Everything Mr #Obama said at @COP26 is right. But, we all know the right thing ‘to say’. Does not take away from fact that as US President he did more than anyone to kill #ClimateChange action at #Copenhagen + mighty proud of doing so (see his biography).

Could not have put it more pithily myself. Net Zero is mere Net Hero-giri dada-giri (as they might say in Bollywood) of the primary polluters since the 1850s ! twitter.com/AdilNajam/stat…

Dear all at @COP26, Please do not try to fool us. Try not to fool yourself either. #NetZero is NOT Zero. Your fake promises are no longer worth the #HotAir blowing from #Glasgow.

Der Klimaforscher Adil Najam warnt, dass aufgrund des Klimawandels bald „2,5 Milliarden Menschen ihre Lebensgrundlage verlieren“ und in andere Länder migrieren müssten. Schuld am Klimawandel seien vor allem westliche Konsumgewohnheiten. exxpress.at/preis-fuer-uns…

In #Barcelona today, was totally mesmerized by birds eye view of the workings of a modern container terminal. Was transfixed in awe, but also in fear, at the complex web of #SupplyChains that we have come to depend on. Truly, a monstrous marvel. But, a monster nonetheless.
#Biden view @COP26 same as #Trump’s: “The idea we’re going to be able to move to renewable energy overnight [is] just not rational.” Sadly #Kerry parrots same: “You can’t just shut down everybody’s economy across the planet and say, ‘OK, we’re not going to use oil’ or whatever.”
US strategy at global #climate negotiation unchanging: a)Use American public as excuse b)Pin blame on someone else (current fav: China) c)Push vulnerable poor countries (victims) to “do more” #Obama used it to kill #Copenhagen; Kerry to water down #Paris theconversation.com/paris-agreemen…
From the beginning, EVERY hope for global #climate action has been killed by a US🇺🇸 President#Bidenen certainly no better tha#Trumpmp. Essential US policy o#ClimateInactionon defined b#GeorgeBushsh for 1992 Rio Summit: “American way of life is not up for negotiations. Period.Pt
THE CLASS THAT FAILED!!! Leaders of the rich world agree on #climate strategy! Throw coins into a pit of water & pray! Having fed us false #climate promises for a quarter century, G20 resorts to superstition & prayer as alternative to action. And can't that coordinated either!
Interviewed by @NoticiasdeAlava after my talk in #Bilbao on dynamics of our emerging new normal: “#COVID has highlighted for us just how expensive a bad health system can be!” “El covid ha enseñado al mundo lo caro que resulta un mal sistema de salud” noticiasdealava.eus/actualidad/soc…

As #Afghanistan head towards spectacular victory vs #Scotland in #T20WorldCup, the political symbolism could not be greater. (a) #AFG did not even play cricket till recently, (b) last #Taliban government had banned all sports, deemed unislamic. Flag+anthem decided definitively?
@AdilNajam admire your passion and support for @TCFPak as always. Quality Education for ALL is the single most important intervention needed in #Pakistan @tcfusaorg & Pakistani diaspora in USA have been putting smiles on the faces of so many kids from underprivileged backgrounds twitter.com/AdilNajam/stat…

So glad to speak last night at very successful #Boston fundraising gala for @tcfusaorg which raised 4+ Crore to support @TCFPak schools & education in #Pakistan . So many do so much good work that needs our support. Great to see Pakistani generosity in action. Pics @BobbyGuliani.
I do a lot of events but this - on #Education in Pakistan during #COVID19 (for @tcf_usa_) - was amongst the most insightful, most meaningful. @BariFaisal from @LUMS_SOE @khadijashahperb from @teachforpak #RiazKamlani from @TCFPak Do please watch, full: youtu.be/m0PPDpZECn4?t=…

Was on panel hosted by @ScotiaGroup26 and @TheSmithSchool at @UniofOxford on #COP26Glasgow and beyond. Need to declare a 'diplomatic emergency' because COPs are not delivering. Also, "unless done globally, NetZero is NOT zero." twitter.com/BUPardeeSchool…

Person accidently bumps into someone. Though not at fault, other person says: "Oh, sorry!" First person responds, equally instinctively: "Don't worry, no problem." Immediately realizes it was actually their own fault. Both start laughing. People, I think,are instinctively good.
.@AdilNajam described the U.S.-Pakistan relationship as “odd, absurd, and constantly influenced by third countries.” “It’s a very transactional relationship depending on who needs what from whom," he said.
