Years before anybody had heard of Swedish school girl Greta Thunberg and her mission for climate action, Crown Prince Charles with the Bank of England and City of London finance were already redirecting pension plans and mutual funds towards green projects.
A key player in linking world financial institutions with the Green Agenda is outgoing Bank of England governor Mark Carney. In December 2015, the Bank for International Settlements’ Financial Stability Board (FSB), chaired by Carney, created the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD), to advise “investors, lenders and insurance about climate related risks
In 2016, the TCFD with the City of London Corporation and UK Government initiated the Green Finance Initiative to channel trillions of dollars to “green investments”. The TCFD is chaired by multibillionaire former Mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg, it includes people from BlackRock; JP MorganChase; Barclays Bank; HSBC; Swiss Re; China’s ICBC bank; Tata Steel, ENI oil, Dow Chemical; mining giant BHP Billington; David Blood of Al Gore’s Generation Investment LLC (formerly of Goldman Sachs).
Of course they needed a representative kid to promote their agenda…
Greta Thunberg is part of the network tied to the organisation of Al Gore’s partner, David Blood. Greta Thunberg and her 17-year-old US climate friend Jamie Margolin were both listed as “special youth advisor and trustee” of the Swedish We Don’t Have Time NGO, founded in late 2017 by Ingmar Rentzhog.
Rentzhog is a member of both Al Gore’s Climate Reality Organization Leaders and the European Climate Policy Task Force. Rentzhog made his money as the founder of investment company Laika Consulting and his chief operating officer, David Olsson, worked at one of Sweden's biggest property funds Svenska Bostadsfonden, whose board Rentzhog joined in June 2017.
In February 2019, in a blatant publicity stunt, after meeting Greta, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker proposed that between 2021 and 2027, “every fourth euro spent within the EU budget go toward action to mitigate climate change
This decision had nothing to do with Greta’s plea; it was made months earlier on 26 September 2018 at the One Planet Summit, along with the World Bank, Bloomberg Foundations, the World Economic Forum and others.
On 17 October 2018, weeks after the previous decision was made, Juncker announced that Breakthrough Energy will have preferential access to funding…
Members of Breakthrough Energy include Virgin Air’s Richard Branson (the good friend of Ghislaine Maxwell and NXIVM); Bill Gates; David Rubenstein (founder of the Bush-linked Carlyle); and George Soros: https://www.globalresearch.ca/climate-mo...il/5690209
In July 2019, outgoing UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond wrote that the TCFD “has been endorsed by institutions representing $118 trillion of assets globally
