On the Sidelines of the G7 Summit…
The House of Windsor Pushes Green Finance. The G7 summit in Cornwall, England, provided a useful venue for senior members of the Royal Family, including the Queen, to put in a highly mediatized appearance on June 11, and for Prince Charles to seek a private meeting with President Joe Biden, as well as to organize an event at his Eden Project.
The Eden Project is home to the largest indoor rainforest in the world, housed in giant bio-domes, to which Charles invited G7 leaders and business CEOs for a reception and a discussion of the climate crisis and the loss of biodiversity.
One day earlier, the Prince, who has made “saving the environment” and thereby depopulating the world his personal crusade, had hosted at St. James Palace a meeting of the Sustainable Markets Initiative. Attending were President Biden’s climate czar John Kerry as well as the CEOs of major global businesses, which collectively manage over $60 trillion worth of assets.
These are the financiers who are key to the “great reset” and other green financial swindles. They included the heads of HSBC, NatWest, State Street, EY, and AstraZeneca among others.
Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan called the meeting “an important next step to help drive sustainable finance.” Charles’s message to the global CEOs was that they have a “game-changing opportunity to drive forward the partnerships between government, business and private sector finance” to tackle climate change, which, in his view, is a more urgent problem than fighting the pandemic (in particular in poor countries).
G7 Leaders Memorial: Garbage in, Garbage out. A rather ambiguous work of art was devoted to the world leaders meeting in Cornwall. Taking off of the colossal Mount Rushmore sculptures in granite of the heads of four U.S. Presidents, a group of “artists” erected just across the bay from the meeting place, a monument with the heads of the G7 leaders – entirely made of electronic waste! Each head is 1 meter wide and 3 meters high, with the entire monument made of 12 tons of e-waste (discarded iPhones, televisions, circuit boards, etc.)
The purpose was apparently to urge the heads of state and government to promote more environment-friendly products, but many saw it as an unflattering reminder that they may well end up in the garbage bins of history!
The “monument”, which can be viewed everywhere on In ternet, was named “Mount Recyclemore”. In all fairness to the artists, the resemblances are not so bad…
