Goldman Sachs’ Turnbull dances to British carbon trading tune

The global warming scam has again flashed its “Made in Britain” label, in Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull’s sudden brinkmanship on the emissions trading scheme. During the Rudd Government, no issue has been more divisive in the parliamentary Liberal Party than Rudd’s CO2 emissions trading legislation, the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme. Instead of waiting for his party to agree to a position, Turnbull blew up the situation on 2nd October, by publicly attacking Liberal MPs who don’t support an ETS as “reckless and irresponsible” and “anonymous smart-arses”, and issuing an ultimatum-of-sorts, that he wouldn’t “lead a party that is not as committed to effective action on climate change as I am”. What is being called Turnbull’s “brain snap” caught everyone by surprise, but what’s most telling, is its timing—immediately after he returned from two weeks in Britain.

Britain is the birthplace of both the “science” and the “politics” of climate change superstition. The so-called science was invented by the British oligarchy’s genocidal “eugenics” project, originally founded by Charles Darwin and Sir Thomas Huxley, and led for the decades of the 1930s-1960s by Sir Thomas’s grandson, Sir Julian Huxley. Eugenics was race science—purifying the British Empire of “undesirable” strains through population reduction, euthanasia and forced sterilisations. Post-WWII, Hitler’s genocide was recognised as bad PR for eugenics, so Julian Huxley repackaged it as “environmentalism”, and helped to found Prince Philip’s population reduction charity, the World Wildlife Fund, in 1961.

Sir Julian Huxley’s cousin, Sir Crispin Tickell, another avowed population reductionist, launched climate change as a political issue in 1987, when as science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, he convinced Thatcher to issue a call at the United Nations for urgent international action to combat climate change. Thatcher’s call led to the establishment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), under Tickell’s supervision. Current British Tory leader David Cameron, with whom Turnbull fraternised on his visit, is firmly in the “Maggot Hatcher” tradition on climate change, and is said to be even more radical than Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown on the subject.

And, of course, Turnbull has his own, personal, motivation—Goldman Sachs. Turnbull made his fortune heading the Australian division of the giant Wall Street-City of London investment bank, which is now the world’s single biggest vested interest in an emissions trading scheme. The bank owns 10 per cent of Al Gore’s Chicago carbon exchange, and Gore’s three partners in his Generation Investment Management hedge fund in London, David Blood, Mark Ferguson and Peter Harris, are like Turnbull, all former Goldman Sachs executives.

In “The Great American Bubble Machine” published in the July edition of Rolling Stone magazine, author Matt Taibbi characterised Goldman Sachs as “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. …

“The formula is relatively simple: Goldman positions itself in the middle of a speculative bubble, selling investments they know are crap. … They’ve been pulling this same stunt over and over since the 1920s—and now they’re preparing to do it again, creating what may be the biggest and most audacious bubble yet. … the new game in town, the next bubble, is in carbon credits … a groundbreaking new commodities bubble, disguised as an ‘environmental plan,’ called cap-and-trade. The new carbon-credit market is a virtual repeat of the commodities-market casino that’s been kind to Goldman, except it has one delicious new wrinkle: If the plan goes forward as expected, the rise in prices will be government-mandated. Goldman won’t even have to rig the game. It will be rigged in advance.”

Turnbull’s recklessness underscores the City of London’s desperation to launch carbon trading, as their current financial system implodes. It is a vehicle for more globalisation, to block moves back to national sovereignty, and it provides a new financial infrastructure, a variation on classic British monetarism: reduce everything to a monetary value—“thin air” in the case of carbon trading—so it can be controlled by the money power.
