Glasgow Climate Summit Participants Adopt Softened Convention


On Saturday night, a line was drawn under the two-week COP26 climate summit in Glasgow. The final agreement, adopted by the participating countries, sets the goal for states to reduce the use of fossil fuels and help less wealthy countries to do so. The adoption of the framework convention was complicated by the fact that at the last moment the large coal economies, led by India, protested.

Conflicting sentiment prevailed at the COP26 summit in Glasgow on Saturday night. On the one hand, it was achieved agreement, according to which countries are obliged to limit global warming to 1.5 OC compared to pre-industrial level (current: 1.1 OWITH). On the other hand, most of the nearly 200 participating delegations would like to see an even more ambitious climate rescue program, informs Reuters. The goal agreed by the countries at the summit is the same as in the 2015 Paris Agreement. According to recent analysis Climate Action Tracker agencies, if countries stick to their current promises, they will still not be able to keep the warming within the required 1.5 OC, and the climate in this century will warm by 2.4 OC. Therefore, all countries should reconsider their goals, the analysis says.
