Former UN Climate Chief: Only Three Years Left To Save The Planet

(Daily Caller News Foundation) The United Nation’s former global warming czar has published a paper claiming humanity only has three years left to avert dangerous global warming and meet the goals of the Paris climate accord.

To do that, Christiana Figueres says governments and businesses need to pony up $1.3 trillion a year by 2020 earmarked for “climate action” to decarbonize the global economy. That’s on top of boosting green energy and phasing out fossil fuels, mostly coal.

“[S]hould emissions continue to rise beyond 2020, or even remain level, the temperature goals set in Paris become almost unattainable,” Figueres, the former head of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, wrote in an article published in Nature. “The UN Sustainable Development Goals that were agreed in 2015 would also be at grave risk.”

“These goals may be idealistic at best, unrealistic at worst. However, we are in the age of exponential transformation and think that such a focus will unleash ingenuity,” Figueres wrote in her article, which was co-authored by a few environmentalists and scientists.

The Paris accord aims to “significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change” by keeping global warming “well below” two degrees Celsius by 2100. Beyond that, many activist scientists say global warming poses a danger to humanity.

World leaders are set to meet at the G20 summit in July, and Figueres wants them to “highlight the importance of the 2020 climate turning point for greenhouse-gas emissions” by imposing more policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and putting up more money for climate programs.

Figueres isn’t the first to propose a costly plan to limit future global warming. A group associated with former Vice President Al Gore issued a report in April calling for $15 trillion to be spent on green energy and other programs to limit global warming.

The Gore-affiliated Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) called for “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.”

A recent Bloomberg New Energy Finance report estimated $12.7 trillion was needed to keep projected global warming below 2 degrees Celsius by the end of the century.

The report estimated $7.4 trillion will be invested in new green energy capacity by 2040, adding a “further $5.3 trillion investment in 3.9 [terawatts] of zero-carbon capacity would be consistent with keeping the planet on a 2-degrees-C trajectory.”

Figueres calls for about $1.3 trillion a year to fight global warming by 2020. So the actual cost of her plan is likely on par or higher than those suggested outlined by the Gore group and Bloomberg.

“[P]lans to fully decarbonize buildings and infrastructures by 2050, with funding of $300 billion annually,” she wrote, adding the “financial sector has rethought how it deploys capital and is mobilizing at least $1 trillion a year for climate action.”

That includes issuing “green bonds” to finance climate programs.

The world would need to get 30 percent of its electricity from green sources, electric vehicles would need to be 15 percent of the global vehicle fleet and reduce deforestation, wrote Figueres and company.

            This is climate change: 65,000,000 yrs. ago most of North America was under water. There are petrified sand dines in Arizona and N. Mexico for that inland sea. 1,000,000 years ago, NJ and FL were a mile under water. 10,000 years ago NYC (60 mi. north of me) a 1-2 mile high glacier covered what is now Manhattan. Any questions? See any geology, paleontology, cosmology, ortry Nat’l Geo of Sci Am.

          • taliesin319

            In 1962 the fore runners of this bilge assured us that by 1990 tops Manhattan would be covered with 60 feet of ice. Since we had not been fed communist B/S we just formed study groups with people in the other professors class in order to pass exams and left Chicken Little to maunder on while we read our notes from the study group. He got paid for nothing. He was the exception. Now all teachers,are forced to teach, snowflakes color pretty pictures until some crisis situation occurs and they are then suicidal because they will either learn or be pushed out of the way until they do or perish. Their choice.

        By the way I have a Master’s in Physics before you start your name calling. So shove your liberal arts degree.

        • Jim Hall

          Just don’t make the mistake of thinking that being able to regurgitate what liberal college professors passed on makes you the expert. I’ll agree that it might allow you to have more experience in critical thinking, but we’ll all be better off if all of our egos remain in check. Don’t forget that man once believed the earth to be the center of the universe and it took one non-compliant thinker to correct the mistake.

          What gets me is these morons MUST know that CO2 is vital for life on earth. This was elementary science, second or third grade. They no longer, and have not been, teaching anything useful for many years.

          Plants flourish with lots of CO2. Now, WHY are they trying so hard to reduce CO2 levels????? To me, that is the $64,000 question. I’d bet most of you know the answer.

      they want to bring down emissions 2 points in a 100 years, cry me a river, keep drinking the Obama kool aide and why not talk to china and india, the worst two country polluters we have on the planet and still can have that right until 2030, or 30 more years, something isn’t right, why does America have to pay to play with Paris? I say bull on this global, climate change, see how they changed the wording after they knew they got caught, and the climate changes in the north east 4 times a year.

        We don’t have to play this game. It’s time to call on all of our representatives; & especially President Trump; to (Get Us Out of the UN)!

          • valentina

            The UN was created to destroy humanity when the end would come. The end chosen by the elite and Dems . But to be accepted by the world , they called it

            All a gimmick to prepare them to kill 6.9 billion of us

  • ProudPatriot

    As I’ve said on here before, I am an engineer in the coal industry. Let me say again: there is more evidence that “global warming” is a geological trend than a human induced phenomenon. I’m not saying humans haven’t contributed to an increase in frequency of a warming period, but I am saying that this planet has went through countless climate cycles. Any educated geologist will tell you that the fossil record and crust stratigraphy back it up.

    • Jon Blake

      “trend”…this I can accept

    • Well said, I am elated that someone, especially an engineer, would agree with me! Yes, we do contribute to the warming of the planet, but in the very large scheme of things, our negative contribution to the warming of the planet, is miniscule! Our very existence is a drop in the bucket of the passage of time..

    For that kind of wealth transfer, we could completely encase the Earth in solar cells, and then install heat pumps to control the temperature worldwide. Would not be able to seer the stars very well. Climate Change is simply a wealth transfer scheme.

    No wonder why the progressive liberals are so Fuc’d up!

    Global Warming, Climate Change, its like a bad comedy act. Did not Al “Global Warming” Gore state half of Florida would be under water in 10 years in 2005?? Just another scare tactic, vote for us or else LIBERAL LIE!!!

    • Bandit

      He also said that the planet would be completely ice free by 2013, he said that back in 2004, yeah well in some areas the ice is thicker now tan it was back then.

      • ECwashr

        John Coleman, founder of the Weather channel has continually challenged Gore or anyone else to a debate on Global Warming. Of course no one takes him up on his offer..

  • BornAgainSouthernPride

    Thats why they had to change it from global cooling to global warming and now to climate change. The data never supports their hypothese. Now that it is climate change, and the climate is always changing, they don’t need any data… Oh look, the climate is changing… pay me.

  • Gerry Costa

    In excess of a trillion dollars a year from governments and businesses to do what —- stop it from raining one day and sunshine the next or stop the 4 seasons that we have. I have this feeling it is more like make us elitists wealthier so that we can run the world that will most likely be here after 2020. This is the 2nd biggest scam in our history, 2nd only to obozo being our president for 8 years.

      They will implode, screaming all the while that it’s a vast Right-Wing conspiracy engineered
      and financed by the Koch Bros.

  • BruceB

    What a total jackass. We can not directly control the climate, only Mother Nature can do that. And no matter what we do, we can not achieve any measurable change in a 3 year time frame. The planet has gone through ice ages and hot ages in the past and it will do so again, when nature thinks it is time to reset the ecology of the planet. Any more money spent on this nonsense is a total waste and only lines the pockets of the big companies and executives, who think their method is the one magic bullet. No such thing exists.

    • Jere Skelton

      God’s Word warns us of false prophets and con artist. Global warming alarmist is only one example.

  • Paul454

    I could care less what these politically-motivated non-scientists have to say. Time lines which don’t exist, carbon dioxide of which 3% or less is contributed by human beings and which is seen in the Antarctic ice record to be a NON-DRIVER of temperature for the last half-million years, 20 UN computer models none of which sufficiently can model the climate-temperature system, and remedial plans which paralyze industry so that development of nuclear fusion never occurs! Oh yes, these bozos have our backs or rather, have sought to put a knife in our backs at the first chance they get! The Paris accords offer the world a $100,000,000,000 (yes, $100 trillion) price tag for POSSIBLY keeping rising temperature to only 3/4 of one degree Celsius in 100 years! Can you say the word “imbecilic”? Drop kick these lunatics with their nonsensical ideas!

  • travis690

    Where does one begin?

    I’ll keep it short. AlGore said multiple times over the years that the world has “only 10 years left” before it is destroyed by “global warming.” The most recent time was in 2004.

    Al? I’m still here, and I think you are too. So is planet Earth. What the heck happened?

    • Victoria

      I totally agree! This Chicken Little scheme has gone on long enough! What an expensive joke!

    • America1st

      Unfortunately Al is still here and worth between $200 and $300 million primarily due to his global warming war mongering. How many of his 2006 “An Inconvenient Truth” predictions for 2016 came true?

  • Martin Rettig

    Only 3 years to save the planet, we need to get rid of the UN in 1 year, why risk the end of civilization waiting for 3 years?

  • Don Juan

    So governments and businesses worldwide need to pony up 1.3 trillion dollars per year for the unforeseen future to staff off the possible extinction of man and beast because of detrimental climate change? I’m sure if Donald Trump did not pull out of the Paris Accord, it would have been the United States that would have pony up most of this 1.3 trillion dollars. Why do I get a wrenching gut feeling that most this money, if not all of this money, would have ened up in a bunch of political fat cats pockets. Donald Trump did the right thing. Let these globist extortionist losers now wither and die on the vine along with their false and unprovenable claims. Sounds just like the Democrat party, doesn’t it?

  • Judy Smith

    Could be that the earth has only two more years remaining, but “climate change” in the way you mean it has nothing to do with it. The Lord may have decided to return in two years because we’ve gone farther than we should and He is going to return to take His church. I am not saying this as prophecy, just that I know that He and He alone decides things like we went through a drought where I live for several months and now are experiencing an abundance of rain. He knows what we need and when we need it. He sends us what we need on His schedule.

    • Jere Skelton

      Thank you. These people have no idea who
      is in total control. God has blessed you. I’m thankful for being blessed, also.

      • Judy Smith

        God bless you, Jere. It’s wonderful to hear from a fellow believer. God knows your heart (and mine). I know we are in for some surprises of how wonderful the things of eternity will be. So many are in for a surprise when God lets them know that it is He and He alone who controls every avenue of our lives. They don’t realize that they are only able to do the wrong things that they do because God has created them with a free will and is allowing their actions. Keep being the bright light you are to those around you. God notices.

    • I was waiting for someone to bring this up! I am afraid that “Divine power” has nothing to do with this.

  • Sgt. York

    This is one more reason to ditch the UN as it is going to next want big money from the members,Mainly the USA to help avert this end of the earth as if money could save us,this dang Bunch is just here now to milk the world of money and then shove the Globalist take over as they have the big money the idiots believing in Globalism and the one leader in his head Ovomit. This is more Climate change, UNglobal,NWO and Ovomit bs.

    The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate at Bergen Norway.
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.
    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
    Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.
    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.
    Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

    * * * * * * * * *
    I must apologize. I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922 , as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 93 years ago.

    This must have been caused by the Model T Ford’s emissions or possibly from horse and cattle farts.

    Obama’s “Paris Climate Agreement” that President Trump rescued us from, is part of UN Agenda 21-2030. The Globalist Elite religion is climate change and the globalists want total control of America, Americans and America’s resources. Climate change is being pushed for an excuse for that global government but “climate change” is in actuality a globalist scheme to redistribute America’s wealth and power to the entire world.

  • Estoban

    Move the UN to Antarctica to save the NWO snowflakes from sinking beneath the sea, after cutting off all funding for them.

  • Well said sir! Now, if we could explain that to the sheeple who signed on with Al Gore and his blind followers, the Paris Accord would be non existent!!!!

      Simple.
      Move the UN to Jerusalem, and make it an International city under the control of the UN, with GUARANTEED access to the Holy Places for ALL religions.

    Nothing more than a socialist ploy to redistribute wealth. Climate has been changing since the first primordial atmosphere formed billions of years ago. Paleontology tells us North America has been flooded by ancient oceans and the waters receded. Alaska was home to subtropical flora and dinosaurs. Ice sheets once covered much of North America. Weather is changeable as is climate. The kicker… wealthy nations need to bleed taxpayers dry as the globalists seek to find ways to redistribute our tax dollars. FYI, carbon credits is like paying someone else to go on a diet for you and foolishly you believe you will reap the health benefits.

I thought the arctic was ALREADY supposed to have disappeared, Florida was ALREADY supposed to be under water, people were ALREADY supposed to be dropping like flies from the heat. . . wait. . . all that’s not happening? Never mind. These idiots have been forecasting armageddon since 1975- first the coming ice age, then global warming, now climate change- is it any wonder the American prople have given all the sky-is-falling hucksters a collective yawn and said, “Go away?”

    • nwjohnson

      They were right about one thing, the heat in Florida right now is intense.

      • charles johnston

        Heat is nothing new. . being underater would be.

  • STOCKBOY

    Listen you idiot bureaucrat, the climate will continue to change (both colder and warmer) as long as we have a climate. And I hope that is longer than we have you.

  • Stephen Griffith

    $1.3 Trillion a year to decarbonize the Global Economy. According to Christiana Figueres from the U.N. Global Warming Fake Climate Si-Fi. They should shut up, it would help alot to lower emissions, with less of their carbonizing babel. Total Morons .

  • bob ashworth

    All gases and dust in the atmosphere cool the planet. no warming. They reflect part of the radiant energy from the sun (that’s were we get our energy). CFCs destroyed ozone in the stratosphere ad the earth warmed about O.5C from 1965 to 2000. Montreal Protocol was put into place and CFCs were no longer used for air conditioners. After 2000 no warming.

  • PBHayes

    I’m 66 years old and have lived and or worked in about 75 countries. I have to laugh at the stupidity of those who have fallen for this global warming/climate change nonsense. Please note the Russians, Chinese, Indians and most of the developed world are not doing a thing in response to this insanity. Why is that one must ask? It’s only the USA which has fallen victim to the Communist leftist politics of the Democrats that has provided billions of dollars in support of this ignorance. People say gosh it just stopped raining in Southern California so it must be the car fumes. Gosh there are actual hurricanes in Florida and the Caribbean so it must be climate change. Gee we just had a tornado in Oklahoma so we better stop driving cars. The seas are all rising and the beach communities will soon be under water. I’ve been going to the beach since the 50’s and the beaches are all at the same levels. Remember the song It Never Rains In Sunny Southern California well that came out in the 60’s I believe.There have always been tornado’s and hurricane’s in Florida and yes it snows in the mountains and the northeast. I lived in Belgrade, Serbia for a year where they use unscrubbed coal to heat and generate electricity and have done so for many years. The weather there is hot in the summer and very cold and snowy in the winter and that’s how it has always been. The intelligent people of this world should laugh very loud at Ms. Figueres and tell her the game is over.

    Figueres—God has laid out the destination of the earth and his word is true and based in knowledge
    there will always be hot —cold–wet –dry. I don’t think you can control volcanoes —floods–winds
    all these are God’s tools and I don’t believe he will allow you to regulate him.

    decarbonize the global economy.”

    Wait………. aren’t we made of carbon?

    • 7LibertyForAll

      All of life is carbon-based. So WHY do they want to supposedly lower the CO2 and “sequester” the carbon? Plants thrive with lots of CO2 and they then produce lots of oxygen.

  • Deplorable wizard

    The UN really is pushing agenda 21, hard. The ridiculousness of their argument and the ignorant gullibility of the sheeple makes it so easy for them.

    … wait, wasn’t this supposed to ” be ” a few years back? Now, subject to change without notice, it’s been moved forward.

    HEADLINE: 2020.
    ” …. governments and businesses need to pony up $1.3 Billion a year by 2030 earmarked for “climate action” to decarbonize the global economy…. ”

    Reason – their scam did not bring in the needed money, so they want to re-scare us, yet again ….

    Yes, I changed the amount, because they realized that amount was not going to happen and thus they think IF they lower the ” cost ” ( amount for their slush fund ) .. it might be easier to sell.

    Bottom Line: just take a look at the carbon foot prints of these ” preachers ” as they tell us:

    “DO AS WE SAY, NOT AS WE DO! We have the right, you do not. “

Yes this world will burn but NOTHING and I do mean NOTHING man can do will change that FACT. Man cannot stop or speed up that burning. GOD will do it and he said so many many years ago so we cannot alter that fact. Thus woman just wants a chunk of that 1.3 trillion her ilk is trying to extort from the world.

Oh wait,As We all already know only the USA makes pollution & gives Enviro freaks the power to sue so We can tear down all our power plants and steel mills to send to 3rd world countries leaving all the EPA garbage sitting on the ground once We ship the plants & manufacturing facilities off to them!Oh and reconvert them from natural gas back to free burning coal!!!!What a joke

  • Jan

    Moron; to say the least. The UN has only one thing they want to change; & that’s a free market economy. They hope to gain full control of the energy sector world-wide; so corporations can be controlled & monopolized, by them. These “idiots”, don’t have one shread of evidence about the so called “climate change” agenda; which was a scam from the beginning. They just know that it’s the biggest single piece of legislation, that is large enough to control world economy.

  • Dan

    The cost to individauls and families of those injured by illegals is never even considered or published….

    If an American was driving illegally without a license, he could very well spend 30 days in jail, probably a couple hundred hours of public service, a hefty fine, & after a year, maybe get a license and then pay hefty insurance premiums for a good number of years.

    I was in Atlanta metro area in, I think it was 2007. I pulled up behind a car at a stop sign and two ladies pulled up behind me. It was dark out. Around the curve comes a car going full blast and slammed into the ladies, who slammed into me, and pushed me into the car in front of me. Damage to front and back of my vehicle, I am sure the ladies car was probably totaled and the car in front of me suffered minor damage.

    The driver who slammed into our vehicles was an illegal, drunk, and jumped out of his vehicle and began to run. I ended up tackling him and holding him on the ground till the police arrived. Turned out he was driving his friends car (an illegal) with no Insurance.

    The two ladies were taken to the hospital. I went to court and the two ladies had collars on their necks. No illegals to be found and the courts and police had no ideas where they were.

    I am sure those ladies will have probably have had problems all of their lives, and it is up to them to figure out how to pay for their hospital bills.

    I had to pay the deductible to repair my vehicle.

    If you or I would have been that driver, just think what you would have to legally go through, yet those two illegals are probably still driving with no license or insurance.

    These types of accidents are never reported.

    I have no quarrel with legals. In fact I have a niece who is married to a Mexican national and has been in the US legally for many years and a Cousin who is Married to a Mexican National and has lived peaceably between Mexico and the U.S for many years. Both are very functional families.

    Illegals who break the law are definitely a frustration for me.

    Totally agree, huge socialist scheme (agendas 2030/21) to de-industrialise the west and transfer wealth to the United Nation! This muslim run despicable organisation should be scrapped and all sane, moral western countries should pull out and stop the nonsense.
    These western nations could then regroup into a separate organisation that can truly do what the United Nation’s original charter designated all those years ago BEFORE it was hijacked by the IOC and all the despots that currently run it. Trump and Australia need to withdraw, but you have more hope than we do in Australia whilst our current socialist PM is still in power (but his hope of hanging on is fading by the hour luckily).

  • Gregg Parker

    LOL… they let China and India go on unhindered for the next 30 years but there is only three years left before we go boom… who’s been nipping at the Old Grand Dad again?…. How about everyone checks out the CIAs website and watch the director give his speech about geo-engineering and aerosol spraying to a group of the Council on Foreign Relations. He explains what no one will talk about. Then we can have a scientific debate where both sides are armed with the CIA truth of the matter. Recall Russia has been conducting weather modification projects for 20 years mostly against the US… but I’m sure we would never do something like that in return, right Al Gore?

The second they changed it from Global Warming to climate Change everyone should have had a red flag going up. This scam is just another way to redistribute America peoples wealth, which has already being done through NATO, UN and NAFTA. Why do you think that our President left the paris Climate Peace Accord, granted the other countries were upset. The Maxiest democrats were already redistributing our wealth to China, Russian, India and the EU by so called helping them to get up to par with us. It required us to lower our emissions, which are the lowest in the world, to another 25% while the other countries do not even have to start cleaning their emissions up until 2030! Soon they had plans to start having Global Taxes and who do you think would have to pay the most. Americans, get educated quickly. They hate President Trump, their corruption and plans for a Global Government will be uncovered soon!

THEY SAID THAT THE SLIGHT CHANGE IN CLIMATE IS THE RESULT OF THE EARTH’S REVOLUTION TO THE SUN, AND IT HAPPENS EVERY THOUSANDS OF YEARS. The Scam is in the industry that the scammers invest in and their tactic is to scare the people to buy their product. Some became multi-millionaires in this scam.

    Just a bunch of thieves. Some sources of carbon dioxide are not even being measured. The volcano in Hawaii has been flowing since 1981, giving off trillions of BTU’s. Has anyone measured that yet? How about algae growth in polluted rivers, seas, lakes, and oceans. China has contributed to the mid-Pacific floating garbage dump which is the size of the United States. Amazon fires are burning 24/7. Have they been measured? How about underwater volcanoes? Ships are struggling to get into the north atlantic sea lanes to the arctic because of excessive sea ice – in summer. Doesn’t sound like an emergency to me.
