"I'm here to SOUND THE ALARM! The world must wake up. We're on a highway to climate hell with our foot still on the accelerator, putting the world on course for climate catastrophe. Greenhouse gas emissions keep growing, global temperatures keep rising, and our planet is fast approaching tipping points that will make climate chaos irreversible."
“Human activities are driving and accelerating biodiversity loss, which in turn is undermining our ability to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Entire ecosystems are heading toward collapse, with devastating consequences for people and planet.”
"Science has highlighted the risk of climate tipping points for a long time, but sometimes in COP negotiations people don't talk about the risks, and it needs to be taken seriously when negotiating global agreements to avoid out of control temperatures setting off nasty feedback loops and runaway climate change."
