I think I'm gonna call it: the big shift in framing after COP26 is going to be into "the race to..." carbon neutral, or net zero, or whatever. Space Race nationalist propaganda that'll have us jovially competing with Western nations and viciously threatened by others.
The framing will move from existential threat to the norm of progress into the future, and this'll limit the advantage radicals have in leveraging climate change.
With statists re-focused on doing better than others, not doing well enough to survive, the pot is back off the heat for a bit. They want things simmering, not rolling - don't wanna break the sauce!
