Young climate activists start own climate talks after Cop26 delay

The Guardian (UK)

Mock Cop26 set up in frustration at lack of progress due to coronavirus crisis

Young climate activists have begun a parallel process to the UN climate crisis talks, in frustration at the lack of progress they perceive in world governments’ efforts to address the emergency.

…Mohamed Adow, director of PowerShift Africa, a developing country thinktank, added: “The UK has made some positive noises as COP president but it’s clear that Number 10 really needs to start making it a political priority. We need to see some real leadership from Boris Johnson. If he wants the ‘Global Britain’ brand to mean anything more than just a PR stunt, he needs to step up and lead from the front on climate.”

"It is vital that Kenya and other African nations stand alongside the coalition of countries which are pushing for stronger regulations to prevent shipping’s dirty secret from destroying our climate and our coastlines any further" @mohadow @PowerShftAfrica http://news.trust.org/item/20201022152259-d4nus/

Africa’s first electric bus plant is being built in Uganda, with the hope it will both spur industrialization while reducing pollution from old vehicles.

The shipping industry is one of the dirtiest in the world.

It emits a billion tons of C02 every year.

If it was a country it would be the 5th biggest polluter in the world.

It's time @IMOHQ cleaned up their act.
