K. Mitsotakis proposed the UN to create a global alliance to combat climate change

Kyriakos Mitsotakis, during his speech at the UN General Assembly in New York, called for the creation of… a global governmental structure (he called it a global alliance) to solve the problem of climate change.

The Greek Prime Minister is proposing the creation of a global service, an analogue of the Greek “112”, because, according to him, if it existed, so many people would not have died in Maui, Hawaii and Libya.

It is worth noting that Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ call for what he called a global alliance came on the same day that the WHO (World Health Organization), in response to the recent pandemic, introduced a “Pandemic Compact” that would essentially force states to comply orders from the “central organization” and impose measures.

This statement came just a few hours after the WHO statement about “preventing a pandemic”, on the basis of which states will cede part of their national sovereignty…

Specifically, the President of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) approved the non-binding UN Declaration on Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response (PPPR) without a full vote of the assembly and over the objections of 11 countries, including Russia.

Critics have called the declaration, which aims to create a global pandemic body with powers to impose lockdowns, implement universal vaccinations and censor so-called “disinformation,” “hypocritical!”

We must emphasize that we are talking about a declaration that, in essence, puts into effect the Pandemic Treaty. Now, a few hours later, Mr. Mitsotaks directly proposes to create another mechanism to which the states of the world, in fact, will transfer part of their national sovereignty.

Those who do not do this will become rogue states with all the ensuing consequences. All this indicates that the program of creating a global state structure under the leadership of the White House is moving forward.

In particular, Kyriakos Mitsotakis said: “We will strive to create an adaptation alliance in the context of the upcoming COP28 climate summit in the United Arab Emirates. Because only by working together can we make a real difference by learning from each other and sharing best practices and solutions.

Take, for example, the number “112” for emergency notification of emergencies, which is available in Greece. It did not exist during the devastating fires five years ago. An entire coastal city was destroyed and more than 100 people died. We learned from that mistake, corrected it, and this summer number 112 played a huge role in minimizing the loss of life.

I wonder what difference such an emergency number would have made on Maui, during the devastating fires in Hawaii, or, for example, in Libya? These kinds of low-cost solutions are the kind of technological adaptation we need globally for the future. A simple idea that nevertheless saves lives. All of this is extremely important because, at the end of the day, our primary responsibility is to protect human life.”
