“We cannot afford to repeat the usual rhetoric and look for scapegoats or wait for others to act first.”

The list of lucky elects finally published on Tuesday night includes some notable absentees, notably the United States, while President Joe Biden will remain in New York, and China, whose president did not travel to the Annual General Meeting. Or the United Kingdom, which is preparing to return to its goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, its Prime Minister Rishi Sunak suggested on Tuesday.
