At COP27, there is a deal
Two weeks of climate talks concluded in Egypt yesterday. Nearly 200 countries’ diplomats agreed to create a fund to help vulnerable countries and poor countries deal with climate catastrophes. Over the next year, a committee consisting of representatives from 24 countries will be working out the details of the fund.
The This agreement follows over three decades of demands from developing countries for rich, industrialized countries to compensate for the damage caused by rising temperatures. The The U.S. and other rich countries have long opposed the idea out of fear of unlimited liability in future. But the new agreement does not prohibit them.
The new climate agreement addresses the effects of global warming but does not address the causes of the crisis. Experts agree that countries need to reduce their emissions more quickly if they want to maintain a relatively safe level of warming.
