The eve of COP26

An increase in global temperatures will see habitats in most parts of the world burn, as has already started, even in places where people imagine that humans can control nature.
In our part of the world it's more likely that habitats will flood, so we met on a bridge over one of Oxford's rivers, not far from its confluence with the other.
Our marking of the start of the meeting where world leaders have a responsibility to make life-saving decisions was, ironically, mostly illuminated (and hidden from my camera) by machines powered by fossil fuels. We stopped them for two minutes' silence - with the agreement of the police acting in defence of our right to protest.
Later, as we moved in small caferful groups onto a roundabout to display banners there, I watched one car driver nudge a protester backwards. She just kept her balance.
