Description

In British English "nought" is also used and in American English "naught" is used occasionally for zero, but (as with British English) "naught" is more often used as an archaic word for nothing.

This book is written from the point of view of an angry british businessman who can see through the propaganda related the the "bad CO2" narrative and who is particularly upset by the irrational decision of the UK government to make a legally binding promise of making Britain a "zero carbon" state by a fixed date, 2050. It is a major driver of deforestation, and the resulting destruction of ecological barriers and buffers probably contributed to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the Canterbury Commitment in 2011, Quaker meetings have been grappling with how to reduce their own carbon emissions and take action on the climate crisis. During the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, all nations agreed to stabilise concentrations of greenhouse gases to ensure that they did not produce dangerous interference with the climate. This leads to the year 1904 ('04) being spoken as "[nineteen] aught four" or "[nineteen] nought four".

Estimates of the amount of land required are as high as 3000 million hectares – twice the total amount of land currently under cultivation globally. Hence in computer science a zero represents the outcome of a mathematical computation such as 2−2, while null is used for an undefined state (for example, a memory location that has not been explicitly initialised). Climate-geoengineering technologies such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) or direct air capture (DAC) are highly risky and unproven – in particular at climate-relevant scales – and could have potentially devastating consequences for people and ecosystems.

Regulators, voluntary initiatives and companies must place a renewed and urgent focus on the integrity of companies’ emission reduction plans up to 2030. When purchasing carbon credits, these corporations need to accurately communicate to consumers what this action truly amounts to: a contribution, or a donation, to a mitigation project and not a neutralisation of emissions.
