UN Chief Boards Private Jet Immediately after Demanding Complete ‘Phaseout’ of Fossil Fuels

While attending a “climate change” conference in the Middle East, United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres demanded that countries around the world commit to a complete “phaseout” of fossil fuels.

Almost immediately after making the declaration at the COP 28 summit in oil-rich Dubai, Guterres boarded the UN’s private jet and left the same way he arrived shortly before.

Guterres was among a like-minded crowd, however, as over 70,000 other climate alarmists have jetted into Dubai for the two-week green agenda summit.

While in Dubai, the UN chief warned that “global boiling” will trigger a “total disaster” for humanity unless the general public stops using fossil fuels.

“Obviously, I am strongly in favor of language that includes (a) phaseout, even with a reasonable time framework,” Guterres said in an interview with AFP.

Some nations have already called for the COP28 final statement, which requires unanimous agreement, to explicitly call for a reduction in fossil fuel consumption.

The move would add countries’ backing to previous Guterres warnings that the planet is doomed on its current course.

That would be a historic first for a COP statement, AFP notes.

The Glasgow 2021 climate conference was only able to agree on mentioning coal.

But for Guterres, a simple promise to reduce fossil fuels would not be enough.

“I think it would be a pity if we would stay in a vague and noncommittal ‘phase-down’ whose real meaning would not be obvious for anybody,” he said.

Guterres was also asked about COP28 president Sultan Al Jaber.

The Emirati official and CEO of the national oil company has become embroiled in accusations of conflicts of interest.

The UN chief pleaded Al Jaber has a “special responsibility” to influence the fossil fuel industry.

“He is of course linked to the oil business in his activities but also linked to renewables, I think it creates with him a special responsibility,” said Guterres.
