What’s this bullshit about carbon pledge friendly? It’s Tuesday Feb 13. I was looking to buy some HP printing paper yesterday, and underneath each item was a little green symbol that said “Climate Pledge Friendly”. It turns out that Jeff Bezos’ Amazon have launched this nonsensical nonsense. This must be what Jeff’s GF, Lauren Sanchez was talking about when she said that Jeff was trying to do something about ‘climate change’. From the Amazon website.. “Climate Pledge Friendly is a simple way for customers to discover more sustainable products that help preserve the natural world,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “With 18 external certification programs and our own Compact by Design certification, we’re incentivizing selling partners to create sustainable products that help protect the planet for future generations.” Oh great, more virtue signalling to fix a non existent problem. That’s all we need. To be fair, it doesn’t specifically mention the thing that doesn’t exist, climate change, but I’m sure it’s implied.
Cancel that last statement. I hadn’t read through the full screed, and it’s definitely about climate change. ergo.. “The Climate Pledge Friendly initiative supports Amazon’s commitment to reach the Paris Agreement ten years early and be net zero carbon by 2040. The company is on a path to powering our operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025, ordered over 100,000 fully-electric delivery vehicles, and plans to invest $100 million in reforestation projects around the world. Amazon also launched the Climate Pledge Fund, a $2 billion fund to back visionary companies whose products and services will facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy.”
Guess what? Net Zero will never, ever fucking happen. It’s a fucking idiotic, pointless pipe dream, and unless he’s a complete retard, Jeff knows this. I simply do not understand how these cretins imagine that they can have any effect on the temperature of the planet. It’s really one of life’s mysteries, how they arrive at this mind blowingly stupid idea. A low carbon economy, eh? How does that even fucking work? A couple of the ideas in this citadel of delusional thinking are actually good though in theory, at least. Compact By Design is one of them. “Many products have been designed to stand out on a store shelf. Products don’t need eye-catching packaging online and Compact by Design has identified products without this excess packaging.”
If this means the end of things like those Keurig one shot plastic coffee dispenser pods, I’m all for it. We can’t have a useful plastic bag to hold our groceries any more, but people with zero taste can still drink one cup of shitty coffee by putting one of these things in a plastic water heater, because they’re too lazy to prepare it any other way. It’s fucked up man. This utter shit is creeping into everything now though. Try and book a flight somewhere, and you’ll be given a list of flights with % of “emissions” that the particular flight is supposed to emit. I say “supposed to” because how can these cunts even know for sure what effect a trace gas like carbon, which naturally occurs in far greater quantities than anything else, even does to the climate?
The sheeple will eat it up though. It’s the same mentality that asks you if you want to donate money to offset your carbon sins on your trip. There needs to be a disclaimer attached to all of this “guilt tripping”. For example = “Please be aware that the people asking you to do this regularly fly all over the planet in private jets, spewing more ‘carbon’ in one flight than you and your whole family will in a lifetime.” The whole thing is a scam. It always has been. Smaller and more efficient packaging and environmentally sound ideas are wrapped up in this excrement though, all under the climate banner. The climate isn’t everything that these things are. It’s like they’re giving you a shit sandwich. The bread is wholesome, but the filling is horse dung.
Just an FYI to finish up. “Global Optimism is a purpose-driven organization that exists to catalyze transformative actions in our world. The organization co-founded The Climate Pledge and is led by two founding partners: Christiana Figueres, former UN climate chief and Tom Rivett-Carnac, former political strategist at the UNFCCC, who together oversaw the delivery of the historic Paris Agreement, the first global accord on climate change.”
And now, heeeere’s the VERY UNPLEASANT TRUTH about all of this..drum roll please…
From a 2015 article at Investors.com “At a news conference last week in Brussels, the same Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.”
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution. Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year”, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”she said.”
Somebody should give Jeff a heads up on this. They want to save the Amazon by killing Amazon.
