COMMENTARY: What the Caribbean needs from COP26

Nowhere in the world needs COP26 to deliver more than the Caribbean. As the effects of climate change accelerate, New Energy asked key figures from across the region to tell us what they hope for, and what the international community needs to do to support the bid for resilience and the energy transition in the Caribbean.

“We have to believe, then act, if we want to win this race. We have to find a way to solve this issue. As it relates to energy, we need to see more funding.  However as much as the energy transition is important, there are cash flows associated with energy transition. Energy is one of the easier options to find funding solutions for, despite the lag in our energy transition.

“As much as the energy transition is important, there are cash flows associated with energy transition.”

Adaptation is where the Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator would like to see the most attention being paid. The challenge continues to be cash flows. We’re protecting against future harm that is not specifically known. We’re projecting the considerable damage that we are likely to face. Figuring out how much to spend and where to start is incredibly daunting. We would like to see support to the region in funding adaptation and prioritizing that along with our energy transition.”

    All these people in Cop26 are biased including Mia Mortley lol Lobbying to cash in on some of the financings by being the trust/trustee/consulting middlemen in some way then putting some of that money into the colonialist trillion $/£ financial system away from their home country. This isn’t easy pensions and lobbyists funds are backed by none fossil fuel-free funds. :lol:

    Can anybody let me know when in time immemorial was the earth climate ever stuck or designed to be permanently stuck in a static non-changing state?

    It’s time folks start recognizing what is the REAL purpose behind this ‘climate change’ Trojan Horse. The real purpose is to control people’s daily life, their work, what we eat, how we travel, what we wear etc. CONTROL!!! CONTROL!!! CONTROL!!!!

    Who is behind it? People with a fervent desperate desire to CONTROL the lives of human beings. These people are absolutely absurd.

    I’m still waiting for the conclusive evidence from Skerrit & the rest of the modern-day ‘climate change’ propagandists & puppets that proves that Hurricane Maria was due directly to ‘climate change’? I also want to know if Hurricane David was due to ‘climate change’.
