Zero Hedge: “In a dramatic stroke of luck for the Kremlin, this morning there is hardly a person in the world who is happier than Russian president Vladimir Putin because overnight state-run OAO Rosneft announced it has discovered what may be a treasure trove of black oil, one which could boost Russia’s coffers by hundreds of billions if not more, when a vast pool of crude was discovered in the Kara Sea region of the Arctic Ocean, showing the region has the potential to become one of the world’s most important crude-producing areas, arguably bigger than the Gulf Of Mexico.
The announcement was made by Igor Sechin, Rosneft’s chief executive officer, who spent two days sailing on a Russian research ship to the drilling rig where the find was unveiled today.”
Opinion: Vladimir is not concerned with climate change. Vladimir understands that natural gas and oil are the life blood of every economy in the world and great wealth and power comes to those who control it.
Vladimir will play along with the climate charade, but like the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the world’s wealthiest nations agreed to act first to cut their greenhouse-gas emissions, Russia later backed out of the agreement, and the US never ratified the treaty.
What’s more, the Kyoto Protocol specifically exempted developing countries like China and India — on the theory that they should be allowed to get richer before being forced to act. Now, two decades later, China is the world’s biggest emitter of carbon-dioxide is once again exempt, so this treaty has some pretty obvious holes.
On September 15, 2014 the UN held a big climate summit in New York City as a prelude to talks on a new agreement to tackle global warming. Negotiations will go for over a year, with a meeting in Lima this December and a final meeting in Paris at the end of 2015.
The ultimate prize for the UN is an agreement with “legal force” that commits all nations to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions. Unlike President Bush’s and Clinton’s reluctance on Kyoto, President Obama is a fierce proponent of giving the UN governance control.
Daniel’s 4th beast, global government, is in focus:
“Then I desired to know the exact meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its claws of bronze, and which devoured, crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet” Daniel 7:19.
