The UN head of
climate change who engineered the
Paris Climate Deal,
Christiana Figueres has said plainly that their goal
is to replace Capitalism and Free Enterprise with
in a 2015 press conference,
the first time in the history of mankind that we
are setting ourselves the task of intentionally,
within a defined period of time to change the
economic development model that has been
reigning for at least 150 years, since the
Here's a United
Nations climate report that environmentalists probably don't
want anybody to read.
It says that even if
every country abides by the grand promises they made last year in
Paris to reduce greenhouse gases, the planet would still be
Obama hitched America to the
Paris accords in 2016, he declared that it was,
"the moment that we
finally decided to save our planet."
Trump pulled out of the deal this year, he was
berated by legions of environmentalists for killing it.
But it turns out that the Paris accord was little more than a sham
that will do nothing to "save the planet."
According to the latest annual UN report on the "emissions gap," the
Paris agreement will provide only a third of the cuts in greenhouse
gas that environmentalists claim is needed to prevent
If every country involved
in those accords abides by their pledges between now and 2030 -
which is a dubious proposition - temperatures will still rise by 3
degrees C by 2100.
The goal of the Paris
agreement was to keep the global temperature increase to under 2
Eric Solheim, head of the U.N. Environment Program, which
produces the annual report, said this week that,
"One year after the
Paris Agreement entered into force, we still find ourselves in a
situation where we are not doing nearly enough to save hundreds
of millions of people from a miserable future.
private sector and civil society must bridge this
catastrophic climate gap."
The report says unless
global greenhouse gas emissions peak before 2020, the CO2
levels will be way above the goal set for 2030, which, it goes on,
will make it,
that the goal of holding global warming to well below 2 degrees
C can still be reached."
Not to worry. The UN
claims that closing this gap will be easy enough, if nations set
their collective minds to it.
But this is a fantasy...
The list of what would
need to be done by 2020 - a little over two years from now -
renewable energy's share to 30%
cars to 15% of new car sales, up from less than 1% today
travel CO2 emissions by 20%
Coming up with $1
trillion for "climate action"
coal-fired power plants would have to be phased out
worldwide, starting now
According to the report,
"phasing out coal
consumption… is an indispensable condition for achieving
international climate change targets."
That means putting a halt
to any new coal plants while starting to phase out the ones
currently in use.
Good luck with that. There are currently 273 gigawatts of coal
capacity under construction around the world, and another 570
gigawatts in the pipeline, the UN says.
That would represent a
42% increase in global energy production from coal.
Does anyone really
think developing countries who need coal as a cheap source of
fuel to grow their economies will suddenly call it quits?
So, does this mean the planet is doomed?
As we have noted in this
space many times, all those forecasts of global catastrophe
are based on computer models that have been unreliable predictors of
warming. And all of the horror stories assume the worst.
What the report does make clear, however, is that all the posturing
by government leaders in Paris was just that. Posturing...
None of these countries
intended to take the drastic and economically catastrophic steps
environmentalist claim are needed to prevent a climate change
As such, Trump was right
to stop pretending.
Whether you believe in climate change or not, the Paris climate
accord amounted to nothing, or pretty close to it.
Even the UN (United
Nations) admits that now...
