Cop26 Glasgow news – live: Obama says ‘not enough progress’ towards 1.5C as talks enter crunch second week
The Independent says As the Cop26 summit in Glasgow enters its second week, the issue of “loss and damage” is taking centre stage at the meetings today – as world leaders seek a consensus on how to fund climate adaptation in the poorest and most imperilled nations.
Former US president Barack Obama warned delegates on Monday that while the pledges made so far represent “real progress” if they are followed through, “not enough” has been done to avert warming of more than 1.5C. He called for “ongoing activism” and “citizen pressure” on governments and the private sector to ensure they honour their commitments.
