The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October - 12 November 2021. The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the UNFCCC will be taking place at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow, which was chosen by the UK to host COP26 due to its experience, commitment to sustainability and world-class facilities. The 'Dear Green Place' is the perfect place to host a sustainable and inclusive COP. It has set a target for carbon neutrality by 2030, aims to be one of the greenest cities in Europe.
COP26 stands for the 26th Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC. In 1992, countries agreed to an international treaty called [the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which set ground rules and expectations for global cooperation on combating climate change.
Heads of State, Ministers of Environment, UN Officials, Politicians, nongovernmental organizations and business leaders attend the conference.
Countries are required under the Paris Agreement to update their national climate action plans every five years, including at COP26. This year, they're expected to have ambitious targets through 2030.
Speaking ahead of the COP26 climate conference, Prince Charles said the future of humanity and nature was at stake and it was time to grasp the opportunity for a green recovery.
The whole of humanity is in the ring," British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said, as leaders and activists from across the world arrive in Glasgow for COP26.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has warned that world leaders must act now "if we are to leave a habitable planet to future generations", ahead of his departure for the United Nations Cop26 summit.
COP26 President Alok Sharma has admitted that it will be "very, very tough" to convince world leaders to agree to robust proposals at the global climate conference.

The pretend-President Joe Biden (and his wife) visited the pope at the Vatican this Halloween weekend, too.

Biden's credibility on climate in the balance at UN summit in Glasgow
The president will arrive Monday in Scotland as ongoing wrangling within his own party casts a shadow of ambiguity over landmark U.S. climate legislation.

EDINBURGH, Scotland — President Joe Biden heads to a make-or-break global climate summit with one hand tied behind his back, with uncertainty over his ability to push the U.S. to forceful climate action muddying his message that other nations must step up.
For months, Biden made no secret of the fact that he wanted to show up at the U.N. summit in Glasgow with powerful measures signed into law to prove the U.S. was making good on his ambitious pledge to slash emissions. If not a signed law, at least a successful vote in Congress. If not a vote, at least unanimous Democratic support for a deal he could say was “as good as done.”
He will arrive Monday in Scotland with none of the above, as ongoing wrangling within his own party casts a shadow of ambiguity over landmark U.S. climate legislation.
The most Biden can say with certainty is that the United States appears on the verge of making the largest investment in fighting climate change in human history — more than half a trillion dollars.
“We’re not going to go there with any disappointment,” Gina McCarthy, Biden’s national climate adviser, told MSNBC after the White House unveiled its new spending framework Thursday. “He's going to go there meeting people knowing that the United States is all in again, and that they're going to have to run to keep up with us.”...
1. Absolute authoritarianism without meaningful accountability. 2. No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry. 3. No meaningful financial disclosure regarding budget, expenses such as an independently audited financial statement. 4. Unreasonable fear about the outside world, such as impending catastrophe, evil conspiracies and persecutions. 5. There is no legitimate reason to leave, former followers are always wrong in leaving, negative or even evil. 6. Former members often relate the same stories of abuse and reflect a similar pattern of grievances. 7. There are records, books, news articles, or television programs that document the abuses of the group/leader. ***
8. Followers feel they can never be “good enough.”*** 9. The group/leader is always right. 10. The group/leader is the exclusive means of knowing “truth” or receiving validation, no other process of discovery is really acceptable or credible.
The Verdict: It’s a cult
Bottom Line: To quote Steve Hayward “I’d say this nails it. Read the whole thing for more.”
Skipping this weekend’s G20 leaders’ meeting in Rome and the subsequent UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow are Chinese leader Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
Guess the climate rules don't apply to them': Outrage as billionaire eco warrior Bill Gates flies Jeff Bezos and FIFTY guests in helicopters to Turkish beach resort from his $2M-a-week yacht for his 66th birthday
Gates transported his guests by helicopter from his $2million-a-week rental yacht 'Lana' to the Sea Me Beach club in Fethiye.
The jet fuel used to power helicopters emits 21.095 pounds of carbon dioxide per gallon burned, and helicopters travel approximately 10.75 miles per gallon.
Bezos’ helicopter emitted some 215 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Both Bezos and Gates are reportedly staying on superyachts - each of which emits 7,020 tons of carbon dioxide per year, or 19 tons per day.
Gibraltar's Daniella Tilbury will be attending CoP26
She is currently HMGoG Commissioner for Sustainable Development and Future Generations.
Tilbury - "My first CoP was in Copenhagen in 2009 and although the global effort to cut emissions continues to be slow and painful, we are no longer talking about abstract concepts or disputing the science. In the Paris Agreement there is global commitment and a tangible framework that can be used to fight climate change."
Glasgow will need to raise the scale of the ambition and pace of implementation, but much has happened since we all met at CoP25 in Madrid two years ago.
CoP26 will establish the International Finance Reporting Standards Foundation to push for the adoption of a net-zero standard for financial institutions. I know that colleagues working in the sector are waiting to see what emerges from this with bated breath.
At COP26, Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres, a former Portuguese politician and devout Marxist, is seen with Boris Johnson and Macron. Guterres is one of those behind the World Economic Forum's 'Great Reset' plan.
The WEF's plan for a world government and turning billions into a underclass of SERFs features António Guterres in it's promotional video alongside the mad ravings of Totalitarian founder Klaus Schwab.
The Covid Pandemic and Climate Change have both been declared by the UN. The World Health Organisation and the International Panel on Climate Change are both UN departments and these two 'crises' just happen to be the same two McGuffin's used for the Great Reset.

Bezos, Gates Most Brazen Carbon-spewing Hypocrites at Glasgow Climate Conference - The New American
Another “climate summit,” another opportunity for the super-rich elites to put their hypocrisy on full display. This time it’s the UN’s COP26 meeting in Glasgow, Scotland, and the leading in-your-face hypocrites are Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates, with Prince Charles thrown in for good measure.
Bezos and his girlfriend seemed unconcerned about the tons of carbon they were emitting as they flew into Glasgow on Bezos’ $65-million GulfStream jet.
Bezos is so worried that carbon emissions are going to destroy the planet that, two days earlier, he was in Turkey, where he took a 120-mile round trip by helicopter to attend the birthday party Gates, who is also attending COP26, threw for himself aboard a superyacht. According to the Daily Mail, Gates, who turned 66 on Thursday, invited 50 people to the party and “transported his guests by helicopter from his $2million-a-week rental yacht ‘Lana’ to the Sea Me Beach club in Fethiye.” “The jet fuel used to power helicopters emits 21.095 pounds of carbon dioxide per gallon burned, and helicopters travel approximately 10.75 miles per gallon,” noted the newspaper.
Xi Jinping Scolds World on Climate Change While China Keeps Polluting
Chinese dictator Xi Jinping chose to address the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland, by video link instead of attending in person.
Xi demanded “concrete action” on climate change from the rest of the world, while China hauls record-breaking volumes of coal out of the Earth and pours it into the record-breaking number of carbon-generating coal-fired power plants it built over the past few years.
The BBC noted last week that Xi claims China’s carbon emissions will peak before 2030 and decline to “carbon neutrality” by 2060, but his government has not explained “exactly how these goals will be achieved.” China is currently emitting about twice as much carbon as the United States, or about as much as the rest of the top-five carbon-producing nations combined.
The Minister for the Environment, Sustainability and Climate Change will be in Glasgow this week, for the Global Summit on Climate Change.
John Cortes will be representing Gibraltar and the UK Overseas Territories at COP26.
On Saturday, he will publish a joint statement on the Environment with the Overseas Territories. Gibraltar’s own climate change strategy is expected to be published during the course of COP26.
Ahead of travelling to COP26, Minister Cortes has highlighted the importance of networking with others, given that with many of the OTs in tropical areas and surrounded by sea, they are directly threatened by Climate Change.
The Minister will also promote Gibraltar’s intention to access Green Finance opportunities during COP26.
Ahead of COP26, the Environment Safety Group in Gibraltar called for the government to publish environmental strategies.
ESG urges Govt to publish climate strategy, as UN warns global emissions rose again in 2020
The Environmental Safety Group has called on the Gibraltar Government to publish its strategy to reduce pollution and Gibraltar’s reliance on fossil fuels.
The ESG made its call ahead of the 26th UN climate Change Conference of the Parties [COP26] in Glasgow, a global summit that starts on Sunday and brings together governments and organisations from around the world to tackle global warming.
“As the world looks towards Glasgow and the start of possibly the most crucial global gathering ever for discussion on climate change, the ESG notes that here in Gibraltar we have yet to publish our own strategy earmarking a pathway to reduce our impacts and emissions,’ the ESG said in a statement.
“Publishing ahead of such an important summit as COP26, will further demonstrate the commitment and political will by Government to support the need for action when attending the conference and joining other nations pressing for urgent change.”
Responding to the report, Prof Dave Reay, the director of Edinburgh Climate Change Institute, University of Edinburgh, said the true success or failure of Cop26 would be written in the skies in the form of greenhouse gas concentrations.
The RGP’s Superintendent John Field is currently in Glasgow as an observer at the UN climate conference, COP26 – but he’s not there to listen to discussions of climate change.
Your Gibraltar TV -
Along with officers from the USA and Bermuda, Supt Field is in Glasgow to learn from the experience of Police Scotland as they aim to deliver a safe and secure COP26.
Around 12,000 police officers will be deployed each day during the conference in Glasgow. Five thousand officers will be drafted in from across Scotland, supported by seven thousand colleagues from other UK police forces as part of mutual aid arrangements.
Supt Field said, ‘I have never seen a police operation on this scale before so it has been an amazing experience and one that, I hope, will be of benefit to the RGP.’
Gibraltar will enshrine in legislation a commitment to include learning about the climate emergency and climate justice as fundamental principles in its education policies.
The commitment was made on Friday by Dr John Cortes, the Minister for Education and Environment, during a meeting at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.
The meeting, titled Together for Tomorrow, was a joint initiative by the UK Department for Education, Italy, UNESCO, Mock COP and Youth4Climate, and was chaired by Professor Daniella Tilbury, Gibraltar’s Commissioner for Sustainable Development and Future Generations.
Education and learning are increasingly seen as key means for addressing climate change.
“Her Majesty's Government of Gibraltar recognise fully that climate education is a crucial component in the fulfilment of a pupil's rights to quality education,” Dr Cortes said in a video statement.
Therein lies the problem. Not a gov't for the people; not The Lord's Gov't; but, hers they say. Was watching a video where it stated she cannot be sued or taken to the courts or anything like that. Why? She owns the courts. They work for her / obey her commands; a false god.
United Kingdom Overseas Territories Pledge Allegiance to the Globalist Climate Change Agenda
UK Overseas Territories in support of COP26 and marine biodiversity
The Association of United Kingdom Overseas Territories has published a joint statement in support of COP 26 and its commitment to protecting 30% of the world's oceans by 2030. The UK and its OTs are described as the world's fifth-largest marine estate.
“We, the Governments of the United Kingdom Overseas Territories, are custodians of internationally important habitats which span the globe from the Antarctic to the Caribbean, the South Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. Together with the UK we represent the world's fifth largest marine estate; over 90% of the UK's biodiversity; and are essential to the UK meeting its pledge by 2030 to protect 30% of the world's oceans. Climate change will have a profound impact upon our environments, economies and societies, a failure to act will impact not just us, but our children and all generations to come. To overcome the climate crisis facing our communities we must increase global solidarity and align our actions.
”As coastal and island communities, our economies rely upon maintaining healthy, sustainable marine and terrestrial environments. We commit to take action to protect our fisheries resources and to conserve and, wherever possible, restore our marine ecosystems and biodiversity. Building on the good work already undertaken by the Overseas Territories, we reaffirm an alliance to take action to tackle the harmful effects of plastic pollution and marine litter, often as a result of other countries which have impacted our shores.
“Our biodiversity, terrestrial and marine, support not only our wellbeing, but also contribute to our uniqueness, our nature-based fight against climate change and are important to those of us where tourism makes an important contribution to our economies.
”It is imperative that all nations prioritize their response to prevent further acceleration of human-induced global warming, and collectively commit to developing preventative measures to ensure the surface temperature does not exceed an increase of 1.5C.
“We, as individual Territories, pledge to work with the UK Government to develop Territory-led actions that tackle the specific challenges climate changes poses for each of us, to use our oceans and natural resources sustainably, for the benefit of current and future generations, and to take action to protect and restore our biodiversity.
”As Overseas Territories we pledge to work with others in a spirit of cooperation to secure meaningful outcomes from COP26 that will make a tangible difference in tackling the impacts of climate change in our territories”.
