"With the Paris Agreement we pledged to contain global warming to within 1.5 degrees of pre-industrial levels. Most of our countries have renewed this commitment at recent G20 meetings. However, we must be honest with us. themselves: we are breaking this promise. If we continue with current policies, we will reach nearly 3 degrees of global warming by the end of the century "with" catastrophic consequences.
Prime Minister Mario Draghi said this in a video message to the Forum of the Major Economies on Energy and Climate (Mef), promoted by US President Biden.
"The latest UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said that in order to achieve" the climate goals, "we must achieve immediate, rapid and significant reductions in emissions. We cannot simply rely on others: we must all do our part. Within the EU, we have set ambitious goals to reduce emissions and achieve climate neutrality. We must honor the commitments we have made in terms of climate and, in some cases, be ready to take bolder ones ", added Draghi.
