How to spot the difference between a real climate policy and greenwashing guff | Damian Carrington
Unless actions by governments and corporations cut emissions in the here and now, a dose of scepticism is in order
So it’s goodbye climate deniers, hello – and you’ll pardon me for being blunt here – climate bullshitters.
The impacts of the climate emergency are now so obvious, only the truly deluded still deny them. Instead, we are at the point where everyone agrees something must be done, but many are making only vague, distant promises of ineffective action. As a result, we are currently on track for a 0.5% cut in global emissions from 2010 levels by 2030, when a 45% drop is needed to avoid climate catastrophe.
