This video sees Kaisa Kosonen talking about the gradual phasing out of fossil fuels. She talks about the IPCC report that if the planet reaches 2degree globally then it will have devastating effects on the weather. 1.5 degrees she says is a much more reasonable goal and says that IPCC thinks that goal can be reached or even below that but we need to act faster.
Moreover Kaisa says we are now in the mission of phasing out emissions. She says that “it is the end of the game for fossil fuels” and that is good news. Something that Judy will hear with open arms it is good news. Let’s hope that these are not empty words.
