Our View about the World's Richest 1% Derailing Paris Agreement Climate Goals

The Inherited Propaganda

The approach used is to show how the Rich People doesn't care about people's problems. The reason behind it, is to isolate the "social justice feelings" of the reader, frequently encapsulated into (self identified as)  common population, and use that to tighten their relationship with the problem. In other words "to increase people's ownership of this approach to Climate Change",  in benefit of their New Economy agenda.

As we mentioned before, the Climate Change has been proven to be a Solar System wide phenomena that can't be directly modified or altered by humans, for example by reducing the Carbon Emissions to zero.

Said that, Carbon Emissions are still a big problem for Human Health in big cities, and the process of extracting Carbon or Petrol a clear menace to the Environment. As well as the extraction of Lithium, Cobalt or Nickel which are the main components for the cell batteries (some Rare Earths are used on batteries as well, which are hard to find on the planet, therefore are the root cause of raising Geopolitical bullying attitudes in some Governments). Remember that Electric vehicles are their main proposed way out solution for Carbon Reduction Policies. There are other dubious solutions proposed to mitigate Climate Change like Carbon Markets and Carbon Taxation, which offer weak if any promise to solve what they call Climate crisis.

The richest one percent of humanity is on track to release 70 metric tons of CO2 per person per year in the near future, or an amount of carbon dioxide “30 times greater” than what is compatible with maintaining global warming below an international consensus threshold of 1.5 Celsius, the Guardian reported Friday citing a new study by Oxfam.

The world’s richest one percent constitutes a population smaller than that of Germany, which is home to more than 84 million people. This elite demographic “will account for 16 percent of total [CO2] emissions by 2030, up from 13 percent of emissions in 1990,” according to Oxfam’s study. “Meanwhile, the poorest 50 percent will be releasing an average of one tonne of CO2 annually.” Oxfam referenced an international climate change treaty known as The Paris Agreement.

The legally binding document was adopted by 196 states at the 2015 United Nations (U.N.) Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris and went into effect in November 2016. “Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels,” according to the U.N. Oxfam’s new research demonstrates that “the fight to keep 1.5C within reach is not being hampered by the consumption of most people on the planet, but by the excessive emissions of the world’s richest citizens,” according to Tim Gore, who authored Oxfam’s November 5 study titled “Carbon inequality in 2030: Per capita consumption emissions and the 1.5C goal.” “Even the total emissions produced by the richest 10 percent could be sufficient to exceed the amount allocated for keeping within the 1.5C targets by 2030 – regardless of what the other 90 percent of the population does,” Gore noted.

The U.N. is currently holding its 2021 Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland, with the event slated to last through November 12. Dozens of world leaders and heads of state have gathered at the event since October 31, ostensibly to discuss ways in which their home countries may work to curb CO2 emissions. A number of the summit’s delegates arrived in Glasgow via private planes, including U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Britain’s Prince Charles, and U.S. billionaire and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. “Private jets owned by the world’s elite have descended on Glasgow, Scotland, for the United Nation’s COP26 climate conference, filling up local airfields and angering environmentalists,” Business Insider reported on November 2.

The event has drawn roughly 400 private planes to Glasgow over the past week, according to Scotland’s Sunday Mail.
