10:00:23 Soundbite by Connie Hedegaard, (in ENGLISH): Today planet earth got its diagnosis by the scientific community. And I would make this parallel: if you as a person got a diagnosis from doctors who said that with 95% certainty you are having a very dangerous disease, would you then do nothing? Or would you seek a cure? I think the message we have gotten from science today is it is more important than ever to seek the cure. And that is of course also why in the European Union we are now trying to define our targets for the next period, the period up to 2030. 00:00:37
