We all know about the current energy crisis and how important it is to do something about it, but how much time do we have? The Climate Clock, installed on the exterior of the Ministry of Ecological Transition (MiTE), shows just how much time is left to take the necessary action to limit global warming to the 1.5° C limit set by the Paris Agreement: we have just under 7 years, according to scientists at the MCC (Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change).
The installation aims to raise the awareness of all citizens on the issue of climate change, so that everyone can feel part of a shared path, which will lead to a low-carbon future.
Minister Roberto Cingolani, during the clock installation event, said “The time that these clocks indicate is the time we have to act. A time we can reverse. The ecological transition is the main tool for moving these hands and limiting the risks to which climate change exposes us. The hour that ticks is the hour of will”.
Roberto Moneta, CEO of the GSE, during the presentation said “the battle against global warming is the challenge of the 21st century and every action of the GSE is aimed at encouraging and supporting citizens, entrepreneurs, professionals and institutions in the path of energy transition of our country to achieve the goals of 2030 and 2050. With the direction of MITE we will be able to leave a new environmental footprint for future generations”.
