As an extreme year for hurricanes, wildfires and heat waves comes to an end, the head of the United Nations challenged world leaders to make 2021 the year that humanity ends its “war on nature” and commits to a future free of planet-warming carbon pollution.
With new reports highlighting 2020’s record-breaking weather and growing fossil fuels extraction that triggers global warming, U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres delivered yet another urgent appeal to curb climate change. It was tinged with optimism but delivered dire warnings, as the UN gears up for a Dec. 12 virtual climate summit in France on the 5th anniversary of the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement.
“The state of the planet is broken,” Guterres said in a speech at Columbia University. “Humanity is waging war on nature. This is suicidal.”
“Apocalyptic fires and floods, cyclones and hurricanes are increasingly the new normal,” he said.
In a report, the World Meteorological Organization said this year is set to end about 1.2°C (2.2°F) warmer than the last half of the 1800s, which scientists use as a baseline for warming caused by heat-trapping gases from the burning of coal, oil and natural gas. Most trapped heat goes into the world’s seas, and ocean temperatures now are at record levels. It also means 2020 will go down as one of the three hottest years on record. …

I would take that challenge if the UN would give up its war on humanity.
UN officials who are selected, not elected, will continue to fly around the world to luxurious locales on private jets; it’s the “little” people who are the target of calls to be “carbon neutral”.
They’re nuts, Jim!
Carbon Free = No Humans....
Right back to the Solyndra fraud, to lining Al Gore's pockets, to all sorts of government-backed crimes and frauds against the American taxpayer.
Has Hunter set up a fund yet for "sustainable global energy alternatives"?
Climate Fraud Exposed: CO2 doesn’t rise up, trap and retain heat February 3, 2017 - Written by John O’Sullivan, principia-scientific.org
The first damaging fact to the theory: CO2 is actually a heavy gas. It is not ‘well mixed’ in the air as per the glib claim. Just check out the NASA image (above) showing widely varying carbon dioxide concentrations. Indeed, schoolchildren are shown just how heavy CO2 is by way of a simple school lab experiment. This heavy gas thus struggles to rise and soon falls back to earth due to its Specific Gravity (SG). Real scientists rely on the SG measure which gives standard air a value of 1.0 where the measured SG of CO2 is 1.5 (considerably heavier). Thus, in the real world the warming theory barely gets off the ground.
So, coned needs to cut off the power to the mold growth on the Hudson.
Wouldn't that be nice, end legalized abortion's war on nature and the homosexual marriage war on nature.
They want us back in caves and eating grass.
“UN calls on humanity to end ‘war on nature,’ go carbon-free “
These type of bumper sticker propaganda are beyond stupid.
Isn’t carbon part of nature? In fact without carbon there would be no life!
The UN is filled with swamp creatures, makes Washington look “clean”.
LOL...that is fantastic!
You go neutral first Antonio,you elitist pig
The UN needs to permanently turn off the electricity in all of their buildings.
They have wasted _enough_ of the planet’s precious resources!
You first. Idiots.
Kill all the plants!
Let’s all starve!
They can lead by example.
There’s lots of things they can do to go carbon free.
They can not travel, especially air travel and cars. They can not heat their homes.
They can not use any electricity that comes from any source even remotely connected to fossil fuels.
They can stop breathing.
