Campaigners criticize G7 leaders for failure to address key concerns amid a dramatic shift in global health and well being.
Global average temperatures continue to rise and unprecedented weather causing patterns of meteorological disruption made more likely by climate breakdown are wreaking havoc across the world.
NASA climate scientist Peter Kalmus said in a tweet: “This is such b******t. End coal and all new fossil fuel infrastructure now, quickly phase out the rest on a set schedule.”
Global average temperatures now sit at 1.02 Celsius and are expected to climb further as the world reopens and commercial flights resume.
Climate campaigner Greta Thunberg lambasted the 7 nations, taking aim at their failure to avoid the coming climate crisis as they watched emissions emitting aircraft circulate above the Cornish county.
“The climate and ecological crisis is rapidly escalating. G7 spends fantasy amounts on fossil fuels as CO2 emissions are forecast for 2nd biggest annual rise ever. This calls for steak-and-lobster-BBQ-celebration while jet planes perform aerobatics in the sky above the G7 resort!”
G7 leaders broke promises on nursing the climate back to health and Boris Johnson, retained a trust deficit he deserves. Justin Trudeau in particular, who nationalized gas giant Kinder Morgan failed to reverse his tainted image by running with whatever Joe Biden and other European Union leaders Chancellor Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron decided.
This lack of progress will leave many asking what will happen now? And what is the point of the Paris Climate Accords, if one of the world’s largest economic groups fail heed the warning signs of extreme heat, flooding, disease and famine already plaguing the world on a mass scale. As reported by us, increased conflict is likely to occur as global food shortages continue and divisions remain and intensify.
Not only did the climate crisis fail to land any hard commitments, but human rights also suffered a huge blow. Vaccine donations between the seven nations were pledged at only 1 billion, which is set to only lengthen the time we’re at odds with Covid-19.
Regarding China, Uyhgur Muslims failed to land any mention whatsoever. Instead, leaders opted to use the words “state-sponsored forced labor of vulnerable groups and minorities and supply chains”. Though the world will continue to trade with the country, contradicting opposition to such practices.
The White House said: “The US and our G7 partners remain deeply concerned by the use of all forms of forced labor in global supply chains, including state-sponsored forced labor of vulnerable groups and minorities and supply chains of the agricultural, solar, and garment sectors – the main supply chains of concern in Xinjiang.”
Ultimately, the G7 summit was a failure like many before, proving that the Paris Climate Accords simply paid lip service to veil activities of a now emboldened oil and gas multinational framework executive managed by the world’s most “advanced economies”.
