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.'
WWF International: "Transformative change is urgently needed in our productive sectors, including our food systems, forestry, fisheries, infrastructure and extractives, and in the finance sector. These transformations need to happen fast if we are to limit risks of higher restoration costs and irreversible damage, including new pandemics and species extinction. We must transform our food systems so that enough healthy and nutritious food is produced for all, within planetary boundaries."
