BUST: ‘I am deeply sorry’: UN climate summit ends in tears – COP FLOP: Greta sums up as ‘Blah, blah, blah’
COP 26 President Alok Sharma, MP hung his head and proclaimed through tears, “May I just say to all delegates, I apologize for the way this process has unfolded and I am deeply sorry.” - Watch COP 26 President tear up
COP 26 has finally come to an end. There is even a new agreement. Yet as he made his closing remarks COP 26 President Alok Sharma, MP hung his head and proclaimed through tears, “May I just say to all delegates, I apologize for the way this process has unfolded and I am deeply sorry.”
Watch COP president:
President Biden’ climate envoy John Kerry tried to declare victory, but the Left is livid.
Minutes before nearly 200 nations adopted the final agreement, India, working with China, stepped in to protect coal.
Kerry has been making much of the fact that The Glasgow Climate Pact is the first climate agreement to actually name a fossil fuel. However, India amended the agreement to change “phase out” of coal to “phase down.” For China and India this actually means INCREASE coal. Both nations are expanding coal burning as fast as their economies can go. “Phase down” is the verbiage China suckered John Kerry into when China and the U.S. penned a side climate deal last week. Full text at CFACT.org. China promised Kerry to maybe think about phasing coal down during its 15th five year plan which doesn’t even start until 2026.
Here’s more of what has the climate-Left gnashing their teeth. The Glasgow Climate Pact:
Names coal, but not oil or gas;
Moves deadline for nations to submit new emissions reduction plans from 2025 to 2030;
Does not fund reparations for “loss and damage” when poor nations experience natural disasters;
Does not mandate ongoing public climate finance;
Contains weasel words such as “unabated” fossil fuels and “inefficient” subsidies leaving plenty of wiggle room;
Climate computer models project current emissions commitments leave the world warming 2.4 degress C;
UN Secretary General António Guterres said limiting warming to 1.5 degrees C is “on life support.”
Disappointment on the Left is a sure indicator that the free world dodged a bullet. However, there’s plenty of danger still lurking in the Glasgow Agreement. Carbon carpetbaggers came away smiling.
The sums of money changing hands in the name of climate are staggering. John Kerry is talking about $130 TRILLION dollars, not only through government mandates and spending, but through private finance. Kerry’s true constituents: the people selling subsidized wind, solar, batteries, offsets, carbon credits and the rest are ecstatic.
They may not know how to alter the temperature of the Earth, but they do know how to make a buck.
Add #FLOP26 to the 25 other failed eco-talk-fests.
Though, it’s not really a ‘failure’. It just means that they can continue the “climate crisis” in perpetuity.
Update: Greta Thunberg: ‘COP26 even watered down the blah, blah, blah’ – Greta Thunberg says the outcome of COP26 is a disappointment as there is still no guarantee the planet’s temperature rise will be limited to 1.5C. The climate campaigner told BBC Scotland: “They even succeeded in watering down the blah, blah, blah which is quite an achievement.”
Billions of dollars were wasted for another farce, the CO2 emissions created by these morons are obviously the least of the problems because there exists nothing such as a global problem with the climate, let alone one caused by CO2, and even if there were a problem, the subtraction of carbon dioxide’s contribution, at most 0.01-0.02 °C, from the warming per year would clearly do nothing to avoid the problems. Do you really need to move 30,000 morons across the world and store them in hotels for 2 weeks if the only outcome is just another hateful remark about the fossil fuels which is completely detached from reality? ..
The degeneration of the society has led to the birth of an entire extraordinarily annoying and idiotic parasitic class that believes that they are doing a very important work e.g. if they fly to a distant hotel for 2 weeks, babble nonsense that reveals their complete scientific illiteracy…”
Paul Homewood: “India along with a host of like minded countries knew that they could not run their economies without coal and other fossil fuels, never mind grow them and relieve poverty. Faced with the whole Agreement being lost, Alok Sharma and the UN organisers backed down, and replaced the words “phase-out” with “phase-down”. Just one word changed, but its effect was devastating for the Agreement…The rest of the Agreement is pretty weak and ineffectual as well. It is full of terms such as “urges”, “requests” and “invites”, which mean there is no obligation on anybody to do anything.”
“The can was kicked down the road again in 2015 at Paris, when developing countries were given carte blanche to carry on increasing emissions…”We have seen the beginning of the end for the UN’s climate agenda. There will no doubt be many more COPs to come. And there will be annual warnings from Prince Charles that we have 12 more months to save the planet. But the writing is now on the wall. Developing countries around the world are standing up and refusing to cut back on fossil fuels, because they know they have no alternative if they want to grow their economies and give their people a better life.”
