Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Nicola Sturgeon says Cop26 will ‘inevitably’ pose Covid-19 transmission risk” – below is their description.

The Queen (left, last week) will not attend the Cop26 climate change reception in Glasgow on Monday after spending a night in hospital for tests last week, Buckingham Palace has announced. The 95-year-old sovereign was due to travel to Scotland for the high-profile engagement at the Scottish Event Campus (bottom right) to greet world leaders from 120 countries including US President Joe Biden. Aides had hoped that the head of state would be well enough to lead the Royal Family at the summit, either in person or via videolink. And earlier today (centre and top right) she returned to work at Windsor Castle, where she is resting on doctors’ orders, for the first time since last week. However, a Palace spokesman said the Queen has ‘regretfully decided that she will no longer travel to Glasgow to attend the evening reception’. The Queen faced preliminary tests in hospital on October 20 during her first overnight stay at the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in London in eight years, after she dramatically cancelled a two-day trip to Northern Ireland. Her Majesty, who will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee next year, has had a busy schedule since returning from Balmoral. Including her return from the royal estate in Aberdeenshire, where she spent the summer, she has travelled nearly 1,000 miles this month.

Climate Change is the name commonly given to the notion that the Earth is undergoing a changing climate as a result of human activity, including notable leaders, scientists and naturalists including Sir David Attenborough.

Climate change includes both the global warming driven by human emissions of greenhouse gases, and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
