French President Emmanuel Macron has called for a “global tax system” to be implemented to fund the green agenda in order to fight “climate change.”
While speaking at the Summit for a New Global Financing Pact in Paris on Friday, the French leader said actions from individual governments would prove futile in dealing with climate change.
Therefore, a new international taxation framework should be established, the former Rothschild banker said.
“I’m in favor of an international taxation to finance efforts that we have to make to fight poverty and in terms of climate [action],” Macron said, Politico reported.
“It doesn’t work when you do it alone; the [financial] flows go elsewhere,” Macron added.
Macron pointed out that France had already implemented taxes on financial transactions (FTT) as well as on air travel, France 24 reported.
“France already has in place two types of taxes that have been suggested: one on plane tickets, another on financial transactions,” he said, adding that he was going to “make others follow us and mobilize” around these issues.
“There has been a great deal of discussion on the idea of international taxation, over and above what countries and institutions are doing,” Macron continued.
“Whether it’s on financial transactions, maritime transport, or certain other models, it will only work if it’s truly international, and so it presupposes an agreement, as we’ve been able to do on international taxation,” he said.
Macron said the Paris-based Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) could be tapped for a negotiation process in order to create a global climate tax system for multinational corporations.
Meanwhile, the French president faces turmoil in his own country as the cost of living crisis in bother France and across Europe has worsened due to previous lockdowns and the failure of green energy to supply enough power for the loss of Russian energy in the wake of the Ukraine war.
Earlier this year, protests raged across France in response to Macron’s controversial pension reforms, which raised the retirement age from 62 to 64 years old.
The reforms were the final straw for the working classes regarding their increasingly draconian government.
The globalist declared last year that the people of Frane are “living through the end of abundance” while failing to acknowledge his government’s role in perpetuating policies, including the green agenda, which has caused economic devastation.
