We Should Make Global Elites Reduce Their Climate Crisis (scam) Footprints

I’m actually OK with this, since so many of these global elites are constantly yammering about Other People being forced to reduce their carbon footprints

Climate change: Global ‘elite’ will need to slash high-carbon lifestyles

The world’s wealthiest 1% account for more than twice the combined carbon emissions of the poorest 50%, according to the UN.

Their emissions gap report finds that the richest will need to rapidly cut their CO2 footprints to avoid dangerous warming this century.

The study finds that the global Covid-19 shutdown will have little long term impact on the climate. (snip)

While the report looks at the plans that governments have submitted to curb their CO2, it also examines the roles of lifestyles and consumption patterns of individuals.

The global top 10% of income earners use around 45% of all the energy consumed for land transport and around 75% of all the energy for aviation, compared with just 10% and 5% respectively for the poorest 50% of households, the report says. (snip)

And for the top 10% of earners, this would mean cuts to around one tenth of their current level.

But for the richest 1%, it would mean a dramatic reduction.

“The wealthy bear the greatest responsibility in this area,” Unep executive director Inger Anderson wrote in a foreword to the report.

So, when are the elites at the United Nations going to cut their own carbon footprints? Anyhow, how will these top 10% and top 1% be forced to reduce their footprints? The report is rather short on that. How about adding the political elites, and those who think they’re elites in the Credentialed Media?

I bet if we force compliance these elites who portray themselves as Warmists will change the hell out of their tunes. That same report, though, also says

(Breitbart) To that end the report outlines changes in “consumption behaviour by the private sector and individuals,” through various means.

These include individuals forgoing long-haul international return flights that could reduce personal footprints “by almost two tonnes of CO2” and an end to coal-fired power generation.

Switching to renewable electricity by households could curb carbon by around 1.5 tonnes per capita, according to the report, while embracing a vegetarian diet would save around half a tonne of carbon on average.

The latest recommendations as dictated by the U.N. include replacing domestic short haul flights with rail travel; promoting cycling and car-sharing while making housing more energy efficient.

You didn’t actually think the elites would be forced to make changes, right? They will come after you and me.

    No need to make them do anything at all. Just don’t have systems of government where they have enough power to make YOU do it.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Interesting points. We plebes can be manipulated by economics but how do you force the elites to limit their greenhouse gas emissions?

    On the other hand the transition to renewables will make the elites domestic homes and transportation “cleaner”, but it’s going to be a long time before we have international electric flights.

    That’s why the [shudder!] incoming President appointed the very wealthy John Kerry — he made his money the old fashioned way: he married it! — as his cabinet level “special presidential envoy for climate.” The distinguished Mr Kerry owns a fleet of cars and a private jet, and thinks nothing of jetting half-way across the globe to lecture other people about reducing their carbon footprints (feetprint?).

    Mr Kerry, who thought nothing of betraying his country when it came to harming our war effort in Vietnam, will think nothing of betraying the plebeians when it comes to imposing greater burdens on them, as long as it doesn’t bother the patricians in any meaningful way.

    In 1966, Maria Teresa Thierstein Simões-Ferreira, a Portuguese citizen, married John Heinz, heir to the Heinz family fortune. Later a Republican senator from the Keystone State, he died in a plane crash in 1991. In 1995, she married Senator John F Kerry (D-MA), with the unfortunate effect of transferring a Republican’s capitalist-earned family fortune to a proto-socialist Democratic grifter.

      At least Mr. Kerry went to the trouble to get married. Mr. Trump got his money the old, old fashioned way – he inherited it from his proto-fascist daddy.

      Mr. Kerry served in Vietnam as I recall. Mr. Trump had bone spurs on his foot and had to stay home, quipping that avoiding STD’s was his “personal Vietnam”. The families of the 58,000 plus Americans killed there probably don’t view that as clever.

      Kerry did not betray his country in his Senate testimony in 1971.

      He asked, “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?”

        Ah Rimjob bleating about serving or not serving during the Vietnam War.
        So far Rimjob still hasn’t owned up to why he lied about joining the Army during that war.
        Guess the “Stolen Valor” thing worked for a while until he was called out.

        Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

        As a soldier who actually fought in Vietnam I say Kerry not only betrayed his country in his Senate testimony in 1971 but he also betrayed the men who fought with him. You weren’t there Elwood so you don’t know jack shit. Like you he lied about his service and he also lied about the Silver Star, Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts he received in exactly ONLY A FOUR MONTHS TOUR in Vietnam. I was there three tours for three years, in 13 battles and dozens of incursions and skirmishes was shot once, hit by mortar shrapnel once and received one Bronze Star with V. You’re telling me he isn’t a liar and a fraud? Bull shit. Then he told everyone he “gave back six, seven, eight, nine medals” but he couldn’t remember. LIAR!

        John Kerry is a piece of shit, a liar, a communist sympathizer and a perfect fit for the new Democommie Party. Figures you’d worship him, he’s just like you.

        “He asked, “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?”” One could ask that of any war but to you it’s some kind of insight. I think the man is a coward, a fraud, a liar, a traitor and a communist supporter just as much as Fonda and Swalwell and you.

          Did you serve with Mr Kerry?

          Anyway, all your lies about Kerry were debunked. And I don’t care about your opinions and your tall tales of your “time” in Vietnam. We’re sorry you felt compelled to go because it seems to have left you bitter. Do you blame your COPD on your service?

            Yes, I did serve with Kerry. Where were you? Why are you lying again about something as stupid as Kerry? Do you feel the need to lie about everything your commie friends do? He’s a fukin liar and so are you. I went to serve my country in it’s time of need no one compelled me, I volunteered. I’m not bitter about anything but the communist takeover of my country.

            Why would you bring my COPD into a comment about Kerry? You are one sick bastard.

            No, the truth about Kerry was not debunked. He is and was a total pos.
