October 1, 2021

TRT World Now – IGSD President Durwood Zaelke answers the question “how much further do governments have to go in Glasgow compared to what they signed up in the Paris agreement?”

“Greta is absolutely right, blah blah blah for 2050. That is way too far away.

We have to show that we can cut emissions right now, deeply, through 2030. That is the only way we are going to be able to stay in the marathon through 2050…

And the first thing we have to do is to cut methane emissions”
