Russia vetoes the UN resolution linking climate and international security. The weather and climate crisis that we have been experiencing for years must be seen and analyzed from a ‘forgotten’ perspective. As for security, the Russians are well aware that weather and climate manipulation can and has already been used as a weapon of war, so there is a security risk to be placed here. Other countries know this too, as such operations have been practiced all over the world since more than 60 years.
The scientist reveals us in her radical and enlightening book PLANET EARTH – THE LAST WEAPON OF WAR a completely ignored reality. A reality characterized by a war on a planetary scale, silent and unspoken, which feeds itself on the resources of the Planet, impacting in a destructive, and often irreparable, way on the territories and populations that inhabit them.
Misstep at the UN: the climate crisis “has nothing to do with security and conflict”
Russia vetoed a Security Council resolution that recognized climate change as a threat to international peace and called for this dimension to be integrated into the organ’s strategic guidelines. Unlike India too, China abstains.
(Rinnovabili.it) – For the UN, the climate crisis it is not a threat to international security and peace. And when it comes to managing a conflict situation, we must not take into account climate change, its causes and its effects on the environment and on human societies. The attempt failed Ireland and Niger to have it approved by the United Nations Security Council a resolution that would put climate change at the center of attention of the UN. Russia’s veto, together with the vote against India and the perplexities of China (which abstained) have put a damper on the proposal.
Only a few days ago the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, had defined the climate crisis as a “factor that aggravates terrorism”, because it allows extremist groups to manipulate access to resources (increasingly scarce), acquire legitimacy in the eyes of the populations and take the place of states. Countless times during his tenure, the Portuguese diplomat then warned that the climate crisis in many regions threatens to exacerbate the present frailties and therefore to heighten latent tensions and conflicts.
Positions that with Guterres have finally reached the top of the UN. The resolution rejected yesterday in New York would have taken a further step: it tied the climate and conflicts in a tight way, and above all he called for the climate crisis to become a central factor in the UN conflict prevention strategy. Translated: the activation of peacekeeping missions, the choice to impose sanctions, and future resolutions of the Security Council could have hinged on climate change and its impacts.
Russia has justified its no with the idea that an issue that, for Moscow, is purely economic and social should not be made political. New Delhi also agrees with the Russians on the idea that putting the climate crisis at the center of UN efforts would lead to more divisions in the international community. Together with Beijing, this front believes that linking conflict and climate – thus making it one of the key themes of the Security Council’s action – is inappropriate because there is already a body within the UN responsible for dealing with the climate crisis, namely theUnfccc. However, it does not approve resolutions or sanctions.
