Wildfires were in Australia and California last week, people were still rescued from Hurricane Dorian in Florida and North Carolina and Australians debated actively what was needed in Venice about the death of Great Barrier Reef and Santa Marco’s Square. Those occur every week.
By the beginning of COP 26 in Glasgow, Scotland, that nation has to reduce the amount agreed in 2015 at the Conference of the Parties in Paris. The commitments under the Paris Agreement by the Member States to date are not sufficiently ambitious to limit global temperature increases to 1.5 ° C.
The good news is that in the USA and around the world national, state and local governments, companies, universities, and the religious community advise countries to meet the goals of NGO carbon by 2050.
The “loss and harm” is another important issue, and the developing countries have to tackle, but cannot bear, the damage caused by the climate crisis. For example, Kiribati, the Pacific, has already suffered as a result of the sea and has purchased land on Fiji so that they can live once in this century Kiribati becomes uninhabited.
The question of loss and damage is whether the developed countries that manufacture greenhouse gasses that cause climate change should be responsible legally for the harm suffered by the developing world.
Another problem facing COP 25 will be the allocation of money to developed worlds to help them generate renewable energy and solve the climatic crisis. Under the Paris Convention, $100 billion in funding from developed countries, several developed nations, and private sources will be raised by 2020 to allow developing countries to deal with the damage caused by this climate crisis. To achieve this goal, additional funding is still needed.
While this topic is unlikely to be on the COP 25 agenda, the elephant can be in the house. Many countries may wonder what the removal of their grandchildren might mean for the safety of the US, who will face the devastating climate crisis outcomes.
