Mark Carney Tells Africa To Get Rich with Carbon Offsets by Rejecting Development
May 18, 2021 (EIRNS)—Speaking at “The Road to COP26: Opportunities, Challenges and the African Transition to Net-Zero” on April 22, Mark Carney spelled out his plan for mass death in Africa and the occupation of Africa by Green police—the modern version of colonial occupiers.
From Carney’s answers to a question about Africa getting funds from “carbon offsets,” he said that the “carbon offset market” will be set up by the end of the year. Africa will get rich, he said, by providing these offsets to Western companies who want to buy “offsets” for their carbon emissions. Carney said he was impressed by the “incredible service that is provided by the existing national capital in Africa, and the opportunity from emissions reduction, and to grow that through reforestation.”
What does the madman mean? By not developing its resources, and by not cutting down any trees—in fact, reforesting existing agricultural lands—Africa will be paid huge sums in “carbon offsets.” So, by not developing, they will get money for “development,” remaining forever without modern infrastructure, industry, or agriculture.
Carney claimed that “90% of demand from carbon offsets will come from advanced economies, and 90% of supply will come from the developing economies, including Africa. This is a market which could scale rapidly to $100 billion per annum.”
Of course, the “advanced economies” could not trust the wogs to live up to their promises, so a new kind of colonial overlord will be required. With all the warm caring of the British East India Company, Carney continued:
“Of course, there must be integrity around the offsets, and a degree of permanence of these offsets, with verification and monitoring of that permanence. This is a private market, so the offsets will be bought by private companies, like Microsoft. They are not going to make these commitments unless they know that in Rwanda or other places in Africa these offsets are permanent.”
Who, one may ask, will have the responsibility to “verify and monitor” that no African country breaks its business contract to not develop its resources or clear forests to build factories, farms, or new cities? The Green colonial masters will be more than willing to perform that important task.
