Will world take action after a week of major climate disasters?

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Will world take action after a week of major climate disasters?” – below is their description.

Today, there was yet another warning on climate change: the International Energy Agency predicting global emissions of greenhouse gases will reach an all-time high in 2023 – as governments all over the world fail to ‘build back better’ as they recover from the pandemic.

There are, of course, constant reminders of the real impact of the Emergency on Planet Earth.

We have correspondents across the globe in climate crisis hotspots – from a proposed oil field off the coast of Shetland, to monsoon rains in India, wildfires in the United States, and the devastating floods in Germany.
