By focusing only on coal and not including oil and gas, the COP26 text disproportionately impacts certain developing countries like China and India. All fossil fuels must be phased down, in an equitable manner.
The march is just another episode in a more comprehensive strategy. Behind the “non-violent march” mantra is the long shadow of the life-long reactionaries who dream of ending the Cuban Revolution no later than 15 November. Washington is lubricating the route plan of the protest with threats and dollars.
The country-by-country league table from the latest Carbon Change Performance Index, which covers 64 countries responsible for 92% of global greenhouse gas emissions, shows that the US is at 55 – 9th worst.
The US’s cold war propaganda offensive into the Cop26 has centred on attempting to position itself as the world’s “climate leader” and to shift the blame for the climate crisis onto developing countries, particularly China and India.
US aggression against China is not only a threat to world peace and prosperity, it is also a major obstacle in the way of humanity coming together to tackle climate change.
