DISINFO: Climate change is pretext to put Russia under the yoke of economic oppression


By creating the climate change hoax, the globalists are eager to extract money from the signatories of the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement. It goes into trillions of US dollars and it is Russia that has to pay nearly the largest part of this sum. Hence, this is a way to keep Russia under the yoke of economic and financial oppression.


Conspiracy theory, presented without evidence. Climate change is a scientific fact. Humans are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth's temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down rainforests and farming livestock. This adds enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming. Preventing dangerous consequences of the climate change is the key priority for the EU. The conspiracy theory perpetuates a false claim that Russia has to carry a heavy burden associated with the implementation of the Paris Agreement. In fact, as a transition economy, Russia is not obliged to make contributions into the Green Climate Fund associated with the Paris Agreement at all. However, it can do so voluntarily with any amount that it wishes. See an earlier disinformation case alleging that the international bankers created the "Global Warming" hoax.
