UN Panel And Chief Ban Ki-Moon Says Typhoon Haiyan Due To Climate Change

Ban Ki Moon typhoon Haiyan


You knew it was only a matter of time before the powers that be started to blame the devastating Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines on what else, climate change. Both the head of the UN, Ban Ki-Moon and the nation members of the Disasters Emergency Committee.

One member from the relief agency Oxfam said, "The images we have seen from the Philippines are a reminder that climate change is not about numbers and process, but a growing reality for poor people who desperately need support to protect themselves and build safer futures."

And UN Chief Ban Ki Moon stated, "We have seen now what has happened in the Philippines. It is an urgent warning, an example of changed weather and how climate change is affecting all of us on Earth."

Apparently none of these merchants of doom that want greater political control over our lives remember or know about Hurricane Camille that struck Mississippi and Alabama in 1969 with sustained winds of 200 mph. nor do they give any credence to the Galveston hurricane of 1900 with winds of 145 mph at landfall that killed over 6,000 people, or the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth occurred in 1911 in Death Valley.

All of these events that if they were to happen today would surely be blamed on global warming, or climate change as it is now known, but they occurred decades before all the hype and propaganda of UN climate change goons.

This is the same thing that happens when there is a mass shooting. The powerful elite in charge call for drastic measures to curb the disaster that will make zero changes to the weather as it would for gun control advocates and their calls for banning guns.

Their measures of carbon reduction will do nothing, absolutely nothing but restrict economic growth and give the powerful more control over those not invited into their elitist enclaves.

Members of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) are warning government representatives gathered at the United Nations climate talks in Warsaw, Poland, that the devastating super-typhoon that struck the Philippines is a glimpse of the future if urgent action is not taken.

David Harewood, a British actor who has campaigned on climate change for several years, joined their call.

“More and more, extreme weather and its effects are being seen in every country around the world. When these events happen more frequently and with greater force, they form a pattern that points strongly towards climate change,” Harewood said in an official statement on Sunday.

He added: “There’s no more time to waste: the lives of millions of people all over the world are being impacted by the changing climate right now. It is time for us to stand together and demand action for our planet, for people living in the Philippines and – most of all – for the generations yet to come”.

The 14 members of the DEC are working to deliver life-saving aid to millions of Philippine people affected by the typhoon.

Aid agencies Christian Aid, the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development (CAFOD), CARE International, Oxfam and Tearfund said the ministers meeting this coming week in Warsaw had to act immediately because climate change would see extreme weather events, like Typhoon Haiyan, become more common in the future. This would cause more humanitarian emergencies and put more people at risk.

They added that during the Warsaw meeting, government leaders should deliver more finance, drastically cut global emissions and establish a "loss and damage" mechanism, which would oblige developed countries to help others whose people were losing their lives and livelihoods to the effects caused by climate change.

Oxfam’s head of advocacy, Max Lawson, said: “This should be a wake-up call for negotiators who have been sleepwalking through a process fraught with delay and indecision.

“The images we have seen from the Philippines are a reminder that climate change is not about numbers and process, but a growing reality for poor people who desperately need support to protect themselves and build safer futures”.
