Maurice Strong shills for Rio+20 from Canadian newspaper boardrooms

In days of yore dapperly dressed carny men sold cure-all medicine elixirs to gullible citizens attending circuses and county fairs.
Today it’s ecosocialism’s great granddaddy, C02 shyster Maurice Strong.
One rarely heard from Strong after he hightailed it to China in the aftermath of the United Nations Oil for Food scandal. A country, according to Strong’s own words, graced by his presence at least 50 percent of the time.
When Strong resurfaced in the Land of the Maple Leaf this week, it was to attend editorial board conferences of the Ottawa Citizen and The Globe and Mail, shilling for next month’s Rio de Janeiro global summit known as Rio+20. It was the first Rio Earth Summit led by Strong that cast a no-going-back spell on society with the soon to be forced advent of ‘sustainability’.
Following the Strong editorial board meeting,The Globe and Mail, Canada’s business newspaper of record, blared out headlines that “China bests Canada in tackling climate change”.
“China is outpacing Canada in determination to tackle climate change and rein in greenhouse gas emissions, says Maurice Strong, a long-time environmentalist and secretary-general of the first global Earth Summit 20 years ago.” (Globe and Mail, April 30, 2012).
In Maurice Strong doublespeak ‘determination’ to tackle climate change and rein in greenhouse gas emissions’, is the same thing as doing it, so where’s China’s Nobel?
Back for now to The Globe and Mail:
“Once a leader in the global environment movement, Canada is now seen as a serious laggard, with even emerging countries like China showing more commitment to costly adjustments to reduce emissions, the high profile businessman and diplomat said in an interview on Monday.”
How anyone could take seriously a man whose wife kept a “round-the-clock drum beat from Mother Earth” going while bigwigs like her hubby were changing the world during the first Rio de Janeiro global Earth Summit remains an unsolved mystery. But then again at today’s editorial board meetings, anything goes.
The National Post’s Peter Foster got it right: “Hilariously, the grand old man of global ecosocialism, Maurice Strong, suggested to The Globe and Mail this week that Mr. Harper might be blinded to the truth by “ideology”. Mr. Strong, presumably, sees himself as motivated only by objective science and universal compassion.”
That China is “besting” Canada in tackling climate change is not Strong’s only claim in the China Besting Category. Strong, who is (presumably) paid to work for Communist China and not his native born Canada, has made it perfectly clear he thinks everything in China is better than everything in both Canada and the United States.
An indication of his hefty influence in China can be found in the words of Nicholas Sonntag, a Canadian who heads up the Beijing office of CH2M Hill—one of the world’s leading environmental companies: “They’re taking a big risk,” Sonntag said of China back in 2003. “They’re determined to be the economic engine of the world. This is why Maurice is here—to help them think things through.”
One man helping an entire country “think things through” is a tall order.
For decades Maurice Strong, the man who would deny the masses air conditioning and meat on the dinner table, has been boasting that China would soon replace the United States as the world superpower.
Inching along his dreams of that happy day, Strong once joined up with billionaire George Soros to sink millions of dollars into a Communist China automaker that manufactured the “Chery”.
Strong and Soros aimed to decimate Ford, Chrysler and GM by flooding the U.S. market with cheapo Cherys on a 2007 timeline, and though Chery failed, the rest as they say, is history.
Why is it that Maurice Strong is given instant access to the board rooms of prominent Canadian newspapers?
At one time being so openly anti-Canadian and anti-American would be regarded as treasonous.
But treason takes a back seat when there’s so much money to be made on the manufactured lies sustaining all things C02.
