UK's Johnson praises COP26 achievements

In a pre-recorded speech released by 10 Downing street, Johnson has said: 'the great news is together the world has made some important breakthroughs. We've kept alive the hope of restricting the growth in temperatures to 1.5 degrees, and we've made huge progress on coal, cars, cash, and trees. For the first time ever, we've got over 190 countries all agreeing to sound the death-knell for coal power."

Defining CP26 as the 'the moment humanity finally got real about climate change' Johnson has acknowledged that the Glasgow summit has not found a solution to climate change but yet provided a viable roadmap to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.

U.N. climate talks in Scotland ended with a global agreement aimed at keeping alive hopes of capping global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius, and so maintain a realistic shot at saving the world from catastrophic climate change.

The two-week conference in Glasgow, which extended into an extra day of tortuous negotiations, was the 26th of its kind but the first to call for a reduction in fossil fuels, which not only power much of the world's economy but are also the main cause of manmade global warming.
