Ist Bill Gates ein Klima-Retter?

Die Klimakrise sei langfristig viel schwerer zu lösen als eine kurzfristige Pandemie:

– Diese sei Ende 2022 besiegt, das Klimaproblem müsse bis spätestens 2050 gelöst sein.
– Es reiche aber nicht, die Treibhausgase bis dahin um 80 oder 90 Prozent zu senken, das Ziel muss Null Treibhausgase sein.
– Die Welt werde bis dahin aber dreimal so viel Strom brauchen wie heute.
– Und dieses Ziel sei nur mit Hilfe von „neuen, supersicheren, kleinen Atomkraftwerken“ erreichbar.

Leaders at One Planet summit focus on protecting biodiversity

(11.01.2020)

The one-day summit will focus on four major topics: protecting terrestrial and marine ecosystems; promoting agroecology, a more sustainable way to grow food; increasing funding to protect biodiversity; and identifying links between deforestation and the health of humans and animals.

About 30 leaders, government officials and heads of international organizations were to attend, including U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. China will be represented by Vice Premier Han Zheng.

COVID-19 recovery offers ‘chance to change course’, Guterres tells One Planet Summit

(11.01.2021)

The Secretary-General noted that innovations and nature-based solutions are especially promising, and that preserving biodiversity also creates jobs. According to the World Economic Forum, emerging business opportunities across nature could create 191 million jobs by 2030, he added.

At the same time, with a financing gap of $711 billion per year until 2030 to meet global biodiversity targets, increased and sustained financing will be crucial to transition away from polluting sectors, Mr. Guterres said.

“The time has come to…align public and private financial flows with the Paris Agreement commitments and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and integrate the goal of carbon neutrality into all economic and fiscal decisions.”

So war das einmal gedacht mit dem Biogas …

(23.06.2018)

So war das mal gedacht mit dem Biogas in den 80er-Jahren. Verwertung des auf dem Hof anfallenden Mists bzw. der Gülle in einer kleinen Biogasanlage, und dann erst den so verbesserten Dünger raus auf das Feld. Wie so oft wurde auch dieses so wunderbare Konzept ins Gegenteil verkehrt, um nicht zu sagen pervertiert.

3 Things Scientists Need to Know About the IPCC

(01.09.2015)

The bottom line is that this is a week of naked political horse trading that goes on behind closed doors. Journalists are not allowed to witness what takes place, which is why we’ve been looking at official IPCC photos here. This is what they permit us to see.

It’s only after the diplomats have haggled over this Summary – paragraph by paragraph – that the final version gets officially released at a press conference.

The world is then told that science has spoken. But what’s just happened has nothing to do with science. Scientific truth is not determined in the dead of night by UN-level negotiations. On what planet would such an approach make scientific sense?

But the bad news doesn’t stop there. There’s actually a step in the IPCC process in which the original, lengthy report gets amended so that it conforms to the politically-negotiated Summary. I am not making this up.

3 Things Scientists Need to Know About the IPCC

(01.09.2015)

So what’s going on here? How do we explain this outlandish, perverse process?

Well Rajendra Pachauri, who chaired the IPCC for 13 years, said that its “main customer” was something called the UNFCCC. Jean-Pascal van Ypersele is an IPCC official who’s working very hard to become its new chairman. This is slide #26 from a presentation he gave a few years ago: The IPCC, he says, is “eager to continue serving the UNFCCC process.” What does that mean?

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is an international treaty. If you’re the UN, and you’re trying to persuade nearly 200 different parties to act together, you need to start from somewhere. You need an established body of facts, a master document, a bible that everyone can use as a jumping-off point. IPCC reports, it turns out, serve that purpose.

In other words, the IPCC’s primary function is to enable a political instrument – a treaty between nation states. This is high octane politics.
