Climate Reality Project founder and former United States vice president Al Gore speaks at the United Nations Climate Summit (COP25) in Madrid on Wednesday (11/12/2019). He said that Indonesia had shown progress in tackling climate change, but there were still many challenges, especially related to the trend of production, exports and the use of coal energy, which was still high.

MADRID, KOMPAS β€” The last day before the closing of the United Nations climate conference in Madrid, Spain, on Friday (13/12/2019) was marked with pessimism about the likelihood of progressive agreements to reduce the rate of global emissions. Such a situation makes us have to prepare for the worst, with the possibility of temperatures rising by 3 degrees Celsius by the end of this century.

Demonstrations from various civil groups held at the UNFCCC-COP25 complex since Friday morning marked such pessimism. The Friday for Future student movement held a massive demonstration from evening to night.
