A The British Presidency of the Conference called on world leaders to call for “Oceans Action Day” to take action to protect the oceans, which would allow carbon neutralization and global warming above 1.5 degrees Celsius.
“The oceans play a unique role in regulating our climate. There is no path to carbon neutrality – or any of our shared global goals – that would not involve conserving and restoring nature, including the oceans, on an unprecedented scale.” Secretary of State for International Environment Zach Goldsmith.
Six million pounds (seven million euros) of British funding goes to the World Bank problem fund and one million pounds (1.2 million euros) to the Global Coral Fund, which this year has already donated five million pounds.
Portuguese Maritime Minister Ricardo Cera-o Santos went to the conference in Glasgow this day to attend, where he delivered the same message.

More than 120 political leaders and thousands of experts, activists and public decision-makers gathered at the 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland until November 12 to promote countries’ contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
COP26 takes place six years after the Paris Agreement, set with the goal of controlling the planet’s global average temperature rise of 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial values.
Despite the assurances, the UN estimates that the concentration of greenhouse gases will reach record levels in 2020, even in the wake of the recession caused by the Govt-19 epidemic, and that temperatures will eventually be at current emission rates. 2.7 C of the century.
