Protests in Glasgow ahead of COP26

Activists amidst art installation of flames & smoke

GLASGOW, UK: Climate activists symbolically set George Square on fire with an art installation of faux flames and smoke ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), in Glasgow, Scotland.

They demanded the actions of world leaders ahead of COP26. Activist leader of Glasgow Actions, Andrew Nazdin, said :

“From wildfires in the U.S. to flooding across the world, we are in a full-blown climate crisis. World leaders know this. They have seen what’s happening. Now is the time for them to come together here in Glasgow and hammer out a deal to avert the worst of the climate catastrophe”.

A U.N. backed report said 10 of the world’s great forests, including Yosemite National Park, are emitting more carbon dioxide than they absorb.
