In this compelling TEDtalk, President Mary Robinson reminds us that climate change is the biggest human rights challenge of our time. Climate change currently impacts those that are often in the poorest parts of the world the most, worsening inequality. It is crucial for all of us to work together right now to put the world track to a better future.
If we tackle climate change now, we will have “a world that is much more equal and much fairer, and much better for health, and better for jobs and better for energy security, than the world we have now, if we have switched sufficiently and early enough to renewable energy, and no one is left behind. No one is left behind.” Mary Robinson, 2015
The TEDtalk on climate justice was held as part of the TEDWomen Conference 2015, which took place in Monterey, CA, USA.
