The United Nations Climate Change Conference is currently underway, ending on the 18th of November. Its purpose is to set an agreement on preventing global temperature increases, by discussing preventative actions.

More than 200 governments are invited to attend, however, some global representatives will not be in attendance. Most notably – several Egyptian government critics have been excluded from this event. Not only was the selection criteria made public, but many civil groups were told they were not invited in advance, and there was no available as to how to apply for attendance.

By preventing its own anti-government voices from attending, Egypt is deliberately removing some of its own voices in order to mask its own public issues with poverty and pollution, and is publicizing its false wellness through COP27.

Besides Egyptian government critics, there are several notable figures that will not be present for COP27. This includes: several Chinese leaders, climate leader Greta Thunburg, Putin, Prime Minister Albanese, and President Bolsonaro (Brazil). They are not attending for a variety of reasons, ranging from war to simple distain for the event.
