Greatness is most manifest in climate action and efforts to transform a world that lets humanity survive and thrive

"This is why we continue to advance the call for world leaders to keep to the 1.5 goal, and to recalibrate climate finance contributions that allow vulnerable countries to rapidly upgrade everything to keep to this Paris goal. 1.5 can only be achieved with an unchanging collective resolve for immediate and drastic action at global and local levels as called for by the Paris Agreement." #CVF #1o5C #ClimateAction

"Wholesale solar power prices have reached another record low in India, faster than analysts predicted and further undercutting the price of fossil fuel-generated power in the country. The tumbling price of solar energy also increases the likelihood that India will meet – and by its own predictions, exceed – the renewable energy targets it set at the Paris climate accords in December 2015." | via the Guardian #ClimateAction #Renewables #Solar
