Bummer: U.N. Postpones Climate Crisis Working Vacation Meeting

If there’s one thing that Bat Soup Virus has shown us, it’s that people can actually use technology to have meetings. Nothing new there, though, right? We’ve been doing conference calls for decades and decades and decades, along with video conferencing in the same manner. But, you know, climate cultists want to be able to take long fossil fueled trips to vacation spots, especially when they are paid for by Other People

U.N. Postpones Global Climate Summit Over Pandemic Concerns

The United Nations postponed an important year-end climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, because of concerns about the novel coronavirus pandemic.

U.N. climate leaders bowed yesterday to mounting pressure to delay the summit that attracts thousands of delegates and observers. The gathering will be held in 2021, and a midyear meeting that would have been held in June is scheduled to occur in Bonn, Germany, at the end of this summer.

The news comes as the coronavirus has spread to 180 countries and claimed more than 45,000 lives. The conference center in Madrid where the U.N. summit was held last December and the Glasgow venue that was booked for this November’s meeting have both been converted to field hospitals. (snip)

The Glasgow conference was to be the most important climate meeting since the 2015 Paris summit. Countries were expected to update their Paris Agreement pledges ahead of the gathering, further reducing emissions through 2030. The first round of pledges, now 5 years old, put the world on track for potentially catastrophic warming of 3.2 degrees Celsius, according to the U.N. Environment Programme. The Paris Agreement’s goal is to keep warming “well-below 2 degrees.”

If the Paris climahysteric agreement was so historic, why is it necessary to change it? Of course, despite all the pledges, almost no nation is actually on track to meet their commitments.

Climate advocates accepted the summit’s delay. But they said as countries move past their response to the public health crisis and refocus on recovering economically, those policies should support the promises they made in Paris five years ago and not undermine them. Stimulus plans worldwide can spur green energy innovation, efficiency measures and climate resiliency. Or they can double down on fossil fuels, they said.

So, we can implement policies which will keep the economies of all the nations in the toilet, or we can ignore the climate cultists and get things going. These same climate cultists will be taking lots and lots of fossil fueled trips and engage in consumerism once we are done with Bat Soup Virus. Even more than normal after being locked down.

It remains unclear when the Glasgow conference will happen. The U.N. and the U.K. government must coordinate with African countries—who were to host COP27, the U.N. summit in 2021—to decide whether there should be two summits in one year, or whether the meeting in Africa should be postponed until 2022.

Why not have both, since the CoC has multiple big ones yearly. Heck, you could have the Glasgow one in March, then the Bonn in June, then the normal one in Africa. I bet the 10,000+ who attend would love this. Bunch of climahypocrites. Why not simply have small meetings and allow people to watch on video? It’s not like most of the 10,000+ are actually doing anything but sitting in seats and watching, you know. Oh, right, free vacations.

    Was there ever a better reason to have their climate meetings by videoconference?

    Teach why do you never actually give the correct figures for “long fossil fueled flights”?
    According to Wired Magazine 11.28.18 by 2021 all airlines flying international routes under a UN agreement must offset their carbon pollution
    On a coast to coast flight the cost of carbon offset runs about 4 bucks per seat
    Lyft also recently said it was going carbon neutral
    Are you now going to claim this will result in your “skyrocketing costs”?
    And electric planes are coming
    The Israeli company Eviation just was sold to a Singaporean company Chernobyl Aerospace
    Are you g

      John,

      Why is it that you cannot understand that paying for CO2 in the atmosphere is not the same thing as eliminating it.

      Why do people like you continually lie and put forth positions that defy logic and science?

      Do you hate both that much?

      We would all understand if your did. After all, all the left has is hate.

      And how many airlines is that?

      Bicycles or horses?

      Are you now going to claim this will result in your “skyrocketing costs”?

      Believe it when you see it.

      And electric planes are coming

      Can’t wait to see the cord.

      The Israeli company Eviation just was sold to a Singaporean company Chernobyl Aerospace

      I think you’ve just been pwned.

    “the summit that attracts thousands of delegates and observers”

    Who are these “observers” chewing up our environment without consequence? A participant is one thing but “an observer”.

    Hell it it’s that easy, sign me up for permanent “observer” status and quit bugging me about “climate change”.
