Tackling climate change could save millions of lives, report says

Residents plod through a flooded street in Licab, Nueva Ecija on July 22, 2018. France's planned tax hike was meant to wean French consumers off fossil fuels, which are believed to contribute to climate change.

Well Mark... the COP24 conference is being described as the most important gathering on climate change since the 2015 Paris agreement.

She cited a recent expert report warning of the consequences of letting average global temperatures rise beyond 1.5 degrees C (2.7 degrees F).

With just 1°C of warming so far, Earth is blighted by raging wildfires, extreme drought and mega-storms made worse by rising sea-levels.

"The question is therefore this: is there sufficient political will to implement the many solutions we have available to promote the aforementioned model of development?" the cardinal queried. "But this ambition also needs to be realised at the Belgian level".

In a rare intervention, presidents of previous United Nations climate summits issued a joint statement as the talks got under way, calling on states to take "decisive action.to tackle these urgent threats".

The protest's organisers estimated a record breaking 75,000 people took part, making it the biggest climate change march to have taken place in Belgium.

At the COP24 climate talks, nations must agree to a rulebook palatable to all 183 states who have ratified the Paris deal.

G20 leaders on Saturday wrapped up their summit by declaring the Paris Agreement "irreversible". The only holdout was the United States, which announced under President Donald Trump that it is withdrawing from the climate pact.

The UN negotiations got off to a chaotic start in the Polish mining city of Katowice Sunday, with the opening session delayed almost three hours by a series of last-ditch submissions.

"I am glad that my friend Emmanuel Macron and the protestors in Paris have agreed with the conclusion I reached two years ago", said Trump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger says he wishes he could travel back in time like the cyborg he played in "The Terminator" so he could stop fossil fuels from being used.

Despite the fact that little support has been provided by either health or climate finance mechanisms, there are a wide range of proven strategies and interventions to protect health from climate change.

Brazil's strongman president-elect Jair Bolsonaro, for one, has promised to follow the American lead during his campaign. "For many people, regions, even countries, this is already a matter of life or death".

"We demand more ambition from our Belgian decision makers on the European and worldwide level", Climate Coalition Nicolas Van Nuffel said.

A key issue up for debate is how the fight against climate change is funded, with developed and developing nations still world's apart in their demands.

For this, richer nations must provide funding - $100 billion per year by 2020 - to steer developing countries towards greener energy while drastically drawing down their own emissions.

"Or, God forbid, (we) ignore the irrefutable evidence and become the generation that betrayed humanity", Bainimarama said.
