Carta de 200 científicos criticando la captura corporativa de la COP 26

Más de 200 académicos de todo el mundo han criticado la "captura corporativa" de la cumbre del clima de Glasgow y piden una verdadera revolución verde para suavizar la ruptura de las sociedades. Tras la publicación del proyecto de decisión general de la COP26 de la CMNUCC, firmaron una carta pública.

La carta se titula: "Una advertencia de los académicos internacionales sobre la captura corporativa de la agenda climática y la necesidad de una verdadera revolución verde" y aparece en el periódico The Independent:

A principios de este año, el resumen oficial internacional de la ciencia del clima anunció que nos enfrentamos a un aumento de las catástrofes y los trastornos, siendo los más vulnerables los que más y más pronto sufrirán. Un informe filtrado del mismo proceso de la ONU identificó la necesidad de una transformación en nuestros sistemas económicos para un intento significativo de limitar las pérdidas y los daños.

Sin embargo, en la cumbre del clima COP26 de Glasgow no se lanzó ningún plan para una transformación económica basada en la justicia. Peor aún, los compromisos voluntarios de las empresas desviaron la atención de las políticas económicas necesarias para reducir el carbono atmosférico y prepararse para el empeoramiento de los trastornos. Todo ello a pesar de que durante décadas las iniciativas voluntarias no han tenido un impacto significativo en el clima. Negar que nuestro sistema económico es culpable, por lo que debe ser transformado para reducir el riesgo climático y adaptarse a las dificultades, es tanto anticientífico como poco ético. Para ignorar esta realidad, se está planeando malgastar enormes sumas de dinero en máquinas de captura de carbono ávidas de energía pero insignificantes (y aquí) desde el punto de vista atmosférico.

Los líderes políticos podrían, en cambio, ser sinceros con sus poblaciones sobre los cambios necesarios en las industrias y los estilos de vida. Respetando la justicia climática, podrían tomar medidas inmediatas para reducir la desigualdad tanto a nivel nacional como mundial, algo fundamental para que cualquier cambio en los medios de vida sea justo y duradero.

Somos cientos de académicos de docenas de países, que estamos apenados por la situación pero decididos a no ignorarla. Creemos que la captura corporativa y el fracaso de la COP26 demuestran claramente que las personas de las comunidades y organizaciones deben liderar ahora nuestra propia respuesta de emergencia. Esto incluye la defensa coordinada de políticas radicales desde fuera de un sistema impulsado por las empresas, para una verdadera revolución verde que reduzca y reduzca significativamente las emisiones, regenere la naturaleza y nos ayude a adaptarnos. También incluye el aumento de los esfuerzos de Adaptación Profunda dirigidos por la comunidad, independientemente de los gobiernos y las empresas transnacionales.

El aire caliente de Glasgow significa que es hora de un liderazgo más honesto y radical. Debemos poner fin a la fantasía de que el peligroso calentamiento global no empeorará o de que las grandes corporaciones vendrán a rescatarnos. Cuando escapemos de esa ilusión, podremos contribuir a un camino diferente, al que esperamos que se unan los gobiernos cuando escapen de las limitaciones del business-as-usual.

Cop26: Seis grandes fabricantes de automóviles se comprometen a abandonar el motor térmico

Una treintena de países y varios fabricantes de autos acordaron eliminar los coches de combustión de aquí a 2040 para limitar las emisiones de gases con efecto invernadero. Sin embargo, sin voluntad política para consolidar la cadena de producción de autos eléctricos y reducir precios, ese anuncio podría quedar en letra muerta, advierte un especialista en el sector
