COP26 approves agreement for the reduction of fossil fuels on the planet

 

"After a marathon of negotiations, the COP26 (United Nations Climate Conference) approved this Saturday (13), in Glasgow, Scotland, an agreement on the planet's climate that includes, for the first time in history, a reference to fossil fuels and their role in the climate crisis.
 
The final text explicitly points to coal, which is the single largest contributor to climate change. In all the previous 25 COPs, never had an agreement mentioned coal, oil or gas, or even fossil fuels in general, as drivers - much less the main cause - of the climate crisis."
