Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “COP26: Thousands Protest Government Inaction in Climate Change” – below is their description.
Thousands of demonstrators are set to march in Glasgow, Scotland, over the next few days, as the COP26 climate summit wraps up its first week. They’re protesting government inaction, lack of access to conference events and what activist Greta Thunberg has described as “greenwashing.”
There’s been some progress so far — including deals on phasing out methane, coal and fossil fuel funding — but they’re not backed by some of the world’s largest polluters, and a closer look reveals some important exceptions and loopholes. Much work also remains on establishing international carbon markets.
The talks, set to run through Nov. 12, are expected to become more intense next week — and get deeper into the nitty gritty. It’s already looking thorny, but summit President Alok Sharma has a new goal: break a COP tradition and finish on time next Friday.
