Politicians and officials have pocketed billions.
Humans have already overheated Earth by 1.1 degrees Celsius (2 degrees Fahrenheit). We have to cancel and retire existing fossil fuel projects as well.

We should feel some optimism that the barriers to addressing it are no longer technological but almost entirely political – and because the worst-case temperature-rise scenarios scientists once feared are no longer considered very likely thanks to the growth in renewable energy, electric vehicles and other zero-emission technology. Though 1.5 degrees of warming would be horrible enough, every fraction of a degree we go beyond that would mean greater human suffering and environmental destruction.
Life-saving vaccines and treatments undermine the political narrative that pharmaceutical companies are capitalist exploiters, a view also growing on the political right. Bancel is in the dock.

Global energy-related carbon emissions reached a record high last year, and another U.N. Oil companies, meanwhile, are backing off their commitments to fight climate change and transition to renewable energy as they rake in record profits from soaring fuel prices. climate conference in Egypt last fall ended without an agreement to phase out fossil fuels.
