COP26: Will Glasgow Save The Planet?

COP26: Will Glasgow Save The Planet?

Spiked Online reports the Insulate Britain protests in London, where idiot “protesters” have been blocking roads…

The tabloids have had a field day with the revelation that an Insulate Britain activist is married to a director of Transport for London (TfL). Cathy Eastburn of Insulate Britain has been busy trying to bring transport to a standstill. She has been arrested four times for acts such as blocking roads and gluing her hands to a train. Meanwhile, her husband, Benedict Plowden, is in charge of ‘getting London moving after the pandemic’.. Read more

My “climate denial” is a matter of public record.  Obviously, the climate is changing – it’s all over the place – but it’s not my fault! That I deny, absolutely.  Yet, people are genuinely frightened – if you’re not terrified at the thought of becoming Covid-infected, the climate propaganda will get you.

My home city of Glasgow is about to be turned upside down, with roads closed for days on end, and our daily lives messed up, because of this nonsense. I’d bet my lottery winnings (when they come) on this latest Conference of the Parties (COP) not making a blind bit of difference to the pretend climate emergency. What do you think?

    Glasgow definitely won’t save the planet, LOL!

    The very language of “salvation” makes me think of religion and our Divine Saviour, so what is this green movement, is it really a religion?

    The Chinese President is unlikely to come in person, so the biggest polluter of all isn’t interested in saving the planet. He wants to dominate it!

    The biggest concern is that Pope Francis is supporting the idea that humans, not God, are in charge of saving the planet. It’s a load of tosh, TBH.

      I agree – Glasgow won’t save the planet, neither will Edinburgh, London or even Paris, LOL!

      How easily people fall for this sort of craze just amazes me.

    I think that Boris and all our leaders have swallowed the whole climate change scam hook, line and sinker – I don’t recall he ever had a great interest in the subject until he met and married Carrie Simmonds who is a known eco-zealot. Who is running the country – him or her? It would be nice to know. But it’s all part of the Great Reset. I also find it amusing that COP26 is being held at Glasgow, which is one of the UK’s most polluted cities. https://www.rehis.com/story/glasgow-among-uk's-most-polluted-town-and-cities-uk Now it will be made even worse by all the (not so) great and (not so) good jetting in or driving in with their cavalcades, causing more pollution. But then it’s the plebs like us who will suffer (through stealth taxes) because of this nonsense, not the likes of the types attending COP26

      westminsterfly,

      I think Carrie is at the helm. Boris doesn’t have the kind of nature that takes anything much very seriously. He weighs up what is likely to advance him to the next point in his career. Maybe he’s gone as far as he wants to in politics so pleasing Carrie and keeping in with the in-crowd is all that concerns him now.

      I didn’t know Glasgow was one of the UK’s most polluted cities – that’s a hoot!

      I do agree about the taxes – it’s a true saying – follow the money. It’s all about money and power, nothing to do with cleaner air and the rest. But it’s very serious in that it is causing young people to worry themselves sick – that’s the biggest scandal of all and to think a pope is helping stoke the fear. He’s a disgrace.

    What gets me about this whole business (and it is a business as well as a pagan religious ideology) is that it is going to hit the poor the hardest. Here’s a report showing how it will impact us financially.
    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/boris-johnson-insists-his-plans-to-cut-carbon-will-not-be-enforced-by-the-boiler-police/ar-AAPH5cS?ocid=msedgntp

    It angers me, not just due to the cost, but it is another way of removing our freedoms. I want to decide how to heat my home, I don’t want the government to tell me. I am not sure if these new boilers/pumps will be mandatory but I suspect they will be.

    What do I think about COP26 and saving the planet? I think it is a load of balderdash!

        WF,

        Thanks for that – disgraceful. I’ve made the same determination on this green madness that I’ve made about Covid restrictions – I’m not co-operating at all.

        Months ago, I received an email from my energy provider saying I MUST switch to a smart meter by x date… I replied immediately to say I would – under NO circumstances – switch to a smart meter. I’d sooner do without gas and electricity, so please offer other options. Not heard back.

        2 sinister developments lately.

        Recently the letters from gas /electric suppliers badgering us to have a smart meter have added that older meters may be “unsafe”.
        Every time they want us to accept some new abomination they say its “in the interests of safety”.

        Then recently the idea was mooted of threatening householders in Cambridgeshire with the authorities breaking into their homes if they refused to partake in some crazy new Green Blobbery pilot scheme re hydrogen. This was slipped out in a (paywalled) Telegraph article. The thin end of the wedge?

        Do you see where things are going here? Are they intending to going to barge into our homes to install smart meters?

      Josephine. You can bet your last lump of Coal that whatever Wee Nic and Co bring out regarding regulations they will Tie them into House Insurance. This of course is already coming into place in February 2022 where Multiple Smoke Alarms and Gas Detectors will have to be installed in Private Homes otherwise no Home Insurance.
      As I said on another Post , I have a Council House . Downstairs their are 3 Smoke Heat Detectors within a 6Ft Radius. Upstairs their are 3 Smoke Heat Carbon Footprint , o sorry Typo
      I meant Carbon Monoxide Detectors again all within 4Ft of each other . They are all hard wired in series which means of course if 1 goes off the 6 go off . Anyone getting these installed will be out a right few Bob, at a time when already people are finding the going very Hard . To say that these smoke Detectors are OTT is an understatement. In fact a Quarter of a Mile from me is an Enclosed Housing Complex ,where these Detectors are directly tied into the Local Fire Station.
      Practically Every Alternate Night there are 2 Fire Brigade Trucks ,pass by my House to attend a Detector going off .

      One of the Men who lives there ,said to me He was sick of the Fire Brigade coming to His House and asked for the Detectors to be moved . There is of course a Distance Regulation Regarding such . But He said to me that one of The Heat Detectors is practically above His Cooker.
      Still if their is a way to waste Money in these Days ,then we can be sure that it will be found.

        I’m not installing any of these gadgets. The threat is, the house won’t sell blah blah, but by the time it is due to sell, the regulations will have changed yet again, and anyway, where I hope against hope to be living by that time, I won’t really give a toss… 😀 If I make it into Purgatory, I’ll be quite warm enough, and no number of fire engines will be of any use 😀

    There’s so much rubbish talked about this subject so I am always glad to take refuge here where I’ll read the other side!

    I searched for something useful to contribute here and I found Taylor Marshall has a very interesting take – that global dictatorship is coming through this obsession with ecology. I recommend watching this – it’s only around 30 minutes and very informative.

      Thank you for posting that video… I’d actually prepared it to use as the kickstart to this thread but decided to feature my home town instead of Archbishop Vigano! What an admission, as opposed to an emission… 😀

      It is certainly 30 minutes well spent. Not actually telling us anything we don’t already know, but, as Sacred Scripture teaches there really isn’t anything new under the sun…(Ecclesiastes 1:10)

        I think that is from the same letter that is in the Taylor Marshall video posted by Michaela. It’s really good, very clear and outspoken. If only there were a few more Archbishop Viganos. It was startling to hear him say “they have managed to make us ashamed of the victory of Lepanto.” Well, it must make it difficult for Francis to sign scandalous agreements with the Muslim leaders when they know about Lepanto, I suppose.

    ED am really looking forward to some of the B.S. that will be talked by this Mob . I suppose 10 Homes + Private Jet ,Al Gore will be the Biggest One of them all, after all Horror Bergoglio isn’t coming. It’s really strange to me that the Chinese won’t be attending this Little Shindig. Maybe it’s because their too Humble or maybe it’s because they cause 40 % of the Pollution already in The World , with another 600 Super Coal Fired Power Stations being built.
    Their is no way that the Chinese are going to depend on Gusts of Wind to keep their Factories going 365 Days a Year .

    Sorry if this sounds a Bit Crude but does anyone know if the Cruise Ships will be Dumping the 25.000 Attendees Excrement into The Clyde. I mean that will cause Some Stink, even in November. Or will they store it in Super Tankers and Sell it as Manure . I mean these are Bursting Questions which will surely Have to be answered. Or is that question just a Pea in The Poke . Also if Wee Pain in The Rear Greta is going to come down the Clyde into Glasgow in Her Super Duper Eco Friendly Yacht. Will She get more than a Nosy . So to speak.

    As for Insulating Britain. Av just Had my Council House Insulated by Six Inches of Polystyrene. Now as a Layman I know not if it will do any good or not and Here’s Why . Our Council Home Windows are much to Wide and Even being double Glazed they let out too much Heat .
    In simple Terms , it’s a Bit like when Nicola Sturgeon Attends this as A Top Kiddy .
    Putting on a Fur Coat ,but forgetting to put on Her Woolly underwear First. Am sure you get the Gist.

They are all Pagans and Tree Huggers . God is in Charge of The Earth that has been seen countless times by Earthquakes and Volcanoes . I mean it’s really getting Now to the Ridiculous Stage . People have to stop watching that Propaganda Box in The Corner and now ask Why . Why are these Private Jet ,Private Yacht Buffoons telling us what to do .

    I would also like to know the Real Percentage of the 25.000 coming to this Pantomime that have taken the Billy Goat Gates Poison. As for their Re Cycled Clothes Gimmick it’s really galling for us Peasants in The West of Scotland to see some of the real poverty going around.
    Poverty not just in the Material Sense ,but also in the Spiritual Sense.
    Just as an afterthought. Could Bergoglio not have come to this Nonsense and Held His next Sinnod Simultaneously. A bit like Killing 2 Birds with the One Stone.

        It’s absolutely the case that most people actually prefer being told what to think and, I would add, what to do. That’s why the Westminster Parliament got away with extending the Coronavirus “emergency” law for another six months and will keep getting away with extending them for years to come. We’re in this for the long haul, I’m afraid.

    Below, latest update about Janice from her husband – no mention of the twins, so we can assume that they are making good progress, too.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanking you all for your prayers. Janice is now breathing on her own and making good progress (though still on the ventilator). We are very grateful that she’s now at this point.

    The recovery will be a long, long road for her. This virus has brought a healthy 35 year old with only slight asthma (for which she takes minimal medication) to the brink of death. It has almost cost me my wife and two youngest children. Her lungs are now very weak and will require lots of time to recover. Please do not underestimate how brutal Covid-19 can be.

    Thank you all for your prayers. I doubt there will be any need for any further update but ask that the prayers continue.

    Never mind ‘global warming’ – there could soon be global panic 😮

    Something really weird is going on re earthquakes around the volcano on La Palma. There is nothing unusual about earthquakes in an active volcano area, but what is unique about La Palma is that they are forming a regular grid pattern – like they are ‘man-made’

    Check out the earthquakes map on this web-site, zoom right in to the island and you’ll see how the red dots line up. This is extremely odd, these quakes should appear completely randomly as they do elsewhere e.g. Greece. Also, they are happening repeatedly in the same places with almost pin-point accuracy

    https://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/Map/gmap.php

    So what’s going on here? Surely manipulation – but who is engineering this, how – and why? If a huge chunk of the island land mass slips into the ocean, it will likely cause a tsunami that could wipe out millions on the U.S. east coast 😱

    I had wondered if this was for real when I first became aware of it. But we need to ask why there’s nothing about it on the media. If it’s ….’hee-haw, har har – millions conned by spoof earthquakes website’… well let’s hear it. One way or the other, they OUGHT to be talking about it.

      ‘Climate change’ is as big a scam as Covid-19, many having been suckered by it simply because it’s in all our faces and rammed down our throats 24-7

      The ‘New World Order’ psychos have already decided how they’re going to ‘tackle’ it. This has been in the planning for decades – and will make Hitler’s ‘final solution’ seem like a picnic

      The big push to ‘vaccinate’ 7 billion people against a non-existent ‘deadly plague’ has only one purpose – a massive cull of the world’s human population, within the next few years

    Well, how about THIS, from the Second Reading on the Second Sunday of Advent, Year B? Do girnie Greta and her finger-wagging fellow-travellers really believe any of it can be prevented?

    …..’But of this one thing be not ignorant, my beloved, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord delayeth not His promise, as some imagine, but dealeth patiently for your sake, not willing that any should perish, but that all should return to penance. But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence, and the elements shall be melted with heat, and the earth and the works which are in it, shall be burnt up

    Seeing then that all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be in holy conversation and godliness? Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat? But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to His promises, in which justice dwelleth. Wherefore, dearly beloved, waiting for these things, be diligent that you may be found before Him unspotted and blameless in peace’ … The Word of the Lord

    ‘Les grandes fromages’ at the COP26 will be staying at the plush Gleneagles Hotel. 20 Tesla cars (costing £100K each) have been bought to shuttle them the 75km back & forth. Gleneagles has only ONE Tesla charging station, so Malcolm Plant Hire were contracted to supply diesel generators to recharge these Teslas overnight!

        Nicky,

        I think the M8 will be OK if you’re travelling in from the north side of the city, but not from the south. My guess is based on the fact that prior to lockdown there were always daft marathons and such like held on Sundays and it was those seeking access to the Argyle Street/Clyde Street end of town who suffered the inconvenience. Access to the top of the town (Sauchiehall Street area) was usually OK, my people tell me 😀

        Not sure if that helps but I’m only working part-time for the traffic division – most of the time I’m following the weather forecast… That’s one thankless task because if you say there’s 50% chance of snow, folks take to wearing only one boot. Honestly, you can’t win…

    A typical package generator set actually WASTES some two-thirds of the heat produced by its fuel combustion. This heat gets dissipated into the atmosphere

    Then there’s the diesel exhaust fumes, drifting onto the nearby woodlands … And all this in aid of ‘the last chance to save the planet’

    Farcical!
