The Glasgow Climate Pact, the final draft from the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26), was passed by almost 200 countries on Saturday as negotiations went past the Friday closing of the conference. The final text included language to reduce the use of fossil fuels, phase out subsidies for fossil fuels and transition countries to using more renewable energy sources like solar and wind.
COP26 delegates agreed on a global deal to boost climate action but only after a last-minute pushback from China and India.
The agreement, known as the Glasgow Climate Pact, calls for reductions in coal and fossil fuel use and transition to renewables — a first in the more than 25-year history of UN climate talks.
What people are saying?
Pat(rick) Boorman Important to fast track sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels because no sense to deprive ourselves until have sustainable alternatives!-Hydrogen & recently announced Rolls Royce modules. But why did Germany close its nuclear capacity?- hopefully will buy our new modules.
Basil The world population is growing, as it grows more resources are needed. Politics, religion, greed and ignorance will without doubt push our world to irreversible destruction. We needed action 30 years ago.
