British editorial: The results of climate conference exceed expected coal power generation days

On November 16th, the British "Times" issued on November 15th is the editorial "View on the COP26 Conference: Good": The full text is as follows: "The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference Parties (COP26 )achieved success. This is the first time to mention the need to end the world’s dependence on coal in the climate convention.

The 20th Group has promised to stop providing funds for new overseas coal power stations on the eve of this session. This is a major progress.

Only this point can be made to ensure the number of coal power generation.

In addition, three main reasons are encouraged to encourage the results of the meeting.

First, it puts forward many new national commitments and multilateral protocols to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

This includes an agreement to stop deforestation and reduce methane emissions.

As a result, about 90% of the global economy is covered with net emission targets, which is only 30% a year ago. Climate Analyst estimates that if all of these commitments are fulfilled, the average temperature rise rate may be controlled within a higher level of the industrial revolution.

This is still higher than the degrees Celsius required to avoid catastrophic consequences. But this goal is not completely impossible. The second reason for the results of the conference is that it introduces a new ratchet system, requiring countries to honor more ambitious commitments in front of the Egyptian conference next year, rather than the previous timetable for 2025.

Once the current energy supply crisis ends, the economic recovery after the big epidemic is more powerful, and some countries may prepare more ambitious goals.

Once the current energy supply crisis ends, the economic recovery after the big epidemic is more powerful, and some countries may prepare more ambitious goals. Of course, it is not guaranteed that this one of them has been weakened.

However, the third reason for the optimistic is that in addition to the official delegation, the global concerns of COP26 and the public participation should ensure that all governments will face greater political pressure, requiring their actions to limit global warming. At the same time, important measures have been taken to establish a new mechanism to help developing countries transition to clean energy.

According to an agreement, the United States, the European Union and the United Kingdom will provide a discount of 8.3 billion pounds (£ 1 £ 1 RMB Renminbi Net), helping South Africa to get rid of the dependence on coal. This provides a wide range of outlooks that can be extended to other countries.
