22 mins | Nov 19, 2021

Today's episode from 19th November 2021. On today's show, we are looking back at the agreements, disagreements and pledges from COP26. From UN climate negotiators specifically calling on the drawing down of fossil fuels for the first time ever, to India and China's last-minute mind change about coal. Find out what the Glasgow Climate Pact includes and what it means for all of our futures. COP26 was the biggest climate conference in history, and nearly 200 countries signed up to the Glasgow Climate Pact. But this agreement is only a tiny step towards solving a gargantuan problem, according to Umair Irfan for Vox. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
