POGIL, Sweden—The last time the United Nations climate summit was held in Pogil in southern Sweden, climate scientists were worried about how to respond to a record-setting heat wave that left millions without electricity and nearly 800 dead.
The first session of the meeting focused on the effects of climate change, with a discussion of the effects on humans and ecosystems and the need to act now to curb global warming.
The two main questions that came up during the meeting were how we might better understand climate change and how to deal with the effects that it could have on ecosystems.
The meeting focused mostly on the impacts of climate, but some scientists have been talking about the impacts on humans.
The last time climate was on the agenda was during the Copenhagen Climate talks in 2009, when governments pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% compared to 1990 levels.
But since then, scientists have largely focused on how to adapt to the impacts.
Climate change is the most important problem for the world and the main topic of the talks.
The summit will be held in Stockholm from November 15-19.
