CoP26: Johnson admits ‘streak of disappointment’

LONDON, NOV 14 – CoP26 in Glasgow was overall a success and produced a historic agreement, but “tinged with disappointment” due to the watering down of the final text on the reduction (no longer the elimination) of coal and on other points. This was admitted by Boris Johnson, on behalf of the British presidency, at a briefing in Downing Street. Moreover, the premier noted that the host country can do a work of “persuasion”, not “force sovereign states”. He added that global warming remains largely “excessive” and warned that it is now the “total” responsibility of the government to comply with emissions commitments. (HANDLE).
