COP26 climate summit: Nearly 90 countries join pact to slash methane emissions

The US wants to slow climate change by plugging leaks in oil and gas wells, and maybe reducing the consumption of meat. Washington’s plan involves a global strategy to reduce methane emissions. Methane is one of the main causes of climate change — it is almost 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide. US President Joe Biden is set to formally launch a global effort to slash emissions of the greenhouse gas by 30% from 2020 levels by the end of the decade. Nearly 90 countries have joined the effort spearheaded by the US and EU.

Today, the protocol is under fire yet again. In an overture to the UK, the EU suggested cuts to the number of checks on the border to ease the path of goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

But the UK says it no longer wants the European Court of Justice to be the final arbiter of disputes over trade rules, saying an independent body should be set up.

Coronavirus infection numbers are falling in Indonesia, but the figures do not tell the whole story. Experts said it is because fewer tests are being conducted. President Joko Widodo has ordered labs to slash prices of PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests to get the testing rate back up. The test now costs as little as $34, nearly half compared to previously. Indonesia’s health ministry has said the cost of a PCR test in the country is now among the lowest in Southeast Asia.
