On the last day of the G20 summit, held in Rome on Sunday, the discussions on tackling climate change took place. The leaders of the member countries put forth their views.
Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden expressed disappointment that Russia and China “did not appear committed to tackling climate change” at the G20 summit. Speaking to reporters in Rome, he said, “People have a reason to be disappointed because all the member states have shown activeness in it, but Russia, China have been silent on the subject, which Biden said has passed several resolutions.” America is concerned about it.”
In this conference, the leaders of the G-20 group agreed to limit global warming to 1.5 °C. The leaders of the member countries also discussed some concrete actions in this meeting. However, the meeting, did not specify a date till 2050 to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.
Russia, China’s stand on climate change is not satisfactory
Scientists say that curbing these considerable carbon emissions is critical to preventing catastrophic climate change. “We believe that the impacts of climate change at 1.5 °C are much less than those at 2 °C. Keeping 1.5°C within reach will require meaningful and effective action and commitment by all countries. After this, President Biden said that there was no commitment from Russia and China regarding this, which is a matter of concern.
