COP26: Document leak reveals nations lobbying to change key climate report

Source: BBC

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 Saudi Arabia, Japan and Australia are among countries 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 COP26 climate summit in November.

3. The Koch brothers, oil cartels and fossil fuel billionaires

Aren't done extracting your wealth and dumping their waste into our air.

When they are finished they'll let you know. Then they'll let us have an earth that's a livable temperature. Until then....we all get to suffer while the filthy rich destroy everything for a profit.

Do you think the oil industry willingly quit massacring whales to switch to a less destructive energy form?

If you can stop any of those, you are good. There will be a peak someday, and an aftermath.
