At this time, climate scientists believe we need to do two things in parallel to avoid seriously raising the risk of tipping points:

  1. Reduce Emissions from Fossil Fuel to Near Zero by 2040 – the 1.5Deg C Paris target
  2. In parallel use organic processes to start serious capture and sequestration of CO2 from the atmosphere.
  3. For emphasis let's add that this means counting everything and not allowing Fossil Fuel industry growth.

Since there is some question as to various governments' commitment to meet these targets, activists are attempting to emphasize the necessity of making the commitment and following through on it.
