President Volodymyr Zelensky must have an inkling that his unlimited check could soon be running out because the Ukrainian president is trying out a new sales pitch to world leaders: We need to defeat Russia, or evil dictators will “weaponize” the damaging effects of climate change.

Zelensky made his case in the form of a lecture on Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly.

“Even though humanity is failing on its climate policy objectives, this means that extreme weather will still impact normal global life and some evil state will also weaponize its outcomes,” he said. “And when people in the streets of New York and other cities of the world went out on climate protest — we all have seen them — and when people in Morocco and Libya, and other countries die as a result of natural disasters, and when islands and countries disappear underwater, and when tornadoes and deserts are spreading into — into new territories, and when all of this is happening, one, a natural disaster in Moscow, decided to launch a big war and killed tens of thousands of people. We have to stop it.”

So it seems Zelensky is implying that Russian President Vladimir Putin took advantage of climate change — global boiling as the U.N. calls it — to attack Ukraine.

“We must act, united to defeat the aggressor and focus all our capabilities and energy on addressing these challenges,” he added. “As nukes are restrained, likewise, the aggressor must be restrained at all his tools and methods of the war.”

Zelensky must have heard President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry preach last spring that “money, money, money” is what makes green energy move. It’s smart financially for Zelensky to signal that he’s down with the cause.

If he wants the free world to continue sending him billions of dollars to defeat Russia, he knows he has to express certain 21st-century doctrines of the West — such as believing in climate change.


Now, Zelensky is heading to Washington, D.C., where he’ll request $24 billion from the U.S. Congress. He won’t have to work that hard for the money in D.C. The Uniparty is all on in Ukraine still.
