John Kerry was pursued around COP26 by GB News’s Tom Harwood as the climate envoy refused to answer questions on US blunders at the summit. On Monday, Joe Biden was caught by cameras looking rather sleepy as the Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Mottley spoke to delegates about her nations’ efforts to combat climate change. Washington Post journalist Zach Pursur Brown commentated the US President was “falling asleep” as Mr Biden was filmed closing his eyes during speeches.

Mr Harwood attempted to direct a string of questions to the US climate envoy, asking: “Mr Kerry is a six-car convoy leading by example?

“Mr Kerry is arriving by private jet leading by example?

The Sky News presenter remarked: “Well, let’s cut away from Janet Yellen not entirely because of her pronunciation of Glasgow.”

Ms Yellen had repeatedly pronounced Glasgow as ‘Glas-cow’ in the course of her speech. 

Seemingly unaware of the blunder, she said: “Glasgow and COP26 is a pivotal moment at the start of this decisive decade of climate action.
