Climate Change - Voices from Nepal


1 November - The news on the Flemish radio:

'' Today climate negotiations begin at COP 26, the 26th International Climate Conference. It is often called the Summit of the Truth. In 2015, world leaders in Paris agreed to keep global warming below 2 and preferably below 1.5 degrees, but exactly how we would do that has never been determined. Over the past 6 years, the amount of CO2 we send into the atmosphere has only increased, so now all countries will be asked what strict and concrete measures we are going to take to limit warming as much as possible and also how the rich countries will financially support the poorer countries that are already suffering much more from climate change. Global warming and change are accelerating. In some places it means extreme heat and forest fires, with us it was intense rainfall.''
