Report: India Is The Only G20 Country To Meet Their “Historic” Paris Climate Agreement Commitments

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

One thing to remember: for all the talk about how super awesome the Paris climate agreement was, virtually none of the the nations who signed it are keeping their commitments. For those who made commitments. And many of the commitments weren’t considered strong enough to comply with Paris. Heck, even France is not in compliance. Climate cultists can Blame Trump and the “lack of U.S. leadership”, but, did nations really need the U.S. to practice what they preach? If China Joe does rejoin the agreement, will the nations suddenly keep their commitments? Don’t count on it

India only country among G20 nations to meet climate change mitigation commitments

India is the only country among G-20 nations that is on track to meet its climate change mitigation commitments of 2 degrees Celcius under the 2015 Paris Agreement, said a report released by a coalition of 14 global thinktanks including TERI.

The development was flagged by Climate Transparency which examined the efforts of countries to combat climate change among the G20 nations.

According to the Climate Transparency report (CT) 2020 released on Wednesday, India’s actions on climate targets set under 2015 Paris Agreement makes it compatible to achieve curbs on global warming by 2 degrees Celsius.

The climate action tracker has put China in the ‘highly sufficient category’ despite its promise to become carbon neutral by 2060, according to a report in Times of India.

The CT report said that India has promised to reduce its emissions by 33-35 per cent and take action on energy, waste, transport and other sectors.

However, the report further said that India is not on the track to achieve the Paris climate agreement’s long-term goal of 1.5 Celcius target.

“India is the only country which is on track consistent to move the world to a 2-degree Celsius warming figure, though not a 1.5-degree warming future,” the Times of India report quoted TERI Director General Ajay Mathur as saying.

Huh. How about that? Of course, India’s pledges are actually pretty weak. And to say China is in the “highly sufficient category” is a joke. Talk is cheap, and that is what both nations are mostly doing, talk, especially China. Regardless, that only one nation is considered on track for 2C shows the folly of the Paris Climate Agreement. If you pledge to reduce your fossil fuels usage in half and call that historic, but you only reduce it by 10%, is that still historic?
