Are the promises of COP26 real solutions, or just a speechwriter’s dream come true?


High fives and socially distanced sound clips dominate the media opportunity for politicians that is COP26. This does not mean that this is all a waste of time, far from it. But people know how to pose around the event with a pinch of salt.

It’s a political speechwriter‘s dream. “We are digging our own graves,” the UN said. Another catchy phrase referred to our “moment of truth”. It’s “either up to us to stop it or it will stop us,” said another. Queen Elizabeth urged everyone to “act now for our children”, while Boris Johnson described it as “one minute before midnight on the doomsday clock”.
