What’s new at the UN Climate Change Summit COP26 in Glasgow?

Glasgow, Scotland — Hundreds of environmental activists have gathered in Glasgow Park to call on the government to step up its actions against global warming at the nearby United Nations Climate Change Conference.

At the rally on Friday, most of the activists were young and put up banners with slogans such as “I have to get rid of my mess. Would you like to get rid of my mess?” “Stop climate crime.”

“My greatest fear is losing the country,” said Brianna Fruane, a 23-year-old activist from Samoa. Samao, a lowland Pacific island nation, is particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels and cyclones.

Urge to invest in development of cleaner technologies

A major shipping company urged the government on Friday to invest more in research and development of cleaner technologies that will help the industry reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The International Chamber of Shipping said the industry is not on track to achieve its current policy of reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.

Wealthiest people in the world generate most of their GHG

Poverty Eradication Charity Oxfam states that the wealthiest people in the world continue to generate most of their greenhouse gas emissions.

A study published Friday beside the United Nations Climate Summit in Glasgow concluded that the wealthiest 1% of the planet’s population is expected to account for 16% of global emissions by 2030. ..

In this study commissioned by Oxfam, each of the wealthiest 1% of members is considered to meet the goal of curbing global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). I calculated that it would emit twice as much.

Meanwhile, the poorest 50% on the planet will continue to emit less than per capita emissions by 2030.

Oxfam said the study shows that a small elite of ultra-rich people “seems to have a free pass to contaminate.”

Nafcourt Davi, Head of Climate Policy at Oxfam, said:

Dabi added that emissions caused by only the wealthiest 10% could fail to reach the 1.5C target by the end of the decade.

The study was written by Tim Gore, a non-profit European Institute for Environmental Policy. He suggested that measures were needed to limit carbon emissions from luxury consumption such as mega yachts, private jets and space travel.

Glasgow, Scotland-Environmental activists have awarded the Polish government a “fossil award” for giving a pledge to accelerate the phasing out of coal-fired power and for apparently turning back.

Climate Action Network, a group of hundreds of non-governmental organizations, blew up Poland for promising to stop using coal at the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow on Thursday, but later in poor countries. Declared yes and stuck to the previous deadline of 2049.
