Phần tiếng Anh:

U.S. President Barack Obama urged more than 150 world leaders to “rise to this moment” at the U.N. climate summit in Paris. Addressing the leaders at the start of two weeks of talks Obama said their efforts will be measured by “the suffering that is averted and a planet that is preserved.” China is the world’s top emitter of greenhouse gases and the U.S. is second. The U.N. summit will include two weeks of negotiations in an attempt to reach a deal aimed at steering the global economy away from its dependence on fossil fuels.

Some of the world’s richest people are also teaming up to fight climate change. The co-founder of Microsoft has recruited billionaires such as Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and 20 countries to boost research and development in clean energy. Gates announced the Mission Innovation initiative at the Paris summit, pledging billions of dollars of investment in clean energy technologies. His group will advance the basic research done by governments by putting in private capital to change the way energy is produced and consumed. Gates had earlier pledged $2 billion of his own money for this effort.

Finally, Tunisia’s 3,000 year history of olive farming is under threat because of the extremes of climate change. Tunisia is one of the world’s leading olive oil exporters but around 80 percent of its 80 million olive trees manage to survive solely on rainwater. That means that with rising temperatures and reduced rainfall olive oil production in the country could be significantly reduced. One report predicts that output could be halved by 2050. Tunisia is addressing the challenge by preparing new irrigated plantations and switching to local olive tree varieties that are more resistant to drought.
