UN Climate Chief Says We Have ‘Two Years’ To Save The Planet. Says More Money Is Needed, Increases In ‘Gender Equality’

One of the things that need to be increased immediately is “a quantum leap in climate finance this year,” Stiell contends. Stiell says, “As of today, national climate plans – called Nationally Determined Contributions or NDCs – in aggregate will barely cut emissions at all by 2030.”

Stiell went on to imply that thing defeating climate change outweighs trying to cure pandemics, or ending poverty and hunger, and even suggested that increasing “gender equality” can help in curbing climate change. He stated:

Let’s consider for a moment what is up for grabs if we do make the next two years really count. Bold new national climate plans will be a jobs jackpot and economic springboard to boost countries up that global ladder of living standards.

In the face of crop-destroying droughts, much bolder climate action to curb emissions and help farmers adapt will increase food security and lessen hunger. Cutting fossil fuel pollution will mean better health and huge savings for governments and households alike. The transformative potential of bold climate action – in tandem with steps to advance gender equality – is one of the fastest ways to move away from business as usual…
