The new United Nations climate honcho, Christiana Figueres, says “democracy” isn’t fit for fighting Global Warming. If we really wanna Save the Planet, we gotta turn to… communism!
Is she purposely trying to satirize herself? Not only is communism the best way to fight Global Warming, she says: but China ought to be the world’s role model. China? The biggest polluter on earth–that China? Where you can practically cut the air with a knife and pile it in stacks? Yup, that China.
Where do they find these people? Well, Ms. Figueres, born in Costa Rica, is a lifelong bureaucrat from a family of bureaucrats, and for many years has been a paid Global Warming-monger. In other words, she has spent her entire life totally insulated from reality. No wonder she doesn’t believe in democratic institutions! She’s never been introduced to one.
Yowsah, yowsah, communism is the answer. Re-open the gulags. Get them re-education camps back into gear.
Did you know that, under communism, a single cubic yard of Polish soil contained enough lead to make a lead soldier?
Did you know that, under the genius of the USSR’s central planners, they practically dried up the Aral Sea–once one of the world’s largest lakes?
