“Looking at these new commitments, obviously, it’s the mountain that gave birth to a rat.”Inger Anderson, Managing Director of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), responded vehemently that the industry was far from the objectives of the Paris Agreement to control global warming below 1.5 ° C by 2 ° C if possible. By adding new promises of carbon neutrality, the temperature rise can be limited to 2.1 C or 0.1 C above the previous estimate.

Report of the day:

“We need climate sympathy. It may be a new word, but it needs, empathy between the North and the South and citizens. And empathy is not a pity.”

Words to understand COP26:

Adaptation

Despite the drastic reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions, human communities and regions need to adapt to the inevitable effects of global warming. Measures to control their effects affect all areas: Protection of coastal areas Threat of drowning Economic management of water resources, New Agricultural practices And forestry, storm warning systems, “Fixed” cities

Some countries have adopted national climate change adaptation programs. But, anyway, the planet will not avoid major crises and massive flows Climate refugees (From island states affected by major oceans or drought-prone areas), especially southern countries, are the most threatened and impoverished, with very little to no implementation of ‘adaptation’ policies.

Number:

1 million

This is the number of endangered species of animals and plants in the coming years from the surface of the earth and the oceans. This dangerous observation is the basis of a more than 1,700-page report, the result of three years of research by hundreds of experts on global biodiversity. According to this study, it makes up 75% of the Earth’s environment “Severe defect”. A further 66% of the marine environment is affected. In this catastrophe, the responsibility of human beings is immense. To Franck Courchamp, an ecologist and researcher at CNRS, however, all is not lost. States must take the necessary steps immediately, and citizens must change their behavior.
