G7 and Climate
The Group of 7 powerful industrialised nations meeting in Cornwall, UK, on 11-13 June, vowed to cut their greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and to protect 30% of global land and marine areas for nature by that date.
They failed to set a firm date to end the burning of coal, but did agree to halt international funding for coal projects lacking CCS (carbon capture and store) technology. They agreed to stop funding new coal generation in developing countries.
Rich nations had previously (in 2009) pledged to provide $100bn a year to developing nations for climate assistance but delivery has fallen short of the goal.

Save the Last Six!
In 2011 Germany had 17 nuclear reactors, supplying 1/4 of the country’s electricity. Today, 6 remain, all scheduled to be shut down by the end of 2022. (By contrast, coal-fired plants will operate until 2038).
Climate activists say that the nuclear plants provide safe, dependable electricity and save 70 million tons of CO2 a year. They plan regular demonstrations in front of the remaining plants, hoping to persuade policy makers to keep them running.
