Is 2021 going to be the year the world finally gets serious about climate change? Actually, maybe yes.

There are some big things on the horizon in terms of climate change action, such as the Biden climate plan, Chinese energy policy, and the COP26 conference happening in Glasgow this November. To kick the year off right I thought I'd collect my thoughts on five key events that will (or likely will) happen this year. As I wanted this to be a fairly snappy video I of course omitted a ton of stuff - let me know in the comments what you think the other big stories will be!
