COVID's left climate activists feeling forgotten

global warming 1The UN secretary general has issued a stark warning about humanity and climate, but a skeptic says he sees right through him.

"Humanity is waging war on nature," UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in an address at Columbia University in New York. "This is suicidal. Nature always strikes back -- and it is already doing so with growing force and fury."

These sorts of comments are not necessarily new, as people have long warned that mankind's use of fossil fuels is causing warmer weather and bigger, more powerful storms.

"We are facing a devastating pandemic, new heights of global heating, new lows of ecological degradation, and new setbacks in our work towards global goals for more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable development," Guterres said. "To put it simply, the state of the planet is broken."

In response, Marc Morano of Climate Depot tells One News Now there is a jealousy among climate activists who devoted decades to fighting climate change only to have COVID-19 come along and do what activists have been seeking.

"All the same solutions to COVID-19 were what the climate activists wanted: Destroying industrial activities, lowering emissions, destroying the airline industry, stopping people from traveling, and essentially doing planned recessions through lockdowns," notes Morano.

As a result, he thinks climate activists are trying to get attention again.

Morano, Marc (Climate Depot)"They're declaring that we have a suicidal war on nature," he continues. "Secondly, there is going to be a merging of the COVID climate issue, because what's happening here. The UN is on record, John Kerry is on record claiming that because we're not taking care of nature and we're encroaching on it, that we're getting new viruses from the animal world ... and we have to prevent more viruses by fighting climate change."

Morano adds that UN Secretary General Guterres, the former president of Socialist International, is not about the science and or the environment.

"He is about his political agenda and his own ideology, which is imposing this sort of central planning on the world using an ecological scare," the Climate Depot spokesman concludes.
