Danish boffin: Australia could be invaded by the UN

The ABC asks: Could climate inaction unleash ‘dark forces’ that threaten democracy — and lead to war?


“If there was something that was decided internationally by some more centralised procedure and every country was told ‘this is your emission target, it’s not negotiable, we can actually take military measures if you don’t fulfil it’, then you would basically have to get that down the throat of your population, whether they like it or not,” he says.

  1. Someone in the EU says they could possibly take military action over climate change deniers? LMFAO!

  2. Shejustlaughs

    How much carbon is emitted by warfare? Seems like an empty threat.

  3. Tim Neilson

    Oh boy, if our targets are due to be met before we take delivery of our impregnable submarine fleet we’re in big trouble!

  4. Truth n Justice

    Try it at my house arsehole and see how far you get!

  5. Weeny

    Could be a great result. U.N. Wiped out by China.

  6. IainC

    Some people sure do love their “central procedures”.
    How would their navy and air force get here without fossil fuels?
    This plan might work for Botswana or Tahiti. What if China or the US refused to play ball?

    Yes.
    Antifa is exhibit A.
    Lefties really hate it when people ignore them.
    Even when they are pushing bonkers ideologies like Nazism, Communism and Global Warming.

    Fortunately the Left’s current round of stormtroops are a bunch of snowflakes that need rooms full of toys to calm down in when confronted by reality.

    ‘this is your emission target, it’s not negotiable, we can actually take military measures if you don’t fulfil it’

    Go threaten military measures against China Ole. Let us know how that goes.

    Meanwhile, who is this “we” you speak of? Got a toad in your pocket?

  9. George Gell

    Remember the UN invasion force will not founder on the Great Barrier Reef. It will have disappeared by then.– not the Barrier reef- the UN

  10. Why? Our Governing class is already chock full of U.N quislings.

  11. Enyaw

    I Knew there was a reason I kept Gran’pas old gatling gun ..and the ammo ..lol

    Australia could be invaded by the UN

    Throw a few thousand goats the way of the invading UN forces and she’ll be right, comrade.

  13. Maybe they plan to use this EU army they keep talking about? It will probably take more than a decade to work out the social justice, environmental, gender, equality, OH&S etc training required and then more time to get everyone suitably qualified before they consider how to establish their units.

    There’s also the aspect of supplying sufficient electric powered war machines, CO2 and environmentally friendly arms, vegan food supplies and appropriate safe spaces.

  14. Snoopy

    ‘this is your emission target, it’s not negotiable, we can actually take military measures if you don’t fulfil it’, then you would basically have to get that down the throat of your population,

    Try that out on your own country’s car-B-Q community and then get back us, fuckstick.

  15. Lee

    Just goes to show some lefties have no sense of shame or irony.

    And they call those they disagree with Nazis!

  16. Slim Cognito

    If their army consists of a bunch of Greta clones, I think we will be OK.

  17. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    ‘this is your emission target, it’s not negotiable, we can actually take military measures if you don’t fulfil it’, then you would basically have to get that down the throat of your population,

    Look up why the Imperial Japanese Army never invaded Australia sometime, will you?

  18. Mother Lode

    Much as the ADF has been allowed to martial inefficacy, the degenerates that the UN might hope to field would be utterly outmatched.

    Besides, we release a few hundred goats with explosives implanted in their lady-goat-parts and the UN force would be reduced by 50% on the first week end.

  19. Dr Fred Lenin

    This shows the communist fascist globalists up for the mongrels they are, the UN couldn’t run a piss up in brewery , bunch of bureaucratic wankers . HopeAss Ole gets blown up by some of his beloved musso fascists .
    Abolish the u.n. as a terrorist threat ,take the money off them ,that kills socialist fascism every time .
    Bloody treasonous gangrene alpbc close it down .

  20. Genghis

    What a wonder set of replies.

  21. Genghis

    Perhaps someone could ask this fool how the Danish Windmill build is going.

  22. Dr Fred Lenin

    Mother lode. Haha ,naughty naughty ,surely the saviours of gangreneism wouldn’t engage in In un natural practices ?

  23. Very consistent with the imperious, angry/fearful nature of the global warming activists.

  24. lotocoti

    we can actually take military measures

    Who wouldn’t want to see the Bangladeshi Army trying to invade the United States on a UN mandated carbon search and destroy mission?

  25. An EU climate change military invasion would look like a Carry On movie.

  26. DaveR

    I have been saying for some time that the next major war in the West will be due to left totalitarians, like those inhabiting the Green movement, bypassing democratic processes and imposing their views on nations through bodies like the UN. Contrary to this article, I think the war will most likely be in Europe (again).

    Australians are a very tolerant lot, but they will call BS loudly when the mark is overstepped, and clean out the agitators long before the point of taking up arms.

    Indeed, the climate protest in Melbourne last week was reduced to a few hard-liners and all the banners had the word “Socialist” in them. The public a already quickly abandoning this cause.

  27. Entropy

    International socialism has been trying to find a way for over 100 years.

    From Wikipedia

    Ole Wæver (born 17 September 1960) is a professor of International Relations at the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen. He has published and broadcast extensively in the field of international relations, and is one of the main architects of the so-called Copenhagen School in International Relations.

    Prior to his professorate at University of Copenhagen, Wæver was a senior research fellow at Copenhagen Peace Research Institute

    ..and he looks like Di Natal (cleft).

    A right royal plonker.

    You owe me a new laptop screen, Mother Lode. I’m still mopping my tea off the table.

    considering the UN General Assembly is run by the voting cabal called the G77, which is every single broken arse nation, theocracy, tinpot dictatorship and socialist workers paradise but includes China, I wouldn’t put it past them to try this crap, but as the only real efficient military forces ever deployed on UN missions are US or NATO forces, it would be fun to see these guys spin up an invasion force just to see it sink as I reckon no other nation apart from the US actually has the naval assets to move an invasion force capable of taking even Australia. Just need to remember the logistics nightmare that D Day was and that was a mere jump across a channel that was at most 240 km wide compared to the 600 plus distance from Indonesia. Papua New Guinea may only be 170km away as the crow flies, but that is the two nearest geographical points and nowhere near the Port Moresby to nearest population centre which is still 800km away. Morons like this need to understand that military action is only successful when supported by successful and efficient logistical support and no one can do that over such large distances except the US.

    Look up why the Imperial Japanese Army never invaded Australia sometime, will you?

    If I remember correctly, the Japanese Army estimated they would need some 15-2o divisions (300-400,000 men) and over half a million tonnes of shipping for those troops and supplies etc.

    And in 1940, Australia’s entire population was a very thin 7 million or so. Not that anybody seriously thinks the UN would do so (its a funny story nevertheless), an invasion of Australia today would require enormous resources. Realistically, I doubt that any country is capable of putting together the vast armada and million+ troops for a full scale invasion. (Even if we had to fend for ourselves without assistance from a single other country).

    Much easier to cripple your enemy by other means (all of which have been discussed on the Cat previously).

  33. Mater

    Is there enough parking under Parliament House for all the White Landcruisers?
    Perhaps we should extend in anticipation.

  34. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    If I remember correctly, the Japanese Army estimated they would need some 15-2o divisions (300-400,000 men) and over half a million tonnes of shipping for those troops and supplies etc.

    They are roughly the figures – the Navy put forward two plans, but the Army decided that they would have to withdraw those troops from China or Siberia, and they didn’t want to run the risk.

  35. classical_hero

    DaveR, basically like all other wars.

  36. Bronson

    The UN couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery let alone an invasion.
    To think the Danes were once vikings now theyre just flower pots – is Ole Bill or Ben?

  37. Cynic of Ayr

    When you think there could not possibly be another stupid Professor, among a legion of stupid Professors, along comes another one.
    You have to be a special kind of stupid to even think that such a process would work. He’s so fucken stupid that he doesn’t know that the UN almost totally relies on the United States for funding, and that only the tin pot dictators of Bananaland will be left when all the big guys pull out!
    I really don’t understand this. How can so many people, with the title Professor, be such morons.
    If I was a Professor, I’d be embarrassed to say I was.

  38. Herodotus

    “Throw a few thousand goats the way of the invading UN forces … ”
    That’s “comfort goats” I presume.

  39. Dr Fred Lenin

    Good to see he peace research institute promoting armed invasion of a country thst doesn’t obey the unelected untidy nayshuns ,hypocrites abound on the left . Wonder if that criminal soros is funding these ARS Oles ? Sounds like a communist front group .

  40. Chris M

    More premature babies!

    Climate change can do literally anything. It’s like God – a god made in mans image.

  41. 2dogs

    Slavery has been contrary to international law since 1926, but is still widely practised.

    I can’t see military action to enforce international law of CO2 emissions happening much quicker.

  42. Radman

    I think the UN invasion should be done to the Benny Hill theme.

  43. Roger

    “The United Nations Security Council could, in principle, tomorrow decide that climate change is a threat to international peace and security,” he says.

    “And then it’s within their competencies to decide ‘and you are doing this, you are doing this, you are doing this, this is how we deal with it’.”

    Only the ABC would take this stuff seriously.

    The UN, Swedes and true believers saving the planet.

  45. J.H.

    LOL… When I think of the UN, I think of Rwanda. They are as useful as tits on a bull when it comes to anything military…. Without America, they are yapping lap dogs…. and America is no longer a signatory to the Paris Agreement’s climate scam.

  46. Boambee John

    The professor of international relations is remarkably ignorant of his specialmsubject.

    The US, UK and France all hold a veto in the Security Council. Good luck getting his war resolution through there!

  47. Overburdened

    Right we have the plan, now to sell the pretext…

  48. Tel

    Just goes to show some lefties have no sense of shame or irony.

    No sense of history either.

    If ScoMo had the balls to demand this loon got handed over to face trial … the Danes would probably deliver him just to avoid a scene. The Danish government is one of the few governments that bends the knee more often and more earnestly than Canberra does.

  49. nb

    Flotilla of catamarans approach the US coast carrying an army of NPCs armed with bows and arrows made from ethically sourced timber. Much gnashing of teeth back in the home countries that the US is not funding this invasion, while 2% of the green economy just manages to pay for the conversion of the onboard toilets to make them transgender friendly.

  50. Knuckle Dragger

    I reckon young Ole’s given this a bit of thought.

    Keep the Yanks out of it, as well as Chai-nerrrr. EU infighting abounds.

    Get the Swedes and Norwaylanders on board. Take Germany’s Baltic Balcony and Pomerania, then call a truce before the Krauts get their shit together.

    Bam. Hanseatic League II.

    Let’s not forget that it will also take some time to manufacture the Hugo Boss uniforms in China.

  52. Up The Workers!

    Surely there must be some pill in existence which we could add to the U.N. Buildings’ water supply which would mercifully change their verbal diahorrea to verbal constipation?

    That should fix their problem – and they should in future keep away from Unripe Swedes – they’re no good for you!

  53. Up The Workers!

    I agree with Tel at 9.38pm.

    The Danes are more in the nature of “Viqueens” than “Vikings”.

  54. I wonder what someone like John Cleese could make from the idea of a carbon neutral climate war.

  55. Robbo

    They seem to be breeding a bunch of raving fuckwits in Scandinavia. First we were assaulted by that stupid, ignorant little Thunberg child from Sweden and now we get this tool from Denmark. Maybe someone should test the air in that part of the world to see whether it causes mental derangement.
