In light of the ongoing UN Climate Change Conference 2021 (COP26), which is being held in Glasgow, Scotland between 31 October and 12 November of this year, where world leaders and climate change activists would gather to delve into one of the most dangerous threats to our future.

In 2021, people around the world are witnessing what could be the turning point to tackling climate change. Some experts are optimistic about the future; they hope that once countries get control of the Covid-19 pandemic, the economy will stabilize. With a stable economy, nations can make better financial decisions to control climate change.

A good number of positive deals were made during the COP26 regarding the reduction of emissions, green energy, and finance. For example, South Africa has signed a financing deal with some G7 countries to help end reliance on coal. Japan has announced an additional $10 billion in climate financing.

If world leaders are committed to making a change, and if people unite to fix our destructive habits, only then can we guarantee a better world for generations to come.
