British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce Friday a new target that he says would reduce the U.K.’s greenhouse gas emissions “faster than any major economy.”
…The U.K.’s move was praised by Mohamed Adow, director of Power Shift Africa, a climate and energy think tank based in Nairobi, Kenya.
“This is the kind of leadership we want to see from the hosts of the crucial U.N. summit next year, and it will put pressure on other countries to follow suit,” he said.
“This welcome move by the U.K. ahead of the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement must now trigger a race to the top for a safer and cleaner world,” Adow added.
