According to new records, greenhouse gas concentrations are increasing so much that they hit record highs last year, despite the fact that lockdown scattered all over the world. Bad news, but that could help the meeting called COP26 where the leaders of the world will meet to decide once again how to move.
This meeting will be held in Gaslow and will last 13 days, from October 31st to November 12th.

One of the problems is perhaps an excessive, albeit with hindsight almost justified, in the past decades on the subject that has led many not to believe in disastrous scenarios.
