Lagarde: If nothing is done about climate change we will be “toasted, roasted and grilled”..*sigh

There will be serious consequences if climate change is not tackled, according to the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

“As I’ve said before, if we don’t do anything about climate change now, in 50 years’ time we will be toasted, roasted and grilled,” Christine Lagarde said during a panel discussion Tuesday at the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

“Decisions are needed at this point in time, which will probably mean that in 50 years’ time oil will be a secondary commodity,” Lagarde added. She said this was something that was “well understood” in the Kingdom.

Both climate change and inequality were “two key issues” that would drive us to either utopia or dystopia, Lagarde stated. “If we don’t address those two issues — of climate change and growing inequalities — we will be moving towards a dark 50 years from now,” she said.

Speaking on the same panel as Lagarde was Amin Nasser, president and CEO of Saudi Aramco.

“Alternatives, electric cars and renewables, are definitely gaining market share, making a lot of progress and we are witnessing that,” he said. “However, it will be decades before they take a major share of the global energy supply.”

  2. Oh noooos what’s this, another ‘failure’ by the powers that be????

    India Tells the UN it needs $2.5 Trillion to Reduce CO2 Emissions

    page 31 of the document

    India’s climate actions have so far been largely financed from domestic resources. A substantial scaling up of the climate action plans would require greater resources. A detailed and full scale assessment of international climate finance needs will be finalized at a later stage and would depend on the gap between actual cost of implementation of India’s plans
    and what can be made available from domestic sources.

    While this would evolve over time, a preliminary estimate suggests that at least USD 2.5 trillion (at 2014-15 prices) will be required for meeting India’s climate change actions between now and 2030.

  3. But electric cars get their power from coal , oil and gas and much more inefficiently than from fuel direct into the tank – so more CO2 will be produced (which is actually a good thing and will green the planet ) but the opposite of what “they” want .
