COP26: success or failure?

Simon Clark -Nov 21, 2021

Can the climate crisis be solved with existing power structures or not? Were the pledges at COP26 enough to avoid disaster?

Not the COP26 video you probably expected me to make! I wanted to provide some meta context to the various hot takes that I’ve read on the Glasgow conference, and question why some people view it as progress and others don’t. Ultimately I think it comes down to this: how do we talk about progress in the climate crisis? Where should we stand on the scale of optimism and pessimism?
