.

Shortly after Mr. Kerry was sworn in last February, he issued a directive that all meetings between senior American diplomats and top foreign officials include a discussion of climate change. He put top climate policy specialists on his State Department personal staff. And he is pursuing smaller climate deals in forums like the Group of 20, the countries that make up the world’s largest economies.

Mr. Obama has given Mr. Kerry’s efforts some help. In September, the Environmental Protection Agency began issuing regulations forcing cuts in carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants, the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.

The rules, which can be enacted without Congress, have effectively frozen construction of new coal-fired plants and could eventually shutter existing ones. Republicans criticize the rules as a “war on coal,” but abroad they are viewed as a sign that the United States is now serious about acting on global warming.

What would this 2015 treaty involve? It would be a mandatory version of Kyoto dominated by the European Union and with the endgame of destroying productive economies the way that so many European economies have been destroyed by the Warmists.

The goal of 2015 will be to tie together all the past agreements into one big mandatory plan. United Nations bureaucrats will end up in control of every detail of life in the United States.

This is one more reason why it’s critical to secure Senate seats in 2014. The risk of a monstrosity like this getting through the Senate will be the effect of Obama’s two terms times twenty.

    Funny this comes out during one of the coldest winters since records were kept….Sub zero temps in the Midwest for weeks…..More snow this winter than in the past fifty years in many places…record lows…schools and roads closed…..I guess it’s global warming…heh heh….

    • Daniel Greenfield

      The real coldest place is the space between Kerry’s brain cells

        I note that you didn’t say “functional brain cells”.

      Not Global Warming. Call it Catastrophic Anthropomorphic Global Climate Change, Yaaagh! We’re All Going to Die! It’s Bush’s Fault! But did you know that some people actually believe that there’s this great big ball of burning gas about 93 million miles away and it has cycles of greater or lesser output…. oh, never mind. Why would anyone believe that fantasy when the first is “settled science”?

      • BS77

        The two main factors in global temperature change are: the variation in the mean solar output…i.e., hotter, cooler…the other is volcanic eruptions, such as the Mt. Pinotubo eruption, which put more gas, dust, smoke and elements like sulfur, iron, carbon into the atmosphere than all the planes trains and automobiles in history. We had ice sheets two miles thick sitting on top of what is now Chicago…and it all melted away ….and there was not one suv, or coal fired plant, not one little oil refinery or anything. Global warming hysteria is a Luddite creation.

        • Lightbringer

          Indeed it is a Luddite creation. And boy, do I ever remember when Mt. Pinotubo blew its stack — two very, very cold, snowy winters in a row! But then, as you say, things got back to normal.

      Kerry and Obama don’t care about “scientific truth.” It’s all about destroying traditional industries in the US and transferring money to themselves and their cronies. It’s about robbing us of our life savings and our children of job opportunities and future.

    “Unreliable German Solar and Wind Forcing New Coal Boom”

    http://pjmedia.com/blog/unreliable-german-solar-and-wind-forcing-new-coal-boom/

    The Green Energy revolution is destroying equipment with dirty power(electricity) and worse. It is destroying the poor. The rich will generate their own power and get power conditioning equipment to protect their machinery, appliances and computers.

    It is not just the cost of power in financial terms. There is a cost to dirty power that you pay later on in financial terms as well.

    You have a little under voltage, a little brown out and it is not too expensive if you are replacing a incandescent light bulb. When it shortens your computer’s life from 4 years to 3 years, the people lower down on the economic ladder a
    F CKED and the LEFT are the ones F CKING them.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      And we’re not even really experiencing it the way that the UK, Australia and Germany are.

      • Gus

        In Australia, they voted enviro-freaks out of office and killed all enviro-red-tape regulations. There’s no more carbon tax and no more carbon trading over there and the government withdrew the country from the Kyoto farce for good.

          China will want any greenhouse gas they produced prorated by their exports.

          Which means that if 1/2 their industrial production gets exported to the U.S. they want that added to the U.S.’s total.

          Did John Kerry take that into account?

          If we go with China’s formula will the U.S. meet its’ (the Left’s) target?

      what is “clean power” and “dirty power”?

      http://www.electriciantalk.com/f2/what-clean-power-dirty-power-16131/

      “What Causes “Dirty” Power?

      Whether it’s called a surge, a sag, a spike, a transient, a fluctuation, an interruption, or noise, “dirty power” is some type of abnormality in the electricity that runs your facility”

      http://www.emersonnetworkpower.com/en-US/Brands/SurgeProtection/Pages/WhatCausesDirtyPower.aspx

      “The Czech Republic and Poland have already complained. Pavel Solc, Czech deputy minister of industry and trade, said:

      Germany is aware of the problem, but there is not enough political will to solve the problem because it’s very costly. So we’re forced to make one-sided defensive steps to prevent accidents and destruction.”

      This Old House is PBS approved. the show got its’ start there. Will the Left launch a Jihad against This Old House Now?

      Read the excerpt below. Surges are not the only problem. Undercurrent is also a problem as well as other power conditioning problems. Computers are engineered to have graceful degradation, but they can only take so many hits from power fluctuations before dying. Your computer might be limping along currently but you do not know because of the it has some duplication of function.

      “Surge Protection

      Don’t count on power strips to safeguard your home and fragile electronics”

      “Not long ago, electrical contractor Allen Gallant was about halfway through the job of completely rewiring a 3,200-square-foot house in Acton, Massachusetts, when the owners decided to save some money and not install whole-house protection against power surges. Sure enough, soon after the house was finished, Gallant got a phone call from the distressed owners: Lightning had struck a utility pole near their house, sending a tidal wave of voltage through the wires, past the main breaker panel, and into the house. “It burned out the motherboard in the Sub-Zero refrigerator, fried the temperature controls in the double-wall oven, killed six dimmers, two computers, and every GFCI plug in the house,” Gallant says. “It was an $11,000 loss.”

    Not to worry. According to some scientists, its just a matter of time before they find another planet or two that supports life. After this planet is inhabitable for humans because the eco-terrorists have secured a total ban on inhaling and exhaling, this is welcome news.

    • G

      Smart people will emigrate to those other planets while the eco-terrorists frolic like Eldar in their pristine forests until they completely ruin Earth. They will want to emigrate to the new planets to enlighten us unwashed and implement their grand design all over again.

    For 90% of the last 20 million years were glacial periods where permanent ice sheets extended to 40 degrees latitude. The end of the present interglacial period is overdue. AGW may help but it is likely too little too late.

    Conservatives should start demanding we get out of the UN once and for all. This way the Kerry’s of the world will have to waste their energies on starting another one than consolidating UN power.

    Does anyone need further convincing that Kerry and his puppet master, Obama, and everyone in his administration, hate this country and are out to destroy it?

  • Gus

    So much more reason to vote for GOP in the 2014 election.

    The Repubs had a chance to halt the EPA madness during the past budget negotiation but of course they punted. Up with the Tea Party down with the establishment Repubs.
