Major deals struck — including on coal — at the UN climate conference have been met with mixed reactions. But can they lay the groundwork for a comprehensive strategy to meet climate targets?
…Mohamed Adow, head of the Nairobi-based climate think tank Power Shift Africa, spoke of “two realities” at the climate conference.
“One is the world of press statements from the British government,” he said.
These statements suggest that “all is well and we have all but defeated the climate crisis.'” But there is another world “outside that PR bubble,” Adow adds. He describes this as “the climate in cold hard facts.”
