The G7 meeting of Boris Johnson received sharp criticism. That’s because – despite the British Prime Minister’s lofty promises ahead of the meeting – no blunt promises were made on climate measures.
The coal to be phased out still needs to be phased out. But it is unclear how and when it will turn out. Further criticism has come from the fact that EU countries have not succeeded in imposing their policies on dirty industries that move their operations abroad to avoid stricter regulations – the EU alone should have gone ahead with sanctions on these industries.
It didn’t get any better from measures like Boris Johnson choosing to fly a private jet to Cornwall from London – a 35-minute flight. Or Johnson’s choice to allow Red Arrows – the RAF’s aerobatics – to appear before the other leaders at the G7 summit.
