COP26 | Facing Existential Crisis–We Can Turn this Around if We Choose | COP26 Backdoor | Kiss the Ground

Wow, here is a super powerful speech by António Guterres, the United Nations secretary general, calling on world leaders to escalate climate action, equating the world’s current track to “digging our own graves” and “treating the earth as our toilet”, during the opening ceremony of the COP26 summit in Glasgow.

The speech by the UN secretary general, very simply states accurate points.

If, as a leader of a wealthy country of the global north, you can’t hear what he is saying nor respond with a conscience to FINALLY change what your priorities are, you should step down.

We need leaders who are there for all of us and for biodiversity, not greedy cowards who only want to pocket money from the BIG Oil, Ag and Pharma industries, etc.

António Guterres, the United Nations secretary general,

Remarks by H.E. Mr. Abdulla Shahid, President of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly

Glasgow,

October 31,  2021

“Excellencies,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me to be candid, for you are my family:

We are facing an existential crisis

We have the capacities and resources to address this crisis,

But we are simply not doing enough.

We must be honest about this, with ourselves, with each other, and with the rest of the world.

We have had decades to argue the facts about climate change, about the power of renewables, about the fine details of monitoring or cost-sharing.

Yet, we have still failed to act with the conviction and determination required.

That may be a hard truth, but it is the truth.

Another truth: we are entirely capable of turning this around, if we so choose.”

“My friends,

We have the science.

We have the resources.

We agree on the urgency.

What then is holding us back?

Only one variable remains… and it is us.

We have to make the choice to address climate change.

We have to choose the hard but necessary actions.

We have to listen to the science and, increasingly, our global population, who are demanding action.

 ……. We have run out of excuses. 

It is time to do the right thing.

In the words of Frankie the dinosaur, who addressed the General Assembly, 

let us not choose EXTINCTION.

Let us work together as one global family and use the capacities and capabilities at hand to do what needs to be done.

Let us get this done.”

7 Species Hit Hard by Climate Change—Including One That’s Already Extinct

Corporate Gifts are Giftig | Backdoor to COP26 

Corporate gifts are giftig (German/Deutsch for poisonous) to government leaders. Seducing them to remain mute and dysfunctional, as they deposit them in their bank accounts.

Got the Point?

Register and listen for free to all 2 weeks of the COP26 educational events presented by 

COP26 Backdoor – We Don’t Have Time

Listen to the Scientists, Entrepreneurs, Farmers, Artists, Journalists and Intellectuals who are reaching out to help people to help themselves.  NOT GOVT LEADERS, many of whom have done not-a-fucking-thing FOR THE LAST 26 YEARS OF CLIMATE CONFERENCES. 

Instead, hear the voices of community leaders and people who have come from the Global South and all over the world, who wish to defend their habitats, their right to clean air, water and nutrient-rich soil, whose lands are being washed away or scorched by human induced petroleum fed global warming. 

Learn about sustainable, fair, renewable and positive actions that we can take in our own homes and communities and ways to bring back ownership to ‘the Commons’ – our own resources of fresh air and water and wildlife, pulled into the wealth and responsibility of the entire community (not funneled off to the CEOs of those who have taken private ownership). 

(I  just made this above paragraph up, because that’s what I’d be interested in hearing about). 

Nevertheless, listen to the truth and experiences of people who are there to share their stories, not the lies with ties to those dangling their misinformation to sway the public into buying into them.

Let’s Participate in Educating ourselves, not wait for any government mandates to happen any time soon, such as FDR’s New Deal with the WPA Works Progress Administration

Greenwich Mean Time is 4 hours ahead of Eastern Time

I just read that “FDR helped lay the groundwork for the post-war peace organization that would become the United Nations”. I didn’t know that the UN is a PEACE ORGANIZATION! Funny how the imbalance of power has tweaked and tilted the un-level playing field over the last decades, manipulated by those with economic thrust, to bludgeon the public with misinformation and disinformation.
