COP26

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been promoting “can do capitalism” when Australia needs policies that treat all equally, argues Stuart Rees.

A public forum on the failure of the COP26 climate summit with John Molyneux and Sarah Hathway.

COP26 made it pretty clear that Australia is ruled by, and on behalf of, sociopaths who are confident they will get a place on the escape space shuttle out of here when things turn to shit, argues Sam Wainwright.

The climate science says we are running out of time to avoid climate catastrophe but, as Friends of the Earth says, this COP26 did not deliver what was needed.

COP26 identified the worst polluter culprits, ranking Australia worst in the world for climate policy. Gideon Polya looks at why.

Greta Thunberg told the massive Fridays for Future rally in Glasgow that the COP26 climate summit was a “failure” because global leaders were refusing to commit to real action. Alex Bainbridge argues the bright spot is the leadership coming from the streets.

Political leaders continue to ignore the consequences of their inaction, but history will judge them poorly and we will not accept it, argues Greta Thunberg.

There was a dangerous underestimation of the scale of the climate crisis we face at COP26, argues David Spratt. Targets for 2025 and 2030 need to be the focus.

As Scott Morrison wipes the egg from his face following his dismal performance at COP26, Sue Bull argues that climate campaigners have to step up their campaign to force a just transition.

 

First Nations and Pacific islander voices were front and centre in the Sydney COP26 climate action march, reports Peter Boyle.

COP26 global day of action

Australia-wide rallies were organised to coincide with the COP26 global day of action demanding climate justice. Alex Bainbridge reports.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison made Australia even more of a climate pariah at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, argues Sarah Hathway.

Activists highlighted Warren Entsch's climate hypocrisy, reports Kerry Smith.

The focus on "net zero" and “fossil fuels versus renewables” does not do justice to the critical need for just solutions for the Global South and Indigenous peoples, writes Ruchira Talukdar.

Climate expert, Australian National University emeritus professor and Climate Council member Will Steffen speaks to Green Left about climate science and politics in the lead up to the COP26 United Nations climate summit in Glasgow.

Pip Hinman argues that Scott Morrison's much-belated conversion to net zero emissions by 2050 is nothing to celebrate.
