Why environmental pledges don't go far enough

They’ve declared a climate emergency, promised to be net zero by 2050 and pledged money for climate aid. But the UK government could do better. Here’s why.

    El problema es que van a seguir mandando las manufacturas de productos que mas contaminan a países de tercer mundo, con gobiernos corruptos donde se olvidan de todo tipo de normas.

    Corrupted continue to lie about it. Brainwashing the people. If they were worried about they would plant trees. What humans have done or will do doesn't matter. The world will destroy itself.

    China and India are becoming conscious that they need to plant more trees to contribute to the Lost of greenery that can help in reversing the global warming. Yet USA can only give suggestions but not doing enough although they are supposed to lead in their researches!! Something need to be done on their part instead of announcing and do so little to inspire other nations. In fact Asian countries such as China and India are taking actions better than words!!

    Nothing good about the climate crisis the scientist continue to prove its real and it's happening It's time to do your bit and stop denying At least think of the younger generation. Also 2050 is out of date it's 2030 now....

    "The US is the biggest culprit" and yet it led the world by reducing its emissions more than any other country. The scientific evidence is that spending all this money may reduce global warming by 0.5 C at the cost of many of the poor being unable to afford to heat there homes in winter, and the third world gets its economic growth stifled which was bringing more poor out of poverty each year. Crisis? Do some independent research on some neutral sites instead of listening to those who are already all in on the question.
