Bummer: Warmists Who Won’t Practice What They Preach Say Draft Agreement Not Strong Enough

Must be nice to take a long fossil fueled trip to tell Other People how to live their lives

Activists, experts say draft U.N. climate change agreement isn’t strong enough

The first draft of an agreement to combat climate change being negotiated at the U.N. Climate Change Conference was released early Wednesday morning, and while certain provisions represent landmark progress in the effort to avert catastrophic climate change, activists and experts say it still falls short of what is needed in several key areas.

“This is not a plan to solve the climate crisis,” said Jennifer Morgan, executive director of Greenpeace International, at a Wednesday morning press briefing at the climate summit, also known as COP26. “It won’t give the kids on the street the confidence they need,” she added, referring to the mostly young activists who have been marching during the conference in Glasgow to demand stronger climate action.

“The text is not as strong as the political direction given last week,” said Alden Meyer, who studies U.S. climate policy for European think tank E3G, at the Wednesday briefing.

“This draft COP decision text is too weak,” said Tracy Carty, head of Oxfam’s COP26 delegation, in a statement. “It fails to respond to the climate emergency being faced by millions of people now who are living with unprecedented extreme weather and being pushed further into poverty.”

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: why don’t they starting living the Net Zero life themselves? It’s easy, right? But, this is not about climate, not about science, it’s about authoritarian government, and the little idiots pushing this don’t seem to understand that these laws and rules will impact their own lives negatively.

Obama on climate change: We can’t afford anyone on the sidelines

Former President Barack Obama comments on international cooperation to end climate change at the COP26 international climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

Ocasio-Cortez in Glasgow: ‘America is back’ as a leader on climate change, and this time ‘it is different’

At the U.N. Climate Change Conference on Tuesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said that “America is back” as a leader on climate change and predicted that the Biden administration’s Build Back Better plan and its wide-ranging climate provisions would soon be passed into law.

“America is back at COP, on the international stage as a leader on climate action,” the Green New Deal co-author said at an event alongside other Democratic lawmakers. “One thing that I think is so exciting about this time is that when we say that the United States is back, it’s not just that we’re back in the way that the United States was pursuing climate policy before,” she added. “It is different.”

Is that the same GND she never pushed to be passed? Who paid for her flight to Glasgow? Was it commercial or private? Why would an elected Socialist want to implement so many governmental controls on citizens, yet, refuse to do much of anything in her own life?

    Even the esteemed Mr Dowd, who is so very strict on the law, would approve Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, if the 2022 elections return the Senate to Republican control, taking whatever emerges from COP26, declaring it to be a treaty, and putting it up for a ratification vote in the Senate. That is, after all, what the Constitution requires.

    It is also what should have happened in January of 2017. President Obama didn’t want the Paris agreements to be treated as a treaty, because he knew that it would never be ratified by the Senate. Rather than just ‘unsign’ it, President Trump should have sent it to the Senate, so that Joe Biden couldn’t reinstate it.

    Mr teach falls back on his overused Alinsky-esque Rule 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

    It’s all he has left having lost the scientific argument long ago.

      So, you are admitting that the enemy do not live up its own book of rules? https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif Of course, it pleases us that you have admitted that the warmunists are the enemy!

      You’ve been asked, several times previously, just what carbon reduction measures you have taken, personally. Unless I missed it, you refused to respond. You’ve been asked which plug-in electric vehicle you’ve bought? Unless I’ve missed it, you haven’t told us. You want us to be forced to take measures you haven’t taken yourself voluntarily!

      I’ve already told you what we have done: added insulation, gone to LED bulbs and installed a clothesline. When we moved from the Keystone State to Kentucky, we downsized our home. That may not sound like much to you, and our reasons for doing so have nothing to do with fretting about global warming climate change emergency, but they were still done.

      You once referred to the patriotic Mark and Patricia McCloskey as your “neighbors,” though that can be a term taken somewhat loosely. The McCloskeys live in quite the McMansion, so I have to ask: do you reside in a similarly sized abode? If so, are you planning on downsizing to reduce your carbon footprint?

      We will regard the Hirsute One and you as truly serious about requiring people to have to live more austere lives to fight global warming climate change emergency when you tell us what you have done, what you have given up, how you are leading by example!
