UAE planned to use COP28 climate talks to make oil deals

The United Arab Emirates planned to use its role as the host of UN climate talks as an opportunity to strike oil and gas deals, the BBC has learned.

Leaked briefing documents reveal plans to discuss fossil fuel deals with 15 nations.

The UN body responsible for the COP28 summit told the BBC hosts were expected to act without bias or self-interest.

Allowing the UAE to host COP28 was controversial in itself, finding out these pricks were using COP meeting to hide oil deals is a fucking outrage!

We are in denial about the changes that are coming.

We are in denial about the need to adapt.

We are in denial about the new realities.

Look at this heat map…

…We. Are. So. Fucked.

As Kiwis we are a very laid back culture and we are fastidious about ignoring things that might lead to conflict, until conflict is upon us and then we are unrelenting in fighting for a righteous egalitarianism.

I believe we are at a turning point on climate change and we need to start being honest that nothing we can do now will stop what is coming.

For many of us, climate change has been a theoretical argument about something that might happen in the distant future.

It is no longer that.

It is now a present on going risk factor that poses an existential threat to us as a species and it is here now.

I’ve been following the IPCC reports on climate change from the beginning, and the criticism made against the IPCC was that due to its strict need for only unilaterally agreed science to make the official report, it was always underplaying the urgency and severity of the climate crisis.

There was always a section in each report where the science was presented that wasn’t universally accepted but included to show the reach and scope of debate.

Increasingly over the years, the worst case scenarios in the IPCC are playing out in real time.

The scientists were wrong, but only in their optimism.

You understand that each year that passes now will get worse or remain as starkly bad as they are now right?

You get that it doesn’t go back to normal after this right?

The extreme weather will get worse and worse.

More extreme than these extremes now.

Radical adaptation and communal community resourcing alongside a Big State approach to lynchpin infrastructure for basic self-reliance as an Island country facing enormous economic shockwaves is the only means to build the muscle mass to respond to the ever intensifying external disruption of late stage capitalism.

The need to increase military spending to 5% alongside the new costs for this infrastructure must be funded via new taxes aimed at corporations and banks.

A financial transaction tax and windfall profit tax would take the yoke of taxation off working people and place it upon the shoulders of the wealthy.

National and ACT  see mass immigration as a means to create fake growth at a time when we should be focused on de-growth.

Climate Crisis is here and adaptation is now.

We need to start rethinking Isolationism as a strength and Hyper-Regional Think Big as Economic Sovereignty.

The geopolitical shock waves are only getting more intense from here on in.

As you look around at the devastation these extreme weather events have caused, doesn’t being carbon neutral by 2050 look pathetic now?

We need a far larger vision than Luxon can produce, we need a far larger vision than the Left are even currently thinking.

We are beyond the tipping posts now: Greenland ice melt, the entire West Antarctic ice sheet, the Atlantic current failure, the changing of the jet stream, total biodiversity collapse, FFS what actually needs to happen before you sleepy Hobbits wake up!

I remember when the idea of instability in West Antarctica was a ‘never’ prospect, now in barely decades that has been turned on its head…

Meltdown of West Antarctic Ice Sheet unavoidable, study says

The West Antarctic Ice Sheet will continue to melt this century regardless of how much the world slashes planet-warming emissions, research from the British Antarctic Survey has found, locking in further sea level rise over the coming decades.

The study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change on Monday, found no matter the degree of warming this century, the melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet will speed up as warmer water in the Amundsen Sea erodes ice shelves bordering the ocean.

…the melt will happen regardless, no matter what we do now meaning we are fucked!

Just 100 companies are responsible for 71% of global emissions that are causing the climate crisis, and big oil KNEW in the 1990s that they were creating catastrophic climate change.

The comparisons between how Big Tobacco lied and manipulated the science linking smoking to cancer is as audacious as Big Oil has lied and manipulated the science linking CO2 to global warming.

We should be collectively suing Big Oil now and using the payouts to fund the urgent Green transition away from fossil fuels.

It is outrageous that our Government has not led this fight and instead capitulate to the polluters rather than challenge them. Indigenous people have been at the forefront of the climate crisis battle and have been the frontline between corporate polluting greed and sustainable habitats.

You can see why the State illegally spied on Māori Iwi fighting big oil in this country.

We need a vastly different vision for this country now, and it will require a revolution at the Ballot Box.

A specific plan to get elected with a radical agenda, force other Parties of the Left to agree, a 100 day plan to force it through and a strategy to hold the changes in place.

The next 3 years will start seeing climate change events beyond the ability to ignore and will terrify the electorate.

We as a movement must have a plan and an ability to articulate that or we perish as a movement, as a people and as a country.

This is now an existential threat to our species playing out in real time.

The time for an eco revolution is now.

  1. We need more oil! NZ is fucked without an oil refinery. When the price of diesel goes up, everything goes up in price.
    Drilling and pumping more oil is the only way to beat inflation and the cost of living.

    The planet can handle it because it will sacrifice itself for the future so the good have got fuck all to moan about. Or, the planet will die? Or, Venezuelan oil will come on-line just in time to tank the price of oil.

  2. The government should ration gasoline. It’s been done before, I believe, during wartime so I think we could do it again. Of course, we would have to improve public transport if we did that, and also make it a less expensive option.

    Such a move would probably save overseas exchange as well..

  3. I believe we are at a turning point on climate change and we need to start being honest that nothing we can do now will stop what is coming.”

    Yeah climate change expert Greta Thunberg said runaway climate change would happen this year back in 2019. She deleted the tweet when nothing happened. The Inconvenient Truth documentary can now safely be put in the fiction section. Just like this brilliant Doomer documentary from the 70’s that no-one remembers (presented by none other than Star Trek’s Spock!):

  4. Oil is responsible for transport of people and goods at such a cheap price we all benefit ,Oil is responsible for plastic which has been a game changer in keeping us healthy.
    We need to clean up pollution and waste and work out how we can keep using oil and coal cleaner.
    We cannot go back to the middle ages relying on wind and sun to are power. .

  5. ” We are beyond the tipping posts now: Greenland ice melt, the entire West Antarctic ice sheet, the Atlantic current failure, the changing of the jet stream, total biodiversity collapse, FFS what actually needs to happen before you sleepy Hobbits wake up ”

    Bomber we are expendable except the plutocracy who will have an escape option like the rich are entitled to.

    Change human for parasite.

  6. Go to YouTube & search out COP 23 & watch all those Fuel burning Private Jets who flew to COP 23 & who are now stuck in Ice on the Runaway in Munich, Germany, I reckon they would love to have abit of Global warming there to extricate themselves from the ice? Europe & Nth America is under severe Snowstorm weather & freezing conditions, on Zerohedge there’s Satellite images of the snow cover blanketing the entirety of Europe, correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t this rubbish the whole Global warming debate because this is Global freezing?

    • Can you strum that banjo any loader? Zero Hedge what a fucking joke! There’s a hole bunch of you soulless trolls on this blog. I used to read Zero Hedge before the Trump days for a bit of a laugh anyone still on that site is a sick individual.
