It includes an objective to limit global warming to “well below 2ºC above pre-industrial levels” and “pursue efforts” to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC.

It seems that finally all the members have realized that if they don’t act and make changes to get out of the way, indeed climate change might hit them.

According to the International Energy Association, poor people in developing countries spend about 32% of their daily income in energy (0,40 USD)1. Most of it is spent on dry batteries and kerosene. Average electricity consumption per capita is not enough to power a single 50-watt light bulb continuously in Africa2.
