G7 ‘Build Back Better’ Mobilizes Green Finance for Destroying the World—Make Way for More Disease, Famine, War

June 13, 2021 (EIRNS)—The G7 joint statement released today at the close of the three-day summit, is a 25-page mish-mash under seven headings of commitment, with the least commitment to any measures that would seriously roll back the pandemic and famine. The strongest commitment is expressed for green finance, to realize a net zero world. It is a depopulation document.

The formal title is: “Carbis Bay G7 Summit Communiqué—Our Shared Agenda for Global Action To Build Back Better.” The statement is replete with the current jargon about inclusiveness, transparency, resilience, democracy, rules-based order, and so on. Thus, ironically and unfortunately, it shows just what is meant when Biden says, “The U.S. is back.” It’s an evil mess.

The welter of points ranges from denunciation of forced labor (read, asserting Uighurs are abused in China) discussed in the Free and Fair Trade section, to, in general, how there must be a “green, digital transformation” of the world economy, discussed in the Economic Recovery section.

The other main headings are Future Frontiers, Climate and Environment, Gender Equity and Global Response and International Action. All the green agenda points are identified at length, from eliminating use of coal, to setting aside land and water out of economic use. One small section on famine, calls for G7 nations to commit to $7 billion for relief, saying that 34 million people are at the point of famine.

The most forceful message comes on green finance.

“We emphasize the need to green the global financial system so that financial decisions take climate considerations into account. We support moving towards mandatory climate-related financial disclosures ... based on the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).... We also look forward to the establishment of the Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures ... this will reinforce government policy to meet our net zero commitments. We recognize the potential of high integrity carbon markets and carbon pricing to foster cost-efficient reductions in emission levels ... [we must] accelerate the decarbonization of our economies, to achieve a net zero global emissions pathway.”

And don’t forget, inclusiveness for women and girls.
