Press comment: ‘Frankfurter Rundschau’ on the results of the climate conference

FRANKFURT (dpa-AFX) – “Frankfurter Rundschau” on the results of the climate conference:

“Glasgow has confirmed what has been emerging for years. The structure of the UN climate process alone cannot solve the most pressing human problem. It only provides the framework within which states can at best be motivated to become more ambitious. There will only be real progress when pioneering alliances are formed that other countries pull along. There were important initiatives here at the summit. Above all, the surprising announcement by China and the USA that they want to lead the way in reducing greenhouse gas emissions despite other differences. The two are number one and two for global emissions. Cooperation between industrialized and emerging countries will also be very important, in which the rich countries are heavily co-financing the energy transition in the global south, as agreed with South Africa and India. Other agreements such as methane reduction and the end of burners or at the end of the financing of fossil energy projects can give an additional boost. “/ be / DP / he
