Bombshell: UN Official Claims World Instability Caused By Climate Change

The world could sink into chaos while sparking migration crises along with scarce food supply, political disorder, and war if an agreement on trans-national climate controls is not reached by the Cop26 summit in Glasgow, wared a top U.N. climate official on Sunday.

The depressing prediction came from Patricia Espinosa, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, before the convention opening on November 1.

Her warnings come as 30,000 people from 197 different countries prepare to fly to the meeting:

We’re really talking about preserving the stability of countries, preserving the institutions that we have built over so many years, preserving the best goals that our countries have put together.

The catastrophic scenario would indicate that we would have massive flows of displaced people.

If the attendees fail to heed the U.N. warnings, the Mexican politician and diplomat painted a darker picture. She said the impact would cascade, adding: “It would mean less food, so probably a crisis in food security. It would leave a lot more people vulnerable to terrible situations, terrorist groups, and violent groups. It would mean a lot of sources of instability.”

“It doesn’t only speak to the environmental side. It is also about the whole system we have built. We know what migration crises have provoked in the past if we were to see that in even higher numbers – not only international migration but also internal migration – [it would] provoke very serious problem,” Espinosa told the Observer newspaper in an interview.

The leaders of the G20 nations of the world’s largest developed and developing economies will fly to Rome for preliminary talks next weekend, then another flight this time to Glasgow, where they will join about 100 other government heads for the climate gathering.

President Biden and 13 of his cabinet members are flying to Scotland, including Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who has spoken more about the summit than the supply chain crisis that falls under his job scope.

It is unlikely that Xi Jinping, president of China, and Russia’s Vladimir Putin will attend.

Espinosa noted these absences but confidently predicted that would not prevent a successful outcome, adding: “Not all countries are going to be represented at the head of state level. I don’t have any information about President Xi’s presence, but I continue to engage with the Chinese delegation, and there is very important engagement by China in the process.”

Climate activist Greta Thunberg is guaranteed to lecture.

A long list of quarantine exemptions has been put in place to ensure all those flying in will not be required to isolate upon arrival.

“The U.K. and Scottish governments have put in place special arrangements for COP26 recognizing this is a unique event, that must be fully inclusive to achieve the climate outcomes urgently needed,” according to the revised rules.

Espinosa took on the U.N. climate role in 2016. She and Alok Sharma, the UK cabinet minister acting as president, share responsibility for the talks
