U.N. Chief Guterres Demands End to Coal-Fired Power in a Reset World

The world must stop building new coal power plants and instead embrace green alternatives in a post-coronavirus reset world, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Saturday.

Speaking via video message to the East Asia Summit 2020, Guterres called on all countries to reject coal and join together in seeking other alternatives.

To that end, Guterres demanded efforts be made to “use the COVID-19 recovery effort to build green climate-resilient economies and work towards carbon neutrality by 2050.”

“This will, incidentally, also drive the job creation that will reduce inequality and address the air pollution that is choking many Asian cities. I commend the recent decisions of China, Japan and the Republic of Korea committing to net zero emissions,” the veteran Portugese socialist added.

“Countries also need to put a price on carbon and end subsidies for fossil fuels. Our response to the COVID-19 crisis must be aligned with the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals. In all these efforts, you can count on the support of the United Nations system.”

His call mirrors that by the World Economic Forum (WEF) back in July foreshadowing its desire to rebuild the world in a fashion of its own design once the coronavirus pandemic is over.

 

As Breitbart News reported, WEF founder executive chairman Klaus Schwab said the coronavirus crisis presents an opportunity for a “new kind of capitalism” and “great reset” of global economies, politics, and societies.

An impatient Schwab claimed neo-liberalism is dead and with it traditional notions of economic capitalism.

In their place is a set of “Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics” the WEF says enables the world to progress under one set of overarching rules as drawn up by it, with “social  justice” a key component of this brave new world.

This restructure of the way we do business is the new model for the “great reset” Schwab argued, adding he foresees the coronavirus crisis as too good an opportunity not to “re-evaluate sacred cows of the pre-pandemic system.”

Put simply, Schwab believes the time to “re-consider capitalism” has arrived. He adds:

The Great Reset should seek to lend a voice to those who have been left behind, so that everyone who is willing to “co-shape” the future can do so. The reset that we need is not a revolution or a shift to some new ideology… Some of the pillars of the global system will need to be replaced, and others repaired or strengthened. To achieve shared progress, prosperity, and health requires nothing more – or less.

Ulitmately Schwab says the trade, taxation, and competition rules that reflect decades of neoliberal influence are over.

More will be outlined next year at the 2021 WEF global summit in Switzerland.

    Hi StarvingLion. I also notice that the price of gasoline does not move much. Did you hear that, I am now the King of the world. Imagine that. Does the job come with a 20 year old sex toy, sorry I mean a young cunt, sorry again for my vulgar language. I guess this disqualified me as a King.

    Has all of the so called world leaders gone insane? Dumb question! Just look at some of the people posting here, as an example of the spreading insanity. It seems to mostly be in the West, and that is a very good thing.

    Poverty is because some want it all and not just their share. The US consumes more than 25% of the world’s resources with less than 5% of its population. That is what this Great Leveling/Reset is all about. Leveling the playing field. It is we;; underway and probably going to succeed, to the pain and life change of most Amerikans and Westerners. So be it. Well deserved!
