G20 countries agree to 1.5 degree goal - VG

G20 countries agree to 1.5 degree goal – VG

G20 leaders gathered for a traditional “family photo” at the La Nuvola Convention Center in Rome on Saturday.

GLASGOW/OSLO (VG) The G20 countries have agreed to pursue the goal of the Paris Agreement, and try to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.


This is what the sources say to Agence France-Presse.

The sources should be close to the negotiations at the summit. They claim that G-20 leaders endorse a statement that goes far beyond the Paris Agreement in 2015, which concluded that global warming should remain below 2 degrees, and ideally closer to 1.5 degrees.

There was a lot of pressure on G20 countries to come up with a common climate policy during the summit in Rome, which will be followed by the UN Climate Summit COP26 in Glasgow. The 20 major industrialized nations collectively account for 80% of the world’s climate emissions.

Experts believe that in order to reach the 1.5-degree target, one would have to roughly halve global emissions by 2030, and then make the world completely carbon-neutral by 2050.

Climate and Environment Minister Espin Barth Eide (Labour) told VG he was very happy that the G20 countries had now reached an agreement in Rome.

He has a 1.5-degree target as one of three key points he hopes to emerge from the Glasgow climate summit in the coming weeks.

– This is very well done by those who were there. This enhances the possibility of a joint decision from Glasgow. Eddy says it can also help create movement in other areas.

The other two points of importance to the climate minister ahead of the climate summit are the escalation of climate finance – as well as the establishment of common standards for quota systems.

We must become more realistic, and we must avoid pitfalls and cheating when we exchange classes.

He asserts that the world has many different quota systems:

– What is important is that we must offer common standards. It would have been better if other quota systems in the world were more similar to European standards. The quota should represent actual emissions, he tells VG.

France and Britain agreed to resolve the fishing dispute

During the G20 summit, France and the United Kingdom also agreed on “practical and practical measures” to defuse the dispute between the two countries over fishing rights.

This was stated by the office of French President Emmanuel Macron.

The report states that Macron and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke together during the G20 summit. There, they should have agreed on immediate mitigation measures, and on coming up with more concrete measures as soon as possible.

The two countries differed for months over the fishing rights of their boats in each other’s waters in the English Channel. The issue was very prominent in the negotiations on the divorce agreement between the UK and the EU after Brexit.

The French reacted strongly to the British refusal to grant the French fishermen the licenses they requested in line with the Brexit agreement.

In recent weeks, the conflict has escalated sharply, and France has threatened to deny British fishermen access to French ports, tighten customs controls, and limit energy supplies to the Channel Islands.
