Climate ‘Expert’ Claims World Has 6 Months to Avert Climate Crisis

Fatih Birol, head of the International Energy Agency, said the world has only six months to change the course of the looming climate crisis and, thereby, prevent a post-lockdown rebound in greenhouse-gas emissions that would cause a climate catastrophe. The IEA has calculated that governments are planning to spend $9-trillion globally in the next few months on rescuing their economies from COVID-19. The IEA believes that this money, or an additional amount comparable to it, should subsidize green jobs instead of bailing out high-carbon-producing companies.

The world has only six months in which to change the course of the climate crisis and prevent a post-lockdown rebound in greenhouse gas emissions that would overwhelm efforts to stave off climate catastrophe, one of the world’s foremost energy experts has warned.

“This year is the last time we have, if we are not to see a carbon rebound,” said Fatih Birol, executive director of the International Energy Agency.

Governments are planning to spend $9tn (£7.2tn) globally in the next few months on rescuing their economies from the coronavirus crisis, the IEA has calculated. The stimulus packages created this year will determine the shape of the global economy for the next three years, according to Birol, and within that time emissions must start to fall sharply and permanently, or climate targets will be out of reach.

“The next three years will determine the course of the next 30 years and beyond,” Birol told the Guardian. “If we do not [take action] we will surely see a rebound in emissions. If emissions rebound, it is very difficult to see how they will be brought down in future. This is why we are urging governments to have sustainable recovery packages.”

Carbon dioxide emissions plunged by a global average of 17% in April, compared with last year, but have since surged again to within about 5% of last year’s levels.

In a report published on Thursday, the IEA – the world’s gold standard for energy analysis – set out the first global blueprint for a green recovery, focusing on reforms to energy generation and consumption. Wind and solar power should be a top focus, the report advised, alongside energy efficiency improvements to buildings and industries, and the modernisation of electricity grids.

Creating jobs must be the priority for countries where millions have been thrown into unemployment by the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. The IEA’s analysis shows that targeting green jobs – such as retrofitting buildings to make them more energy efficient, putting up solar panels and constructing wind farms – is more effective than pouring money into the high-carbon economy.

When are these twits ever going to even look at the Truth? Man-made climate change doesn’t exist! Yes, it’s good to be aware of and do what can be done reasonably to protect our environment from severely detrimental pollution, but climate change is another thing – people, or farting cows aren’t going to produce climate change – EVER!!! This planet goes through cycles of climate change naturally, cold to hot, hot to cold. It’s been going on since the planet formed!! It will continue to do so with or without our intervention. Get the frell used to it and get… Read more »

The studies I have seen show we are headed into a mini ice age. The sun is very quiet (minimum). This happened in 1815 and 1315 and history is repeating. Global warming is a hoax perpetrated to move us into a world government. Further, as the poles gradually shift and the sun offers less magnetic protection – as will the earth’s too – we will see more polar vortices, more earthquakes and more volcanic activity. Stop with the fake science – wake up and smell the coffee!

Since its inception by leftist academia, Climate Change will remain a mental condition suffered by those known as “useful idiots”.

This is a continuation of the Marxist agenda that comrade Greta and her parents took part in, the solution to the energy issue has been around 50 years, if any of these clowns were sincere they would be moving the world towards thorium reactors.

Climate change. The climate changes all the time. It’s been doing it for millions/billions of years…6 months, we’ll have a lock-down, drag-out climate catastrophe? Really? Somehow, I don’t believe that. She just wants the money. That’s all climate change is..money for Elitists. Eventually, they’ll want taxes for breathing and drinking water. We probably already do that under some ecological bill. So.. I suggest vote… for someone with some common sense. And that is not a Democrat for sure.
