Oslo (Reuters) – US special envoy John Kerry told Reuters on Saturday that the world’s richest nations must implement their commitment to keep alive the goal of avoiding the ill effects of climate change.

UN General Assembly in Sharm el-Sheikh in November Kerry said progress was essential as Egypt prepared to hold the next round of climate talks on COP27.

For the summit to be successful, the world’s 20 richest nations, which represent 65% of world GDP, must be committed to controlling global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, as promised at the UN General Assembly in Glasgow last year. Said.

“This is very important,” Kerry said in an interview. “These 20 countries are responsible for 80% (greenhouse gas) emissions. If these countries move, we will solve the problem. ”

Some improvements are being made, but not enough, and changes need to happen quickly, he said.

Kerry said dealing with global crises such as the Kovit-19 epidemic and the war in Ukraine draws attention away from efforts to combat climate change.
