The UK government claims that its new energy strategy will provide cleaner and more affordable energy this decade. It won’t.
The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has just released a report that should have alarm bells ringing in everyone’s heads. Instead what we have is a war drive from the USA to shore up its weakening global dominance, that involves a massive divergence of the investment needed into military expenditure.
Statement published by No Cold War following the COP26 conference.
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 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.
