As part of a plan to supposedly “fight climate change,” the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has called on governments around the world to begin punishing members of the public for using energy.
IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, an unelected bureaucrat, is demanding that sovereign nations implement new carbon taxes to punish citizens for their alleged role in the so-called “climate crisis.”
Georgieva made the call during a fearmongering address at the United Nations COP28 climate summit in Dubai.
Globalists from around the world have been flying to the United Arab Emirates on private jets to attend the two-week green agenda conference.
The main topic of conversation for the summit has focused on drastically lowering the standard of living for members of the general public in order to “fight global warming.”
The efforts proposed by green agenda advocates for meeting the “Net Zero” goals of the World Economic Forum (WEF) will cost taxpayers trillions of dollars per year, as King Charles noted.
As Slay News reported, Charles is expecting taxpayers to cough up $5 trillion every year to meet the WEF’s targets.
According to IMF chief Georgieva, one way to squeeze citizens for more cash is to punish them for their “carbon footprint.”
“We are very keen to give the biggest possible incentive for decarbonization, which is putting a price on carbon,” Georgieva said at the summit.
“That price needs to go up, up, up if we are to speed up decarbonization.”
The IMF boss also tried to justify carbon taxes by saying they would raise revenues for governments.
“We are a huge proponent of carbon price,” she said.
COP28 – The head of the IMF backing calls for Carbon consumption charges.
This will increase all consumer pricing, and paves the way for the ‘conspiracy theory’ of personal carbon allowances.
Only the rich will retain their lifestyles🔥

However, Georgieva’s bold statement appears to indicate that only the rich will be allowed to maintain their current lifestyles if the globalists get their way on “climate change” policies.
The attendees at the summit appeared to reflect that in their hypocritical private jet use.
According to Simple Flying, the UN’s “climate change” conference, will have the highest carbon footprint in history due to the number of private jets arriving for the event, which runs from November 30 to December 12.
Unprecedented numbers of private jets have been spotted at Dubai International Airport during COP28, raising concerns about the conference’s environmental impact.
Despite the focus on sustainability, world leaders attending COP28, including the British PM, have chosen to travel on private jets, although some claim to use sustainable aviation fuel.
The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) will have history’s most significant carbon footprint. With almost 100,000 attendees, it surpassed the conference held in Egypt last year, with just 49,000 delegates.
A quick search on Flightradar24 has spotted several private jets bound for the United Arab Emirates, including a Bombardier Global 7500 from Nigeria, an Embraer Legacy 650E from Switzerland, a Gulfstream IV from Japan, and a Dassault Falcon 7X from India.
There was widespread outrage when British PM Rishi Sunak noted he would be traveling to COP28 onboard his private jet, with King Charles III and Foreign Secretary David Cameron doing likewise.
All of the top British officials travel to the event separately.
However, perhaps the most egregious climate hypocrisy was expressed by the head of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres.
Almost immediately after making the statement, Guterres boarded the UN’s private jet and left the same way he arrived.
Given that Dubai International Airport is one of the world’s most connected, none of the attendees have explained why they couldn’t consider commercial carriers.
