British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, speaking at the UN General Assembly, said that he was thinking about changing his name in honor of the god of the north wind in Greek mythology, and becoming Boreas Johnson to support renewable energy sources, writes The Guardian.
“We have built huge forests of wind turbines in the North Sea between Britain and the Netherlands. We produce so much energy thanks to the wind that I even thought of changing my name in honor of the god of the north wind and becoming Boreas Johnson,” the British prime minister said.
He built his speech on the problems of ecology and the fight against climate change in a comic style, and even remembered the character of the “Muppet Show” Kermit the frog.
“When Kermit the frog sang that it’s not easy to be green, I’ll say that he was wrong. This is both easy, pleasant, and correct,” Johnson said.
In conclusion, he warned that if urgent measures are not taken, ” we will make this beautiful planet virtually uninhabitable — not only for us but also for many other biological species.”
On September 14, the 76th session of the UN General Assembly officially opened in New York. On September 21, a high-level week began, which will be attended by leaders, heads of government, and ministries of the countries.
