I don't get the logic. Motorcades. Private jets. Entourage after entourage. All in the name of TALKING about reducing CO2 levels. 

Maybe it's these people that should be made to "work from home". In a era where we all live next to each other digitally why is there a need to have this mass junket?

Is it not a fillip for Ms Sturgeon to be hosting this?

or shall we blame it all on the Buffoon from down south?

 

politicians….  Eh?   :rolleyes:

In this instance. I don't blame either and both. And all the other attendees pretending it's for the good of the planet. It could turn out that only the Chinese and Russian leaders are being honest.

I suppose that would be a first.

They tried that at some other large conference involving many nations. The time zone differences caused significant problems apparently.

Does COP26 really need 25,000 people there? They will generate a lot of CO2, so why can't many elements be online? - David, Birmingham

The pandemic might be seen as the perfect moment for the UN to use technology for negotiations, and it was attempted during a preparatory meeting for COP in June, which ran for three weeks.

Unfortunately, it didn't go well - time-zone and technology challenges made it almost impossible for countries with limited resources, progress was limited and decisions were put off.

As a result, many developing nations have insisted on having an in-person COP. They feel that it is far easier for their voices to be ignored on a dodgy Zoom connection.

They also bring a lived experience of climate change that it is critical for rich countries to hear first-hand.

There's some evidence that this works. In 2015, the presence of island states and vulnerable nations was key to securing the commitment to limit temperature changes to 1.5C in the Paris Agreement.

Not quite sure why knickers are getting in a twist about this.

ANY mass gathering could be seen as questionable.

No more concerts/sporting events etc?

Gies piece.

With Chinese and Russian delegations not attending the financial boost will be significantly reduced! Let’s hope those two nations don’t start behaving like rogue states or Bond villains while all the other nations high heid yins are in one place.

Russia is attending , their private govt aircraft are parked at Edinburgh !
