BOJO'S CABINET RESHUFFLE SEPT. 2021
COP OUT CABINET - The Conservative government hosted FLOP26 in Scotland in November 2021. These were the cabinet MPs at the time of the unmitigated cop-out by China, India, USA and Russia, who must have taken one look at the shambles of a UK administration, plagued by sleaze and corruption at every 'U' turn - and wondered why anyone was taking the time to even consider making concessions, let alone commit to stop burning coal. The UK has become so reliant on other nations for just about everything, that we have lost the ability to make do and mend - as in World War Two. Boris says one thing in his rousing speeches, then fails to deliver. Because his cabinet don't have a clue how to implement a zero carbon infrastructure, let alone introduce policies for a sustainable economy. All they can do is throw out a few crumbs, penny-pinch on taxes and pray for a miracle - in the form of a genius technological solution. They will let the rich and Nazi corporations, get away with blue murder, so long as the party political contributions (and free holidays) keep rolling in. There are no miracle solutions chaps, it is like the Dam Buster's mission, a lot of hard work and a daring team, to drive the bargain home.
And as for being an MP and having two jobs. You've been getting away with that for far too long. Everyone knows that being a productive MP is a full time job. There are now quite a few cases of MPs not replying to correspondence, and one where a cheeky chappie pretended he'd visited his constituency. It seems they are just reaping their MP salary, while concentrating on gaining consultancy work, using the MP status to network and land a big fish.
THE DIRTIEST DOZEN G20 COUNTRIES BY COAL, GAS & OIL PRODUCTION/BURNING, AND FOREST CLEARANCE
G20 abusers will say they had no choice. They needed to keep burning coal, gas and oil for their economies - just like the camp guards at the many concentration camps, they were forced into business as usual. In the case of the camp guards, they argued they were just following orders. But that is not true. We all have choices. There are clean alternatives, such as solar and wind power. There is no need to keep building coal fired electricity generating stations, and no need to drive carcinogenic petrol or diesel vehicles that contribute to lung cancer. We have hydrogen fuel cells, electrolyzers and zero emission electric vehicles.
If you are going to increase electricity capacity, it makes sense to invest in renewable energy, unless it is that the fossil fuel giants are lubricating the works with party donations. If that is the case, we say that such contributions should be transparently declared, that the public is informed as to what is guiding policy decisions.
COP 1, BERLIN, GERMANY
2020 - Postponed - A year without any progress, that the planet can ill afford
2021 COP 26 Glasgow, Scotland 1st-12th November
COP 27 EGYPT 2022 - We doubt there will be any real progress at the next conference of the parties. The United Nations' have no teeth, but they can give you a nasty suck, if you bother turning up for a chat.
The only way to beat the coal furnaces in China, India, Russia and the USA, is to switch to electric transport and green hydrogen for fuel. Then, slap (carbon tax) import duty on all otherwise cheap goods made with electricity generated with coal. These are flooding our markets, and must be tax adjusted to reflect the damage fossil fuels are doing to the planet. We could start making goods again for ourselves, or at least muck in with Europe. Or, maybe even think of re-joining the Union, to add what muscle we can to take on the rest of the world and stop desertification.
We could "carbon tax" the mega-rich, since most of them are climate deniers - as that is how they made their money, or by exploiting the average man in the street. Then there is banking, issuing loans with paper money that is not linked to anything real, in terms of how much food and energy the planet can sustainably produce.
We must also embark on a massive reforestation programme, including extra planting for affordable homes and carbon lock, and try to do something about our plastic polluted oceans and carcinogenic fisheries.
We might begin to source food and raw materials from United Nations members who are in the clean up programme. Leave the climate criminals to hang themselves. Don't forget that carbon monoxide is a killer, and petrol and diesel engines kill between 7-8 million people a year from lung cancer and other respiratory diseases. That is three times the death rate of Covid19. And that is why we say anyone not doing their best to eliminate greenhouse gases, are climate criminals. They are literally murdering humans by the millions. More than the Nazis on a blow by blow basis.
If all else fails, we hear that humans taste like pork and veal, and there will be billions if viewed as livestock. The bad news for politicians is, a hungry mob tend to enjoy leaders who let them down. We'd rather you honed up your action plans, than the public (eventually) need to sharpen their knives.
