Let’s start things on the other side of the globe today. In Glasgow, an agreement has been reached for countries to set stronger emission reduction targets by 2030 to ensure global warming is limited to 1.5 degrees. But India’s last-minute effort saw the watering down of a language calling for an end to the use of coal, with the agreement instead requiring it to be a “phase”.[d] At home, questions remain as to whether the recent “non-zero” modeling published by the government will have to be revised – or whether it will stick to “can do capitalism”?
