The irony is deafening. Is that a 747?

The irony is double deafening. Japan rakes 2 planes overseas overseas on official trips.

Off he goes again! See you! Never in the country long enough to unpack his suitcase.

Kind of pointless trip though, this time, as above posters pointed out, he’s contributing to the death of the planet in order to attend a meeting to discuss doing something about not killing the planet.

The main purpose of the COP28 is for the UAE to strike new oil deals, especially with countries like Japan who have no oil of their own.

Climate meeting or oil deal meeting, we know why you are there Fumio.

Kishida has expressed eagerness to encourage COP28 participants to make more efforts to accomplish the goals outlined in the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement.

Maybe he should encourage his LDP cronies to make more efforts and stop creating scandals and embezzling money, instead?

"I would like to demonstrate Japan's determination to take a leading role in Asia" to realize carbon neutrality, Kishida told reporters at his office before leaving Tokyo for Dubai.

How?

By taking an endless amount of unnecessary flights around the world?

Never in the country long enough to unpack his suitcase.

Sometimes I wonder if people are aware that the Prime Minister's Office meticulously lists all his overseas travels, and one can actually look up how many days he spent abroad.

Up until now, in 2023, including this trip to COP28, it was 44 days.

Nowadays it's a 777, but the irony's just as loud.

"I would like to demonstrate Japan's determination to take a leading role in Asia" to realize carbon neutrality, Kishida told reporters at his office before leaving Tokyo for Dubai.

The hot air coming out of Kishida’s mouth is definitely warming the planet at an alarming rate!

Carbon neutrality is a load of manure anyway. Kishida is probably paying lip service to it all but in reality will likely treat it with the contempt it deserves when he gets home.

All talk no action, at the least talks are done remotely ... Um wait
