After meeting in Cornwall, the leaders of G7 group have promised to put strict measures against climate change, especially on coal-fired power stations .
Unless they use technology to acquire carbon emissions, the world leaders will try to stay away from coal plants.
This all comes after a warning from Sir David Attenborough in which he stated that humans could be ”on the verge of destabilising the entire planet.” According to him, leaders of G7 group have dealt with some of the most significant decisions in history.
The White House announced the coal statement, and it also mentioned how this marks the first time that the leaders of G7 group were committed to keep the global temperature increase to 1.5C.
Coal is the dirtiest fuel, and by not using it, this would be a huge step by the environmentalists, however, they also want the rich countries to send promises in order to help poor nations who are dealing with climate change.
The G7 group is expected to end the funding of upcoming coal generation, and as a result, they will also offer £2 billion to stop fuel usage.
World leaders of the G7 – UK, US, Japan, Canada, Germany, Italy and France are estimated to include plans that help with the decreasing of emissions from transport, farming, cement and steel.
Further, their commitment includes securing 30% of marine areas and international land by 2030. Additionally, they’re estimated to get their emissions in half by 2030, but the UK has already done this commitment.
The G7 group was able to see a video message by Sir David Attenborough, during which he stated that: ”The natural world today is greatly diminished… Our climate is warming fast. That is beyond doubt. Our societies and nations are unequal and that is sadly plain to see.
“But the question science forces us to address specifically in 2021 is whether as a result of these intertwined facts we are on the verge of destabilising the entire planet.”
