State officials have attended a new university master’s course in the Paris outskirts on the “risk of collapse and adapting to it”, while Facebook is awash with groups, including a popular one called: “Adoptez un collapso: let’s meet before the end of the world.”
La collapsologie, which Édouard Philippe, the prime minister, calls a personal obsession, is based on the assumption that climate change, declining resources and the extinction of species is driving the world to its destruction far more quickly than we imagine.
Warmist reporter Amy Harder of Axios: 'I think it is going to be difficult to acknowledge, In order to address climate change, you need to make fossil fuels more expensive and there appears to be this disconnect between that reality and what countries are willing to put on the table at countries like this in Poland...At a certain point, you can't expect to hold more conferences to get more ambition. You really have to change the energy policies in different countries.'
'We are seeing outside the bubble that is these climate talks, you are seeing this is very difficult. France saw a lot of violent protests over among other things higher fuel costs because of taxes. I think it is going to be very difficult when push comes to shove to institute policies that will make energy costs more expensive...another conference won't achieve that.'
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: "Climate change is making the world more dangerous. NATO’s task is to preserve peace and keep us safe. So to fulfill our main responsibility, NATO must help to curb climate change for our security today and for the security of future generations."
"I have been passionate about climate change all of my life. My first job in government was as Deputy Environment Minister, and I had the privilege of serving as UN Special Envoy on Climate Change. Now, as NATO Secretary General, it is my responsibility to address the threat climate change poses to our shared security. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time."
