Climate of Fear: U.N. Chief Guterres Warns ‘Era of Global Boiling’ Is Here

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. United Nations chief Antonio Guterres on Thursday night rolled out some of his most apocalyptic climate rhetoric to date declaring “the era of global warming has ended, the era of global boiling has arrived.”

He went on to lament how “terrifying” it is seeing children “swept away by monsoon rains, families running from the flames, workers collapsing in scorching heat.”

The veteran Portuguese socialist painted his picture of a world in peril during a streamed speech from U.N. headquarters in New York, returning once more to a theme of climate doom he has used almost without respite since he took office.

He said “short of a mini ice age” over coming days, some scientists estimate July 2023 would shatter records across the board.

“Climate change is here. It is terrifying, and it is just the beginning,” Guterres outlined. “The era of global warming has ended. The era of global boiling has arrived.

“The consequences are clear and they are tragic — children swept away by monsoon rains, families running from the flames, workers collapsing in scorching heat.

“For vast parts of North America, Asia, Africa and Europe, it is a cruel summer.”

Guterres spoke as a separate analysis for the month, published Friday by Leipzig University climate scientist Karsten Haustein, estimated July could possibly finish 0.2 degrees Celsius warmer than the 2019 record.

Dr Haustein predicted not only would that make it the warmest month on record, but potentially in “thousands if not tens of thousands of years.”

“We may have to go back all the way to the Eemian warm period (about 120,000 years ago) to find similarly warm conditions,” he said, ABC News reports.

“But since paleo-temperature records do not provide high enough temporal resolution, we cannot say with certainty that this July hasn’t been hotter during the peak of the current interglacial [period].”

This is not the first time Guterres has warned the world of impending climate doom.

Just last November he told participants in the COP27 climate summit of impending “climate chaos” due to humanity’s “fossil fuel addiction,” as Breitbart News reported.

“We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot still on the accelerator,” the career diplomat diplomat insisted during his Cop27 opening speech in the resort town of Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

“How will we answer when baby 8 billion is old enough to ask: What did you do for our world and for our planet when you had the chance?” he asked.

Previous to that in 2019 the secretary-general said climate-related devastation is striking the planet on a weekly basis and global action must be undertaken immediately with U.N. agencies in the lead, a message echoed by climate protesters.

“We are here because the world is facing a grave climate emergency,” Guterres told a two-day Abu Dhabi climate meeting ahead of a Climate Action Summit in New York.

“Climate disruption is happening now… It is progressing even faster than the world’s top scientists have predicted,” the U.N. secretary general said. “It is outpacing our efforts to address it. Climate change is running faster than we are.”


  1. Omg, this kind of weather has been happening for centuries!! UN, NATO and the US CANNOT BE TRUSTED! They All are part of this Globalist Regime to take control of the World with a One World Government!! Its all FAKE NEWS and PROPAGANDA 101!!!! You believe this stuff then you’ve been BRAINWASHED!!
