According to the Boston Globe, the United Nations has issued a new climate “tipping
point” by which the world must act to avoid dangerous global warming.
The Boston Globe noted on April 16, 2014: “The world now has a rough deadline for
action on climate change. Nations need to take aggressive action in the next 15 years
to cut carbon emissions, in order to forestall the worst effects of global warming,
says the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.”
Once again, the world is being warned of an ecological or climate “tipping point”
by the UN.
In 1989, the UN was once again trying to sell their “tipping point” rhetoric to the
public. See: U.N. Warning of 10-Year ‘Climate Tipping Point’ Began in 1989 – Excerpt:
According to July 5, 1989, article in the Miami Herald, the then-director of the
New York office of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Noel Brown, warned
of a “10-year window of opportunity to solve” global warming. According to the 1989
article, “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped
off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not
reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus
of ‘eco-refugees,’ threatening political chaos.” (LINK) & (LINK)
Not to be outdone by the UN, Former Irish President Mary Robinson weighed in this
week, issuing a more generous 20 year tipping point. “Former president says we have
20 years to save the world from climate change effects…Robinson calls for climate
agreement by 2015.” Robinson noted that global leaders have “at most two decades
to save the world”.
