(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) During a climate conference in Bonn, Germany, globalists on Wednesday reiterated calls for the United States and other wealthy, Western nations to levy large taxes on citizens that could be redistributed to developing nations allegedly affected by climate change.

Climate activists complained that during last year’s COP26 conference in Glasgow, representatives had pledged financial kickbacks to smaller countries in return for cutting their carbon-dioxide emissions.
“The compromise was based on an understanding that countries would be willing to start talking and taking decisions on dealing with how to get that finance flowing for loss and damage,” said Alex Scott of the activist group E3G, according to the BBC.
“And we haven’t seen that come to fruition here,” he complained Wednesday. “Instead, we’ve seen a workshop set up to talk about how we can fix some of the problems.”
Meanwhile, activists from developing nations, such as Adriana Vasquez Rodriquez from Costa Rica’s Association La Ruta del Clima, blamed climate change triggered by industrialized countries for creating extreme poverty and deprivation in the tropical island paradise.
“We are already living with loss and damages for the last 25 years,” she claimed. “We have families who have lost their houses, their crops, their lives, and no-one is paying for that, we are running out of resources, and at the same time, we are depending on debt.”
Tasneem Essop of the Climate Action Network suggested that rich nations have looted poor nations for decades.
“Vulnerable nations are being betrayed by rich countries,” Essop said.
“The E.U., U.S., others have been blocking progress on loss and damage finance,” she continued. “We are extremely disappointed at what’s happening at the negotiations at Bonn.”
