The fight against climate change goes beyond reducing CO2 emissions

An insider talks about efforts to cut methane, one of the most prevalent greenhouse gases but which has had little attention

While global climate efforts have tended to focus on the fight against carbon dioxide, many other threats that attract less attention are just as dangerous to our planet.

Negotiations over these more granular issues take place away from the limelight. But the policies and agreements that emerge are some of the most vital steps in the fight against climate change.

Every week we’ll hear from negotiators from a developing country that is involved in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change negotiations and will be attending the Cop26 climate conference.

Have A Party, Don’t Have A Party: Ministers Aren’t Sure What To Say On Christmas Festivities
Government ministers have been sending out a rather inconsistent message about how the public should behave during the festive season in the last week.The discovery of the Omicron variant has seen Downing Street bring mandatory mask-wearing back.But should we limit our social interactions too? That remains far from clear.Here are all the recommendations put forward by ministers about Christmas this week.Cancel your Christmas partyScience minister George Freeman revealed that he had cancelled his work Christmas party and decided to hold it virtually instead when speaking to LBC on Thursday.Blaming the discovery of the Omicron variant for the change, he said: “We’ve decided this year that it is probably sensible to do it by Zoom and wait for the spring.”Don’t cancel your Christmas partyPrime minister Boris Johnson explicitly said the opposite of Freeman on Tuesday.When asked by reporters if Christmas celebrations should be called off, he said: “The answer is no. The guidance remains the same, and we’re trying to take a balanced and proportionate approach.”He even maintained that nativity plays should not be cancelled, adding: “We think that, overwhelmingly, the best thing for kids is to be at school.”No snogging allowed“I don’t think there should be much snogging under the mistletoe” at any Christmas parties according to work and pensions secretary Therese Coffey.However, she added that the government was working hard so that everyone could enjoy a “knees-up”.Speaking to ITV’s Robert Peston on Wednesday, she said: “I think we should all be trying to enjoy the Christmas ahead of us and that’s why we’re working so hard to get the deployment of as many vaccines as possible.”She later clarified on Twitter: “Don’t kiss with people you don’t know...”Watch the full interview folks ... Don't kiss with people you don't know..Government working exceptionally hard with NHS and the Jabs Army to get boosters in arms so we can all enjoy a proper Christmas knees up https://t.co/3jgYFNM070— Thérèse Coffey #PlanforJobs (@theresecoffey) December 1, 2021Get your lateral flow test beforePeople should test themselves for Covid by taking a lateral flow test before social interactions this Christmas, according to health secretary Sajid Javid.He said: “It’s not a formal recommendation, the guidance, but if I was going to a party with lots of people [I would get tested].“But I would have done that by the way even before we knew about this variant.”He later told BBC Radio 4′s Today programme: “Go to the party but just be cautious.”Don’t socialiseHead of the UK Health Security Agency Dr Jenny Harries urged people not to socialise “when we don’t particularly need to” on Tuesday.She also said working from home would be “a good thing to do” if case numbers continue to rise.Do socialiseNo.10 slapped down Dr Harries’ advice not to socialise where possible by claiming that was not the government’s official advice at the moment.Asked about her recommendation, the prime minister’s spokesman said: “No. Our advice to the public is as set out at the weekend.”They pointed out that beyond the mandatory face coverings in some settings, contacts of those who tested positive for Covid and new travel rules, the government has released no “further guidance to the public”.Wear a mask – but not all the timeNew rules surrounding mandatory mask-wearing came into place on Tuesday.People are now legally obliged to cover their faces in shops and on public transport, but not in other areas such as theatres, pubs and bars.Asked if this means you should wear a mask during a Christmas party, Javid told BBC Radio 4: “It depends if I am walking around or sitting down. It depends if I’m eating.“People just need to make a decision based on the guidance.” Self-isolate – but not for longThe government announced that double-vaccinated people arriving into the UK will now have to take a PCR test and their second day in the country. They will have to self-isolate until they receive a negative test result.Leaked documents from Sage scientists revealed that the government had been advised to ask travellers to take PCR tests on day five and eight after their arrival in the UK – meaning they would have to self-isolate for much longer.But Johnson has maintained that two-day isolations were “balanced and proportionate measures designed to protect the British people from the Omicron variant”.Related...Minister Reveals He's Cancelled Work Christmas Party Amid Omicron ConcernsShould You Be Making Back-Up Christmas Plans – And If So, How?Boris Johnson Does Not Deny 'Boozy Party' Held In Downing Street In Lockdown

In her tweet, she zeroed in on the character of President Eric Dunn, who Renzetti described as “a hulking moron whose breath smells of meat.”Clinton took the opportunity to not-so-subtly remind everyone – yet again – that her highly specific characterisation of President Dunn was merely fiction.Could have been based on anyone.... https://t.co/bxYrbg1m26— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) December 1, 2021We don’t know about you, but we certainly don’t view that as a burned hamburger. Sure, an excerpt from Clinton and Penny’s novel published by NPR does explicitly say that President Dunn’s breath “smelled of meat” – and if his actions as president caused a disaster “it will be dumped at your big gold door.” But that couldn’t possibly be former President Donald Trump.No way.Although, the man did famously love his Big Macs.And gold.
