UN Secretary General warns of four "horsemen of the apocalypse" threatening peace

Four large-scale problems threatening peace were called on Wednesday by the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, speaking at the UN General Assembly with a report on the results of the organization's work in 2019 and the tasks for 2020.


In his speech, Guterres called these problems "riders of the apocalypse" and stated that the most threatening to the world are: geopolitical tensions, climate change, global distrust and the abuse of new technologies.

Our world is approaching the point of no return. I see four “horsemen” - four looming threats that pose a danger to progress and the full potential of the XNUMXst century

- said the UN Secretary General.

Gutterish called the first "rider of the apocalypse" the highest geopolitical tension. He noted that precisely for this reason terrorist attacks occur, and the nuclear threat is growing.

The UN Secretary-General called the "existential climate crisis" the second "rider".

Rising [mean world] temperatures continues to break records. Millions of species of living creatures will be threatened with extinction in the near future. Our planet is on fire

- he said.

The third rider is a deep and growing global mistrust. According to Guterres, "two out of three people live in countries where inequality has grown." Confidence in political institutions is declining. Women demand equality of rights and freedom from violence and discrimination.

And the last, fourth, global threat is the "reverse side of the digital world."

Technological progress is faster than our ability to match it - or even be aware of it. Despite the enormous benefits that new technologies bring, they are being abused for committing crimes, inciting hatred, disseminating false information, oppressing and exploiting people, and violating privacy

He stressed.

      Chub not rider. He is a horse. In a leather coat))) Well, or a rubber product No. 2, lying in the pocket of one of the riders. The question is debatable.

          The questions are clearly not for Russia.

        I do not agree with you, Chubais is not a debatable issue, but a closed one. No matter how flattering it is, do not call him, everyone will agree together.

        Actually, in the Middle Ages in Europe, the climate was even warmer than it is now, count up, eh? (even before any scientific and technical progress, self-running cars and refineries) What about mine Asian Chelyabinsk speak? It is not without reason that the emblem is a camel (it was once really so warm that camels in our area were by no means in zoos). Then, in the 18-19th century, cooling began, now - again, a little warming. A cat called Humanity is too tiny to independently influence the Earth’s climate or to be at least a significant factor in its fluctuations.

                1. Haifa is located on Mount Caramel with the highest point at 524 meters above sea level. The maximum will flood the Arab quarters in the lower city.
                2. From the desert, we have already turned Israel into a blooming garden.
                3. After the construction of the second stage of the plant in Sorek (the tender is due to be published shortly) and the new plant in Western Galilee are completed, 7 large desalination plants will operate in Israel, able to satisfy 85%-90% population demand for drinking water.

                    After the construction of the second stage of the plant in Soreka (the tender is due to be published shortly) and the new plant in Western Galilee are completed, 7 large desalination plants will operate in Israel, capable of satisfying 85% -90% of the population’s demand for drinking water.

                    By the way, people, that’s why for the Jews the surrender of the illegally captured Golan Heights is like a sickle in the balls.
                    So they will never voluntarily give it back, because strategic issue of the survival of Israel.

                    Where is the logic? We don’t take water from the Golan (or whatever it is in Arabic?), And moreover, a project has begun to fill Kinneret with desalinated water.
                    We will not give our Golan to anyone.

                Learn the story: why were the Golan used by the former (short-lived, after the Turks and British) owners? - For attacks on Israeli territory. Syria, Egypt and Co. attacked immediately after the withdrawal of British troops. Their leaders argued in the spirit of "probably after the capture of Israel, Jews will be allowed to leave ... but hardly anyone will survive." What's this? The discussion of genocide for these characters is of a domestic nature. And they are not negotiable. They fight badly, they just portray victims. Treaties are perceived only as a respite to gather strength, preparing a new dirty trick. One must be completely divorced from reality in order to convey the Golan.
                About illegality .. How legal is the possession of Russia (in the past of the USSR) by the Kuril Islands? But you can recall the treacherous attack of the Union on Japan in 1945m (which did not violate the treaty during all the years of the war). Here, most often, double standards are included “well, we are, by right of the winner” ...

    Somewhere in the world it’s getting warmer, somewhere on the contrary, it’s getting colder. Climatologists and geologists who are not covered by grants from questionable offices involved in the "study" of climate, on the contrary, say that the warming is local. But in general, not warming is coming, but cooling. This is an area where checking is very difficult. And the fact that in the public domain is not a fact, that is true. we are already blowing in our ears from all sides, especially from the west, go figure it out here.

        Energy resources are gold. More precisely, they are even more in demand than gold. Gold has a lot of value, well ... purely as a standard and according to historical habit. For it is still mined a little, but what is not enough - for some reason, one always wants it (Schaub Bulo) and the price tag takes off to sky-high heights. But if it is sensible to judge, besides the use of gold in electrical engineering and medicine (but here and there it requires very little to meet the needs of industries), it is especially not needed anywhere by people.
        But energy - yes ... This is a slipway of the current technogenic civilization. Without them, we will immediately roll back not even to steam engines, but immediately to the early Middle Ages. And then, if you're lucky.

Gold has few practical applications (copper is even more practical).

              Gold is little used only because of the price. But at the same time, it is sometimes technologically irreplaceable, due to corrosion resistance and high electrical conductivity. In electronics, important contacts have been gilded for a long time, inside the microcircuits, the conductive tracks are gold. So in electrical engineering, gold is much more practical than copper, the question is price. In chemistry, when working with aggressive substances, gold is also beyond competition, the question is price.

                But if it is sensible to judge, in addition to the use of gold in electrical engineering and medicine (but there and there it is required very little to meet the needs of industries), it is especially not needed anywhere by people.

                And there is a replacement, as it were, long ago - new materials, new alloys. Just rebuilding established process chains is no reason. Already on the electrical engineering of gold is enough for everyone.
                And yes, in electrical engineering, gold is more beneficial than copper, but NOT more practical. And only in electrical engineering.
                But in everything the rest - its value is abstract. It's just that people throughout their history are accustomed to value gold purely because of rarity / coloring. Although once upon a time gold was valued from a more practical side, precisely because of its durability: inertness to oxidation. However, no one who was sane, and then did not make gold work axes from gold. ^ _ ^ Copper, in those days, was much better suited for this (without any electrical equipment). The same Incas, Aztecs, Mayans bathed in gold (well, they were lucky to live on deposits of gold ores), but even they used gold by no means in daily household purposes. For the metal itself is very good. horseradish for everyday use in comparison with the same copper. Here for durable trinkets - yes, it’s good.

                  The question is still in price. I brought electronics because they use it even at that price. Hypothetically - the price of gold is such as that of copper. Offhand application - lining of hulls of marine vessels - there will be no fouling. Chemical reactor shells are durable and pollution free. All types of miniature machines - no other metal has such ductility. Yes, at least during construction, instead of galvanized iron, use gilded (partially made even now - gilded domes of temples). Alloying with gold - very limitedly used even now - allows to obtain alloys with unique properties. The Incas simply did not have such technological needs, and they did not bathe in gold, it was enough only for temple needs.

                    Offhand application - lining of hulls of marine vessels - there will be no fouling.

                    Bad offhand. Composites in all fields are already applied. Moreover, gold, as you remember, is a very heavy metal. For sailors, it’s not at all comme il faut, even if it’s like a coating (and there will be fouling - gold is biologically inert, but we need material that inhibits the development of microorganisms). About malleability, too, you can argue, but oh well. I didn’t talk about this from the very beginning, but about low practical, niche application of gold.

                    The Incas simply did not have such technological needs, and they did not bathe in gold, it was enough only for temple needs.

                    No. Enough for the women. And it was very good. They (their women) really bathed in gold. And more - just never used, because there was no point. In general, the real "gold" of ancient times was meteorite iron, hih. Here it was appreciated hoo!
                    But in general - thanks for your posts, plus. It was nice to talk to the person who fumbles in the subject (even if he bumped into the discussion of purely technical issues).

        Well, we didn’t have any snow in Ayan (north of Khab.krai) a couple of years ago))) Although for Ayan this is completely atypical, therefore, last and this winter, nature recovered - under two meters, as usual. So these are just anomalies, no more. They write: "The temperature record held since 1966 (for example) was broken." So, in the 66th, there was also a temperature anomaly. But then no one voted that global warming had come and we would all drown)))

        Climatologists claimed that there had never been an ozone hole above Antarctica. And now, they’re used to it. True, not all. Some, the most stubborn, call for the extermination of the entire livestock of cows, because those panimash fart with methane, which contributes to the development of the greenhouse effect. Others urge space shuttle launches to be abandoned because they pierce the sky, and ultraviolet light penetrates through the holes and causes skin cancer.
        But seriously, climatologists do not yet know very well what happened before and at what speed it happened. Well, and for what reasons it happened. But the fact that the anthropogenic factor in the current warming is only a fraction of a percent has already been proved.

        On the third night ... "- A.S. Pushkin.

            How many years of consecutive weather observations have been recorded by climatologists - one hundred, one hundred and fifty?))) And in manuscript sources there is evidence of cooling for a very long time - even the southern seas froze. Do you have annual data from those times to compare the rates of warming and cooling? If this data is not available, then what are you comparing with.))

              There are methods for analyzing core samples from old trees, glaciers, ocean floor sediments, etc. from which it is possible to obtain sufficiently reliable data.

Therefore, it is not worth affirming that this is true if there are doubts about "reliability."

    Than to arrange wooden horses, the Secretary General would care about the independence of his office. It’s high time to move the UN headquarters to some Cyprus, for example. So that the main destructive element of the UN ceases to manage the goals and objectives of this organization. At the same time closer to those regions where the bulk of the people live - Asia-Africa-Europe. The United States has long sabotaged all the good initiatives of the United Nations and acts as a destroyer of all agreements reached and possible. Only there is no council for them. And the UN cannot contradict them because of organizational and economic dependence.

      In fact, he was the President of the Socialist International.
      The Socialist International (Socintern) is an international non-governmental social-democratic organization. Headquarters in London. Originally created in 1864 (First International), it resumed its activity in 1951 in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) at the organizational congress of 34 socialist and social democratic parties, mainly from Europe. He considers himself the assignee of the Second International, as well as the Socialist Workers International, which existed from 1923 to World War II, and in 1989 officially celebrated the centenary. Of course, the personality there (but not ours) is bright, and Spanish-Portuguese socialism with the ideology of social liberalism is very different from the classical one. So what about the mat is quite expected.

    The UN has become a decisive talking room. Ask who is Antonio Gutterisch - no one knows the UN Sec gene. Because they do not really solve world problems there, but they wipe their asses. Gretta Tumberg is the main one there.
    It's time to either reform them or disperse them. By the way, in 2024, a suitable candidate for the position of the UN Secretary General will be released. IMHO, he will definitely be able to drain this swamp and make everyone work, and not invent the horseman of the apocalypse.

Education in the lesson, respectively, past the ears because everything is on the network. Hence the conclusion that a child is being educated begins only to what is needed here and now, the rest is on the network.

    From his words, the article did not include what, in my opinion, reflects both his “concern” for the world and the way to solve problems - “We must strengthen our mediation potential and our tools for maintaining peace. We need to create the conditions for effective peace enforcement and counter-terrorism operations. ” That is, this peacemaker does not see at all how the previous efforts to "force peace ..." in the Middle East ended, but he remembers that Russia exceeded its right to peace enforcement in 2008.
