UN Climate Report: Send Money, “Delay Means Death”

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

“a damning indictment of failed climate leadership”: UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres stops short of openly offering his services as global climate dictator, but I think we get the idea.

IPCC adaptation report ‘a damning indictment of failed global leadership on climate’ 

28 February 2022

UN scientists on Monday delivered a stark warning about the impact of climate change on people and the planet, saying that ecosystem collapse, species extinction, deadly heatwaves and floods are among the “unavoidable multiple climate hazards” the world will face over the next two decades due to global warming,  

“This report is a dire warning about the consequences of inaction,” said Hoesung Lee, Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

“It shows that climate change is a grave and mounting threat to our wellbeing and a healthy planet. Our actions today will shape how people adapt and nature responds to increasing climate risks,” he said, adding: “Half measures are no longer an option.”

UN Secretary-General António Guterres called the first report, issued last August, a “code red for humanity”, and said that “If we combine forces now, we can avert climate catastrophe.”

‘Clobbered by climate change’

His take on the latest report is equally stark: he laments that the evidence detailed by IPCC is unlike anything he has ever seen, calling it an “atlas of human suffering and a damning indictment of failed climate leadership.”

Criminal abdication of leadership

Mr. Guterres said the world’s biggest polluters are guilty of arson of our only home.

In the face of such dire evidence, it is essential to meet the goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, and the science shows that will require the world to cut emissions by 45 percent by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

“But according to current commitments, global emissions are set to increase almost 14 per cent over the current decade. That spells catastrophe. It will destroy any chance of keeping 1.5 alive,” said the UN chief.

One of the report’s core truths is that coal and other fossil fuels are choking humanity, the Secretary-General explained, calling on all G20 governments to live up to their agreements to stop funding coal abroad, and the must now urgently do the same at home and dismantle their coal fleets.

Adaptation saves lives

The second core finding from he IPCC report is slightly better news: investments in adaptation work.

“As climate impacts worsen – and they will – scaling up investments will be essential for survival. Adaptation and mitigation must be pursued with equal force and urgency. That’s why I have been pushing to get to 50 per cent of all climate finance for adaptation,” Mr. Guterres explained.

Noting that the Glasgow commitment on adaptation funding is clearly not enough to meet the challenges faced by nations on the frontlines of the climate crisis he said that he is also pressing to remove the obstacles that prevent small island states and least developed countries from getting the finance they desperately need to save lives and livelihoods.

“We need new eligibility systems to deal with this new reality. Delay means death,” he said.

The full report is available here. Unsurprisingly even the executive summary mentions “distributive justice” – the imposition of global communism to defeat the carbon hobgoblin. I think the world has had enough of remote dictators messing up everyone’s lives.

The report species loss predictions in my opinion are absurd. Up to 14% species loss at 1.5C, 29% at 3C. Mild positive temperature excursions in past epochs never caused such losses. The Roman and Medieval warming were periods of abundance. Viking artefacts from the Medieval warm period are still being released today, by the glaciers which covered them during the Little Ice Age. In my opinion this is compelling evidence that the relatively recent past was at least as warm as today, if not warmer.

Of course, the losses mostly occur somewhere else. You can’t see it, you have to take their word for it.

Food security features heavily. Apparently after decades of successful adaption and rising yields, our farmers will suddenly forget how to farm. Or maybe the plan is to deny them nitrate fertiliser (nitrous oxides are potent greenhouse gasses), then blame falling yields on climate change.

Sadly this UN fantasy / power grab will not be the last. But the predictions of this report are so dire, imminent and ridiculous, future historians will surely mark this as the year the United Nations jumped the shark on climate change.

I recently wrote to the Oz PM with a reference to the CSIRO (one of his ‘experts’) stating that the Southern hemisphere is a carbon sink.

The stock response was to disagree with me and to tell me of all the good things they are doing to meet the Oz CO2 reduction commitments.

No doubt my letter was turned around by the PM’s gate-keepers as it was 99% identical to another response from 6 months previously on a totally different point regarding the farce of CAGW.

Aw c’mon man. Antonio Porky Pig and the UN are critical to the survival of humanity. Look at all they are doing to keep the peace. And putting the focus on what is vitally important compared to a mere nuclear conflict—less than a degree of beneficial warming must be stopped at any cost. We can’t let ourselves be distracted by raving madmen threatening nuclear holocaust when in another 100 years Scotland could become suitable for human habitation.

As you acutely observed, Antonio Porky Pig (APP) is suffering from sugar poisoning.

Therein lies not only his problem but what is now a worldwide problem. Sugar consumption is responsible for 80% plus of all deaths – directly or indirectly.

APP is thus playing to his audience = vast numbers of people who are similarly affected, mentally as well as physically by their ‘addiction’

I put that in quotes because yes, sugar is addictive BUT, the human animal is not intrinsically an addict.
Its because there is now, effectively, nothing else to eat but sugar

And all the sugar consumers/addicts are seriously and chronically depressed – they are lapping up this Climate Shyte like cats lapping up cream

Never mind doing a finger-prick test for your pre-diabetes – take a cognitive skill test for a more accurate (long term) test result.
Go read the comments section at any BBC News climate story (where they allow comments) to see the dementia writ large

Now there is something which is genuinely depressing (it occasions ‘sadness’) because:

  • Depressed people become paranoid = irrationally fearful
  • Paranoid people panic – they do things that hurt themselves and others close by them

The responses of both Gojo Brandon and BoJo Johnson to the Covid scare beautifully exemplifies – they went on wild spending sprees and trashed their economies

Exactly what we see here with APP – throw money at a problem, any problem real or imagined, to make it go away.
Trouble is and even as The Victorians in England discovered, handing out free money (charity) only creates a demand for more free money and charity.

Here in The West, we are in great danger of doing something sooooo very amazingly dumb as to extinguish ourselves

i.e. Information is not = Knowledge

By example, it is the primary fault with the science output of Jim (Captain Minutia) Steele
Knowing where or when does not tell much about how or especially, why

This is what happens when the World Economic Forum members have taken over all the major positions in the UN. Evil.

In September 2019, more than 400 civil society organizations and 40 international networks heavily criticised a partnership agreement between WEF and the United Nations and called on the UN Secretary-General to end it.[142]They see such an agreement as a “disturbing corporate capture of the UN, which moved the world dangerously towards a privatised global governance”.

The more shrill IPCC gets, the easier it is to falsify their nonsense. The old species extinctions thing has been around since AR4WG2. Despite all the fancy misleading graphics, the IPCC claims were based on exactly one paper that used a flawed methodology, a flawed ‘model’, and a flawed key constant to produce very flawed and easily falsified alarm. Essay ‘No Bodies’ in ebook Blowing Smoke. They were so bad, were partly walked back in AR5.

  1. if we did anything IPPC says it would actually stop the temperature rising
  2. that an increase in temperature (natural?) would cause environmental damage.

Suskind identified this carry-on precisely decades ago : see ‘reality-based community,’:

That’s not the way the world really works anymore … We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do’

Now look at Mann, IPCC, et al. They will create new realities and you will be left to study what they do – is that the deal?

This imperial Rules-Based-Order is now finished – welcome to the Multipolar Law-Based-Order.

We are not here to study imperial actor’s arbitrary realities, are we?

And Africa also had to fight the HIV/AIDs disaster over the last 50 years as well. AGAIN look up the data yourselves and wake up.
Today deaths from extreme weather events have dropped by 95% + over the last 100 years. Pop then just 1.7 bn and today 7.8 bn. When will they wake up?

There is no correlation whatsoever between “largest” and “most detailed”.

As to issuing any report that is 3,675 pages long, I appeal to the reasoning of Blaise Pascal back in year 1657:
“I have only made this letter longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter.”

“UN Secretary-General António Guterres called the first report, issued last August, a “code red for humanity”, and said that “If we combine forces now, we can avert climate catastrophe.”

With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, it has become quite apparent to me that Vladimir Putin and the Russian government now have something in common with the UN and the IPCC. They both need to put out propaganda (a.k.a. BS or garbage) in order to sell the world a false bill of goods and to justify themselves and their narratives.

If honesty, truth and sound science are becoming endangered concepts in the world today, the U.N. and the governments of the world are major players in their demise. The Orwellian Big Brothers of the real world we live in today have the Internet and satellite communications to spread their lies far and wide. My only hope is that there are enough reasonably intelligent people in the world to see through it all.

Andy,

I am not entirely sure what you mean by “removal of Ukrainian independence?”. If you are referring to the rumblings of Ukraine joining NATO and its consequences, I remind you that NATO has always said that each nation in the world has the right to determine its own future and fate. If and when it happens, Ukraine’s joining of NATO will be because of its own choosing.

Ukraine has been internationally recognized as a sovereign and independent nation since it declared independence from the USSR in 1991. While I recognize that the Ukrainians are close ethnic kin to the Russians, this does not give Putin (or anyone else) any rights to lay claim to power and control in Ukraine. Any outside nation attempting to do so is violating Ukraine’s status as a sovereign nation. The war violates international law.

I do not know if any promises were made by the U.S. or NATO to Russia and Putin regarding Ukraine’s future, but it does not change Ukraine’s status as a sovereign and independent nation.

Putin’s reckless adventure into Ukraine has caused the International Criminal Court to look into the possibility that war crimes may have been committed. Whether Putin and his generals will ever be charged and brought to justice remains to be seen. I am not optimistic.

At any rate, Putin’s actions and behavior remind me of Hitler. History does repeat itself.

Not one detailed global temperature graph of monthly temperature data in the whole report.

In fact try for yourself to find a detailed monthly global temperature graph from any of the data sets except UAH, you won’t find one. They are hiding the detail.

You can find the data graphed on a privately funded climate4you GlobalTemperatures, these are graphs of each global temperature data set.

All the global temperature data sets show the same thing.

There is a very short period of net or significant warming followed by a long temperature hiatus. The planet warmed in 1998 then did not warm again until the end of 2015 where the planet warmed for 6 months and now the planet is back into a global warming hiatus.

These short periods of net warming are natural events caused by ENSO. A very strong el nino is powerful enough to decrease global cover which allows sunlight (short wave radiation) to increase and warm the planet. This is a complex process that involves el nino and la nina.

The planet will not have significant net warming unless there is another very strong el nino and there is no guarantee that another very strong el nino will occur again any time soon. And the North Atlantic Decadal Oscillation is transitioning into its cooling phase.

I live in Australia near Orange NSW. We cop the full force of ENSO. A natural system strong enough to change the global temperature.

2 summers ago we were experiencing 40c heat and bush fires, this summer it has been cold and floods. This summer I have regularly had my wood stove burning because it has 8 to 10 degrees Celsius below average.

Climate Driver Update (bom.gov.au) Go to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology website and see what they say the climate drivers are, Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean and tropics. Yet the media constantly blame CO2.

The IPCC are deceitful.

This is a class action waiting to happen.

Neil, those temperature spikes from El Niños are actually planetary cooling events. The warm water, that was trapped in the Pacific warm pool, sloshes back across the pacific, and warms the atmosphere as the heat passes through, on its way to deep space.

Yes, la nina and el nino working together to cause the global temperature spikes. A strong la nina or a number of moderate la ninas charge up the western pacific with water, warmed by sunlight and this gives the following el nino the energy to become a very strong el nino. All driven by changes in cloud cover causing increases in sunlight, all natural.

The data may show the trend but the energy has to come from somewhere and where is very much in controversy

“. . . the energy has to come from somewhere and where is very much in controversy”

Sadly, that is true for some people. On the other hand, the overwhelming percentage of educated people know, without doubt or controversy, that the Sun provides over 99.95% of the energy that the Earth’s surface receives on an annual basis (smoothing out daily/monthly changes in albedo and insolation).

N.B.: Earth’s interior contributes heat to its surface at a rate of about 0.05 watts per square meter (when compared to areal-averaged incoming solar radiation of about 341.3 watts per square meter, this is equivalent to about .015% of the total). Even smaller energy fluxes are contributed by the solar wind, starlight, cosmic rays, and meteors/cosmic dust falling onto Earth’s atmosphere.

I think we need to start calling this “a UN disinformation campaign”.

I’ll gladly send them my money – if in ten years they aren’t able to control the climate with the money I sent, they must repay me my money plus 5% APR + the rate of CPI compounded daily.

Like Kofi Annan and his son and the Oil for Food program in Iraq, massive corruption and theft, had a fire of the evidence and when investigators said there was not enough evidence to convict Annan announced they had been found innocent.

Thats just how it works.

“he laments that the evidence detailed by IPCC is unlike anything he has ever seen”

Well I totally agree with him.

UN has done so well with preventing military adventurerism, so clearly they are the best people to go to for all other problems.

East coast of Australia must be leading the climate change race?

Major bushfires late 2019 to early 2020 followed by major floods in 2020.

Now early in 2022 floods major natural disaster areas with much more rainfall predicted.

Missed out on the warming bit.

45% by 2030 and net-zero by 2050? That’s so divorced from reality it’s absolutely laughable.

I’ll take this seriously when they show a complete breakdown of every project required, with a timeline for completion and cost estimate (which they would underestimate).

Whatever happened to the days where if someone claimed they could control the average temperature of the world they would have been advised to see a psychiatrist? Outside of cloud seeding (which has had some modest success), controlling the weather is the provenance of Hollywood movies and delusional people.

UN scientists on Monday delivered a stark warning about the impact of climate change on people and the planet, saying that ecosystem collapse, species extinction, deadly heatwaves and floods are among the “unavoidable multiple climate hazards” the world will face over the next two decades due to global warming”

That message has been stated by alarmists for over thirty years. Even with their moving the goal posts two decades further out, the goals are still absurd.

This reenforces my belief that the bias and false reporting by the mainstream media must be addressed. It is one of our biggest problem.

“In the face of such dire evidence, it is essential to meet the goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, and the science shows that will require the world to cut emissions by 45 percent by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
But according to current commitments, global emissions are set to increase almost 14 per cent over the current decade. That spells catastrophe. It will destroy any chance of keeping 1.5 alive,” said the UN chief.
Does that mean that COPs will become defunct by 2030? By then the world will be divided into two camps. One will see that catastrophe cannot be diverted because emissions will not be cut at all, never mind by 45 per cent. The other will just carry on as usual because they know that catastrophe was never threatened in the first place.
Meanwhile, there is a real crisis happening here and now, not in decades to come, and people are being killed. And what is the United Nations doing about it?

Does anyone know who this Hoesung Lee is? I have never heard of him.
Is it/he/she from China by any chance?
What happened to Patch?
Is he still writing porn?
Mind you as this is global warming porn perhaps he had an input?
