U.N. Climate Summit Strikes Deal to Transition Away from Fossil Fuels

The agreement is the first by the United Nations to explicitly call for countries to move away from the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas.

We have confronted realities, and we have set the world in the right direction. We have given it a robust action plan to keep 1.5 within reach. It is a plan that is led by the science. It is a balanced plan that tackles emissions, bridges the gap on adaptation, reimagines global finance and delivers on loss and damage. We must take the steps necessary to turn this agreement into tangible actions. If we unite in action, we can have a profoundly positive effect on all our futures.
