Outrage + Optimism

Nov 3, 2021

The World Leaders Summit at COP26 has happened...So what happened, exactly?


This week, we cover it all in a laid-back-waiting-for-takeaway-to-arrive style conversation with our hosts.

We’ll cover updated pledges and commitments on:

  • An End to Deforestation by 2030
  • Methane reductions
  • India’s Net Zero 2070 target

We also get into inclusion and representation of the Global South, and how we went from 50% of global emissions covered by a Net Zero target at the beginning of this year, to yesterday it being 89%.

So sit back, relax, and dig in!
