US climate envoy says many countries have very aggressively increased their ambition
Is John Kerry’s comment totally correct or is he just trying to put a good spin on the outcome of Cop26.
I say this as Cop26 promised so much more and could easily have not produced anything.
For the last minute intervention of India and China could well have meant that there was no good outcome from Cop26, even though there was a good outcome, the outcome could have been much better, if the Indian and Chinese intervention had not been made.
Even with the reduced outcome, it is still good, but not as good as it could have been, so we are not as close to avoiding Climate chaos as we could have been and all this assumes that every country will do as they promised, which has not been so with past Cops. Why not put penalty clauses in the outcomes, so that if any country fails to do as they promised then they would have to pay severe penalties. But then one may not get any promises.
For there is still a very long way to go and the time is running very short.
Would Trump have pulled out of the Paris Accord if there was a penalty to be paid for doing so, well with Trump, well he could still well have done so because, according to him, he does no wrong, for Trump Word is law, who said so, well Trump himself believed that, for according to him he was the best president ever, what a moron!!
But climate change is very serious and many countries could well disappear, if more is not done and done quickly, especially Great Abaco of the Abaco Islands Bahamas.
We all need to do more, everyone one of us.
