On the Brink of Disaster, Again?

On the Brink of Disaster, Again?

December 4, 2019

In 1989, the United Nations predicted that entire island nations would be wiped off the face of the earth. Today, Washington Post headlines are still reading, “In bleak report, U.N. says drastic action is only way to avoid worst effects of climate change”.

But, besides generating scary predictions and headlines, what has the U.N. actually done? As PTF has noted in Fox News, that answer is simple: meet.

With annual expenditures hovering around $50 billion, there’s plenty of money for some great meetings. And there is no other cause more worthy of international meetings than climate change.

It’s an existential threat, as the 2020 Democrat candidates have often repeated. And we only have 12 years left to fix it.  Or 11. Maybe 10. Regardless of the science, or lack thereof, one thing is certain: in order to tackle climate change, the U.N. needs a lot of meetings.

Unfortunately, there seems to be no end in sight for drastic demands followed by a lack of evidence. In fact, this trend is likely to get worse before it gets better.

The fear-mongering rhetoric on climate change will continue to ramp up during our 2020 presidential election. More politicians will call for bans on meat, on coal, on cars. You will be told to alter your life, give up your property, change your diet. And in the midst of that radical posturing, as you are told of an imminent end of civilization, remember the world leaders, the ones who care the most about the issue, the ones leading the very charge, are unable to jump on a conference call.
