Industrialisation Induced Climate Chaos
The Developed World’s consumption patterns account for around 90% of greenhouse gases emitted since the Industrial Revolution. The UN IPCC report just published pre-COP26 says we are even closer to a climate emergency than previously thought and turning this around could take centuries!
Climate Disasters Proliferate
This year’s hugely destructive droughts, deluges, floods and fires across the World are already telling us we do not have that time. Climate related disasters are global - they do not discriminate on the basis of nationality or respect borders.
Emerging Markets Fuel Global Growth
Richer countries are now racing to replace fossil fuels with renewables in the quest for GHG reduction targets. Poorer countries do not have the resources to keep up with that race, much as many are trying. This too when they also have legitimate aspirations for economic growth from their growing populations
COP26 Will Not Stop Consumption Fuelled Carbon Emissions
Your Pension Could Save The World
To solve this global problem will require a universal solution too. The huge stock of wealth in richer countries could be tapped to redress the balance
Not just Governments but businesses, pensions, foundations and endowments could commit just 1% of their funds to invest in potential climate solutions for the developing world.
We call it the ‘SaveMyWorld’ bucket and you can get involved…do not let COP26 become ‘COP out 26’.
