United Nation's four former president called for a pivotal action. Since the Paris agreement in 2015 this meeting at Katowice is the most perilous on climate change

Speakers at conference convened a day earlier because they are under pressure to make progress.


what's so special about this conference?

After the landmark Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report on limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 C , which came out in October this is the first conference of parties

According to IPPC the emission should be reduced to 45% by 2030 to keep the 1.5 C goal.

But the recent studies shows that CO2 emission goes up again after a short time decline.


On Sunday the four former UN climate talks president called for urgent action, they said "decisive action in next two year will be crucial"

“These efforts at Katowice will bring the world closer to meeting the goals of Pairs agreement including protecting those most vulnerable to climate change-or push action further down the road, any delay will cost much to respond climate change"

The statement was issued by Frank Bainimarama of Fiji, Salahuddin Mezour of Morocco, Laurent Fabius of France and Manuel Pulgar Vidal of Peru.
  • Climate Change: Where we are in seven chart
  • What is climate change?
Meanwhile, the break between what countries say they are doing and what needs to done has never been wide.

Gebru Jember Endalew who chairs the group of  poorest nations in concession said" The IPPC report made crystal clear that every bit of worming matters, especially by latest developed countries

This also gives hope that by authorizing that limiting global worming to 1.5 C is still possible. 

Here in Katowice, we must work beneficially  together to safeguard that goal can become reality.

Stephen Hawking's final work was launched by his children on Monday which discuss issues from Existence of God to Time Travel and other big questions. His children completed his final book after he died last year.

What are these big questions and what did he write answers to them?


Is there a God?How Did it All Began?What is inside a black hole?Can we predict the future?Is Time Travel possible?Will we survive on Earth?Is there any other intelligent life in Universe?Should we colonize space?How do we shape the future?Multiple challenges Stephen Hawking says the simplest explanation is that God does not exist and…

Russia Trying to Bring back Extinct Animals
