COP27: A Parade Of Climate Hypocrisy

Published by Forbes

Every year, global climate summits feature a parade of hypocrisy, as the world’s elite arrive on private jets to lecture humanity on cutting carbon emissions. The current UN climate summit in Egypt offers more breathtaking hypocrisy than usual, because the world’s rich are zealously lecturing poor countries about the dangers of fossil fuels—after devouring massive amounts of new gas, coal, and oil.

Hræsni ríku elítunnar og vestrænna leiðtoga

Published by Morgunbladid

Á hverju ári bjóða alþjóðleg­ar lofts­lags­ráðstefn­ur fram skrúðsýn­ing­ar hræsni þar sem elíta heims­ins kem­ur í einkaþotum til að út­deila visku sinni til mann­kyns um að draga úr kol­efn­is­los­un. Lofts­lags­ráðstefn­an í Egyptalandi í nóv­em­ber mun bjóða upp á enn meiri hræsni en vana­lega, vegna þess að hinir ríku í heim­in­um munu pre­dika ákaft yfir fá­tæk­ari lönd­um um hætt­una sem staf­ar af jarðefna­eldsneyti – eft­ir að hafa sópað að sér feiki­legu magni af nýju gasi, kol­um og olíu.

Cop27: va in scena la grande truffa dei paesi ricchi ai danni dei poveri

Published by Tempi

Ogni anno, ai vertici globali sul clima va in scena una parata di ipocrisia, con le élite mondiali che arrivano a bordo di jet privati per fare prediche all’umanità sul taglio delle emissioni di CO2. Il vertice sul clima di questo novembre in Egitto offrirà una dose di ipocrisia anche più incredibile del solito, perché i ricchi del pianeta offriranno ai paesi poveri fervorini sui pericoli dei combustibili fossili, dopo aver divorato nuove massicce quantità di gas, carbone e petrolio.

Climate Change and the Lancet’s ‘Heat Death’ Deception

Published by Wall Street Journal

As the United Nations’ annual global climate summit, COP27, nears, it’s important to look with skepticism at the academic reports many news outlets cite as evidence supporting radical climate policies. Too often, they use highly skewed data that seem to have been carefully selected to support aggressive environmental regulations. One recent and much-cited Lancet report appears deliberately deceptive.

Pushing the same old climate policies at COP27 is simply insane

Published by The Telegraph

Another global climate summit has ended in disappointment – this is hardly surprising, given that global leaders at COP27 in Egypt once again pursed the failed policies of the past decades instead of unleashing green energy innovation. Bjorn Lomborg wrote a long essay with Jordan Peterson for The Telegraph (also available here), which was published right before the start of the conference.

Fler isbjörnar och färre bränder

Published by Svenska Dagbladet

Man kan lätt få för sig att livet på jorden ständigt blir sämre. Medierna lyfter hela tiden fram den ena katastrofen efter den andra och kommer med skräckinjagande prognoser. I ljuset av denna störtflod av pessimism kan man förstå varför många – särskilt unga – verkligen tror att världen går under. Sanningen är att även om det finns problem så blir världen faktiskt bättre. Vi får bara höra det så sällan.

Países ricos ofrecerán hipocresía y sermones en la cumbre del clima

Published by Milenio

Todos los años, las cumbres mundiales sobre el clima ofrecen un desfile de hipocresía, ya que la élite global llega en aviones privados para sermonear a la humanidad sobre la reducción de las emisiones de carbono. Este noviembre, la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático (COP27) —que se realizará en Egipto— ofrecerá una hipocresía más asombrosa de lo habitual, ya que los ricos del mundo sermonearán con celo a los países pobres sobre los peligros de los combustibles fósiles, después de devorar cantidades masivas de gas, carbón y petróleo.
