Global warming is a huge and serious threat!
Failure to act on global warming would be “suicidal” warns United General Antonio Guterres.
He warned delegates Nations from Secretary almost 200 nations at the at the Poland conference which was convened to put a stamp of approval on the Paris Accord.
The UN chief warned countries have to make sacrifices but in the end everyone will benefit from the dangers of global warming.
Guterres said failure to take action would compromise their last chance to stop runaway climate change.
“It would not only be immoral, it would be suicidal,” he stressed.
Delegates attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Poland adopted the final agreement.
This was a bold move.
The world now has to convince America to re-join the Paris Accord.
In recent years, the international community has witnessed whacky weather followed by massive destruction costing billions of dollars. Canada is no exception.
This spring and summer, Canadians from coast to coast have had to deal with powerful storms.
Majority of scientists are certain that man made climate change is playing a big role in these strange events.
Scientists make the link between climate change to severe droughts in many parts of Africa and torrential downpours in China and parts of India.
The Paris accord was signed to tackle global warming.
It is not only unfortunate but very disappointing that the United States of America, the most powerful and the most progressive country in the world, decided to pull out of this agreement.
Most governments like Canada, India and China understand and realize global warming is serious.
The key deadline is 2020, when countries must show they have met targets set a decade ago for cutting their emissions, and when they must affirm new, much tougher targets.
President Donald Trump must be convinced by the international community to re-consider its move.
Unless drastic steps are taken immediately, we will global warming at an alarming rate.
Climate change is proving even more disruptive than even scientists’ most pessimistic projections.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is showing positive signs of taking concrete action to stop global warming.
The United States of America accounts for one-seventh of the world’s carbon emissions.
The pledge at the Paris summit was to keep the global rise in temperatures below 2 C. Many agree the future lies in green energy. Climate change is one of the greatest threats of our time.
An increase in global average temperature greater than 2C above pre-industrial levels would result in accelerated melting of glaciers and Arctic ice, continued rising sea levels, more frequent and extreme weather events, difficulties for agriculture and changes in plant and animal life.
