Say, You Know How You Really Prevent Catastrophic “Climate Change”?

This one is a doozy

How to prevent catastrophic climate change

Communities affected by climate change were given a voice last week, at the four-day gathering of civil-society and social movements known as the Social Pre-COP. The event, held on Margarita Island in Venezuela, concluded on 7 November and was an important precursor to December’s UN climate talks in Lima, Peru (COP 20).

A diverse group of people from all over of the world attended – indigenous peoples, women and gender groups, youth, farmers, NGOs, grassroots groups – though representation from Africa and Asia was missing due to unfortunate logistical challenges. The Pre-COP gave space to affected communities to speak about their struggles, connect in solidarity and send a strong message of climate justice to world leaders.

Wait, wait, these people took fossil fueled travel from all over the world? Isn’t that bad for “climate change”? In their view, not so much, because the solutions are completely different

Participants warned against ‘false solutions’ like geoengineering, REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation), carbon markets, ‘climate-smart agriculture’, industrial agribusiness, mega-dams, fracking, nuclear energy and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology. Furthermore, they argued that it is necessary to use the framework of a global emissions budget to keep any global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

They stressed that an important way to achieve these goals is through better participation of civil-society and social movements in decision-making processes. They rejected the criminalization of social protests, and the overbearing influence of private transnational corporations on both the political process and people’s lives. Instead, they demanded that we hear the voices of communities most affected by climate change.

So, this is all Progressive (nice fascist) psychobabble from hypocrites searching for “social justice”, hating on transnational corporations (who just happened to be the ones who the Warmists used for their fossil fueled travel) while doing the very tired “spreading awareness” schtick.

Now, the main concern for ministers and negotiators should be how to raise ambition for climate action before 2020: close the gap on finance, technology transfer, mitigation and adaptation, guarantee significant amounts of new, predictable funds to the Green Climate Fund, create a global emissions budget to keep global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees, and establish a scheme for globally funded feed-in tariffs to catalyse the global energy revolution, which would allow developed countries to pay off their climate debt and give access to energy to the two billion without.

So, redistribution of wealth and other progressive solutions.

    This really is mind numbing.

    Create a global emissions budget to keep global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees?

    Pay off our climate debt?

    This is almost clever though, since no matter what is done, nothing will control the climate, nothing. Which means the crisis lasts forever and they get to milk it accordingly.

    This isn’t a political movement, nor a religion. This is a cult.

    What catastrophic climate change? The one that isn’t happening now or the one that won’t happen in the future?

    Teach the net effect of their use of fossil fuels will reduce the impact of AGW is that difficult to comprehend ?
    A cult Henry. ? Are you saying you know mire about it than the US Navy ?
    People like you who think you know more than the US military about reality are idiots

    John can’t help but bring the Navy into the argument. Likes those sailor boys I guess.
    Meanwhile it is a known fact that they have been coerced into using green energy at a HUGE cost to the tax payer. It’s not because they are so all fired gung ho for the climate change movement, John, not even remotely.
