Climate change ‘kills people’, says UN chief António Guterres

Alarmist United Nations chief António Guterres on Friday called for “drastic measures” to eliminate all fossil fuels to curb global warming.

“Climate change is not just climate change. This changes life on our planet,” Guterres said on Twitter (X). job. “It’s killing people and devastating communities.”

The UN chief did not share data on exactly who has died from “climate change” or which communities have been “devastated” by it, in line with his usual practice of a speech heavy on rhetoric and light on facts.

Instead, he got straight to the point: “To limit global temperature rise, we must phase out coal, oil and gas in a fair and equitable way – and massively boost renewable energy. »

In a video he included with his message, Guterres makes the remarkable claim that “every continent, every region and every country is feeling the heat.”

That may be true in his native Portugal, but in Greenland, where the average annual temperature is just over -17°C, feeling the heat is a luxury.

Russia, which spans the Asian and European continents, experiences an even colder annual average of -5.2ºF (-20.7ºC), meaning subzero temperatures are the norm.

Even in Canada, where the annual average sits at -6.4°C (20.6°F), it is assumed that an increase of 1.5°C would be a welcome (if insufficient) change for the better .

Presumably Mr. Guterres is also unaware that far more people die each year from the cold than from the heat.

A 2021 study published in the Lancet The medical journal said 5,083,173 deaths were associated with “non-optimal annual temperatures,” but then explained that the vast majority of those deaths were “cold-related” rather than “heat-related.”

According to Lancet, people around the world are 9.4 times more likely to die from the cold than from the heat. It adds that over the past 20 years, the heat death rate has increased slightly due to global warming (+0.21 percent), but the heat death rate has increased slightly in reason for global warming cold decreased even more significantly (-0.51 percent) during the same period.

An impartial reader could reasonably deduce that global warming has indeed lowered the overall mortality rate due to “non-optimal temperatures”.

Undeterred by the facts, Guterres then lamented that “not all leaders feel this heat.”

“Stocks are failing terribly. There is still time to keep the rise in temperatures within the limits of 1.5 degrees set by the Paris Agreement,” he insisted.

“But this now requires drastic action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ensure climate justice for those who have contributed the least to the crisis but are paying the highest price,” he added. .
