President Cyril Ramaphosa has given a strong message to the global climate change summit COP26, saying there is no longer any doubt that climate change presents an urgent threat to humanity.

He reiterated the often-stated point that bold action must start with accelerated decarbonisation of energy systems.

Ramaphosa has emphasised this transition should however happen in a fair and just way.

Meanwhile, the Southern African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute and Earthlife Africa say the South African government is paying lip service at COP26.

Government continues to promote nuclear energy even though at COP26 they are taking a stance for renewable energy.

The Institute’s Francesca de Gasparis, says confusion reigns over the government’s plans for the extension of the lifespan of Koeberg.
