In other words, they want to siphon off some of the money allocated for economic recovery into their pet climate projects, which are a known burden on any economy. For ‘climate ambition’ read ‘wishful thinking’.

Tackling climate change must be woven into the solution to the Covid-19 economic crisis, the UK will tell governments next week.

Environment ministers from 30 countries are meeting in a two-day online conference in a bid to make progress on cutting greenhouse gas emissions, reports BBC News.

The gathering is called the “Petersberg Climate Dialogue”.

It will focus on how to organise a “green” economic recovery after the acute phase of the pandemic is over.

The other aim is to forge international agreement on ambitious carbon cuts despite the postponement of the key conference COP26 – previously scheduled for Glasgow in November (now without a date).

Alok Sharma, the UK Climate Secretary and president of COP26, said: “I am committed to increasing global climate ambition so that we deliver on the Paris Agreement (to stabilise temperature rise well below 2C).

“The world must work together, as it has to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, to support a green and resilient recovery, which leaves no one behind.

“At the Petersberg Climate Dialogue, we will come together to discuss how we can turn ambition into real action.”

The informal conference is co-hosted by the UK and Germany.

    We donated thrilling tax support on which they thrived, masking their plot to absolutely crush freedom. The price for financial support we volunteered deep state of naivety:

    From now on citizens, there will be no walk in the park.
    You want to launch a boat? Forget it.
    Children playing outside? Strictly off limits.
    Need to earn money to pay for food and shelter? That’s not allowed.
    Why? Hell needs to be engUNnearred to begUN hellpIT.

    I think it will soon be a case of ‘Wizard of Id’ cartoon time with the peasants revolting or piano wire and lamp posts. We should have all expected this because of Boris and his green agenda plus there is also Soros in the wings helping this stupidity with a few million in brown envelopes handed out to the ‘right’ people. What a state the country has fallen into.

  8. Paul Vaughan says:

    Let me be the first to finally suggest what I’ve been thinking for quite awhile now:

    Front Line = Decisive Failure (Trial Finished, Conclusion Final)

    Spain and Itally should be kicked out of NATO for being absolutely useless allies in the defense of freedom.

    What to do AB out France is a vexing problem. Last time around they led reforms that were important to God. This time they are with SatUN opposing God.

    We may need to kick the whole EU out of NATO to successfully defend human rights and freedom. The poor-to-peak C ENSO R ship is hear ring SatUN’s D-lay to D-sign poise UN pill form EU LA.

    Rear Guard

    The biggest threat on the last line of freedom’s defense is democratic infiltrators in the american republican party who are determined to put 1000 of their old friends before billions of others of all ages.

    Worse: Where are God’s bravest who should be more than able to sort this out peacefully and efficiently?

    Leave the mission to none of the people who are snapping, most notably admistraitors whipping the public TO DEATH while D-signing poison pills no less.

    Responsible parties need to shelter the broader populace by knowing the red lines of their people and making sure they are not crossed (weather in Nova Scotia or Stock Home).

    This is where things are going savagely wrong.
    No viewpointing to real needs should be silenced.
    Break discussion off into rooms if necessary to keep nuclear powers separate so no one launches in anger, but the really talented diplomats who are actually capable of successful negotiation have to hear every voice so they go into negotiations with sharp knowledge of where all the red lines are.

    Sometimes smart negotiators want something completely different from what it looks like they are asking for in naive eyes. God’s wat.ch.UN to see who seizes every opportunity to misinterpret, misunderstand, and misrepresent. You can guess who:

    “Don’t feel like SatUN but eye am to them” — Kneel Young “Key pawn ROCkin UNfree world”
    These people should put their poison pills (acid attack in an open wound) aside.

    If they keep pushing administration of severe cruelty, the right thing to do is fire them peacefully, compassionately sheltering them from homelessness with adequate severance packages (we’re not looking to crush them the way they’re relentlessly looking to CRush us).

    A big less UN from all of this is what a nightmare it becomes civilization-wide when one volunteers to donate taxes to people who turn around in a spree of fierce cruelty biting and otherwise terrorizing the hands that feed. There has to be a mechanism by which to immediately remove pets from office when they turn terrorist and start attacking the public with UN poison pill scheme after UNother.

    Lubos Motl has a thread on it.

    In comments he says:
    If we reduced our emissions by more than 50% for years, the CO2 would begin to drop! It would still take decades for that drop to be clearly seen in any temperature data.
