Cop26: what are the chances of keeping the 1.5C target alive? | News

Boris Johnson started the Cop26 local weather summit in Glasgow by telling fellow world leaders the world was at “one minute to midnight” on the Doomsday Clock and should act now to avert a local weather catastrophe.

The Guardian’s international setting editor, Jonathan Watts, has been in Glasgow all week to comply with the occasions as they unfolded. He tells Nosheen Iqbal there have been vital bulletins on deforestation, methane discount and local weather finance, however the last week of the convention will need to have extra commitments on decreasing international emissions if the target of limiting international heating to 1.5C is to be stored alive.

Out on the streets of Glasgow, Libby Brooks tells Nosheen that activists are making ready for large protests tomorrow in the metropolis and round the world. In the meantime with chaotic scenes and large queues snaking spherical the convention centre, delegates have complained about the organisation of the occasion.
