LETTER TO EDITOR: Global government
Question of the Day
I was in the room in The Hague in November 2000 when then-French President Jacques Chirac hailed the Kyoto Protocol, or “global warming” treaty, as “the first component of an authentic global governance.” Then-European Union Environment Commissioner Margot Wallstrom seconded the sentiment when she told London’s Independent that Kyoto was “not about whether scientists agree” but instead “about leveling the playing field for big businesses worldwide.”
In truth, and as Europe is proving, its rhetorical bluster notwithstanding, no free society would do to itself what the Kyoto agenda requires. Hence the increased claims that this issue “is too important to be left to democracy.” Once a group of our betters is empowered to determine our energy - and therefore economic, sovereignty and national security - concerns, this crowd get its way.
Kyoto, of course, was negotiated while Carol M. Browner led the Environmental Protection Agency - and with her participation despite unanimous Senate instruction against doing so. Her position with Socialist International reminds us precisely why a radical like Mrs. Browner has had a position created for her, so as to avoid disclosure and Senate scrutiny, to lord over actual, Senate-confirmed Cabinet officials. Taxpayer representatives should not approve funds for such a position unless and until they receive an honest accounting of the agenda and its champions’ activities.
