COP26: New climate deal agreed upon in Glasgow:

By: Ryan Oswald, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint

The Glasgow Climate Pact is the first deal ever to directly plan to reduce coal, the planet’s worst fossil fuel for greenhouse gas.

The plan encourages an urgent cut of emissions, and promises more money to developing countries. 

However, the agreement focuses on “phasing down” the use of coal instead of “phasing out”, which ignited some negative feelings and disappointment.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says that he hopes the world will start to see this as the beginning of the end of climate change. 

“There is still a huge amount more to do in the coming years. But today’s agreement is a big step forward and, critically, we have the first ever international agreement to phase down coal and a roadmap to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees,”.
