Long climate talks: Observers blame G20 countries for not having better results in climate talks in Madrid (Spain)UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said- the international community lost an important opportunity to deal with the climate crisis.
The longest talks on climate ended on Sunday without any agreement on the carbon market. Representatives from around 200 countries failed to reach a consensus on the goal of cutting greenhouse gases to meet the terms of the 2015 Paris Agreement. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed disappointment about this. He said- I am deeply saddened by the result of COP 25. The international community lost an important opportunity to deal with the climate crisis..
The talks lasted for about two weeks. Under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement of 2015, countries had agreed to create a global carbon market system, so that the economies of developed countries could be improved at a lower cost. However, many countries tried to follow this system and were unsuccessful. Despite the longest discussion at the 25 annual conferences, the most important issue was left for next year’s conference in Glasgow.
‘Need to cut maximum carbon emissions globally’
Many environmental groups and activists accused the world’s rich countries of not showing commitment to a serious issue like climate change. Guterres said, “We must not give up and I will not give up.” Some countries have come together to negotiate this year to reach the Paris Agreement. The European Union has also agreed to its long-term goal of reaching zero carbon emissions by 2050. Experts say that the Paris Agreement requires more and more carbon emission reductions globally.
‘World’s largest carbon emitting country disappears from agreement’
According to the Paris Agreement, the US and other countries were to reduce the rising global temperature by 2 ° C. Observers blamed the G-20 countries for not having better results in Madrid.
Alden Meyer, policy director of the Scientific Association, said that most of the nearly 70 countries that have shown sensitivity to climate have come forward to fulfill the Paris Agreements. But the world’s largest carbon emitting countries are missing. They are also opposing the agreement.
According to the 2015 Paris Climate Accord
Agreement, poor and rich countries need to take action to combat climate change responsible for melting glaciers, rising sea levels. Under this, countries that emit more carbon and greenhouse gases were required to control their emissions. At the same time, developing countries had to provide financial support and infrastructure to become low carbon emitters from the beginning. The Paris Agreement was accepted in December 2015 by 195 countries of the world.
The US will
withdraw from the agreement by November 4, 2020. On November 4 this year, the United States gave the UN Secretary-General an official notice to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. It will come into effect after one year of reporting. The agreement was reached on 12 December 2015, which the US signed in 2016.
