The real global warming agenda

The New York Times reports:
European Union leaders on Friday offered to contribute money to a global fund to help developing countries tackle global warming hoping kick-start stalled talks on a new agreement on climate change.

The European Commission had called on E.U. leaders to make an offer of up to 15 billion euros annually by 2020.

Mr. Reinfeldt, the Swedish prime minister, said leaders had instead agreed that developing nations needed about 100 billion euros annually by 2020 and that, of that sum, between 22 billion euros and 50 billion euros would have to come from public funds, as opposed to private sources like investments in carbon-reduction projects.
Global Warmism is all about government redistribution of wealth. If global warming didn't exist, the left would have to invent it. (Hat tip: Sweetness & Light)

In addition to global wealth redistribution, global warming also serves a domestic agenda. Last May, in regards to global warming, Speaker Pelosi said "Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory." Democrats generally advocate increased government control of individual lives. Global warming provides the excuse to regulate "every aspect." (Hat tip: Robert L.)
