    From 2021 To 2022 With The Climate Crisis

    2021 Year in Review: Climate action, or blah, blah, blah?

    30 December 2021 (UN News)

    “…To avoid catastrophic climate change, global temperatures rises need to be kept to a maximum of 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels, but…[science found in 2021] that the global average temperature had already risen by about 1.2 degrees, and…that, unless commitments to cut harmful greenhouse gas emissions are not improved, the world is on track to warm by 2.7 degrees this century…[Extreme weather events increased] this year, such as the catastrophic flooding in several western European countries that led to several deaths in July, and devastating wildfires in Mediterranean countries and Russia, in August…

    …[Global] plans mean that fossil fuel production will increase overall, at least until 2040…These findings were laid out in the latest UN Production Gap report…[Addressing the Gap] will require a lot of investment, and an overhaul of the way we interact with the natural world…[and at the most recent UN conference on climate,] nearly 500 global financial services firms had agreed to align $130 trillion – some 40 per cent of the world’s financial assets – with the climate goals set out in the Paris Agreement…

    …[T]he Global Clean Power Transition Statement was announced, a commitment to end coal investments, scale up clean power, make a just transition, and phase out coal by the 2030´s in major economies, and in the 2040´s elsewhere…[But] the biggest coal financers (China, Japan and Republic of Korea) did not join…‘I know you are disappointed. But the path of progress is not always a straight line… and this fight must be won. Never give up. Never retreat. Keep pushing forward,’ said the UN Secretary-General…” click here for more
