United Nations Climate Report

The united nations climate report is published and can be downloded here.

I really like the summary below:

Overall, this report finds many reasons for optimism, but much work remains. It’s clear that business as usual simply isn’t good enough anymore. We must do more – much more – in areas related to mitigation, adaptation, and the finance to support all of this work. And we must do it quickly.

And the quote from UN Secretary General António Guterres

I want to hear about how we are going to stop the increase in emissions by 2020, and dramatically reduce emissions to reach net-zero emissions by midcentury.

This quote brings it quite to the point, the world by now knows that we need to change, but what are those changes? I really wnat to see and hear them too.

Here a few key statments from the Climate Report:

The bottom line is that while momentum exists, we need much more climate ambition.

The race against climate change is one we can and must win.

While climate action has accelerated since Paris, it still falls far short of an unprecedented transformation needed to limit impacts of climate change.
