00:00:01 Landmark deal reached to address climate change by phasing out harmful gases, including hydrofluorocarbons. Over 197 countries participated in the talks.

🌍 The landmark deal reached in Kigali builds on the 1987 Montreal Protocol to phase out chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and now includes hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs) that have damaged the ozone layer.

🌡️ By including HFCs in the agreement, the world has taken a significant step towards reducing global warming by half a degree centigrade.

🌎 The agreement involved 197 countries and demonstrates the importance of multilateral patience, diplomacy, and collaborative efforts to address climate change.

00:01:05 A landmark deal has been reached to reduce greenhouse hydro fluorocarbons (HFC) gases, allowing the healing of the ozone layer and potentially curbing climate change. Developing countries will be affected the most. Enforcing the agreement may be challenging.

🌍 Reducing hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs) will help heal the ozone layer and mitigate climate change.

💰 Transitioning to HFC alternatives will be costly, especially for developing countries.

⚖️ The legally binding Kigali deal requires developed countries to reduce HFC use by 85% by 2036.
