London, 15 November (EFE). British Prime Minister Boris Johnson highlighted to business leaders on Monday remaining efforts to tackle climate change and that the COP26 summit in Glasgow represented a “road map” to tackle this crisis.
Addressing businessmen and diplomats at a dinner in the Guildhall Building in the City of London (the financial centre), Johnson pondered the work left to curb global warming in the next decade.
“Saturday night, after years and months of work, the nations of the earth came together and drafted the Glasgow Climate Pact,” Johnson said of the agreement at the COP26 summit.
“Glasgow will not stop climate change, and Glasgow will not prevent the global warming that is happening now, but Glasgow can still help us stop this warming,” he stressed.
The head of the conservative government stressed that what was achieved is a detailed “road map”, recalling the data that show what is happening: “storms, floods, fires.”
Johnson, whose country holds the presidency of the COP until next year, pointed to the importance of building on the basis of the Glasgow Agreement, which calls on countries to do more next year in the face of the climate crisis.
He insisted, “We will support more ambitious goals and stronger plans” and “work with our partners around the world. We will work tirelessly.”
World leaders agreed a deal at a summit on Saturday to keep the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees by 2100 from pre-industrial levels.
