The U.N. chief warned at the World Economic Forum gathering on Wednesday that the world is in a “sad situation” due to numerous interconnected problems like climate change and Russia’s conflict in Ukraine that are “piling up like automobiles in a chain reaction crash.”
On the second day of the exclusive gathering of global leaders and corporate executives in the Swiss ski lodge of Davos, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres gave his somber speech.
He called climate change an “existential threat” and claimed that efforts to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius were “almost going up in smoke.”
Despite the violence being fought fewer than 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) from Davos, Guterres was pessimistic that it would end soon.
“This battle will come to an end. The end of everything is ahead. But I don’t think the battle will end very soon,” he remarked. It is more challenging to establish a solution based on international law that respects territorial integrity when there are significant historical differences between Ukraine and Russia he continued.
“In the short term,” Guterres stated, “I don’t think that we have a possibility to advocate or mediate a genuine discussion to establish peace at this time.”
But that’s what the major news outlets said!
The quiet passage was spoken loud by Antonio Guterres and was recorded on camera.
He had a lot of confidence in it!
In the video, he counsels elected officials to take controversial actions now since they will be crucial in determining how the people will feel in the future.
He’s saying to disregard the voters and force them to submit to your wishes.
They’re already doing it; that’s simply the silent part out loud. We may have waited decades to consider this. A government doesn’t have to act as if it owes you anything if it becomes strong enough. You are no longer a citizen, but a subject.
