The G-7, the group of most industrialized countries on the planet, held an important summit since Friday, from which it expected to approve a historic tax agreement on corporations.
In this face-to-face meeting, that lasted three days and that was held in the United Kingdom, António Guterres Secretary General of the United Nations participated as a guest to coordinate the United Nation’s agenda for the world.
Guterres conveyed two clear messages to the leaders of the G-7: the need to guarantee vaccination against covid-19 to all the inhabitants of the planet and the obligation of the most developed countries to fulfill their economic promises so that the poorest regions can combat the effects of global warming.
“It is a question of justice”, he maintained about that climate aid that developed countries “must provide”. Guterres added that “If we look at the current impacts of climate change, it is already the developing countries, the African countries, the small island states, that are paying the highest price.”
In this globalist agenda, the G7 and the UN have included the Establishment media, among them, the British newspaper The Guardian and the American network NBC News through a project called Covering Climate Now, a globalist propaganda machine that is made up of climate change alarmists who aim to infect the minds of their audiences on climate change fear-mongering.
“It is fair that there is compensation for the impacts that already exist and that are dramatic,” he added that climate change is the responsibility is the richest countries and in doing so he attacked capitalism, the one single development system that has brought health, prosperity and wealth to billions of people.
Those promises of aid to developing areas were included in the Paris Agreement, signed in December 2015, which not only seeks to keep the policies that they believe will revert the “catastrophic effects of rising temperatures”.
The Paris Accord also aims for the richest states to help the poorest to reduce their emissions and adapt to the impacts of warming. All of these beliefs have been widely debunked, but continue to be the tip of the spear for globalism and globalists.
The commitment was that from the countries with the most resources, 100 billion dollars would be mobilized annually to poorer countries, beginning in 2020. “That has not happened,” says Guterres.
“We still need to increase the financing commitments of developed countries in the public part, not to mention the private one, by between 20 and 30 billions dollars,” said the UN Secretary General.
Finding out the level of funding that has been reached is really complicated and generates a lot of debate. The OECD, which represents the interests of donor countries, released a study at the end of 2020 in which it claimed that in 2018, 78.9 billion dollars in climate finance had been reached.
That amount includes direct public aid, loans of all kinds, private investments and a report by the NGO Oxfam also at the end of last year greatly lowered the real value of this aid – up to 20 billion dollars.
“The problem lies in clarifying how the private party contributes, but the OECD report, which in globalist halls is a credible institution” -even though it is a club of rich countries- “shows that we are still far from complying with what has been promised and that it is necessary to clarify the way in which the Paris commitment will be fulfilled,” said Guterres.
That is exactly what he demanded of the G-7 leaders: to clarify “the way in which the 100,000 million dollars a year are going to be mobilized for mitigation and also for adaptation.”
Capitalism is the culprit
The fact that the promised funds arrive is a question of “justice”, but it is also a way to “restore confidence between developed countries and emerging economies. It is not enough for developed countries to commit to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, as they are doing.
Emerging economies need to do so as well, Guterres claimed. But to do so, he said, it is absolutely essential to restore trust with these emerging economies and show that the developed world is going to meet its financial commitments. And he added: “Without the restoration of this confidence it will not be easy for emerging economies to commit to achieving net zero emissions and that commitment is essential. Without China, without India, without Brazil, without South Africa, without Indonesia, without these countries we will not achieve carbon neutrality in 2050″.
The decarbonization movement intends to remove fossil fuels from developed economies and negate access to such fuels to poor and developing countries, even. though the greatest measurable contribution from carbon has been the mass greening of the planet, which in turn provides a long list of benefits for humanity; among them, food abundance and cleaner air.
The UN Secretary General applauded the return of the United States to the “climate fight” and the new goals of that country to reduce its emissions. “They represent an extremely important development because we now have around 70% of global emissions covered by net zero emissions commitments.”
Guterres argued that the US must make a greater effort, precisely, in climate finance: “It needs to go clearly above, I would say, more than double the commitments it has already made.”
Merchants of fear and the removal of CO₂
Guterres believes that the fiscal pact that is expected to be closed at this summit is a step in the right direction. “It is unacceptable to verify that some of the large multinational companies, especially in the technological areas, practically do not pay taxes when their profits have risen in a brutal way with the pandemic,” adds the head of the UN. This is true, but what cannot be passed as truth is that capitalism and corporate contribution to humanity should be punishable with taxes. Why? Simply because money that is paid in taxes is not invested in mode innovation and development.
In addition, Guterres believes that this pact can open the door for a price to be set on international carbon dioxide, that is, an instrument that burdens emissions. In reality, however, carbon pricing is a scheme to license environmental pollution that allows countries and corporations of all entities to pay their way to continue polluting, not cleaning the environment.
“I hope that an international agreement is possible before COP26 in Glasgow,” he said, “and that an agreement on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement is possible at COP26 to allow the global creation of a carbon market ”, said Guterres.
He advocates putting measures in place to make this “carbon price and even a carbon tax fiscally neutral”. He wants to create a carbon tax but also to reduce especially income taxes that have to do with work, with wages,” which in theory seems a likable position if you don’t take into account that such income will be worthless as energy prices and food prices rise as a consequence of energy being much more expensive.
If the two things are done at the same time, it is possible that there is an acceptance on the part of the society. If one only taxes the carbon, there may be rejection, it is necessary to be smart. Taxing carbon should not be done to increase public revenue”.
“If we put the price on carbon and stop subsidizing fossil fuels, many of the investments that are still being made with a recovery perspective linked to fossil fuels, obviously, will not be profitable,” he believes.
The G-7 intends to stop financing coal-fired electricity generation projects with public funds both inside and outside their borders, according to what the ministers agreed of the Environment in May.
“Coal is still the worst problem we face and many countries are still addicted to coal; we have to create the conditions for a transition from coal to renewable energy, ”says Guterres. “We call for the elimination to be complete in 2030 for the OECD countries and in 2040 for the rest of the world.”
But, as Guterres acknowledged, this will not be enough and it is also necessary to target oil and natural gas. If you want to understand the kind of negative impact this measures will have, understand that both natural gas and oil are the top two sources of energy that feed the world, so to speak. Not one and neither two or three alternative energy sources combined can do the same oil and natural gas can. That is to say, if these plans come to pass, we are talking about the complete and total destruction of Western society as we know it.
“Continuing to exploit new projects, in my opinion, does not make any sense,” he said of a recent report by the International Energy Agency that advocated that governments not authorize new oil and gas exploitations in order to comply with the Paris Agreement. That is exactly what Joe Biden did in the United States by cancelling the XL Pipeline.
“Today, there is a conscience that is in civil society, that is in cities, that is increasingly in the business world and in the financial world, which in my opinion also has to mobilize governments”.
