"Countries around the world are failing to live up to their commitments to fight climate change, pointing Earth toward a future marked by more intense flooding, wildfires, drought, heat waves and species extinction, according to a report issued Wednesday by the United Nations. Just 26 of 193 countries that agreed last year to step up their climate actions have followed through with more ambitious plans. The world’s top two polluters, China and the United States, have taken some action but have not pledged more this year, and climate negotiations between the two have been frozen for months. Without drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, the report said, the planet is on track to warm by an average of 2.1 to 2.9 degrees Celsius, compared with preindustrial levels, by 2100. That’s far higher than the goal of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) set by the landmark Paris agreement in 2015, and it crosses the threshold beyond which scientists say the likelihood of catastrophic climate impacts significantly increases." https://www.nytimes.com/2022/10/26/climate/un-climate-pledges-warming.html?unlocked_article_code=-E5lRFmbLRC7cDn8j6VBurnp9XN_e8P9aO75PYPKeBl90tJ-B7O3eMRo88YKLZg3lYvvdx0xWJarxZKn_K7qL753iosHN7kmSCSvLDYe_FxTHQdhCDYtQlZndbKuuiiSnnVi_6obc2JfyJOREYRVOMz7oe_s_4yIjA45Ng_X0t9jlqrtlrmLw6lBjw26eGN8xoLxH4iIFbCFe-7_Al0lV-0dwQxjFYdf4aPyUOJZpxqHr_AGsZqPv4FlmaCfl1vjsOCfbT_Vm6M75InNpt_6_U38Fk64fd1GJ0Lzqa23Ivk0Mu6lcHCSC9-dpfQLDEBGALPZWKe0H5clFNsBGqRjL3BBHTs&smid=share-url

      We continue the fight. But the world needs to be serious. Are they not aware of the climate change effects; the droughts and floods

        This is worrying! If the most developed & powerful countries won't honor their pledges and take Action & accept prioritization of climate negotiations then don't expect any difference from other countries!! Let this coming #COP27 Be of actions No more speeches & promises!
