Those State Department Wikileaks that discuss anthropogenic global warming (AGW) show the Obama Administration plotting to torpedo the UN global warming Pact as much as six months prior to the December 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change summit. I am mad at myself, because I was unable to figure out the reasons for the failure. I thought failure of the UN proposal at the Copenhagen summit was a result of the release of the Climategate Emails and the belief that the US Congress would not pass Cap and Trade nor ratify any climate treaty. But all along it was Obama’s folks out there buying votes. Well I did not know, but a lot of countries did. They were lining up at the State Department’s door to get their share of our money.
It appears that the US and the EU concluded that the price to play the global warming scam was too high using the UN’s proposed Pact. That Pact would have made Robin Hood look like a piker doing the “take from the rich and give to the poor” routine.
But I am mad at Obama and all those countries that clearly demonstrate once again, that the faulty science of AGW does not concern them. They are in it for the money and the control.
So, I have an answer to my opening question. My actions did not hurt anyone. Obama’s, at a high cost, continued to perpetuate the fraud that is AGW.
A posting by the UK Guardian (Guardian is supportive of AGW) , discusses their findings as they searched through the leaked State Dept. files. It seems that the US and the EU wanted what was later called the Copenhagen Accord. Both the original UN Pact and the Accord contained restrictions on CO2 emissions and offered reparations to those nations that were being or would be “devastated” by AGW. The difference seemed to be how big the reparations would be and how large the CO2 reductions would be. There are 193 voting bodies in the UN, most would be recipients of the reparations. By February 2010, according to the last set of Wikileaks, 140 now support the Copenhagen Accord.
The method used to achieve this “success” is pretty chilling. From the Guardian posting is this:
The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial “Copenhagen accord”, the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.
Negotiating a climate treaty is a high-stakes game, not just because of the danger warming poses to civilisation but also because re-engineering the global economy to a low-carbon model will see the flow of billions of dollars redirected.
Seeking negotiating chips, the US state department sent a secret cable on 31 July 2009 seeking human intelligence from UN diplomats across a range of issues, including climate change. The request originated with the CIA. As well as countries’ negotiating positions for Copenhagen, diplomats were asked to provide evidence of UN environmental “treaty circumvention” and deals between nations.

For those readers who still think that the AGW leaders really care about the science, stay tuned for the following quotes posted on the American Thinker Blog:
Indeed, for nearly 50-years the U.N. has formulated its own unique brand of “social justice” under the guise of “saving the planet” by demonizing one byproduct of Western economic growth or another. Carbon Dioxide is, of course, merely the devil’s derivative du jour.
Now, a high-ranking member of the U.N’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has admitted that climate policy has little to do with environmental protection.
On Sunday, Ottmar Edenhofer, a German economist and IPCC Co-chair of Working Group III on Mitigation of Climate Change, told the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (translated) that “climate policy is redistributing the world’s wealth” and that “it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization.”
Edenhofer went on to explain that in Cancun, the redistribution of not only wealth but also natural resources will be negotiated, adding that:
The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War.
