Climate Pledges Are Falling Short, and a Chaotic Future Looks More Like Reality

At the World Climate Summit in Glasgow last year, countries pledged to redouble their efforts to cut emissions from the burning of oil, gas and coal, which is dangerously heating the planet. We also agreed to increase funding for technology to help developing countries transition from fossil fuels to wind, solar and other renewable energy sources.

The United Nations report analyzed the commitments made by countries to reduce emissions, known as nationally determined contributions, or NDCs. The 2020 conference has been postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. In 2021, countries recognized the urgency of the climate crisis, agreed not to wait another five years, and pledged to make new commitments before climate talks begin in Egypt on 7 November.

Taryn Fransen, a senior fellow at the research institute, the World Resources Institute, called the current trajectory of global warming “dangerously high.”

China, now the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases, is one of the major countries withholding new commitments after submitting new pledges ahead of last year’s summit in Scotland. China has said carbon dioxide emissions will continue to rise until he peaks by 2030, but has not set targets to reduce other greenhouse gases such as methane.

Last year, China said it would stop building coal-fired power plants abroad. As of August, 26 of the 104 projects have been shelved, preventing 85 million tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere each year. Energy and Clean Air Research Center.

An analysis by the World Resources Institute found that limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius would require a reduction of six times that amount, or 43 percent. Gas emissions were found to be reduced by approximately 7% from 2019 levels. .

“Among the major economies, several countries have renewed their commitments this year. India has formalized its pledges. Australia renewed them when a new government took office. “But each of these countries has so far failed to renew their NDCs, making up for lost time.”
