On September 23rd, 2014, leaders from around the world met in New York City to discuss the most pressing issue facing our world today: climate change. They recognized climate change as an urgent matter that needs immediate attention, and vowed to take the steps necessary to reduce harmful emissions. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated, “This Summit was not about talk. History is made by action. And now we have seen that the world is ready to act.”
Actions do indeed speak louder than words, and if the UN is to keep it’s commitments, serious changes are right around the corner. Many countries have ambitious goals for the next few years, let alone 2015. If you would like to see a few of the countries who committed and what their goals are, visit the UN’s website at the address below.
Change can’t happen until we all work together to create a solution. The Climate Summit of 2014 made some monumental goals, the next step is seeing those goals to fruition. Here’s to 2015 and a global agreement that will bring peace and renewal to our world!
If you would like to learn a little bit more about the Summit, here is a link to USA Today’s article about the event.
“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.” -Pablo Picasso
