The United Nations global warming deal could make another five million people homeless in the world’s poorest countries, for the express purpose of setting forest land aside to slow global warming through conservation.
Millions who live in and depend on forests for their livelihoods could be evicted from their wooded homes, according to new study which will be released later this month.
The new study by the Rights and Resources Initiative shows implementation of the U.N.’s agenda in Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) could displace up to 4.1 million living in the heavily inhabited ecologically “protected” areas and another 0.9 million who depend on the region for their economic well-being. The intended goal of this mass displacement is to set aside local forest land to fight global warming.
“Governments have targets to expand their protected areas, and now with new climate funding being available the risk is they will use this to expand in a way that doesn’t respect local rights. It could result in the displacement of millions of people,” Andy White, from the Rights and Resources Initiative, told the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

In Paris: McKibben & Naomi Klein ‘Prosecuting’ on behalf of Exxon’s ‘victims’: ‘The People Vs. ExxonMobil A Public Trial for the Greatest Climate Crime of the Century’
THE PEOPLE VS. EXXONMOBIL:
Naomi Klein and Bill McKibben
Pacific Climate Warriors Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner; Joydeep Gupta of Third Pole Network; journalist Antonia Juhasz; Cindy Baxter of ExxonSecrets; Climate Scientist Jason Box; Ken Henshaw of Social Action Nigeria; Texas environmental justice advocate Bryan Parras ; and more.
This Saturday, renowned authors and climate activists Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein are hosting a public trial of ExxonMobil at the COP21 People’s Climate Summit in Montreuil. They’ll interview a series of star witness from around the world about Exxon’s lies and the climate impacts they, and other fossil fuel companies like Total, are responsible for.
A series of new revelations revealed that ExxonMobil scientists knew about climate change decades ago, but chose to bury the information and mislead the public and their shareholders about the dangers of the problem. Instead of warning the world about the climate crisis, Exxon spent millions to protect their profits at the expense of people everywhere.
Now, the pressure on Exxon is growing to pay for their crimes, with the #ExxonKnew campaign growing stronger everyday. In the United States, presidential candidates are calling for a formal investigation, the New York State Attorney General has launched a subpoena, and Secretary of State John Kerry has said Exxon could lose “billions” in a class action lawsuit.
Come hear the case against Exxon and join the movement to challenge the most dangerous company on the planet.
“The rapidly evolving Exxon scandal may represent the next great phase of the climate movement. Many of its victims are represented here in Paris, so it’s the perfect opportunity to collect testimony to the damage that 25 years of Exxon’s deception has wrought,” — Bill McKibben
Just in Time for Paris—Ice Galore
A UN “wealth redistribution scheme.” “In any event, regardless of who agrees to what at COP-21 in Paris, nature doesn’t care, the polar ice sheets will be waxing and waning as per her dictate alone.” – Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser ________________________________________________________________________ Just in Time for Paris—Ice Galore By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser November 7, 2015 You’ll have heard of it, COP-21, the latest United Nation conference on all things climate, coming to Paris (France) in December. Wouldn’t you know it, just in time for that “cataclysmic” event, nature does not want to play according to the organizers’ script. Rather than the polar ice caps having shrivelled to mere remnants by now, forecast for many years by all climate modelling enthusiasts, the polar ice shields have been growing by leaps and bounds. For example, according to a recent report by NASA scientists HJ Zwally et al., the Antarctic ice shield has been growing for 15 years already, even at an alarming rate. Then we learn that near the earth’s opposite pole, in Greenland, the rate of ice accumulation is breaking new records too; see the figure below (source: Danish Met. Inst., Nov. 7, 2015) and, last not least, the seasonal growth of the sea ice extent in the Arctic is not far behind. Consternation It must come as total consternation to all those people who have claimed for years now that “climate change” or “global warming” as it used to be termed is about ready to “incinerate” all life on earth. For example, “climate modellers” like S. Rahmstorf at Germany’s PIK have claimed for years that the polar regions would be most sensitive to any warming and that the polar ice masses were going to recede in a great hurry and that the ocean levels would rise fast. In reality, none of that is the case. In fact, the polar ice masses continue to grow, some reaching new all-time records in both ice extent and accumulated mass. Also ocean levels are NOT rising as previously predicted. If you feel somewhat confused, please don’t shoot the messenger. As the late Alan Caruba has claimed for years, the climate fear-mongering is nothing but an elaborate hoax. The fact that even Pope Francis subscribes to the climate gospel now does not cause the ice masses to shrink. Perhaps his Holiness’ recent encyclical letter “Laudato Si, on care …
