I would have more faith in climate change fanatics if I didn't know about the 1992 U.N. conference in Rio on population control to reduce our carbon footprint.

The United Nations and the global rich who run them openly say this will be used to redirect wealth to those who best know how to use wealth — them.

We all want development of new clean energy sources, but a massive immediate clamp down on the people's use of fossil fuels is meant to do one thing: Transfer wealth from the 99 percent to the 1 percent. Then the rich will be able to absorb huge fuel cost increases. We won't.
