The United Nations (UN) has called for Australia to shutter its entire coal industry within 10 years in the name of fighting climate change.
Selwin Hart, the UN’s Assistant Secretary-General and special adviser on climate action, told the Australian National University that phasing out coal by 2030 is an essential step to reduce global warming.
“If the world does not rapidly phase out coal, climate change will wreak havoc right across the Australian economy: from agriculture to tourism, and right across the services sector,” said Hart, adding the ultimate goal is zero carbon emissions by 2050.
But Australia’s Resources Minister Keith Pitt shot down that demand, noting that Australia sets its own energy policies and prerogatives, not a “foreign body” like the UN.
“The future of this crucial industry will be decided by the Australian Government, not a foreign body that wants to shut it down costing thousands of jobs and billions of export dollars for our economy,” Pitt said Monday.
“Coal will continue to generate billions of dollars in royalties and taxes for state and federal governments, and directly employ over 50,000 Australians.”
Coal is Australia’s second largest export, accounting for 6% of the world’s total coal production, behind only China, India, and Indonesia.
As we’ve reported, de-industrializing first-world nations is a key tenet of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda.
The agenda outlines how citizens will be controlled with a social credit score, private property will be dissolved and global communism directed by the UN will reign supreme — all in the name of saving the Earth from global warming.
“You will own nothing and be happy about it.”
