CAA Weekly News Update -27th October

Hello Colleagues & Friends,

With COP26 less than a week away, our Climate Corner has taken control of today’s post!

You can follow this extremely important world event live, from 31st October to 12th November, on the COP26 YouTube Channel and read more on their website. You may find What Is COP26? And Other Questions About the Big U.N. Climate Summit, from the New York Times, a useful reference, and Document leak reveals nations lobbying to change key climate report from the BBC will give you something to think about.

The Global Monitoring Laboratory, which follows greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, will surely open your eyes.
