The Ten Green Commandments – coming soon forcibly to you

TUESDAY 6-10-08…The idea of a carbon footprint calculator was conjured up by Maurice Strong who organized the first World Environmental Summit in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1972. In 1990, Strong attended the World Economic Forum which was held in Davos, Switzerland, where 1,000 diplomats, CEO’s and politicians gathered to address global issues. He became good friends with Al Gore.

It was at that meeting in 1990, where Strong told a reporter “the real goal of the Earth Charter is it will in fact become like the Ten Commandments. It will become a symbol of the aspirations and commitments of people everywhere.” He then advanced this scenario: “What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? In order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?”

By 1992, Strong was selected to chair the 1992 UN Conference and Environment and Development in Rio. He then became senior advisor to then-UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and currently serves on the board of the World Economic Forum.

When Al Gore’s book “Earth in the Balance” came out, one could see the influence Maurice Strong had on our then-Vice President. With Strong openly speculating about a collapse of Western industrial society being necessary, so too does Al Gore’s book. What instrument does one use to cause such a collapse?

Dr. Timothy Ball, renowned environmental consultant and former climatologic professor at the University of Winnipeg uses this analogy: “You can squeeze the fuel line and starve the engine…or you can stop an engine by plugging the exhaust.

Maurice Strong’s method is not a physical stop as one would do with an engine, but a metaphorical stop. Show how one part of the industrial exhaust is causing catastrophic global warming, putting the survival of the planet in jeopardy….and you have your instrument.”

Isn’t that exactly what we’re seeing happening today?
