This cutting from a newspaper in New Zealand back in 1912 says it all. Back then, with the industrial revolution in full swing, the world was emitting 7 bn tons of carbon dioxide per annum. This year that number is five times higher as we witness an alarming increase in extreme weather events, crop failures, the eradication of ocean species and a pandemic that had led to millions dying. The world's major power brokers from the most polluting countries meet in Glasgow for COP26 to agree a plan to drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions to a point of zero net emissions.
