"The ravages of a rapidly warming climate are happening every day and will only get worse especially for the world’s most vulnerable. Emergency action is more necessary than ever as we no longer have the luxury of time. A thorough emergency plan should address the biggest challenges that are limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees, as is proposed in the Club of Rome’s Climate Emergency Plan: The transformation of energy systems that still rely heavily on fossil fuels; the need to rethink pricing and growth; ensure greater materials efficiency and circularity; and recognition that it must be a socially equitable transformation. We have the capabilities: we must now find the will."
