“This is madness”: UN Secretary General Whining About Abandoned Climate Goals

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

As the UN plan to assume leadership of the world’s climate response unravels before his eyes, and the world focusses on real problems, UN Secretary General António Guterres is urging people to remember the fake climate crisis.

UN chief warns against ‘sleepwalking to climate catastrophe’

21 March 2022 Climate and Environment

The goal to limit future warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, highlighted in the Paris Agreement on climate change, and driven home in last November’s COP26, gathering in Glasgow, is now on “life support” and “in intensive care,” the UN chief told the Economist Sustainability Summit on Monday.   

Speaking via video link, Secretary-General António Guterres highlighted some of the progress made at COP 26 last year but pointing to “the enormous emissions gap” conceded that “the main problem was not solved – it was not even properly addressed.”  

Keeping 1.5 alive requires a 45 per cent reduction in global emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by mid-century”, he said, highlighting how Russia’s invasion of Ukraine threatened to become a huge setback for the concerted effort to speed up climate action.  

Last year alone, global energy-related CO2 emissions grew by six per cent “to their highest levels in history,” Mr. Guterres said, as coal emissions surged “to record highs.”  

With the planet warming by as much as 1.2 degrees, and where climate disasters have forced 30 million to flee their homes, Mr. Guterres warned: “We are sleepwalking to climate catastrophe.”  

If we do not want to “kiss 1.5 goodbye…we need to go to the source – the G20”(group of leading industrialized nations), the UN chief said.  

“We can’t point fingers while the planet burns,” said the Organization head. 

As major economies pursue a so-called “all-of-the-above” strategy to replace Russian fossil fuels, short-term measures might create long-term fossil fuel dependence and close the 1.5 degrees window, he warned.  

Countries could become so consumed by the immediate fossil fuel supply gap that they neglect or knee-cap policies to cut fossil fuel use,” Mr. Guterres insisted. “This is madness.” 

Developed countries, multilateral development banks, private financial institutions and companies with the technical know-how – all need to join forces…to deliver support at scale and with speed to coal-intensive economies”, he added.

The UN’s continued adherence to the climate faith in my opinion simply demonstrates how out of touch they are with the needs of the people they claim to serve. Even green Germany has thrown climate purity overboard in the face of the Ukraine crisis. But the UN is so detached from ordinary people, they simply don’t care. The message of necessity has yet to penetrate.

One of the points of interest for me is how politicians who have pushed or even just quietly supported climate hoax will try to reposition themselves and explain the backflip to their constituents, particularly the huge amount of taxpayer’s monies squandered on stupid expenditure such as the transition to renewable (unreliable and intermittent) energy, so called.

Well, no they can’t pretend it never happened. They can pretend Global Cooling really didn’t happen because not much was ever actually done about it. Not so for climate change. They can’t deny the forests of wind mills and countless square miles of solar farms or the existence of the IPCC or the billions trillions spent.

But the Climate Change juggernaut isn’t on track to fall apart any time soon. But, not if but when, that happy moment arrives:

They will just try to move on and ignore it. And that works sometimes, after all, they’ve been successfully ignoring the growing population polar bears for years now. The millennials that chose climate change as a career path and became bureaucrats will lose their funding. Some will just retire and some will have to be voted out.

But over the short term, when Russia successfully annexes Ukraine, climate change will be back on the front burner. It ain’t going away. It is too big to fail.

The UN, as far as I am concerned – don’t want anyone else dragged down with me – & it always has been a lefty organisation seeking a one world guvment, un-elected, un-democratic (they all think, eat & breath the same way) organisation, Socialism by the back door. Can’t wait for the next globul scary story……………..where are you ET??? PS it’s glorious sunshine here in South-West UK, confirmation beyond doubt globul warming is here to stay, at least until the Autumn/Fall, when it starts to get cooler!!! For some reason we seem to have missed the UK Wet-Office’s chilling weather although I gather it’s still waiting out there when the sun stops shining & at the same time we’re in for a sunny warm spell!!!!

Germany is begging Dubai to sell liquid natural gas, LNG, at spot prices of about $30 to $40/million Btu under a long-term contract, but refuses to buy Russian pipeline gas at $6/million Btu under a long-term contract, because the US told Germany it would not be selling Mercedes, Audie, Porsche, and BMW cars in the US.

This is called hardball and Germany blinked.

I do not have the link to President Trump’s address to the United Nations in New York but I did view it at the time, shortly afterwards, and remember his not so subtle criticism and suggestion for a return to the original charter of objectives. He said that the UN has expanded into too many areas and organisations and must stop interfering in the internal affairs (sovereignty) of member nations. And that he had already discussed these points with UN leaders.

Soon after the WW2 when the UN was established a plan was created to encourage member nations to enter into treaties and agreements with the UN that could be used to get around each nation’s constitution and constitutional laws by compliant governments that would then create legislation to enforce each one and regulations. UN Agenda 21 created around 1990 is an example, titled Sustainability but effectively undermining economic prosperity by banning activities in National Parks created from public forests such as building dams, logging, mining and in offshore Marine Parks banning or restricting commercial fishing activities.

The UN globalist left objective to become a “world parliament” and therefore no surprise now that the Secretary General is not happy as member nations turn away to refocus on nation building or recovery.

Major correction!!! A Parliament is a discussion forum for genuine discussion of a variety of issues, & the membership is or at least should be made up of democratically elected representatives, to paraphrase a former Colonist, to govern by & for the people!!! The UN is not a parliament for open discussion & a genuine exchange of ideas, etc. It is simply a totalitarian dictatorship to tell the World how it should work & operate, & it MUST comply, or to use the Dalek’s parlance, MUST OBEY!!! It is the very end of democracy, because ONLY the wealthy ruling intellectual elites know what is good for us all, & that “good” is enriching the wealthy ruling intellectual elites beyond the belief of ordinary hard working people & at the expense of hard working people, nothing has ever really changed despite valiant efforts by some, especially you peeps in the Virginian Colonies, gosh sure wish I’d emigrated there when I had the opportunity years back!!!

Maurice Strong who organized the first U.N.

Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?”

A little research into Strong’s many honorary degrees, business and political appointments, followed by his “where’s-the-money” controversies when some people were shorted on their “fair share”, help you realize that Strong was probably the greatest “confidence man” ever. He could turn on the tap of socialist sympathist, Marxist philosopher, pragmatic businessman, concerned ecologist, man-on-a-mission-to-save-the-world-or-your-company…comparatively, Frank Abagnale wouldn’t be allowed to carry Strong’s luggage.
He was so good at it, that his motivation is still a matter of debate…but his arc from farm boy to billionaire seems to be the biggest hint.

one MUST remember UN Secretary General Guterres’s background from his native Portugal to know from where he speaks.

Guterres’s political career began in 1974, when he became a member of the [Portuguese] Socialist Party.”
Guterres served as secretary-general of the Socialist Party from 1992 to 2002.”
”He served as president of the Socialist International from 1999 to 2005”

He’s a life long, hard core socialist. Everything he does is to further the Global Socialism cause. Just like Jesuit Pope in the Vatican. Bernie Sanders is a small-time piker compared to Guterres.

The climate scam is the global socialist’s Trojan Horse. A political power grab hidden behind bad science to plunder a free and prosperous middle class to be forced into servitude to the state.

Guterres’s political career began in 1974, when he became a member of the Socialist Party. In 1992 Guterres became secretary-general of the Socialist Party. He was also selected as one of the 25 vice presidents of the Socialist International in September 1992.

Socialism is intellectualism for stupid people.

In Divinity School Al Gore got through the ‘Shamans shamin’ the herd for control’ lessons, then dropped out.
We’ll not only get, eat, the slavery of Neo-Feudalism but the superstition for sauce, too.

“We need to destroy the village in order to save it”.

This is the core problem with ‘issues’ like Climate Change(tm). The principle of the idea appeals to people. If you generalise the question down to something like ‘Do you want a nice place for your children to live in 20 or 30 years down the track?’ then most people are going to say ‘yes’.

However if you say do you want to work harder with a gun in your back for a bowl of rice a day for the next 19 years in order to gain this magical ‘nice place’ then the question becomes fuzzy.

Society is what we live in in the here and now. When people say ‘we are doing this to protect our society’ (cough – Covid restrictions – cough) it always has to be compared with what parts of ‘society’ are we being forced to surrender just to ensure we have ‘society’ in the future.

Put the argument another way. When you are comfortable in your life small furry animals are cute. When you are living on the edge small furry animals are food for your children.

If you want to protect small furry animals, protect your economy first.

Keeping 1.5 alive requires a 45 per cent reduction in global emissions by 2030″ The ability of people to delude themselves is extraordinary.
