KISMET GIRLS - EMPOWERED WOMEN
Unfortunately, in 2021 COP26 was FLOP26, except for coal getting a mention, but the nasty black stuff is still favoured by Narendra Modi, Scott Morrison, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, to produce cheap electricity. The planet is up Schitt's Creek without a paddle, but unlike the situation comedy, it is no joke.
27 "Loss and damage" made it onto the agenda with an agreement on a fund
as a major milestone. The difficult part, setting it up and filling with cash.
What then for COP28 in Dubai? In July 2023, Dr. Al Jaber, COP28 President Designate, reiterated his commitment to a Climate Cooling Pledge, saying "We cannot expand cooling on a business-as-usual basis. Without strong policy action, emissions from the sector will rise between 7 to 10 percent from today. To solve this dilemma, we need a rapid transition to energy-efficient and climate-friendly cooling." All fingers crossed, for COP not FLOP.
FIVE MINUTES PAST MIDNIGHT
It is not 5 minutes to midnight as policy makers would have you believe, it is already 5 minutes past midnight, meaning that even if we stop developments dead - right now - the human race will not be able to avoid the consequences of extreme temperatures. So perhaps invest in asbestos, or other fireproof housing.
Global warming + corruption in government combined, with irresponsible politicians and corporations know they are killing thousands of species, creating deserts and poisoning the oceans, in the anthropocene age where man is ecocidally dumping on his doorstep.
LONDON PROTESTS - Extinction Rebellion climate change protestors in Bristol and London make their mark for 3 days in April 2019. The British Government refuses to meet for talks, instead police use draconian terrorist laws to thwart peaceful protests. In 2021, protestors up the ante with sit ins on the M25.
SKOLSTREJK - Greta Thunberg was a girl of action, gone to ground, but we hope will make a come back at COP 26. She is an activist who believes in action and she speaks her mind about climate change - thank heavens - for the rest of us who are led like sheep by politicians who have lost the plot. Greta is like a guiding light and a beacon of hope for planet earth and all life on our precious blue planet. You can read her UN COP24 speech here.
In the UK and around the world we are suffering a cost of living crisis - power and fuel shortages in a world where there is enough wind and solar energy to give us sustainable electricity many times over, for our homes and transport. But politicians will not budge, so ingrained are they with coal and oil. They are comfortable warming the world, and will be so until it bursts into flames. Voters are finally making an impact, with a fairly apparent mood of change.

ACTION GIRLS - More than ever, today, success in our modern world depends on looking the part. But what is looking the part? Being strong does not necessarily mean being physically powerful, it includes determination to build on your achievements and using your acquired knowledge and skills to make a difference. Feeling fitter and stronger gives you more confidence to face the world. Get out there and intimidate the men who are idea impotent. Let's do something for our children - for it is they who will suffer the consequences of inaction.
