Global Letter

Dear Colleague,

COP26 in November faces an impossibly wide spread of national interests to corral into a unified global  programme. It  has  been  set  up  for  failure  by  the  clash  between  ambition  and  reality  on climate change – with three elements in particular undermining the whole carbon-zero target.

Yours sincerely,
