Back when the conference started, global warming was an issue, but not an entirely pressing one.
Fast forward to today and we are starting to see everyday signs of global warming being a top priority – be it wildfires in Russia, Australia, and California, drastic floods in the Indian Subcontinent, or huge hurricanes that batter continental America.
The conference has significant status as the world’s summit for climate change. In fact, at the last summit in Paris 2015, the Paris agreement was created. This agreement is still in effect today and has seen 196 nations agree to limit global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius.
Elements of the original agreement will be debated, the progress of nations will be assessed, and new agreements or plans will be agreed upon to continually tackle climate change.
The overarching goal of COP26 is to reach a global net zero by 2050 and keep the optimal target of 1.5 degrees Celsius of global warming achievable.
It is also a crucial summit as it helps developing countries secure the finance and aid that they need to contribute to a reduction of global warming.
Global warming feels like a huge, insurmountable problem for the individual. How can anyone hope to make a dent or solve the problem? Global warming came to be with human beings acting as communities and nations – unintentionally warming the globe with industry.
We can combat it by doing the same, working together as a community and as a nation.
