Description: Special guests Rupert Read and Nick Breeze discuss COP26 with our regarlar panelists Dr. Peter Carter, Paul Beckwith and Regina Valdez.

Comprehensive Recap of COP26 – to ascertain if COP has been a success as the world has hoped for, or just another incidence of Blah, blah, blah.

Dr Peter Carter: The first draft of the concluding document has been released. Is this the best we are going to achieve at COP26? It acknowledged the emissions have to be reduced rapidly. Emissions will have to be reduced 50% from 2020 figures. There is nothing in the document for GHG to decline.
The best thing that came out of COP is the International association of Youth that got together and sent a a formal petition to the UN Secretary General Antionio Guterres that the UN General Assembly must make ak Climate Emergency Declaration. COP 27 will be in Egypt in 2022. Nothing can happen until then.
