Document leak reveals nations lobbying to change key climate report – BBC News

Published

on



A huge leak of documents seen by BBC News shows how countries are trying to change a crucial scientific report on how to tackle climate change.

The leak reveals some countries – including Saudi Arabia, Japan and Australia – are asking the UN to play down the need to move rapidly away from fossil fuels.

It also shows some wealthy nations are questioning paying more to poorer states to move to greener technologies.

This “lobbying” raises questions for the key COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, which starts on 31 October.

    I understand India's position. It won't help them because climate change is progressing but I get it. Americans, Europeans and wealthy countries have abused the environment for several centuries and now that we're in a crisis they caused, they want India to stop their progress to pay for the crimes of wealthy countries who didn't practice what they now preach in order to achieve their current wealth. It's a tough one but we will all be wiped out equally. Oh well 🤷‍♀️😂

    The BBC https://youtu.be/BoAAhNYLG8E
    After everything that's happened over the last couple of years, and in light of everything that turned out to be untrue, this science they talk about seems very questionable, very very questionable.

    They never show the harshest winters in living memory though , just highlight floods in cities etc , pretty obvious when towns expand and cities that the water has no where to go and the streets act as natural channels , plus most of this is multi media reportage these events where 10 fold worse in the past only they were not recorded

    Pretty annoying that most people are sheep or drones. They dont do anything. You can tell everyone around you to switch to a more sustainable lifestyle and they dont want to.

    Its like your trying to save someone from there burning house, when you break in to save them you find them pouring gas on the fire.

Fracking, Natural Gas, decreased US CO2 output more than any nation on earth. If CO2 mattered we would have everyone on Nuclear by now with 1/300th the land use and a 30th the resources.

    As a Brazilian, our government doesn't care about climate change, it's all about fast money. It's common knowledge that meat production causes several of our problems. We have all the means to change our economic system to a more sustainable one, and one that at the same time cares more about the wellbeing of the population. But our government doesn't care.

    And in another document obtained, we see evidence of BBC censoring the science that concluded that the BBC is actually a propaganda channel.

  24. @jonadams5547

    January 24, 2024 at 11:41 am

    Instead of saying eating less meat it they could say to raise less cattle for beef consumption. It always seems like the powers that be deflect to the consumers and in the shadows prop up business. Not saying that all cattle farmers should stop now, but why is it always put on the consumer?

    I believe that all this "man made" climate change is 24k pure shite. There is climate change. It's called weather. There have been cycles for eons. In the 70's they were telling us there is a soon coming ice age. We were told in the 90's there were several reports that our way of life would end in 2010, 2015, 2020…………

    Yes, we absolutely need to be good stewards of our planet. Green energy would be a good thing. But this winging on about we're destroying the planet…… A good sized volcano erupting spews more greenhouse gasses than all mankind in a year!!

    If we have to wait for the "documents reaveal" of any issue we're gonna die before anybody takes action. This has been known forever, I dont think anyone is surprised by this and this isnt going to cause any backlash.

    January 24, 2024 at 11:41 am

    Obviously the climate is ramping up, the warmer it gets the more energy can go into storms, so more rain will fall, so start moving to places that are geologically stable and high enough elevation you and yours will not drown or float away.

    At 2:20 when he says those reports are like the Bible I had a laugh.
    Not because those reports are true like the Bible but because they are followed like a religion that is belief based.
    The BBC still just pumping out propaganda. They say so many words without saying anything about the actual science. Just a full on hit piece against people who don't agree with their stance.

    Capitalism’s biggest weakness shows – countries protecting their economic interests by attempting to manipulate the narrative. Fossil fuel companies lied about the impact of carbon emissions for decades, this is no surprise. They don’t care about the people they govern, only their money.

    January 24, 2024 at 11:41 am

    I understand why Australia is against the Coal one and the paying poorer countries because with the government doesn’t want to start losing money and the collapse economy as Australia is relying on its coal export to almost keep the economy stable while also trying to slowing leaning off it and the reason why the government might not want to pay the poorer countries is because they don’t want to become another uk and it is the only country that is slowly paying off it debts , well that is my two bits

US journalist Evan Gershkovich jailed in Russia | BBC News

Published

on



US journalist Evan Gershkovich has been found guilty of spying by a Russian court and sentenced to 16 years in a high-security prison, after a secretive trial labelled a “sham” by his employer, his family and the White House.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reporter was arrested by security services in March 2023 while working as a reporter in the city of Yekaterinburg, about 1,600km (1,000 miles) east of Moscow.

Russia accuses him of working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), accusations that Gershkovich, the WSJ and the US strongly deny.

He’s the first US journalist to be convicted for espionage in Russia since the Cold War ended more than 30 years ago.

UN top court says Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories is illegal | BBC News

Published

on



The UN’s top court has said Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories is against international law, in a landmark opinion.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said Israel should stop settlement activity in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and end its “illegal” occupation of those areas as soon as possible.

The court’s advisory opinion is not legally binding but still carries significant political weight. It marks the first time the ICJ has delivered a position on the legality of the 57-year occupation.

The ICJ, based at The Hague in the Netherlands, has been examining the issue since the beginning of last year, at the request of the UN General Assembly.

Colombian naval officials monitoring a sunken Spanish ship laden with treasure have discovered two other historical shipwrecks nearby, President Iván Duque has announced.

The San José galleon was sunk by the British in 1708 near Colombia’s Caribbean port of Cartagena.

The wreckage was located in 2015.

It has been described as the holy grail of shipwrecks, as the ship was carrying one of the largest amounts of valuables ever to have been lost at sea.
