The representative of Climate and  Clean Air Coalition have agreed to accelerate efforts to significantly reduce short-lived climate pollutants by the end of the next decade in order to reduce global warming.  At a meeting before the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit, CCAC’s High-Level Assembly put forward a  2030 vision statement that aims to ensure that the earth’s atmosphere continues to enable the planet to thrive.

This is by limiting global warming to one point five degrees Celcius and drastically reducing air pollution.  In a message to the Assembly, the President of Finland, Sauli Niinisto reiterated the urgency for climate action because climate change is fast impacting the Arctic than could be imagined.  He said reducing black carbon emissions is the most immediate way to limit further damage.

The European Commissioner for Climate Action and  Energy, Miguel Arias Canete, reminded delegates to step up mitigation efforts across the global energy sector and called on countries to work with the CCAC to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas production.  Short-lived climate pollutants like methane, black carbon and hydro fluoro-carbons also known as super pollutants are more powerful than carbon dioxide at warming the planet.  But because they are short-lived in the atmosphere preventing emissions can rapidly reduce the rate of warming.
