UN Chief Goes on Delusional Tirade Against Fossil Fuels, Saying They Are “Incompatible with Human Survival”
Meanwhile, globalists of the World Economic Forum want the number of cars around the world to be reduced by 75% by 2050.
As the push-back against eco-tyranny intensifies, the private-jet-setting global elites are doubling down on their liberty-crushing, prosperity-killing, humanity-demeaning policies.
To begin with, the head of the United Nations just went on a delusional tirade against fossil fuels.
The head of the United Nations launched a tirade against fossil fuel companies Thursday, accusing them of betraying future generations and undermining efforts to phase out a product he called “incompatible with human survival.”
Secretary-General António Guterres also dismissed suggestions by some oil executives — including the man tapped to chair this year’s international climate talks in Dubai — that fossil fuel firms can keep up production if they find a way to capture planet-warming carbon emissions. He warned that this would just make them “more efficient planet-wreckers.”
It appears that Guterres’ rage stems from the fact that the nations of the world are not necessarily united in the struggle against fossil fuels. Furthermore, politicians are beginning to have some success countering climate cult inanity.
His remarks come after the United Arab Emirates, which will host U.N. climate change negotiations (COP28) later this year, said that talks should focus on phasing out emissions, not fossil fuels. Negotiators are struggling to agree to an agenda for COP28, due to start Nov. 30, which could put talks at risk.
Some wealthy Western states and climate-afflicted island nations have been pushing for a phase out of fossil fuels, while resource-rich countries have campaigned to keep drilling.
“Fossil fuel companies must also cease and desist influence peddling and legal threats designed to knee-cap progress. I am thinking particularly of recent attempts to subvert net-zero alliances, invoking anti-trust legislation,” Guterres said.
Republican politicians in some U.S. states pushing back against sustainability efforts have charged that companies in such climate alliances and using environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards could be breaking anti-trust laws by aligning their policies.
At the same time, globalists of the World Economic Forum (WEF) want the number of cars around the world to be reduced by 75% by 2050.
The goal is buried in a briefing paper released last month called “The Urban Mobility Scorecard Tool: Benchmarking the Transition to Sustainable Urban Mobility.” It points out that more than two-thirds of the world’s population will be urban by 2050. If we are to meet their needs and achieve the climate goals of the Paris Agreement, the report recommends “electrification, public transport and shared mobility.”
This will mean a lot fewer cars: “Reduce vehicles from a potential 2.1 billion to 0.5 billion.” That is a radical drop with fewer than 30 years to do it. But this, it says, “could slash emissions from passenger vehicles by 80% compared to a business-as-usual scenario—reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by 3.9 billion tons a year.”
The briefing paper is a masterful example of delusion as well. The phrase these global-scale bureaucrats are parsing out now is “shared mobility.”
By 2050, almost 70% of the world’s population will live in urban areas, swelling the size of towns and cities by 2.5 billion people. Over the same period, demand for urban travel is predicted to double. On the current trajectory, that would add 4.6 billion tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere every
year by mid-century. Such a scenario is at odds with both the Paris Agreement on climate change and a vision of cities as healthy, sustainable and successful places to live.
There is another way. Electrifying vehicles is vital, but not enough. Only by syncing electrification with a shift to shared mobility can cities achieve necessary reductions in emissions, while tackling wider issues of congestion, health and more. That means expanding public and shared transport systems, embracing innovations in connected and autonomous technology, and delivering more compact cities fit for walking and cycling.
Carbon dioxide is a life-essential gas. Its loss would be incompatible with life. Consider that your breath emits about 40,000 ppm of this gas, and the current levels in the atmosphere are 415 ppm.

The response by the “experts” to the covid pandemic has taught people to be extremely wary of simple solutions to problems based on “the Science™”. We now have decades of evidence that the assertions about global warming have proven untrue, so why should we deny ourselves the life-essential and comfort-enhancing products made from fossil fuels?
The best way to understand climate change is to study how the sun influences our earth. For example, this graph shows just two solar-driven cycles that are currently affecting our climate … https://t.co/TZfVSDP9YB pic.twitter.com/r6lv6c1YBK

I predict there will be even more push-back against global eco-tyranny as the due date for the ridiculous agenda items draws near.
I also foresee even more hyperbolic claims of doom from the globalist power-seekers and more dubious, narrative-based reporting from their media minions.
Hopefully, real science and humanity will prevail.DONATE
