In its effort to control unmanageable climate change, the 26th Conference of the Parties must help developing countries
BERKELEY, Calif., October 28, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) – World leaders gather in Glasgow from October 31 for the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26, to address the findings of the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on climate change (IPCC): human activities have unequivocally warmed and damaged the planet. Share International attributes 80 percent of warming to human actions, and says sharing resources to mitigate inevitable consequences is key to solving climate change.
As early as 2007, an article by a Master of Wisdom, recorded by the late British author Benjamin Creme and published in Share International magazine, gave this figure of 80% and declared that we have a crucial choice to make: reap the rewards of action. immediate, or face the destruction that would result from doing nothing, or too little.
The article stated that the World Teacher for this age, Maitreya, who is gradually emerging in public opinion, “will advocate a simpler form of life, more in accordance with the situation on the planet. When enough people are convinced that it is necessary, ”he predicted,“ there will be a growing movement to simplify across the planet ”. He further predicted that “when faced with the dilemma of necessary change, men will come to realize the inevitability of accepting the principle of sharing. Only sharing will make these changes practical and possible.
Although the effects of climate change are occurring faster than scientists expected, the IPCC report says there is still time to slow or even reverse some changes by reducing CO2 emissions to at least net zero. . But to achieve this globally, the richest countries must not only reduce their own emissions, but also share their resources and technology with less developed countries, to ensure that all can make the necessary rapid transition to sustainable energy sources.
Three of the four objectives of COP26 require potentially significant financial investments: radical reductions in emissions, strengthening adaptation to climate impacts and mobilization of finance. The fourth is that countries work together to implement these urgent but inevitable measures. The COP26 website, however, indicates that developed countries have not even kept their pledge of the 2009 Copenhagen Accord to mobilize by 2020 at least $ 100 billion in climate finance per year for developing countries. . Another obstacle noted by Jeffrey Sachs, president of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, is that poor countries have to borrow internationally at rates of 5 to 10 percent, and many have no access to markets. capital, while rich countries benefit from interest rates.
Clearly, politicians have yet to respond to the climate crisis at levels commensurate with the danger, but COP26 offers a crucial opportunity. To succeed in their stated goal of “uniting the world to tackle climate change”, COP26 participants will need to move beyond inequitable loan financing and accelerate the unconditional sharing of the financial and technological resources needed to bring all countries together. . This is in line with Maitreya’s rallying call to humanity: “Share and save the world”.
