G7 leaders at their first face-to-face meeting after nearly two years of virtuality have promised to usher in a “green industrial revolution” that will end the Western world’s use of automobiles, carbon, and coal-fired energy.
Climate change was certainly a key priority at the G7 summit in Carbis Bay, southwest England. All members showed interest and enthusiasm on the issue, and especially Britain, which also tried to lay the groundwork for hosting the UN COP26 environmental summit in November, according to Breitbart.
On Sunday, speakers urged G7 leaders to take urgent action to “secure the future of the planet” by stipulating new conservation and emissions targets to curb climate change supposedly; the leaders concluded at a three-day summit that revived Western unity.
Environmentalist and journalist David Attenborough, 95, was one of the speakers at the event who addressed the G7 leaders in defense of the leftist green agenda, pushing for the continued imposition of urgent measures to address alleged climate change.
In his speech, Attenborough warned about the natural world being “greatly diminished,” and drew a supposed correlation between that reality about nature and economic inequality in the world.
“The question science forces us to address specifically in 2021 is whether as a result of these intertwined facts we are on the verge of destabilising the entire planet?” he said.
In this sense, and in the face of environmentalist discourses that promoted panic over a supposed scenario of the collapse of planet earth, the leaders agreed on new goals as an attempt to halt and reverse the loss of biodiversity and reverse climate change.
The agreement includes eliminating as “soon as possible” the use of “continuous coal,” a fuel whose emissions have not been filtered, ending most government support for the fossil fuel sector, and phasing out gasoline and diesel cars.
In their conclusions from this weekend’s summit, G7 leaders are expected to include a commitment to nearly halve their emissions by 2030 relative to 2010.
As with all issues on the left-wing globalist agenda, the one-off speeches tend to sound very good to listeners’ ears. Of course, it is difficult to oppose a person who claims to be committed to the struggle for the natural well-being of the world we live in.
However, questions arise that are difficult to answer: What is the real goal of the movement’s proponents, how would they replace the energies they are trying to eliminate in such a short time, what will be done with the millions of people who live today from the traditional industry they plan to eliminate?
The G7 is also expected to increase its investments in international climate finance, use taxpayers’ money, impose the climate agenda on developing countries, and impose the idea of reversing climate change and supporting sustainable growth.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has used the summit to launch a £500 million fund to help countries, including Ghana, Indonesia, and Pacific island states, tackle unsustainable fishing, protect and restore coastal ecosystems such as mangroves and coral reefs and reduce marine pollution.
The measure would not seem to be bad in principle. Still, one wonders the point of impoverished countries not exploiting their coastlines if the Chinese regime’s fishing boats are literally emptying the ocean of wildlife by setting up veritable floating cities that move out to sea. They are fishing and processing marine wildlife without any restraint or opposition from the dominant countries.
