COP26 Chaos: G20 Failure, Wild Weather, Tornado Strikes Pro-COP26 Church

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Not an auspicious start to the event which Prince Charles informs us is our last chance to save the world from 1.5C global warming.

COP crisis as hundreds of delegates are stranded in London after ‘extreme weather’ led to rail chaos on the line to Glasgow with Network Rail telling people to go home and try again in the morning

  • Winds up to 80mph are causing travel chaos and flooding across parts of the UK with further rain to come  
  • Hundreds of passengers are stuck at London Euston with all trains cancelled after tree fell on overhead wires
  • Passengers, many trying to reach Glasgow for Cop26, said it was  ‘ironic’ journeys were disrupted by storms
  • Met Office unable to rule out whether any tornadoes have taken place following reports of wind damage

Hundreds of delegates hoping to travel to Glasgow for the COP26 climate summit by train have been left stranded inside London’s Euston station tonight after torrential rain and 80mph gale-force winds saw trees fall on the railway lines and halt services.

Network Rail tonight urged passengers to go home and ‘travel tomorrow instead’ after the extreme weather caused damage to overhead electric lines. 

The railway company said they were ‘truly sorry’ for the disruption to passengers and admitted ‘today’s extreme weather got the better of us.’

James Delingpole reports a church was struck by a tornado during the middle of prayers for climate action.

The just completed G20 meeting, which was meant to hammer out remaining differences, adds to climate enthusiasts woes, with news that delegates at the G20 couldn’t agree on anything concrete.

‘Hopes unfulfilled’: G20 fails to agree on climate change goals

By David Crowe and Bevan Shields

November 1, 2021 — 4.43am

Rome: Leaders from the world’s biggest economies have fractured in a tense negotiation over climate change that has stalled hopes for a global pact to make deeper cuts to carbon emissions and phase out the use of coal.

The G20 leaders scaled back plans by some of the group’s most powerful members, including the United States and European Union, for an ambitious agreement that would set a collective goal to reduce emissions to net zero by 2050.

While the group backed the goal of limiting the rise in world temperatures, it made no firm commitments on how to keep the rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius after warnings from scientists two months ago on the need to reach that goal.

Leaders including British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged the outcome did not do enough to limit the rise to 1.5 degrees.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison opposed the deadline to phase out coal as well as a call to speed up cuts to methane emissions by 2030, a proposal the government believed would impose high costs on dairy and cattle farmers.

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres admitted the failure to agree on more ambitious action on climate change at the summit in Rome, but held out hope of a commitment from a wider group of leaders when they meet at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow on Monday.

“I leave Rome with my hopes unfulfilled – but at least they are not buried,” he said.

I’m guessing COP26 is not going to be the glorious success activists are hoping for, or in some cases praying for.

Consider all the CO2 already emitted just getting there, and now many of the useless, tedious meetings are cancelled.

With all that destructive wind, much electricity would have been produced, but not much solar.

You see, wind and solar cancel each other.

Not just that.

After i started some research i found out that i am a superhuman (just like everyone else here).
I survived so many doomsday predictions and catastrophies without even realising (just like polar bears and arctic ice).

I survived the ice age as a baby,the blue dust cloud,the population bomb the global warming that has passed so many points of no return and will pass so many more in the future.,
I survived the end of snow,meters of sea level rise,climate deniers (though i never ever met a person that denied the existence of climate).

On the other hand many guys in arab countries could not survive Obamas humanitarian aid.
Now my biggest scare is no longer the ultimate catastrophy that may start any time soon,as i will survive it once again,
but the philanthropy and humanism of marxist billionaires,politicians and experts that i am forced to accept,their social engineering, vaccines and zombie presidents who can only walk because their masters strings are strong enough to keep them upright.

Yup. Unlike the Stuarts and “Windsors”, no Hanoverian monarch was a traitor.

Georges I and II cared more about Hanover than Britain, but the two crowns’ interests aligned. At least George II could speak English, after a fashion. His son, Frederick, the Prince of Wales, spoke with a heavy accent, but loved cricket. His son, George III, was essentailly a native speaker of both languages, as was his granddaughter Victoria.

The English defeated or got rid of their Norse overlords. Unfortunately, they were replaced by Frankified Norsemen, the Norman dynasty and its follow-ons.

I’m an American, so think that the UK would be better off, if not with a republic, then with an elective monarchy, as under the Anglo-Saxons. It would give the House of Lords something to do, now that it’s no longer the supreme court.

Nah, the Medieval Warm Period came along, they didn’t think much of it so went back home to the climate they were used to it.

Lots of effective kings, too, but still few and far between.

ERII’s dad GRV did a great job for a stutterer who wasn’t supposed to have been king, and had to conceive his daughters by artificial insemination. Sadly, like his dad, GRV, smoking killed him before his time.

But his older brother Edward VIII, was a vile Nazi traitor.

I have to agree. Who in his or her right mind would want that degenerate, jug-eared twit or his nitwit spawn reigning over them?

Maybe some nostalgic monarchists in Merrie Olde, but in Canada, Oz and other former colonies, no way, Jose!

That’s why I suggest preserving the history and tourist-promoting pomp and ceremony of the monarchy, but return to lords electing their monarch. Britain is awash in retired men and women of great achievement in the armed forces, business, science, the arts and all endeavo(u)rs who could admirably serve the nation as monarch for life.

It was a semi-elective monarchy under the anglo-saxons, limited to a mere handful of the top families. Considering those top families had to prove they could do the job by ruling a large area of the country as an almost independent state, it would need a lot more reorganisation than you’d think.

In April 1320 the Scots told the Pope that they reserved the right to replace the King with a better one, should the incumbent not protect their freedom. As Roy Williamson said “When will we see your like again?”

But if he should cease from these beginnings, wishing to give us or our kingdom to the English or the king of the English, we would immediately take steps to drive him out as the enemy and the subverter of his own rights and ours, and install another King who would make good our defence. Because, while a hundred of us remain alive, we will not submit in the slightest measure, to the domination of the English. We do not fight for honour, riches, or glory, but solely for freedom which no true man gives up but with his life.

 My comment: There’s an old Science Fiction story from Analog, possibly Astounding, where royal and aristocratic titles were hereditary, but were reduced one grade with each generation, and were upgraded and awarded for major achievements. The UK soon outdistanced everyone in cultural, industrial, engineering, and scientific achievements.

I went through a Laphroig phase with my first wife in the late ’90s. But grew out of it. Too much of a good thing, but at least less nasty than the medicinal Bowmore.

I swear, Lagavulin is the way to go. Please trust me. You won’t regret it.

The 16 year-old might not be better enough than the 12 to justify the price, however.

For everyday, Macallan 12 is not bad. My cinematic GF between wife #1 and wife #2 bought it for me. And she knew.

John,
I opened a bottle of Macallan 18 the night of the Loma Prieta earthquake. A work colleague couldn’t drive home to Oakland from Palo Alto, so we spent the evening sipping single malt and trying to find out the extent of the damage on the news. An old highboy chest of drawers left 6” scratches on the floor from the P wave!
I sure wish that I had invested in a few more of those bottles back when it was still affordable! Now I’m happy with Laphroig, Balvenie, or Glenmorangie! I need to go back to the little bar I used to frequent in Commifornia that usually had about 50+ single malts available. Side by side tastings with a pint of Bass or Watney’s as chasers is an admirably spent evening!

James I was one of the few good Stuarts, despite being a witch-hunting homosexual, not that there’s anything wrong with the latter. At least he was against tobacco.

My heart goes out to his tragic great-granddaughters, the giantess Mary II and her sister Anne, also good Stuart monarchs. Even Mary’s cousin-king, the homosexual William III/II, was good for England, though he disparaged the British army of his post-Cromwell, pre-Marlborough day.

But James I’s son Charles I, grandsons Charles II and James II were vile villains of the lowest order. Although the pro-French, anti-British, Merry Monarch Charles II still has his fans.

Oreskes saying cancel WG1 since the science is certain, to the horror of all the ‘climate scientists’ whose livelihood depends on it.

There’s a theory about the Mayan cities that says it wasn’t climate, or at least not climate alone. Archaeologists found traces of red paint on/in many of the buildings.

Here are some suggestions for COP27:

1) some host city in the former Amazon rainforest with day trips to the sugarcane factories
2) western China with day trip tours of the workers paradise compounds behind the razor wire
3) Kabul–to get tips on religious control techniques for deniers and zero carbon living

4) The Maldives where thne private seaplanes will have great difficulty landing on trhe brand new airport that should now be under water but isn’t.
5) Stockholm so Greta can walk there instead of incurring the ludicrous carbon footprint of flying yacht crew hither and thither.
6) Beijing so that Xi can go without worrying about losing his job when he is away.
In the meantime In the meantime in the interests of humanity may I wish a plaguer and a pox on COP 26.

Apparently the shamen of note know to find puddles of it in the woods – setting fire to those woods whilst boiling the urine is a small price to pay for spiritual enlightenment!

Reading the news coverage, I do not understand how they think COP26 could even address these calls for action. This is a UNFCCC business meeting with a very specific agenda. National Plans are not on it. Neither are global resolutions to stop using coal or hit net zero by 2050, neither of which could possibly pass in any case. As last chances go this is no chance, but the press is full of calls for action or ambition. This is not what COPs do. They will be lucky to finally pass the Paris Agreement carbon trading (indulgences) rules, which failed to pass at COPs 24 & 25.

Looks like COP 26 is predoomed to fail. Works for me!

The Romans thought they were going to go on forever…Then wham, the middle of the fifth century, they hit a complete crisis, uncontrolled immigration, you have the Dark Ages. The lesson is things can go backwards… for a long time. Unless we fix climate change, unless we halt that massive growth in temperatures, that’s the risk we run …

(Boris Johnson).
It is a facile perennial comparison dragged up from time to time since Gibbon, the ‘uncontrolled immigration’ he’s referring to is probably the influx of Teutonic ‘barbarians’ from Northern Europe pressing on the borders of the Western Empire that was coincident with a steep fall in the NH temperature.
By a ‘massive growth in temperatures’ he probably has this image fixed in his mind.

Boris Bluster had the wrong end of the stick. The influx of Germanic tribes, in particular the Visigoths, was driven by a cooling climate. The steppes of central Asia had become too cold to sustain the herds of the nomads living there who, therefore moved westwards driving the peoples living there ahead of them. They went west because to the north was Siberia, to the south the Himalayas and Karakoram and to the east a wall built by the Chinese who had seen it before. It was the cooling climate that did for the western empire, not a warming climate.

Weren’t the Romans also drastically debasing their currency, and hiring foreign mercenaries to fill the legions? The bureaucracy was also getting so bloated that the average citizen felt quite powerless and tyrannized! This sounds familiar somehow!

The real irony is that the UK and the US are under very real threat from uncontrolled immigration, coupled with government benefits for the same, that has been a direct result of policy decisions and funding these same politicians calling for action against the climate.

Failing to reach agreement on limiting man-made CO2 emissions as a means to limit increasing global temperature to a maximum increase of 1.5 °C above “pre-industrial global temperature” by year 2050* is not a substantial issue because no scientific study has shown, beyond reasonable doubt, that man-made CO2 emissions cause an increase in global temperatures.

Quite simply: correlation is not necessarily evidence of causation.

*Interestingly, the date required for limiting the increase to 1.5 °C varies considerably depending on source: from 2030 to 2100, thereby showing how ill-formulated the “consensus” goal actually is.

Clearly the planet does not want to be “healed” from CO2 and does not consider CO2 as a pollutant. Perhaps CO2 is a life giving gas that will help the planet heal faster. Perhaps the planet considers the restoration of CO2 from deep in the ground back to the atmosphere as good and strengthening,
