After the conference in Glasgow, the President of COP26, Alok Sharma, fought disappointed with tears over the lack of progress at the climate crisis summit.
“I am deeply sorry,” he said after COP26 failed to deliver on the certain concrete promises that many of the world wanted, but world leaders failed.
This came after it was revealed that over 503 people with fossil fuel links were accredited for the climate summit.
The largest delegation of the entire event.
“Your influence is one of the main reasons why 25 years of UN climate talks have not resulted in any real reduction in global emissions,” said Murray Worthy of Global Witness.
When the nations wanted to agree on a commitment to “phase out” the use of coal, India watered down the phrase “phase out”, which was first coined by China.
Regarding the disappointing result, Sharma said: “China and India will have to explain to themselves and what they have done to the most climate-threatened countries in the world.”
One of them is India.
This makes the COP27 even more important in reversing the climate crisis and saving millions from emissions-related famines, floods and forest fires.
