I'm loving these daily recaps, Param-- thanks so much for them!


What do you think is going to be the resounding lasting message from COP26 when we look back on it months, even years from now? Will it stand out as the landmark it needs to be, or will it end up grouped in with all the other conferences taking place without concrete progress coming from them?

Hi Matt - thanks. In terms of what COP26 can actually accomplish is going to come out in the next few days - would it lead to some definite commitments or Greta's words "blah, blah, blah". The "non-paper" they published over the weekend was a disappointment:

It is a bullet list, and omits the words "energy", "renewable", "fossil" or "fuels". There is obviously an outrage over that, and hopefully the UK Presidency, which has a significant leeway in the draft of this and final documents will heed that.
