Protesters at Site of COP26 Climate Summit Demand Real Action to Limit Warming to 1.5°C

HeadlineOct 29, 2021

In Scotland, protesters gathered Thursday near the site of next week’s COP26 summit, demanding countries take real action to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Dylan Hamilton: “We have to try and remind world leaders what’s happening with the crisis. The world is literally on fire, and it’s only going to get worse.”

Andrew Nazdin: “From wildfires in the U.S. to flooding across the world, we are in a full-blown climate crisis. World leaders know this. They’ve 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.”
