COP25: UN climate conference to tackle global challenges

Paris climate deal will be a key issue as some 25,000 delegates convene for the annual UN conference in Madrid. Aljazeera, by 12 Dec 19,   Madrid, Spain – As alarm bells ring ever louder worldwide over climate change, some 25,000 delegates will meet for the next two weeks in Spain for COP25, the annual United Nations international conference on a global challenge that shows little signs of being resolved.

Last Monday, a World Meteorological Organization report indicated that greenhouse gas concentrations rose again in 2018, with carbon dioxide levels hitting 407.8 parts per million, a new record in human history.

COP25 begins on Monday in a trade fair park in the Spanish capital, Madrid, days after the European Union collectively declared a “climate emergency”, echoing a joint, equally grim crisis warning issued in early November by more than 11,000 scientists from 150 countries.

“The confirmation that we’ve exceeded the records for CO2 levels in the atmosphere indicates that the measures governments are currently taking are not sufficient,” Alberto Mataran Ruiz, who specialises in environmental science at the Spain’s University of Granada, told Al Jazeera.

“One key question is probably changing those measures. There’s another big issue with the United States, which is pulling out of the 2015 Paris climate change agreement altogether… [It] is a big problem as the US is one of the most important producers of CO2.”…….. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/12/cop25-climate-conference-tackle-global-challenges-191201120548039.html
