Another Global Warmist Backs A One-World Government

Gary Stix, an editor at Scientific American, recommends a strong world government that can crush local democracy and whip up a permanent fear campaign:

To be effective, a new set of institutions would have to be imbued with heavy-handed, transnational enforcement powers. There would have to be consideration of some way of embracing head-in-the-cloud answers to social problems that are usually dismissed by policymakers as academic naivete. In principle, species-wide alteration in basic human behaviors would be a sine qua non, but that kind of pronouncement also profoundly strains credibility in the chaos of the political sphere. Some of the things that would need to be contemplated: … Would any institution be capable of instilling a permanent crisis mentality lasting decades, if not centuries? How do we create new institutions with enforcement powers way beyond the current mandate of the U.N.? Could we ensure against a malevolent dictator who might abuse the power of such organizations?

I’ve said it again and again. Global warming is the new home of the closet totalitarian.

Only now they’re not in the closet any longer.

UPDATE

Meanwhile, Dr David Evans compares the predictions of the warming models to what is actually happening, and … oh, dear.

UPDATE 2

Australia’s Gillard Government’s price on CO2 emissions is set so high it will hurt, and with the World one so low, it won’t work:

INTERNATIONAL carbon prices are predicted to be as low as $5 by 2020, undermining the ability of Australia’s carbon package to force technological changes to cut emissions, one of the world’s leading emissions pricing forecasters has told big business…

The $5 carbon price forecast has been produced by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, which last week briefed the nation’s largest emitters at an Australian Industry Greenhouse Network meeting.

The imminent introduction of Australia’s $23 a tonne price from July 1 has sparked concerns from major business groups in the wake of the collapse in the EU emissions trading price to about $10…

Some peak industry bodies are this week expected to discuss a renewed push for a rear-guard effort calling on the government to either drop the $23 carbon price to $10 or delay the scheme altogether, as anxiety about the impending introduction of the scheme mounts.
