UN releases frantic call to cease new fossil fuel production, fast track ‘climate action’ to stop ‘time bomb’

The United Nations has published yet another whacked apocalyptic doomsday report on climate change, screaming that we are at the point of no return if we don’t ditch fossil fuels immediately and embrace green energy, calling it a “survival guide for humanity.”

The report was released on Monday and was issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The alarmist document argues that “unsustainable energy and land use” has caused the world to warm 1.1 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, which is close to their contended 1.5-degree emergency threshold.

“The rate of temperature rise in the last half-century is the highest in 2,000 years,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres proclaimed in a video message that went out on Monday. “Concentrations of carbon dioxide are at their highest in at least 2 million years. The climate time bomb is ticking. But today’s IPCC report is a how-to guide to defuse the climate time bomb. It is a survival guide for humanity.”

“As it shows, the 1.5-degree limit is achievable. But it will take a quantum leap in climate action,” he commented. “This report is a clarion call to massively fast-track climate efforts by every country and every sector and on every time frame. In short, our world needs climate action on all fronts, everything, everywhere, all at once.”

The report went right off the edge of hysteria, asserting that every additional increment of warming that occurs will result in “rapidly escalating hazards” for all of humanity.

The hyped rhetoric warned that climate change will result in more intense heatwaves, heavier rainfall, and other extreme risks to human health and ecosystems. It also spoke of food shortages and more pandemics caused by global warming.

“Mainstreaming effective and equitable climate action will not only reduce losses and damages for nature and people, it will also provide wider benefits,” IPCC Chair Hoesung Lee declared in a statement. “This Synthesis Report underscores the urgency of taking more ambitious action and shows that, if we act now, we can still secure a liveable sustainable future for all.”

“Transformational changes are more likely to succeed where there is trust, where everyone works together to [prioritize] risk reduction, and where benefits and burdens are shared equitably,” Lee stated, continuing the hyperbole. “We live in a diverse world in which everyone has different responsibilities and different opportunities to bring about change. Some can do a lot while others will need support to help them manage the change.”

The report naturally calls for a massive investment in clean energy and the immediate cessation of using fossil fuels across the world. The UN also urged Western nations to boost spending on climate investments. It harkens back to White House climate envoy John Kerry calling for a plan last November to develop a system where developing nations can earn “carbon credits” by cutting fossil fuel emissions. That plan is still floating out there evidently.

At that same meeting last November, nations committed to billions of dollars worth of climate financing for developing countries and called on private investors to boost climate financing.

It would seem that the UN and leftists want to ditch fossil fuels in favor of clean energy before they actually have it in place which would be catastrophic. Coal, oil, and natural gas are the primary sources of energy on the planet, according to the latest International Energy Agency data as reported by Fox News. The three sources of energy account for nearly 70% of all global energy.

“Every country must be part of the solution,” Guterres insisted on Monday. “Demanding others move first only ensures humanity comes last. The ‘Acceleration Agenda’ calls for a number of other actions. Specifically, no new coal and the phasing out of coal by 2030 in OECD countries and 2040 in all other countries; ending all international public and private funding of coal.”

“Ceasing all licensing or funding of new oil and gas – consistent with the findings of the International Energy Agency,” he added. “Stopping any expansion of existing oil and gas reserves; shifting subsidies from fossil fuels to a just energy transition; establishing a global phasedown of existing oil and gas production compatible with the 2050 global net-zero target.”

“This report shows that averting a climate catastrophe is still within our reach, but only if world leaders swiftly transition to a 100% clean economy worldwide,” said Anne Christianson, director for International Climate at the leftist Center for American Progress, according to the Washington Times. “If we fail to act now, the health and safety of communities around the world is in doubt.”
