Until now.

“You all carry a heavy burden on your shoulders, and you do not need me to tell you that the eyes and hopes of the world are upon you to act with all dispatch, and decisively because time has quite literally run out.”

“The recent IPCC [UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] report gave us a clear diagnosis of the scale of the problem. What we will do with a growing global population, creating ever increasing demand on the planet’s finite resources.

“As we tackle this crisis, our efforts cannot be a series of independent initiatives running in parallel, the scale and scope of the threat we face a call for a global systems level solution based on radically transforming our current fossil fuel based economy to one that is genuinely renewable and sustainable.

“So there’s going to be my plea today is for countries to come together to create the environment that enables every sector of industry to take the action required.”

Here we need a vast military style campaign to marshal the strength of the global private sector with trillions at his disposal, far beyond global GDP, and with the greatest respect, beyond even the governments of the world’s leaders.”
