As we near the final month of 2021, the world continues to experience a multitude of events that are shaping the global landscape. From environmental disasters to political tensions, this month has been marked by a host of issues that have captured global attention. Climate change continues to be a pressing issue, with the world grappling with the consequences of global warming. In November, the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) held in Glasgow brought together world leaders to discuss and address the issue.
Despite the conference’s successes in securing commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the outcome was seen as insufficient by environmentalists who criticized the lack of decisive action taken by countries, especially wealthy nations. The Afghanistan situation has also continued to be at the center of international Canadian News Today. In the wake of the withdrawal of US troops earlier in the year, the country has witnessed a resurgence of the Taliban, who overran Kabul and took control of the country.
