COP and the University of Edinburgh
As the world turns towards COP28 in the United Arab Emirates we reflect on our extraordinary work addressing the challenges of the global climate crisis.
Six years ago, Professors Gabi Hegerl and Simon Tett’s work to prove human-caused greenhouse gasses are warming our planet underpinned the 2015 Paris Agreement. Today they argue we still aren’t doing enough to adapt to climate change.
Leaders need to do more to signal that the only future is a green one. Otherwise the financial sector will have an excuse to continue to bet on fossil fuels.
To find real progress at the summit look past world leaders shaking hands to what is happening beyond the negotiating rooms.
