Top UN Climate Official: World Conflict and Refugee Chaos if you Disobey

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

According to the UN’s top climate official Patricia Espinosa, if nations fail to follow the UN’s direction on climate change, they will face food shortages, conflict and a flood of climate refugees.

Cop26: ‘World conflict and chaos’ could be the result of a summit failure 

Top climate official issues strong warning on effect of unchecked greenhouse gases ahead of summit

Fiona Harvey, environment correspondent
Sun 24 Oct 2021 18.35 AEDT

Global security and stability could break down, with migration crises and food shortages bringing conflict and chaos, if countries fail to tackle greenhouse gas emissions, the UN’s top climate official has warned ahead of the Cop26 climate summit.

Patricia Espinosa, executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said: “We’re really talking about preserving the stability of countries, preserving the institutions that we have built over so many years, preserving the best goals that our countries have put together. The catastrophic scenario would indicate that we would have massive flows of displaced people.”

The impact would cascade, she said, adding: “It would mean less food, so probably a crisis in food security. It would leave a lot more people vulnerable to terrible situations, terrorist groups and violent groups. It would mean a lot of sources of instability.”

She told the Observer in an interview: “It doesn’t only speak to the environmental side. It is also about the whole system we have built. We know what migration crises have provoked in the past. If we were to see that in even higher numbers – not only international migration, but also internal migration – [it would] provoke very serious problems.”

My question – are we talking about chaos, or are we talking about chaos chaos? Maybe chaos chaos chaos, which is even worse?

Back in the real world, CO2 fertilisation has created statistically significant global greening. Wheat production in India this year busted an all time record.

There is no genuine evidence that our current warming is anything but good for the world, other than the dysfunctional models of climate alarmists.

Foreign aid disbursed by the United States just for 2021:

I’m sure some of the money has/is making a difference, but plenty of it has ended up in the pockets of elected/unelected officials and their cronies. Yet the UN wants to essentially threaten everyone for more.

Answer: none of the suffering is caused by the glacially slow pace of climate change that takes multiple generations to manifest any significant problem.

Most of the suffering is caused by wretched governance and most of that in countries with no freedom or representative self-government, though in ostensibly free countries irrational government policies that artificially increase the cost of cheap energy and reduce access to it leads to suffering.

Don’t worry about “climate refugees”, Eric. I watched a climate change genius on CNN say that it costs US $45,000 to maintain one refugee (actually illegal alien, but that’s another topic) in the USA, and here’s a great idea, wait for it…for only US$12,000 per year these poor “Climate Refugees” can safely shelter in place and not undertake their forced death march, saving US $33,000 per year per “Climate Refugee”. Genius! All the wannabe “Climate Refugees” have to do is raise their hand and confess their intentions, and voila! US$12,000 per year is theirs! I think I will declare myself a “Climate Refugee” wait for it…

I agree with the your comment about the welcome mat for illegal immigrants, they are welcomed due to a higher percentage of them voting Democrat.

Jefferson, Nye county, Nevada, thinking they were Christopher Colombus types blazing new trails, but it turns out they were idiot outcasts from the more prosperous groups in the lush valleys below. How many of these illegal immigrants abandon a successful family business and strike out on an adventure?

Ebola may be coming to the U.S. through the southern border. If I lived in one of the African nations plagued by Ebola, I would move to the United States in hopes of escaping that disease. But maybe I contracted it on the way to the United States. Sorry about that, Americans. It was an accident that I brought this disease to your nation.

And of course, Ebola is just one of a number of deadly diseases that could be coming across the U.S. southern open border right now. Biden doesn’t care.

This UN nonsense was inevitable in the run up to COP26.
The UN FCCC has three problems it cannot avoid and cannot hide, no matter how shrill they are:

None of their negative ‘prognostications have come true. Not even a little bit. In fact quite the opposite—more food, more polar bears, more fossil fuels.

Their renewables solution doesn’t work at any meaningful grid penetration: too expensive, intermittent requiring backup, no grid inertia. Texas Feb 2021 proof.

The rich countries are not forking over the $100billion per year that was promised to the poor countries, despite the UN spending $5 billion to set up admin in South Korea. Not even green Merkel in Germany. Tuvalu keeps on pounding sand.

U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare

  • 06:43 PM ET 02/10/2015

Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.
Figueres is perhaps the perfect person for the job of transforming “the economic development model” because she’s really never seen it work. “If you look at Ms. Figueres’ Wikipedia page,” notes Cato economist Dan Mitchell: Making the world look at their right hand while they choke developed economies with their left.

Global security and stability could break down, with migration crises and food shortages bringing conflict and chaos, if countries fail to tackle greenhouse gas emissions, the UN’s top climate official has warned ahead of the Cop26 climate summit.

Food shortages? With record global harvest every year? Food shortages, if they exist, are caused by UN interference in the distribution of food, not by climate.

There are millions threatened with famine, even the US has rocketing food insecurity. Afghanistan faces a humanitarian disaster – and what happens? IMF and World Bank freeze their $9 billion claiming human rights, starving the very kids and women they claim to support?
None of this is caused by climate whatever, but by deliberate refusal to actively deploy.
So is the UN covering for this?
Meanwhile a US attempt to revoke the Security Council veto is blocked.

And this week China celebrates the 50 years return to the UN. Is this what drove Espinosa to such an outburst? Will she next invite Taiwan because Beijing will not go to FLOP26 ?
Meanwhile the Whitehouse says Biden’s outburst on Taiwan was a ‘gaffe’ – they must be falling over themselves!

I believe that China is playing politics and has no intention of causing WW3, even back in the 1400s China explored the rest of the world and worked out that trade was the most effective tool, military theatre is a useful threat.

There are crazies who think a limited nuke war is winnable give or take a few hundred million dead.
And even in Germany the defense minister has caused uproar over nuke comments.

“There are crazies who think a limited nuke war is winnable give or take a few hundred million dead.”

That would be the Chicoms. They are leaning towards thinking they can get away with a limited nuclear strike, thinking this will cause their opponent to withdraw.

The United States should state unequivically that there will be no limited nuclear war. If others attack the U.S. or its allies with nuclear weapons then they should expect a full response from the U.S. and its allies.

Don’t let the Chicoms think they can get away with a limited nuclear strike. This would be a dangerous temptation for weak-minded, and/or delusional people with totalitarian instincts.

It was a problem for the Roman Empire, natural climate and weather variations.

Now now everyone knows that a sudden and severe Climate Change did in fact occur in Rome with the sudden release of massive quantities of CO2 and particulates in 79 A.D., south of Rome near Naples

Espinoza’s threat was made at the Saudi Green Initiative Forum in Riyadh, where average high temperatures in the summer are 109F (43C) and there is no rain whatsoever. Yet Riyadh’s population has doubled to 7.3 million in the last 20 years thanks in large part to in-migration.

Been there. Their water comes from desalination of sea water. Since they have abundant oil and gas, mostly done via ‘flash pan’ evaporation rather than reverse osmosis. Without fossil fuels, Saudi Arabia would have remained all desert with roaming nomads.

They want chaos so bad, they should be careful of what they wish for.

The Bandar-log are getting more and more shrill which indicates to me that they are getting more and more desperate because they see that more and more people are beginning to doubt the veracity of their statements.
We need Mowgli, Kaa, Baloo and Bagheera to get stuck into them.

So if everywhere the weather is awful, why would anyone leave their country to migrate to a country with awful weather?

Patricia Spinosa’s remarks are all optatives & conditionals, ‘could, would’ etc. Nothing certain, definite or affirmative. Finding the words ‘may’, ‘might’, ‘could’, ‘would’ etc.in climate change literature is a sure sign of fear mongering nonsense. You can just as well say that an event ‘may’ or ‘could’ NOT happen.

Ya gotta call BS on the food shortage warnings…AGAIN! Data shows nothing but upward trends.

PLUS

There are bioreactor sugar and protein synthesizers that will soon be able to make abundant foodstuffs out of ABUNDANT raw materials…that we currently throw away.

PLUS

Researches at Chicago University have developed a Non-GMO Process that increases food production output of every edible plant studied so far…50% and they are just starting the refinement of the process.

The FOOD PROBLEM will be too much food to economically support workable agricultural commodity prices.

This reads like a Mob thug selling “protection”: “Dis is a nice country youse got here. It’d be a shame if anything happened to it, like a buncha refugee caravans.” Either adopt the CAGW legislative agenda, or be punished for failure to comply.

And they are punishing the west anyway – just to make sure we know who is in charge. Pay the UN-protection racket forever and still get random punishment beatings, or refuse payment and get immediate concentrated punishment beatings. If only there were an international organisation that could provide an honest judge brave enough to tackle the Mob. Unfortunately, the Mob runs the judiciary too.

Really off topic here, but if we want to talk chaos, Trudeau just named a radical environmental activist nutbar as Environment minister.
We now have a government fully staffed by radicals, watch as we head toward the cliff the europeans are currently diving off.

Unbelievable, but its so believable.

And by institutions they mean the UN.

Can’t have individual nations ignoring the UN can making all those UN officials unemployed.

Other than Zimbabwe, is there a single country that has not had all crop yields rise considerably over the last few decades?

In a recent interview [ shown on youtube ] Steve Koonin remarked that, deep in the body of AR6, there is a discussion on the possible results of a 3 – 5 deg C temperature rise. No hint of calamity, but a reduction of 4% in global GDP. It does make one wonder how long it will take before the alarmists and their cancel-culture allies find out and have AR6 cancelled.

I do not think that any agency spouts as much hogwash as the UN. If they were a private business and not propped up by politicians happy to squander tax payers’ money they would have gone bankrupt decades ago.

What they’re saying is that they will direct the globalist multi-nationals they control to starve any country that doesn’t comply, flood them with “refugees”, and possibly justify war against them. I don’t see this as a passive warning, but as a threat.

“if nations fail to follow the UN’s direction on climate change, they will face food shortages, conflict and a flood of climate refugees”

Corrected: if nations fail to follow the UN’s direction on climate change, they will face food shortages, conflict and a flood of climate energy refugees”

FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) is a well known sales tactic. It is so well known that it has lost it’s merit completely and no longer works.. Can someone please send this memo to stuck-in-the-past lying UN climate zealots who are desperately trying to ruin this world?

There are many people that actually voted for Democrats in 2020. FUD still works on enough people to be worth the effort.
