We all know that the United Nations is an evil globalist institution populated largely by third-world tyrants. The UN is promoting every wacky left-wing idea imaginable including a radical ‘green’ agenda. Here are some excerpts from Breitbart News about its most recent plan, with a Nikitas3.com comment about each excerpt:
Breitbart reports: The U.N. has seen the future and it is inhabited by cycling vegetarians who eschew plane travel and live a life of solar powered carbon neutrality.
Those are the key elements announced Wednesday driving what the globalist organization wants for a “green” post-coronavirus world, laying out restrictions it sees as the “final hope” for humanity to save the planet.
According to the U.N. Environment Programme’s Emissions Gap Report 2020, the world must embrace urgent investments in climate action as part of coronavirus recovery, to “bring the world closer to the Paris Agreement goal of at most a 2-degree Celsius temperature rise.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Oh, sure, the ‘final hope’. These people are always predicting the end of the world. It’s like their fearmongering prediction that rising sea levels are going to submerge all of the world’s coastal cities. This is bunk. Despite that fact that the earth has experienced much hotter climates in the past than we have today, no coastal city has ever gone underwater.
Look at that nonsense about the “2-degree Celsius temperature rise”. So what? The earth has been much hotter in the past. And this temperature increase is a prediction that the ‘greenies’ are making for 100 years down the road. Yet these same people can’t even tell us what the weather is going to be three days from now.
In fact ‘global warming’ would be good for mankind. Just look at all of the car accidents, slip-and-fall injuries and mass burning of heating fuel we see in the Winter. Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t have these things? We also would not need to spend astronomical amounts of money plowing, sanding and salting roads.
A warmer climate would produce more food for humanity by extending the growing seasons. That is a good thing. Thus we should not fear ‘warming’. It is a natural thing that we can deal with easily.
Breitbart reports: Inger Andersen, UNEP Executive Director, warned the (China virus) pandemic can take “a huge slice out of greenhouse gas emissions” and slow climate change, but more is needed. She warned:
“I urge governments to back a green recovery in the next stage of COVID-19 fiscal interventions and raise significantly their climate ambitions in 2021.”
To that end the report outlines changes in “consumption behaviour by the private sector and individuals,” through various means.
These include individuals forgoing long-haul international flights that could reduce personal footprints “by almost two tonnes of CO2” and an end to coal-fired power generation.
Nikitas3.com comment: So there you go. They are using the China virus as an excuse to force changes on us and shut down our power plants.
By ‘greenhouse gas emissions’, they are mostly referring to carbon dioxide (CO2). Yet CO2 has existed naturally in the atmosphere since the beginning of time but the ‘greenies’ are suddenly treating it like a dangerous pollutant.
Breitbart reports: Switching to renewable electricity by households could curb carbon by around 1.5 tonnes per capita, according to the report, while embracing a vegetarian diet would save around half a tonne of carbon on average.
Nikitas3.com comment: There is absolutely no way to say that these figures are accurate. These ‘greenies’ have been putting out these kinds of numbers for decades, yet there is no way to prove them. They are just made up by the ‘greenies’ and then repeated by the Fake News media. And if you look at the predictions that ‘greenies’ have made in the past, they have been virtually all wrong.
They predicted on the first ‘earth day’ in 1970 that the world was going to run out of oil by 1990. Yet we have more oil than ever today and it is getting easier to find and extract. Nikitas3.com believes that the earth has an unlimited supply of oil and natural gas.
Perhaps you have noticed that it is the same frenzied alarmists on the left who are predicting ‘climate’ disaster who are also putting out the most extreme stories about the virus. This is typical. They are always seeking to control us through fear.
Breitbart News reports: The latest recommendations as dictated by the U.N. include replacing domestic short haul flights with rail travel; promoting cycling and car-sharing while making housing more energy efficient.
Nikitas3.com comment: Air travel is extremely efficient. Passenger trains are very INefficient, which is why they went out of business. A Boeing 737 can carry 200 passengers and weighs 60 tons empty (one-third ton per passenger). The average Amtrak train carries 200 to 400 passengers and its locomotive and cars weigh 500 tons to 1,000 tons empty (2 to 4 tons per passenger).
Cycling is another ‘green’ hoax. We cannot ride a bicycle to work over long distances, or when it is very hot, very cold, raining or snowing. Bicycling to work is dangerous. There is a very high accident rate.
Our houses are already very energy-efficient; they are built that way. Our oil burners and natural gas furnaces are already very efficient; they are built that way. What more do these ‘greenies’ want? If you burn wood to heat your home, you have to cut down the forests, which ‘greenies’ don’t want us to do. So what is their ultimate goal?
Vegetarian diets are unhealthy. That is why vegetarians always look malnourished and rarely do any hard work. They are not strong enough.
Breitbart News reports: “The UNEP report shows that the over-consumption of a wealthy minority is fuelling the climate crisis, yet it is poor communities and young people who are paying the price,” said Tim Gore, head of climate policy at Oxfam, and a contributing author to the report.
“It will be practically and politically impossible to close the emissions gap if governments don’t cut the carbon footprint of the wealthy and end the inequalities which leave millions of people without access to power or unable to heat their homes.”
Nikitas3.com comment: It is the prosperity of the wealthy nations that is helping the world economy and billions of poor people around the globe. The Unites States is called ‘the economic engine of the world’. If the wealthy nations become poorer, then the whole world will. It is happening today with the pandemic.
Breitbart News reports: Elsewhere the report claimed the wealthiest one percent on the planet account for more than twice the combined emissions of the poorest 50 percent.
UNEP said this group needed to slash its carbon footprint by a factor of 30 to stay in line with the Paris targets.
Nikitas3.com comment: This number is totally unproven and it is an attack on the United States using more made-up figures. America has done more for the world than any other nation in history. This idea that we have to cut our carbon emissions by a factor of 30 is total insanity.
Nikitas3.com has long suggested that people who vote Democrat and support the ‘green’ agenda most should cut their lifestyles way back to show support for environmentalism. Yet these people habitually consume the most energy of all like the ‘green’ goons in Hollywood flying in their private jets.
Environmentalists themselves are massive energy consumers. We have all seen them drive hundreds of miles to hike up a mountain, or watched them fly to Alaska to go backpacking.
One of the terrible parts of the ‘green’ agenda is electric cars. If you want to see a disturbing video about electric cars go here. It shows what it is really like to drive an electric car and all of the problems involved. You can skip the first 2 minutes.
Religious People Surviving China Virus Best
A recent survey showed, expectedly, that religious people who have faith in God, are holding up best under the China virus. The Daily Caller reported:
Poll results show that mental health improved for only one group of people during the coronavirus pandemic, and it’s a group that Democratic lawmakers repeatedly restricted.
Only those who attended religious services weekly saw a positive change between 2019 and 2020 in how they rated their mental health, a Gallup poll found.
Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly issued orders that restrict or prohibit religious services, and the Department of Justice has pushed back against such restrictions on multiple occasions.
Gallup polled a little over a thousand Americans over the age of 18 from Nov. 5 – 19 and found that only those who attended religious services weekly saw a positive change between 2019 and 2020 in how they rated their mental health.
In 2019, 42% of Americans who attended religious services weekly rated their mental health as excellent, the poll showed. In 2020, 46% of Americans who attended religious services weekly rated their mental health as excellent — a percentage increase of four points.
No other Demographic group in the Gallup poll, which had a margin of error of ±4 percentage points and a confidence level of 95%, saw a percentage increase in rating their mental health as excellent.
The Gallup poll results are particularly striking in contrast to Democratic lawmakers’ restrictions on houses of worship. Governors and mayors across the United States have issued orders throughout the pandemic that restrict or prohibit religious services, and the Department of Justice has pushed back against such restrictions on multiple occasions.
Meanwhile the mental health of urban people (leftist atheists) seems to have deteriorated the most under the China virus. This is no surprise. These people are God-less crazies. They think that they know everything, but they in fact know nothing.
Communist Venezuela Jails Oil Company Executives
Six executives for Citgo, the US-based subsidiary of the Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA, were convicted and sentenced Thursday to more than eight years for allegations of corruption.
Six U.S. oil executives held for three years in Venezuela were convicted and sentenced to lengthy prison terms Thursday.
Known as the Citgo 6, the men are all employees of the Houston-based refining company of the same name, which is owned by Venezuela’s state oil company, PDVSA.
Five of the men, Gustavo Cárdenas, Jorge Toledo, Jose Luis Zambrano and Alirio Zambrano, and Tomeu Vadell, all U.S. citizens, were sentenced to eight years and 10 months. Jose Pereira, a permanent resident of the U.S., received 13 years, The Associated Press reports.
Thursday’s sentencing is the culmination of a saga that began Nov. 21, 2017, the day the men arrived for what they were told was a sudden business meeting in the country’s capital of Caracas. Once in the boardroom, however, military intelligence officers stormed the room. Officers demanded the men hand over passports and other identification cards, and then hauled them off to jail, the AP and the Financial Times report.
They were charged with embezzlement tied to a never-executed proposal to refinance around $4 billion of Citgo bonds. All six maintain their innocence.
You can rest assured that these people were set up by the communists who control Venezuela. These communists want to jail anyone who is not in their camp, particularly if they are Americans.
