THE CLIMATE CRISIS: TOO MUCH TALK, NOT ENOUGH ACTION! - Info Slides

Over the last 40 years, international climate negotiations have achieved incredible successes: from the creation of global climate institutions, to the establishment of yearly international exchanges, to the adoption of globally recognised treaties.
However, climate negotiations have still failed to achieve their main purpose: rapid, deep and sustained reductions in global emissions.
One reason for this is the lack of clear legal obligations to guide national and global action.
That is why all eyes are currently on the International Court of Justice. Through a so-called “advisory opinion” it could soon establish binding guidelines for the protection of climate and human rights and hold states accountable for failing to keep their climate promises.
This is a once in a generation opportunity to hold polluters accountable for their actions. This advisory opinion could hopefully be a catalyst that prevents the planet from overshooting 2°C and finally closing the loopholes in previous Climate Agreements.

    Talking more with less action is effortless when it comes to save the climate crisis. Is high time they minimize their talk and focus on actions.

        The call for clear legal obligations to guide global climate action is crucial in addressing the climate crisis. Despite notable achievements in international climate negotiations, the lack of enforceable guidelines has hindered the necessary rapid and sustained reductions in global emissions. The focus on the International Court of Justice to provide an "advisory opinion" and establish binding guidelines for climate and human rights protection is a significant step. Holding states accountable for unmet climate promises is a pivotal opportunity that could serve as a catalyst in preventing further environmental damage and ensuring the planet's sustainability. It emphasizes the importance of legal frameworks to drive concrete action and close loopholes in climate agreements.

          @rukia_ahmed_abdi You are very right! Even though many climate negotiations have taken place and some progress has been made, we are nowhere near the final target of 1.5 degrees Celsius. Countries and world leaders must finally take tougher action and introduce binding plans and noncompliance measures to tackle this crisis effectively in the long term. The International Court of Justice is an incredibly powerful body that has the opportunity to lead countries along this path.

            This is why we should work towards make sure we have laws that dictate civil expectation. Time to walk the talk.

                  Exactly. Talk and more talk does not really solve any problems
