U.N. climate chief warns of ‘catastrophe’ if world leaders continue to dawdle

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. climate chief says world leaders must recognize there is no option except to speed-up and scale-up action to tackle global warming, warning that continuing on the current path will lead to “a catastrophe.”

Patricia Espinosa stressed in two recent interviews with the Associated Press that climate scientists are saying there’s still a chance to make things right “but the window of opportunity is closing very soon” and the world has 12 years until carbon emissions reach “a point of no return.”

That means the world needs to accelerate all efforts to keep from reaching that level, “and therefore all efforts are absolutely indispensable” to cut carbon emissions and keep temperatures from rising, she said.

Some top scientists say reaching the “tipping point” in 12 years is an oversimplification of a U.N. report last year.

“Catastrophe!” Well, why didn’t you say so! Why, I would have given up my freedom and wrecked my country’s economy long before now, if I knew it was so important!

How much does Patricia Espinosa make per year? Does she fly first class and stay in 5-star hotels? Hmmm???

Looks like America’s Official Crackpot (AOC) either has struck a chord with the world’s doomsters, or this is where she got her “The world will end in 12 years” I suspect the latter because she’s not intelligent enough to come up with her own apocalypse scenario. Think it’s now down to 11 years and 7 months left.

Love to see Trump announce a halt grants to climate researchers until positions on both sides can be reassessed.

The howls from the free money crowd would be something to cherish.

Trump needs to decrease UN funding to $1.00 annually and kick them out of NY.

Go sell that to the Yurps. They’re suckers. They’ll probably hand over some cash if you just scream loud enough.

As for us, we’re alright Jack.

Well, you see.... most people know this is all bovine excriment. The only ones who say it isn’t want either a ton of money to study the “problem” or want to control our lives.

We need to eliminate all funding to those enemies of humankind and kick them out of the USA.

Would there be room on that boat for Max Waters, Pelosi, the klintons, the O'dummys, etc?

Best use of the word "dawdle" was in the San Antonio bar scene of Lonesome dove.

It is so obvious that a global carbon tax will stop a climate catastrophe, why can’t people see that? Oh and realigning the world economy to a centrally controlled socialist model too. For the children.

The end is near.

The sky’s falling

If YOU Americans don’t give us billions of your tax dollars you’ll all die.

We mean it this time...

And turn the UN building into a homeless shelter

It’d house a better class of bums that way

The 3600 signature cycle continues to unfold. Such as floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, bugs and pests as well as crazy unseasonable weather patterns. And the chances for humans to stop or avert any of this are pretty slim to none as this appears to be a re-occurring natural event or cycle. And even if all the politicians stand on their heads, as well as throwing money at what is conceived erroneously as a problem created by humans, what it is not, it would not change a thing.

Just take the ever increasing number of earthquakes worldwide, which are part of this repetitive cycle, even in the wildest imagination it would be difficult to make a correlation between it and anything related to global warming. At least for now and until the general public becomes knowledgably enough and realizes what the real causes are behind some of these events, ignorant politicians will milk these perceived causes for climate change or global warming for all its worth, in order to extract more taxes from the general public under the guise to fight man made global warming or climate change. Humans could not do anything about it one way or another even if they tried.

More signs and events of things to come are part of the 3600 signature cycle as it is unfolding world wide. About 3600 plus or minus years ago similar events gave the then ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Thutmose an Excedrin headache and just about drove him bananas, better known as the TEN PLAGUES, eventually resulting in the release or expulsion of the Israelis from bondage as they, or good old MOSES used these events to their advantage by threatening that there would be more to come unless they would be released.

This event went down in history as the Biblical EXODUS. The catch is that these events were not just limited to ancient Egypt at the time, as we scan ancient, available and somewhat scarce records from this period we will find that ancient China was plagued with very similar events and disasters.

On top of it we are also entering another Grand Minimum Solar (GMS) cycle what may compound some of these strange events, and I would not be surprised if this 3600 signature cycle also has a bearing on the GMS, but that is just my thought.

Just for interest sake about the same time 1500 BC or approximately close to 3600 years ago,1500 BC + 2018 AD= 3518 approx. the time of the EXODUS the volcano located on the island of Thera located in the Mediterranean blew up with the estimated force of about 40 (forty) nuclear bombs, permanently re-arranging the Mediterranean, forming the Santorini Archipelago. At the time turning days into night, also affecting Egypt with pumice from the eruption found there as well.

So far being located in the upper Midwest, overall we have remained pretty well unscathed aside from some flooding here and there. Lets hope it remains this way.

For someone who never heard of this it may elicit a smile, on the other hand you may want to keep in mind that there has been a steady increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, flooding all over as well as one season running into one another along with crazy weather patterns worldwide. All this just doesn’t happen without a reason and global warming supposedly caused by humans is positively not one of them.
