While the climate is warming, the political involvement remains tepid. It might be all doom and gloom if countries don’t reach agreements over climate change in 2020. The BBC reports an increasing need to accelerate state’s decision-making to take place before 2020 or time will run out to implement them.
Why it’s important? The BBC points out that the time frame at which countries set plans is usually 5 to 10 years. Therefore, in order to reach climate goals within 2030, the goals have to be set and cosigned before 2020. The article stresses the urgency to implement political legislation, much sooner than concrete actions.
