You're doing it wrong: coercing to timestamp already involves a rotation
to local time, and then "at time zone" says to interpret that as a time
in UTC, and the output is a timestamptz which will be displayed in your
local time.

I think the result you want is more like

        select (now() at time zone 'utc')::timestamp(0);

although personally I'd choose some other way of dropping the fractional
second, probably

        select current_timestamp(0) at time zone 'utc';
