Oh look, the UN's climate chief says we once again have 2 years to save the world from climate change or whatever
· Apr 25, 2024 · NottheBee.com

Folks, we all know it: The climate doomsayers have been regularly predicting, like clockwork, for decades, that we only have a scant number of years left until it's too late to save the world from climate change.

You'd think at a certain point this would just get to be too embarrassing. I mean right? Don't you think shame should kick in at some point? Isn't there a failsafe mechanism for this kind of lunacy?

Well, unfortunately, I must inform you that it is not stopping and indeed seems to be getting worse:

Humanity has only two years left "to save the world" by making dramatic changes in the way it spews heat-trapping emissions and it has even less time to act to get the finances behind such a massive shift, the head of the United Nations climate agency said.

It's two years now, folks. Not 10 years, not five — just a measly two!

If all we have is two years then I really need to start busting out the fake meat so I can do my part!

United Nations executive climate secretary Simon Stiell admitted the warning "may sound melodramatic." (That, of course, is an horrific understatement.) But the world "still [has] a chance to make greenhouse gas emissions tumble" before the newly instituted 2025 deadline, he says.

Not everyone is happy with this kind of hysterical display:

"‘Two years to save the world' is meaningless rhetoric — at best, it's likely to be ignored, at worst, it will be counterproductive," said Princeton University climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer, who is also a professor of international affairs.

"At best, it's likely to be ignored."

People are going to ignore this stuff no matter how you present it. The message of climate activists for decades has been: "Give up everything that makes modern life pleasant, convenient, healthy and decent, all in order to save the world from a phenomenon that keeps not happening no matter how many times we say it's about to happen."

Nobody's going to pay attention to that. We stopped listening to it years ago.

One climate bigwig, meanwhile, actually seems to think we have six years, not two:

"We need to see a massive strengthening of action now - faster ramping up of renewables, electric vehicles and batteries - if we're to get serious reductions by 2030. The longer we wait, the more it will cost."

Six years, two years — I'm not sweating it either way!
