Former Globalist President Barack Obama criticized Donald Trump in a speech to the COP26 summit in Glasgow, Scotland.
Obama claimed that the global response to climate change has been damaged due to the “rise of nationalism and tribal impulses around the world.”
Obama also blamed “a lack of leadership on America’s part for four years on a host of multilateral issues.”
In 2017, Trump withdrew America from Obama’s Paris Climate Accords.
Trump said in his speech at the time:
“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”
Obama criticized Trump, without mentioning his name, for “four years of active hostility towards climate science.”
The former President joined his jet-setting elites buddies at the climate change summit in Glasgow, Scotland.
“[T]here are times when I feel discouraged when the future seems bleak, and I am doubtful that humanity can get its act together before it’s too late,” Obama will say.
“And yet, whenever I feel such despondency, I remind myself that cynicism is the recourse of cowards. We can’t afford hopelessness.”
Obama sent a message to the youth, urging them against alienating adults from the urgency of their message on climate.
“To change those folks, we can’t just yell at them, or tweet at them, or inconvenience them by blocking traffic through protests,” Obama will say, urging young people to “listen to the objections and reluctance of ordinary people.”
Unsurprisingly, he is expected to back President Joe Biden’s decision to get back into the Paris climate agreement and make commitments to curb methane.
Last week, Prince Charles called for a “vast military-style campaign” to tackle climate change during the COP26 summit.
The Duke of Edinburgh called on global governments to enforce “war-like footing” to solve the climate crisis.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us just how devastating a global cross-border threat can be; climate change and biodiversity loss are no different,” Charles said.
