COP26 is now in full swing and honestly I think its going to be a summit of more empty promises. We cannot simply engineer ourselves out of our situation without fundamental behavioural change. Embracing a reduced carbon footprint is worthless when for every one who does, there is another doing the exact opposite.
Government policies and promises are worthless without an tacit acknowledgement that our lifestyles are just not viable. How much that dial needs to be turned, how much discomfort needs to be spread, is for those governments to collectively decide and agree and then implement. They won’t though. 5 years from now when things are even worse, we will still be discussing the way forward decades into the future.
25,000 delegates descending upon Glasgow to discuss climate change. What the hell are we doing?
