Greta Thunberg on COP26: “This is not a climate summit”

The world climate conference has been sharply criticized from many quarters. Greta Thunberg does not hold back either. The 18-year-old environmental activist wrote on Twitter: “This is no longer a climate conference. This is a festival of green dyeing by the rich countries. ”She accuses the assembly of not paying enough attention to the voices from the global south.

The COP26 should go until November 12th. Until then, 200 countries are trying to find solutions to limit global warming to a tolerable level of a maximum of 1.5. In addition to the 1.5 degree limit, other topics such as the coal phase-out and the global methane agreement will be discussed at the UN climate conference *.
