UK minister Alok Sharma says world leaders are failing to show the necessary level of ambition.
Ok! So people on here saying control/reduce the population, well there are two main ways.. wars (Big ones) or pestilence..hmm so does covid count as helping? (Engineered...An Asian country doing its climate bit) Removed

It seems your population control relies on a lot of human suffering. How about family planning, birth control, raising up the status of women and children, and better healthcare so people don't have to keep replacing their dead children. Covid primarily removes people who are well beyond their reproductive heydey.

Until scientists and politician understand, agree and to manage global populations the chances of effective action are close to zero.

The UK target of 68% reduction by 2030 is by reference to levels in 1990. A clear distortion - sounds great but completely misleading.

Since 1990 much of the reduction in UK emissions arises as manufacturing was offshored to China.

Bozo and Co need to crack on and do it, not just talk about it how they would like it to be.
Scientists across the world were allowed to put their minds together to produce a vaccine in record short time and for once the scientists were listened to by politicians.
Scientists should now be listened to and be allowed to put their brains together in fixing this much greater threat than coronavirus.

Until the population problem is acknowledged, I cannot take this seriously. Without humans, there would be no problem. We need to take the pressure off the planet.

There is no climate emergency. The fluctuating earth's temperatures have been happening for thousands of years, we cannot influence it & the keyboard warriors are still alive.

Now f**k off & take Greta Thunberg with you. I will only be here for a fraction of time & you are doing my head in.

Ye, the climate has changed.
And it has changed note rapidly since the industrial revolution.

So we humans have and are having an impact - a rapid one.

You say you 'will only be here for a fraction of time' which is true, and which is why you feel you can ignore even the remote possibility and stuff future generations.

The world's elite are playing with fire. If they keep introducing 'emergency measures' then they will cause a revolt. Emergency measures always hit the poor hardest and after Covid and years of tax rises on consumption coupled with currency debasement, the poor are not in a good place to take any further financial hits. Maybe the Davos crowd could contribute this time?
The world's elite are a sorry bunch. Dead set on destroying first world economies and denying developing countries the chance to industrialize. All based on the pseudoscience of Anthropogenic Global Warming.
Wiping out cheap electrification, transport and agriculture will cause riots and revolutions first though.
The green nutjobs don't realise what they are about to unleash.

Think your assertion fits this definition of pseudoscience : pseudo-scientific claims fit with any imaginable set of observable outcomes. What this means is that you could do a test that shows a scientific claim to be false, but no conceivable test could show a pseudo-scientific claim to be false. Sciences are testable, pseudo-sciences are not.

Ah, so I see. When the 'elite' (i.e. the scientific community) get you a vaccine for covid so you don't have to drown in your own lung fluid after catching it in Tesco, they're great. But when they spend decades proving that man made CO2 warms the planet, they're lying and it's all a conspiiiiracy!!1

Keep proving why nobody in the 'elite' wants to engage with you...

Even the fossil fuel industry accepts climate heating is due to burning fossil fuels. It's only people like you in denial. You have something against people who understand the problem enough to care about doing something about it? That says even more about you. It's corporations manufacturing rubbish we don't need who use most energy. They'll be no riots, only a shift to clean energy. Alright?

The single greatest gift you can give the planet right now is to not have kids. You can be all green and carbon conscious etc but at the end of the day the moment you concieve you might as well have not bothered...
Or commit suicide........both have the same effect of reducing population. Do you fancy doing your bit???? Removed

not the BBC ones - but the latest scientific data and readings of daily atmospheric co2 levels does not lie - and totally uneffected bu the covid lockdowns and proving we have zero control over them

why is it always by 2030 or by 2050 why not start it all in 2021 by stop production of all fossil fuelled vehicles, there are enough already being used that they dont need to be continued to be made, there should be no more sales of these polluting vehicles we all should wait longer to buy new vehicles. Also stop production of new technology we have enough & recycle repair what we already have.

Humans need to slow the rate of breeding. The most damaging thing one can do to the environment is produce a child. Plus, what kind of a future would a child born today experience? Not a pleasant one. Too many people, too few resources and far too much pollution. We've already trashed the planet.

Having witnessed how, at great environmental cost, and posing a health hazard to many, Prince William and the Dutchess of Cambridge travelled to Cardiff in the height of a pandemic, wearing no face covering and indifferent to the world, then it says it all. Both they and their advisors lack basic social intelligence. Appalling. And they call that leadership. God help us. Removed
