Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050: The Unworkable Goal of the Davos Elite

The Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA) has just issued a report outlining how the world can meet the goal of
reducing carbon emissions worldwide to a net zero by 2050, which is the goal expected to be set at the COP26 conference next November. The IEA describes itself as an “autonomous intergovernmental agency operating within the OECD framework,” but its director, Turkish economist Fatih Birol, is hardly independent: he is the head of the Energy Advisory Board of the World Economic Forum, that elitist group of bankers and oligarchs pushing the Great Reset under the guise of “saving the planet”.

The report entitled Net Zero By 2050, a Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector was requested, according to the official press release, by the British government, in order to “inform the high-level negotiations that will take place at the 26th Conference of the parties (COP26)” ( reports/net-zero-by-2050). Its fundamental premise is that even if governments were to fully achieve the pledges they’ve made to reduce carbon emissions, it wouldn’t be enough to reach the goal of net zero emissions by 2050. In order to tackle the “greatest challenge humankind has ever faced,” Birol says, dramatic action must be taken immediately–no time to waste. The path to achieve these goals is “narrow but achievable.”

Indeed, the measures proposed are drastic. Among the 400 “milestones” cited are “no investment in new fossil fuel supply projects, and no further final investment decisions for new unabated coal plants. By 2035, there are no sales of new internal combustion engine passenger cars, and by 2040, the global electricity sector has already reached netzero emissions.”

That will require the “immediate and massive deployment of all available clean and efficient energy technologies”. Among them, “annual additions of solar PV to reach 630 gigawatts by 2030 and those of wind power to reach 390 gigawatts.” That represents “four times the record level” set in 2020. In terms of solar power, it means the “equivalent to installing the world’s current largest solar park roughly every day.”

That shows (unintentionally) just how unworkable the whole project is. But then again, for the World Economic Forum and its co-thinkers, the purpose is not really to reach zero emissions, but to implement murderous cutbacks in energy consumption and economic development now, while pumping up a new “green bubble” to “save” the financial system.

The G7 is more than ready to play along. At the Environment Ministers meeting on May 21, the seven countries (Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United States) plus the European Union, committed to “take concrete steps towards an absolute end to new direct government support for unabated international thermal coal power generation by the end of 2021…”
