Scientists from across the globe gathered last week at the conference "Our Common Future Under Climate Change" to look at how the world can cut #emissions and prepare for the impacts of #climatechange. The largest international science conference in the run-up to the Paris climate summit this December confirmed that #science offers robust foundations for ambitious climate action in the years to come. #ClimateChange #ClimateAction #COP21 #CFCC15 #COP21 #Paris2015
Second phase of the #Kyoto Protocol adopted today by the Council of the EU. This phase serves as a bridge towards a post-2020 global climate change agreement. EU Member States and Iceland agreed jointly on a 20% reduction in #GHG for a period between 2013 - 2020. Click on the photo to read more on the decision taken. #ClimateAction #Climatechange
#Happybirthday DG CLIMA! The European Commission's Directorate-General for #ClimateAction was established in February 2010, so we celebrate our five years today. Guess what we wished for when we blew out the candles? (Hint: It has to do with global average temperatures…)
