The latest UN scare-tactics.."Four months to secure the future of our planet." "We need leadership of the very highest order"

Entire speech here - http://www.un.org/apps/news/infocus/sgspeeches/statments_ful...

Here are some sections of the speech that I find particularly interesting.

It should make itself a model of international engagement on climate change. Climate change, as all previous speakers have already stated, is the fundamental threat to humankind.

It exacerbates all of the problems we face: poverty, disease, hunger and insecurity. It impedes progress toward the Millennium Development Goals. It deepens the food and energy crises.

That is the harsh reality.

But there is an upside: if we combat climate change with a sustainable, low-emissions approach, just like we see around us in Songdo, we can change the way countries develop.

We can foster a green economy and green growth.

We can fight hunger and poverty while protecting the environment.

The downside is equally dramatic.

If we fail to act, climate change will intensify droughts, floods and other natural disasters.

Water shortages will affect hundreds of millions of people. Malnutrition will engulf large parts of the developing world. Tensions will worsen. Social unrest – even violence – could follow.

The damage to national economies will be enormous. The human suffering will be incalculable.

We have the power to change course. But we must do it now.

As we move toward Copenhagen in December, we must “Seal a Deal” on climate change that secures our common future. I'm glad that the Chairman of the forum and many other speakers have used my campaign slogan “Seal the Deal” in Copenhagen. I won't charge them loyalty. Please use this “Seal the Deal” as widely as possible, as much as you can. We must seal the deal in Copenhagen for the future of humanity.

We have just four months. Four months to secure the future of our planet.

Any agreement must be fair, effective, equitable and comprehensive, and based on science. And it must help vulnerable nations adapt to climate change.
Ladies and gentlemen,

The science is clear. We know what to do and we know how to do it. Songdo shows us the way.

What is needed is the political will. We have the capacity. We have finance.(Really?) We have the technology. The largest lacking is political will. That is why I will convey some meetings focused on climate change. I have invited all the leaders of the world including President Lee.

Two years ago, only a handful of world leaders could talk about climate change.

Today, leaders of all the world, all the countries on every continent are aware of the threats we face now.

This is great progress, for we need leadership of the very highest order.

Developing countries, especially the most vulnerable, will collectively need billions of dollars in public financing for adaptation.

I am talking here about new money – not re-packaged Official Development Assistance. This is one of the most important issues which we are going to discuss on September 22nd in New York, and this year again at the G20 Summit Meeting in Pittsburgh on September 24th.

Fourth, we need an equitable and accountable mechanism for distributing these financial and technological resources, taking into account the views of all countries in decision-making.

Accomplishing all of this requires tough decisions. It will take flexibility and hard work to negotiate the most difficult issues.

Trust between developed and developing countries is essential.

question

why doesn't wars and atomic/nuclear bombs, testing, military industrial complex figure in the science of global warming?

I saw that too. The planet

I saw that too. The planet has been getting warmer for 800 years, but now we have four months to put an end to that nonsense.

This is good news!

In four months if nothing is done we don't need to discuss the "problem" anymore. Gore's Folly will end.

No this is not good news,

No this is not good news, Gore is just one of the main puppets in this.

It's going to be pushed and pushed

Cool.

I guess in 4 months and a day (or two) the globe will just explode in a dazzling ball of flame if they can't agree on how much more to tax the population of Earth for the right to breathe?

You're wrong...

it's HOT ;)

I think in 4 months and a day the world will IMPLODE. That will be much more interesting. Then we will have a little black hole to get sucked into and that will lead us to an alternate universe where we will ultimately meet the true rulers of the universe - the Illumicati!

oop

You have a point! IMPLODE.. kinda like the world trade center buildings did.. that makes much more sense!

Didn't we already figure out that the Illumicati are in turn run by mice, tho?

Them whacky grey figures behind the curtain... I keep losing track of who is who... :)

~Live life to its fullest, with an open heart, open arms and most important... an open mind~

You are correct...

but we get to meet the rulers in step, like rungs of a ladder. The Hopi believe that this is the fourth world incarnation. Maybe we are moving from fourth backward through third to the first. I wonder who we will find out is ruling the mice! Possibly the omnipotent "Block 'O Cheese!" or maybe the massive "Universal Mousetrap", or in a twist of fate so surreal it could never be imagined, the "Plastic Diving Man" from the game Mousetrap - now that would be the ultimate end of the rabbithole!

But if the world does explode, I hope it sounds like the explosions when Jangofett is dropping those sonic mines in the asteroid field trying to kill Obi-Wan. That would at least leave us with a nifty ending. BuuWWWaaaannngggg!

And,

That's what happens, you know.

Just don't start...

It's the most important

It's the most important thing to do, add more taxes and fear into the small and middle class. Weed out the weak ones.

It's a game, some of the puppets just don't realize they are playing it.
