UK PM, Johnson “cautiously optimistic” on climate progress


United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has stated that there is “a long way to go” in combating climate change, but he is “cautiously optimistic.”

He said the doomsday clock “is still ticking” at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.

World leaders are leaving the summit, and each country’s negotiators are taking over to agree on climate pledges.

On Tuesday, more than 100 countries agreed to reduce methane emissions.

The global partnership between the United States and the European Union aims to reduce emissions by 30% compared to 2020 levels.
