イタリア: 多くのG20諸国は、より緊急の気候目標を望んでいます
An Italian government minister says many of the climate and energy ministers at a Group of 20 meeting hosted by Italy have agreed to work toward even more ambitious emission-reduction goals than those established in the 2015 Paris accords

Many of the climate and energy ministers at a Group of 20 meeting hosted by イタリア agreed Friday to work toward even more ambitious goals for fighting climate change than those established in the 2015 パリ accords, an Italian official said.

Italy’s minister of ecological transition, Roberto Cingolani, also said during a news conference that concern over last week’s devastating flooding in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands was palpable during the two days of negotiations in Naples Germany and the 欧州連合 are G-20 members.

“All began by offering condolences” to the representatives of the affected countries, Cingolani said. Such natural disasters are “changing consciences,” even on a political level, 彼は言った.

Climate scientists say the link between extreme weather and global warming is unmistakable, making it clear that urgent action is needed. The G-20 nations collectively account for some 80% of the world’s gross domestic product and some 60% of the planet’s population.

At the Naples talks, アメリカ合衆国, the European Union, Japan and Canada made clear they “firmly intend to go faster than the Paris agreement by the (end of) the decade, and below 1.5 度,” Cingolani said.

World leaders agreed six years ago in Paris to work to keep global temperatures from increasing more than 2 摂氏 (3.6 華氏度), and ideally no more than 1.5 degrees C (2.7 F) by the end of the century. Scientists say both goals will be missed by a wide margin unless drastic steps are taken to reduce emissions.

“That half degree could make an enormous difference in terms of glacial melting” and other phenomena linked to climate change, Cingolani said.

とにかく, Cingolani said, all G-20 members agreed to at least meet the Paris goals. ”There is no country which puts the Paris accords in doubt," 彼は言った.

我ら. President Joe Biden’s climate envoy, ジョン・ケリー, participated in the Naples talks. Earlier in the week, Kerry called on China to join the United States in urgently cutting greenhouse gases.

The majority of the countries at the conference also backed a goal of moving faster to reduce the use of coal, the Italian minister said, without naming all of the nations.

But during the talks, 中国, as well as Russia and India, were “more prudent” in embracing more ambitious goals, Cingolani said.

“For those countries, it means putting into question an economic model,” 彼は言った.

Exactly what commitment nations, including those which heavily pollute, are willing to make toward fighting climate change will be also on display at U.N. climate conference taking place in Scotland in November.

The national leaders of the G-20 countries will have the opportunity to thrash out the sticking points that emerged in Naples when they meet in ローマ at the end of October.
