A shocking statement was made by a United Nations official Christiana Figueres at a news conference in Brussels.

Figueres admitted that the Global Warming conspiracy set by the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, of which she is the executive secretary, has a goal not of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism. She said very casually:

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

She even restated that goal ensuring it was not a mistake:

“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

Here is one dated 02/10/2015. No idea if the story is actually a couple years old, or if the investors link is a typo on the date.

They've slipped up before and admitted its not about the environment at all:

https://www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/europe/item/8623-un-official-admits-cap-and-trade-is-wealth-redistribution


During an interview with Germany’s NZZ Online Sunday, UN official Ottmar Edenhofer declared, “We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
The interview went as follows:
(NZZ AM SONNTAG): The new thing about your proposal for a Global Deal is the stress on the importance of development policy for climate policy. Until now, many think of aid when they hear development policies.
(OTTMAR EDENHOFER, UN IPCC OFFICIAL): That will change immediately if global emission rights are distributed. If this happens, on a per capital basis, then Africa will be the big winner, and huge amounts of money will flow there. This will have enormous implications for development policy. And it will raise the question if these countries can deal responsibly with so much money at all.

Back before Glenn Beck was a complete nutter, he exposed Van Jones for stating the same thing. The Green Movement was about redistribution of wealth.

reminds Figueres that the only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.

Sustainable development.  China and India being the prime examples of economic development with deleterious environmental side effects (assuming you ascribe to such theories).  China's development is at best quasi-capitalism.

Notice I said examples.

In their mind the industrial development model we used and Europe used was unsustainable, especially now that more economies are being industrialized.  Again, sustainable development and capitalism are not mutually exclusive, and is probably what she is referring to.

Control of Western economies, like the US in particular.

Most countries can sign something like Kyoto and then cheat on it. The US won't. Which is why it was important to avoid it.

As we are seeing, there is wide pushback to the globalist agenda driven by the UN, the EU, and the Democratic party. They are not getting what they want so easily.

It isn't weak and impotent when you have world leaders like Obama and Merkel who are willing to sign on to the agenda.

I don't think that is exactly true. They want to control the economy and plan it. They somewhat grasp the failures of socialism. Their economic plans are more in line with fascism: government control but mostly private companies, which will have more freedom of action than you would find under true communism.

The goal of the left is control.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

Leaving capitalism, communism, and socialism out of it: it is clear she is talking about political elites changing the economic development model.

Is she part of a weak organization? Perhaps, but then why is she talking about such changes?

The basic fact that seems to elude you is that the West in large measure has fallen for some key, destructive ideas pushed by political elites. Hence the creation of the UN, EU, the push for open borders and the push to tax carbon and move towards energy sources that may never be able to provide energy to power advanced societies. They have pushed very far into a place that is "emperor has no clothes" territory.

Pushback has taken the form of Trump, Britexit, the Italian "No!" vote, and will probably ramp up as the elites double down and the self inflicted disasters continue.
