NYC Goes Green For Climate Week Or Something

By “green”, they don’t mean anything so pedestrian as giving up their own use of fossil fuels or anything

NYC GOES GREEN AS GLOBAL POLITICAL LEADERS OPEN 10th CLIMATE WEEK NYC 2018

At the Opening Ceremony of Climate Week NYC today, global political leaders will assemble to drive forward momentum on climate action. Climate Week NYC, run by The Climate Group in coordination with the United Nations and the City of New York, and taking place annually during the UN General Assembly, is now in its 10th year.

During the event, California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., will invite governments to amplify the urgent need for climate action, following the ‘Step Up’ climate action message from the Global Climate Action Summit earlier this month.

Global leaders including the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand; President Hilda C. Heine of the Marshall Islands; President Martín Vizcarra of Peru; and President Jovenel Moïse of the Republic of Haiti, will all headline the event.

I’m seeing lots and lots of long fossil fueled flights, and you can bet these folks aren’t flying anything but a fancy private jet. Then all the limos. Fancy foods brought in from all over the U.S. and the world. Premium residences/hotel rooms for the duration.

California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr, said: “Ten days ago we closed the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco with strong new commitments and this week we carry that momentum across the country to Climate Week NYC. The path away from fossil fuels is daunting but California and like-minded partners will press on.”

Huh.

Stephen Badger, Chairman, Mars said: “In order to tackle climate change, we need a fundamental transformation in the way business works, from rethinking supply chains to going ‘all in’ on renewables. It’s time for business to step up with what is necessary to do our part to prevent climate disaster.”

Double huh. Kinda sounds like all the “end capitalism” talk. Anyhow, what do they mean for “green”

The Empire State Building, 1 World Trade Center, and New York City Hall, among others, are lit up green for Climate Week NYC

Hooray, we’re saved!

    It is to laugh:

    The Marshall Islands? Peru? And Haiti? The leaders of those countries aren’t ‘global leaders,’ but men representing minor countries. Haiti is emblematic of what President Trump legitimately described as ‘third world shit holes.’

    If they were really concerned, they could have all met by videoconference.

    Yes, and pre-Paris all probably set to receive billions in US cash to fight “bad weather”.
