Renewable energy, sustainable mass transportation, and energy efficiency all must be prioritized equally in order for these measures to be effective. Additionally, in order to act on climate effectively, all countries across the entire globe must try and pursue the climate targets outlined in the Paris Climate Accord. Green City Times has developed a guide of aspirational policies and strategic actions that, when implemented, will slow the rate of global warming. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), reflecting the international scientific consensus on the issue, has set the goal to keep global warming under 2° Celsius (3.6° Fahrenheit) by mid-century, and recommends pursuing an even lower warming cap of 1.5° C (2.7° F).
