Tireless advocate Nicholas Stern continues the push for multiple global taxes continues in the hope that at least one or more of these revenue streams opens up – which, as the Copenhagen document revealed, would necessitate the construction of additional international financial architecture to administer it. As is usually the case, this is the real point of the urgent, tearful appeals, the demonization of climate skeptics as ‘deniers’, the wholesale falsification of climate data – to loot, to funnel money into the coffers of emerging international institutions, to centralize economic power. Let’s recap some information about ‘Lord’ Nicholas Stern, shall we?
Nicholas Stern sits on the board of an intergovernmental panel on carbon capture and storage technology alongside James Wolfensohn and major international corporate interests (Chevron? Exxon? Shell? Halliburton??), and helped found the Carbon Ratings Agency. A former World Bank chief economist — that’s the World Bank, people, which has called for a world government, and which is no friend of the third world — you might say that Stern is somewhat invested in the idea of global warming. He’s Vice Chairman of the IDEAGlobal group, which is described as “… an independent, global, research organization, with its headquarters in Singapore, and subsidiaries in New York and London. IDEAGlobal Group is a leading supplier of independent and impartial advice to 50 central banks in the formation of policy and is read by financial professionals in over 1,000 dealing rooms worldwide. Of the 50 largest financial institutions as ranked by Euromoney, all but four are clients of IDEAglobal. Group companies include IDEAglobal and IDEAcarbon.” Nice Rolodex, Mr. Stern. More about his connections to the UNFCCC, GEF, IPCC and other globalist institutions invested in carbon monetization may be found here.

Add another big voice to those calling on Prime Minister Stephen Harper to talk about climate change at the Group of 20 summit in Toronto next month.
Nicholas Stern, the British economist who authored a seminal 700-page study on the economics of global warming in 2006, says the G20 has a role in achieving the “political agreement” that he believes is necessary to advance on the commitments made at the United Nations’ climate change conference in Copenhagen in December.
Among those commitments is a pledge to raise $30-billion (U.S.) over three years to help developing countries adapt “low-carbon” economic policies. Leaders promised to increase that sum to $100-billion a year by 2020, but without working out how the money will be raised or where it might come from.
The G20, which includes the world’s major economies, should play a role in answering those questions, Lord Stern said after a speech at the International Monetary Fund in Washington Wednesday evening.
“You can’t really discuss the finance on the scale that we are talking about unless the G20 is involved and involved this year,” Lord Stern, a professor at the London School of Economics and a former advisory to the British government, said in response to my question. “It is very important that [the G20] looks at it and looks at it in a welcoming way.”
