China will also not pay “climate reparations” with cash.
Say what you will about China, but it definitely maintains a “China First” stance when dealing with elite globalists.
Take, for example, what Chinese officials are reportedly doing at the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) in Egypt. They may be forcing the globalists to abandon the ridiculous pledge to limit global warming to 1.5°C (2.7°F), according to insiders to the negotiations.
First drafts of the pact to emerge from the United Nations Cop 27 meeting in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt are expected to be issued tonight.
But the promise that the Earth will not be allowed to warm by more than 1.5°C (2.7°F) could be dropped, with China pushing for the wording to be dropped.
…China, the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitter by volume, is urging behind the scenes that countries should aim for 2°C (3.6°F) as it would require less drastic restrictions on its industry.
The 1.5c limit emerged at the Paris Climate talks in 2015, when it was agreed that countries should limit warming ‘by well below 2°C (3.6°F), preferably to 1.5°C (2.7°F)’.
US climate envoy John Kerry has made thinly veiled digs that China wants to scrap the limit.
India is also not on board with the arbitrary number. Conference officials should have expected this sticking point, as the o 1.5°C (2.7°F) goal has been questioned since August.
…[A]t a G20 meeting in Indonesia in August, ministers were unable to agree a communique on climate change, as China and India were reported to have questioned the scientific feasibility of the 1.5C threshold.
Such are the differences between countries here, there are fears that the final document being drafted by the Egyptians may dilute or exclude the 1.5C goal.
“I have been worried that there seems to some kind of attempt to say maybe 1.5C is not achievable any more,” the former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, told the Irish Times on the sidelines of this summit.
“That is not acceptable,” she said.
Mrs Robinson, who is chair of the Elders group of former political leaders, has released a statement with around 200 of the world’s largest businesses and civil society groups urging governments to align their national targets with 1.5C.
Finally, China has let it be known it will only be paying “non cash” climate reparations.
China would be willing to support a mechanism for compensating poorer countries for losses and damage caused by climate change, its climate envoy Xie Zhenhua said Wednesday at the COP27 climate summit in Egypt, but China later said that would not involve contributing cash.
Xie said China had no obligation to participate, but stressed his solidarity with those calling for more action from wealthy nations on the issue, and outlined the damage China had suffered from climate-linked weather extremes.
“We strongly support the claims from developing countries, especially the most vulnerable countries, for claiming loss and damage compensation because China is also a developing country and we also suffered a lot from extreme weather events,” Xie said, speaking through a translator.
Perhaps if China prevented the global humanitarian disaster that would occur if these policies were implemented, it might go a small way to making up for the covid pandemic it unleashed from Wuhan.
In a nutshell, China has been the best thing about the 2027 conference of climate alarmists.DONATE
