Near (the) Philippines, the sea level rise over the last 20 years was probably of the order of three to four times bigger than it was globally. Definitely because of the higher sea level, the damage has been more than what it would have been 100 years before, under similar wind conditions.

Surface temperatures are only part of the wider picture of our changing climate. The impact on our water cycle is already becoming apparent – as manifested by droughts, floods and extreme precipitation.

CO2 is a very stable gas, so it means that there is no sort of chemical reaction which would destroy naturally the CO2 from the atmosphere, so it stays for very long periods, hundreds of years and even more, and that's why as a consequence the actions we take now, or the actions we don't take now will have consequences for a very, very long period.

This year we already announced that the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere was reaching record level. What is clear is that we are already in a very, very challenging situation to stay under two degrees (of warming). So the more commitments are delayed, the more difficult it will be to meet these targets.
