The annual United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, is the 26th iteration of the UN annual convening on climate change and how countries can better mitigate the escalating crisis. This year’s conference takes place in Glasgow, Scotland, and focuses on how countries have performed on their 2015 Paris Climate Agreement goals. Did they meet or exceed those goals? Or are they falling short? Many countries had pledged to keep their countries to the net-zero carbon emissions goal. COP 26 should help the world understand who met their obligations and who didn’t and what are the incentives and punishments for those actions.
