IMF Chief: We Will Be ‘Toasted, Roasted and Grilled’ by Global Warming

The always toasted, roasted, and tanned IMF Director Christine Lagarde

Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has joined the ranks of the most ardent climate alarmists, prophesying that Armageddon is coming if the human race does not tackle climate change.

If we don’t address the issues of climate change and inequality, Ms. Lagarde said Tuesday before a major economic conference in Riyadh, “we will be moving to a dark future.”

Speaking directly to the question of global warming, Lagarde said that “we will be toasted, roasted and grilled” if humanity fails to make “critical decisions” regarding carbon emissions.

If the human race wants a future that “looks like utopia and not dystopia,” it needs to address such concerns, Lagarde said, predicting that in 50 years’ time, oil will be a secondary commodity since green energy will have moved into prominence.

Speaking before a major petroleum-producing nation, Lagarde hastened to add that these necessary measures are “well understood” in Saudi Arabia.

Ms. Lagarde is no stranger to exaggerated predictions, having proposed in 2016 that a Brexit victory would lead to 500,000 job losses while suggesting that Brexit voters are narrow-minded and calling for a “united Europe.”

Ms. Lagarde said she had always admired Britain’s “openness to other nationalities and cultures” and added it was “hard to believe attitudes had changed in such a short space of time.”

In June, President Donald Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, arguing that it was a deeply flawed document that put American workers at an economic disadvantage.

This announcement drew fierce criticism from world leaders and activists, with former UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon accusing Trump of “standing on the wrong side of history.”

Recent reports, however, suggest that Trump’s move has drawn numerous countries in his wake, with a number of other nations quietly withdrawing from the Paris energy goals.

According to Lawrence Solomon of Energy Probe, a Toronto-based environmental organization, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is one of the only signers of the Paris agreement who is actually abiding by the exacting demands of the accord.

Most signatories, Solomon notes in an essay in last Friday’s Financial Post, “are ignoring, if not altogether abandoning Paris commitments, undoubtedly because voters in large part put no stock in scary global warming scenarios.”

Moreover, a devastating new study from the prestigious UK-based Lancet journal has revealed that pollution-related diseases—rather than “climate change”—were responsible for an estimated 9 million premature deaths in 2015, or some 15 times more than from all wars and other forms of violence combined.

Pollution is not only the largest environmental cause of disease and premature death in the world today, the study found, but diseases caused by pollution were responsible for roughly 16 percent of all deaths worldwide: “three times more deaths than from AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined and 15 times more than from all wars and other forms of violence.”

So while there has not yet been a single documented case of a person being killed by carbon dioxide related “global warming,” real pollution of air, water and land is killing an average of 25,000 people every day across the globe.

As environmental activists jet around the world complaining of “carbon footprints” and preaching “renewable energy,” they have been remarkably silent regarding the real and present menace that is wiping out millions of human beings around the world.

Whereas the Paris Climate Accord prates about greenhouse gas emissions, it never once mentions the word “pollution” in the entire 27-page document.

Yet not only is pollution control not getting better, in many parts of the world, “pollution is getting worse,” the Lancet study found.

    Has it ever been more more obvious that the “rich and famous” are not like us? There is a serious Marie Antoinette disconnect between the elites and the people they purport to serve. They’ve conspired and connived to rob from us in order to provide for us. LOL they need our money to buy 51% of our votes.
    Yes, Madame Lagarde, someone will be roasted, toasted, and grilled. It started last November 4th. Donald Trump won the hearts and minds of working class people who want to work, not handouts.

    The cLIEmate change scam was always about redistribution of wealth. It is socialism plain and simple. Knowing they cannot argue the merits of the system of government which has the worst record on the inequality file, they needed a manufactured crisis to leverage the public into accepting this vile and morally reprehensible system.

    “Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection, says the German economist and IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer. The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated. – Ottmar Edenhofer

    For those who may not know, Ottmar Edenhofer is the co-chair of the IPCC Working Group III.”

      The desire to use climate change as a means to redistribute explains a lot. They must keep the climate change crisis going even though the data doesn’t support it. This is why NQAA is altering past and present temperature data, NASA has also been dishonest, it is why researchers in Australia are reporting elevated temperatures, and much more. Re-distribution of wealth isn’t the only motivation. AGW provides an excuse for larger and more intrusive governments, creates a reason for new taxes, and to force people out of their cars and into public transportation, a goal of the environment’s since the late 1960’. The green energy companies are totally dependant on this crisis for their survival.

      The green climate fund is one plan for the re-distribution of wealth, but the main plan seems to be a top down rationing of carbon credits. Permission to burn carbon would be allocated to different countries equally on this base of population. The developed nations would then have to spend huge sums buying credits from under developed countries. However, it wouldn’t be enough so in addition to the cost of buying carbon credits, without enough energy, the economies of the developed nations would contract as those of the undeveloped countries would expand. The result would be the middle class of the industrial nations living in poverty.

      Though this is a goal of AGW movement, it isn’t likely to come to pass. With the exception of Europe few industrial nations seem to be willing to accept a top down allocation of permission to burn carbon. The reason Obama made the Paris Treaty work was each nation could name its own goals. In addition, without the United States participating, a top down approach can not work.

    Christine Lagarde is replaying a tactic that is at least 15 years old. Shout dire predictions, and if you don’t get the result you want, repeat with predictions that are more dire. This has been done so often that no one takes it seriously. Remember how there were going to be 100 million climate refugees by the year 2010.
