GLASGOW SCOTLAND COP 26 2020
PLEASE USE OUR A-Z INDEX TO NAVIGATE THIS SITE
OUT 26 - The Scottish Event Campus is proud to be the host venue and campus for The UN Climate Change Conference COP26 from the 9th – 20th November 2020. This is a globally significant event as the world comes together to address climate
change - and the bigger bullies duck and dive to avoid change,
more like adapting their investments to embrace global
warming, regardless of human sacrifice and widespread animal extinctions.
The Get Ready Glasgow business and public information campaign will be launched in Spring 2020, providing helpful information on what to expect, and the opportunities presented to Glasgow as the host city. Further information will be published as soon as it is available. For enquiries relating to city operations and delivery of council services in the lead up to and during COP26, please contact: GetReadyGlasgow@glasgow.gov.uk.
VOICE 8 JANUARY 2020
I am opposed to carbon markets. The idea that one party can pay compensation to another for damaging the planet is risible. There is only one way of dealing with
climate change and it’s not playing financial games but applying technology. Financialising
climate change may sound like a good idea to the financial community because they will undoubtedly make money, but I wouldn’t trust them to achieve anything positive.
Making policy and setting targets is the easy bit. The difficult bit is delivering on them and it’s especially hard for a devolved government with only limited powers that it can use particularly when it comes to fiscal and other financial levers.
The consequences to the slow movers like the UK and Scotland can be economically harmful.
Cummins, the US company renowned for its diesel engines has decided to close its engine factory in Cumbernauld in Scotland, making around 130 people redundant.
WIPE OUT - Competition for water in Australia is so intense that they are shooting camels. What next? Shoot the kangaroos and koala bears, and then lets zero in on the indigenous human population - as things really get serious?
However, what people also need to know but probably don’t is that Cummins recently bought the Canadian
hydrogen fuel cell and electrolyser company Hydrogenics. That’s the same company that provided the Aberdeen hydrogen bus refueller.
The Cummins plan is to use Hydrogenics’ technology to transition away from
diesel to hydrogen and – presumably – eventually use it on all or most of their power applications.
Lord Deben, chair of the CCC, says Scotland’s Net
Zero target is “world-leading”, but now the country needed to “walk the talk”.
ENERGY NEWS LIVE SEPTEMBER 2019 - UK’s COP26 President Claire Perry not to seek re-election

2/2: I have also been clear that I remain in full support of our PM and his brave Brexit strategy as I can see no alternative if we want to honour the Referendum result. I look forward to working closely with him in my role as President of the UN Climate COP in 2020.

The news follows Universities Minister Jo Johnson, the prime minister’s brother, announcing he was stepping down because he was “torn between family loyalty and the national interest”.

TALK IS CHEAP - COP OUT 25 was another failure in 2019. We need new legislation to outlaw anti earth profiteering. We need the PLANET EARTH ACT 2020, if we are to prevent further rape of our blue paradise.

COP THAT - The United Nations Climate Change Conferences are yearly conferences held in the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). They serve as the formal meeting of the UNFCCC Parties (Conference of the Parties, COP) to assess progress in dealing with climate change, and beginning in the mid-1990s, to negotiate the Kyoto Protocol to establish legally binding obligations for developed countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. From 2005 the Conferences have also served as the "Conference of the Parties Serving as the Meeting of Parties to the Kyoto Protocol" (CMP); also parties to the Convention that are not parties to the Protocol can participate in Protocol-related meetings as observers. From 2011 the meetings have also been used to negotiate the Paris Agreement as part of the Durban platform activities until its conclusion in 2015, which created a general path towards climate action. The first UN Climate Change Conference was held in 1995 in Berlin.
