A new deal to tackle climate change has been struck at the COP26 Summit in Glasgow after its extra time plenary concluded on Saturday. Notably, India had made a successful intervention at the climate change conference that led to the revision of a clause that asked to "phase out" fossil fuels. The term was later changed to "phase down." Coal-reliant nations lobbed last-minute objections.
