Another chucklehead has joined the international ‘climate crisis’ crusade.

Simon Stiell, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, said the next two years are “essential in saving our planet”.

In an outrageous fear-attack aimed at raising funds and gaining power over naïve governments and business leaders, Stiell has joined the ranks of U.N. Secretary-General Antonio ‘the planet is boiling’ Guterres and other climate weirdos like our very own Tim Flannery.

In Stiell’s speech at Chatham House in the UK he claimed thatgovernments, business leaders and development banks have just two years to take action to avert far worse climate change.

He warned that global warming is slipping down politicians’ agendas.

“We still have a chance to make greenhouse gas emissions tumble, with a new generation of national climate plans. But we need these stronger plans, now.”

He said that the main task for this year’s U.N. climate negotiations in Azerbaijan, is for countries to agree on a new target for climate finance to support developing countries struggling to invest in shifting away from fossil fuels and fighting climate change.

U.N. climate summits have swelled in size in recent years, with thousands of lobbyists and business representatives attending alongside the government delegations directly involved in the negotiations.

Nearly 84,000 people attended last year’s COP28 summit in Dubai, drawing criticism from many people after more than 2,000 fossil fuel lobbyists registered to attend……together with countless celebrities in their private jets!

Stiell called for more climate finance to be raised through debt relief, cheaper financing for poorer countries, new sources of international finance such as a tax on shipping emissions, and reforms at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

“Every day finance ministers, CEOs, investors, and climate bankers and development bankers, direct trillions of dollars. It’s time to shift those dollars,” Stiell said.

Stiell comes from Grenada, a small island developing state that is claimed to be “especially vulnerable” to climate change. Presumably, Grenada would be a financial beneficiary to any such ‘shifting of dollars’ – what a coincidence!

With voters going to the polls soon in several countries including India, South Africa, EU, UK and the United States – Stiell warned too often climate action was “slipping down cabinet agendas”.

Politicians from Republican frontrunner Donald Trump in the United States, to centre-right parties seeking gains in the EU’s upcoming election, have pushed back on climate policies as they become better educated on climate change and less willing to follow the ‘climate crisis’ fake narrative and outright lies.

There have been warnings of climate Armageddon for decades; here are just a few:

1970: “Ice age by 2000” claimed James Lodge, a scientist at the International Centre for Atmospheric Research in Colorado.

2000: Within a few years, British children “won’t know what snow is” according to Dr David Viner Senior Research Scientist at the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.

2004: The Guardian newspaper reporting on a “secret report suppressed by US Defense Chiefs” that predicted “Britain will have a Siberian climate by 2020”.

2006: So-called climate ‘expert’ Tim Flannery wrote of impending doom and mass death, stating that “British scientist James Lovelock has predicted a future human population of just a billion people.”  Lovelock later disavowed his alarmist views and also criticised Flannery.

2007: Tim Flannery stated: “Even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and river systems.”

2008:US Presidential candidate Al Gore predicted that the North Polar Ice Cap would be entirely ice-free within 5 years!

2008: NASA scientist Dr Hanson claimed “Arctic will be ice-free by 2018.”

2009: Based on new computer modelling, Al Gore predicts whilst addressing the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, that the polar ice cap and all Arctic Ocean ice may disappear by Summer 2014.

2009: Prince Charles (now King Charles) says: “Only 8 years to save the planet!”

2009: UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said we have 50 days to “save the planet from catastrophe.”

2012: Flannery wrote that Victoria’s “changing climate is likely to lead to less snowfall.” There has been abundant snow year after year since then.

2013: US Navy predicts the Arctic will be summer ice-free by 2016.

2013: The Arctic will be ice-free by 2015 according to Professor Peter Wadhams, co-author of a research paper in Nature journal.

2014: French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, in discussion with US Secretary of State John Kerry, claimed we only have “500 days before climate chaos.”

Even the left-wing Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has not suggested that there is any risk of planetary catastrophe due to human-induced CO2 emissions.

They haven’t yet accepted that CO2 is not actually a problem – but they undoubtedly will in due course as their scientists dig deeper into the issue. 

Given all this, you would hope that no-one with even a moderate level of intelligence will take Stiell’s warning seriously – but don’t count on it.

You can rest assured that our Minister for High Energy Prices, Chris ‘Blackouts’ Bowen, and his left-wing comrades will certainly agree with everything he said.
