Day 1 of COP26 and we have heard some impressive opening statements. And though words are important, we – all of us watching now, as well as future generations – will judge our leaders by their actions, not by their words.
Bolovian President Lui Arce said that developed nations are “just biding their time without facing any sense of responsibility toward humanity or towards Mother Earth.”
“Their credibility is at peril,” he said. “The developed countries are coming up with speeches that portray them as champions to combat climate change and to address emissions by 2050, but this is far from being the truth.” So we wait, wish them well and will hold them to account.
Meanwhile, in hope rather more than expectation, here is some environmentally themed music from the excellent Outrage and Optimism podcasts. Enjoy!
