A new reminder to act against climate change. The report of the United Nations Climate Experts (IPCC) was announced on Monday, August 9 ‘Strongest warning ever’ On the role of human behavior in global warming, this was stated by COP26 President Alok Sharma on Sunday, August 8.
The report shows that “Human behavior alarmingly accelerating global warming”, the British minister said in Interview observer (article in English), Sunday edition of guardian, insisting on the critical nature of the major climate conference scheduled for November in Glasgow (Scotland, UK).
“We can’t wait two years, five years, ten years”He continued, feeling that there was still time but ‘We are getting dangerously close to the moment’ Where it will be too late.
Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change “It will serve as a wake-up call for all those who do not yet understand why the next decade must be so crucial for climate action”, insists Alok Sharma, who adds that “We will also understand very clearly that human activity is causing climate change at an alarming rate.”.
COP26 failure will be “Disastrous, there is no other word”The British believe that confirms it “Last year was the hottest ever, and the last decade was the hottest ever”.
The consequences of global warming are already clear, he said, citing floods in Europe and China, Wildfires, record temperatures we’ve seen in North America. “Every day we will see a new record set in one way or another in the world”, he added.
Despite his apparent concerns about climate change, the British minister defended the UK’s controversial plan to allow more gas and oil exploration. That’s while the International Energy Agency warned in May that the world should immediately abandon any new oil or gas project if it still wanted to be able to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
Alok Sharma said these projects must comply with the UK’s legal obligation to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Suspended in the British press for visiting 30 countries in seven months, some of which are marked in red by the UK due to their health status due to the coronavirus, Alok Sharma insisted on the essential and decisive character of in-person meetings in such negotiations.
