In the last decades there have been minor shifts in the outcomes of major climate summits with certain world leaders refusing to significantly compromise.
The recently held COP26 summit, touted as “our last best hope”, saw a deal being struck where countries pledged to “phase down” rather than “phase out” coal.
The deal also promises more money for developing countries – to help them adapt to climate impacts. But the pledges don’t go far enough to limit a temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
