“Everybody Wants To Rule The World” was a 1985 song by Tears For Fears. Now in 2015, a number of parties are doing their best to that end – ISIS in the Middle East, Russia chewing up the Ukraine, China in the East and South China Seas and the UN Climate Change Commission. A draft document out of Geneva gives details of the UN plan to rule the world.
David then quotes some from the Negotiating Text from the UNFCC meeting in Geneva earlier this month. Here is one of his quotes:
All Parties to strive to achieve low greenhouse gas climate-resilient economies and societies, on the basis of equity and in accordance with their historical responsibilities, common but differentiated responsibilities / evolving common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in order to achieve sustainable development, poverty eradication and prosperity for the benefit of present and future generations of humankind, taking fully into account the historical responsibility of developed country Parties.
Does David Archibald object to poverty eradication? Does he object to prosperity for the benefit of present and future generations of humankind? Indeed he does. David writes:
Animal Farm was supposed to be a cautionary tale about communism. The UN has taken “All animals are created equal but some are more equal than others.” and turned into “All countries are common but some are more differentiated than others.”
Heaven forbid that poverty should be eradicated or that poorer nations might have their capabilities taken into account. How could any red-blooded climate science denier tolerate such a thing. Everyone knows that you can only get rich if you exploit the poor. If you don't exploit the poor, how can you expect to make money?
David is particularly irate at something under "Option 5" of the document, which refers to per capita emissions since 1750 and states:
Each Party to the Convention whose per capita greenhouse gas emissions exceed the global average per capita greenhouse gas emissions shall be proposed to be inscribed in Annex I to the Convention, and the remaining Parties shall not be proposed to be inscribed in Annex I to the Convention.(By the way, here is how countries are allocated between Annex I, Annex II and non-Annex I. Annex I are industrialised countries and non-Annex I are mostly developing countries.)
David concludes that:
So that is why the global warming scare is so hard to kill. The end game is world domination.
David doesn't say who exactly is going to dominate the world, except he mentioned the UN above. So maybe he thinks it's all 193 member states of the UN that are going to dominate the world. Or maybe he's leaving it up to conspiracy theorists to fill in the blanks with whatever bogeyman is their favourite. Let's see who it might be:
- Lizard men
- The one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater
- Aliens from (insert home planet here)
- The "them" who operate HAARP
- The "them" who are poisoning us with chemtrails
- All 193 member states of the United Nations
- None of the 193 member states of the United Nations
- Only parties that are inscribed in Annex I to the Convention.
- All parties that are not inscribed in Annex I to the Convention.
From the WUWT comments
So far no-one in the comments has let on just who is going to dominate the world in the future. It's also apparent that deniers can only reject so many paranoid conspiracy theories. One (or maybe one a week) seems to be the limit. After that they embrace all others.
Christopher Paino doesn't buy into David's paranoia:

hunter rejected Viv Forbes paranoia but embraces David Archibald's

So quoting the actual treaty is too crazy for you. I would suggest that being highly fact resistant is evidence of tinfoil abuse.
MCourtney used up his quota of conspiracy theories to reject. (I think his quota is one). Like hunter, he also rejected Viv Forbes' notions but embraces the World Domination conspiracy.

This is not the crazy of a few days ago.
This is looking at the costs of the new treaty being discussed. A real treaty quoted accurately and not picking to disbelieve the bits that don’t fit the paranoia. It’s not the crazy.
OK, it’s about trying to get rich rather than trying to rule the world but money does make the world go round. But that’s just the writer’s style.
That’s the problem with posting one mad story. All other stories are assumed to be delusions too.

Dr. Archibald. Thank you for the very fine and concise post. With regard to your statement
“So that is why the global warming scare is so hard to kill. The end game is world domination. With such a big prize – the biggest possible, facts aren’t even inconvenient. They are not part of the process.”
We here at WUWT already knew that, but your posting certainly brings it into sharp focus.
Well, we at HotWhopper already knew that :)
