As host of the next world climate summit, the UK has urged China to come up with concrete plans to reduce its climate-damaging emissions. “There is no doubt that China will be the key to all of this. They are the biggest emitters (of greenhouse gases) in the world,” Alok Sharma, elected president of the COP26 conference, said on Sky News on Sunday.
The Chinese will have to follow up on previous declarations of intent with more detailed measures. “The ball is in your field.” According to Sharma, it is still not clear whether Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend the November conference in Glasgow.
Critics see China’s constructive partnership as a far cry from the recent security partnership between Great Britain and the United States and Australia. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that he will campaign for more joint efforts to protect the climate during an upcoming visit to the United States.
According to the Paris Agreement, all states are called upon to submit their contribution to climate protection to the United Nations before the summit in Scotland. According to the latest information from the United Nations, the world is currently moving towards 2.7 degree global warming. UN chief Antonio Guterres criticized a few days ago, “It breaks a promise made six years ago to advance the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement.”
