  • How Serious People Planned to Avert Climate Catastrophe at the UN (While Trump Hung Out in the Basement)

    Evelyn Leopold

    Oceans are rising, glaciers are melting, hurricanes are ruinous and deserts are expanding as climate change wreaks havoc around the world. The United Nations devoted a weekend to climate vacillations that excluded global warming deniers like President Donald Trump.

    “We fool ourselves if we think we can fool nature. Because nature always strikes back. And around the world, nature is striking back with fury,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at Monday’s session at the closing of the Climate Action Summit.

    The World Meteorological Organization published new data that showed 2014-19 to be the warmest five-year period on record. So far, 186 states and the European Union, representing more than 95 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions (mainly carbon dioxide), acceded to the 2015 Paris Agreement, including China and India. Russia has just joined.

    The long-term goal in Paris was to keep the increase in global average temperature below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to limit the increase to 1.5 °C, in order to reduce the devastation of climate change. And of course, the United States under Trump has denounced the agreement, signed by President Barack Obama.

    Greta Starts the Day

    A daylong climate event in the ornate General Assembly hall began with a panel of young people who have spent a week conducting strikes and marches from Australia to Mississippi, adding momentum to the proceedings.

    Pointing her finger at the delegates, Greta Thunberg, the Swedish climate activist, said: “This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope.

    “How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.”

    Trump did drop into the climate session for about 15 minutes, prompting Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York and a philanthropist, to say, amid laughter and applause, “Hopefully our discussions here will be useful for you when you formulate climate policy.”

    Trump told reporters later he was all for “clean air and clean water,” an indication he did not have a clue about climate change. The United States is the world’s second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases.

    The Trump administration has leapt back into the 19th century, canceling as many fuel emission policies as it could, including suing California for its auto regulations. The New York Times listed more than 80 environmental rules and regulations on their way out.

    Trump spent most of the day at an event on religious discrimination, held in a basement room and not attended by many world leaders but appreciated by American evangelists.

    What Did They Do?

    The UN session featured nearly every important diplomat in the world, including the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, China, and India (not to mention city mayors), as well as important figures in banks and industry, including Bill Gates.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for example, has pledged a “$60 billion package of climate policies aimed at getting Germany back on track to meet its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson doubled foreign climate aid to $14.4 billion over the next five years.

    Touching were developing nations and small island states that used their limited resources to plant trees to bolster coastlines and avoid coal as fuel.

    A total of “77 countries—many in the industrialized world—committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. They were joined by 10 regions and more than 100 cities—including several of the world’s largest,” said UN Secretary-General Guterres in his closing remarks.

    And “70 countries announced they will boost their [national contributions] by 2020,” he added.

    He continued that more than “100 leaders in the private sector committed to accelerating their move into the green economy. A group of the world’s largest asset-owners—responsible for directing more than $2 trillion—committed to move to carbon-neutral investment portfolios by 2050.”

    For a full accounting and individual pledges, see this climate summary.

    But Guterres said much more was needed particularly on “ending coal and other fossil fuel subsidies.” He said a number of coal power plants “projected to be built are a looming threat to us all and can undermine our global efforts for carbon neutrality.”

    Then There Is the Amazon

    One also cannot forget another climate change denier: Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, who has opened the way for razing large tracts of the Amazon rainforest, polluting many countries for many miles.

    Earlier this month, he also managed to lodge a vicious attack against Michelle Bachelet, the UN high commissioner for human rights. Bolsonaro reacted to concerns raised by Bachelet about a jump in killings by the Rio de Janeiro police, backtracking on democratic norms and attacks on indigenous communities.

    Bolsonaro responded by praising the late Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s courage “to deter the left” and “communists like her father.” Her father, a general under ousted leader Salvador Allende, died in jail. Bachelet was also jailed with her mother. She lived to serve two terms as Chile’s president.

    Asked about Bolsonaro’s comments, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said, “The Secretary-General has immense admiration for Madame Bachelet for her work as Human Rights High Commissioner, for the courage she has shown throughout her life in fighting for human rights, both professionally and personally, and what she has endured, and the Secretary-General stands in total solidarity with her.”

    Monday was a preview to the march of diplomats at the high-level UN General Assembly session with 14 days of speeches and 600 meetings. Obviously, the weakening global economy and the dispute over Iran are expected to be mentioned often. But climate change will be a constant.

    Health and Women

    The United Nations also held a forum on universal health coverage. While Britain and others stressed the value of reproductive health for women, especially contraceptives, the United States spoke only of abortion, again an appeal to evangelicals.

    U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said health care should not include such terms as “reproductive health and rights.” He said 19 countries agreed with him while the Netherlands said 58 agreed with its position of giving women choices.

  • Consider this before you vote:

    Your minister of finance engaged in insider trading. Also forgot about his villa in France.

    You blew the Asia Pacific deal.

    You blew the helicopter deal with the Philippines.

    You blew the deal with China.

    You blew the deal with Europe.

    You invited "irregular" immigration and the taxpayer foots the enormous bill for it.

    You alienated the United States – our largest trading partner.

    At the G7 you pledged $400 million to Education around the world along with another $180 million to the Global Partnership for Education in Europe. None of it is going to fix our messed up school systems here at home. Meanwhile education costs are skyrocketing for our youth making university a mountain too high for many to climb.

    You pledged $241 million to Family Planning around the world including a $20 million donation to the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation (because they have integrity!). This all happened while you told vets that they were asking too much.

    You pledged $2.65 billion to climate change at the Commonwealth Leaders Summit and now you’re trying to bully the provinces into new taxes to pay for this pledge.

    You pledged $300 million to the Rohingya Refugee crisis while we have a refugee crisis of our own flooding into Quebec that you won't address.

    You pledged $125 million to Caribbean Reconstruction while our own infrastructure in cities is falling apart.

    You pledged $650 million to Sexual and Reproductive health in Haiti and around the globe wanting safer abortions for woman while many women in our own country are left without a family doctor.

    You pledged $840 million to Syria for Humanitarian Assistance when half the native reserves in our country don't have clean drinking water.

    You gave $10.5 million to a convicted...CONVICTED terrorist in a backroom deal. You intentionally paid it out in a way that prevented the widow of the killed soldier from pursuing it.

    You spent $4.5 billion on a 65 year old pipeline, and now the courts have ruled it shut down. Now it's back on (at a delay cost of $250 million) - good investment for Canada you said? (And KM uses that money to build a pipeline in Texas)

    You pressured Jody Wilson Raybould repeatedly & INAPPROPRIATELY with several different high ranking officials to offer SNC Lavalin a DPA instead of prosecution for repeated & sustained corruption AFTER the former AG had determined they were ineligible for such a deal. You lied about the above having ever taken place. Then you obstructed the investigation into this obstruction of justice.

    You replaced Canada’s old F-18s with Australia’s old F-18s.

    Your bizarre love of all things Castro.

    You imposed tough regulations and taxes on oil from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland but not oil from Saudi Arabia. Every new project has to undergo strict environmental assessments...except cement plants in Quebec.

    You said that a proposed pipeline must consider “the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors” (what does that even mean???)

    You chase foreign companies (and their investment capital) out of the country like they have the plague.

    You chased our WW1 soldiers out of our national anthem... lest we forget.

    You called small business owners “tax cheats”.

    People voice concern over money spent on illegal immigration and you call them intolerant racists.

    We have an equalization program, but you give half of it to one province.

    You spent $8 million on a skating rink (vanity project) when Canada's largest skating rink is 500 meters away.

    You added tens of billions to the national debt while lying to Canada's face about it. Balance the budget in 2019? Now we’re looking at 2040.

    You groped a woman and when caught and said she experienced it differently.

    You elbowed a female MP while dragging another MP by the arm in a petulant fit.

    Peoplekind? (international embarrassment)

    You got India to invest $250 million in Canada but we have to invest $750 million in India first.

    You said returning terrorists will be an extraordinarily powerful voice for Canada.

    You fought to let terrorists keep their Canadian citizenship.

    You spent $212,234 on artwork for the cover of the 2017 budget report.

    You spent upwards to $348,000 on food and alcohol in five flights on our government’s plane. On your G20 trip to Argentina, you spent $103,000 on food and alcohol alone. How is that even possible?

    You gave Canadian taxpayers' money to Hamas.

    You voice outrage over fake racist attacks and say nothing about real terrorist attacks.

    You took 10 vacations in a single year. Who does this?

    You spent a little over $1.5 million on the trip to India that did nothing but worsen ties. Plus paid over $17,000 to bring an Indian chef to India to cook Indian cuisine. And to top it off, invited a convicted attempted murderer to diner and posed for pics with him.

    And you’re the only PM convicted of ethics violations. (multiple times in fact)

    You destroyed the career of one of Canada’s honest military leaders to cover up possible massive corruption in ship building contracts.

    You invited Joshua Boyle, an alleged perpetrator of sexual assault and unlawful confinement of his wife for a photoshoot in the Office of The Prime Minister.

    You threaten to sue the leader of the opposition then chicken out when you realized that your alleged crimes will be exposed in court.

    You offer over $600 million dollars in subsidies to failing mainstream media outlets if they can prove to be trustworthy. You put a union who vows to destroy your opposition in charge of selecting these new “trusted” sources to receive funding. You could school the Russians in election interference.

    You pay off your friends to engage in election ads for you and get Elections Canada to pay for it.

    $13 million to Loblaws for new refrigerators.
    You made public statements of deep admiration for Chinese communism.

    You wore preposterous, inappropriate costumes during a state visit to India, paid for by Canadians.

    Almost $13 billion in promises right before calling the election.

    Blackface. 3 times. Wow.

    What moral, functioning Canadian human could possible justify voting for you?
    Consider this before you vote: Your minister of finance engaged in insider trading. Also forgot about his villa in France. You blew the Asia Pacific deal. You blew the helicopter deal with the Philippines. You blew the deal with China. You blew the deal with Europe. You invited "irregular" immigration and the taxpayer foots the enormous bill for it. You alienated the United States – our largest trading partner. At the G7 you pledged $400 million to Education around the world along with another $180 million to the Global Partnership for Education in Europe. None of it is going to fix our messed up school systems here at home. Meanwhile education costs are skyrocketing for our youth making university a mountain too high for many to climb. You pledged $241 million to Family Planning around the world including a $20 million donation to the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation (because they have integrity!). This all happened while you told vets that they were asking too much. You pledged $2.65 billion to climate change at the Commonwealth Leaders Summit and now you’re trying to bully the provinces into new taxes to pay for this pledge. You pledged $300 million to the Rohingya Refugee crisis while we have a refugee crisis of our own flooding into Quebec that you won't address. You pledged $125 million to Caribbean Reconstruction while our own infrastructure in cities is falling apart. You pledged $650 million to Sexual and Reproductive health in Haiti and around the globe wanting safer abortions for woman while many women in our own country are left without a family doctor. You pledged $840 million to Syria for Humanitarian Assistance when half the native reserves in our country don't have clean drinking water. You gave $10.5 million to a convicted...CONVICTED terrorist in a backroom deal. You intentionally paid it out in a way that prevented the widow of the killed soldier from pursuing it. You spent $4.5 billion on a 65 year old pipeline, and now the courts have ruled it shut down. Now it's back on (at a delay cost of $250 million) - good investment for Canada you said? (And KM uses that money to build a pipeline in Texas) You pressured Jody Wilson Raybould repeatedly & INAPPROPRIATELY with several different high ranking officials to offer SNC Lavalin a DPA instead of prosecution for repeated & sustained corruption AFTER the former AG had determined they were ineligible for such a deal. You lied about the above having ever taken place. Then you obstructed the investigation into this obstruction of justice. You replaced Canada’s old F-18s with Australia’s old F-18s. Your bizarre love of all things Castro. You imposed tough regulations and taxes on oil from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland but not oil from Saudi Arabia. Every new project has to undergo strict environmental assessments...except cement plants in Quebec. You said that a proposed pipeline must consider “the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors” (what does that even mean???) You chase foreign companies (and their investment capital) out of the country like they have the plague. You chased our WW1 soldiers out of our national anthem... lest we forget. You called small business owners “tax cheats”. People voice concern over money spent on illegal immigration and you call them intolerant racists. We have an equalization program, but you give half of it to one province. You spent $8 million on a skating rink (vanity project) when Canada's largest skating rink is 500 meters away. You added tens of billions to the national debt while lying to Canada's face about it. Balance the budget in 2019? Now we’re looking at 2040. You groped a woman and when caught and said she experienced it differently. You elbowed a female MP while dragging another MP by the arm in a petulant fit. Peoplekind? (international embarrassment) You got India to invest $250 million in Canada but we have to invest $750 million in India first. You said returning terrorists will be an extraordinarily powerful voice for Canada. You fought to let terrorists keep their Canadian citizenship. You spent $212,234 on artwork for the cover of the 2017 budget report. You spent upwards to $348,000 on food and alcohol in five flights on our government’s plane. On your G20 trip to Argentina, you spent $103,000 on food and alcohol alone. How is that even possible? You gave Canadian taxpayers' money to Hamas.

  • On Climate Strike Eve, 450+ Activists and Groups Urge United Nations to Back Global Fracking Ban

    On the eve of a global climate strike and just days before a major United Nations climate summit, more than 450 environmental activists and organizations sent an open letter Thursday to U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres urging him to support a global ban on fracking for fossil fuels, highlighting growing concerns about public health and the climate emergency.

    "As you are aware, man made climate change is the biggest and most comprehensive existential threat humanity has ever faced—apart from a nuclear war," the letter reads. "However, at a time when global forces must be combined to combat the foreseeable and enfolding mass extinction of our planet, the oil and gas industry—backed by many irresponsible governments—bets on a fossil fuels extraction technique that will destroy the joint forces of humanity: hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking."

    Organized by the U.S. advocacy group Food & Water Action, its European arm Food & Water Europe, and Pennsylvania-based air quality group the Breathe Project, the letter lays out the oil and gas industry's contributions to methane emissions, how hydraulic fracturing supports the plastics industry, and the environmental, health, and human rights implications of fracking.

    Food & Water Action @fwaction
    We wrote a letter to the @UN to ask them to finally call to #banfracking everywhere.

    Over 400 people and orgs have signed it, including @MarkRuffalo and Emma Thompson!

    Letter signatory Robert Howarth, a Cornell University professor of ecology and environmental biology whose research on methane leaks has exposed climate impacts of fracking, explained Thursday that "over the past decade, methane levels have been rising rapidly in the atmosphere, contributing significantly to the unprecedented global climate disruption seen in recent years."

    "Over 60 percent of the increased global methane emissions are from the oil and gas industry, and shale gas development in North America is responsible for one-third of the increased emissions from all sources," Howarth said in a statement. "Fracking for shale gas is a climate disaster."

    As actress and U.N. Human Rights Champion Amber Heard put it: "Every well and every pipeline adds more methane and carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and pushes us closer to the edge of the climate cliff. The science demands, and our children demand, a global ban on fracking."

    Biologist Sandra Steingraber, a longtime critic of fracking, pointed out that "a decade ago, when there were only nine scientific studies on the impacts of fracking, some political leaders suggested that fracking might serve as a bridge to a stable climate. Now there are 1,800 studies, and the science is clear."

    "Fracking is making the climate crisis worse," said Steingraber. "Fracking is destroying drinking water and undermining human rights around the world. Fracking is harming health through toxic air pollution and supporting a polluting plastics industry that is killing our oceans. Our planet is on fire, but fracking is not an evacuation bridge nor a fire extinguisher. Fracking is an arsonist that needs to be stopped everywhere and right now."

    On the Eve of Global Climate Strikes and Summit, Celebrities, Advocates and Grassroots Groups Call on UN to Endorse Worldwide Fracking Ban https://www.foodandwatereurope.org/pressreleases/on-the-eve-of-global-climate-strikes-and-summit-celebrities-advocates-and-grassroots-groups-call-on-un-to-endorse-worldwide-fracking-ban/
    9:40 AM - Sep 19, 2019

    Concerned Health Professionals of New York—which Steingraber co-founded—and Physicians for Social Responsibility in June published a comprehensive analysis of nearly 1,500 scientific, government, and media reports detailing the various health and climate consequences of fracking. The analysis noted with alarm that U.S. oil and gas production, backed by President Donald Trump's administration, "has spurred a massive build-out of fracking infrastructure."

    Without increased public opposition and government regulation, that build-out is only expected to continue throughout the United States. A first-of-its-kind report released in June by Food & Water Watch showcased more than 700 recently built or proposed facilities across three industries that benefit from and help fuel the U.S. fracking boom: the petrochemical and plastics industries, gas exporters building liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals, and natural gas-fired power plants.

    Wenonah Hauter—founder and executive director of Food & Water Watch, Food & Water Action, and Food & Water Europe—noted in a statement Thursday that U.S. opponents of fracking have had some success in reining in related industries.

    "In more than a decade of fighting fracking in the U.S., we've banned it in multiple states and made great progress elevating the issue globally. But there is much more work to do," she said.

    "The fracking surge in the U.S. has been a boon for the polluting petrochemical industry, which turns fracked gas into plastics. Our planet and our oceans are drowning in plastic and fracking companies are profiting," Hauter added. "This needs to stop once and for all. We need a global ban on fracking."

    The letter to Gutteres makes the case that "directly affected regions and communities all over the world rely on a strong and bold public position of the United Nations on this significant and existential issue." Signatories call on the U.N. chief "to accept this climate champion role" and vocally support a worldwide fracking ban.

    Groups backing the letter include the Break Free From Plastic Movement, Friends of the Earth, Oil Change International, Greenpeace Australia Pacific, Alianza Mexicana contra el Fracking, Support Centre for Land Change South Africa, and SumOfUs. Individuals include activists Karenna Gore, Naomi Klein, and Bill McKibben; human rights attorney Jennifer Robinson; children's singer Raffi; fashion icons Vivienne Westwood and Joe Corré; and actors Emma Thompson and Mark Ruffalo.

    "The climate emergency is a casting call for heroes, and we need everyone to show up," said Ruffalo. "Step one is to stand up and say, loudly and clearly, that there is no place for fracking on a climate-destabilized planet."

  • Because of the Holocaust white people do not want to procreate anymore. What I mean by procreation is the spread, expansion and growth of the species, this was the entire point of empires and colonisation, to spread. This is why we colonised Australia, South Africa and the New World, to spread. It is only natural for a species to want to spread, it is in our genes, for example tigers want lots of tigers not lions or ligers. In fact everything spreads, viruses spread, plants spread and animals spread, everything spreads except white people. Not only do white people not want to spread anymore, like South Africa, they are actively going about undoing or reversing their former spread. They are doing this by the reverse spread or reverse colonisation of non-native people (mostly from their former colonies) into their own native territory.
