News from the Natural World: Fossil fuel lobbyist has broken down in utter despair after missing COP26. COP26 is the most important conference for the human race. It’s all been building up to the big one and hype has been spiralling out of control. Many argue that this is the single biggest chance humans have to avoid a cataclysmic swing to green energy and move away from fossil fuels altogether. With all leaders and billionaires present, there is a real risk that humans could actually do something to move away from fossil fuels and build a future on more renewable sources of energy. This risk must be avoided at all costs say the fossil fuel lobbyists and COP26 is the real crunch moment where the fossil fuel industry has to truly put its money where its mouth is and drown out all the voices crying for positive change. But this gravitas has caused trouble in the fossil fuel lobbying world. COP26 has become so important that it has almost reached mythical proportions with lobbyists earlier this week, like Patrick Batemen, insisting that anyone who was anyone in the lobbying industry was there. If you weren’t there then many doubted your commitment to the lobbying cause. But one lobbyist has been unable to attend and was left devastated; “I thought it was just a little sniffle at first. I was like there is no way I could get ill just as COP26 was about to begin. I’ve been preparing for it all my life. It’s the dream of any fossil fuel lobbyist to successfully avert positive change at the crunch moment. I’ve dreamed of this moment. So to get ill just before has left me reeling. I really hope everyone can understand just how upset any fossil fuel lobbyist would be to miss out on COP26.”
