The COP27 starts in Egypt on November 6. Another get-together of world leaders to discuss the need to stop talking and start acting. Our cartoonists have been following previous COPs with some interest, so we're sharing some of these cartoons, going back to 2015.
This first cartoon by Italian cartoonist Enrico Bertuccioli does a good job conveying the general message throughout all the cartoons that deal with the various climate summits. Although there is a lot of talk about the need to take immediate action, it seems like the participants are operating on a different sort of clock...
