World Leaders Vow to End Deforestation & Cut Methane Emissions at COP26
On Tuesday, over 120 world leaders signed a declaration agreeing to protect earth's forests by ending deforestation over the next decade as well as to cut methane emissions and help South Africa eliminate its use of coal.
The United Nations summit, known as COP26, focuses on actions countries can take to protect against catastrophic global warming.
The two-day summit included many speakers who warned of the current and future dangers of climate change.
U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres noted that many countries have made promises in the past and said, "Signing the declaration is the easy part. It is essential that it is implemented now for people and planet."
