The Copenhagen climate talks in Glasgow have come to an end, but the hammer has fallen on the Glasgow climate agreement agreed between all 197 countries.
Furthermore, it opens the door to demand further NDC updates beginning in 2022 to boost ambition in this decade.
The Paris accord says temperatures should be kept at “well below” pre-industrial levels of 2C, and that countries should “well below” to limit warming to 1.5C.
The Glasgow climate change pact is a step-by-step advance not the breakthrough that is required to curb the worst effects of climate change.
The Glasgow Climate Pact says that the use of undiminished coal and fossil fuel subsidies should also be phased out accordingly.
Global warming around 2.4 ° C is even a long way from 1.5 ° C.
Expect more measures to fund fossil fuel projects, as campaigners try to cut emissions by starving the capital industry.
The largest and worst loopholes to have been closed, but there is still scope for countries and businesses to try to manipulate the system.
