COP 26 Glasgow Pack - PNG and West Papua: Carbon Credits, Human Rights Questions

The conversation is interesting.

Case 1 : Papua New Guinea.

PNG's special envoy to COP 26 was Cabinet Minister Wera Mori. He had a compelling public policy idea.

 Billionaire Bill Gates had a chat with him. It was a chat generated within an academic discipline. Bill Gates would purchase PNG's carbon credits.

But, the chat did not, and can not survive and endure in the real world of politics.

In the end, the COP 26 was a failed mission for PNG. According to wealthy and power full countries to the North, poor countries to the South had a weak case. And, the only plausible path toward climate protection would entail a market-based strategy.  

This would involve placing a price on carbon emissions from the use of coal, oil, and natural gas.

There was therefore no agreement on the article in the COP 26 Glasgow Pack to cater for the case put by PNG for the Rainforest Coalition Countries. PNG was the chair.

So, imperialism continues. And, the economics and politics of carbon credits left PNG languishing, out, in the cold.
