World leaders have made complete fools of themselves at UN climate summit promoting ‘utter unscientific garbage’

Climate conference transport

Is anyone anywhere impressed by COP26? Maybe those who enjoy tiresome heard-it-all-before apocalyptic-sounding climate waffle, or like travelling at someone else’s expense. The rest are left to cringe.

By Melanie Phillips – a British journalist, broadcaster and author whose weekly column currently appears in The Times of London.

What would happen if a doomsday cult were to take over the world? Science fiction? No. It’s happened.

How else to explain the collective lunacy of the COP26 meeting in Glasgow, an absolute farce where world leaders made complete fools of themselves?

There’s been much criticism of the hypocrisy of the event, with hundreds of private jets flying into Glasgow to hector the world about reducing carbon emissions.

Far, far worse has been the total erasure of rationality in the hysterical chorus that this was the “last chance to save the planet” — and the fact that no-one in mainstream debate has challenged this as utter unscientific garbage.

Britain’s prime minister, Boris Johnson, said in his address:

It’s one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and we need to act now.

Pledging once again to make Britain the “Saudi Arabia of wind power,” he said people were

quilting the earth in an invisible and suffocating blanket of CO2, raising the temperature of the planet with a speed and an abruptness that is entirely man-made.

Was this the same Boris Johnson who in 2015 called the concern that global warming was causing rising temperatures a “primitive fear” which was “without foundation,” and who claimed in 2013 that wind turbines couldn’t “blow the skin off a rice pudding”? It was.

Speaker after speaker said COP 26 was the planet’s last chance to save itself from extinction through climate change. Do none of these people ever stop and wonder why this very same claim has been made over the years with just as much urgency —only to be made again when the climate apocalypse hasn’t happened or has been once more mysteriously postponed?

At COP26 on Monday, we were told we had until 2050 to save the planet. We were “quite literally” in the “last chance saloon,” said Prince Charles.

Addressing the Copenhagen climate summit in 2009, Prince Charles had told delegates “our planet has reached a point of crisis and we have only seven years before we lose the levers of control”. Which set the last chance saloon in 2016.

In 2018, climate scientists said there were 12 years to save the planet. Which took the last chance saloon to 2030.

In July 2019, the BBC’s environment correspondent Matt McGrath wrote there were now 18 months to save the planet since

the decisive, political steps to enable the cuts in carbon to take place will have to happen before the end of next year.

    Can just see the cartoon of “Oor Wullie” sitting on his think tank ( Bucket or cludgie ) havin a guid laugh

    It’s useless writing to our MPs pointing out the complete lack of scientific and engineering reality/integrity (I have written to mine numerous times), as they are completely sold into the climate change hysteria and refuse to think critically. So what to do? Can we make them personally liable for the disaster that’s about to unfold?

    Why does anyone refer to these Climate Cult exponents as leaders? Once upon a bedtime story they were called SERVANTS.

    Please, stop calling them leaders, as that implies those who follow them, and those who acknowledge that designation in their speech, are sheeple.

    Disown them in speech as well as at the poles. Referring to them as “leaders” is the tail trying to wag the dog. Complete the mindset here.

    Climate panto season nearly over…

  6. ilma630 says:

    I wonder if these ecomentalists deflated any EV tyres? Moreover, deflating tyres is conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm, as a deflated tyre can easily cause a serious accident. I bet the police stood by and did nothing, as usual. It will reach a point when the populous will take matters into their own hands, as they did on the London Underground a while ago.

  7. Curious George says:

    There is nothing as reassuring as a moving target.

  8. Gamecock says:

    Good point, JB November 12, 2021 at 2:11 pm

    They are elites, not leaders.

    The council saved this for the last day?

    Glasgow is going car free at the bargain price of £47,000 per each and every inhabitant

    What a bargain – wonder who’s paying?

  10. stpaulchuck says:

    so the Synod of the Church of the Satanic Gases has disbanded and dispersing to their home districts to convince the morons and moronettes that taxes can change the world temperature. As long as these Brahmans get the top cut of the take that is.

  11. Phoenix44 says:

    There are two types of people. Those who start from finding a problem and look for a solution and those who have a solution but need to find a problem.

    The vast majority of Alarmists are the latter, people with plenty of things they would like to happen and plenty of things they want us all to do. Climate change just provides their required problem.

  12. oldbrew says:

    Glasgow is going car free at the bargain price of £47,000 per each and every inhabitant

    So an electric car won’t help you there.

    Less than half of Brits care about what’s going on at COP26

    A new study has found that only 46% of the country are paying attention to the climate summit, with some people even thinking it’s taking place in London
    . . .
    Only 24% of respondents believe agreements would take place leading to the mitigation of the effects of climate change in the future and protecting the planet.

    It was a polling exercise.

    @ Gamecock
    I’ve never seen any of them as “elite.”

    Elite: the group or part of a group selected or regarded as the finest, best, most distinguished, most powerful, etc.(Webster)

    B5 Season 4 Ep 17
    “You’re still laboring under the notion that people take power. Nobody takes power! They’re given power by the rest of us, because we are stupid, or afraid, or both.”–William Edgars, Mars megacorp CEO

    This declaration also goes for those sheeple who designate them “elite.” Very few of them became wealthy except by theft, fraud, deceit, extortion, and blackmail (the rest by inheritance). When they manage to succeed at that, they hold up an image of superiority, believing their wealth can buy power among the impressed. And they know the system works.

    Crude Oil Is Back, And It Isn’t Going Anywhere
    Nov 11, 2021

    According to supermajor BP, global oil demand has already topped 100 million barrels per day (bpd) last seen before the pandemic.

    “We are at or about 2019 levels now,” Russell Hardy, CEO at the world’s biggest independent oil trader, Vitol, told the online Reuters Commodities Trading Conference this week, as carried by Bloomberg.

    And crude oil demand is set to continue rising into next year, Hardy added.
    . . .
    Although it has been demonized by activists in recent years, it will be the oil industry that will meet the world’s demand for energy for years and decades to come. Fossil fuels still account for 80 percent of total global energy consumption, while hundreds of millions of people in developing countries still do not have access to any energy source at all.

    Expensive renewables are far too lightweight in output to replace oil and gas worldwide.

    One US broadcaster showed a photo of Edinburgh Castle and said “Welcome to Glasgow”. Hilarious!

  17. tom0mason says:

    And now this COP is over,
    As the motorcades rush off,
    To their many private jets,
    Back to their usual trough.
    ,
    Less fake news paraded daily,
    Less excess climate deceit,
    Surely no one sane will miss it,
    Surely now less BBC conceit.

  18. Gamecock says:

    JB, Webster is dead. The legacy press decides who are elite. Based on who supports their agenda.

    Never mind, maybe one of the next 26 conferences will pull the fat out of the mythical fire 🙄

    Australian deputy PM mocks Alok Sharma’s emotional reaction at Cop26

    “You know, it annoys me … what’s the guy’s name? Was it the chairman Sharma in Glasgow,” Joyce said to the ABC. “He was with his gavel and oh, I’m almost crying, I can’t do this.”

    The Australian political leader also contended Sharma had displayed a double standard. “He wants to shut down our coal industry but he never talked about shutting down the oilfields in the North Sea, Brent oil, you know he doesn’t want to shut that down.”

    “He wants to shut down industries in other people’s countries, not in his country.”

    With Cambo holding the potential for reduced reliance on energy imports, improving the U.K.’s energy security in the coming years, the controversial oilfield development looks set to go ahead.

    Unless all fuel imports and fuel use are about to end, which they obviously aren’t, why stop this project?
