Show real leadership at COP26
Scotland has a unique opportunity next year to show true cimate leadership in the year that we host COP26 in our country. The countries of the global south especially are depending on us to face up to our responsibilities as one of those industrialised countries who have contributed most to the climate crisis. We must also stand up to the fossil fuel lobby that has always sought to limit climate policies. These companies should have no place in the COP climate negotiations due to their own vested interests in making sure that these policies are weakened.
Why the contribution is important
COP26 is a key year in relation to the Paris Climate Agreement. We must guard against this agreement from being greenwashed and abused by big polluting companies.Instead we should give more space to listening to the voices of indigenous communities from the global south from whom we can also learn a great deal.
