The motives of such an activist/scientist would be suspect, as well, but they aren't, because the U.N.'s head climate puke just fessed up:
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.Yeah, what do you know? Saving the planet? So five minutes ago. Overthrowing capitalism? Totally hot. At least they say it out loud now. Environmentalists have always been watermelons -- green on the outside, red on the inside. They want government to control where you live, what you drive, where you build, your property, everything. They want socialism/communism -- complete government control of your life, supposedly in the name of protecting the planet from us. Many of them are downright Malthusian and claim the world can only support X billion people and we need to reduce population. Oddly enough, they never volunteer to be a part of the population that gets reduced.
"This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution," she said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: "This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history."
