U.N. Declares 'No Return to Fossil Fuels' Despite Energy Crisis

As the world grapples with an unprecedented energy crisis, the U.N declared there would be no return to fossil fuels despite coming winter shortages and soaring prices.

Following Russia’s reduction of gas supplies to Europe amid the invasion of Ukraine, fuel prices are now soaring, while supply chain issues are also impacting.

Deputy U.N. rights chief Nada Al Nashif said, despite those travails, “There is no room for backtracking in the face of the ongoing climate crisis.”

Nashif also claimed the devastating floods affecting more than 33 million people in Pakistan are an example of climate as a result of using fossil fuels.

“How many more tragedies of this sort do we need before the urgency of the moment jolts us into action?” she pleaded.

Al Nashif acknowledged soaring energy prices in Europe “threaten to impact the most vulnerable as winter approaches.”

Al Nashif pointed out “some E.U. member states are turning to investments in fossil fuels infrastructure and supplies” and declared they must stop.

“While that impulse is understandable, I urge the E.U. and its member states to consider the long-term consequences of locking in more fossil fuel infrastructure,” she declared.

“It is essential to accelerate the development of energy efficiency projects and renewables.”

Al Nashif urged all countries “to seek an ambitious outcome” at the next U.N. climate conference, COP27, set down for Egypt in November.

She said they should seek to “address loss and damage and meet and increase climate finance commitments, ” noting claims for financial redress will be on the table.

Even as the U.N. looks toward Europe and scolds any potential return to fossil fuel as a power source, elsewhere, nothing has changed.

Last week, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that in the future, the United States would soon rely on “the wind, sun, and other clean sources of energy” – not oil and gas.

Yellen cited the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act in her remarks during her visit trip to Detroit, Michigan.

“Our plan — powered by the Inflation Reduction Act — represents the largest investment in fighting climate change in our country’s history,” Yellen told the crowd.

“It will put us well on our way toward a future where we depend on the wind, sun, and other clean sources of energy.”

“We will rid ourselves from our current dependence on fossil fuels and the whims of autocrats like [Russian President Vladimir] Putin,” Yellen added.

The simple fix is take away ALL the natural fuel cars from the so-called .. ” Diplomats” at the UN and make them take public transit ( deadly and dangerous) or a EV.. practice what you preach. Shortly thereafter, they would drop these absurd demands

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
