What were some of the worst comments to come out of COP 26?
from the COP26 coalition said to CNBC;
“But it will go down as the worst planned, worst organized and least effective COP that I have ever known. It is just unbelievable.”
a climate activist from the USA, hit with a scathing attack
“exclusionary dystopian hellscape.”
Friends of the Earth International climate justice and energy co-coordinator said,
“the most exclusionary COP ever.”
A comment clearly fired across the bows of the UK. Furthermore, she added,
“It is hard to see how COP26′s outcomes could be considered fair and legitimate with those on the frontline of climate impacts, unable to make their voices heard in the streets of Glasgow and in the halls of the COP,”
Scotland on Sunday
Neil Henderson (Twitter @ hendopolis) Spurted out,
“Make no mistake, we are still on the road to hell.”
Magali Cho Lin Wing
17, UNICEF UK Youth Advisory Board, commented
“And I thought, ‘Hold on, is this a climate conference or some corporate event? Is this what you came for? To swap business cards?'”
“a two-week long celebration of business as usual and blah blah blah.”
Miss Thunberg went deeper,
“The ecological crisis does not exist in a vacuum,” ”It is connected to other crises and injustices that date back to colonialism and beyond, crises based on the idea that some people are worth more than others and therefore have the right to steal others, to exploit others, and steal their land and resources. It is very naive of us to think we could address this crisis without addressing the root cause of it.”
Let’s face it, what is really at stake here?
Reducing global emissions and protect biodiversity should and must be the key areas, before it’s too late.
Surely COP 26 is our best course of action, the pressure is on, who will lead, and who will fall?
