COP26 is yet another fraud perpetrated on the general public.
From the massive carbon footprint created by all the delegates and their teams to get there to the equally massive carbon footprint created by the protesters to get there, which nobody seems to have commented on.
To the enormous carbon footprint being generated by their presence in feeding them, the increase in power use for their computers and mobile phones, lighting, accomdation etc.
There are a number of things that are not being considered in these talks.
Shutting down coal-fired power stations has two massive and not discussed side-effects.
The first is that the loss of that base-load power will cause massive power outages everywhere.
You can see this happening already in China where power stations are shutting down or restricting power use because of their childish banning od Australian coal. You don't save face by preventing the proper investigation into the source of Covid-19, and subsequently banning imports proves you have something to hide.
The second one is that of the emissions from a coal-fired power station is micro soot particles.
While these should be cleaned up they are currently acting as a massive solar umbrella and reducing the solar radiation hitting the planet. How do we know this? The reports of this study clearly show that the particulate matter form burning coal have a cooling effect on the planet and were the major cause of the devestating droughts in Africa.
You'll not hear or read this from any of the climate activists because it doesn't fit their rhetoric.
The other thing that is just beginning to appear in their missives and talks is the role of Methane as a greenhouse gas. This has been the major cause of the changung climate for the last 2,000+ years.
The main source is now and has always been swamps.
The man-made part of that are paddy fields which are effectively swamps.
The exact percentage is difficult to calculate but estimates put the surface area under paddy fields as between 30% to 50% of all Asian countries.
Imaging getting agreement to stop that. No, I can't either, but Methane is 10 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas. To compound the problem of Methane, in sunlight it breaks down to water vapour (#2 greenhouse gas) and CO2 (#3 greenhouse gas).
The bottom line here is that all the BS from the climate activists will kill millions of people if they get their way, and it will not stop or halt climate change.
