Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Climate protesters let off smoke flares at Glasgow demonstration ahead of Cop26” – below is their description.

The UN’s Emissions Gap report says promises made by countries across the world will fail to keep the global temperature under 1.5°C (2.7°F) this century, a target set as part of the 2015 Paris Agreement to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. It pours yet more cold water on Boris Johnson’s big COP26 moment, as he gets ready to welcome world leaders to Scotland for climate talks. The Prime Minister wants countries to commit to slashing carbon emissions but both Russian leader Vladimir Putin and China’s President Xi Jinping have already said they are not intending to travel to the event. This has heightened fears that the summit will fail to make significant progress in the fight against climate change.
