13. Climate action

"In 2015, the global investment in renewable energies amounted to 286,000 million dollars, more than twice the amount invested in fossil fuels."

Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) have increased by almost 50 per cent since 1990.

Emissions grew more quickly between 2000 and 2010 than in each of the three previous decades.

From 1880 to 2012, the average global temperature increased by 0.85ºC.
