SSE Weekly Colloquium | Fight against CO₂
Climate change poses a fundamental threat to the species that live on the earth. To adequately address this crisis, we must urgently reduce the carbon footprint and prepare for the consequences of global warming. Currently, China is the world's largest emitter of CO₂ and is responsible for more than a quarter of the world's overall greenhouse gas emissions. To this end, we should pay more attention and effort to achieve the “Carbon neutrality” target by 2060.
