As another travelling circus of climate ‘delegates’ jet off to their annual conference, generating vast amounts of CO2 to get there and back, the claim that such minor trace gases in the atmosphere are a dire threat to the world gets talked up again. But we’ve heard it all before, many times.

Countries must re-prioritise climate change or the world faces catastrophe, the UN chief has told BBC News.

Secretary General António Guterres was speaking in New York ahead of a major climate conference in Egypt.

“There has been a tendency to put climate change on the back burner,” he said. “If we are not able to reverse the present trend, we will be doomed.”

The conference, known as COP27, will bring together countries to discuss tackling climate change.

Mr Guterres said that current global problems such as inflation, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the high prices of energy and food were distracting governments.

“Bring back climate change to the centre of the international debate,” he urged.

The UN chief insisted that leaders should not abandon key goals, including keeping global temperature rise to 1.5C, in order to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

He said he would like to see both King Charles III and new UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak attending COP27, saying King Charles has been a “constant voice” calling attention to the problem of climate change.

    Today it’s the same sort of vacuous message, different messenger that’s all.

  4. Graeme No.3 says:

    My idea is for all the warnings/waffle about the coming Climate Catastrophe before the past 26 Climate Conferences be recycled (as is being done) and everyone of the delegates stay at home. Think of the enormous reduction in CO2 emissions that would supply.

    In numbers: The state of the climate ahead of Cop27
    Published on 28/10/2022

    We’re headed for 2.4-2.8C of warming

    The Emissions Gap report described progress made since the Cop26 climate talks in Glasgow as “woefully inadequate”.
    . . .
    The report adds that investments worth at least $4-6 trillion are needed to decarbonise the global economy.

    Etc. etc. 🥱

    If alarmists have their way back burners will go the way of the dodo.

    Gamecock wonders how many delegates have asked the internet, “Can you get alcohol in Egypt?”

    There is no climate problem. Extra life giving CO2 is greening the planet.

    The UN’s Antonio Guterres: Misinformed About Climate Change Or Serial Liar?

    ‘Facts have never bothered Antonio Guterres since his prime mission has always been about de-industrialising and taking money from developed nations to give it to developing countries under the guise of climate compensation. He continues to make wild, unsubstantiated statements…’

  10. oldbrew says:

    ‘Government pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions put the planet on track for an average 2.8 degrees Celsius temperature rise this century, after “woefully inadequate” progress to curb warming, a United Nations report said.’

    The uselessness continues 🙄

    The insanity of the UN climate COP’s continues

    ‘It is likely that, in the period leading up to COP27, there will be a barrage of news announcements about one or another weather event that is allegedly unprecedented, directly caused by rich country emissions, and likely to pose an existential crisis for the planet, to set the stage for environmentalists and the media to pressure western leaders. They will not succeed as the absurdity of these efforts is beginning to register upon the blackmailed countries.’

    Sinking Alexandria faces up to coming catastrophe

    “The West has a moral responsibility: it must help to counter the negative effects of climate change, which are the result of its civilisation” and industrialised model.

    And Egypt will be hammering that message home when the UN COP27 climate talks open there on November 6.

    But Alexandria has a very long history of problems with sea levels, going back long before modern industry came along…

    Subsidence model of the ancient Alexandria Royal port linked to sea-level rise and natural hazards using integrated geophysical methods (2021)

    The results of this study confirmed the subsidence of the ancient port mainly as a result of sea-level rises and the 365 AD tsunami.
    . . .
    The geoarchaeological investigations showed that the ancient ports** suffered several subsidences during the last 2000 years.

    Observed long-term sediment accumulations are also discussed in this study.
