Premierboris Johnson took advantage of his speech at the UN General Assembly to urge politicians to "listen to the alert of scientists" before the climate crisis, at the foul of 40 days for the celebration of COP26 of Glasgow. "Look what happened with the Covid if you want an example of how the grocery predictions of scientists have been true and to understand who we are and what we are doing," Johnson warned.
"COP26 must be the turning point for humanity," proclaimed the conservative leader, who compared the world attitude towards the climate crisis with that of "an impetuous 16-year-old teenager looking for problems". Johnson himself confessed this week to have been a skeptic of the climate in the past and defended the right to change his mind.
The Premier had to leave the criticisms against his new secretary of International Trade, Ann-Marie Trevelyan, who came to attack on social networks "against apocalyptic and fans" of the climate and to ensure that "global warming is not happening ".
Johnson celebrated on Monday a conclave of world leaders in New York to promote funding to vulnerable countries with 100,000 million dollars (85,000 million euros). The Premier acknowledged that there are only 60% of possibilities to reach that it is considered as the second great objective of COP26, after the commitments for emission reduction.
In his intervention to the UN, Johnson pulled his peculiar metaphoric pumper and compared the fragility of the earth with "the shell of an egg with a whisper of atmosphere", in contrast to the idea of the "indestructible toy against which we can launch "with which he tried to illustrate the adolescent behavior of humanity.
"We have come at that age of the destination in which we know practically how to drive and how to open the beverage closet and participate in all kinds of activities that can be potentially embarrassing and even terminals," Johnson warned, in the middle of rhetoric, with References as diverse as sophocles or frog Gustavo de los Teleecos ("It is not easy to be green").
"We believe that someone else will come to clean up the mess we have created because it is what others have done so far," added the Premier. "We are destroying our habitats again and again with the inductive reasoning that we have waged so far, and that we will therefore follow ourselves to get rid."
"My friends, the adolescence of humanity is coming to an end," he concluded in an unusual speech that was viralized in the networks. "We must unite at the time of collectively reaching the age of majority."Date Of Update: 23 September 2021, 14:39
