What Happened on Friday at COP26: Negotiations Stretch Into the Night

New York Times

Anxious energy filled the halls of the exhibition center in Glasgow on Friday, where diplomats from nearly 200 countries blew past a deadline for striking a global climate accord, with talks set to continue through the night.  

…Mohamed Adow, an activist with Power Shift Africa, who has attended several such summits, rued that the food offerings had not sweetened the diplomacy this year.

“A hungry man is an angry man,” he said.

Inside the plenary hall, Mohamed Adow of Power Shift Africa, an environmental group, said: “The time for words without action has come and gone. We no longer have the luxury of time to sit back and allow governments and private interests to destroy our future.”
