COP26 ended on November 12th. The conference delegates adopted a resolution following the discussions.
Swedish eco-activist Greta Thunberg criticized the results of the 26th UN Climate Conference in Glasgow. In her opinion, the delegates of COP26 did not come to anything significant.
Thunberg, on her Twitter account, described the decisions of the Conference with the phrase “blah blah blah.” In the same tweet, she announced her intention to continue working on climate change issues.
The UN conference was held from October 31 to November 12. Even before it began, Greta Thunberg urged supporters to stage protests in Glasgow, drawing attention to climate issues.
The ecoactivist takes the position that COP26 delegates do not understand the importance of the issue under discussion. She believes that the conference participants only pretend that they are interested in the climate problem.
The #COP26 is over. Here’s a brief summary: Blah, blah, blah.
But the real work continues outside these halls. And we will never give up, ever. https://t.co/EOne9OogiR— Greta Thunberg (@GretaThunberg) November 13, 2021
On the evening of November 13, the delegates agreed on the text of the final statement, as reported by the chairman of the conference, Alok Sharma. Previously, he was criticized by UN Secretary General António Guterres.
Sharma said that the discussion was not easy. However, the conference participants still managed to amend the text of the statement and agree on it. A written version of it will be available soon.
So far, it is known that the delegates have agreed on the rules for the implementation of the sixth article of the Paris Climate Agreement. It touches on non-market approaches to the climate issue, as well as the mechanisms for trading the results of emission reductions.
The draft statement referred to an increase in the rate of decarbonization. Also, the delegates agreed that it is worth setting a limit on the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees from pre-industrial values.
It is said that such a limitation will require an immediate reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. By 2030, the production of carbon dioxide should be reduced by 45% compared to 2010 figures.
