As the world warms by 2.7°C, the UN warns hollow promises must end.
According to a report, the world is on course for a global temperature rise of 2.7°C by the end of the century, but the UN head says world leaders may still strive toward a greener future.
In his opening remarks at the launch of the Emissions Gap 2021 Report news conference on Tuesday, Antonio Guterres said, “The era of half measures and hollow promises must end.”
According to the analysis, halving yearly greenhouse gas emissions in the next eight years is required to keep global warming below 1.5°C this century, as set out in the Paris Agreement.
It comes less than a week before the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, which Guterres described as “another resounding wake-up call” for world leaders as they prepare for the event.
“Leaders must now be equally unambiguous in their behavior.” They must bring aggressive, time-bound, front-loaded proposals to Glasgow in order to achieve net-zero,” he said. “The recent IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report already demonstrated that we will not achieve a 1.5-degree future unless we reduce global carbon emissions by 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030 — 100 months from now.”
According to him, humanity’s future hinges on reducing global warming to 1.5°C by 2030.
Climate change, according to Inger Andersen, executive director of the UN Environment Programme, is no longer a “future” concern, but rather a “now” problem.
“The world must recognize the impending danger we face as a species.” We must take a firm stance. We need to move quickly. “And we need to get started right away,” she stated.
