UN Decrees “Carbon Budget” for Humanity

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) formally called for humanity to submit to a planetary “carbon budget” supposedly aimed at stopping potential future temperature increases.

 

Despite the now-infamous lack of global warming for the last 17 years in defiance of all United Nations climate theories and predictions, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) formally called for humanity to submit to a planetary “carbon budget” supposedly aimed at stopping potential future temperature increases. The UN “budget,” based on the findings of its widely ridiculed Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), would drastically limit man-made CO2 emissions — and therefore energy use and economic activity — by empowering a global climate regime to rule over humanity.

The supposed “science” underpinning the agenda is crumbling. As numerous independent experts forecast global cooling due to decreasing solar activity, however, the UN IPCC report doubled down on what numerous climate scientists described as its “alarmism.” For the first time, the global body calculated a “carbon budget” for humanity, which it claims must be adhered to in order to offer a “50 percent” chance of keeping global warming below two degrees Celsius. The UN claims that anything over its dubious target could lead to the “most dangerous” effects of global warming.

“Limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions,” claims the IPCC “summary for policy makers” report, which was released in Stockholm last week. Of course, the demands did not point out that humanity’s emissions of CO2 — an essential gas for plant life that is exhaled by all humans — represent just a fraction of one percent of the greenhouse gases present naturally in the atmosphere.  

“Limiting the warming caused by anthropogenic CO2 emissions alone with a probability of >33 per cent, >50 per cent, and >66 per cent to less than 2°C since the period 1861–1880, will require cumulative CO2 emissions from all anthropogenic [man-made] sources to stay between 0 and about 1560 GtC [gigatons of carbon], 0 and about 1210 GtC, and 0 and about 1000 GtC since that period respectively,” the summary claims. “An amount of 531 [446 to 616] GtC, was already emitted by 2011.”

To enforce its vision, the UN and its allies hope to finally secure a planetary treaty creating the carbon regime by 2015. Despite the best efforts of international bureaucrats and more than a few national governments, previous attempts at foisting the UN-run scheme on humanity have failed. However, even as the latest IPCC report is attacked by top scientists as “hilarious” and even “dangerous,” it has become clear that the UN climate establishment does not plan to give up on its machinations just yet.
