Great summary of the new UN "global stocktake" report

Assaad is doing a lot for awareness. I want to share his tweet thread (X) that summarizes the new UN "Global Stocktake Report"
The UN released a "global stocktake" taking a hard look at the state of our planet

In short, we are still sleepwalking to a world we will increasingly not recognize

It has 17 key findings which I've tried to translate into non-UN spea

1.) We must not fool ourselves: we are nowhere near on track to keep warming below 2C, let alone 3C, and we must rapidly accelerate renewable energy deployment, electrifying everything and reversing deforestation to make proper progress by 2030

2.) Governments in particular must do much more, and corporations and financial institutions such as investors and banks are not doing much and must step up to deliver credible, accountable and transparent climate action
3.) Climate action is good for health, employment, education, citizens and the planet, but it means disruption to Big Oil and petro-states action. This needs to be addressed head-on
4.) Global GHG emissions must peak by 2025, then decline rapidly and deeply. This isn't on track.
5.) It's now cheaper to move to 100% renewables than to dig fossil fuels and continue to burn them, but powerful lobbies and vested interests are trying to maximize very short-term profits and must be confronted
6.) 6 Repeat finding 5 above for emphasis
7.) Moving to 100% renewables, phasing out fossil fuels (yes, they said that), electrifying everything and reversing deforestation means less poverty, more equity and more inclusion across the board (duh)
8.) Repeat finding 7 for emphasis
9.) We're going to need a shit-load of money to ensure climate refugees don't flood the world because climate change threatens all countries, communities and people
10.) Repeat finding 9 for emphasis
11.) Investing massively more in climate adaptation is good
12.) Some impacts will be irreversible as temperatures increase beyond 1.5 °C (a guaranteed outcome) and we need to plan accordingly
13.) Repeat finding 9 for emphasis
14.) The money for climate adaptation needs to come from rich countries historically responsible for the problem
15.) Repeat finding 14 for emphasis
16.) We don't need new technologies: we have everything we need to scale-up climate action. We just need to deploy existing technologies faster and on a larger scale, while continuing to decrease their costs
17.) Governments need to lead and stop being in the pocket of Big Oil

        Climate awareness is the first step towards achieving our climate goals, and everyone has a role to play in this.
