UN Debuts New Global Warming Hysteria Buzzword: ‘Climate Apartheid’
With constant global warming hysteria not frightening enough people across the world to spur a one-world government, the United Nations has invented the term “climate apartheid” to inject social justice dogma into their ongoing propaganda campaign against capitalism and industry.
Philip Alston, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, is claiming that climate change is going to disproportionately affect the poor.
“Most human rights bodies have barely begun to grapple with what climate change portends for human rights,” Alston said.
The climate apartheid refers to the supposed inequality that will emerge from dealing with the ill-effects of climate change.
The rich will be able to adapt while the poor will suffer the most, according to so-called experts.
“As a full-blown crisis that threatens the human rights of vast numbers of people bears down, the usual piecemeal, issue-by-issue human rights methodology is woefully insufficient,” Alston said.
Alston predicts that all kinds of calamity, such as unwanted migration, food shortages, rampant disease, and even death, will emerge from the climate apartheid.
“It could push more than 120 million more people into poverty by 2030,” Alston said. “Climate change threatens to undo the last 50 years of progress in development, global health, and poverty reduction.”
Alston is releasing a new report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva this week where he is re-packaging the globalist hysteria for another generation.
“The human rights community, with a few notable exceptions, has been every bit as complacent as most governments in the face of the ultimate challenge to mankind represented by climate change,” Alston’s report states.
The report goes on to do even more fear-mongering: “The steps taken by most United Nations human rights bodies have been patently inadequate and premised on forms of incremental managerialism and proceduralism which are entirely disproportionate to the urgency and magnitude of the threat. Ticking boxes will not save humanity or the planet from impending disaster.”
Alston supports drastic, unprecedented measures to solve the climate apartheid, similar to the Green New Deal proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Alston wants “deep structural changes in the world economy” to de-industrialize society with welfare benefits increased to fill the employment gaps as sustainability is achieved.
“Climate action should not be viewed as an impediment to economic growth but as an impetus for decoupling economic growth from emissions and resource extraction, and a catalyst for a green economic transition, labour rights improvements, and poverty elimination efforts,” he said.
This latest round of hocus pocus from the doomsayers is not likely to be much more effective than any of the other times they have peddled the same line, at least not in America. President Trump recently finalized new coal rules that will unleash prosperity and empower the states, and it will happen despite bureaucratic whining from any UN hack.
