Globalists Panic, Warn ‘Rise of the Right Threatens to Kill’ WEF’s ‘Net Zero Ambitions’

Globalists are raising the alarm over fears that the growing popularity of right-wing parties is threatening to “kill” the green agenda.

As THAIMBC News reported, recent elections in Europe have seen a historic surge toward right-wing, nationalist, and populist parties.

After getting crushed in the European Parliament elections, France’s far-left globalist President Emmanuel Macron dissolved the French parliament and called a snap election.

In addition, Belgium’s anti-Trump Prime Minister Alexander De Croo quit after his liberal party was trounced in local elections.

This uprising has triggered panic among globalists who now fear the green agenda will be shut down.

Surging right-wing parties will dismantle the World Economic Forum’s “Net Zero” agenda, Green politicians have said.

Nationalist forces will overturn European laws that force nations to comply with the WEF’s “Net Zero” targets, they said.

“For them, the next horizon, the next battle, is indeed to kill these green, woke policies,” said Philippe Lamberts, the co-president of the European Greens.

“Osmosis” with traditional right-wing parties was already weakening EU green laws, Lamberts said.

However, Lamberts fears the “rise of the Right” could impact new bills and reviews of existing “Net Zero” legislation.

Green parties dropped from the fourth-largest group in the European Parliament to the sixth.

It comes just five years after their best-ever results in 2019 following Greta Thunberg’s climate protests.

Anti-EU, and often climate skeptic, parties performed strongly in the EU elections on Sunday.

Farmers’ tractor protests against green laws have paralyzed Europe for months.

Lamberts said many traditional parties had supported Net Zero after the mass youth demonstrations.

However, they now abandoned their support of it after it has become increasingly apparent that green agenda policies seek to promote the globalist agenda and have little to do with the environment.

“There is a clear and present danger to the future of the European Green Deal,” the Belgian MEP told The Telegraph.

Right-wing leaders such as Geert Wilders want the Dutch to leave the Paris Agreement on “climate change.”

Italy’s conservative Giorgia Meloni described the EU as waging a “holy war” with green issues.

The two most important issues facing the EU are the war in Ukraine and immigration, according to voters in a Eurobarometer survey.

Fifth was “climate change,” behind the cost of living.

Rising costs and inflation were the most important challenges facing voters, polls showed, outstripping the climate in fifth.

In the years after the 2019 elections, the European Greens could sway EU climate legislation as it was drawn up to hit Net Zero.

It was a flagship policy for Ursula von der Leyen, a former board member at the WEF.

She was narrowly approved by just nine votes as European Commission president by the parliament.

Von der Leyen, the lead candidate for the European People’s Party (EPP), is now hoping for a second five-year term as the unelected head of the EU executive.

As green issues became an election battleground, the EPP, fearful of losing ground to the Right, successfully called for a weakening of strict EU protections for the wolf.

It narrowly failed to torpedo the bloc’s nature restoration biodiversity law last year but watered it down significantly.

The EPP has also vowed to reverse the EU ban on combustion-engine cars as soon as possible.

John Hyland, the Greenpeace EU spokesman, said:

“Von der Leyen’s party has spent the last two years flirting with the far-right, blocking and scrapping laws that would protect nature and work towards a safe climate.”

After tractor protests hit Brussels in February, Von der Leyen caved.

The commission ditched green proposals to halve pesticide use, cut agricultural emissions, and a call for citizens to eat less meat.

Tractors returned to Brussels this week in what the Greens branded a “far-right event”.

“I know nothing about what a politician does, but they also don’t know what farmers do either,” Bart Dickens, a Belgian beef farmer, told reporters.

“We have to move to the Right.

“I’m sure of it. With the Left, everything is like flower power, but that’s not real life.”

Bas Eickhout, the lead candidate for the Greens, said:

“The far-right has been feeding farmers with the lie that Europe, and the Green Deal, are to blame for their hardship.”

A majority right-wing parliament could amend new climate legislation but also weaken existing laws as they come up for review.

A law banning the sale of beef, soy, palm oil, wood, rubber, coffee, and chocolate from deforestation areas was passed last year.

Some governments are already calling for implementation to be delayed.

It is up for review by the end of 2024 and 2025 to see if it can be extended to woodland and later other ecosystems such as wetlands.

The EU’s target of a 90 percent net emissions reduction could also be overturned.

Energy efficiency and renewable targets are up for review in 2027, as are rules for the energy performance of buildings in 2028.

Prof Frank Furedi, director of the conservative MMC think tank, said:

“A lot of these policies on Net Zero have been invented in the boardrooms of EU politicians without consideration of their impact on ordinary people.

“Most ordinary people think the green agenda is something that is alien to their lives and undermines their living standards.”
