To put it tersely, he told a German news outlet: "[W]e redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy." The full comment and source is there, if you hit the "Show More" button. Steyn goes for laughs sometimes, but the essence is there. He is ultimately serious.
If you understand just how literally the UN wants to make itself into a third-world instrument to use as its own power base, a kind of state without a territory that makes vassals of the developed world, you would understand the motivation. Except for China, India, etc. etc. The UN means to carve out a percentage and control the flow of capital to a wide range of capital-starved nations. There would be huge power in such a thing.
