Next Up: The UN "Green Tax"

It's entirely possible that Obama will sign on to this.

It's very unlikely that the U S Senate will ratify.

The United Nations yesterday called for 2 percent of worldwide income to be invested in the green economy. The investment [sic], which would amount to $1.3 trillion a year, will pay for itself by providing millions of new jobs, developing new industries, cutting greenhouse gas emissions, saving money and providing health benefits from cleaner air, the United Nations said

Pigs fly, rain falls up, and UN programs 'pay for themselves.'

This demand is set to emerge in a treaty I have noted here before, plans for which include springing it on us three weeks before an event in Rio, in the Spring of our 2012 presidential election cycle, which President Obama will attend.

A nice place to visit, Rio.

Can we get the UN out of New York and the US.

And vice-versa.
