Cancer Prevention: A Potential Vaccine

The COP26 conference held in Katowice, Poland has been a historic event. More than 40 countries have pledged to stop using coal as an energy source by 2030 or sooner. This is the first time that so many nations have come together to support one another’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gases and other pollutants that are harming the planet.

A twenty-year goal was set at the Paris climate talks in 2015, but there still aren’t enough agreements amongst countries to bring about this change. The most recent agreement is scored by some as a significant step forward. However, slowing down carbon emissions by switching to renewable energy will not be an easy or cheap task for many of the countries involved. A Clean Air Action Plan is being developed to help countries transition off of coal and other high emission fuels.

COP26 was called the most critical conference since Paris for many reasons. First, it brought together nations from all around the world who are committed to working together towards this goal. Also, the United States came into the talks as a party to the Paris Agreement. Many countries had not been sure if they would be able to rely on American support going forward. However, all of this work does not mean that the battle is over yet. There are still other issues that must be addressed. For example, Russia and Saudi Arabia used their power to block rules that would have required countries to report their emissions transparently so that everyone would know how much progress had been made. They also blocked measures to slow the destruction of the world’s forests.

COP26 has begun an era in which many nations are coming together with a common goal of protecting our environment, but it is still unclear what the long-term outcome of this conference will be.

Countries will be expected to come back to COP27 in 2020 and show progress. This conference must set the stage for all nations to commit to cleaner energy sources before it is too late for our planet.
