Um, hate to break it to ya, but divine intervention will not save us from global warming. WE must intervene.
I support Tabulu. I signed an international climate treaty.
Considering who you're going against, a combination of a theocracy and offbrand dictatorship, and a nation named after a rock, I think you're in the good. Also, you're language, does it have any roots in irl Oceanic languages or are you conlanging with no irl basis.
The language shares the same basic sounds as Oceanic ones, as well as some basic grammatical syntax, but not a ton. This is more or less something I'm building from the ground up

Bakterland Governor blasted for Social Media comments
Today, the Governor of the Bakterland Province, Stephen Preiszner, received more than a fair share of social media's attention. In a post on his Plakatwand social media account, Governor Preiszner posted a statement that basically said the government should round up all LGBQT+ people in the nation and ship them off to Hadian or Vultesia. This has led to massive backlash towards the governor, with many LGBQT+ activists and left-leaning senators calling for his removal. It is expected protests will begin to pop up within the next few days.

Most of my cars are powered by liquid hydrogen
Battery power - too expensive in terms of rare earth minerals
Solar - unreliable in energy generation and costs too much in terms of rare earth minerals as well
Actually 71% of Wellsenfaile electricity comes from renewable sources and considering Wellsenfaile has a population of about ~90 million it is a pretty big achievement. We also have reduced the number of cars being sold, have a national railway system which about 11 million people use daily, and have made not petrol cars cheaper
Marlenka gets most of its power from Hydroelectric Dams and Nuclear-powerplants, that only fail ONCE in blue moon.
In case of emergency, we use 100,000 indoctrinated horny young males kidnapped from around the world to use in our giant human hamster wheel power generator.
Emergency Diesel/Coal plants/Other renewable sources.
I'd like to point out that LIQUID hydrogen is extremely unrealistic in terms of modern tech. It would have to be stored at very low temps not feasible for car storage. What all hydrogen cars use IRL is COMPRESSED hydrogen, which is gaseous and not a liquid and very much at room temperature. Also, would like to point out industrial-scale production of hydrogen car fuel is much more expensive than batteries would be, and a battery is an investment that lasts you for years, while you need to fuel up on hydrogen just as much as a gas car, but with really expensive fuel.
