China and India Demand a TRILLION Dollars to Reduce CO2 Emissions

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

After meeting Joe Biden and John Kerry in person, China, India and delegates of other developing nations have added another zero to their carbon ransom, and are now demanding a trillion dollars to tackle the climate crisis.

$1 trillion demand for rich nations to combat climate change as Joe Biden rips into China, Russia

China is among a group of nations demanding rich countries donate as much as $1 trillion to help tackle climate change.

Benedict Brook @BenedictBrook

China has joined India and a number of other nations in backing calls for rich nations to donate as much as $US1 trillion ($A1.35 trillion) to developed nations to bring emissions down. 

But Beijing got a thumping from US President Joe Biden after China’s leader Xi Jinping was a no show at the COP26 climate talks currently underway in the UK. 

“It’s a gigantic issue and they’ve walked away,” the President said on Tuesday.

“China is trying to assert a new role in the world as a world leader. (But) not showing up, come on.

“The rest of the world is going to look to China and say what value added are they providing? And they’ve lost in building influence with people around the world and all the people here at COP,” he added.

No doubt a trillion dollars would put everything back on track. Or maybe 10 trillion, if the price goes up again.

And only if the CCP/Red China pays the world reparations of $5-10 trillions for the deaths, morbidity and economic adverse effects of SARS Cov2 that the Wuhan Institute of Virology most likely developed in conjunction with the reckless virology idiot Peter Daszak designing a a gain of function variation of a corona virus by inserting a Furin cleavage site via bioengineering on a heterogenous mixed species viral backbone of unknown precedent that increases transmission in human respiratory epithelium in cell culture, then allowing it to escape the laboratory, and after knowing a city wide epidemic had begun the ChiComms allowed it to spread around the world via unrestricted air travel to Europe and Asia and North America from Wuhan during the early months of the pandemic in 2019-2020. Cover up and refusal to cooperate on the investigation of the origin and the involvement in SARS-CoV 2 Development by the WIV personnel was just the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae or should I say the shi- sandwich. An interesting exercise is to calculate the probability of the insertion of 12 nucleotide bases of a particular sequence to code for a furin cleavage site into the exact location within a viral RNA polynucleotide sequence due to chance alone. It’s an astonishing small probability.

‘Hard to know where pandemic relief money went,’ admits federal spending watchdog

“It’s even harder for us to tell you what it was used for,” reports the statutory oversight authority for $5 trillion in federal COVID relief spending. “Government award data is full of dead ends.” 

“We looked at 51,000 awards worth $347 billion that supported the pandemic response (as of June 15, 2021),” the watchdog reports in the summary entitled “Dead Ends in Pandemic Relief Award Data.”

“We found more than 15,400 awards worth $33 billion with meaningless descriptions that make it difficult to know how the money was used,” the PRAC reveals.

The watchdog found 12,600 awards totaling $11.6 billion which used descriptions that just repeated the program name. The Department of Housing and Urban Development was responsible for 9,900 of those vaguely defined awards, totaling approximately $8.8 billion.

As Edenhofer said ” AGW is not about environment but about redestribution of money”
Considering how many more billionaires we got since the start of Covid and how much richer the superrich have become (though they hide massive amounts of wealth in foundations etc)
we get an idea in which direction the money is being redestributed.
This already happened when the FED created the great depression and the FED owners bought stocks for pennies on a dollar.
(A similar thing happened in London after bankers claimed Napoleon won at Waterloo)

Before the banking crisis of 2008 the big banks controlled less than 30% of the market ,after the crisis they controlled 50%.
(how can the biggest loser become the biggest winner?Impossible if the crisis did not happen by design )

And we go full circle if we reas Chosudowskies book ” The globalization of poverty” – a book about deliberate sabotage of countries by the IMF to transfer the wealth towards always the same.

Biden executive order on new or renewed federal contracts requires that all fed contractors mandate vaccines to all employees working on the contracts and any employees with whom those workers may come in contact. That means every research university in the U.S. will soon have partial to full vaccine mandates or risk losing federal contracts, even if their own governors have rejected state mandates. For my university system, that amounts to potential loss of $2 billion in contracts for non-compliance. Hopefully, state AGs will challenge the executive order in court. I can already hear the Brandon chants ramping up.

The unvaccinated have less and less reason to get jabbed because so many new cases have already had two shots. If after two years they haven’t already been exposed to and rejected an infection, it’s unlikely they’re in much danger of getting it now. I have no idea what game all these ‘authorities’ are playing but it certainly isn’t about covid.

It is another liberal sue and settle scam. The DOJ is defending a suit by the ACLU, they will admit the “injury”, agree to the $450.000.per person, $900,000.00 if there are 2 “parents”, and then the judge, a far left liberal, will agree to the terms. Of course the constitutional problem is that the HOUSE is required to initiate any spending, not the executive of judicial branches. So now we know why the “reconciliation” bill is so important, the money will be in there with weasel words allowing the executive branch to direct funds to such uses.

Of course the whole point of the payout is to transfer funds (30% or more?) to the trial lawyers so they can contribute to the Democrats for the next election cycle.

Let me point out again that the Biden administration is only focusing on people separated at the border during the Trump administration.

The Obama-Biden administration had the very same policy, yet no mention of how “terrible” that was for those separated. No doubt, they suffered the same amount of “trauma” under Obama-Biden as they did under Trump.

And separating children from adults who are bringing them across the border is the right thing to do. We don’t know who those adults are accompanying the children. They might be the parents or guardian, but then again, they might be child sex trafficers.

So both the Obama-Biden administration and the Trump administration were correct to separate these people at the border, but the Biden administration is trying to portray Trump’s actions as a crime against humanity, yet no mention that Joe and Barack did the very same thing.

One set of rules for Democrats and a different set of rules for Republicans.

It doesn’t matter if they pay or not. In such matters the US simply declares the debt for AGW compensation paid to the Chinese by deducting it from the balance owed by the Chinese for covid fatalities … and then announcing a balance owing.

I can see a NEW GAME, of family approaching the border, and then separating to collect its “starter” money, plus various gift from program largesse.

Chinese do not need money collected from the UK’s taxpayers, who barely manage to pay their electricity and gas bill.
They spend fortune on space research some good science and some that one day may be a serious threat to those taxpayers they now want money from.
This might be interesting and a good science coming from China:
Chinese scientists recently (13 October 2021) published report on a magnetar (star) followed by radio-telescope FAST.
“Here we report the detection of 1,652 independent bursts with a peak burst rate of 122 h−1, in 59.5 hours spanning 47 days. 
The large number of bursts in hour-long spans allows sensitive periodicity searches between 1 ms and 1,000 s.”
Article in Nature magazine is very technical in detail, but what basically says is that the object emits pulses in the radio part of the electromagnetic spectrum that last only few thousandths of a second, but produce energy equal to that produced by the sun in a year.

We will wisely invest in more nuclear and hydro power as we have already plenty of wind and solar. Gas looks also good to compensate for the very variable output from the unreliables.

While South Asia can be grouped with Africa emission wise, China emits like Europe so different category altogether.

One of the reasons I don’t get too excited by the US “public debt” is that there is no feasible way to repay it, barring a significant reduction in the scope of the State. This would allow a much freer private sector to vastly increase real wealth relative to the size of the debt. But since this course is probably not in the cards, the only alternative is public debt repudiation, which per Murray Rothbard, would be the uniquely moral course:

“Both parties [the politicians doing the borrowing and the members of the public loaning funds to the government] are immorally contracting to participate in the violation of the property rights of citizens in the future. Both parties, therefore, are making agreements about other people’s property, and both deserve the back of our hand. The public credit transaction is not a genuine contract that need be considered sacrosanct, any more than robbers parceling out their shares of loot in advance should be treated as some sort of sanctified contract.”

As far as foreign debt across private and government sectors that seems about right (roughly). The corresponding US foreign debt to China is around the $1.5 trillion mark.

As well any agmt is not worth a penny if there are no consequences for failing to meet the obligations.

btw an agmt based on faulty science

And it does make me wonder about the law school education Obama, Biden & Kerry received or was it their politics ignored common sense.

They’re simultaneously:

  1. taking the piss
  2. stroking the ego

(1) is easy enough but its The Amount that’s interesting and shows just how good a measure they have Westerners
Not tooo big to be greedy, giving the impression of ‘reasonableness’ but big enough to make those being asked ‘feel rich’
How manyfolks are thinking “Well, maaaaaaaaybe, at a push, we could stretch to that

Exactly the tactic children use on their parents in toy shops – urging for the upgrade to a bigger and only ‘slightly’ more expensive toy
And parents know what happens at next birthday had they given in…..
Free Money only creates demand for Ever More Free Money

The Chinese will know acutely. Their One Child Policy produced an entire generation of, mostly male, Spoiled Brats.
Hence why said policy was so rapidly and unceremoniously dumped – in case of what was foretold in Lord of the Flies and what actually unfolded on Easter Island

Face it, People of the US, its what you spend on healthcare every 3 months.
Or what Boris has blown in order to trash the UK economy and all who sail in it, mentally as well as physically while wrecking relations with most rest of Europe, especially with the French.
Total self destructive Clown: where’s he gonna get his vino from, none left in the in the UK as Chuckles has burnt it all in his Porsche
Et aussi, bonjour Madame et Quelle Horreure, Les Frogz-legz ain’t got any spare since Jack Frost snaffled it all earlier this year

oh dear – laff a minute innit

We need a goal…..450ppm CO2 by 2050…we can do this….the benefits of further greening of the planet are immense….and cost nothing…just stop this windmill/solar waste.

You’re a piker. Dream big. My goal is 480 ppm CO2 by 2050.

Sadly, it won’t help with Global Warming, which I’ve been cheering on for years. A warmer world is a better world and *sigh* CO2 is not the climate control knob.

We need a change of plans before the next glaciation rolls around.



P.S. Just give China and India the $Trillion dollars they are asking for so they can use it to buy Hunter Biden paintings. The money won’t do a darned thing for the global average temperature, but it will keep at least one artist from starving. Oh… and 10% for the Big Guy.

Meanwhile, get a load of UK energy numbers right now – eyeballing the Met Office ‘radar’ map says UK temps right now are about 7 Celsius – not esp cold but its quite damp out out there making it much colder

Run that by me again, you know, how water is a Green House Gas….

They are laughing at us.
All they need to do to dominate us is demand a number that will bankrupt us.
They don’t care whether we take it or leave it but if we take it then they gain the world.
This has become a defence issue.
Russian and Chinese scientist’s climate models do not regard CO2 as the climate control knob and they are right.
The corruption of our scientific establishment has become an existential threat to western civilisation.

If they are after a number that will bankrupt us then they need to demand a lot more. One trillion dollars is just 3 Elon Musks or about 6 Jeff Bezos. Alternatively it is the same amount that the US government borrows every year to pay for its defence budget. So spread out over 20 years and between the G20 one trillion dollars is a trivial sum. Plus most of that will end up going to western companies to buy infrastructure and would in fact count as government subsidies. Germany for example gets rich selling machines to manufacture solar panels to China.

Stephen,
The current rate for a 10 year EU central bank bond is -0.14% so the EU could issue several hundred billions of euro bonds and make money. Even in the US interest on government bonds is below inflation so there is borrowing money if you are a government has never been cheaper.

Borrowing money from who? And where did the lenders get the money to loan?

Get real. They borrow fiat money from the unborn based on the fallacy that the unborn will earn it in the future somehow. Its a great idea, no one owes anything to anyone, just make promises and call them assets. Be sure to die before the foreclosure happens though.

The Chinese are furiously developing their own IP in everything from batteries to nuclear reactors and proudly declaring it every chance they get.

They won’t be rich for long when the Chinese start copying and improving the machines, and the Germans keep buying trillions in solar cells, turbines and batteries.

No way could China get to Net Zero with only a $1 Trillion investment…let alone all the developing countries.

The lies and inaccuracies in this whole scheme are at least 1 or 2 orders of magnitude off.

The misnamed “US Infrastructure Bill” only asks for $500 Billion. What a joke when the cheapest route to Net Zero would be to build 3500 Nuclear Plants (@ 2.2 Gw) which comes with a sticker price of AT LEAST $50 Trillion.

What a bunch of liars. They aren’t even hinting at the truth. Costs will be 50 to a hundred of times higher than a piddling $1 Trillion to De-carbonize the third world…especially if China and India are included…which is another crock.

If citizens ever saw the REAL PRICE TAG required to get to Net Zero, they might want a little more proof.

The American people must take great comfort with such a courageous leader in the White House, and someone of the caliber of Kerry to back him up.

And then there is Prime Minister Boris, the white haired statuesque figure taking the lead and charting the unchartable, in classic Winston Churchill phrases. We shall beat climate change in the oceans and atmosphere and send that fossil energy supply to hell.

It gives one a righteous glow of pride and optimism, made more complete with fresh RNA flowing through the veins, ready for the battle.

So, let me get this straight. Are they saying they want $1 trillion free and clear on top of the several trillion they earn annually in trade, or are they going to stop taking that several trillion they earn annually in trade until we give them $1 trillion? Just asking for a friend.

I don’t think Joe Biden is going to rip into anything soon.

China and Russia didn’t even bother turning up for this party. The only shame is that they passed up an opportunity to view Loch Lomond and The Trossachs.

Why on earth does anyone think China is a developing country? Its already well developed. Its per capita emissions are about the same as the EU.

Its been an amazing story, its development, quite extraordinary that a government should take such precipitous growth as its objective, and that a population should be capable of delivering. And its not over yet.

But the idea that having achieved in 50 years what took the West several hundred, it can still be considered a developing country? In many ways its a larger economy than the US. You doubt this? Look up the steel production and electricity generation numbers.

Its a completely mad idea that its a developing country any more in need of aid than the US or the UK.

Their 100 billion was partly in loans. We’ve seen that before. Loan poor countries the money to buy stuff they don’t really want (inefficient/inappropriate technology). Then they have to pay back many times the original loan but their economies haven’t improved. The poor countries leaders skim off billions. The people selling the technology make billions. The people who have to pay the loans back stay poor.

Funny Money.

A trillion is about the amount of money it would take to complete the R&D, commercialization, manufacture of real high tech energy solutions and revision of energy distribution infrastructure that would reduce the consumption of fossil fuel a factor of 8-11 by virtue of increased efficiency and alternative electrical generation options. This would be awesome if: 1) it empowered families, farms, local economies at reduced energy prices factor 5-6 lower than current prices, 2) enabled the USA to create new giant global markets for excellent high tech energy efficiency solutions to sell to the world. 3) and make obsolete old expensive energy production and distribution tech and infrastructure paradigms that would improve the air and water quality of local communities.

We live in an age where the only solutions empower digital/information/communication tech companies. by creating solutions for problems and needs created by the existence of previous generations frivolous solutions for needs and problems that those solutions created. Did we really need all the digital toys we have now? What is the down side? Blogging downside or upside? Science or politics?. Logic or influence and so on?

The only other solution that is currently being sought : 1) raise taxes and 2) print more money and try to win the geopolitical currency/commodities (fossil fuel) game.

( Siding with Iran obvious is hurting us a the fuel pump…because the fossil fuel market is fundamentally political because it is controlled by an actual global cartel and defacto collusion….. and so has all our other commodities (oats, pork bellies etc) empowered by defecto collusion via algorithmic data mining)

No solution for fossil fuel exists. All we have are banners of a new age (electric cars)… with no signs of the new age on the horizon other than Elon stock marketeering at a time when the geopolitical push is working hard to prevent said new age. There is no logic in the propaganda. it is all existential and mythic. Reality has been set aside which is easy to do when it is miss-represented and encapsulated in a hand held gadget.

No solution for fossil fuel (hydrocarbon fuel) is currently in existence. And none are on the horizon other than to reverse the 15 year old trend to exit nuke power. So in the end, all the carbon dollars yap is nothing but smoke and mirrors BS… with no actual real solutions for American local communities.

The game is a bad one. We need to stop playing it.

Okay, I’ve got it now: promise publicly to reduce and/or stop your CO2 emissions and you can extort half a billion bucks from any guilt-ridden government.

Got it.

I will henceforth (or maybe hencefoward?) wear rebreathing equipment when I am not in the comfort of my personal space (my cave), when I am out and about running errands and getting things I need, and I will confine my own personal emissions to the confines of my personal dwelling place, starting when a half billion bucks are deposited to my account.

And by bucks, I do not mean the antlered sort of buck. I mean cash money, moola, greenbacks, etc., and I’ll meet the Brinks truck at the door to my bank.

Fair enough?

Now, how long I will endeavor to persevere at this task remains to be seen, but I will absolutely not provide a refund of any kind just because I go outside my dwelling space occasionally.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
