COP28: A woke confederation of grifters, chancers and shysters

-

AS INFLATION soars and the temperature plummets, it is unpalatable to think of the unelected scoundrels and hypocrites in Dubai conspiring to make you poorer and colder. An email sent to TCW Defending Freedom from an outfit called University College London Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose gives an insight into the nature of the unelected parasites who are taking it upon themselves to organise your future.

Part of the Institute’s mission is to ‘shape an economy-wide transformation that puts ambitious climate targets at the centre of how we design our economies and finance’.

To help them do this they are ‘kicking off COP28’s Finance and Gender Dayduring which . . . a panel will dig into how we move beyond reactively filling financing gaps, to proactively directing finance that is patient, long-term, and mission oriented and with progressive conditionalities attached (on business so they walk the talk of climate) to direct investment with an inclusive and green direction’. In other words you will be denied capital if you are insufficiently woke and disagree with the climate cultists.

The Institute’s website gives links to an interconnected web of organisations who feed off your taxes to promote self-serving policies.

The UCL IIPP founding director Mariana Mazzucato is also a co-chair of an organisation called The Global Commission on the Economics of Water. They are coming for your water: ‘Unchecked, the global water crisis will endanger all the Sustainable Development Goals, making them virtually impossible to achieve. It will imperil food and health security, exacerbate poverty, and peace within and between nations. It will disproportionately affect women, vulnerable and marginalised groups among indigenous communities, youth, farmers, workers and small and medium-sized businesses.’

In her spare time, marvellous Mazzucato manages to chair the World Health Organization’s Council on the Economics of Health for All, is a member of the Scottish Government’s Council of Economic Advisers (something I wouldn’t admit to), the South African President’s Economic Advisory Council and the United Nations High-Level Advisory Board on Economic and Social Affairs. Her Air Miles must be impressive, not to mention her carbon footprint.

The UCL IIPP boasts that it is working closely with policymakers and business partners from around the world to ‘explore public value driven innovation’.

Partners include the Mission Oriented Innovation Network (MOIN), a body supported by the Rockefeller Foundation (Club of Rome and Tavistock Institute of Human Relations co-founder) and the EU’s EIT Climate-Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC). The MOIN is working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon, climate-resilient society. The EIT Climate-KIC is a part of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology which has vast resources to spend to ‘fight climate change and other massive societal challenges’. The other challenges include agriculture and digitisation, in other words controlling what you eat and what you do. 

Digging deeper, more bloodsuckers emerge: ‘The UCL Centre for Climate Change and Sustainability Education (CCCSE) and IIPP coordinated a workshop on 2nd November to support the UK’s response to the Glasgow work programme on Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) agreed at COP26, and the four-year ACE Action plan’. ACE is a particularly disgusting organisation that boasts of its mission to propagandise young people with climate garbage. 

ACE has an array of partner organisations including NOAA, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration which has been accused of manipulating temperature data.

Another drain on public funds is the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology-sponsored Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). They too are ‘establishing a network of innovators so powerful its ideas will change the world’. Initiatives that you are funding include ‘Innovate UK’s Net Zero Living Programme . . . a £60million, three-year programme that aims to help places and businesses across the UK to accelerate the delivery of the transition to net zero’, and ‘data-driven innovations in cities to deliver positive impact in key urban issues, themes are likely to be around solutions in Mobility Innovation, Disaster Management, Net-Zero Energy Optimisation and Data-centric Innovation’ . . . aka components of 15-minute cities.

No doubt amongst the 70,000 plus attendees at COP28 there will be hundreds of organisations like UKRI, IIPP, EIT-KIC, MOIN, ACE, NOAA, GCEW, WWF, FOE, each giving shelter to dozens of shameless grifters, shysters and chancers. Under a cloak of virtue these self-righteous tuppenny messiahs are diligently planning new ways to make your future colder, poorer and more miserable.
