World Leaders Meet for COP26
The 26th annual climate change conference, or ‘COP26’ took place in Glasgow recently, and saw over 100 world leaders meet to address the climate crisis and ultimately reach an agreement on how best to tackle climate change.
An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, was amongst those in attendance, and says of Ireland’s environmental responsibilities that “farming will have to change, energy will have to change and transport will have to change”.
The Challenges Faced
Climate change has become increasingly prevalent in the last 26 years, since the COP talks officially began, as the effects of climate change are rapidly making themselves known as observed in the slew of natural disasters such as tsunamis, earthquakes, forest fires, and rising global temperatures that have struck the planet of late.
Experts confirm that there is a direct link between these disasters and global carbon emissions, which makes it an imperative to act fast to work together to achieve the targets set.
