Only one thing truly hurt him at a gut level, and it wasn€™t the‚ endangerment‚ of his vice president in a Capitol attacked by a rabid mob sporting the‚ Confederate flag, MAGA hats, and‚ anti-Semitic T-shirts.  Nor, believe it or not, was it even the threat of being the first president in American history to be‚ impeached twice; nor having‚ Deutsche Bank‚ (which kept him afloat for years) and other major corporate entities suddenly sever ties with him; nor even having one of his major financial supporters, Sheldon Adelson,‚ die‚ on him. For Donald Trump, the biggest blow of last week was reportedly the Professional Golfers€™ Association, or P.G.A.,‚ announcement‚ that it was taking its 2022 championship match away from the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.  In other words, the man who had visited golf courses more‚ than 300 times‚ during his presidency had suddenly become the golf equivalent of an undocumented immigrant and, according to those close to him, that truly €œgutted€ him.

The activists confronting Shell at the COP24: Three Nigerians Nnimmo Bassey, Gowin Ojo and Rita Uwaka are part of the action

BY GLOBAL COMPLIANCE RESEARCH PROJECT

RECALLING THAT In 1988, at the Climate Change Conference in Toronto, three hundred global scientists, along with other participants concluded:

Humanity is conducting an unintended, uncontrolled, globally pervasive experiment whose ultimate consequence could be second only to a global nuclear war. the Earth's atmosphere is changed at an unprecedented rate by pollutants resulting from depositions of hazardous, toxic and atomic wastes and from wasteful fossil fuel use. These changes represent a major threat to international security and are already having harmful consequences over many parts of the globe.... it is imperative to act now."

In the Conference statement, Changing Atmosphere Conference in 1988 and they called for the global community, to Reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 20% of 1988 levels by the year 2005 as an initial global goal. Clearly the industrialized nations have a responsibility to lead the way both through their national energy policies and their bilateral multilateral assistance arrangement.

AWARE THAT In 1992, under article 4 of UNFCCC developed states made a commitment to return to 1990 levels by the end of the decade (i.e. 2000) (Article 4, UNFCCC);

RECALLING THAT in September 2007, at the UN, the Chair of the IPCC Rajendra Pachauri supported,"moving from a meat-based diet to a plant based diet.

RECALLING THAT In 2009 at an IPCC press conference at COP15, it was proclaimed that at a 2 degree rise in temperature, the poor, the vulnerable and the disenfranchised would not survive, at 1.5, they might

AWARE THAT in 2013, all member states adopted Sustainable Development Goal 13- Climate change presents the single biggest threat to development, and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable. Urgent action to combat climate change is needed.

APPRECIATING THAT in 2015. at COP 21, Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, in Paris, urged states to negotiate with a global vision NOT with vested national interests

WELCOMING ON August 4 2019 Secretary General Antonio Guterres stated: We are facing a grave climate emergency. We need urgently to accelerate with Climate Action for the transformation the world needs. This is the battle of our lives. It is a battle we can win. It is a battle we must win.

Dear Yanis

 

I have tried to contact you for two months but your e-mail is still full; I thought i would try one more time because october 2 2020 is the last day that green party members in Canada has the opportunity to vote for an outstanding socialist candidate Dimitri Lascaris , and member of the Progressive  International

I

"My name is Joan Russow and I am the former leader of the Green Party of Canada."

 

I was extremely disappointed in Bernie Sanders’ not receiving the Democratic nomination but was revived when I saw that the both of you had launched the Progressive International and I joined immediately and hoped that would be a way of uniting progressives internationally. Especially those running for office. I am writing to you about an outstanding socialist candidate who is running for the leadership of the Green Party of Canada: Dimitri Lascaris.  He is running

 

To defy the powerful

To confront injustice

To unite progressives

To disrupt the status quo

 

He is well-respected lawyer and has taken on corporations through the courts   and he has been a fierce critic of capitalism. Both of us had given up on the NDP when they struck “socialism” from their mandate. You may remember him from when he interviewed you for the real news and from when he reported extensively on the austerity crisis in Greece and met numerous senior officials in the Syriza government.
