Ahead of the United Nations' COP26 climate summit next month, high-profile figures are heard expressing their thoughts on the current state of the world and US Climate Envoy John Kerry has said that it's the "last best hope for the world to get its act together."

But what is a COP? For almost three decades, an annual 'Conference of the Parties' brings almost every country in the world together where world leaders and high-profile individuals can discuss a global response to the climate emergency.

Except for 2020, the COP went ahead without fail and since its beginning, climate change has gone from being a fringe issue to a global priority and the conference aims to “avoid dangerous climate change”, as well as to find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions globally - fairly and sustainably.

However, despite the fact that each country on Earth is treaty-bound to do so, some believe efforts pursued in various parts of the world are inadequate or simply unacceptable. Queen Elizabeth II also expressed discontent in relation to the annual summit, saying how she was irritated by those who "talk" but "don't do" and that she still did not know who was going to attend the event.

The talks will have their focus on holding the Earth's temperature rise to 1.5C, and scientists have predicted it would require global carbon emissions to fall by at least 45% from 2010 levels by the end of this decade. Aside from a brief period of lower emissions due to Covid-19 lockdowns, emissions continue to rise and thwart long-term objectives.

Have you followed any news regarding the United Nations' COP26 to be hosted shortly?

Do you agree that such talks have been encompassing too much "talk" and a lack of actual action?

Are you hopeful that the world can change the trajectory of climate change?

Yes we can. We need a strong will to do so. I have tried to drive less, fly much, much less, try not to use AC as much, try to use much less gas, eat less beef or pork, try to use less electricity or water, try to recycle much more, and tried to lower my carbon footprint as much as possible. I have to start somewhere even if it is just a little at a time.

NWO OWG globalist ploy to control not just the USA but the free world while they bank TRILLIONS OF $$$$$ by pandering and selling their non recyclable wind turbines and non workable solar energy. There are wind turbine bone yards littering the mid west and parts of the western states as those turbine blade cannot be recycled. Forget solar as only possibly work when the sun actually shines. And then no enough lithium for those batteries and it takes natural gas to operate those electric car charging stations.......... Do your homework as this ia a giant FAIL.

I have to start somewhere even if it is just a little at a time. When I see what drought is doing to countries, the tornados, hurricanes, flooding, fires, etc. The destruction is awful & costly. It makes me want to do more. We can do this people, even if it is a little at a time before it is too late. LET's GO!!!

I am hopeful that the talks can help to reduce, reverse, or eliminate climate change. We do need more action and less talk, but must convince the naysayers that climate change is real before we can bring about change.

All bad news. Things have gotten way out of hand. I'm always hopeful that we can clean up our world but also doubtful. Praying
