While the 2015 Paris Agreement committed signatories to keeping global warming to “well below” 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels, and preferably to 1.5 degrees, carbon levels in the atmosphere have since grown.

“We commit to tackle the existential challenge of climate change,” the G20 draft, seen by Reuers, promised.

“We recognise that the impacts of climate change at 1.5 degrees are much lower than at 2 degrees and that immediate action must be taken to keep 1.5 degrees within reach.”

Is-Segretarju Ġenerali tan-NU Antonio Guterres qal nhar il-Ġimgħa li d-dinja kienet qed tgħaġġel lejn id-diżastru klimatiku u l-mexxejja tal-G20 għandhom jagħmlu aktar biex jgħinu lill-pajjiżi ifqar. Aqra iktar.
