UN Climate Chief says Dictatorships are Best at Fighting Global Warming

So what we need is a dictatorship to save the planet? Say no more UN, we get the subtle hint you’re tossing our way. And we’re throwing out our system of elections and turning over rule to Emperor Gore and his penguin minions.
United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.
China may be the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres.
“They actually want to breathe air that they don’t have to look at,” she said. “They’re not doing this because they want to save the planet. They’re doing it because it’s in their national interest.”
Figueres added that the deep partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing any sort of legislation to fight global warming. The Chinese Communist Party, on the other hand, can push key policies and reforms all on its own. The country’s national legislature largely enforces the decisions made by the party’s Central Committee and other executive offices.
Communism was responsible for the deaths of about 94 million people in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe in the 20th Century. China alone was responsible for 65 million of those deaths under communist rule.
But you can’t make a Global Warming omelet without a little genocide and the best Warmunists are also Communists.
This is the same attitude that explains why the LA Times will no longer print letters questioning man-made Global Warming and why Green groups are encouraging other newspapers to censor climate dissent.
It worked for the Soviet Union. It’ll work for Warmunism too.
