2:02 am
pointing out. this is the 1st international agreement to focus on reducing the use of coal power. the overall deal also calls on rich nations to increase their financial support to help poor countries adapt to climate impacts. our environment editor nick clark was at the summit in glasgow. objections. it is so decided the end of the road after 2 weeks and countless sleepless nights, please will again, jason's with dreaming intensity. mad you say to all our delegates. i apologize for the way this process has unfolded. ah, and i am deeply sorry. i also understand the deep disappointment but i think as you have noted, it's also vital that we protect this package. hold read, no planet
2:03 am
b. this was effectively an emergency meeting for all world to keep 1.5 alive. did it deliver what just been gabble? 3 is literally a betrayal of people. plaid is a little betrayal of the sciences. betrayal of the realities of the climate impacts are happening and devastating people's lives and lives. the only people celebrating this outcome of the hundreds of lobbyists from the oil and gas industry. those whose vested interest basically say, you know, we can't see any change, we can't move away from the fossil fuel addiction of our economy. the glasgow climate packed was nearly derailed at the last minute is india, south africa, and china demanded last minute amendments wanting the wording on coal to be changed to phase down. instead of phase out. this brought anger from small island states. this commitment on hall had been a bright spot in this package. it was one of the things we were hoping to carry out of here and back home with pride. and it hurts deeply to see that bright spot dim
2:04 am
and the pressure of 2 weeks of negotiations finally told on the court president, i looked sharma away from the nitty gritty of negotiations. a raft of big announcements were made, hoping to shake the outcome of cop 26 on forests more than 100 countries pledged to end and reverse deforestation by 2030 bank. rolling $19000000000.00 to do it. another 100 countries pledged to cut 30 percent of highly toxic methane emissions by 2030. it was declared. the end of coal is in sight as more than 40 countries committed to shift away from the fossil fuel. on finance, corporations controlling 40 percent of global assets. pledge to align themselves to the target, the 1.5 degrees celsius warming limit. and the rabbit out of the hat, u. s. and china surprising delegates with a declaration that val to boost cooperation between the world's biggest emitters.
2:05 am
but many say all that just means nothing and less nations act on their promises. as the usual suspects brought progress and the talks masons like saudi arabia, russia, and australia, the voice on the streets was loud and angry. ah . this is no longer climate conference. this is no global, nor the green was festival. ah, crazy fossil fuels and climate finance were both major stumbling blocks, the consensus in negotiations themselves and the bid to get countries to up their commitments every year as opposed to every 5 years. the next year in climate conference will be held in sharma, shake in egypt, in a year. in the meantime, will apply just beyond all the promises be kept. with countries return with greater ambition because one thing is certain time is running out. nicholas,
2:06 am
i'll da 0. glasgow by farmers is a senior fellow at the woodwork climate research center he's previously served as you, as deputy assistant secretary of state for the environment. he's joining us now from seneca rocks in west virginia. good abbey with us on al jazeera and we've heard a lot of disappointed voices there. but of course, those are some of those, at least at the conference, are trying to frame this as a success, which do you think it is how i like to say it's, it's both. it's both a disappointment, particularly because of the context we're in. you know, we world has been growing, it's carbon dioxide emissions for decades and it's methane emissions. so we're already have experience, significant warming. we're committed to significantly more warming no matter what happened in glasgow. now that's it. so everybody has a right to be very upset about the situation we're finding ourselves in. the other
2:07 am
key thing, which i think glass glasgow can help enormously, is the question of political well, this is a big problem. even the united states, which i know pretty well. you know, we can make any kind of commitment at an international meeting. then the big issue is implementation and delivering on that commitment. and that's true for every government in the world. it's a domestic implementation question or a goal or necessity that, that happen. and actually, i think that's where the future of coal is wrapped up in these nationally determined commitments. because if you, if the governments meet those commitments to call the future of coal is bleak. unless the carbon dioxide is captured at the point of combustion and buried a so called up clean coal or carbon sequestration. so, ah, on the positive side,
2:08 am
i think the issue of the methane agreements quite important and potentially very helpful. because cutting methane ah, it can reduce the concentrations, we can reduce the concentrations very fast because as a short life time, the farce agreement, very, that's a breakthrough, i would say. but again, it's implementation. what happens on the ground? he went to china statement, very helpful. better that it happened then. it didn't. the indian pledge that was, that was new. and a big deal for india. i think gonna finance. and then there's a whole thing that went into glasgow, which is all the commitments of all the institutions because of the glasgow, meaning that includes national governments, corporations, n g o's, ah, and so on. in other words, huge number of institutions in the world are made commitments that's necessary to
2:09 am
make progress. i remember when al jazeera was covering the, the climate change talks in paris. to me, the atmosphere of that seemed very different. there was a positivity that appeared to be going in to it. there was a positivity generally that seemed to carry through the talks and a positivity that seemed to result in practical terms. whether or not that's being carried forward. a is another argument, but was there a difference? do you think, between the attitude and the, the motivation if you like that we saw in paris compared to the motivation that we've been seeing in the run up to glasgow? well, there is a way to look at paris was a new ah, a brand new commitment by the world to try to limit emissions so that the global average temperature did not exceed 2 degrees and something well below it. like 1.5, that was new. that was a big commitment and the big pledge. ok, glasgow is kind of
2:10 am
a, a meeting in the midst of trying to achieve that pledge. it's more, there is a more the, the temperature goal thing can be judged or the national commitments can be judged against the temperature goal. so it's, it's kind of the ecstasy or the, the joy of paris is now in a more realistic frame here. and 1.5 is a very, very tough call. the odds of getting 1.5 are pretty slim. so people are going to be disappointed by that brave, brave, fair, more prominence. we appreciate you being on al jazeera and giving us the benefit of your expertise. thank you very much. indeed, sir. thanks for having me. take care sedans, health ministry, and says at least 5 people have been killed during mass rallies against military rule. security forces fired live runs at protest, isn't a capital, how to man the neighboring city of on demand. police also used to tear gas to
