UN General Assembly convenes with focus on climate change despite real threat of WW III

In a busy week for global geopolitics, world leaders will travel to New York City for the 77th United Nations General Assembly where climate change will top the agenda at a time when the entire planet has been engulfed in crisis after crisis including COVID, war, famine and growing unease over tensions between China and Taiwan.

Once they pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II whose funeral is being held in the U.K. on Monday, the western world’s political elite will board their private jets for the trip across the pond for the first in-person gathering since the onset of the pandemic; for the last two years, the speeches have been delivered virtually.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres kicked off the big event with remarks on recent natural disasters including last month’s flash flooding in Pakistan in which over 1,000 people lost their lives.

Guterres ripped the international community over what he called “sheer inadequacy” in dealing with climate change, calling for all countries and especially the powerful group of nations in the G20 to “boost their natural emissions reduction [targets].”

“My message to world leaders gathering here is clear. Lower the temperature now,” he demanded. “Don’t flood the world today. Don’t drown it tomorrow.”

“The war in Ukraine is devastating a country and dragging down the global economy,” Guterres said, one of only a few fleeting remarks regarding the “conflict and unrest” raging across the world.

Not expected to be present at the gathering of leaders is Russian President Vladimir Putin, the proverbial elephant in the living room whose presence will nonetheless be felt with many speeches expected to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

There will also be dictators and their representatives in attendance, “Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov plan to attend despite calls for the U.S. to reject visa applications for both officials,” according to Fox News.

In addition to full-blown despots, two North American leaders whose reigns have been marked by authoritarianism are slated to be in attendance as both President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister will be in New York this week, with Biden slated to address the body.

Appearing remotely will be Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy who will seek to rally global support against Putin and Russia in a pre-taped address that will air later this week.

The focus on climate change – the pet project of the globalist elite – risks downplaying the very serious threat that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine could escalate into World War III and a nuclear conflagration that could potentially kill billions and adversely affect the atmosphere far more than pollution belched from smokestacks and flatulent cows.

The danger of such an escalation just grew greater with reports that the Russians have struck a nuclear power plant in Southern Ukraine as explosions erupted at the Pivdennoukrainsk plant in the Mykolaiv region with one blast “taking place just 300 yards away from the reactors, breaking more than 100 windows in the complex,” the Daily Mail reported, “posting a video of the attack which damaged power plant buildings, a nearby hydroelectric power plant and transmission lines.”

The very real threat of a planetary apocalypse if the war spreads from Ukraine doesn’t seem to be a top priority of the UN, only serving to provide additional fodder to those who have criticized the global body as being irrelevant.

One expert, The Henry Jackson Society’s executive director Alan Mendoza suggested that while some UN agencies are “highly valuable,” others “do not live up to the ideals of the organization.”

“It’s often said that if the UN didn’t exist, it would have to be invented,” Mendoza told Fox News Digital. “While some individual U.N. agencies are highly valuable, others like the Human Rights Council are a disgrace, and the organization as a whole only functions on a lowest common denominator basis.”

“This means that oppressive and authoritarian states can always prevent the free world from defending our values, and means the U.N. will fade into increasing irrelevance given the pressing need to stand up for what we believe in,” he added.
