TOPIC: G20 - Climate Change

G20 - Climate Change 1 Week, 4 Days ago  
Trump calls climate change a 'hoax' notwithstanding his Hurricane Michael visits to see the catastrophic flood damage in Florida.

An important state - highly vulnerable to sea levels, which are steadily rising.

In October, a comprehensive UN report predicted widespread flooding, drought, starvation and extreme temperatures - as a result of climate change.

Urging immediate action to protect the earth's future.

Climate change issues don't attract votes in the US - or support from large corporate donors, involved in the manufacturing industry.


So DT will probably continue to expound his hoax theory...

It's pretty worrying that he's in charge just now. It seems from the articles about the UN report that there's no time to be lost. Hasn't he also put some climate change sceptic in charge of the environment department or whatever their environment body is called?

In 2016, nearly 200 countries signed the Paris Agreement which aims to limit the global temperature rises to 2°c - in each century.

These countries included China and the USA; these two account for about 40% of the toxic emissions, emanating from the earth.

For his own reasons, Trump announced in 2017 - that the US would pull out of the deal as soon as possible.

So - in 2020 - the US will be the first nation to discard the Agreement, as well as the only G20 member.

big rallies in Oz yesterday with 1000s of schoolkids taking the day off to protest.

Many interviews revealed the kids as smart, worried about the future and able to speak coherently about why the want Climate Change taken seriously.

depressingly, mindless politicians rabbited on about them "ending up on the dole queue" (because they didn't go to school for one day?) and "why don;t they learn their arithmetic" and other such moronic insults.

Me- every time I see smart kids saying sensible adult things I feel happy there may be new generations who can things seriously.

my favorite pic of the day...

The US remains the only G20 country to exit the Paris agreement (in 2020), as confirmed over the weekend

Mr Trump has described climate change as a hoax - and doesn't see it as part of his America First initiative

Giving US corporations, oil mainly, free reign to continue and intensify their pollution of the atmosphere

With China (who have signed the agreement), the US accounts for 40% of toxic matter generated

Trump is right in the sense that there are a lot of contradictory "studies" about climate change, and of course, the purpose of the big businesses that have grown around is to make money for the big businesses, but that doesn't mean the whole thing is a lie, and to dismiss it outright seems a bit extreme.
He appears to have very black and white thinking.

We call it "simplistic" Honey - the scourge of modern thinking (and voting - it's why he was elected).

Re:G20 - Climate Change 1 Week, 2 Days ago  
Only this October, the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) reported to the UN that the world had only 12 years to limit its temperature rise to 1.5°c.


The warning signs can't be missed:-


Rising sea levels

Extreme temperatures

Ice cap melting

Polluted seas and rivers

Decline in wild life etc.


Calling this a hoax is laughable, but continuing to increase pollution and gas emissions regardless - is criminal...

Ironically, it's only two years since Barack Obama was vehemently supported the Paris Agreement - saying that it would be the 'turning point' in the fight against global warming.

Republicans are obviously more business orientated - and less affected by the recent natural disasters, and those such as the Exxon Valdez.

Democrats - like Obama and Clintons - take a broader view, on the big picture. Perhaps to some political cost - but not forgetting that the world's current inhabitants are only its temporary custodians.
