The Carbon Majors Report came out two weeks ago has been used to stoke Marxist fears that “corporates” are polluting the world.
Since 1988, a mere 100 companies have been responsible for 71 percent of the entire world’s industrial greenhouse gas emissions.
This data comes from an inaugural report published by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an environmental non-profit. Charting the rapid expansion of the fossil fuel industry in the last 28 years, they have now released some truly staggering numbers on the world’s major carbon polluters.
Tess Riley of The Guardian tells us that “A relatively small number of fossil fuel producers and their investors could hold the key to tackling climate change”. She goes on to name the worst corporations: “ExxonMobil, Shell, BP and Chevron are identified as among the highest emitting investor-owned companies since 1988″. It’s not til the ninth paragraph we find that: “A fifth of global industrial greenhouse gas emissions are backed by public investment, according to the report.”
Only a fifth?
Look closely — the Worst corporate “polluters” are Big Government, not the Capitalist Pigs.
Forget for a moment that “pollution” is a plant fertilizer. Check out the top ten on the list. The largest corporate producer by far is the communist government of China, followed by a Saudi owned entity (Aramco), not to mention the also state-owned National Iranian oil Co, Coal India, Permex (Mexico), Russia (Coal) and China National Petroleum Corp. Fully seven out of the top ten are not private corporations, but Big-government entities.
Riley doesn’t talk about how much influence investors can have on these. The message is “divest”. Go on, sell your Chinese bonds.
Alarmists call plant food ‘pollution’,
Which now needs their Marxist solution,
Which would force the reduction,
Of fossil fuel production,
In the West for the Green Revolution.
