It seems that President Donald J Trump is not globalist enough in his approach, though the purveyors of the formation of world governance couch the divide in the narrative of either being for saving the planet (the fight against climate change) or hating the planet (not wanting to concede to the formation of a world government for the sake of saving the planet).
The World Bank is making it clear that it intends on going full bore with its noble goal of saving the planet by divesting its interests in fossil fuels. After you read the excerpt from the pro-world-bank article in The Conversation, please watch the video below from the Corbett Report on “Why Big Oil Conquered the World” to get a behind-the-curtain understanding of what’s really going on with this seeming “noble” shift by the World Bank.
This move brings its actions more in sync with its overarching commitment to slowing the pace of climate change and keeping the Paris agreement on track. Based on my research regarding international relations, I see this move – which World Bank President Jim Yong Kim announced in December – as significant for two reasons.
The bank has signaled that the international community is taking the fight against global warming more seriously than ever. And it shows that the bank intends to keep playing a leading role in that battle at a time when its most powerful shareholder, the U.S., is turning its back on global environmental leadership.
Kim has been taking the World Bank in a direction that climate change activists and other critics have long advocated by positioning the institution as a global environmental leader since he became its president in 2012.
In 2013, the bank decided to stop financing the construction of coal-fired power plants, except in cases where no viable alternatives existed.
The bank’s climate efforts are wide-ranging. It lends money to build solar and wind farms, requires its borrowers to take steps to shrink their carbon footprints, and has a goal of “greening the whole financial system.”
