The G20 agrees on an upper limit of 1.5 degrees for global warming

According to diplomatic sources, the G20 have agreed on the maximum limit of 1.5 degrees for global warming, Europa Press said on Sunday.

This agreement marks a victory over the failed negotiations in July during the meeting of G20 energy and environment ministers in the face of opposition from China and India.

The consensus comes a few hours before the start of the COP26 climate summit, which will take place in Glasgow this Monday.
