2410. Shifts in focus.
Today alone I attended three webinars in three major institutions on climate. One university, one think tank, one trade association.
What was going to happen by 2040 is now going to happen by 2030
International cooperation will be required
There is no stopping at 1.5 because the carbon already heating the atmosphere will continue to trap heat raising the temperature.
Our hope is technology and standards
No mention in any of the three of the fossil fuel industry (notice how 32 helps this . ‘its not us energy companies, it is the international community..”)
No talk of a plan if we are not able to limit to 1.5
No mention of a single name of a potential person as leader.
And I was happy to notice no use of the phrases clean energy meaning natural gas vs. coal and oil, net zero nor carbon footprint.
