Just who the hell do the EU think they are? The EU is broke, they have borrowed from the Chinese and now they threaten to fine Chinese Airlines and impose sanctions against China, well the mighty Red Dragon has said DO ONE!
China’s airlines are standing strong against an EU Carbon Tax that is being forced globally without proper authority. All under the discredited guise of climate change.
On the dawn of 2012 the European Union enacted its Emissions Trading Scheme, which taxes airlines within the Union for the amount of CO2 they produce. Overstepping the mark, the suits in Brussels are attempting to force the legislation worldwide.
Since China is not part of the EU and does not recognize European law the China Air Transport Association rightfully refused to bow down to the suits in Brussels and has vowed not to cooperate.
On Thursday Chai Haibo, head of the CATA told the media:
“The CATA, on behalf of Chinese airlines, is strongly against the EU’s improper practice of unilaterally forcing international airlines into its ETS.”
However, the brazen superstate has “thrown the baby out with the bath water” and claims they’ll impose sanctions on China if they don’t comply, ultimately forgetting that the EU is bankrupt and China is the leading economy in the world.
Threats have included fining Chinese airlines that fly planes in and out of the EU and even prohibiting them from doing so. Of course cutting ties to Chinese air trade would be a disastrous and frankly unlikely scenario. The EU needs China more than China needs the EU. It’s just another case of the western globalists puffing up their chests to continue the illusion of their economic power.
EU climate action talking head Isaac Valero-Ladron proclaimed:
“We don’t work on the basis of threats, but on discussions.”
Somebody probably needs to remind him that enforcing a global law without international consent and then claiming sanctions will be next, is one of the most exacerbating threats you could make on the world stage. He needs to pull his head out of his ass!
Of course in keeping with the global governance agenda US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pledged America’s commitment to the scheme, despite intial outcry from US airlines. As if the the US need anymore of their plummeting wealth being shipped to offshore banks.
Rioters on the streets of Europe, who would be working class if there was work, probably gave up the luxury of air travel long ago, but for the middle class that can still manage it, they’ll be met with a fair increase of between 2 and 12 euros per passenger. After all, corporations don’t pay tax, they pass it on to the customer.
Tony Tyler, director general of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), made a very important point to the BBC:
“The money being raised through this measure, along with all the money being raised by other taxes that are imposed on the industry in the name of the environment, none of it gets spent on anything that’s going to reduce emissions.”
So even if you think sea levels are going to wash us away or that we’ll all die from sun burn, it’s not like paying to pollute is going to solve anything. But then again it was never meant to. Global Governance is about global control not global peace.
