Developed countries have never taken actions when it comes to rising to the challenges of Climate change. “COP26 is a failure » Thunberg said.
« It should be obvious that we cannot solve the crisis with the same methods that got us into it in the first place,” Greta added. Since the first Conference of Parties in 1998, developed countries have been waffling over their unreel ambitions to put an end to climate change. In fact, they have always put the blame on underdeveloped countries where as they are the ones with the highest emission rates of CO2. For instance, China, United States, Russia , Germany and Japan are ranked first in Carbon dioxide emissions from the combustion of coal, natural gaz, oil, and other fuels, including industrial waste and no-renewable municipal waste.
I have real sympathy with less developed countries that feel it’s for the developed industrial nations to help sort out a problem largely of their makingAlok Sharma – COP president-Designate
All the above things considered, and ironically speaking, one of the major goals of the actual COP 26 which will take place on November 12th is to secure global net Zero by mi-century and keep 1.5 degrees within reach. In addition, developed countries think they should protect communities and natural habitats from the devastating effects of climate change, where as they are the most responsible for causing it. In other words, they think that by enabling and encouraging countries affected by climate change to protect and restore their ecosystems, build their defenses, and make their infrastructure and agriculture more resistance is the solution.
We must push for all countries to have National adaptation Plans in place and to produce Adaptation Communications sharing best practice to help ambition into actionAnne-Marie Trevelyan – UK International Champion on Adaptation and Resilience for the COP26 Presidency
Consequently, developed countries should put forward their responsibility in CO2 dioxide emission in comparison to under developed countries rather than prioritizing the fact of mobilizing finances to 100 billion per year.
One true and feasible goal set by the COP 26 president is the working together part. All countries without exception should unite to rise to the challenges of climate change by accelerating collaboration and cooperation between their governments, their businesses and their civil society.
