Predicting the future is normally impossible. But with COP26 around the corner, it’s become a prerequisite for entering the global debate on climate action. 

Over the next two weeks, diplomats, business leaders, activists, scientists, journalists and the public will attend the most important climate conference in history, with the common goal of choosing a better future for our planet. 

Breaths are held in anticipation of the conference setting the pace for a decade that has been labelled as make or break for humanity. 

Here are the most important stories, analysis and commentary from the week leading up to COP26.
