While China is seeking to promote its new “Green Silk Road” initiative at a United Nations event, a U.S. researcher pointed out that the communist authorities were preaching hypocrisy to the world leaders.
At the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference in Egypt on November 6, China called on the world to provide aid to poorer countries.
On this occasion, John Mac Ghlionn, a researcher covering psychology and social relations, gave an analysis, calling out China’s new Silk Road as another elaborate scam.
According to Ghlionn, China is the world’s largest carbon emitter, but it has launched a hypocritical new “Green Silk Road” initiative, which was rebranded from the Belt and Road Initiative.
Ghlionn said that the communist regime is good at peddling the most outrageous lies, and the so-called “Silk Road” is another well-orchestrated hoax.
On the surface, the Belt and Road Initiative involves the construction of various infrastructure projects. But in reality, it is a tool used to coerce foreign countries.
In recent years, China has pledged to make the world a greener place. The Belt and Road Initiative is ostensibly designed to make the world a cleaner and more eco-friendly place. Underneath the hood, however, there are numerous issues, many of them deadly in nature.
For about 1,500 years, people traveled along China ‘s Silk Road. Spanning some 4,000 miles, the Silk Road was a trade route that facilitated the exchange of ideas, goods, and even slaves between East and West, and it reshaped humanity.
Fast forward to 2022, “Silk Road 2.0” emerged. Like its predecessor, it also has aspirations of reshaping humanity.
Earlier this year, China’s National Development and Reform Commission championed the idea of a Green Silk Road, outlining many ways to make the world an infinitely better place.
The commission claimed that China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), also known as One Belt, One Road, “has yielded fruitful results” and has “had a far-reaching influence upon the world since its inception.”
Now, the regime wants to add a green component to the BRI, hence the creation of this suspicious new “road.”
The new Silk Road, indeed, has been a long time in the making. In 2017, China published “Guidance on Promoting Green Belt and Road,” outlining its desire to foster eco-environment protection cooperation and exchange systems within five years.
In 2019, Chinese leader Xi Jinping declared China’s intention to launch numerous green infrastructure projects, make green investments, and provide green financing to protect the earth.
One year later, Xi announced that China would be completely carbon neutral by 2060, and hoped to have a more sustainable BRI in place by the end of the decade.
Not surprising, the Green Silk Road looks likely to be much more than just an effort to reduce carbon emissions.
According to Ghlionn, China has many things, but green is not one of them. It is the world’s biggest polluter.
China now emits more carbon emissions than the United States, India, and Russia combined. So expecting China to lead a more environmentally conscious revolution is like expecting a dog not to bark or the Jets to make the playoffs. It’s absolutely nonsensical.
There are worries about the Green Silk Road, like concerns about the BRI.
John Vidal, a renowned environmentalist, has pointed out that a number of BRI projects already push “roads and rail freight lines through some of the world’s biologically richest places.” However, those projects have impacted many critical biodiversity spots and endangered 265 threatened species.
Vidal also mentioned that a major rail line running from China to Laos resulted in deforestation and the forced eviction of thousands of families. Meanwhile, in Malaysia, road and rail projects have plowed through fragile ecosystems.
Biologist William Laurance is director of the Center for Tropical Environmental and Sustainability Science at James Cook University in Cairns, Australia.
He said that no matter what lofty promise Xi may make, the BRI will still have a major impact on ecosystems.
He said, “China has said that it will be low carbon, green, and sustainable but it is anything but that.”
Laurance warned that new roads and bridges will still destroy forests, and various transportation routes will still harm biodiversity on a grand scale.
The biologist added that though the communist regime claimed “it will follow environmental guidelines, history has shown these protections are nonexistent.
Given the communist regime’s history, one assumes that the Green Silk Road, an extension of the BRI, will bring nothing but innumerable lies, untold pain, and further acts of brutality.
Ghlionn, who also has an interest in social dysfunction and media manipulation, said that this elaborate, downright dangerous scam should be avoided by as many countries as possible.
