All the COP 26 will need now is the presence of the Burmese Junta leader to make a full set of immoral morons. I just hope Greta Thunberg don't call the Thai PM a pig faced hypocrite as he will possibly spray her with alcohol.

He'll leave his double to deal with her while he entertains the delegates with his elephant's trunk impersonation ..

Well you'd expect it to be a trunk call, all the way to Thailand from Glasgow.

Know what you mean. However despite my disdain for this PM I have to be honest and suggest that he is no more of a hypocrite than the rest of the world leaders that will attend. It will all be nice talk and promises, commitments to to do this that and the other yet not one of them will sign up to a legal commitment to undertake any of it. It will just be yet another junket to appease the climatologists and their supporters but ultimately no more than an attempt to gain support for their own respective ballot boxes.  Am I cynical ? Too true I am.

Yes I too wonder why he isn't making concrete promises for 44 years time..........

Even Greta the Shrill will be in her dotage by then.

Maybe TAT could request the PM to ask Greta to make a personal New Years appearance in Thailand ? At least it would ensure 2023 starts off as a damp squid so could only get better.

The tourist industry in Thailand depends on the burning of large quantities of jet fuel to transport tourists in and out the Kingdom. Those giant airplanes are not going to work on batteries. Then there are the 10 million vehicles currently on Thai roads powered by burning fossil fuels. Even if they are all replaced by electric vehicles the electricity to power them would have to be generated by burning fossil fuels in Thailand. So just how does the PM propose to lower the Kingdom's carbon footprint ?

Given the leaders of the biggest polluters have told them to stick it up their arse this has just been reduced to a jolly !

Best thing that could happen for Thailand would be for all the others at the meeting to refuse to have their photo taken in his presence, don't listen to his lies and totally ignore him.

Wishful thinking I know.

I thought the absolute worst of the worst was Scott Morrison and the Australian government.  Their net zero policy consists of doing absolutely nothing confident that a combination of future technology and magical thinking will achieve the desired result.  Not that they actually believe any of that guff.

A combination of solar plus wind and nuclear would work. 

Er......better skip the nuclear because Thailand.
