Countries need to work together to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in order to avoid climate change
A system needs to be devised where quotas are fairly allocated and countries that cannot fulfil their obligations allowed to trade with those who can remove CO2.
Even with the COVID-19 lockdown pulling the brakes on economies, CO2 emission hit a new record in May
Carbon dioxide recorded at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii reached 417 parts per million in May, higher than the record of 414.8 ppm set last year.
Last year, the cyclone season was a monster with six severe, six very severe, and three extremely severe cyclone storms.
Coronavirus will cause the biggest fall in CO2 emissions since WWII but won't stop climate change: WMO
WMO expects a six percent drop in carbon emissions this year but warned it could be followed by higher emissions than before COVID-19.
Older forests have a limit to how much CO2 they absorb, planting new forests could help in fight against climate change
Carbon sinks made up of older trees, might be weaker and incapable to absorb the higher levels of CO2 from the atmosphere.
