Once upon a time, Ann* and KP** were engaged.
They couldn’t live without each other. Ann needed KP to be safe and feel a sense of security, and to discipline herself to maintain a sustainable and green household.
On the other hand, KP would be nothing without Ann. KP needed Ann to carry out life targets and aims.
Yet, word had it that Ann was not ready to commit to the relationship. In fact, Ann had not been fulfilling the sweet promises between them.
At the same time, KP couldn’t wait forever. KP would leave Ann soon, or would eventually die of heartbreak.
It had been long suspected that the relationship will end soon, but things took a turn during the UN Bonn III meeting recently.
Ann and KP got married!!

But that was not all.
The day after the wedding was the last day of the AWG-KP Session.
During the session, a youth delegate asked the chair, “Will you marry me?“
Perhaps others would think she was being very demanding, but she was doing so not only for herself, but for the greater good.
“We can build commitment gradually, but it starts now with an adequate 2nd commitment
period with Annex I targets that follow the science to keep temperatures below 1.5°. So this means an aggregate target for Annex I Parties of at least -40% based on 1990, without offsets and loopholes, and a review of its adequacy.
“This means everybody must do their share.
“It means, we need them to make more ambitious targets public before we meet again.”
Nevertheless, she liked leaders who were decisive, and who could make the right choices.
“But time is not on our side, we need to order the cake.
“To do this we need a location, please tell us that we can send the cake to Cancun and hold the wedding ceremony there. Because I am young, I won’t, we can’t wait for you forever!”
For now, let’s watch closely how world leaders will respond to the proposal and demands!
True love needs commitment. Do we truly love our world, our people, and our future generations?
Will this end with ‘happily ever after’?
If yes, how long are we willing to make it last?
