For the first time ever at a UN Climate Conference, fossil fuels are being tackled head-on at Glasgow COP26. But Australia has plans to massively expand gas and coal projects. If Australia succeeds, the climate loses.

Join Polly Hemming and Mark Ogge from the Australia Institute’s Climate & Energy team for a deep dive on climate.
