Post Fossil Civilization
COP26 is another yearly ritual of governments discussing the climate issues and now limiting the talks to the review of national communications and emission inventories submitted by parties.Global call for deep cuts in emissions, such as Oilwatch International’s call Annex O proposal are still being met with indifference. The illusion of the silver bullet called Net Zero, a collection of algorithms and technologies, seems to be leading the discussions rather than real climate actions.
Critically, this is the time for the world to keep fossils in the ground and shift to a post fossil fuels future as the fossil fuels civilization has driven the planet to the brink.
