PM says COP26 talks 'simply must succeed' as climate conference nears

  PM says COP26 talks 'simply must succeed' as climate conference nears Glasgow climate talks "simply must succeed", Boris Johnson has said, as he urged representatives to arrive at COP26 in November armed with the commitments needed to "take us to net zero sooner rather than later".Speaking ahead of the UN General Assembly in the US next week, and with only a few weeks to go until the major climate summit hosted by the UK, the prime minister called on world leaders to be ambitious in their promises to keep within reach the aim of limiting the warming of the planet to 1.5C.

Bolsonaro also turned down a personal offer from British PM Boris Johnson to receive a dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was more blunt, saying that Bolsonaro shouldn't have come to the UN without getting vaccinated first. During his talk, instead of focusing on the pandemic, Bolsonaro boasted about the economic revitalization of Brazil under his leadership.

Brazilian Health Minister Marcelo Quiroga, accompanying vaccine-skeptical President Jair Bolsonaro at the UN General Assembly in New York, has Covid-19. Quiroga was earlier filmed shaking hands with British PM Boris Johnson. Quiroga confirmed his illness on Twitter, assuring that the health ministry will still continue its battle against Covid-19 in Brazil , where the virus has already infected over 21 million people and killed over 591,000. The minister later told CNN Brazil that he was wearing his face-mask the entire time that he was at the UN headquarters to witness Bolsonaro ’s address.

The energy bills forced fertilizer plants to shut down, meaning the by-product carbon dioxide stopped being produced. It is a key chemical used throughout the fresh food industry to extend the shelf life of products from salads to meats and beyond.

The British government, seeking to avert meat and poultry shortages, has extended emergency state support and warned its food producers to prepare for a 400% rise in CO2 prices.

It was unclear this morning whether any deal was actually reached between Mr Johnson and Mr Bolsonaro for the supply of the food, or over what timeframe the UK risked shortages of it.

Ministers, including Mr Johnson, have repeatedly brushed aside suggestions there could be shortages of traditional Christmas fare such as roast turkey, though some suppliers have warned of them.
