In a speech, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told world leaders at the United Nations that humanity has to “grow up” and tackle climate change, saying humans must stop trashing the planet like a teenager on a bender.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told world leaders at the United Nations on Wednesday night that humanity has to “grow up” and tackle climate change, saying humans must stop trashing the planet like a teenager on a bender.

In a speech to the General Assembly on Wednesday, he said it’s now or never if the world is to meet its goal of limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels.“If we keep on the current track then the temperatures will go up by 2.7 degrees or more by the end of the century. And never mind what that will do to the ice floes,” Johnson said. “We will see desertification, drought, crop failure, andmass movements of humanity on a scale not seen before. Not because of some unforeseen natural event or disaster, but because of us, because of what we are doing now.”

ADVERTISEMENTIn his speech, Johnson compared humanity to an impetuous 16-year-old — “just old enough to get ourselves into serious trouble.”“We have come to that fateful age when we know roughly how to drive and we know how to unlock the drinks cabinet and to engage in all sorts of activity that is not only potentially embarrassing but also terminal,” he said.

“We believe that someone else will clear up the mess we make, because that is what someone else has always done,” he added. “We trash our habitats again and again with the inductive reasoning that we have got away with it so far, and therefore we will get away with it again. headtopics.com

“My friends, the adolescence of humanity is coming to an end,” Johnson, said, adding: “We must come together in a collective coming of age.”Hopes for a successful Glasgow summit have been boosted by announcements this week from the world’s two biggest economies and largest carbon polluters, the United States and China. Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country will no longer fund coal-fired power plants abroad, while U.S. President Joe Biden announced a plan to double financial aid for green growth to poorer nations to $11.4 billion by 2024.

Britain has pledged to reduce its carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, and Johnson has championed the expansion of renewable energy, saying the U.K. could become the “Saudi Arabia of wind.” But he is under fire from environmentalists for failing to scrap new North Sea oil drilling and a proposed new coal mine in northwest England.

SHOW 🇬🇧 SLAUGHTER on TV SkyNews it could change the 🆘🌎🆘🌎🆘🌎🆘🌎🆘🌎🆘 ClimateCrisis CO2 BURNS Animals alive Meat & Dairy abusers must Watch what they Pay For. It’s so humiliating having that Buffon on the world’s stage. Still got idiots spoiling environment..but it's got to be joint efforts,from young,and the old can all offer skills..we can all make a difference together..teachers,local events,all communities must organize for the better.

Einstein said the aim is always to simplify..not complicate..life must be simplified at community levels..we have a brilliant charity shop that's cheap and the amount of stuff that can be passed on is amazing..we have local growers,artists,farmers,local produce, The idea this inflated schoolboy, who built a ‘career’ on lies, can tell anyone to ‘grow up’ would be laughable, if it were not so cynical.

Boorish Johnson. Everyone is misspelling his name.... He should practice what he preaches. This from a proud member of the infamous Bullingdon club? 'Members found it amusing if people were intimidated or frightened by their behaviour I recall them walking down a street in Oxford in their tails, chanting ‘Buller,Buller’ smashing bottles along the way, just to cow ppl”

Notwithstanding, some activists claim having six children will amplify global warming.

I agree that we should grow up Boris. Let's start it off right with a haircut eh? The Planet However Doesn’t Accept The Teenager Status But A MATURED MACHO PERSON NOW DEALING OUT THE PUNCHES, BLOWS, KICKS—FLOODING, WILDFIRE, TORNADOES, HURRICANE, VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS +++ LIKE NEVER EVER SEEN NOR HEARD!!!

Now we know! We are all in! Collosal waste of money ● PART TIME JOBS▬▬▬▬▬ ● My last salary was $ 3,500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sister’s friend has been averaging $ 8,0000 for several months now, and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was when I tried it. The potential with it is endless.

Forget rolling in the V8..catch the bus..save the planet..all luv..no hate.. How embarrassing was it to have the media hurried out of his joint news conference with “ice cream joe”. So says Boris Johnson. Intelligence imperialism. Humanity? Dude, profits rule the voices of those who write the laws ....http://www.jobget6.com

But don't worry about raw sewage being pumped into rivers, eh. BorisJohnson asking others to “grow up”…. Ah, the irony! Said the man who took a private jet to a G7 summit in Cornwall! BorisJohnson: '..humans must stop trashing the planet like a teenager on a bender'. In June, like a teenager on a bender, Johnson flew by private jet, rather than by direct train, from London to Cornwall for G7 talks on climate change. 🙄 BorisTheLiar

'The British Empire trashed the planet through colonization of half of the earth. Now it's time for the developing countries to sacrifice their economy so that we are at top of exploiting pyramid.' Omg he says something I respect and agree with. This feels weird o_0 The hypocrisy of Boris Johnson is beyond belief

Grow up? Jesus Christ this guy goes around lying on a daily basis to everyone he meets Johnson is the ultimate teenager on a bender trashing the UK. There is little likelihood of his growing up anytime soon. He has seen the light ... but if people won't change their lifestyles after 2 years of Covid (the reason economy GDP's are rebounding so fast) ... then changing the culture is a lost cause ... we are doomed by the stoopid

😂 Right after Johnson purposefully and immaturely butchered french phrases telling the French to 'grow up'. Yes, but who’s leading the message “reduce your consumption… “ so lots of people would be jobless? It is compulsory to change the concep of “profit” in our lifes, and no politicians dare to say it. Votes first… that’s our curse. Democracy is unable to give answers.

What universe did I wake up in? Johnson is a “connard”. Boris is sayin good things and it is refreshing Someone's hair looks it went through a tornado. Rare Boris dub Says the man child. He’s actually said something I can agree with. Stunning. Wonde who wrote it for him.

Like a new coal mine in Britain? thank goodness you said something Boris...we would have never thought about saving the planet without you. You know how bad it is when this guy says so. Air conditioning is not the solution to global warming. People are. Let’s leave this place better than we found it. For our kids.

He tried to answer questions from the press but White House shut it down. Psaki said they were notified. lol 😂. We Koreans have exact words. “너나 잘해”. Forget rolling in the V8..catch the bus..save the planet..all luv..no hate.. How embarrassing was it to have the media hurried out of his joint news conference with “ice cream joe”.

So says Boris Johnson. Intelligence imperialism. Humanity? Dude, profits rule the voices of those who write the laws.
