Boris Johnson battling alone on world stage to save COP26 climate conference as other countries demand it be delayed

BORIS Johnson is now battling alone on the world stage to save the COP26 climate conference this year as other countries demand it be delayed.

Ministers are reluctant to put the international summit on Zoom instead, meaning a delay for a second year running looks more and more likely.

Government sources stressed they want an in-person and “inclusive” event to bring world leaders together to fight climate change.

But insiders admitted it’s up in the air thanks to rising Covid cases around the world.

A diplomatic source told The Sun: “Britain is increasingly isolated on this front. 

“No one in Europe thinks it’s going to happen and the US are increasingly sceptical it can happen without a delay.”

President Biden is hosting a virtual climate summit for Earth Day next week which could pile on more pressure to put it off.

Britain has vaccinated over half the adult population so far, but other countries around the world are lagging behind and seeing another wave of the virus.

It came as climate warrior Greta Thunburg said this week she would boycott the Glasgow event and called for it to be delayed until global jab rates have risen.

Greta is no longer active in the UK now that the covid scare has supplanted the climate scare. Some of her supporters at the University of Winchester recently controversially erected a memorial to her, but it might yet be toppled. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-hampshire-56565683

In the US, we went through a terrible summer where thoughtless young people toppled statues of abolitionists in order to combat “racism”. Is it too much to ask of thoughtless British youths to do the same to Greta’s statue in the name of “climate”?

I do suggest that a person could have LOTS of fun posing with that statue where Greta’s finger is going into various interesting places. Challenge issued to all English sceptics.

If that statue is made of bronze or any other metal it has a large CO2 footprint, if it is of synthetic resin than it has a large oil content, either way making of it contradicts Greta’s climate change philosophy. It is an embarrassment to Greta not to mention ‘the finger’. Topple it over, now.

Apparently, they let the sheep die naturally of old age, then take out the stomach whole with all its last contents undisturbed, put it on a recycled cardboard plate, sprinkle it with shredded kale, then serve it while still warm(ish).

When there are events with a large influx of money, temporary workers will follow. When Super Bowl week hits, local entertainers often complain that a large portion of the money goes to workers from out of town instead of giving preference to local talent.

I was working at a nearby family restaurant when the 49ers and Dolphins played in SBXIX. We had a large breakfast party of high rollers that a Las Vegas casino had flown up for the game! They brought their own hookers, so using the restroom was quite an adventure that morning! I don’t think any of my co-workers were miffed!

As I used to say back in the Hippie days in the late 60s, “Look at his (her) hair and imagine what their brain looks like.”

Boris has a very strange self-image and looks like what the spiked, colored hair crowd wants—they want to be stared at, so stare away. You have to work to get your hair that way.

I do not understand how anybody takes him seriously, when he does not do so for himself. Would you deposit your money in a bank in which the teller is shabby and unkempt? Of course not. If they cannot get their act together, how can they keep your money together and safe?

The other thing not mentioned in the article is that the SNP who run the administration of Scotland absolutely hate Johnson, so much so that they booked every single available venue so that Johnson didn’t have anywhere to go.

It has the makings of an utter disaster and with the threat of a likely lockup in the autumn (because the SNP are just nuts), it could well turn into a total fiasco.

And Glasgow in November is a pretty dreary place. It is dark, windy and often unpleasantly wet. And you can tell the foreigners … because they are the ones with sodden clothes looking very cold and miserable holding the umbrellas blown inside out.

And in November almost all the tourist sites are shut. It’s too early for snow … it’s too late to see the autumn colours.

Another problem is there aren’t enough hotels in Glasgow for the number they say would come. I can see them being bused in from all kinds of places … where they can all enjoy the delights of the traffic queues on the M8 in the morning (again you can tell the foreigners … because they’re the one tightly gripping their steering wheels with no idea where they are going as cars flash past them on all sides … who eventually find themselves heading off the motorway into some drug ridden estate with no idea how to get back on).

It was thought that Boris Johnson was (and may still be) a CAGW skeptic, but the problem on his hands now is that the UK has gone so far down the Green Energy yellow brick road that its economy is no longer globally competitive.
comment image

So, he has two options:

1] Eat the cost and rebuild the grid with carbon and nuclear and suffer the wrath of the Green Blob and the Biden Administration.

2] Double down and try to get the world to decarbonize and create the same energy inefficiencies in the economies of the UK’s competitors. And that includes going all in on COP26 and things like a carbon border tax:

Boris Johnson’s G7 dilemma: Carbon border tax proposals vs geopolitical realism
https://www.thegwpf.com/boris-johnsons-g7-dilemma-carbon-border-tax-proposals-vs-geopolitical-realism/

Basically, the UK (and German) economy is fooked… and until they reckon with that, they will go around clutching a straws. Or hope that the hapless Joe Biden and John Kerry, who can’t find their out of a paper bag, will lead the world on to a great green reset. (lol)

This climate game is about to lead to war.
This BBC article shows that the “west” is now arrogantly barking orders at China, for instance, to close down all 1000 of its coal power stations which they imbecilically claim is more expensive than intermittents. Yes in a rigged autocratic command economy like the USA or U.K. but not in a free market like China.

https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-56761344

The time has come for countries like China and Russia to respond to the west with its imperialistic climate demands by telling them to put the climate agenda where solar panels do not work. To abandon completely the whole idiotic circus of feeble minded catastrophist nonsense.

Then the gloves will come off and the herd muttering and jowl-flapping will turn in the direction of “climate terrorism” and “holding the world hostage” and “the children”. Climate as “causus belli”.

Then will come world war 3. Every environmentalists’ dream come true. Finally a role for the nuclear ☢️ industry who won’t be left out any more. Good times!

The 7 tenets of the IPCC

  • CO2 is a well-mixed gas in the atmosphere
  • CO2 increases temperature
  • Temperatures will increase by between 1.5 and 5.0 Deg C
  • Storms will become more frequent and more severe
  • Drought will occur more frequently and be more severe
  • Floods will occur more frequently and be more severe
  • Sea levels will rise by meters

The facts show
:

  • There is no empirical evidence CO2 is a well mixed gas in the atmosphere in Glasgow
  • There is no empirical evidence CO2 increases temperature (the correlation is negative, as such the opposite occurs) in Glasgow
  • There is no empirical evidence temperatures have increased in Glasgow
  • There is no empirical evidence of more frequent or severe storms in Glasgow
  • There is no empirical evidence of more frequent or severe droughts in Glasgow
  • There is no empirical evidence of more frequent of severe floods in Glasgow
  • There is no empirical evidence of sea level rise in single or multiple meters it would take 526 years to reach 1m near Glasgow

It is going to be a bit embarrassing for the IPCC to spout their 7 principles when none of them apply to the place they will be holding their conference.

A second consecutive year with no IPCC COP meeting would be the best damn thing to come from Covid-19.

Boris Johnson actually growing a spine and getting coal and natural gas back into the electrical generation game is too much to hope for. Greta, an angry, autistic, spoiled Swedish teen ignoramus and her father have him whipped.

The reason the congenital liar and ignorant buffoon that we have as Prime Minister in the UK – and only because the alternative choice in the election was much worse!!! – wants COP26 to go ahead is because he wants to preen and pose and feed his vanity at the event.

Or because the UK as a whole is definitely heading in a green direction?

Figures from March 14th show that, in the UK alone, the current overall pipeline for renewables and energy storage projects stands at 86GW of viable projects, according to Cornwall Insight.

The energy analyst said 40.6GW of the pipeline for England, Wales, and Scotland held a development status of ‘scoping’, with such sites having had a grid connection confirmed with National Grid’s register, but having not yet submitted a planning application.

Around 13GW of the pipeline is currently classified as ‘application submitted’, while sites deemed to be ‘awaiting construction’ stand at a total of 24.5GW, and those under construction total 7.8GW, according to Cornwall Insight.

“We are currently seeing increased activity in sites classified as scoping, with recent developments in the offshore leasing rounds being undertaken by the Crown Estate and Crown Estate Scotland,” explained Cornwall Insight analyst Lucy Dolton. “As such, Cornwall Insight’s Renewables Pipeline Tracker now accounts for these sites in its analysis, helping us assess the potential trends from the next Scotwind Leasing round and future Contracts for Difference (CfD) Allocation Rounds.”

We need to do more than just suspend Cop26, we need end the funding for the IPCC and tear up the Paris Accord.
