Macron called for a deal that matches the gravity of the situation as predicted by the recent UN Climate Change report
French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday called for a deal at the UN November climate conference that matches the gravity of the situation, after a new report underlined the dire peril posed by climate change.
"The time for outrage is behind us... In November, in Glasgow, let's seal a deal that matches the urgency," he wrote on Twitter after the UN report warned that global warming will see Earth's average temperature reach 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels around 2030.
Le rapport du GIEC est sans appel. À nouveau. Le temps de l’indignation est derrière nous.— Emmanuel Macron (@EmmanuelMacron) August 9, 2021
Accord de Paris, neutralité carbone au niveau européen, loi climat… La France restera du côté de ceux qui agissent. En novembre, à Glasgow, scellons un accord à la hauteur de l’urgence!
