This #dataviz from climate scientist and @IPCC_CH author @ed_hawkins shows rising temperatures through the decades.

🔷 2011-2020 was the warmest decade on record.
🔷 Since the 1980s, each decade has been warmer than the previous one. https://t.co/6oVp1qCGej

A new momentum is emerging. Many large emitters have committed to achieving zero net emissions by 2050. The main goal of the @UN this year is to build a global coalition for carbon neutrality. Every country, city & business must adopt an ambitious roadmap to reach this target.

#DYK Households consume 29% of global energy & contribute to 21% of resultant CO2 emissions. Our climate hero – the Energy Expert – never wastes electricity & always turns off the lights when they’re not needed. Learn more: https://t.co/ZNiOMqwrFq #ActNow https://t.co/GgZVnyLv59

7️⃣2️⃣percent of countries have adopted at least one national-level climate change adaptation planning instrument. Although there is progress, nature-based solutions are lagging. #AdaptationGap Read more about planning for adaptation here⤵️ https://t.co/mPJwQoW0Y2

Implementation of adaptation action is growing.

But of over 1,700 adaptation initiatives surveyed, only 3% reported bringing real reductions to climate risks posed to the communities where the projects were being implemented.

⚠️Lead, identified as one of the 10 chemicals of major public health concern globally, has wide-ranging effects on health, including societal & economic impacts.

Eliminating the danger of lead-paint exposure is a globally achievable goal.

It is a moral imperative to help those already suffering from the effects of climate change to adapt.

Yet, huge gaps remain in our support for developing countries.

Adaptation is crucial and must not be the forgotten component of #ClimateAction.
