Window closing’ to meet 1.5C warming target
Hello everyone this is my addition to information about COP26 that started today in Glasgow. Ivan
The window to keep within the 1.5 degree warming target is closing, COP26 president Alok Sharma has warned the climate summit in Glasgow.
“We know our shared planet is changing for the worse, and we can only address that together,” said Mr Sharma.
COP26 climate summit – The basics
• Climate change is one of the world’s most pressing problems. Governments must promise more ambitious cuts in warming gases if we are to prevent greater global temperature rises.
• The summit in Glasgow is where change could happen. You need to watch for the promises made by the world’s biggest polluters, like the US and China, and whether poorer countries are getting the support they need.
• All our lives will change. Decisions made here could impact our jobs, how we heat our homes, what we eat and how we travel.
