The true cost of going "green"

Two years ago, U.N. researchers were claiming that it would cost as much as $600 billion a year over the next decade to go green.

Now, a new U.N. report has more than tripled that number to $1.9 trillion per year for 40 years.

So let's do the math: That works out to a grand total of $76 trillion, over 40 years -- or more than five times the entire Gross Domestic Product of the United States ($14.66 trillion a year).

Oh, OK then. Let's just do that then.  Anything else?  Oh, there's this: The new  251-page report with the benign sounding name of the “World Economic and Social Survey 2011” is rife with goodies calling for “a radically new economic strategy” and “global governance/ That's it?  Just a total restructuring of our economy and government.   The environmental movement stopped being about pollution a long time ago.  It's about power and control.  Somewhere along the line, Leftists figured out that their policies were both unpopular and unworkable.  To get around this problem they've used judicial fiat and regulation to advance their agenda.
