APOCALYPSE NOW? UN Report Says Global Warming ‘Cannot Be Stopped’ Over Next 30 Years

A new report from the United Nations is raising alarms among environmentalists and climate change activists across the globe this week, with data allegedly showing the impact of global warming cannot be reversed “over the next 30 years.”

“Nations have delayed curbing their fossil-fuel emissions for so long that they can no longer stop global warming from intensifying over the next 30 years, though there is still a short window to prevent the most harrowing future, a major new United Nations scientific report has concluded,” writes the New York Times.

“Humans have already heated the planet by roughly 1.1 degrees Celsius, or 2 degrees Fahrenheit, since the 19th century, largely by burning coal, oil and gas for energy. And the consequences can be felt across the globe: This summer alone, blistering heat waves have killed hundreds of people in the United States and Canada, floods have devastated Germany and China, and wildfires have raged out of control in Siberia, Turkey and Greece,” adds the newspaper.

“It’s not like we can draw a sharp line where, if we stay at 1.5 degrees, we’re safe, and at 2 degrees or 3 degrees it’s game over,” said Robert Kopp, an environmental scientist at Rutgers University. “But every extra bit of warming increases the risks.”

Democrats in the United States are calling for trillions in new spending on programs like the Green New Deal to promote clean energy and reduce the impact of fossil fuels.

    Finally the UN is admitting that global warming can’t be fixed. So, let’s stop the insanity, leave the campgrounds cleaner than we found them, and teach our kids that through innovation they could come up with a way to create clean energy that hasn’t been thought of without destroying the economy.

    They should have sent that snotty little bitch Greta Thunberg to China to lecture them about emissions.

    Climate Change bullshit exists only to hobble the Western world and give unfair advantage to states like China that will grind slave labor into paste building polluting factories to manufacture cheap shit for consumers. Globalist Corporatism is the enemy, not Capitalism

    More CO2? Good! We’re in a CO2 famine and plants could do with a bit more of it. Ask Prof Happer.

  5. Dickie_Greenleaf says:

    The IPCC reports are notoriously skewed toward the activist position and are written in such a way that the worst case scenarios are easily cherry-picked by complicit journalists. Follow Bjorn Lomborg and Michael Shellenberger for more reasoned interpretations of the “report”.

    So what, 30 years from now its gonna be “in 2075, America will all be doomed if we do not construct additional pylons.” Im all for the fight against pollution. However, all this rhetoric should be blasted at China and India. They are the worlds biggest polluters.

    Meanwhile we cut our pipeline, but approve construction of Russias new one.
