Climate Change Committee chief executive : "... in June,what we said to the government was that it didnt look like we were on track for the governments targets in 2030. Remember, these are legal goals.
So I worry about what the government announced yesterday, because it looks like those goals will be even harder to hit with this softer package now around climate policy."
The abrupt resignation of BP chief Bernard Looney marks the loss of an executive who pushed for a transition to clean energy more aggressively than any of his industry peers, with mixed results.

Climate protests at UN Climate Week want to be too big and radical to ignore - Vox
On Today this morning, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak talked to Nick Robinson about his new committment to stop some of his government's planned measures on limiting climate change.
The interview is on the Best of Today podcast, on BBC Sounds.
Two things about this interview
1) is excellent at explaining his point of his program.
2) I am shocked at the complete inability for to comprehend coherent words in the right order.
Bloomberg: The UK plans to expand its definition of what counts as climate aid to meet its 11.6bn pledge without boosting funding
While doing some literature searching on Middle Pleistocene glaciations, I happened upon this crazy climate change denier paper recently published in the MDPI journal, Atmospheres. It really goes through all the climate denier memes, e.g. CO is just a trace in the atmosphere! Climate changed in the past! Just another reason to not trust anything from MDPI! Read it for a laugh.

ARTC lowers track in work blitz
Heat waves are increasingly frequent and deadly. Yet popular media, including the ABC in its "be prepared for an emergency" section (!), keep presenting them beside bikinis and the beach. When will the media take the threat of heat waves seriously
Net Zero always has had contradictions. But Rishi Sunaks lies, deception & bluster , also about & Meat tax, really make a mockery of the concept. He's clearly desperate to gain votes from the right & makes the UK a laughing stock globally in terms of international / climate commitments.
Well Sunak, the point activists have been making is NOT to impose these costs on ordinary people, you disingenuous PM.. ..but on the corporations responsible for the by forcing them to spend their profits to fix THEIR mistakes.

So what you're saying is that you CAN'T afford to pay for averting climate change but you CAN afford to rebuild your house after it burns, out of pocket, without benefit of homeowners insurance. Gotcha.
I have blogged, for the first time in ages (if you've only been following me here and aren't one of my long-term followers who followed me from the birdsite, you probably didn't even know I had a blog, did you)
I've written about wet bulb temperatures and why they are important for human health.
And why we should be worried about them.
I know youll all be shocked by this - but it turns out Rishi Sunak is a lying cu*t - The only conclusion you can draw is the corrupt tories are protecting their rich friends and their shares
Call me a cynic (or my perception is wrong) bt I'm quite convinced by now that politicians in the rich countries let people in the poorer ones who're hit hard by die on purpose. Their inaction speaks volumes (to me). They're even too caught up in lobbying in their own countries to bring about significant change. Forbidding glyphosate in the EU What for. Modernizing public transportation + making it available for all Unimportant. Progress in renewables F... it. Frustrating

if adults didn't care that the emissions from their combustion-engined vehicles caused diseases in children, they'd behave as they do
if oil bosses & bought-off politicians didn't care that fossil fuels are causing , they'd behave as they do
if relatively rich folk didn't care that eating meat caused animal suffering, they'd choose to eat meat
We absolutely should eat less meat. No argument.
For those of us who feel the need to carry on eating some meat, what's better than Spanish Serrano ham Small quantities, priced such that you really can't afford to eat too much, and delicious.
