It would be a tragedy if the COP26 summit were to end in fudge or failure

No green fudge

The numbers of people taking measures to reduce their carbon footprint, increase recycling and reduce waste has increased dramatically in the last two years.

White Van Men up and down the country are getting behind the wheels of electric vehicles and even cutting down on their bacon sandwiches.

And a significant majority appear to back Boris Johnson over his plans to transform the environment.

Government cannot — and should not — do it alone.

The will for change behind both is growing by the day and providing a unique opportunity.

Now it is up to leaders to join together on Sunday at COP 26 to seize this moment.

It would be a tragedy if the summit were to end in fudge or failure.

THE Sun has been demanding more cash to plug the shocking gap in funding for services for disabled children as part of our Give It Back campaign.

Rishi Sunak has now listened to desperate families and will pledge £2.6billion to free up 30,000 more places at specialist schools.

But it’s a wonderful start.
