Climate Summit in Dubai: Time to Make Up Lost Ground After a Year of Regression!

It has been clear for some time that the world has a huge amount of ground to make up in the battle against climate change. This has been made abundantly clear over the past 12 months with the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report stating that urgent and unprecedented action is needed to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. As a result, the 2020 Climate Summit in Dubai represents an important opportunity for the world to come together and create the impetus needed for collective action to tackle this pressing issue. The summit begins with a moment of urgency. From the devastation caused by powerful hurricanes in the Caribbean to the Australian wildfires that ravaged entire rainforests this past summer, the need for synchronized global action on climate change has never been more apparent. If the world is to succeed in meeting the impacts of increased global temperatures, it must look to Dubai. The summit offers the potential to bring about lasting changes in the way that the world tackles climate change. Of course, this won’t be easy- there is an increasingly large gap between rich and poor nations in terms of emissions, finance, and technical know-how that needs to be addressed if progress is to be achieved. The summit will provide a platform to help bridge these divides, with the aim of allowing all countries to share ideas and pool resources in order to fight the global threat of climate change. The summit also presents a welcome opportunity to discuss how technology can play a role in the fight against climate change. It will provide a chance to learn more about renewable energy and energy efficiency, which many countries are investing in. With this technology, countries can benefit from reduced emissions, improved energy security, and a more sustainable economy. As the summit draws near, there is much for the world to do make up for lost time in the global fight against climate change. If the summit can bring about the framework and resources needed to effect positive change, then the future impact of global warming could be significantly reduced. The time to act is now.
