COP26 will fail unless the following systemic constraints are overcome: “the tyranny of consensus,” the demand of net zero and the outdated science and state control of IPCC

“The UK could become a fantastic host, create an atmosphere [of unity and constructive discussion], or the UK could step on a banana skin and before you know it you have a midnight session in a COP where some procedural issue has become a major crisis. These are the kind of known unknowns that are always part of a COP scenario.” (Achim Steiner UNDP).

 What procedural issue might he be anticipating: perhaps: the tyranny of consensus” the demand for “net zero”, and “outdated science or state control of 1PCC”

What procedural issue might Steiner be anticipating? Perhaps the (lack of) voting procedure?
