Yep.........That was always the number one goal. To redistribute OUR money.
This whole thing had alot more to do with dollar signs then it EVER had to do with Hockey sticks. As is usually the case.
The UN doesn't even disguise their motives behind its bogus IPCC 'climate science' policy group:
The world can no longer afford to ignore the environmental cost of economic growth and must redefine the very concept of national wealth, a UN panel of heads of state and environment ministers said Monday.
The panel challenged leaders to recognise that "current global development is unsustainable."
"We need to chart a new, more sustainable course for the future, one that strengthens equality and economic growth while protecting our planet," UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in Addis Ababa to mark the release of the panel's report, which outlines more than 50 policy recommendations.
Social and environmental costs must be factored into how the world prices and measures economic activity, and into a revised measure of wealth that goes beyond the narrow calculus of gross domestic product (GDP), it said.
Translation: Rich countries like the US must be punished and we (the UN) will do whatever it takes to accomplish this goal, even if it means creating false 'crises' like the global warming hoax in order to relieve the US of its ill-gotten capitalist wealth.
