US climate envoy John Kerry says the war in Ukraine has not wrecked the Glasgow Climate Pact agreed last year.

Russia's invasion has "presented a challenge" in the battle against global warming but could be overcome, he said.

Large reductions in carbon emissions are required if temperature rises are to be kept below 1.5C.

In a BBC interview, Mr Kerry said some countries needed to "raise ambitions" if the most dangerous effects of climate change were to be prevented.

According to a UN report, the world is on track to warm by 3.2C this century if countries only follow through on commitments made before the Glasgow summit.

This would lead to "unprecedented heatwaves, terrifying storms, and widespread water shortages".

To avoid that fate, the world must keep the rise in temperatures at or under 1.5C this century, researchers have said, and reach peak CO2 emissions by 2025.

Speaking to BBC Scotland's No Hot Air podcast, Mr Kerry said the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow was "enormously successful in raising ambition".

He said if all the commitments made by nations at the summit were fulfilled, Earth "would be at 1.8 degrees of warming by 2050", but there has "not been enough movement to implement those promises".

"The bottom line is we're in trouble right now unless we can turn things around faster over the next eight years," he said.

"We have to still fight for the 1.5, as hard as it may be. But I remain an optimist, because I think that if we do what we've promised to do, we can have a 45% global cut globally between now and 2030."

COP26 President Alok Sharma said in January that the agreements reached at the Glasgow climate meeting had been a "fragile win" for the world but progress made during the summit was at risk of "withering on the vine".
