Social inequality is reflected in CO2 emissions, with the wealthy contributing the most while the poor consume the least. The failure of Paris COP goals can be attributed to this disparity, resulting in a 12% increase in global CO2 emissions since 2010, predominantly from affluent sectors.Despite promises, the Climate Fund, designed to safeguard non-CO2 emitting populations, particularly the poor, remains inadequately financed. Wealthy nations resist devaluing their fossil capital, tied to oil, coal, and gas, fearing it would disrupt their wealth structure, rooted in carbon production and consumption.Fossil energy played a crucial role in boosting work productivity and the profits of the world's wealthiest. The reluctance to embrace decarbonization stems from the potential erosion of their wealth foundations. The lifestyles associated with the American dream, European comfort, and consumption patterns in China or India heavily rely on carbon, contributing to the global crisis.As climate impacts intensify, the transfer of wealth from North to South to assist non-CO2 emitting populations faces challenges. The increasing social inequality in carbon consumption drives populations from the South to the North, leading to potential mass migrations.The looming question is the future response to this exodus, marked by anti-immigration policies and the rise of the extreme right in wealthy countries. A shift toward violence and unrest mirrors current events in Gaza, showcasing a potential rehearsal of the future.To avert this dark future, addressing climate change requires a united effort. Proposals include making COP plans binding, establishing global public powers for a decarbonized economy, restructuring the financial system, and issuing Special Drawing Rights to fund climate crisis mitigation and adaptation.Urgent actions such as discontinuing fossil fuel exploration contracts and advocating for a global fracking ban are essential. The path forward lies in unity among the poor and their collective struggle, emphasizing multilateralism, international law, and reforms to institutions like the United Nations. ... See MoreSee Less
