"Recent destructive climate phenomena such as deadly floods, heatwaves and wildfires – both in Europe and around the globe – confirm the report by IPCC that climate change threatens humankind. The time to act is now. The good news is, reducing GHG emissions can go hand in hand with economic growth, as the EU experience shows. We can achieve this but we need every nation in the world to unite to save our planet."
