"The world is at a crossroads. This is the year, this is the time, where the world will have to foster an agreement to curb emissions at the necessary scale while enhancing adaptation efforts worldwide. It is not an option to continue business as usual and ignore the challenges of climate change.

"All evidence from science suggests that we need to develop a more sustainable way of living. In 2050, our planet will be inhabited by nine billion people. And of those, eight billion will be living in what we now call developing countries. In order for all to have access to the same resources and economic growth, we are forced to find a better way to make use of the world's resources. We cannot continue polluting our planet and rely on fossil fuels the way we do today. That is simply not viable. Scientists tell us that now is the time to act; because if we don't do something today, it will become increasingly expensive to carry out the necessary measures in the future. In short: the cost of acting against climate change will only keep rising the longer we wait."
