The Dutch Climate agreement. It exists of 233 pages en contains all beautiful “management” words. Like goals, empty statements and references.
There are supporting , thinks on subsidies , streams of money made available for parties from which the consultant can profit in a nice smooth way. That these streams of money are being paid by the taxpayer is a story that also needs attention. Will save that one for another time.
What are the real things by which we can save the climate. In a manageable form ofcourse. Are we going to do it sustainable? That does not mean that it is good for the ecology. Or acceptable for the citizens
The agreement has been settled by many different parties at different tables. Depending on the subject. The possible good outcomes are therefore negotiated to vague promises and intentions. The real experts are barely involved. Otherwise spear points who where pointed out now , hydrogen – biomass – circular agriculture , would have been treated different. *** The shortnoun OED , oppervlakte energie dichtheid / surface energy density , would have been mentioned in that case. This is together with the (electricity) network the basis to achieve something. If you do not know what that means. Do not have a vision on that. If you do not have a central , nation – and continental wide , coordination than you are doomed.
Politicians are looking on that point , so knowledge , guilty. But there is an other on which they are guilty. Except that we should do everything that really works , have a look at the book Drawdown by Paul Hawken , it should be clear that it is urgent as hell.
The politicians are still playing with the factor: Time. There is no time to waist and still they playing with it. It can wait for a while because the goals are only there in 2030 and 2050. The Climate Agreement from Paris and other agreements are being use as a guideline. Time for meetings and bargaining with measures is already gone. Still that is what they are doing. Deliberately?? If they look in the mirror they will realize it. Looking at their faces and into their eyes it shows as well. Some are laughing it away and say it will be allright. It is almost the same as denying it as some other politicians do.
Politics is a slowing and distorting factor in the problems we are facing. They should realize that in this way their role quickly could be played out. It is time that their (personal/party) interests should be put aside and serve the people.
The same goes for the NGO’s. Greenpeace for example puts Hydrogen in first place for solving the climate problem. But that is not the solution unless you are stupid. Just like the fact that they where realizing for decennia that intensive animal husbandry was the biggest climate problem. Deliberately they did not put it on the agenda. Their businessmodel is more important than to share the real knowledge and making it clear to the world. There are more of these NGO’s from which the real good NGO’s have to suffer. Their ego and exsistance are more important than mankind.
Being transparant and a not leading by ego , for organizations that is profit , is what makes parties serving the people on this planet. The humans should be put in the centre and only in that way they a right of existence and real legitimacy. If that is not going to happen and the people also really demand it it will become a nice world for only the selected few. When planet Earth is consumed they think there will be another planet within their reach. The nice things about planets is that they are not dying but only transforming. To the good or bad of the current nature on that planet.
