“There is no time to lose – the realisation that such unprecedented global heating is threatening the lives and livelihoods of people around the world should jerk governments out of their business-as-usual reveries – and the only sane way to respond to this climate crisis is by tackling the root cause – phasing out fossil fuels, and delivering a just transition to renewable energy for all.”
