The United Nations is demanding powers to allow the unelected globalist organization’s scientists to dictate global “climate policy” to sovereign nations.
The calls come after scientists at the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have complained about the slow pace at which governments are c0mplying with the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) “Net Zero” agenda.
Five lead authors of IPCC reports told the Guardian that scientists should be given the right to make policy prescriptions.
Potentially, the UN scientists will be awarded new powers to oversee the implementation of green agenda regulations by the 195 states signed up to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
If awarded the new powers, UN scientists would be able to demand that nations around the world initiate a “phaseout” of fossil fuels to fall in line with “Net Zero.”
The UN’s demand came after it emerged that the United Arab Emirates had been planning to use its position as COP28 host to strike oil and gas deals.
Sonia Seneviratne, an IPCC Vice-Chair and coordinating lead author since 2012, said:
“At some point, we need to say that if you want to achieve this aim set by policymakers then certain policies need to be implemented.
“As climate change becomes worse and worse, it is becoming more difficult to be policy relevant without being prescriptive.”
Scientists should be able to call for fossil fuel cuts and “phaseouts,” she claims.
The discrepancy between IPCC science and action on the ground was “very difficult for us to understand as scientists because it doesn’t seem to make any sense,” she argues.
Gert-Jan Nabuurs, a coordinating lead author on three IPCC reports, said:
“The IPCC’s critical, independent and guiding roles seem to be less and less evident.
“As they decline, countries seem to be exerting a larger and larger influence.”
The problem for authors was that “we can’t be policy prescriptive, so we can’t make hard statements on what should be done”, he said.
Nabuurs questioned the value of continuing to produce assessment reports when “we already know that in five to six years’ time the message is not going to be very different, the problem will still be there, emissions will still be going up, there will be more evidence of impacts and less time to try to stay under 2°C [of heating above pre-industrial levels].”
The UN claims that greenhouse gas emissions are on track to rise by 9% by 2030.
Emissions would need to fall by 43% by the decade’s end to meet the WEF’s goal, as outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement, of capping global heating at 1.5°C.
As Slay News reported, meeting these “Net Zero” goals would cost taxpayers $75 trillion, analysis has shown.
It would also require that members of the general public drastically reduce their quality of life.
People would need to stop traveling, eat insect-based “foods” instead of meat, live in “mud huts,” surrender freedom and privacy, stop reproducing, and pay massive taxes to contribute to the “greater good” in order to meet these goals.
