NUMNUT VOCABULARY EXAMPLES:  collaborative leadership, anchored in mutilateralism, political will, ambition, profound opportunity.

  1. To combat the COVID-19 pandemic and the existential threat of climate disruption, the only credible response is brave, visionary and collaborative leadership anchored in mutilateralism.
  2. COVID19 exposed the fragility of our societies to global shocks such as the climate crisis. As we recover, we must build a better future for all. Together, we can protect our planet, improve health, reduce inequality & re-energize struggling economies. And against the backdrop of threatened lives, crippled businesses and damaged economies, our Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are under threat. The highest cost is the cost of doing nothing underscoring the need to urgently strengthen resilience and cut greenhouse gas emissions to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels and mitigate climate change.
  3. But we still lack the necessary political will and ambition on mitigation, adaptation, and finance. On mitigation, all countries must commit to carbon neutrality by 2050. And developing countries – least responsible for climate change but most vulnerable to its impacts – need resilience-building support. This requires adequate financing, beginning with a promised $100 billion dollars a year for mitigation and adaptation efforts.
  4. In planning the coronavirus pandemic recovery, there is a profound opportunity to steer the world on a path that tackles climate change, protects the environment, reverses biodiversity loss and ensures the long-term health and security of humankind. By making the transition to low-carbon, climate-resilient growth, we can create a world that is clean, green, safe, just and more prosperous for all. There are six different climate actions that countries can take to shape the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
  5. Like the coronavirus, greenhouse gases also respect no boundaries. Isolation is a trap in which no country can succeed alone. We already have a common framework for action – the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change.
  6. 121 countries have already committed to carbon neutrality by 2050. I ask all countries to prepare enhanced national climate action plans, or Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Ww need six actions for a climate positive recovery from the corona virus pandemic. They are
  7. 1. Deliver new jobs and businesses with a transition to a green economy while accelerating decarbonization of all aspects of the economy. 2. Use taxation to create green jobs and inclusive growth when rescuing businesses. 3. Shift economies from grey to green, with using public financing that makes societies more resilient. 4. Invest public funds in the future, to projects that help the environment and the climate. 5. Consider risks and opportunities for your own economy, as the global financial system works to shape policy and infrastructure. 6. Work together as an international community to combat COVID-19 and climate change.
  8. I encourage the European Union to continue showing global leadership by presenting, by the end of the year, a Nationally Determined Contribution in line with its commitment to become the first climate neutral continent by 2050.
  9. The key to tackling the climate crisis is the big emitters. The world’s 20 leading economies collectively account for more than 80 per cent of global emissions and over 85 per cent of the global economy. All of them must commit to carbon neutrality by 2050. Without the contribution of the big emitters, all our efforts risk to be doomed.
  10. Let us use the pandemic recovery to provide a foundation for a safe, healthy, inclusive and more resilient world for all people.

 

 

 

TRANSLATION

(1)  Hello, this is your unelected and unaccountable planetary leader speaking. I take care of all the little people all over the planet and make sure that the elected and accountable leaders of all those cute little nation states that I am responsible for are doing a good job and running their countries the way I want them run for the sake of the planet.

(2)  Sadly, these elected and accountable national leaders care only about their political power and only about the welfare of their stupid little countries and they don’t think about the planet at all because they are too busy thinking about their national welfare and their economy and all those money hungry capitalists that they need to keep  the economy strong. Nobody cares about the planet or the climate. 

(3)  Since 2016, I have been telling these good for nothing national leaders and their money hungry capitalists that I am the leader of the planet and they must pay attention to what I want them to do for the sake of the planet and the climate. I have been telling them that they must take climate action to save the planet from climate change but they haven’t been paying attention to me, their unelected and unaccountable planetary leader and caretaker of nature. They are too proud of their power and wealth and their industrial economy and all those airliners and cars and computers and such and the money being raked in by those money hungry capitalists so they can pay me and all my fellow unaccountable UN bureaucrats our enormous salaries (plus expenses and benefits you won’t believe). 

(4)  So I had to bide my time until the planet could create an opportunity for me to save the planet from these uncaring elected and accountable governments. And by the year 2020 the planet had created just such an opportunity for me to save the planet. It sent a Biblical plague upon the uncaring national leaders, the uncaring capitalists, and the climate deniers throughout the length and breadth of the planet. The plague killed their capitalism that had stood in the way and showed them what a planetary crisis looks like and what it feels like so that they would pay more attention to the climate disruption that lies ahead for us if they don’t take climate action the way I had told them to do. 

(5) The plague scared them and for the first time they began to comprehend what a planetary emergency like the climate disruption looks like and feels like and what it would do to their oh so beloved industrial economy and capitalism wealth. The plague had also created just the kind of emission reduction and pollution reduction that we have been demanding all these years. These things finally gave me, their planetary leader, an opportunity to save the planet from climate disruption. And so the plague will be lifted and climate action will be taken and the climate disruption will not be allowed to happen and most of all, the planet will be saved. 

 

POSTSCRIPT: COVID-19 HAS ENVIRONMENTAL DOWNSIDES TOO

Every year, hundreds of millions of trees are planted across British Columbia — and 2020 was going to be a record-setting season. Plans were in motion to plant 310 million trees, roughly 60 million more than usual. BUT . . . as with so many other activities, COVID-19 has upended this program and created an ecological disaster.   SOURCE: [LINK]

I discovered the cure to Covid-19 and Global Warming: don’t read the New York Times, Washington Post or The Guardian and don’t watch CNN, MSNBC or any of th3 other mainstream broadcasters.

this is the cure, mark.
fully agree.
thank you.
the disease is the propaganda machine
the cure is to not listen to it
