JUSTIN TIME - The Canadian Prime Minister gave a flawless speech at COP26, leading the charge against rising temperatures on planet earth. Though included in the Dirty Dozen because of oil exports and deforestation, the move to cap emissions from producers - coupled with the pledge of significant funding for transition to cleaner technology, makes Mr Trudeau a clear climate champion, on a par with Sir David Attenborough, Leonardo di Caprio and John Kerry, except that Canada is still exporting fossil fuels.
UNDERTAKER POLICIES - There were some 8 million deaths globally in 2018 from cancer caused by air pollution. It is worse than Covid19 at 5,078,234 so far in two years (@ November 2021). Thus air pollution from diesel and petrol vehicle exhausts is 3 times more dangerous than Covid19. But the particulate and smog problems are not receiving the attention it deserves. Yet, Jair Bolsonaro stands accused of crimes against humanity for failing to deal with the pandemic. But then if cancer is a bigger killer, surely failing to deal with air pollution, is also a crime against humanity. As per the UN's Articles 3 and 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: the right to life and prohibition of inhumane treatment (or torture). We would argue that any form of anthropogenic-ally induced cancer constitutes torture. And that makes any world leader who fails to adequately seek prevention - a climate criminal.
They say "all is fair in love and war." Well, the world is at war. It is those suffering from climate warming, against those causing global change. In which case it is fair play to call a spade a spade, name names and review the media, with comment where appropriate. If they thought they could get away with sitting on their hands as they watch people die in far off lands, and then blame it on the others (also doing little), they were wrong. Their children and grandchildren will make sure of that!
The fossil fools continue with senile policies borne of geriatric investments, that were thought to be safe by generations of voters who were told that car exhausts did not cause lung cancer, and that the world was not warming from CO2. But they used to say the world was flat! Scientists who said otherwise were branded heretics, and persecuted. Today, everyone knows the world is round, and most people know humans are causing global warming.
Countries that thumb their noses at climate change, such as to increase harmful pollution, might have to face criminal prosecution via the International Criminal Court, and the tenets of the Rome Statute of 1998. Whereby it is a criminal offence to cause hurt to another human, from your actions or failure to act to prevent harm.
GLOBAL WARMING - The cause of much famine is man-made is global warming. As our climate heats up, the artic ice melts causing ocean levels to rise and agricultural land to become deserts. The most influential world leaders, of the G7 and G20 are fully aware of the consequences of failing to act in sufficient time to prevent Geographical Genocide. According to the 1948 Convention, Genocide is a crime. Any person or state advocating policies that do not seek to reduce climate warming, are therefore criminals; logically. The excuse that their economy might suffer, is no excuse when it comes to (in effect) murdering other groups of human beings. There must be zero tolerance. It is the insatiable lust for economic growth that has caused the deaths of millions of displaced persons and those who died of lung cancer. The agendas of guilty nations are not that dissimilar to those pursued by Nazi Germany and must be constrained for the protection of our most vulnerable groups, such as the Island Nations.
Frankly, we are not amused. Current pledges from world leaders are roughly one third of what is needed to keep the planet under 1.5 degrees temperature rise. Hence, we need to pull out all the lobbying stops before COP27 in Egypt. So that world leaders get the message, that it's no longer a strategy, to stand by and watch 7-8 million humans die each year from lung cancer and respiratory diseases - business as usual - blah, blah, blah. It is butchery and an extremely painful death at that, on a far bigger scale than the mass-murders in concentration camps, during WWII. With 300,000,000 million and more lives at stake, to 2050, based on current statistics.
We are a small concern without a significant budget to be able to address global warming via technology, but will endeavour to name and shame - giving those identified an opportunity to respond to any allegation, to ensure fair and balanced reporting. Any failure to respond, will undoubtedly be taken as an admission by the voting public. Please see the Glasgow Climate Pact, as being some slight improvement on COP21. We are extremely concerned that with India and China unrepentant, indeed, admitting to increasing the use of coal, that their leaders are not being prosecuted in the International Criminal Court.
THE DIRTIEST DOZEN - WORLD'S WORST HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS & DENIERS
It is widely reported that the 'climate' big deal in 2021 was FLOP 26. Postponed from 2020, it finally got an airing in November 2021. Just in time to spoil Christmas for next generations - as many of the big players cried off, seeking to extend targets to 2060-2070, all the while sentencing people less fortunate to inhumane treatment, followed by a slow death. Are these world leaders any better than the Nazis who gassed people inconvenient to their agendas? We think not! What is a modern day Nazi?
One bright ray of hope for all climate campaigners, is Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. If every world leader would act similarly and commit transparently, we may make the targets to save the planet. Even so Canada is still a major polluter and exporter of fossil fuel - hence - fossil fools, operating on geriatric policies.
If we don't act now to curb climate change we can kiss goodbye to the planet as we know it. That is what the scientific community has been warning us about for years. But, our leaders are still acting deaf and dumb, as investment senility sets in. Carrying on, business as usual, as they rake in the cash. Yet the technology exists, and all they need to do is enact policy changes to alleviate human suffering.
RISING SEA LEVELS - As the G20 keep pumping carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the Earth's atmosphere, our ice caps are melting, making sea levels rise. Continuing with their economies such as to make life impossible for island nations is illegal, according to the Genocide Convention and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
This prompted yet more protests in London in August and September 2020 from Extinction Rebellion, and motorway madness in 2021 from Insulate Britain - and who can blame them after COP-OUT25. Protestors also chanted outside the event venue in Glasgow. We would urge activists to enter the world of politics, to unseat the geriatrics and fight them from within.
Here's hoping for something better in November 2022, and that will soon be upon us - with signs of climate pain in the form of energy shortages, petrol electricity and coal (with China begging Australia for more). When we should be pushing for green hydrogen, solar and wind power. But there we are. And did we mention the timber and copper shortages, with prices in the UK almost doubling in 12 months. See our reforestation formula.
CONSERVATIVE CORRUPTION - Wow! How many Tory MPs are on the make with other jobs and consultancy engagements, when they are supposed to be representing their constituents, not claiming expenses for time they are working for other clients - and allowances for rents, while renting out their properties as landlords. In our view, that must constitute fraud. Not only are these MPs not working for the electorate who are paying taxes for their services, but the role they are supposed to fill, is not being done. This goes a long way to explaining how some MPs are so rich, and fossil fuel giants have been allowed to continue "business as usual" for so long. See pre COP26 September 2021 cabinet reshuffle. Hopefully, the trimming and pruning may yield climate benefits in 2022, once the corruption dust settles.
POLICY CHANGES - International policies need to change to accelerate green technology, to make up for lost time.
We have just 10 years to try and reverse the global warming trend. There will be 9 years remaining after that event - and we all know how slow to react the UN is! But following Donald the Trumpeter, and now with a clown in 10 Downing Street, what chance have we? Maybe it's time for a vote of no-confidence, and a special election. It's not funny Boris. You had no business masquerading as a politician. But then it is the fault of the voter, for falling for his promises - that turned out to be untrue.
What chance have we as a species? We doubt the G7 ever will be able to change, meaning COP 26 will be FLOP26, leading to FLOP27. Countries that condone immoral earnings and coal burning, are nothing less than Climate Nazis.
UN'S IPCC CODE RED - Although not actually using the above terminology in the Report, August 2021, it has been interpreted by most people reading the document as a Code Red for Humanity. Code Red is equal to DefCon1, in military terms.
UP S--T CREEK WITHOUT A PADDLE - Seven billion people are being governed by politicians without the will to implement solutions. Look to your local authority and you will see that it is business as usual. Floods! What floods? It's not our fault. Yes dear Councillor, it is. And it's the Prime Minister's fault for letting you get away with it. Sadly, in the UK, Boris and his band of merry men are in favour of climate unfriendly housing. On the flip side of the coin, the Cabinet appear to be in favour of zero emission motoring - and even shipping.
What is happening local to you is happening all over the world. Very little. No change at all on UK housing policy, just a bit of lip service to get themselves re-elected.
Covid 19 lockdowns are a good example of the limitations we should be imposing to tackle climate change. Only the bare necessities.
Politicians are more worried about economic growth, but continuous growth is suicide when you only have one planet to provide food for a blossoming population. We cannot continue to grow economies where the planet (land and sea) have already over-reached sustainable capacity. We reached the safe limits for exploitation of Earth using fossil fuels many years ago. Hence, the rise in global temperature continues unchecked because of lunatic empire builders and oil cartels, all betting on continued reliance on fossil fuels, with cooperation from corrupt politicians, bought with party contributions, allegedly!
BITCOIN MINING SCAMS & BOGUS TRADING - In our view, there is no such thing as perpetual motion, including in the world of money. It is utter nonsense to suggest that money can be made, without someone somewhere actually producing something. The suggestion that we can all be $millionaires by operating supercomputers that warm the planet without regulation is crazy and immoral. If all we need do is invest $180 dollars, as has been supported by the likes of Elon Musk, to become wealthy, without lifting a finger. Then who is farming our crops, building our homes and making our vehicles? Real workers who provide real services should be rewarded with security, against cyber-climate criminals and leaching scammers. The energy used in relation to rewards is set to derail COP26 and follow on conference negotiations. Like unregulated stock market trading, Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies must be outlawed to help combat global warming and destabilization of sustainable economies.
Oil megalomaniacs are living in denial. Banks are peddling fake money the planet cannot afford, based on promises they cannot keep. At least when we had the gold standard, countries had tangible limits. No gold, no paper money. Gold coins were "repayable to the bearer on demand." We need a $Food Dollar, to replace the gold of old. And crypto-currencies must be outlawed. They are eroding the very fabric of society with get rich quick, without working for it. These are immoral earnings.
We must do all in our power to retrace our footsteps to reduce atmospheric and ocean temperatures. We need more trees, zero carbon cars, zero carbon shipping and sustainable homes - meaning economic restructuring of planet earth and politicians who understand about good housekeeping. No more promises of Wealth creation. We need Health creation. The Health of the Planet, for healthy humans.
HOW DO WE MAKE THE PLANET SAFE AGAIN ?
The fact is that because we have left it so long, it may be too late to recover. Why? We may have reached the point of no return with so many species lost. WE ARE NEXT.
This is because our growing population needs feeding and to earn a living in a modern world that uses fossil fuels for just about everything - with several layers of financial burdens and then more taxes - adding to your carbon footprint. Even agriculture relies on diesel and fertilizers derived from fossil fuels.
That is why we are turning to the ocean to feed ourselves, and aquaculture - having drained our fisheries. Knowing this, we need to act now. NOT TOMORROW, RIGHT NOW. The urgency of the situation gives us the right to be offensive, if world leaders will not budge to save the future for our grandchildren.
Since 1995 members of the United Nations have been playing politics rather than taking binding action to prevent warming of the planet, in the full knowledge that human use of fossil fuels was/is to blame. From local councils to international councils, the rot is set in. Our politicians are responsible for the deaths of millions of animals and hundreds of thousands of humans in not acting to control greenhouse gas build up. They are Climate Criminals.
MELT DOWN - There is no point declaring a climate emergency and continuing to build conventional housing like there is no tomorrow. That is what is happening in Britain at the moment - a Great British foul up!
Human activities are releasing nearly 10 Gegatons of Carbon (about 36 Billion tons of CO2) into the atmosphere every year, driving atmospheric CO2 concentrations to 400 parts per million (ppm) from their pre-industrial levels of 280 ppm. This increase in CO2 and other greenhouse gases concentrations traps additional energy in the earth's climate system.
EMERGENCY ACTIONS: SIX STEPS TOWARD A COOLER PLANET
Six suggested steps toward reversing global warming include building carbon neutral housing, driving clean cars and changing to renewable energy. The hardest change to make is political, concerning policies and policy making to ensure that local authorities stop empire building, thus increasing their carbon footprints. If all local councils act the same, which they do, they are to blame for the planet getting hotter. National leaders simply must take control of their countries, not allow the wishes of the people and future generations to be ignored.
