SCCN at The Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week
Reading Time: 2 minutes
Today, I returned from Latin America where “The Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week” was kicked off on 23rd October.
Sadly, it was again big talk and no action!
I held physical events in 4 universities in Peru to launch ‘Net Zero’ movement in Campus. Universities in Peru are now part of @sccnhub (Smart Campus Cloud Network)
Students were super excited but University professors, directors, management were less so.
Hurricane-Otis made landfall on 23rd October near Acapulco in Mexico with maximum sustained winds of 265 km/h according to WMO Specialized Meteorological Center in Miami.
Penchant to keep talking at ministerial level is still continuing at the top level. COP28Dubai may result into talk-shop. As if with anger , the climate reacted with fierce force and battered the region with one of the most rapidly intensifying tropical cyclones on record, at top-level category 5 strength!
Even climate does not want just a gathering of environment ministers , it wants action and action and action towards Net Zero. It wants that humans bring back balance in nature!
Can we do it?
Yes, Youth in Universities can. Provided faculty supports their efforts fully.
