The United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres is demanding a complete phase-out of fossil fuels.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) Davos 2024 conference, he said: “The phase-out of fossil fuels is essential and inevitable. No amount of… scare tactics will change that. Let’s hope it doesn’t come too late.”

Perhaps Guterres is a big fan of The Flintstones, and believes that bare feet and a running start are a suitable alternative to gasoline.
He went on to say: “But we must now act to ensure a just and equitable transition to renewable energy.”
Renewables such as wind turbines and solar farms?
The vast farming landscapes of Kansas have been destroyed by 4800 massive wind turbines—and that does not even supply half the energy needs of the 35th most populated state. Additionally, these monstrosities kill literally thousands of birds each year, including eagles. Mere possession of a single feather from any bird of prey carries Federal prison time for ordinary citizens. Yet “green” energy companies are permitted to kill thousands of them without consequence thanks to the massive turbine blades on their dystopic windmills. At no point in his speech did Guterres address this ugly side of the ”renewables” balance sheet.
Efforts to produce renewable energy in Texas have proved inefficient and prohibitively expensive. The reason: wind turbines don’t work very well when it’s not windy, and solar farms do poorly when it’s cloudy. Who knew?
Climate change is believed by those who lack critical thinking skills and do not question the claims of self-proclaimed experts. None of its doomsday predictions have ever come true, so the chief persuasion tactic is to characterize any catastrophic natural event as being caused by “climate change”.
Hurricane season predictably brings out assertions of “climate change” as a cause for powerful storms. That does not stand up to basic scrutiny. Two conditions are required for large circular storms to arise. One is a low-friction engine to drive the storm, and that is why they form on the ocean. The second is a significant temperature difference between Tropical air masses and Arctic air masses, which causes the circulation when these two meet.
The CO2-induced “greenhouse” effect predicted by “global warming” would result in more uniform worldwide temperatures, so hurricanes would be very weak if they formed at all. If there were no temperature difference between the Arctic and the Tropics, there would be no hurricanes. The upshot is that the existence of strong hurricanes actually disproves “global warming”.
Hurricanes occur every year, and have done so prior to the use of fossil fuels, yet the population at large has fallen victim to “gaslighting” efforts to convince them otherwise.
Destructive fires have also occurred for literally thousands of years, as anyone living in Nero’s’ Rome could attest. Yet, people have been persuaded that only “climate change” brings about forest fires. If “climate change” were solved, perhaps forests would never burn, even from campfire embers carelessly left burning or lit cigarettes thoughtlessly discarded.
The documentary “The Great Global Warming Swindle” debunks Guterres’ fossil fuels claims quite thoroughly.
It is doubtful that anyone in attendance at the Marxist-leaning WEF echo chamber challenged Guterres with the one question that climate fear-mongers cannot answer: If “climate change” were solved, what would the average worldwide temperature be and how would weather patterns be different?
More likely Guterres would leave in a private gas-powered jet airplane without giving an answer.
