European Green Ambitions Depend on the USA Funding Ukraine – Watts Up With That?

Essay by Eric Worrall

Here I argue US funding for Ukraine is liberating resources British and European governments are using to undermine Republicans, and drive their radical green agenda right into the heart of the American political landscape.

The following recent article by George Soros outlines his hope US intervention will lead to a speedy resolution of the Ukraine war, and the collapse of the Russian Empire, allowing resources currently tied up by the war to be diverted to climate action.

Russian defeat is inevitable, and will allow world to focus on our real problem — Climate change

The countries of the former Soviet empire eagerly await defeat of the Russian army in Ukraine, and the world will be able to focus on climate change, writes George Soros

It is just over one month ago that I gave a speech on the eve of the Munich Security Conference. Since then, so many remarkable things have happened — and have happened so fast — that it is worth comparing my predictions of a month ago with actual developments.

The biggest changes have occurred in the global climate system. By this, I mean actual climate events and climate scientists’ understanding of those events. The main message I wanted to convey in Munich was that the global climate system is greatly dependent on what happens within the Arctic Circle. 

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

The other domain where important changes have taken place is Russia’s war against Ukraine. Until October, Ukraine was winning on the battlefield. Then, Russia, with the help of Iran, introduced drones on a large scale. Their aim was to undermine Ukrainians’ morale by depriving the civilian population of electricity, heat, and water. This put Ukraine on the defensive.

The countries of the former Soviet empire, eager to assert their independence, can hardly wait for the Russian army to be crushed in Ukraine. At that point, Putin’s dream of a renewed Russian empire will disintegrate and cease to pose a threat to Europe.

The defeat of Russian imperialism will have far-reaching consequences for the rest of the world. It will bring huge relief to open societies and create tremendous problems for closed ones. Most importantly, it will allow the world to concentrate on its biggest problem, climate change.

What do people like Soros actually intend to do with all these resources they plan to liberate from the forced collapse of the Russian empire?

In 2017, we caught what I believe was a glimpse behind the curtain. Britain’s then climate minister boasted about her plan to use British Government resources to bypass the US federal government, to undermine support for President Trump’s energy policies.

UK bypasses Donald Trump to discuss climate change with US city mayors directly

Claire Perry, the Climate Change Minister, says British Government is now speaking to ‘other players’ in US about how to fight global warming

The UK has started bypassing Donald Trump over climate change, talking directly to city mayors and other officials committed to trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the new Climate Change Minister has revealed.

Claire Perry, who was appointed to the post after the general election last month, said that British ministers had not “missed an opportunity” to tell the US President that they were disappointed he had decided to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change, the news service Bloomberg reported.

She said she had been speaking to “other players” in the US, including the mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, who visited the UK last week.

Former UK climate minister Claire Perry may have let the cat out of the bag with her public boast of “bypassing” the Trump Administration, but I doubt she acted alone.

How would eliminating US funding for Ukraine help to rectify this outrageous situation?

I believe eliminating US funding for Ukraine would starve green activists in Europe of their indirect access to US taxpayer resources, resources I believe they are currently using to undermine US politicians who oppose climate action.

Soros himself pointed the way to this resolution, with his complaint that the Ukraine war is diverting resources away from climate action.

This is not about choosing sides in the Ukraine conflict, this is about preventing the misuse of US taxpayer funds.

Cutting off US funding for Ukraine would force Europe to fully pull their weight on defence spending, triggering an even greater diversion of resources away from European funded international climate activism, and would stop European actors from indirectly using US taxpayer funds to undermine and “bypass” US politicians who oppose their green agenda.
