By: Andreea Dibo, Health & Environment, The Pawprint

The opening at the UN climate change meeting in Egypt warned that the earth is “sending a crisis signal.”

At the COP27 meeting, which is taking place in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, more than 120 international leaders are expected to attend. During this event, heads of state and government will make five-minute speeches detailing their objectives for the conference. On Monday and Tuesday, world leaders will address the summit; after they go, conference participants will begin negotiations.

Two weeks of international talks on climate action have begun.

Egyptian Foreign Minister and COP27 president Sameh Shoukry encouraged decision-makers not to let the food and energy crises brought on by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine stand in the way of addressing climate change.
