U.N. Climate Chief Sums Up Climate Change Agenda In 2 Frightening Words

Today is "Earth Day," and instead of simply planting a tree, leaders of many nations are preparing to sign something they hope will have a much bigger impact.

According to the New Haven Register, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is in the midst of making the U.S. one of over 170 nations signing the United Nations' Paris Agreement on climate change today. According to a CNN opinion piece, the treaty "more or less requires the entire world to get off fossil fuels this century."

It's not legally binding, however, but proponents have high hopes for the accord to enact significant changes around the globe.

In a USA Today opinion piece by the Weather Channel founder, John Coleman criticized the Obama Administration's willingness to sign the agreement and pointed out that U.N. Climate Chief Christiana Figueres has summed up the climate change agenda with two frightening words.

"Centralized transformation."

In an interview with Yale Environment 360, Figueres said, "This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it's a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different."

Coleman also noted the words of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change co-chair and UN official Dr. Ottmar Endenhofer who expressed, "one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy."

And the words of the recently resigned United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change head Rajendra Pachauri who wrote in February that "For me the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma."

Those who have led up to this Paris Agreement, Coleman believes, should make you concerned that America is so willing to sign it.
