The outcome of the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow (COP26) has been criticised by commentators as unambitious, with some like the delegates from Pacific island countries calling it a 'monumental failure'. Even the summit's host Boris Johnson admitted the deal was 'tinged with disappointment'. This is hardly surprising. Historically, most climate promises have fared badly.
