On a recent flight, I was handed a bright, red and white napkin with cute polar bears on both sides with the logo, “Together We Can Help Protect Their Home.” The Coca Cola famous trademark was augmented by the words, “Arctic Home.”
I decided to check their Arctic Home website. It was exquisitely done, with soothing, sleep-inducing sounds of ocean waves and beautiful shots of polar bears in their Arctic habitat. The site explained, “Our goal, in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund, is to raise awareness and funds to help create a safe haven for polar bears on Arctic refuge. As a symbol of our commitment, for the first time ever, we are turning our red Coca Cola can white. Please join us by making a donation so the polar bear always has a place to call home.”
Coca Cola will give up to $1 million in total donations made with a product code through March 15, 2012. The dollar count so far was $25,419. It seemed like a worthy cause. However, I was not aware that the polar bears needed a safe haven on Arctic refuge, their home turf. I do not know of many people currently or in the past that have made too many tracks on Arctic refuge, deliberately trying to disrupt their home.
I do know that Al Gore made a Power Point presentation to the Nobel Prize committee, claiming that the polar bear habitat is threatened by global warming. Since bears cannot find ice floes to rest on, as ice areas are rapidly melting, polar bears were drowning. The statement was proven later to be utterly false. It is sad that the truly deserving candidate, Irena Sendler, who saved hundreds of Jewish children from the Holocaust, lost her Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore.
Coca Cola had another related link, Live Positively.com. Under many headings such as Planet, Climate Protection, Sustainability, Water Conservation, Community Partnerships, Global Water Challenge, Sustainable Agriculture, Sustainable Packaging, Water Stewardship, Water Footprint Assessment, I was struck by the similarity of its goals and buzzwords to the goals of UN Agenda 21.
I found out that a way had been devised to measure water footprint. I was familiar with the hoax of measuring carbon footprint, a way to carbon tax offending corporations and enrich the coffers of governments, particularly the United Nations. The Cap and Trade legislation that failed in Congress would have made many people billionaires, including Al Gore.
The Water Stewardship and Replenish Report of January 2011 documents how the Nature Conservancy and Global Environment and Technology Foundation developed the methodologies in calculating liters of water replenished. (Community Water Partnership Reports)
Community Watershed Partnership is “working to provide safe water to primary schools in Western Kenya” and other countries.
The World Wildlife Fund, Global Water Challenge, United Nations Development Programme, the Nature Conservancy, CARE, Ocean Conservancy, the CEO Water Mandate, are NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) trying to influence our public policy on water use and reuse without input from Congress or American voters.
Every time global organizations and companies use global governance to tell us how to live, how to be better stewards of the environment, we are losing our freedom to govern ourselves. Global governance is “The framework of rules, institutions, and practices that set limits on behavior of individuals, organizations, and companies.” (Henry Lamb)
Global governance and our Constitution are at odds and they cannot co-exist
Global governance and our Constitution are at odds and they cannot co-exist. Under global governance, the governed derive their freedom from the consent of the government. Our “we the people” freedom under the U.S. Constitution is a gift from our Creator.
As the Constitution declares, “All legislative power herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” “No legislative power is supposed to go anywhere except to the people who you, the citizens of America, elect.” (Lord Monckton)
“Together with our bottling partners, we collaborate with the World Wildlife Fund, United Nations Development Programme, Global Water Challenge, CARE, Ocean Conservancy and others to protect watersheds and support initiatives that bring clean water and sanitation to underserved areas. Since 2005, we have developed Community Water Partnerships, with more than 320 projects in 86 countries
We also are involved with the Water Footprint Network to develop standards and guidelines for water footprint accounting and to define the concept of water neutrality. In 2010, we collaborated with The Nature Conservancy to look at water footprint s as a water resource management tool in a report titled Product Water Footprint Assessments. This work complements our engagement with the CEO Water Mandate, a joint initiative of the United Nations Global Compact and the government of Sweden. The CEO Water Mandate seeks to build an international movement of committed companies working to develop strategies and solutions to help address the water challenges facing the world today.”(Coca Cola website)
Since the Coca Cola site describes what steps they have taken to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce greenhouse gasses emissions, it is apparent that the myth of global warming, now renamed climate change has not died, on the contrary, it has gained traction.
United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon called on world leaders this week at a conference in Bangladesh to collaborate on establishing a multi-billion dollar fund to combat global warming. The whole world knows that global warming is a left wing manufactured hoax. Nobody has any money to give third world nations because all developed nations are broke. Nevertheless, he wants to establish a $100 billion dollar green fund each year dedicated to help countries most affected by global warming, taming the damage caused by climate change. There are no rising sea levels and there is no increased salinity of ocean water as he claims. In his opinion, the global economic crisis should not hinder the effort to fund $100 billion each year.
Nobody disputes the fact that climate does change, and that the earth does go through periods of intense natural disasters, but it has not been proven scientifically that human behavior and activity is causing them. Scientists have demonstrated the existence of intense solar flares activity and actual global cooling, when temperatures were compared over decades.
People do care about nature, a clean environment, recycling natural resources, including water, and preserving as many of the earth’s species as possible. However, Paul Watson, the co-founder of Greenpeace has said, ”The data does not matter, it does not matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.” Indeed, people believe what they are told, if repeated enough, no matter what the accurate scientific data bears.
“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis,” said David Rockefeller, the Club of Rome executive member. Judi Bari, principal organizer of Earth First provides that major crisis, the supposed human destruction of the environment.“If we do not overthrow capitalism, we do not have a chance of saving the world ecologically. I think it is possible to have an ecologically sound society under socialism. I don’t think it is possible under capitalism.” Having lived under communism for twenty years, I have experienced firsthand the severe air, water, and soil pollution that we experienced on a daily basis. I have also seen the dangerous smog in China during the Olympic Games.
As Lord Monckton aptly described in a recent interview for the Daily Caller, we must revisit the global warming debacle. “The environmental agenda of the hard left, socialist, fascist, communist agenda has virtually nothing to do with the environment.”
The global warming debacle
The global warming debacle “lacks academic rigor, intellectual honesty, and the scientific method once the hallmark of the West.” We are indebted to the unknown person at the University at East Anglia who released ten years of emails between faux scientists. The incorrect data drove the debate in the direction of indoctrinating the planet into the Green Monster, UN Agenda 21 plan. A massive campaign was launched to de-develop the United States.
In spite of defeating Cap and Trade, the Climate-gate scandal, cheating and malevolence of East Anglia University bad scientists, the global warming fallacy remains an active problem because, at the level of the states, various regional greenhouse gas initiatives are still being put in place. The governor of Maryland is trying to turn the state into a “corporate fascist state” with his Plan Maryland. California has introduced draconian measures to control the harmless trace gas carbon dioxide, necessary for all life. (Lord Monckton)
The Club of Rome, an environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations, shocked me with their blatantly false and outrageous statement that validated how the hard left thinks and acts, “The common enemy of humanity is man. In search of a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”
Climate scaremongering “is nothing less than shutting down the West.” If you shut down Maryland completely and return it to Stone Age, it will be extinguished or offset by three days of economic activity in China. “This global warming scare is an attempt to establish a tyranny over the mind of man. A love of nature… is something that lies very deep within all of us, and this is what the hard left is so ruthlessly and so profitably exploiting.” Don’t ever give money again to the Environmental Defense Fund, Greenpeace, and the Worldwide Fund, no matter how many cuddly teddy bears, panda bears, or penguins they show you.” In spite of spending $3 billion on environmental propaganda, these organizations are losing the argument. (Lord Monckton)
As soon as I finish this article, I will stop drinking Coca Cola products, I will order two cases of Rush Limbaugh’s tea, “Two if by Tea” and I will drink to polar bears that have nothing to fear from human activity.
