Rules for thee but not for me

COP27 is the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC and took place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from 7-18 November 2022.

COP27 was originally expected to take place from 8-20 November 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, COP26 was rescheduled from November 2020 to November 2021. As a result, COP27 was delayed by one year.[1]

UK cop out

On Friday afternoon 28 October 2022, The Guardian reported:

King Charles will not attend the COP27 summit, Downing Street has said, as it is not the “right occasion” for him to do so. The former Prime Minister Liz Truss had asked the king not to attend the summit, and her successor, Rishi Sunak, has left it in place, No 10 confirmed.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak had already decided not to attend COP27.[2]

Remote control

The Telegraph reported that King Charles will find a way to support COP27 'from afar' after the Government ruled out his attending in person.[3]

Screeching U-turn

On 2 November 2022, Number 10 announced:

The Prime Minister has reversed an earlier decision not to go to the COP27 climate summit in Egypt.

No 10 had said Rishi Sunak was too busy preparing for the 17 November budget to attend the event which opens on Sunday.

But this had been widely criticised by climate campaigners, opposition parties and climate adviser Alok Sharma.

Mr Sunak said there was "no long-term prosperity without action on climate change" or energy security without investment in renewables:

"That's why I will attend COP27 next week - to deliver on Glasgow's legacy of building a secure, clean and sustainable future," he told MPs during Prime Minister's Questions.

On Tuesday, former prime minister Boris Johnson said he would attend COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh.[4]

1.5ºC target on ‘life support’

At the closing plenary session of COP27 Alok Sharma, the outgoing COP26 president, said:

“Many of us came here to safeguard the outcomes that we secured in Glasgow, and to go further still.

“In our attempts to do that, we have had a series of very challenging conversations over the past few days.

“Indeed those of us who came to Egypt to keep 1.5ºC alive, and to respect what every single one of us agreed to in Glasgow, have had to fight relentlessly to hold the line.

“We have had to battle to build on one of the key achievements of Glasgow. We joined with many Parties to propose a number of measures that would have contributed to this.

  • "Emissions peaking before 2025, as the science tells us is necessary. Not in this text.
  • “Clear follow-through on the phase down of coal. Not in this text.
  • "A clear commitment to phase out all fossil fuels. Not in this text.
  • “And the energy text, weakened, in the final minutes.

“Friends, I said in Glasgow that the pulse of 1.5ºC was weak.

“Unfortunately, it remains on life support.

“And all of us need to look ourselves in the mirror, and consider if we have fully risen to that challenge over the past two weeks.”[5]
