BLUE GROWTH IS GREEN GROWTH - A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But this map of air pollution levels tells us that the air we are breathing is pretty disgusting, with India and China right up their with Africa. Check out carbon monoxide as a gas that kills humans. The countries with black circles need to clean up their act, because lung cancer kills around 8 million people a year.
'Green Growth' is another name for 'Blue Growth.' They both mean fostering economic growth and development, while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which our well-being relies.
To do this countries must catalyse investment and innovation which will underpin sustained growth and give rise to new economic opportunities. But they must realise, that their present course of action is un-sustainable, and de-couple from the economic strategies that have caused the problem.
Improvements in efficiency can only stave off the inevitable for so long, buying politicians, who are dyed in the wool climate criminals, a few more years in power.
Change of course, means tightening your belts, not going beyond the abilities of the planet to repair and sustain life. We have already exceeded those limits many times over. Politicians will not like to hear this, because they like to promise a good time, as the ruse to get themselves elected. If a candidate tells it like it is, they will not become president or prime minister because the voting public, en-masse, are gullible, not armed with the facts, and liable to believe fake news.
For example, Boris Johnson, used 'Brexit' as a battering ram to sway his own party members, and British voters, to elect him Prime Minister, but the figures upon which he mounted his election campaign have since been disproved. He had to be able to lie effectively to achieve this, even deceiving Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth as to suspending (the famous unlawful prorogue of) parliament. Itself, a fake (false) move to help him get elected. Mr Johnson also promised green growth, cheap energy, electric cars, and more. But failed to deliver on such promises, using green growth more as greenwashing blah, blah, blah. As Greta Thunberg would say.
GERIATRIC UNDERTAKER - Companies that pay politicians to lobby for them, to continue with fossil fuels and impede the introduction of electric vehicles and green hydrogen, or other sustainable fuels, should be prosecuted for human rights violations.
OECD DECLARATION ON GREEN GROWTH
Green growth is a term to describe a hypothetical path of economic growth that is environmentally sustainable. It is based on the understanding that as long as economic growth remains a predominant goal, a decoupling of economic growth from resource use and adverse environmental impacts is required. As such, green growth is closely related to the concepts of green economy and low-carbon or sustainable development. A main driver for green growth is the transition towards sustainable energy systems. Advocates of green growth policies argue that well-implemented green policies can create opportunities for employment in sectors such as renewable energy, green agriculture, or sustainable forestry.
LUNG CANCER - Fumes and particulates from car exhausts kills us slowly when we burn it and release the carcinogens into the atmosphere to create smogs. Electric vehicles don't have exhaust pipes and dedicated smart service stations can be used to load level between solar and wind generated, distributed electricity.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation that claims to work to build better policies for better lives. Their stated goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all, drawing on 60 years of experience and insights to better prepare the world of tomorrow.
This is a bone of contention, because it is the present policies that are not working, that must change. The OECD have not been able to influence politicians to action, more blah, blah, blah and greenwashing, than actual strategy development, while sitting on your hands.
said, with all that sixty years behind them, we are still
accelerating to the climate change precipice, from where there
may be an extremely difficult return, that could exceed human life
on earth. That may sound drastic, but look at what we are
doing to the earth. Islands are being flooded, the ice caps
melting and deserts are expanding causing mass migration,
human suffering and death. Let's tell it like it is!
They claim to provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.
