The author reflects on the effort of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to convince member countries to commit to the campaign related to climate change. Despite the claim of the UNFCCC about the creation of a long-term climate roadmap, he points out that the draft depicts a series of climate aspirations rather than a roadmap.
