Maurice Strong dies – his influence on ‘global warming’ & more…
When we wrote our first article on ‘global warming’ in 2007, I explained the influence of Maurice Strong – a Canadian billionaire who was the organiser of the United Nations ‘Earth Summit’ at Rio in 1992 – which resulted in the establishment of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and eventually led to the ‘climate talks’ being held in Paris this week. The Rio Summit followed on from the formation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) by the United Nations in 1988.
Maurice Strong died this week – and British columnist James Delingpole has written an insightful article about the influence that Maurice Strong had on the whole ‘global warming’ agenda over the years. The obituary notice published by the United Nations Environment Program explains his involvement in detail. Mr Strong also designed ‘Agenda 21’, which has become an attempt to create ‘sustainable development’ (more on that next week…) James writes, “He was the main instigator of the blueprint for arguably the most sinister and insidious assault on liberty and free markets: Agenda 21.” Maurice Strong also thought that a huge reduction of the world’s population would provide a “glimmer of hope”!
Two additional facts which aren’t included in James’ article – which document Maurice Strong’s even longer-term involvement in UN environment matters: Mr Strong was the ‘founding director’ of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) from 1973 to 1975. He also organised the first UN environment conference, “Conference on the Human Environment, 1972” in Stockholm. His opening speech set out his goal of international ‘co-operation’ and global organisation to control the environment – read it here.
The photo in this E-News (Maurice Strong on right) was taken during the planning of the 1972 conference.
But as James points out, it wasn’t just ‘global warming’ and the environment that were Strong’s concerns: “It [the UN] was where, he quickly realized, he could achieve his dream of a world of global governance by a self-appointed elite. And the best way to go about this, he understood, was by manipulating and exploiting international concern about the environment.”

Ding, Dong – The Godfather Of Global Warming Is Dead!
James Delingpole, Breitbart, 1/12/2015.
Paris, COP21 Climate Summit – One of the most dangerous men of the Twentieth Century has just died: and the weird thing is, hardly anyone noticed.
His name was Maurice Strong (picture above, on the right), Canadian billionaire, diplomat and UN apparatchik, and though you may not have heard of him, he probably did more to make your world a more expensive, inconvenient, overregulated, hectored, bullied, lied-to, sclerotic, undemocratic place than anyone post Hitler, Stalin and (his personal friend) Mao.
He’s the reason, for example, that most of the world’s leaders, 40,000 delegates and their attendant carbon mega-footprint descended here on Paris yesterday in order to talk about magical fairy dust for two weeks and then charge you $1.5 trillion (that’s per year, by the way) for the privilege.
He’s the reason that “climate change” is now so heavily embedded within our system of global governance that it is now almost literally impossible for any politician or anyone else whose career depends on the state to admit that’s it not a problem and to argue that there are more important issues in the world, like maybe the terrorism that killed over 130 innocent people just the other week now, where was it?- oh yeah, here in Paris where for some bizarre reason all the delegates are talking about carbon emissions instead…
He was the father of the mother of all climate summits: the one in Rio in 1992 that spawned a million and one bastard offspring, like the one in Paris now.
He was the main instigator of the blueprint for arguably the most sinister and insidious assault on liberty and free markets: Agenda 21.
