Other news from the night:
At the conclusion of the Glasgow Climate Summit, Summit Chair, Alok Sharma, collapsed after a disappointing closing statement from the summit. Although 200 delegates agreed on measures to curb global warming, a last-minute discussion erupted, particularly with China and India.
The countries were dissatisfied with parts of the text, and wanted to amend the part on fossil fuel subsidies and stop the use of coal. In the text, the initial wording, “toward phasing out,” was changed at the last moment to “toward phasing out,” or “reduce” rather than “ultimately stop” the use of coal.
For other countries, especially from the European Union and small island states, this has been a major disappointment. However, all delegations eventually agreed to the closing statement.
