Greta Thunberg, who dismissed the global accord reached during the United Nations “climate summit (COP26), termed Saturday’s accord” blah, blah, blah.”
Close to 200 nations on Saturday accepted a controversial climate compromise that was meant to keep a key global warming goal alive but included a last-minute amendment that watered down key language on coal.
Several countries, including small island nations, expressed deep disappointment at India ‘s recent change to discontinue instead of phasing out coal power, which has been the world ‘s largest source of greenhouse emissions.
Manjeev Puri, Distinguished Fellow, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), said there is little;”There is nothing much. There is no real commitment on part of developed countries to move ahead with serious and urgent domestic action, let alone in terms of global collaboration and truly significant climate finance for tackling climate change.”
Will contribute to our having a warm world.
Aarti Khosla, director of Climate Trends, has said that India will not slow down its growth and nutrition needs if a more conducive global ecosystem does not exist to help hasten the transition.

Indian Minister for The Environment Bhupender Yadav, who has opposed a coal phasing out rule, said developed countries “entitled to the responsible use of fossil fuels.”
The formulation is thinner than the original proposals, except that, due to a last-minute intervention on the part of India and some ineffective subsidies, the final text claims only “phase out” and not “phase out” coal.
The #COP26 is over. Here’s a brief summary: Blah, blah, blah.
But the real work continues outside these halls. And we will never give up, ever. https://t.co/EOne9OogiR

The #COP26 outcome is a compromise, reflecting the interests, contradictions & state of political will in the world today.
It's an important step, but it's not enough.
It's time to go into emergency mode.
