Watch: Former UN Chief Kofi Annan Warns ‘The Living Would Envy the Dead’ Due To Climate Change – NYC Will Drown

Kofi Annan on climate trends: NYC will drown and ‘the living would envy the dead’

Published on Jul 22, 2015

Speaking at the World Summit of Conscience, former UN Chief Kofi Annan says that if the world doesn’t take immediate action to reverse current climate trends, glaciers and ice sheets could disappear causing New York City to drown. He then quotes former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to predict without action ‘the living would envy the dead.’

KOFI ANNAN: “I know that if action is not taken immediately to stop and reverse current climate trends, my grandson will live in a world where the average global temperature could be several degrees higher than when I was a child. The result would be suffocating heat waves, severe droughts, disastrous floods, and devastating wild fires. Entire regions would experience catastrophic decline in food production. Glaciers and ice sheets would disappear leading to rising sea levels, drowning cities such as New York and Venice and small island states. This brings to mind what Nikita Khrushchev once said when reflecting the impact of potential nuclear war, ‘the living would envy the dead’.”

  1. Kofi needs to go cheer up those Canadian climate scientists who just got bumped off their ride on an icebreaker because the ice is so heavy in Hudson Bay the ship needed to go back to escorting supply ships. Kinda like the ship-of-fools expedition to Antarctica that went looking for open water and got icebound, except these boys didn’t get to the icebound part, just the disappointment.

  2. Uh huh; Arctic ice rebounds by 40% by volume, sea ice in Antarctica at record levels, a pause in ‘warming’ since 1995………….on their figures, IPCC in retreat at every juncture.

    Even the UK Met Office, is admitting the possibility of a major cooling event, one similar in scale to the LIA and Maunder minimum, have pause to muse on that for a moment.

    I have a fine contempt for politicians and their allies, investment bankers, the corporate shills, through fiat currency and QE, they are driving the western world to the brink of an economic catastrophe. It is, these same idiots who pontificate on man made warming as if it were an absolute truth, when nothing could be further from it.
    €$£ trillions have been thrown down the drain of mitigation of a non existent phenomenon. Now as the world sinks towards a financial calamity created and based on greed and mankinds’ infinite and arrogant propensity to conjure reverie and folly out of logic, simplicity and mathematics.
    As the earth enters a prolonged cooling phase – the last thing the world economy needs is, a “global agreement to cut emissions” – Obama and his mouthpiece Annan – the both of you are liars of the first order, you will destroy the world via the transport of internationalism.

    Hell and damnation, when all is said and done, global atmospheric warming is something we’re going to NEED – remember the last winter – America?

    At the end, only the cranks carry on with the great myth, Annan is one.

      1. And they want to spend a lot more, about $100 billion a year just to get started, and our Dear Leader actually wants to pay it.

        Thank God we have a Republican controlled Congress, otherwise the Dems would sign our lives away at this Paris Climate Summit. It’s shameful.

        In order to save the world, we must ensure that this Climate Summit is a complete failure.

      1. That’s not a prediction. And so what? CO2 concentrations have been higher in the past and will likely be higher and lower in the future. Not sure of your point.

  3. Dear Kofi,

    Since climate change alarmists have an abysmal prediction track record, anybody with a knowledge of this history, does not buy this rubbish. You are a Club of Rome member, along with other demagogues, who could give a rat’s arse about the climate. What really motivates you is control and domination. You are a totalitarian, misanthropic schmuck whose agenda is summed-up in the following quote:

    “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention….and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself….believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is “a real one or….one invented for the purpose.”

    – The Club of Rome

    Free people the world over will unite to resist and smite you.

  4. Kofi Annan is functionally illiterate when it comes to bad science. He displayed a marked lack of knowledge in the particular field: He is scientifically illiterate.

  5. The transparency of this scam is really squeezing the elite! As the Paris meeting approaches we’ll hear much more of this “scary rhetoric”,
    they’ll say or do anything to gain more power over us. Remember for the climate change pushers to succeed all economies will begin to fail—
    guess who swoops in to make it all right–Big Brother
