Five years before the adoption of the Paris Agreement, an international framework for combating global warming, Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg posted a video message saying, "No necessary measures have been taken. I complained.
The Paris Agreement is an international framework for global warming countermeasures adopted in 2015, with the goal of making efforts to limit the rise in global average temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to before the Industrial Revolution.
Environmental activist Greta Thunberg posted a video message on her Twitter account, five years before it was adopted on the 12th of this month.
In this proceeding, Mr. Greta complained, "The necessary measures have not been taken at all. The difference between what we should work on and what is actually being done is widening every moment."
He pointed out that, as it stands, the amount of greenhouse gases that can be emitted to keep the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius will be used up within seven years.
Greta emphasized that "hope lies with us citizens," and called for cooperation to change people's consciousness and take action.
On the 12th of this month, the United Nations and France will host a summit on climate change, and governments will announce their own policies, but it seems that it will be a focus to respond to the voice that the measures so far are not sufficient.
