UNITED NATIONS - WATCHDOGS
The chances of there being intelligent life in other galaxies is remote, especially as the moment a species evolves to be able to exploit their planet, they inevitably destroy their home by exhausting their natural resources.
If you think like us, that the United Nations is pandering to big business, with smaller nations being bullied by the playground bullies comprising the Greedy7, then you know why we are watching the UN closely to report on their successes and under performances.
By this means we hope to underscore where improvement is necessary, to include suggestions to that end. What is the point of having such an organization, funded by the parties themselves, if all it is, is window dressing - while the planet burns?
GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - The United Nations' climate summits are known as COP = Conference Of the Parties. This is the 24th, meaning twenty-four years during which these global discussions have been unable to put in place a binding action plan to save us from global warming. In 2018 fifty high profile companies wrote to the UN calling for solid action to curb climate change. The 26th session of the UNFCCC was originally scheduled to take place from 9-19 November 2020, in Glasgow, UK. On 28 May 2020, the COP Bureau decided that it would take place from 1-12 November 2021, in Glasgow, UK
FINANCE - IT'S ONLY MONEY
Many of the G20 cowboys are steeped in debt from failing economies. No more so that the USA, $Trillions of dollars in the red, and the UK, £2 trillion pounds in the red. Should these countries devalue their currencies? That may be the only way of scaling down as climate change demands.
The more the national debt, the greater the ineptitude of the administration. There is no argument about that. Only a fool borrows what he cannot afford to pay back.
Superheated economies based on continuous growth will see extinction on an unprecedented scale. The leaders causing this will be long gone, dead and buried. Leaving the youth of the next twenty years to pick up the pieces.
INJUSTICE SDG 16
Despite the Sustainability Development Goals, there are serious injustices all over the world, the most abominable of which are in civilised countries that purport to abide by the law contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The United Kingdom is one of the worst offenders, denying their citizens any effective remedy against injustice.
Recently, France and Belgium have been found guilty of (European Convention) Article 13 offences (Article 8 Universal), of having no effective remedy. The UK is next for challenge where Her Majesty has confirmed in one matter (via her private secretary), that as Head of State she is unwilling to "become involved," but there are other matters about which the affected citizen is looking for assistance, before seeking international assistance - replies awaited.
WTF! One of the biggest foul ups of the UN in 2020, was Covid 19. How did this happen. How was China allowed to release a virus all over the world that would be harmful to humans?
The World Health Organization of the United Nations was lambasted for being far too slow to observe and respond to what became the largest Ebola epidemic yet known, in West Africa between 2014 and 2016. In the years before, donor countries to the WHO had slashed the funds available, particularly hitting the division responsible for surveilling, monitoring, preparing for, and responding to possible epidemics.
Globally, as of 3:49pm CEST, 21 July 2020, there have been 14,562,550 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 607,781 deaths, reported to WHO.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and has resulted in an ongoing pandemic due to the failure of China and the UN's World Health Organization to contain the virus. Chinese airports, seaports, rail and road borders should have been closed immediately to protect their neighbors from infection. It is like a scene from James Bond movie, but more scary, because it is real.
Potentially more dangerous in terms of ocean conservation and long term food security, plastic in its many forms is invading marine life, to include seabirds, fish and marine mammals. Some shellfish beds are already too dangerous to use for food.
