11:05 am
carbon emission reductions. now that the, that is really seen as a very important part of that of, of actually staying on course to try to go towards this 1.5 degrees centigrade and not go too far beyond that cap. because right now things would be, as many people have said here, catastrophic unless they're reduced a before 2030. now furthermore, finance is a major issue and there's a lot of debate from small countries under developed countries are fighting against climate change having experienced so many of them. extreme events, forest fires, droughts, floods are very much a feature of this, this summit, unlike others, is the number of people who witnessed climate change, who, who feel strongly that more money should go to poor countries to actually take it on. furthermore, compensation for the losses due to climate change, a very vexed subject. yes. the situation here is particularly how should i put it
