UN chief warns of ‘point of no return’ on climate change
News 4 Jax ^ | 12/01/19 | Mark Carney, Antonio Guterres

Posted on 12/01/2019 6:51:53 PM PST by Libloather

– U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Sunday that the world’s efforts to stop climate change have been “utterly inadequate" so far and there is a danger global warming could pass the “point of no return.”

Speaking before the start Monday of a two-week in Madrid, the U.N. chief said the impact of rising temperatures — including more extreme weather — is already being felt around the world, with dramatic consequences for humans and other species.

**SNIP**

“The point of no return is no longer over the horizon,” Guterres told reporters in the Spanish capital. “It is in sight and hurtling toward us.”

Delegates from almost 200 countries will try to put the finishing touches on the rules governing the 2015 Paris climate accord at the Dec. 2-13 meeting, including how to create functioning international emissions trading systems and compensate poor countries for losses they suffer from rising sea levels and other consequences of climate change.

He noted that the world has the scientific knowledge and the technical means to limit global warming, but “what is lacking is political will.”

And everyone's loot. He kinda left that part out.

“... and compensate poor countries”

After they skim a couple 100 billion for themselves, of course. It’s all about wealth transfer. The USA will be expected to pay 80% of the funding while the biggest polluters, China and India will be exempt.

He and others can see that the tide has turned and it won’t be long until people are laughing in the faces of people who spew the man made climate change BS.

What are they going to say in 2031 when none of their climate predictions come true? “Whoops!” won’t do for an answer.

They need to take control ASAP. As temperatures start to cool due to solar activity, they need their programs to be in place in order to take credit for the natural fluctuation.

Compensate POOR countries!?

This has NOTHING to do with the Climate Change hoax and everything to do with the confiscation of more money from America.

Again Not to be sarcastic, but we’ve heard time and time again, year after year, decade after decade, from these ignorant idiot Luddite liberal types that man cannot continue on, that the planet cannot sustain us.

They have ALWAYS been wrong.

Lunatic futurists like these people are never, never, held to account for their failed predictions. So, 2031 or 2231, they.will.not.shut.up.

Partner, Great post and you have said it all for us.

These liberal idiots do not understand that the "American Taxpayer" will foot the bill for so called "Climate Change" to make these guys millionaires in good ole American dollars.

Notice how they change it year after year and now it is called "Climate Change". They called it "Global Warming" and before that "Global Cooling" in years before this year.

If we pass the point of return, meaning no matter what we do the world will end anyway, will they stop this ridiculous crusade since it will be pointless?

They will sat the same thing. Liberals never give up on their lies. How many times have they been proven wrong when they claim that relaxing firearms carry laws will result in “blood in the streets”, “shootings over fender benders and parking spaces”, and “the wild west”?
