September 23-29: UN Climate Action Summit
Date:
24th September 2019
Description:
The UN Secretary General is hosting a summit devoted to climate change,
with the aim of calling the world’s attention to the urgent need to implement
the Paris Agreement. The Paris pact has been agreed to by every
country–only the United States has said it intends to leave it. But countries
have not made policies to meet its goals. Of the 197 countries in the
agreement, only seven are on track to keep warming below 2 degrees celsius,
and only two are on track to keep warming below 1.5 degrees celsius. Science
tells us that every fraction of a degree in warming means more hunger, more
sickness, more conflict. The UN Secretary General’s summit is a chance for
the people of the world to rally around real, ambitious policies to solve this
crisis.
