Über 100 Länder versprechen Methan Ausstoß zu kürzen
November 2, 2021 - Über 100 Länder sind dem Global Methan Pledge – ein US und EU-geführtes Versprechen das potente Treibhausgas Methan in der nächsten Dekade um mindestens 30 Prozent zu verringern, beigetreten.
The pledge, launched at the COP26 summit in Glasgow on Tuesday after being announced in September, now covers countries representing nearly half of global methane emissions and 70 percent of global GDP, U.S. President Joe Biden said.
Among the new signatories was Brazil – one of the world’s five biggest emitters of methane.
China, Russia and India, also top-five methane emitters, have not signed on to the pledge. Those countries were all included on a list identified as targets to join the pledge, first reported by Reuters.
