UN Report: And the Cost of ‘Greening’ the Entire World Will Be…

Before you hear the number, it’ll sound even crazier if you remember that we’re actually paying them to tell us these things.

Okay, according to the United Nations, the “greening” of the entire world (including decarbonization, Martinizing and undercoating) can be done for the bargain price of… $76 trillion:

Two years ago, U.N. researchers were claiming that it would cost “as much as $600 billion a year over the next decade” to go green. Now, a new U.N. report has more than tripled that number to $1.9 trillion per year for 40 years.

So let’s do the math: That works out to a grand total of $76 trillion, over 40 years — or more than five times the entire Gross Domestic Product of the United States ($14.66 trillion a year). It’s all part of a “technological overhaul” “on the scale of the first industrial revolution” called for in the annual report. Except that the U.N. will apparently control this next industrial revolution.

The new 251-page report with the benign sounding name of the “World Economic and Social Survey 2011” is rife with goodies calling for “a radically new economic strategy” and “global governance.”

Throw in possible national energy use caps and a massive redistribution of wealth and the survey is trying to remake the entire globe. The report has the imprimatur of the U.N., with the preface signed by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon – all part of the “goal of full decarbonization of the global energy system by 2050.”

Make no mistake, much of this has nothing to do with climate.

“Has nothing to do with the climate” indeed. It’s just a massive wealth transfer plan — or “prosperity spreading opportunity” as they say in the White House.

Much of the plan is long-term from today through 2050, but, according to the UN, there’s no reason we can’t “go green” much faster than that.

From the report:

There are examples of rapid national energy transitions. Portugal, for example, increased the share of renewables (including hydroelectric power) in total energy supply from 17 to 45 per cent in just five years, between 2005 and 2010.

And Portugal’s credit rating is now “junk,” they’ve been bailed out, and the national debt is 83% of its Gross Domestic Product. Yeah, let’s convince the rest of the world to do what they’re doing!

The “greens” are into making everything sustainable with the exception of spending.
