My climate plan will cut gassers by 98%


THE 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP26), the United Nations climate change summit, will be held in Glasgow on November 9-19, 2020.

This will be the 26th year of hot air, broken promises, increasing global emissions and delegates enjoying lavish hospitality. 

This poses the question: ‘What have these yearly gatherings achieved?’  

Normally there are 30,000 attendees, so let’s look at projected Glasgow numbers. Glasgow in November will be cold, wet and stormy. Deduct 5,000 attendees. Those who would normally fly must do a Greta to cut their carbon footprint – another 5,000.

Vegans have the headlines just now, so all meat-eaters are disqualified. Another 5,000.

It should be made clear that all those who plan to make an entrance in a limousine, helicopter or petrol/diesel car will be refused entry. Another 5,000.

Attendees will have to personally pay Glasgow’s congestion charge and tourist tax, which will be introduced in time for COP26. Another 5,000. Those who camp on Glasgow Green will be exempt.

Finally, all delegates must pay towards the $100billion a year Climate Fund for the poorer countries. 4,500 fewer. This leaves 500 attendees, so saving greenhouse gases of 98 per cent.
