This was not my idea of what the UN should be.I thought they were supposed to bring the world up, not down. Are they going too far?
Take for instance Global warming. We do not know if it is due to our behavior or celestial behavior or the Earth's natural cooling or the Suns' natural cooling, and yet decisions are being made for us raising costs of living.
This price gouging attack on societies, does not stop the oil from being sold, or the rich from getting obscenely rich doing things to continue to pollute the earth.They continue to make money and live a good life no matter which country they live in Their products still sell and the public is punished instead of the rich and companies doing the selling. Look what they are doing in the arctic? They don't care about global warming. They care about money. The UN should stop them but it doesn't.
The UN is there to bring nations up. It is not there to make a judgment decision, that if you are a have country, you should be put down to be on an equal level to a have not country. On the other hand, it is up to the people to speak up and if they don't, then this means they are happy with what they have or rather what they are losing and don't have. Someone who has nothing, doesn't miss not having something and finds being intruded upon to create something for him, rather arrogant and threatening as for example the few tribal societies left in some countries, who love being who they are in the forests they live in. They have things we don't and will never understand or appreciate, for what it is. The Muslim countries are the same. They are used to their dust basins and oil. They don't like our life style and those who do, escape. lol
Instead of keeping money in our own pockets, we are being charged and taxed and give money to governments, who then put it into the salaries and pensions of bureaucrats or into someone's expense account. It doesn't go to subsidize the gas prices we need to live our normal lives.It doesn;t go into health care or into education for our children. It magically disappears.
We should plant more trees and force the UN to do the job it was put together to do or leave it. We do not need the UN to destroy the Arctic, or to keeping the masses down, feeling bad about the planet, when the leaders of countries don't seem to care at all. This includes Russia, China and Europe.

Hey, wait a minute!!! We are! What the hell happened!!
The oil companies have their reasons they say but they don't because they spend so much money on other things. If they stopped using oil money for other things and kept it in the oil business, then the prices would come down.
