Countries reach climate deal at COP26, compromise on coal

CBC News in Canada shows that really almost 200 nations attending the UN Climate Change conference in Glasgow accepted a contentious climate compromise aimed at keeping alive a key target to limit global warming, but it contained a last-minute change that some high officials called a watering down of crucial language about coal.

COP26 is the interesting conference. "I wish we had managed to preserve original language on coal," says UK COP26 President Sharma.

"Nevertheless, we do have language on coal, on phase down, and I don't think anyone at the start of this process would have necessarily expected that that would have been retained."
