Officials worry COP26 climate conference is at "high risk of failure"

Comments Off on Officials worry COP26 climate conference is at "high risk of failure"

The highly anticipated U.N. climate conference COP26 is at “high risk of failure,” according to U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres. Planned to take place this November in Glasgow , COP26 intends to bring together global leaders to address the climate crisis. However, mistrust and lack of commitment may hinder meaningful progress. While addressing the press in New York on Wednesday, Guterres spoke on his concerns. “I believe that we are at risk of not having a success in COP26,” Guterres said. “There is still a level of mistrust, between north and south, developed and developing countries, that needs to be overcome.” Related: Related: Failing to curb emissions puts Earth on “catastrophic pathway” Guterres says that the world must seriously think about the next step towards salvaging the climate . In a bid to bring more people on board, Guterres has been meeting with global leaders in preparation for COP26. “We are on the verge of the abyss and when you are on the verge of the abyss, you need to be very careful about what the next step is. And the next step is COP26 in Glasgow,” Guterres said. Developed countries have been called out for their lack of commitment to climate promises. Although most have pledged to address the issue, actions have been slow. Developing countries, which often experience the worst of climate change’s effects despite contributing to it the least, want wealthier nations to uphold their commitments. “We need the developed countries to do more, namely in relation to the support to developing countries. And we need some emerging economies to go an extra mile and be more ambitious in the reduction of air emissions ,” Guterres said. Scientists have warned that the world is doing little to mitigate climate change. Recent studies have shown that global warming might drive temperatures above 1.5 degrees Celsius in about two decades unless serious action is taken to deal with the emission problem.
