Guest essay by Eric Waral

According to the BBC, G20 countries are paying very little lip service for climate targets, and scrambling to restart the global economy is driving increased coal use.

Climate change: Carbon emissions from developed countries increased rapidly in 2021

Matt McGrath

Carbon emissions are recovering significantly, increasing in the 20 wealthiest countries in the world, according to a new study.

NS Climate Transparency Report CO2 declined 6% in 2020 due to a pandemic, but said it would increase 4% across the G20 group this year.

China, India and Argentina are set to exceed 2019 emission levels.

The authors state that continued use of fossil fuels has undermined efforts to control temperatures.

The G20 Group accounts for about 75% of global emissions, but fell sharply last year due to the economic closure in response to Covid-19.

But this year’s rebound is supported by fossil fuels, especially coal.

This is mainly due to China, which is responsible for about 60% of the rise, Coal growth is also happening in the United States and India.

I don’t think COP26 will be the last global climate conference. The charade will stumble for a few more years. How can Biden and Kelly demand sacrifices from other countries when coal use is increasing in the United States? The whole process is more than a joke.
