    Part of President Biden’s huge team arrived at 글래스고 Airport todayonly to be welcomed by brutally wet weather which has seen two road bridges ‘washed awayby torrential rain.

    A C17 military jet kicked up clouds of vapour as it touched down on the runway before disgorging the president’s Marine One helicopter and scores of security personnel, who were thankfully treated to a break in the downpours.

    A third jet with ‘United States of Americaon its fuselage was seen landing at the airport before taking off again, alongside planes from other nations including France.

    The main aim of the summit is to persuade countries to agree to take action to restrict global warming to nothing more than 1.5 degrees.

    보리스 존슨 – who is hosting the eventpreviously hailed COP26 as a major moment, saying in September that ‘this is the most important period I think now in the history of the planetbecause COP simply must succeed’.

    The UK has set out a plan to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and is urging other countries to follow suit.

    하나, expectations appear to have now been dampened, with the Prime Minister saying earlier this week that it will be ‘touch and goon whether progress will be made.

    Environment Secretary George Eustice told Sky News that it is always difficult to agree big changes at large-scale events attended by many nations.

    그는 말했다: ‘These events, because they are big, multi-lateral events with many countries, it is often difficult to get progress.

    ‘We have been working incredibly hard though on our agenda which is getting more countries to commit to net zero by the middle of the century, getting commitments on decarbonising transport, particularly electrification of cars.

    ‘And in my case working quite hard on a package around forests, mobilising finance and getting agreement on reducing and halting the net loss of forests around the world.

    ‘So I am optimistic about these agendas. But always, 명백하게, when we are in the final days in the build up to it you do get nervous about whether you will get things over the line, certain agreements over the line.

    ‘There is more to be done at the actual summit itself. I am optimistic but it is, as the Prime Minister said, touch and go.

    Mr Johnson said on Monday that he was ‘worriedthe COP26 summit could end in failure.

    The Prime Minister said a deal between world leaders on reducing harmful emissions ‘can be donebut it is going to be ‘very, very tough’.

    It comes after it was revealed that China, the world’s biggest polluter, would not be attending.

    The PM spoke to the Chinese President on the phone on Friday morning after Beijing confirmed he will not be attending the COP26 summit in person but will address his fellow world leaders via video link.

    China has dashed hopes of significant progress being made at the summit in Glasgow after it recommitted to its old climate goals and failed to set out any additional ones.

    China is the biggest emitter of CO2 in the world and its formal submission ahead of COP26 restated its goal of achieving ‘carbon neutrality’ 으로 2060 despite other nations urging Beijing to go further.

    A Downing Street summary of the phone call with President Xi said Mr Johnson had ‘acknowledgedChina’s plans to tackle climate change.

    A Number 10 spokesman added: ‘He emphasised the importance of all countries stepping up their ambition on climate change at COP26 and taking concrete action to cut emissions and expedite the transition to renewable energy, including phasing out coal.
