Observer View in the UK Net Zero Plan | Observer Editor

TLast week’s East Africa Climate Change Panel report on global warming was inconsistent and inconsistent. The authors make it clear that the world cannot seek comfort in the expectation that it will continue to burn unlimited gas, coal, and oil without causing harm. Floods, droughts, rising sea levels, glaciers, coral reefs, heat waves, and forest fires will only intensify unless we change our course, the authors of the report emphasize.

The message is clear. Although the burden on the UK is particularly heavy, human fossil fuel dependence must be briefly broken and each addiction must play a role in stopping that addiction quickly. To begin with, we are burning fossil fuels, mainly coal, for a longer period of time than any other nation. After all, the Industrial Revolution was born in Britain. Therefore, we have a special responsibility to be among the nations that are struggling to cope with the negative effects that greenhouse gases are already having on our world.

In addition, Britain is set to chair the Cop 26 United Nations Climate Conference in Glasgow in November. This is the last chance to agree on effective, global warming measures of 1.5C above pre-industry standards and therefore avoid the dire consequences of our impending crisis. Therefore, in order for this summit to be successful, the UK will be under tremendous pressure and will need to provide clear evidence that it has the evidence to achieve that goal.

To do this, it needs to make it clear that Britain plans to set up its own home on a program that will show that it can control its carbon emissions quickly and efficiently. The host of the summit is based on it, and many countries are coming to Glasgow to seek inspiration and credibility from the UK to achieve its goal of not putting more carbon into the atmosphere than Britain will soon remove. Net zero emissions.

Unfortunately, there are few indications that such a master plan is readily available. Boris Johnson may have recently turned green due to the fact that he has often ridiculed the science of climate change. However, the administration remains guilty of supporting irreconcilable measures in the near future. This list of inconsistencies includes the government’s recent cancellation of the Green Housing Assistance Program. Reduce fuel shortages while helping small electric car owners, allow billions of dollars in new road plans; Delays in heating gas heaters in homes, and the expansion of airports. Instead of helping to reduce them, all carbon dioxide emissions can lead to an increase.

Certainly, Cop26 delegates from developing countries see little inspiration in such a collection. For good measure, the recent sharp decline in our foreign aid has severely damaged Britain’s international reputation. Despite some encouraging steps, our hopes for a global impact on Cop26 now seem bleak, with Johnson saying he is ready to encourage homeowners to buy low-carbon alternatives to gas heaters. However, the claim that Britain is moving toward a more consistent climate policy is unconvincing. It is estimated that we need to invest about 1% of our gross domestic product to build infrastructure that achieves net zero emissions. We are currently doing that small fraction. Britain has a lot to do before the Copa 26, but there is still a chance to take a serious step. It is too late for emergency weather in our climate events.
