COP24: Will the climate pact have real impact? | Al Jazeera English



Nearly 200 nations overcame political divisions on Saturday to agree on rules for implementing a landmark global climate deal, but plans for more ambitious climate pledges have been shelved for the future.
After two weeks of talks in the Polish city of Katowice, officials from around the world finally reached a consensus on a more detailed framework for the 2015 Paris Agreement which aims to limit a rise in average world temperatures to “well below” two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
The agreement established a framework for how CO2 emissions would be measured and reported.
It is not an insignificant step towards meeting the 2015 pledges, but climate scientists worry that the existing pledges do not go far enough to combat global warming and worldwide CO2 emissions are up for the second year in a row.

  1. That's except US, the only warmonger mega-loser… an anti-human and anti-life.

  2. Soo this Paris Accord BS. Why doesn't China and India (the largest polluters in the world) have to follow the laws? Well not until 2030 anyways.

  3. I like how they forget to add the effects of weapons testing from world governments wether it is biological, chemical, or thermonuclear….no it’s all my fault for driving a car too much…, and yet my requests for weapons testing statistics has still fallen on deaf ears, the governments need to grow up before they tell their constituents how to live.

  4. We’ve been told over and over we are at a critical point in the history of the human race.
    So China starts mining coal,England start fracking which is causing tremors.
    The technology is there to stop all this but cash rules everything.
    Do we really deserve saving?

  5. this is the last century we are living in
