"Government has no plans"

But it will happen anyway.

Since when did this appalling Government "plan" to do anything except mislead everyone resident in the United Kingdom, Europe or indeed the whole world?

One questions in todays post pandemic climate why this is not being done by a small team of diplomats and video conference technology.

It would save all the emmisions from activists flying in to make lots of noise.

The Climate Summit should be hosted by a country that is taking positive and substantial steps towards improving national and international climate change.

Therefore it should not be the UK which is doing the opposite and Johnson should not be hosting such an event with his track record.

It seems silly to delay it, when it could be done over zoom over this four-day weekend we've got coming up.
Oh wait rather than set an example, officials will be flown in from around the world to peacock around pretending anything they're saying will amount to more than a big expenses bill for the taxpayer.

I suppose Boris wants to update his "gazing into the distance, in a statesman-like pose" picture, perhaps elbowing Biden, and generally hobnobbing with the great and the good!

Nothing will come of it, of course, as he will still cut overseas aid and will slip through a coal mine or two and lots of motorway building, along with HS2!

Politicians need their stage! His latest one cost £2.5m!

They also have 'no plans' on pretty much everything else, especially how we are going to reach our climate commitment goals or reducing plastic pollution.

However they do have plans on spending loads of money on useless vanity projects like expanding our nuclear arsenal, or HS2.

as many as 30,000 people could attend in Glasgow (this page)

Glasgow hoteliers will be the only beneficiaries if COP 26 goes ahead and, conversely, the losers if it goes virtual on Zoom or if it is cancelled altogether.

When you think about it , delaying a 'climate emergency summit' does not really work!

Let's hope people turn up to it with clear commitments to make real global change and reductions where needed, not just fluffy wuffy cotton wool projects at a national level which continue to facilitate this current stupid practice of exporting 'global warming' to each other to hide bad overall consumption.

Does the Government have any plans other than trying to prove Brexit isn't a disaster? I'm not attacking Brexiteers here, I'm saying that there has been massive cockups in it's handling and it's implementation.

Now do hundreds or thousands of people really need to attend this event in person or can they just attend online? I think going in person adds a little more to the problem.

Does the Government have any plans other than trying to prove Brexit isn't a disaster? I'm not attacking Brexiteers here, I'm saying that there has been massive cockups in it's handling and it's implementation.

Now do hundreds or thousands of people really need to attend this event in person or can they just attend online? I think going in person adds a little more to the problem.

When you think about it , delaying a 'climate emergency summit' does not really work!

Let's hope people turn up to it with clear commitments to make real global change and reductions where needed, not just fluffy wuffy cotton wool projects at a national level which continue to facilitate this current stupid practice of exporting 'global warming' to each other to hide bad overall consumption.

Never find any cost figures on insane wind and solar power plant (WASPP) technologies to get 24/7/365 electricity. 80%WASPPs called for in 6th Carbon Budget costs £31.83 billion every year FOREVER. Equivalent cost for Rolls-Royce nuclear power plants (NPPs) is £8.41 billion/year. 80% WASPPs will kill thousands more poor and underprivileged people.

The Climate Summit should be hosted by a country that is taking positive and substantial steps towards improving national and international climate change.

Therefore it should not be the UK which is doing the opposite and Johnson should not be hosting such an event with his track record.

It’s no good thinking climate change can be solved purely with green energy, green tech. That’s only half the story. There must be parallel ecological restoration on a massive scale, globally and here in the UK, to provide carbon sink and restore the natural world, biodiversity.
The UK has one of the worst records for wildlife destruction. We’ve destroyed our forests, wetlands, native wildlife.

"Government has 'no plans' "

No change, then. The current political class still no idea what they could do, or should do or even how to prepare workable plans. Despite the obvious and desperate need for thorough effective national planning that has existed for years.

They even ignore those plans that were in place, prepared, tested and ready.

Calling them clueless would be outright flattery.

The governments of the world are only talking about the 1.5 degrees target because it's the least worst scenario (but it's in no way the most likely scenario), and the most politically palatable to sell to voters.

We're actually on course for 3 to 5 degrees of global warming.
