200 Countries Agree to Glasgow Climate Pact

COP twenty-six has concluded and reports out of Glasgow Scotland are that nearly two hundred countries have agreed to the Glasgow Climate Pact to keep one point five degrees Celsius alive, and to finalize the outstanding elements of the Paris Agreement. According to a release from the British High Commission Belmopan, climate negotiators ended the two weeks of talks with a consensus on urgently accelerating climate action. At the end of COP twenty-six, there is hope that the Glasgow Climate Pact and increased ambition and actions from countries mean one point five degrees Celsius remains in sight.  Within the Glasgow Climate Pact, countries agreed to revisit and strengthen their current emissions targets to 2030, known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), in 2022. Additionally, the Paris Rulebook, the guidelines for how the Paris Agreement is delivered, was also completed after six years of discussions. News Five’s Duane Moody will have a round-up of COP twenty-six later this week.
