The COP27 climate conference ended in Egypt today with a landmark agreement to compensate poorer countries that are the victims of climate change. But there was little progress in tacking emissions from burning fossil fuels, the root cause of global warming.
The Glasgow climate talks passed their deadline last night and have spilled into an extra day. A third version of the decision document was published this morning. DrillOrDrop will be reporting throughout today on what happens inside and outside the conference and what it means.
COP26 president, Alok Sharma, told a review session this morning there was “still a lot more work to be done”. He said ministers had to “dial up” their engagement if the talks were to finish on time at the end of tomorrow (12/11/21).
The first version of the COP26 climate agreement was published this morning with calls for countries to do more to cut carbon emissions.
The organiser of the COP26 conference in Glasgow was condemned today of failing to address the root issues of climate crisis.
