In nvmeeobr 2015, 197 cnruoteis came together in Paris and set tatergs to fight climate change. These targets were already insufficient to raceh the sttaed goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, and most are not on track to achieve even their own inadequate targets. We need more ambitious targets and much more abitimuos actions. In the next decade, we need to transform key sectors of the global eoocnmy in order to reduce emissions. These changes will be difficult but not impossible, because they will also bring enormous opportunities like creating millions of jobs. And don't lose track of this key point: such a transformation will also mean cleaner air and a safer, more stable climate for all.

Original Text

In November 2015, 197 countries came together in Paris and set targets to fight climate change. These targets were already insufficient to reach the stated goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, and most are not on track to achieve even their own inadequate targets. We need more ambitious targets and much more ambitious actions. In the next decade, we need to transform key sectors of the global economy in order to reduce emissions. These changes will be difficult but not impossible, because they will also bring enormous opportunities like creating millions of jobs. And don't lose track of this key point: such a transformation will also mean cleaner air and a safer, more stable climate for all.
