Little hope when there is no self-respect and those who should work together instead compete.
Small, but significant, difference with the last supper.
Only one betrayed Jesus.
The Gordian knot of society, too many basics still depending on fossil fuels. And no simple sword is going to fix this one.
And how many of the people at the conference are going to fly private or government owned jets which spew MASSIVE amounts of greenhouse gasses to the UK so they can discuss how much damage is happening from fossil fuels?
All of this could be done with a big ol’ Zoom meeting. Imagine that! Then the hoi polloi could watch too.
Nah! Better to be a bunch of freaking hypocrites.
& Who will betray the World with a kiss?
It took me a minute but wonderful imagery! And straight to the point!

World scrambles to contain damage as greenhouse gas levels hit record
A report by the World Meteorological Organization showed that carbon dioxide levels surged to 413.2 parts per million in 2020, rising more than the average rate over the last decade despite a temporary dip in emissions during COVID-19 lockdowns.
Secretary-General Petteri Taalas said that the current rate of increase in heat-trapping gases would result in temperature rises “far in excess” of the 2015 Paris Agreement target of 1.5 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial average this century.
“We are way off track,” he said. “We need to revisit our industrial, energy and transport systems and whole way of life,” he added, calling for a “dramatic increase” in commitments at the COP26 conference beginning on Sunday.
The Scottish city of Glasgow was putting on the final touches before hosting the climate talks, which may be the world’s last best chance to cap global warming at the 1.5-2 degrees Celsius upper limit set out in the Paris Agreement.
The stakes for the planet are huge – among them the impact on economic livelihoods the world over and the future stability of the global financial system.
Saudi Arabia’s crown prince said on Saturday that the world’s top oil exporter aims to reach “net zero” emissions of greenhouse gases, mostly produced by burning fossil fuels, by 2060 – 10 years later than the United States.
He also said it would double the emissions cuts it plans to achieve by 2030.
Australia’s cabinet was expected to formally adopt a target for net zero emissions by 2050 when it meets on Monday to review a deal reached between parties in Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s coalition government, official sources told Reuters.
Democracy destroying republicans don’t give a crap.
The Animal Farm reference is very appropriate.
Except in this case, the crucifixion has already happened.
I see that this is a take off from Da Vinci’s The Last Supper… with dogs. I believe that the artist’s intent is to point out that the folks at the conference all have masters other than Gaia… who’s the Christ figure here.
Have you see the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts?
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts
To play around in
