US President Joe Biden has criticised the leaders of China and Russia for not turning up to the COP26 climate summit. In a speech on Tuesday night, Mr Biden said climate was “a gigantic issue” and China “walked away” – adding it was the “same thing with Russia and Putin”. Neither Russian President Vladimir Putin nor Chinese leader Xi Jinping are at the summit in Glasgow. China is the world’s largest emitter of carbon dioxide, followed by the US. Russia is the fifth largest after the EU and India. More than 120 leaders turned up at the conference in Scotland’s largest city.
“The fact that China is trying to assert, understandably, a new role in the world as a world leader – not showing up, come on,”
Mr Biden said, adding that Xi Jinping’s absence was a “big mistake”. He said the same about Mr Putin, saying that Russia’s wilderness was burning and their president “stays mum” about the issue.
The huge conference held this week in Scotland (UK) is officially called the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties, and this is the 26th iteration. Since the full name is something of a mouthful, it is shortened to COP26. The world’s leaders meet and attempt to work together to solve the threat of climate change. We know that mankind will never be able to solve the issues of climate change and things will only get worse until Jesus Christ intervenes. The world’s largest polluter is China and their leader didn’t even attend. Russia is 5th on the list and Putin didn’t attend either. Again we see the world divided not united. And this is why “the world” will never be able to solve their problems. The greatest risk therefore isn’t climate change it is the conflict of Armageddon – i.e. war. If Jesus did not return we are told that no flesh would survive.
