The UN Climate Summit (COP26) in Glasgow concluded on Saturday with the adoption of an agreement aimed at curbing dangerous temperatures on the planet.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said he believes the agreements reached are not enough.

“The outcome of COP26 is a compromise that reflects the level of interests, contradictions and political will (in dealing with the climate problem) in today’s world.” Wrote on the social networking site Twitter.

The Glasgow Climate Agreement “reaffirms” the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement: “Global warming will be below 2 C” and “Continue efforts to control global warming to 1.5 ° C”.
