UNITED NATIONS CLIMATE REPORT 2022

In its annual state of the climate report, the United Nations’ weather agency said that sea level rise in the past decade was double what it was in the 1990s and since January 2020 has jumped at a higher rate than that. Since the decade began, seas are rising at 5 millimeters a year (.2 inches) compared to 2.1 millimeters (.08 inches) in the 1990s.

The data on sea level and average temperatures are nothing compared to how climate change has hit people in extreme weather. The report highlights the summer’s incredible flood in Pakistan that killed more than 1,700 people and displaced 7.9 million, a crippling four-year drought in East Africa that has more than 18 million hungry, the Yangtze River drying to its lowest level in August, and record heat-waves broiling people in Europe and China.

“This latest report from the World Meteorological Organization reads like a lab report for a critically ill patient, but in this case the patient is Earth,” said climate scientist Jennifer Francis of the Woodwell Climate Research Center in Cape Cod, who wasn’t part of the report.

Levels of heat-trapping carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide all reached record high levels, with potent methane increasing at a record pace, the report said.

That means more than just warming temperatures on land. Ice, both Greenland’s ice sheet and the world’s glaciers, are shrinking precipitously, the report said. For the 26th year in a row, Greenland lost ice when all types of ice are factored in. The volume of glacier snow in Switzerland dropped by more than one-third from 2001 to 2022, the report said.

But 90% of the heat trapped on Earth goes into the ocean and the upper 2000 meters (6561 feet) of the ocean is getting warmer faster. The rate of warming the last 15 years is 67% faster than since 1971, the report said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DOUBLE STANDARDS - Greenpeace has threatened to take the Conservative government to court if it approves drilling at a new oil field in Scotland. Where most would imagine that leading by example would be the order of the day in all matters leading up to Cop26, ministers are considering green-lighting the gas and oil project at Cambo, a North Atlantic site west of Shetland. No matter how you cut it, if this application gets the go ahead, how will the UK be able to hold its head up high when seeking to persuade India and China to stop burning coal. It's like the ongoing grants of permission for houses that add to climate chaos, where councils are investing ratepayer's dollars in oil, instead of renewables. CIL payments are not going to the Community as Infrastructure Levies, they are (it is alleged) being used to make up the shortfall in pension plans for council employees. We agree with Greenpeace, this should be the subject of a Judicial Review or Public Inquiry.

 

GROUNDS - In a climate emergency, any government serious about meeting the Paris 1.5 degree target, without a definite plan as to how to achieve that goal, should not be pursuing fossil fuel agendas, that can only add to the problem, contrary to the principles of sustainability and circularity. This is especially so where the UK is one country with wind energy from coastal advantage, that is under exploited. For example, development of hydrogen fuels from renewable energy and distribution infrastructure, is more appropriate. The only argument in favour of drilling for offshore oil, is where there is no alternative. It may be that the country is in debt, but that is because it has been pursuing policies that are unsustainable - such as exploiting reserves, just for the sake of taxation.

 

 


Over 190 world leaders are expected to attend the conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, where they will be joined by government representatives, businesses, non-profit organisations and citizens for 12 days of climate talks, from 6 to 18 November 2022, that we know flopped in miserably 2021 without commitment from China, Russia, USA, India and Australia. Never have we hoped so much to be proven wrong, but it is 7 years since the 2015 Paris Agreement, and nobody is doing, all of the key players are carrying on as usual. In fact they are all backpedaling. It is time for a serious trade war, blocking cheap imports from China, a nation selling the West goods made from coal-fired generating stations. Are we mad! Why are we buying goods that are heating the planet? These are not cheap goods. They extremely expensive, because they are killing life on earth.

 

 

 

 

 

FOSSIL FOOLS - Geriatric politicians with 'climate-senile' policies will find in difficult to break away from their corrupt ways, as part time politicians with two jobs. Their main job being to find paid consultancy work, rather than craft policies and create statute that works to protect our voters from lung cancer, energy shortages and a lack of affordable (sustainable) housing.

 

The 'zerophobics' are the undertakers of the political world, sending millions of ordinary people to an early grave, while loading us with NHS, hospital and staff costs that would not be needed if we had clean air in our cities.

 

Basically, the longer you are in politics, the more likely you are to be exposed to bribes, from climate deniers, mostly fossil fuel and energy companies, looking to keep on pumping toxic fumes into the atmosphere, so they can keep making money. The political undertakers are working with them to keep hospitals stocked with cancer victims. They are blood sucking vampires, draining what little you had saved for your retirement.
