Online influencers, fossil fuel companies and some of the countries attending COP28 have nourished a feedback loop of falsehoods.
Al Jaber's comments from reminded me to finally sign the academics open letter in support of a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty () - there is no path to limiting warming without an equitable & just fossil fuel phase out.
- All COPs are bullshit, just as much as 1-27.
An international environmental group gave Japan its "fossil" award again for the country's reliance on coal-fired power despite pledges to decarbonize.

How Mounting Rubber Demand Is Driving Loss of Tropical Forests
>The growing market for rubber is a major, but largely overlooked, cause of tropical deforestation, new analysis shows. Most of the rubber goes to produce tires, more than 2 billion a year, and experts warn the transition to electric vehicles could accelerate rubber use.
>The elephants are gone. The trees are logged out. The Beng Per Wildlife Sanctuary in central Cambodia is largely destroyed, after being handed over by the government to a politically well-connected local plantation company to grow rubber.
>Meanwhile, on the heavily deforested Indonesian island of Sumatra, tire multinational Michelin and a local forestry company raised $95 million worth of green investment bonds on the promise that they would reforest bare land with rubber trees. But the NGO Mighty Earth has found that much of the plantation went ahead on land from which natural forest had been removed as recently as a few months before by a subsidiary of the local company.
Ecars are no solution, ride a bike, take public transport etc. All too hard that's what "climate deniers" say about emissions mitigation.
From the creators of "cigarettes are not causing lung cancer" and "microplastics are good for you":
Top petrol producers argue that phasing out fossils fuel won't slowdown climate change...
Individual choices are not enough.
Not when global greenhouse gas emissions are primarily about generating electricity and heat (around 38%), non-aviation transport (21%), and agriculture (23%).
At worst, the focus on individuals may even be purposeful distraction.
We need an immediate paradigm shift.
A quantum flip.
A mass awakening.
A Herculean response.
A planetary revolution.
But is not going to happen is it
It is not going to happen.

Not so long ago fossil fuel lobbyists were saying 'climate change is a hoax'. Then, they were denying the man-made cause of it. And now, who would have thought, they are confronted over a 'phase-out' or 'phase-down' issue.

There is only one measure of success for Cop28: will it include a commitment to phase out fossil fuels or not, Gore said. If it does include such a commitment it will be a smashing success if it does not it will be a failure.
It was clear from day one that the conflict of interest would be enormous.
But no, world leaders have happily endorsed this fossil freak show for months. Taking pictures with him, while he played with words and proudly wearing the wristband.
And always remember, hes just the most visible part of a massive infestation of fossil fuel interests in COP and climate negotiations.
The National/ACT/NZFirst Government's u-turn on oil and gas exploration has been called out. This makes me so angry. Luxon is not my Prime Minister. Don't be fooled by the image. The renewal of off-shore oil prospecting that earned us the first FOSSIL award at COP28 is a policy of the National/ACT/NZFirst coalition government. The absolute clowns.
What Everyone Should Know About Permafrost Thaw - International Cryosphere Climate Initiative
Western Australia is run by fossil fuel companies in all but name.
The WA Government has bought into the gas cartels cons, introducing legislation that would open up the state to the large-scale underground dumping of waste carbon, also known as carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Around the world, CCS projects are being built to allow for continued oil and gas production, yet after decades and billions of dollars poured into research, CCS projects end up resulting in significant delays, massive cost blowouts and oftentimes fail to capture their intended targets.
This legislation will make it easier for oil and gas companies like Buru Energy and fracking company Black Mountain to greenwash the massive polluting projects they want to build in the Kimberley.
We need to act now to stop this carbon capture scam!
Key decision-makers need to hear that you wont stand for our government giving frackers a licence to pollute by supporting technology that doesnt work.
