GLOBAL 20 CLIMATE CHANGERS
G20 - Like it or not the Group of 20 most industrialized nations are leading us to an irrecoverable end. You can imagine that when these incredible creatures roamed the earth, that they thought they were invincible. It's hard to imagine these creatures existed, but they did and we can learn from them - if we want to survive.
THE G20 HOT HEADS A - Z
At the moment they are leading us to extinction because they operate policies to grow their economies to appease their wealthy backers and get richer themselves in the process.
It is rare for someone to enter politics without the ambition to succeed personally. We would ask those considering standing for office to do so to make a difference in the world, by working to achieve stability and understanding.
Continuous economic growth might seem great in terms of making the electorate feel good in the short term, but in the long term it will all have been for nothing as planet earth slowly burns to ashes along with all our paper money. How will the electorate feel then?
Any survivors will blame political Hot Heads for leading them to the brink.
If the G20 were to implement ways of reducing climate change on an urgent basis to reverse global warming, the remaining nations, flora and fauna would stand a better chance of surviving. We might even stop the melting of our ice caps, sea level rise and ocean acidity.
The richest nations will find it harder than poorer nations to put the brakes on. They like making money and think they are in competition with the other 19 nations of the Top Twenty, to outperform them in the rankings as some kind of cold war tactic to take over the rest of the world economically - that is raising the earth's temperature. Hence, it is a Heat or Hot War.
The economic race, or Hot War is creating a decidedly unstable situation that is spiraling out of control in terms of greenhouse gases. The sensible thing to do is to cool down economic growth, so reducing global warming. We must find an economic formula that sits well with the natural world. This is called a Circular Economy, meaning that we can all live and prosper sustainably. Without killing species and upsetting ecological balances.
We need to stop building more inefficient houses and factories. We need to work to conserve what we have aiming for carbon neutrality.
The remaining countries in the world should of course reciprocate and salute the bravery of any G20 nation for doing what is right. We are all in this together.
The World needs a Climate Action Plan to coordinate the efforts of member nations in becoming carbon neutral. The advantages are that where it is tempting to grab another quick buck while there are no penalties, as the temperature continue to climb we will be unable to manage a growing population on a shrinking land mass.
The G20 (or G-20 or Group of Twenty) is an international forum for governments and central bank governors from:
Founded in 1999, the G20 aims to discuss policy pertaining to the promotion of international financial stability. It seeks to address issues that go beyond the responsibilities of any one organization.
The G20's membership does not reflect exactly the 19 largest national
economies of the world in any given year. The organization
ABOUT GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT
Gross domestic product (GDP) is the market value of all final goods and services from a nation in a given year. Countries are sorted by nominal GDP estimates from financial and statistical institutions, which are calculated at market or government official exchange rates. Nominal GDP does not take into account differences in the cost of living in different countries, and the results can vary greatly from one year to another based on fluctuations in the exchange rates of the country's currency. Such fluctuations may change a country's ranking from one year to the next, even though they often make little or no difference in the standard of living of its population. The figures quoted here are only a guide.
