St Brides Partners Weekly Brief, Saturday 6th November 2021

Bonfire night last night, where we celebrate once a year the failed attempt of regicide by Guy Fawkes against King James I by making a giant bonfire and burning a strawman on it – ideally late at night.

Remembering the 5th of November and its historical significance always makes a great excuse to drink mulled wine, gaze up at fireworks or huddle around a flaming bonfire and CELEBRATE!

And we have a lot to celebrate given the impressive headway being made at COP26 despite the noted absences of Russia’s Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping. World leaders from over 100 different countries have promised to end deforestation by 2030; even Brazil was among the signatories, hopefully meaning the ‘lungs of the earth’ – responsible for 20% of oxygen in our planet’s atmosphere – will recover and continue to be a carbon sink.

A pledge to cut methane emissions by 30% by 2030 has also been signed by 105 countries. Whilst methane, in the short term, has 80 times the warming power of CO2, this pledge has been hailed as “game changing” by US President Biden and is considered one of the key changes that can be implemented in the near term to curtail climate change. However, it must be noted that several key global players omitted their signatures including, China, Russia, India, and Australia. Nevertheless, it is an important first step towards a greener – and cleaner – future.
