Hi council bin man. Thanks for the article, you must have a lot of time on your hands at the moment.

A few points to cover.

"why is China’s president Xi not there"

Because they know they'd get beat. China has always been shiiite at football so doesn't matter what Xi they send over.

"Got no issue with deforestation, good idea, but will it only decelerate the rate the tropics and jungles disappear"

Likely to accelerate it mate

Here to help

Think the UK committed to planting 125m trees by 2025...something like that.

They will have to import them...with a good chance they will kill millions of the native trees we have here.

Where are they coming from?
Who is going to plant them.

And btw, having spent millions of wind power we've just discovered that winds have fallen globally every year for the past 30 years. There's hardly any now and the decline is probably irreversible.

We're actually totally facked.

Global leaders know that it's such an important and emotive topic that they can't possibly commit to anything of substance for fear of reprisals at the polls when they fail. Either that or they'll "commit" to something so far out in the future that it's someone else's problem.

"China vomit to net zero emissions by 2060"

To be fair that would fertilise the soil and help trees grow. Not a bad idea from China there.

I feel for todays kids, they'll bear the brunt of this. the big corporations exploiting fossil fuels are actively looking at dredging the sea bed for even more minerals which releases the many millions of tons of co2.

People are planting so many trees there is a tree shortage. Wrong type wrong places, mostly. Said before we can probably solve all this by the RoW clubbing together and buying Brazil, rehoming it’s residents and leaving the whole place empty to just grow.

Trees can be grafted. I do it as part of my job. So we need millions of rootstock and thousands of people to graft them! Not likely wait her. Agree we can’t be importing trees, it’s not the answer. Look at our native ash, either dead or dying. Every single one.

Maybe we can just plant trees on all the trees empty pasture land once we’ve extinct bovine.

Cheers for that. What I suspected.

Agree they'll need to think about the species and planting ground. Didn't the government offer up a grant to land owners in the 90's to plant trees? Isnt that why most of our countryside is now conifer? as that was the cheapest thing to plant.

I think we will end up doing a pledge to fund planting 10,000 trees in some other developing country as a gesture to offset rather than a fix.

I really hope I'm wrong. If China, India and the US play hard ball, there's really no way this can improve anything. The people who can effect the most change are the scientists and researchers looking at developing new technologies and processes. Need to set a mission statement to make sure that development is in the right technology.

This is supposed to be the biggest crisis we have ever faced, and might affect future generations and possible climate outcomes.
So why is China’s president Xi not there? India has committed to achieving net zero by 2070, 20 years after targets set by the summit.
China vomit to net zero emissions by 2060. Two big polluters decide to underachieve.
PM of the UK called for an end to burning coal. And a phasing out of petrol cars and measures to reverse deforestation.
I don’t agree with what PM Johnston’s said, electric cars look a long way off replacing petrol engines, and technology could still make coal power cleaner. Got no issue with deforestation, good idea, but will it only decelerate the rate the tropics and jungles disappear or will it involve replacing what’s been lost? Big difference IMO
Why not commit to an area to be replaced or protected? Commit to reducing the demand for lumber. Too few specifics being spoken about, 2030 could come without any progress.

A “ mission statement” how very corporate!
If you’ve got that much “spare time” you could always go and glue yourself to a road!

Scheite gag I posted elsewhere but Griff was at the climate protests - someone told him there was a lassie that looked 12 but was actually 18.

I’m reasonably sure he was referring to ‘the people who can effect change’.
But then I can read. You do you.

Hate when they lie about their age. Like when they say they’re 149, but really they’re 9.

Yes. You do you. It’s one of those combinations of words they have nowadays.
No reading comprehension *and* a shiite vocabulary. Really, thanks for joining in. What a treat for the rest of us.

Seen one hell of a precision of cars, vans and range rovers with police cars on the m8 earlier.

Criminal’s paradise at the moment with all the police tied up for the animals more equal than us
