Yes, because that is exactly the signal that trade and industry need to start investing in renewable energy on a large scale.

 25.2% (219 votes)
Yes, because it is useful in that it draws the attention to the need for a transition to renewable energy. Nothing will happen without targets.

 23.6% (205 votes)
No, because we really need fossil fuels to cater for our growing energy needs. Such targets will only disturb the market.

 24.8% (215 votes)
No, because the UN is not in the position to enforce anything. Binding agreements are useless; it would be better to explore specific targets per country.
