The world leaders are long gone from the COP 26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland but Boris Johnson is heading back in today.
As the host of the conference, the U.K. Prime Minister is arriving back into Glasgow to keep pushing the negotiators from more than 200 countries to find a way to turn promises into action and help nations reach their emissions targets.
Greenpeace says the draft document is not a plan that will solve the climate emergency.
Promises made so far include ending supports for coal projects and ending reforestation.
Previous promises at conferences have gone unfulfilled and environmental advocates say even if current promises are achieved, countries will still come up short on their goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
The COP 26 convention ends Friday, November 12.
