Climate change is one of the true global concern in 21st century and there is no kind of disagreement or dispute over this.
Only issue we can debate and deliberate is how to address this issue and how quickly we can tackle this issue in a way which is least problematic for the human civilization. There has been declaration by many countries like India to be net zero by 2070.
Going towards net zero is not easy especially in countries like India where there are development concerns .It is important that developed countries should come forward and help these developing countries in transition. This is one of the main issue of "Climate Finance" that is who is going to fund these transitions and how we will fund these transitions.
