Dec. 21, 2021 (EIRNS)—This is an extended version of an article appearing in issue No. 51 of the EIR Strategic Alert Service weekly newsletter.
On Dec. 13, Russia vetoed a UNSC resolution on “climate security” which would have been the first step in establishing a global climate police. India also voted against while China abstained. In motivating the vote, Russian UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said that the resolution would have empowered the UNSC with assessments and decisions that belong to scientists and that blaming climate change for all problems would have whitewashed responsibility for underdevelopment, wars, and terrorism.Read more
Nov. 28 (EIRNS)—South Africa’s Minister for Resources and Energy Gwede Mantashe, speaking at an African Energy Week conference in Cape Town on Nov. 9, denounced the demand to phase out fossil fuels, and explicitly denounced the cutting off of credit for fossil fuel investment, calling for an Africa-wide financial institution to assure funding for energy development. Although Mantashe did not refute the fake science behind the Malthusians’ demand to curtail carbon emissions, he unmistakably denounced the anti-development intent of the COP26 demands.Read more
As we forecast, the COP26 failed to do what they intended, which was to get agreement from the nations of the developing sector to give up their sovereign right to development in order to comply with the Malthusian demands made by the would-be global dictators running the show. The 2-day Schiller Institute conference, on Nov. 13-14, demonstrated that representatives from leading nations can generate, through dialogue, solutions to the multitude of crises created by the failed axioms of the unilateral world order. The presentations can be found at the schillerinstitute.com.
Britain’s Daily Express tabloid reports that COP26’s President Alok Sharma is very anxious about getting all countries, especially developing countries belonging to the G20, to agree to the 1.5° Celsius target which is a goal of COP26, “We have to get that,” Sharma says. But the problem is that there are 24 developing nations, among them China, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Philippines and Malaysia, grouped in the Like-Minded Developing Countries (LMDC), that aren’t playing ball and don’t intend to be squeezed into an anti-development trap in the way that the depopulation fanatics are demanding. These nations for the most part don’t have well thought-out programmatic alternatives, but they have made clear what they don’t want.Read more
Blinken Demands UN Security Council Accept Climate Change as Global Security Threat
Sept. 24 (EIRNS)—Secretary of State Tony Blinken used his address yesterday at the UN Security Council’s special meeting on climate and security to try to ram down the throats of member nations the argument that the “climate crisis” is the pressing global security issue to be addressed by that body, as it is supposedly the cause of every major problem on the planet. Not all present agreed, as we report further.
Austrian Greens Charged with Dreaming of Going Back to the Stone Age
Aug. 3, 2021 (EIRNS)—The Greens of Austria are stirred up by recent remarks made by the country’s Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, telling them “it would be totally wrong to believe that we could save the climate in the future by asceticism… the only right approach is to rely on innovation and technology.”
Two of the 11 speakers on this panel are prominent European leaders of initiatives to discredit the core lies and models of the assertion that human activity is causing CO₂ emissions, which is causing destructive climate change. They are Franco Battaglia, Professor of Physical Chemistry, University of Modena, who in 2019, was co-sponsor of a petition declaration, signed by many hundreds of scientists, that “There Is No Climate Emergency.” Likewise, Professor Guus Berkhout, Emeritus Professor of Geophysics, who is President of CLINTEL (Climate Intelligence, a foundation). Berkhout is also a member of the Dutch Academy of Engineering, and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences. His title was, “Stop Blaming Climate Change for Your Failures.”Read more
At the Schiller Institute June 26-27 conference, “For the Common Good of All People, Not Rules Benefiting the Few!”, 37 speakers addressed the most important issues facing mankind today, and defined the level on which solutions can be worked out. This process is glaringly not the approach in the major world institutions at present, which are factionalized between the necessity and prospect of a new paradigm, as against those locked in the old paradigm, with great danger involved for everyone.Read more
Today in England the leaders of the Group of Seven, at the end of their three-day confab in Cornwall, issued their “Cardis Bay G7 Summit Communiqué—Our Shared Agenda for Global Action To Build Back Better.” The B3W, as they call it—Build Back Better for the World—perspective, laid out in 25 pages, is ultra-green, devoid of anything necessary to really combat pandemics and famine, or to build a modern economy. It features outright bankster swindles based on carbon markets. Moreover, the B3W is a blatant ploy against China and the Belt and Road Initiative, which is building real infrastructure across the globe. President Biden and Secretary Blinken brag about it. Who can accept any of this?Read more
