Climate Response Shameful
Recent decisions by the governments of Australia, Japan and Canada to downgrade their efforts over climate change is more than disappointing, especially as it may lead to others following.
Rather than acting as a wake up call, Japan has announced it will backtrack on its pledge to reduce its emission cuts from 25% to 3.8% by 2020, Australia signalled it may weaken its targets and is repealing domestic carbon laws and Canada has pulled out of the Kyoto accord to reduce their annual CO2 emissions.
The Disaster Emergencies Committee, presently coordinating British aid efforts in the Philippines warned that the disaster offers a glimpse of the future if urgent action is not taken and other Aid Agencies said ministers must act urgently because climate change is likely to make such extreme weather events more common in the future, putting millions more lives at risk.
Shamefully, the people who could have the biggest impact are not paying attention or putting more effort into attempting to blacken the name of the scientific community who study these things as more and more extreme weather events occur and kill thousands and thousands before our very eyes.
Nobody is doing anything about it apart from the ill-informed useful idiots repeating parrot fashion the lies from those with the most to lose or more dangerously the moronic leaders like those in Canada, Japan and Australia who selfishly just don't care how many more victims of climate change there are.
It does make you wonder just what it will take, how much death and destruction caused by climate change, before the people who can make a change put the planet and it's population first.
