CNET's European Correspondent Katie Collins joins to share key take-aways and insights from the recent United Nations climate summit, aka "COP26," held in Glasgow, Scotland. The event, a gathering of world leaders and dignitaries, activists and corporate leaders, yielded a number of surprises, as the world works to adapt to a climate-changing world. What role did the U.S. play at the conference? Were the voices of the younger (mostly female) activists offered a platform? What was Amazon's Jeff Bezos doing there? How will oil and gas companies adapt to climate change? Katie breaks it all down. More about Katie: She is CNET's London-based news reporter. She is passionate about innovation, great design, privacy issues and tech for good. Katie nerds out over maps and planes, both of which she uses to navigate her way around the world on epic adventures. In a previous life, she wrote for Reuters, Wired and Ars Technica.

Climate catastrophe threatens our planet with devastating consequences. It is in that knowledge that delegates from 197 countries came to Glasgow for the UN's Climate Conference, COP26. Has their agreement left the world on a safer path, or is it an opportunity missed? From coal emissions to deforestation, money for developing economies and clean cars, the BBC's Science Editor David Shukman chairs a debate which covers the big issues with questions coming from all over the world. The panel includes Zainab Waheed, 16-year-old climate activist and Pakistan's delegate to Youth4Climate; Philip Dunne MP, chair of the UK Parliament's Environmental Audit Committee; Senator Loren Legarda, deputy speaker of the Philippines House of Representatives; and Dr Tara Shine, climate adviser and director of Change By Degrees.

Van Badham and Ben Davison dive into the Liberal lies, cover ups and side hustles that have come to typify the Morrison government. With Morrison himself called a liar, not just by President Macron but also, by Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull the credibility of Morrison's leadership is being called into question.  If other leaders can't trust Morrison what does that mean for our national security?  If we can't trust him here at home what does that mean for our economy, jobs, health and education systems? Dom Perrottet is holding a review of grant decisions following Glady's ICAC hearing testimony.  In a piece of pure political theatre the man who was treasurer and a member of the expenditure committee is pretending to not have been in government when his government was "throwing" money to win seats.   Did you know that Liberal Senator Hollie Hughes is also a consultant?  It has been revealed that the Senator for NSW has a side hustle as a consultant for a bio-fuels company that she has pay into a trust where she is the only shareholder and only beneficiary.  She's taken something meant to make our democracy stronger and perverted it to add to her $249,000 salary.  No wonder the Morrison government won't regulate the gig economy! The Cop26 Climate Conference has started in Glasgow and Morrison has wasted no time in rejecting the Global Methane Pledge and giving pride of place to massive gas exporter Santos.  In a move described as "a joke" by Malcolm Turnbull Santos' "Blue Hydrogen" process, where you burn and "carbon capture" gas to make renewable hydrogen instead of using solar, wind or hydro to make renewable hydrogen, has been promoted by the Australian stall and Morrison minister Angus Taylor.  On the plus side we have signed up to end deforestation and will participate in the protection of large parts of the worlds rainforests. The heart-warming news that every Australian awoke to this morning was the rescue of four year old Cleo Smith.  WA Police found the little girl alone in a locked house, her first words to them were "My name is Cleo".  The impact of the rescue, coming 18 days after her disappearance, is serving as a beacon of hope for many people after a trying period for the nation. Plus news on pay rises for hairstylists and a pay dispute at Country Road with gender equity undertones.

At the conference, President Biden apologized for the U.S. pulling out of the Paris Climate Accords during the Trump administration. A new court filing shows the breadth of documents former President Trump is attempting to keep from the January 6th House committee. New details in the lawsuit filed by Trump reveals he is seeking executive privilege to not release hundreds of pages of handwritten notes, draft documents, and daily logs his top advisers kept related to the capitol riot.  The Biden White House said it would not be in the best interest of the US to keep the documents secret and thus would not keep them private.    To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

COP 26 is the most important international climate conference since the Paris Agreement of 2015.   On the line with me to offer a preview of what to expect from this major UN climate meeting is Pete Odgen, Vice President for Energy, Climate, and the Environment at the United Nations Foundation. He is a veteran of many previous COPs and in our conversation he discusses the key issues up for negotiation in Glasgow and the broader geopolitics of climate change diplomacy. This includes a deep dive into how both China and the United States are approaching COP26 and thorny questions around climate finance.

Sweden aims to be a climate role model - but is it on track to meet its own climate targets? We hear the Minister for Environment Per Bolund, who is proud of Sweden's climate work, and the deputy director of the Stockholm Environment Institute Åsa Persson, who talks about some of the challenges ahead. Meanwhile Karin Lexén, general secretary of the Society for Nature Conservation, and Isadora Wronski, programme director of Greenpeace Sweden, both urge Sweden to do more.

Later this month we'll see the kickoff of COP26, the 26th meeting of the UN's main climate change arm. Not only is this the first of these annual meetings to take place during the Biden administration, but it's also one in which the nations of the world are expected to lay out exactly how committed they are to achieving the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement. On this week's episode of our environmental podcast, Parts Per Billion, we hear from Bloomberg News' Jess Shankleman, who'll be attending the conference in Glasgow, Scotland. She'll go over the stakes for this year's conference, who's expected to be attending, and whether this UN process is moving too slowly to have a meaningful effect on climate change.
