    How Governments React to Climate Change: An Interview with the Political Theorists Joel Wainwright and Geoff Mann

    …

    In “Climate Leviathan: A Political Theory of Our Planetary Future,” Joel Wainwright, a professor of geography at Ohio State University, and Geoff Mann, the director of the Center for Global Political Economy at Simon Fraser University, consider how to approach a problem of such international dimensions. They look at several different political futures for our warming planet, and argue that a more forceful international order, or “Climate Leviathan,” is emerging, but unlikely to mitigate catastrophic warming.

Bullshit.  We aren't even allowed to have National Sovereignty anymore.
I will NOT comply.

I was wondering when this Hail Mary pass at Global government would happen.

It is no accident that the Global Socialists are pushing the Climate Change thingy.
They see it as a tool to justify their totalitarian wet dreams.

And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses. Nehemiah 4:14 (KJV)

That's how it all started,  somebody noticed that temperatures were changing due to the end of the "Little Ice Age", then noticed it coincided with the start of the Industrial Revolution, and tried to correlate the two as a means of attacking Capitalism.

It was never about Climate.

It was always about Control...
