CLINTEL Challenges World Leaders, ‘Fight the Virus not Carbon, Improve Global Health System’

Printable version / Version imprimable

EIRNS—Guus Berkhout, the president of CLINTEL, today issued a letter to world leaders, signed by all the CLINTEL ambassadors, urging world leaders to take the COVID-19 pandemic as a very serious health crisis, coming at a bad time when people need a hopeful future. Meanwhile, it is totally inappropriate and irresponsible that the multitrillion-dollar Green New Deal focused on climate is still on the agenda for some leaders.

Climate change is a non-problem, based on using politicized computer models to terrify the world population for 40 years! There is an emergency now, but it is COVID, not the climate.

The past 150 years show that affordable and reliable energy is key to proper housing, health, sanitation, education and prosperity. Furthermore, CO₂ increases crop yields for a hungry world! We must not go backwards! As a very first step, you should redirect the money allocated to the Green New Deal into significantly improving the global health system. [rss]
