I imagine the Lefties heads on X are exploding over this.

What is is saying is correct, as usual, the loonies only want to report the section that inflames the issue.

The statement that a phase-down or phase out of fossil fuels was inevitable and essential, and the task was "to be real, serious and pragmatic about it". Is spot on.
I said years ago on the generation thread, as technology changes and sustainable and renewable technologies are discovered and developed, it is a moral obligation to deploy them, but it has to be done in a sensible manner.
In 100 years time I have no doubt PV panels as we have them now will be completely obsolete, and the technology will move on to more efficient methods of capturing and storing energy, but as the sultan says if you get ahead of the curve, you will end up back in the caves.

Here you go, the left wing media are tripping over themselves.

The presidency of COP28 has defended its leader for saying there is “no science” that phasing out fossil fuels is needed to cap global warming, insisting a video of the remarks was released to undermine the Emirati leadership of the climate summit.
On the fifth day of the talks in Dubai, COP28 Director-General Majid Al Suwaidi hosed down the earlier remarks by President Dr Sultan Al Jaber, reported by The Guardian, as a distraction from the work of the conference.

Any out there feeling a little 'touched-up' by that great climate commentator Alan Jones? ... many have been.
Lucky for those groping about for an upright 'front?' door man, a true pick & sticker to stiffen their arguments on why there'll be none of us gagging on CO2 .
The decades long breakfast staple of aged-care homes across the incontinent
Alan a nation girls, oops girds,(silly of me), its loins, solutes and readies for the struggle(street) ahead. Or complete capitulation.
Alan; look back though these pg's and find more than a few fellow travellers, supports, like jock straps to bollocks.
That witch McClymont, doesn't she know it's Xmas?

I'm sure she does. best for the season Kate, thankyou.

Start stocking up on your salted beef. The UN is coming for our cows, piglets and jumbucks.

Can someone tell them that global boiling and lethal humidity is not actually stopping our crop yields...

Beef is out. Fish is in. Sugar is taxed. Low income families will get subsidies to encourage healthier nutritious eating. Consumers can buy genetically modified rice. Forget grass-fed beef, it will be algal, fungal or even insect-fed. No barbecues allowed but you can prepare pulses in a high pressure cooker.

This is the world according to the United Nations food road map, released on Sunday to help keep the world’s temperature rises below the 1.5 target and ensure the world’s population, predicted to hit 10 billion in 2050, doesn’t go hungry.

The UN believes a significant reform of the global food system is required, with a rebalancing of waste and excess to countries that are starving, as a third of global food production will be at risk of global heating within a generation.

In this first road map, issued on Sunday under a hefty UN report with the enticing heading, “Achieving SDG2 without breaking the 1.5C threshold” (which means let’s get to zero hunger amid a population boom, but not impact the planet).

I can feel the whole continent of Australia sinking into the ocean in sheer embarrassment

I feel there's going to be as reckoning. An inflection point where we see the absurdity of all this where we steer away from the group think. I'm not sure what the trigger will be, or when it will happen, but I'm sure we'll get a grip at some point. But, I also think you and I will be basking in Nirvana by that stage.

I think people are starting to see how stupidly pathetic it all was.
Idiotic pandering is on the nose.

COP28 Agrees to Make Climate Change Optional, in Last Minute Compromise


cop28.jpg



In an eleventh-hour concession that will allow for a joint agreement to proceed, climate change will only apply to those who want it, with nations able to opt out of global warming if it does not fit with their plans for the future.

A draft statement released at the COP28 Dubai summit this morning included the addition of an asterisk after the term ‘climate change’, with a footnote explaining that it was now optional.

“This is a sensible, measured approach that will allow for progress on climate change to occur. Nations will be able to accept a level of climate change that is appropriate to them, rather than having to receive the full amount,” summit president Sultan al-Jaber said.
Many countries welcomed the compromise, such as the Saudi Arabia delegation, which said it would opt out of climate change for now.

Sadly much of the politics has for decades taken this idea seriously.

Elect x to government otherwise Australia, or even a specific state, will suffer the consequences of devastating heatwaves and so on.

So the idea that we can opt out, whilst comedy as such, has unfortunately been taken as serious by many. :2twocents

I suggest this observation is directed at actors who just want a transparent figleaf of cover for continuing with planet killing fossil fuel generation.

There will be no single action by any organisation that will resolve CC. But pretending that the issue is "someones else" problem and that "we" aren't responsible/don't matter/ aren't significant is just a pretext for doing SFA.

I actually don't believe this. I think we are probably warming and the poles will shrink, but how the hell do the poles actually keep ice coverage due to global boiling and lethal humidity? Is Antarctica different to the Arctic?

One key difference is that Antarctica is a land mass with ice on it whereas the Arctic is simply ice on the sea.

Take the ice away and Antarctica still exists, you could stand on it and build things on it even, whereas the Arctic is nothing other than sea. :2twocents
