2014/09/23: Better Growth, Better Climate - The New Climate Economy Report

Countries at all levels of income have the opportunity to build lasting economic growth and reduce the immense risk of climate change.

But the next 15 years are critical for action.

Sir Nicolas Stern, auteur du rapport éponyme chiffrant le prix de l'inaction entre 5 et 20% du PIB mondial (5'500 milliards d'euros !):

"Are we going to look our grand-children in the eyes ?

And tell them that we understood the issues, that we recognised the danger and the opportunities, and still we failed to act ?"

Let's act about it: ‪#‎PriceOnCarbon‬ !

Global Action Plan

2014/09/22: Protestation contre l'inaction face au changement climatique. Du jamais vu !!

Hier, cette mobilisation a a réuni des centaines de milliers de personnes à New York et dans plus de 2000 autres endroits du globe. Il ne pouvait pas y avoir de preuve d'amour plus impressionnante pour tout ce que le changement climatique menace - et quelle belle manière de témoigner de l'espoir que nous partageons tous: celui de sauver ce monde et de construire une société basée sur une économie viable resptectueuse de la Nature et de l'Humain.

"Merci de préférer l'espérance à l'indifférence, la mobilisation à la résignation", et il est toujours temps de signer la pétition !
