#COP28 is a boondoggle of O&G lobbyists and grandstanding politicians. That's it.
The president of this COP is mansplaining knowledgeable women as he plans to double oil production next year.
The #UN is impotent to discuss climate change and action. Period the end.

Whoever thought that it was a good idea to bring the world together at a country whose ideology perpetuates barbarous #HumanRights abuses, its economy is completely dependent on polluting #FossilFuels, and its leadership is headed by a corrupt, misogynistic #ClimateChange denialist oligarch...
“Canadian policymakers make a political calculation that coming out strongly or critical of Israel or supportive of the Palestinians is likely to get the Americans angry with us,”
“It just seems like everything that #Canada does is triangulated based on what the #US and #Israel are saying. That’s more important to them than being aligned with all other members of the #UN, for example, or every humanitarian agency, or a majority of Canadian public opinion.”

There, as a “guest” from #Canada, is VP of #Suncor, a company active in the #exploitation of the #tarsands.

They must immediately, prominently charge this apparently global and brazenly systematic activity under recent EU law criminalizing wide-scale environmental damage “comparable to ecocide”.
If true, it affects EU (and the world) profoundly, cynically seeking profit by hijacking and sabotaging what SHOULD be a climate protection body. The attempt to coopt a process whose job is to stop wide-scale ecological disaster should itself be seen as ecological disaster.
Don't let there become the ecological equivalent of white collar crimes, tolerated because they seem or are portrayed as too abstract. This is where the real damage us done.
There is something especially perverse, cynical, ugly and dangerously fraud-like about not just doing such lobbying but in the guise of a RESPONSE to climate threats.
This is a good test case because it's not like an isolated event that happens afar, such as an oil spill. Its EFFECT extends to and solidly occurs WITHIN the EU. Each and every policy change affecting a member nation should implicate anyone implementing that change in EU because such changes occur within the EU and all that happens outside is the lobbying for and agreement.
Put them on notice NOW, before the meeting, that such policy changes as flow from this neeting will be charged so no one can be surprised by this interpretation after..
Seek relevant email and physical documents about meeting planning and agendas that that flowed to/from the EU prior, and later followup documents that implement any lobbied-for sale or policy change.
Charge all involved, those lobbying and those implementing, even though they aren't physically in the EU. Arrest them later upon entry for any followup purpose.
Even if it fails, it highlights the need for more, broader & stronger laws.
Every counter-argument made, every loophole cited, and every appeal filed should have its basis scrutinized and its key elements meticulously catalogued so they can be flowed directly into new & more solid law impervious to such, because actions like these IMPLEMENT deadly regulatory capture. They MUST be seen as capital crimes against humanity.
MASSIVE #SCANDAL: Leaked docs show the president of the #UN global #climate summit #COP28 secretly planned to lobby countries to increase the United Arab Emirates’ oil & gas exports.

Ab dem 30. November treffen sich Vertreterïnnen aus insgesamt 198 Ländern in #Dubai, um an der #UN-Klimakonferenz teilzunehmen.
Bei RiffReporter berichten wir für euch intensiv zu der #COP28. Was ihr vorab schon wissen solltet:
Vor der Weltklimakonferenz in Dubai fordern Wissenschaftlerïnnen einen Ausstieg aus der fossilen Wirtschaft. Dieses Jahr sind die Stimmen noch besorgter als sonst – denn die vergangenen 12 Monate waren die heißesten seit 125.000 Jahren. https://www.riffreporter.de/de/umwelt/cop28-klimakrise-hitze-jahr-2023-heiss-erderhitzung-klimarekord-ueberschwmmung
89.000 Frauen und Mädchen wurden laut UN 2022 ermordet
Im vergangenen Jahr wurden nach UN-Angaben etwa 89.000 Frauen und Mädchen weltweit ermordet - in mehr als der Hälfte der Fälle von dem Partner oder einem Familienmitglied. Die Zahl der Femizide ist so hoch wie seit 20 Jahren nicht.
positive Töne im Artikel:
"[Es] ändert sich die Politik. Konnten Agrarchemiekonzerne früher mit festem Rückhalt in den meisten Regierungen rechnen, hat sich der Wind längst gedreht. Die #EU hat beschlossen, dass der Einsatz von Pestiziden bis 2030 um [die Hälfte reduziert werden soll]. Ein ähnliches Ziel steht auch beim #UN-Weltnaturschutzgipfel der Vereinten Nationen im Dezember in Montreal auf der Tagesordnung."
Tatsächlich hat die #UN 2022 in #Montreal auf der #COP15 sehr wichtige Schritte Richtung Biodiversität gelegt! Wichtig auch der Begriff #regenerativeAgriculture , der bereits bei #cop27 prominent war und auch bei der #cop28 auf der Agenda steht.
Hier soll nicht nur das Problem mit Pestiziden, Biodiversität und Überdüngung (Nitrate,Stickstoff) angegangen werden, sondern auch den Humusaufbau und die #CO2 Speicherung im Boden. Damit Landwirtschaft klimaverträglicher und nachhaltiger sein soll, also auch nachfolgende Generationen fruchtbare Böden voller Mikroorganismen vorfinden.
@w7voa UN Secretary-General António Guterres is useless. He says a bunch of politically correct things but nothing changes.

Over 10,000 civilians killed in #Ukraine since start of war
The #UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission has confirmed that more than 10,000 civilians, including at least 560 children, have been killed in Ukraine since 24 February 2022, with an additional 18,500 injuries reported.
The HRMMU cautioned that its numbers are likely an undercount, given the challenges of verifying information from active war zones.

The medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières (#MSF) said a clinic it operated in Gaza City was attacked on Monday morning. Part of the building was engulfed in flames, it said, and four marked MSF cars were burned while a fifth was found crushed by a heavy vehicle or a tank. The charity said it was not immediately aware of the status of one member of staff and 20 family members.
Twenty-eight premature babies were rescued from al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City and taken to #Egypt on Monday. The head of the World Health Organization (#WHO) said 31 “very sick” babies were moved from #alShifa hospital in a joint operation with the #UN and the #Palestinian Red Crescent Society, and 12 of them had been flown to Cairo. Three babies remain in #Gaza.
World is on track for "hellish" 3C of #globalwarming, #UN warns before #Cop28 #climate summit in #UnitedArabEmirates (#UAE). The report found that today’s #carbon-cutting policies are so inadequate that 3C of heating would be reached this century.
To get on track for agreed target of 1.5C, 22bn tonnes of CO2 must be cut from projected total in 2030. That's 42% of global emissions of the world’s five worst polluters: #China, #US, #India, #Russia and #Japan.
