Danish Academic: U.N. Might Use Military To Enforce Climate Agenda

(Breitbart) – The United Nations may resort to military action against states that defy its mandates on global climate action, according to Ole Wæver, a prominent international relations professor at the University of Copenhagen.

In an interview with ABC News in Australia, Professor Wæver cautions that what he sees as “climate inaction” might draw the U.N. into considering other means to ensure its goals are met, even if that leads to global armed conflict.

Professor Wæver says more resistance to change could potentially threaten democracy although the U.N. would counter that the end justified the means in much the same way countries like Greece had their debt crisis solutions forced on them by European Union bureaucrats in Brussels and Strasbourg.

“The United Nations Security Council could, in principle, tomorrow decide that climate change is a threat to international peace and security,” he says.

“And then it’s within their competencies to decide ‘and you are doing this, you are doing this, you are doing this, this is how we deal with it’.”

He believes classifying climate change as a security issue could leave the door open to more extreme policy responses. [See the full interview below]

"The problem is that we are running out of time … the longer we wait, the more abrupt the change has to be."Would a political response to climate change now be a matter of too little, too late?

“That’s what happens when something becomes a security issue, it gets the urgency, the intensity, the priority, which is helpful sometimes, but it also lets the dark forces loose in the sense that it can justify problematic means,” he says.

This urgency, he says, could lead to more abrupt – and essentially undemocratic – action at an international level.

“If there was something that was decided internationally by some more centralised procedure and every country was told ‘this is your emission target, it’s not negotiable, we can actually take military measures if you don’t fulfil it’, then you would basically have to get that down the throat of your population, whether they like it or not,” he says.

“A bit like what we saw in southern Europe with countries like Greece and the debt crisis and so on. There were decisions that were made for them and then they just had to have a more or less technocratic government and get it through.”

Professor Wæver made his predictions last month on the eve of the United Nations COP25 climate conference now underway in Madrid, Spain.

Almost 25,000 delegates and 1500 journalists have flown into the Spanish capital to attend the two-week long meeting.

COP25 will consider a wide agenda of global action including implementing taxes on developed countries to transfer wealth to nations dealing with “the cost of drought, floods and superstorms made worse by rising temperatures,” as Breitbart News reported.

President Donald Trump officially withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, which COP25 is a continuation thereof, in October as part of an election promise to voters, saying he was “elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

  1. If you don’t pay us the money we ask for we will send in the army and take it from you ! If you resist you will probably be detained or shot in the conflict. So here we go ! Comply or die ! Happening in Europe ! And they want us to follow ! I don’t think so.

  2. All the more reason to avoid the UN’s globalization push. If they are pushing for this, they should be kicked out of the US!

  3. If the U.N tries to use military force on the U.S. they’re liable to get their rear ends sent back to them in a basket !!! We need to withdraw from the U.N., either close the U.N. building or rent it out for office space. The U.N. is as bad as Democrats a bunch of Drug Lords, Dictators and Communists run the U.N. and that is also who we have in the House and Congress called Democrats, Deep State or Elites. This Country needs to start weeding those people out send them to Hong Kong and bring the Hong Kong people here to replace the “LEFT WING” NUT JOBS !

  4. You tell ‘me, Mr. President! If the UN makes good on this threat, the US should withdraw from membership, cancel any and all dues and all other financial commitments, and evict them from this country! They could actually acquire more conducive accommodations elsewhere, say, in Moscow and/or Beijing!
