UN climate chief seeks ‘fundamental, transformative changes’ to ‘combat climate change’
The UN climate chief, Patricia Espinosa, urged the world “to make the fundamental, transformative changes necessary” to fight “global warming.” Espinosa delivered her speech on July 5 as part of Pope Francis’ climate summit at the Vatican. Espinosa, the Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change was part of the Vatican’s International Conference entitled “Saving our Common Home and the Future of Life on Earth.”
“If we truly want to make the fundamental, transformative changes necessary to combat climate change, perhaps what we need then is not a physical ark, but an ark of ambition for #climateaction,” Espinosa tweeted on July f4, 2018.
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, a climate skeptic, responded to Espinosa on twitter: “What if we don’t want to make your suggested ‘fundamental, transformative changes necessary to combat climate change’? So sad the Vatican is once again hosting the UN’s anti-human “solutions” to “global warming.'”
Espinosa, the executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, echoed the former UN climate chief Christiana Figueres who called for a “centralized transformation’ that is ‘going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different.”
In her July 5 Vatican speech, the current UN chief Espinosa compared the climate change fight to Noah’s Ark:
I want to begin by discussing a narrative that is common to many cultures and faith communities throughout the world. It’s the story of a great flood that took place long ago. While different cultures tell it in different ways, most outline how humankind not only had warning that rising waters were coming, but that those warnings were ignored. Now, let me be clear: I don’t propose we begin building an ark—at least not a physical one—but it’s hard to ignore some parallels with today. Every day we are seeing evidence of climate change and its devastating impacts on populations around the globe.
“Climate change, and our response to it, raises larger questions about who we are, why we’re here, and where we’re collectively going. Climate change is about morality: who are we to willingly destroy the ancient and intricate beauty of the world? Climate change is about legacy: who are we to leave a debt of neglect to an unborn generation?”
… “We’re at a critical point in history. Our window of opportunity is rapidly closing and we must work together to turn things around.”
“We must significantly accelerate global climate ambition before 2020. While we’ve seen progress by both government and non-government bodies, it’s not nearly enough…The Paris Agreement is the product of such unity. It represents our path forward, our guiding light. It has everything we need to address climate change. But we must unleash its potential—and that’s where we need your help.”

UN climate chief Christiana Figueres steps down – Lamented U.S. democracy as ‘very detrimental’ – Sought ‘centralized transformation’ – Lauded one-party ruled China for ‘doing it right’ on climate – Climate Depot Statement: ‘Figueres legacy will be one of central planning, limiting development for the world’s poor, creation of climate slush funds, appeals to climate claims and ‘solutions’ that would make medieval witch accusers blush. The world can smile today that Figueres will soon be out of power.’
