The only way of saving the world will be for industrial civilization to collapse. Maurice Strong

Climate shysters are putting out hysterical end-time scenarios. Don’t be fooled by a retarded child or dimwitted frightbats. The warming racket is evil.

The world must be “brave” in confronting the climate emergency, Greta Thunberg has said after the publication of a comprehensive new UN report.

Antonio Guterres says nations need to step up climate change action to avoid ‘catastrophic’ path

“We need a 45 per cent cut in emissions by 2030 to reach carbon neutrality by mid-century,” Mr Guterres said.

The world is on a “catastrophic pathway” toward a hotter future unless governments make more ambitious pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions, according to the United Nations (UN) chief.

More below the fold.

Either we reduce the world’s population voluntarily or nature will do this for us, but brutally

Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class…involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, ownership of motor vehicles, golf courses, small electric appliances, home and work place air-conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable…

What pleases me most is that sustainable development is on almost everybody’s agenda now.

Nigel Lawson, the former British Chancellor, says the warmists may try to scream him down but the facts speak even louder:

Global warming orthodoxy is not merely irrational. It is wicked.


A new UN report reviewing all the national commitments submitted by signatories of the Paris climate accord until July 30 found they would result in emissions rising nearly 16 per cent by 2030, compared with 2010 levels.

Scientists say the world must start to sharply curb emissions soon and add no more to the atmosphere by 2050 than can be absorbed if it is to meet the most ambitious goal of the Paris accord — capping global temperature rise at 1.5 degrees by 2100.

“The world is on a catastrophic pathway to 2.7 degrees [Celsius] of heating,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said.

Experts say the planet has already warmed by 1.1 degrees since pre-industrial times.

“We need a 45 per cent cut in emissions by 2030 to reach carbon neutrality by mid-century,” Mr Guterres said.

Some 113 countries including the United States and the European Union submitted updates to their emissions targets, also known as nationally determined contributions or NDCs, by the end of July.

Their pledges would result in a 12 per cent drop in emissions for those countries by the end of the decade — a figure that could more than double if some governments’ conditional pledges and assurances about aiming for carbon neutrality by 2050 are translated into action.

“That’s the positive side of the picture,” said UN climate chief Patricia Espinosa, whose office compiled the latest report.

“The other one is more sobering.”

Dozens of countries, including major emitters such as China, India and Saudi Arabia, failed to submit new pledges in time for the report.

Ms Espinosa called for leaders at next week’s annual UN gathering in New York to put forward stronger commitments in time for the global body’s upcoming climate summit in Glasgow.

“Leaders must engage in a frank discussion driven not just by the very legitimate desire to protect national interest, but also by the equally commanding goal of contributing to the welfare of humanity,” she said.

Ms Espinosa added that some public pledges, such as China’s aim to be carbon neutral by 2060, had not yet been formally submitted to the UN and so were not taken into account for the report.

An update, which would include any further commitments submitted by then, would be issued shortly before the Glasgow summit, she said.

Still, environmental campaigners and representatives of some vulnerable nations expressed their disappointment at the findings.

“We must ask what it will take for some major emitters to heed the scientific findings and deliver our world from a point of no return,” said Aubrey Webson of Antigua and Barbuda, who chairs the Association of Small Island States.

“The findings are clear – if we are to avoid amplification of our already devastating climate impacts, we need major emitters and all G20 countries to implement and stick to more ambitious NDCs and make strong commitments to net-zero emissions by 2050.”

Jennifer Morgan, the executive director of Greenpeace International, said meeting the Paris goal would only be possible with “courageous leadership and bold decisions”.

“Governments are letting vested interests call the climate shots, rather than serving the global community,” she said.

“Passing the buck to future generations has got to stop — we are living in the climate emergency now.”

More frightbat scenarios:

  • The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the world is on track to 2.7 degrees heating
  • He says there needs to be a 45 per cent cut in emissions by 2030 to reach carbon neutrality by the middle of the century
  • China’s aim to be carbon neutral was not taken into account because it has not submitted its plan to the UN
