Climate Change: Scientists Say "Last Chance"

What an utter twat!
I love the excuse from his office.

Marvin Rees flew nines hours to appear at a TED conference where he gave a 14-minute talk about ways to cut carbon emissions
The UK's first city mayor to declare a climate crisis has been questioned for flying nine hours to attend a conference to urge leaders to cut CO2.

Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees told the TED conference in Canada that city mayors could influence carbon policy.
Climate campaigners Flight Free UK calculated the trip created 2.016 tonnes (2,016kg) of CO2 per passenger and was at odds with his message.
The mayor's office said he had a full agenda with networking opportunities.

That sound more like he had a full agenda with freebie opportunities.
It seems the mayors are following Khan and are all busy spending public money on what seem to be free holidays.

Those networking opportunities might prove very useful.
It would have been even better if Marvin wasn’t on his second and final term, and that due to him being such a failure than the city held a referendum and decided to scrap having any more elected mayors. :)

To be fair to Marvin, this trip was paid for by someone else, so won’t cost the city as much as the £40,000,000 he lost when he pulled the plug on his Bristol energy project!

I'm intrigued that he managed to do the journey in nine hours, presumably he'll want to get back to the trough so that's another nine hours and 2 tons of CO2.

Since the nine hour trip seems to be from London, Bristol is 12 hours plus, it suggests he went from Bristol to London to get his flight. More emissions.

My suggestion to save the planet is stop having climate summits at holiday locations and do the work by zoom meetings.

It's just another one of Orwell's Animal Farm rules:

No animal shall fly anywhere...
... unless you are a climate change campaigner

All animals are equal...
... some are more equal than others!

Indeed.
The hypocrisy of the green lobby is rather impressive, they assume the moral high ground and claim to be unassailable when they're no less averse to taking a free junket to somewhere nice than anyone else.

Isn't it time to trot out that graphic of all the predictions that utterly failed to materialise? The one with all the predictions of doom and gloom. I'm sure that someone has it to hand and it's still very much on point.
 
What I find fascinating is how quickly the green lobby adopts even more shrill language when they realise they are not getting any attention!

Now that Roger Hallam's Extinction Rebellion and the spin off Insulate Britain are not getting press attention due to the energy supply and cost of living crisis plus a war in Ukraine they switch to a new hysterical phrase to try and grab attention again...this time they are shrilly talking about:

CARBON BOMBS!

An unstoppable carbon bomb that is you guessed it .... ten years away if we don't immediately cut emissions to zero before 2025.

You might ask what a carbon bomb is, well in actuality it is an oil or gas project in the process of being authorised by a Government.

So far this new term has failed to gain traction along with their other favourite new one:

CODE RED FOR HUMANNITY!

Personally I am still waiting for the icebergs off Dover and the Mad Max Dessert wastelands in Surrey!
 
That's because the green agenda is pushed by marxists, it has as much to with environmentalism as russias special military operation is to peace keeping
Indeed and the defacto leader of the movement at the moment is an old Marxist Roger Hallam who has been spending decades trying to find a wedge issue to get the Prols to rise up throw off the shackles of representative government and instigate a new Anarcho-Socialist Society led by "Peoples Assemblies"....those Peoples Assemblies will of course be advised by Hallam and his chums about what choices to make.

Hallam has even openly admitted that he is using Climate change as a wedge issue to enact the societal changes that Anarcho-Socialists have dreamt about, to that end he uses extremely manipulative tactics to get his way. I have posted this before but this exert about Hallam from an independent report about Extinction Rebellion is chilling:

"Hallam even mentioned that during a recent panel at Kings College he had “told the students they’re soon going to die if they don’t rebel.”132 Stressing rebelling as the only appropriate response to the impending crisis, Hallam pointed out to his audience: “that’s what we would do if our parents were lying at home and hadn’t eaten for weeks. That’s what you would do if there were body parts on the way to the tube, if there were women in this room who had been raped.”133 During his speech Hallam said he would not stay for the question and answer session at the end of the panel. Indeed, he also encouraged those present not to carry on with the formalities of the event. Rather he told his audience, “what…I suggest to you now, instead of continuing with the panel, you split up into small groups and share your emotional response to the prospect of losing everything you love. It seems to me that’s the only human thing to do.”134 Hallam continued by saying, “I suggest then you go home and watch the professors on YouTube until you breakdown and cry, and cry like you don’t think you’re ever going to stop and then come back and do what is now obvious. Rebel!”

I've often wondered just how likely you are to obtain a degree in climate science. If you are a MMGW sceptic.

You might manage a bachelors degree if you were very careful about the way you expressed your opinions, but anything higher is awarded through the patronage of your academic supervisor(s). Research fellowships are exclusively awarded to those who lick arrses with the most enthusiasm.

What? Was it not Brexit that affected pudding availability in the South?
 
It wasnt for climate change we'd still be in the ice age. Thank flip for that, eh ?.

If it wasn't for climate change we would still be attached to France.

Scientists haven't found the fossilised 4x4's responsible for that wondrous event though.

If it wasn’t for climate change I’d be living in a tropical region about 20 degrees C hotter than it is now…………..and I hate really hot weather.

My local seaside and beach would be underwater too…………Thank goodness for climate change and the water level receding.

I thought they became more vocal when the Kremlin was needing some distraction.

Only underwater twice a day, though!

Thats the irony of the ‘rising sea levels’ due to climate change.
Due to the topography the sea has receded over three miles. So not just the beach, but a few whole towns would be ’in the sea’ if the water level rose to its former setting :)

I quite like the current local climate, no thick ice, no hot and steamy weather and no active volcanoes.

Handy conflation of of climate and plate tectonics.
