How governments can close the "ambition gap” between their respective carbon emissions targets and a 1.5°C pathway could be a core focus both during and after next month's COP26, according to speakers at the Energy Intelligence Forum 2021. It’s “great to get that ambition on the table, great to get those targets on the table, but we need to implement with a scale and pace in the real world like we've never done before,” US Deputy Energy Secretary David Turk told the Forum. To that end, US Climate Envoy John Kerry has been traveling around the world to press other governments for more aggressive emissions targets.
