In reality. mankind does have the potential to impact the global climate…to protect it from a devastating meteor strike
To gin up more “climate crisis” hysteria, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) produced an ad in which a talking dinosaur bursts into the UN Headquarters in New York, with a special warning about fossil fuels.
Created by the U.N. Development Program, the comedic clip carries a serious message about how nations are driving themselves extinct by pouring billions more into oil, gas and coal production than renewable energy.
‘At least we had an asteroid,’ the realistic dino says. ‘What’s your excuse?’
‘You’re headed for a climate disaster,’ he adds. ‘And yet every year, governments spend hundreds of billions of public funds on fossil fuel subsidies. Imagine if we had spent hundreds of billions per year subsidizing giant meteors.’
Part of the agency’s Don’t Choose Extinction campaign, the PSA comes a few days before the start of the U.N. Climate Change summit, or Conference of the Parties (COP26), on October 31 in Glasgow.
The lameness is available in many languages. Comedian Jack Black voices over for the English version…but no language group is protected from the stupidity that promotes wealth redistribution to global bureaucrats.
It’s the first-ever film to be made inside the General Assembly Hall using computer-generated imagery, known as CGI, and features global celebrities voicing the dinosaur in numerous languages, including actors Eiza González (Spanish), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Danish), and Aïssa Maïga (French).
UNDP research released as part of the campaign shows that the world spends $423 billion annually just to subsidize fossil fuels, enough to cover a COVID-19 vaccination for every person in the world or three times the annual amount needed to eradicate global extreme poverty.
Legal Insurrection readers may recall several of my previous posts regarding extinction-level events, included one describing the Cretaceous era impact from a meteor that led to an actual global disaster, as well as four others (including the Permian event that wiped out 95% of all species).
I also recently reported a new National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) test of the DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) mission that will try to nudge an asteroid and determine if such a move can shield Earth from a significant asteroid impact.
A recent virtual test showed that such an approach could work.
A team led by Patrick King, a physicist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, ran 3-D simulations to see whether a nuke could provide planetary salvation. Like a wannabe Marco Inaros, a villain from the science fiction series “The Expanse” who schemed to bombard Earth from space, he hurled virtual 330-foot asteroids at our planet along five different orbital paths.
Powerful one-megaton nuclear devices were sent to greet them.
The simulations showed that when the detonation took place two months or more ahead of the projected impact date, it was sufficient to ensure that almost every asteroid fragment that survived the blast missed Earth. Any fragments that did reach Earth would probably be small enough to burn up in the atmosphere, said Dr. Bruck Syal, a study co-author.
In conclusion: Mankind can potentially impact the global climate…to protect it from a devastating meteor strike. So, instead of funding these preening bureaucrats, let’s pour it into more DAR-style research.
The only thing that needs to go extinct is the United Nations.
I would be willing to pay money to go toward a Jurassic Park-style cloning project to create a real Velociraptor we could send into the General Assembly. The outcome would be far less lame and far less destructive to humanity in the long run.
The ad received much deserved mocking on social media.

What happened to that Ice Age you promised me back in the '70s?
