Climate change is the result of long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. While some of these shifts may occur naturally, human activities have been the primary driver of climate change since the 1800s. The burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and gas, releases heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere, exacerbating the problem.
Contrary to Sultan Al Jaber’s claim at COP28, ample scientific evidence supports the necessity of phasing out fossil fuels to limit global heating to 1.5°C. Existing studies underscore the urgency, emphasising substantial declines in coal, oil, and gas production by 2050.
The Government’s resistance to revealing the risks in their net zero plans, including Rishi Sunak’s private jet controversy, suggests hidden flaws. The upcoming legal battle may force transparency, exposing the truth. Time for climate accountability.
Over 70,000 delegates, including Rishi Sunak, David Cameron, and King Charles, attend COP28 in Dubai, but over 300 private jet journeys raise environmental concerns. The carbon footprint analysis urges sustainable travel choices.
Critics argued that having oil and gas producers lead climate talks raised a conflict of interest, given the industry’s role in carbon emissions. Indeed, the UAE is reportedly planning to increase oil production and has been accused of flaring more gas than reported.
A study suggests that food shortages due to extreme weather events could lead to civil unrest in the UK within 50 years. The country’s vulnerable food system, marked by efficiency over resilience, emphasises the need for plans to address potential disruptions.
This summer saw global tourism rebound to 84% of pre-pandemic levels, raising climate change concerns due to extreme weather events. A proposal for “carbon passports” aims to curb environmental impact by 2040.
Environment Secretary Steve Barclay received a £3,000 donation from climate change sceptic Sir Michael Hintze, raising concerns about Barclay’s stance on environmental issues and potential conflicts of interest, prompting scrutiny of the government’s commitment to environmental goals.
