UN Chief Wants Us To Stop Bat Soup Virus And Climate Crisis Or Something

U.N. head Antonio Guterres is given a perch at the NY Times, a paper which supports climate action but fails to understand what the Cult of Climastrology policies will do to their own operations, skyrocketing their operating costs and making it too expensive to gather and disseminate the news, especially the dead tree edition

A Time to Save the Sick and Rescue the Planet

The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest test the world has faced since World War II. There is a natural tendency in the face of crisis to take care of one’s own first. But true leadership understands that there are times to think big and more generously. Such thinking was behind the Marshall Plan and the formation of the United Nations after World War II. This is also such a moment. We must work together as societies and as an international community to save lives, ease suffering and lessen the shattering economic and social consequences of Covid-19.

Well, we did have that Cold War thing. And Red China wiping out tens of millions. The killing fields of Cambodia.

The impact of the coronavirus is immediate and dreadful. We must act now and we must act together. Just as we must act together to address another urgent global emergency that we must not lose sight of — climate change. Last week, the World Meteorological Organization released data showing that temperatures have already increased 1.1 degrees centigrade above preindustrial levels. The world is on track for devastating climate disruption from which no one can self-isolate.

1.1C, also known as 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit, since 1850 really is nothing, which is why they say “preindustrial.” Putting a number with it makes people go “meh.”

Addressing climate change and Covid-19 simultaneously and at enough scale requires a response stronger than any seen before to safeguard lives and livelihoods. A recovery from the coronavirus crisis must not take us just back to where we were last summer. It is an opportunity to build more sustainable and inclusive economies and societies — a more resilient and prosperous world. Recently the International Renewable Energy Agency released data showing that transforming energy systems could boost global G.D.P. by $98 trillion by 2050, delivering 2.4 percent more G.D.P. growth than current plans. Boosting investments in renewable energy alone would add 42 million jobs globally, create health care savings eight times the cost of the investment, and prevent a future crisis.

Never let a good crisis, people getting sick, people dying, people not working, wondering where their next meal comes from, do they get booted from their home or apartment, lose their car, etc, go to waste, right? Anyhow, he has 6 policy ideas

  • First: As we spend trillions to recover from Covid-19, we must deliver new jobs and businesses through a clean, green transition. Investments must accelerate the decarbonization of all aspects of our economy. (what’s this we? The UN gets all its money from others)
  • Second: Where taxpayers’ money rescues businesses, it must be creating green jobs and sustainable and inclusive growth. It must not be bailing out outdated polluting, carbon-intensive industries. (when will the UN stop using fossil fuels for its own operations?)
  • Third: Fiscal firepower must shift economies from gray to green, making societies and people more resilient through a transition that is fair to all and leaves no one behind. (cultist word salad, where they want Government to fully control economies)
  • Fourth: Looking forward, public funds should invest in the future, by flowing to sustainable sectors and projects that help the environment and climate. Fossil fuel subsidies must end and polluters must pay for their pollution. (again, when does the UN, including Guterres, stop using fossil fuels?)
  • Fifth: The global financial system, when it shapes policy and infrastructure, must take risks and opportunities related to climate into account. Investors cannot continue to ignore the price our planet pays for unsustainable growth. (meaning that Government must take over the entire financial sector)
  • Sixth: To resolve both emergencies, we must work together as an international community. Like the coronavirus, greenhouse gases respect no boundaries. Isolation is a trap. No country can succeed alone. (which is why the UN puts human rights abusers, like China and Iran, on the Human Rights Council

    from the cited article: * … temperatures have already increased 1.1 degrees centigrade above preindustrial levels.*

    Teach responds: 1.1C, also known as 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit, since 1850 really is nothing, which is why they say “preindustrial.” Putting a number with it makes people go “meh.”

    Two points: First, 1.1 degrees centigrade is equal to 2.0 degrees Fahrenheit, not 1.5 as Teach claims. Second, 1.1 degrees centigrade IS a number, and 1.1 degrees centigrade since 1850 is a significant and rapid increase in the global temperature, importantly, with no reason to expect the warming to stop.

    Do you really believe your readers don’t understand what ‘pre-industrial’ means?

    Here’s a plot of atmospheric CO2 since pre-industrial times.

      Hide the decline. This was what the Russian scientists tried to warn MANN when he created the Hockey stick. The tree ring data he used from BRIFA’s research was flawed and he had cherry picked the data to create his Hockey stick curve in rising temperatures.

      How much are these scientists being paid by CHINA to destroy the wests ability to power its economy?

        Komrade Klem,

        The leaked GOP memo on how GOPhers and their Komrades should frame the debate shows the strategy is China, China, China! LOL.

        But you knew that. As trump cozies up to Putin once again, the GOP is trying to make lemonade out of the pandemic by blaming China, China, China! and linking VP Biden and family to China, China, China!

        Are you paid by the RNC, the campaign or Russia?

          Well comrade 50 center. Brifa’s tree ring data came from the URALS.

          Ural Mountains, also called the Urals, Russian Uralskie Gory or Ural, mountain range forming a rugged spine in west-central Russia and the major part of the traditional physiographic boundary between Europe and

          So naturally the Russians would be involved in Brifa’s tree ring data.

          However I see that your deflection is China bad but RUSSIA< RUSSIA< RUSSIA which has already been debunked.

          You are the sleaziest commentor I have run across on the internet in a long time.

          China bad buh, buh, buh but RUSSIA. You need to understand one thing. CHINA JOE is in bed with CHINA we get that. But my problem with China is they are an insideous threat to more than just the USA.

          That is not tolerable. For some reason you don’t seem to care that nation after nation is becoming satellite states to China as long as somehow you get power in the USA and can then dictate to people your far bastardly ideology.

          Because progressives hate China and they hate biden and they hate the MSM, but are the ones who started the Hash Tag movement in this country. They hate wars, they hate wall street and they hate Corporate America.

          Well guess what. Biden and Obama were owned by corporate America. The DNC got together and crushed Bernie Sanders and the progressive left is once again livid with the DNC.

          So you can keep throwing out your disjointed half progressive half Wall Street narrative but in reality, even the progressive left calls you a LIAR when you keep spouting the RUSSIA Narrative.

          In short. You are so 50 center as to be unaware of the intricacies of the party you pretend to represent.

        In case you don’t care to read, here’s the CliffsNotes version of China, China, China!

        Of course, Komrade Klem had already seen this.

        SHORT VERSION

        ● China caused this pandemic by covering it up, lying, and hoarding the world’s supply of medical equipment.

        ○ China is an adversary that has stolen millions of American jobs, sent fentanyl to the United States, and they send religious minorities to concentration camps.

        ● My opponent is soft on China, fails to stand up to the Chinese Communist Party, and can’t be trusted to take them on.

        ● I will stand up to China, bring our manufacturing jobs back home, and push for sanctions on China for its role in spreading this pandemic.

        • Kye says:

          Exactly which of your bullet points do you think is wrong and why? Since Klem has once again triggered you as a Red Chinese operative your disingenuous attempt to draw attention to Russia, Russia, Russia once again is both foolish and childish. The phony Russia affair has long lost it’s Fake News glitter and no attempt to revive it will work. Except of course the TRIALS, CONVICTIONS and INCARCERATIONS of the traitorous commie ops within our own Deep State of quislings comes to pass. Soon, Elwood. Very, very soon.

          Has Rapin’ Joe Hiden’ emerged long enough yet to see his shadow? You realize that would mean four more years of Trump, don’t you? Haahahaha

          Trump 2020 and Trump Jr 2024 Because commies just won’t do.

        • formwiz says:

          All of which is true.

          Your problem?

          Oh, that’s right, you’re a Commie.

  2. Kye says:

    BTW Elwood, do you still “believe all women”? Hahahahaha. Nah, only women who accuse Republicans. How honest of you. Your entire party is full of liars and hypocrites.
    All ya have left is that burning hate for Trump, America, God and Caucasians. That should get you through the next election. Nothing like trying to sell a senile candidate and a passe party on hate alone. That should come out well for ya. Hahahahaha.

    Trump Jr. 2024 Since 2020 is already in the bag.
