COP27 climate summit to test resolve of world battling war, inflation

  • Many of the biggest players distracted by crises
  • Global greenhouse gas emissions still rising
  • Floods, droughts, heatwaves taking toll around world
  • ‘Not on track on anything’ says Egypt’s negotiator

An international climate summit starting next week in Egypt will test the resolve of nations to combat global warming, even as many of the biggest players are distracted by urgent crises ranging from war in Europe to rampant consumer inflation.

More than 30,000 delegates, including representatives from some 200 countries, will gather Nov. 6-18 in the seaside resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh to hash out details around how to slow climate change and help those already feeling its impacts.

But with nations dealing with the fallout of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, along with soaring food and fuel prices and stuttering economic growth, questions loom over whether they will act quickly and ambitiously enough to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
