“When China comes into play we see the emergence of a global carbon market.” a World Bank official
Trying to piggy-back some spin on the Pope’s support of the banker elite’s “global warming” carbon agenda, Rachel Maddow breathlessly ranted about a “new” development coming out of China. The news was reported as being released by the Obama administration… not Chinese officials, by the way.
During her show Thursday, news broke that Chinese President Xi Jinping would announce his country will launch a national carbon emissions trading market in 2017…
China’s cap-and-trade program, which was first reported on by The New York Times, would mark a substantial step forward for the world’s largest polluter…
“President Obama, of course, has tried to get the U.S. Congress to pass this kind of program, or some other program to limit carbon in the U.S.,” Maddow said. “The congressional resistance has been in large part because China wasn’t doing enough. Therefore, why should we?”
Perhaps, Maddow speculated, the move will push Congress to act.
“Well now, if China is forging ahead here and dealing with climate change using a U.S.-designed policy to do so, this could change everything in the political climate around the climate climate,” she said. “This is huge news for the environment globally, and potentially for policy in the United States. This is almost as big as environmental news can get.” Huffington Post
Cap and trade is about as corrupt a potential ‘fix” for “global warming” as one can get. It will create a massive derivatives pool which will be bundled and sold and eventually it will create another balloon economy they can crash whenever they want. The idea that they will be able to dictate to ever country what they can produce, mine or consume is also an appealing aspect to the masters of the universe.
The fact that Rachel Maddow blindly supports the program isn’t surprising.
What is slightly surprising is the fact that she expects her audience to be incredibly ignorant of the “climate change” battle of the last few years. Here’s what I am talking about:
Back in Sept of 2014, The Climate Group announced their big news: China would create their own cap and trade carbon markets by 2016.
China will launch its eagerly awaited national Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) in 2016, an official anticipated to Reuters last Sunday. Once implemented, this market for carbon permit trading will become the biggest in the world, helping the largest greenhouse emitting nation to axe pollution.
So while Rachel and her producers are trying to present this as some kind of landmark accomplishment set to bring about the shift in congress over the “global warming” scam, in reality, they seem to have pushed back their plans by a year at least.
In 2013, news broke that the Chinese cap and trade market (scam) was going to be pushed back a couple years.
“China has committed to developing many different carbon markets over the next three years, and hopefully a national market sometime between 2016 and 2020,” he told a climate-change investor forum.
“In the past, rumours had it that that a national market could be up and running by 2015. But, I can assure you, that is just not feasible.” ASRIA 2013
So much for Rachel’s hyperventilating breaking news.
On a more personal note, you can purchase your own Personal Carbon Offsets through a company called TerraPass. What they do is take your money, send you a useless debit card looking thing, and you feel better about saving the world while they data-mine all your purchases and sell your info to Big Business.
Think I’m kidding?

Wow. And I thought Di$info Jone$’ Super Male Vitality scam was a joke.
Cap and Trade is the biggest scam they have on their agenda since .. well, since… ever. Enron, LIBOR, the sub-prime mortgage credit default swaps. None of those will come close to the scale of the fraud of the carbon credit markets. Not a single one.
It is almost beyond comprehension that Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) and Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) will introduce the Cap-and-Trade Act on Wednesday, May 12th, for consideration by the Senate. It is being passed off as a “climate bill” with provisions for more oil drilling, but it is an assault on reality, on science, on common sense, and on any future economic growth of the nation…
If the Cap-and-Trade Act is passed at the urging of the Obama administration, it will constitute the greatest tax on energy use in the history of the nation and it will energize exchanges, such as the one in Chicago, set up to buy and sell the carbon credits.
As reported by Investor’s Business Daily on May 7, “The carbon trading system being pushed here has spawned crime and fraud across the pond. Cap-and-Trade is not about saving the planet. It’s about money and power, and absolute power corrupting absolutely.”
The European Emissions Trading System is a warning to America. IBD described it as “a scam built upon a scam.” British and German law enforcement authorities have been busy arresting miscreants “as part of a pan-European crackdown on carbon credit VAT tax fraud.” And VAT, a valued added tax, is being advanced in the United States as a way to raise money to pay off our ever increasing debt.
“Last December,” reported IBD, “Europol, the European criminal intelligence agency, announced that Emissions Trade System fraud had resulted in about five billion euros in lost revenues as Europe’s carbon traders schemed to avoid paying Europe’s VAT and pocket the difference. In announcing the raid, the agency said that as much as 90% of Europe’s carbon trades were the result of fraudulent activity.” Canadian Free Press
The history of these markets and carbon tax schemes being exposed as frauds and going bust is quite long. I think they kicked the plan out of Australia not that long ago. Yep. They did.
Fact is, the cap and trade scam is brought to you by the same guys from Enron and Goldman Sachs who devised the sub-prime mortgage economic weapons of mass destruction. Yes, they want a global carbon market so they can steal trillions of dollars and impose their restrictions on every nation on the planet.
Watch this little video brought to you by people who want to do something about “global warming”, just not cap and trade.
Ain’t it cute how Rachel Maddow lets her true face show every now and then for those of us aware enough to notice?
