The fight against climate change goes hand in hand with growth

to fight against climate change they don’t need to sacrifice their economic expansion and growth

Among the objectives achieved at the World Summit of Regions for Climate (WSRC) in Paris is the commitment of each Country to carry out all the “necessary efforts” so the world’s medium temperature does not exceeds the 1.5 degrees and so avoid “the most catastrophic impacts of climate change”. The agreement is legally binding but not the decision that comes with it, nor the national’s emission reduction objectives. This means that there will be no penalties but a way to follow up on what was promised.

 

187 countries of the 195 that take part in the UN’s Convention on Climate Change have made national commitments to the fight against climate change that will come into force in 2020 and will be inspected every five years, so each country has to take the necessary actions to accomplish its objectives.

 

More and more countries have realized that to fight against climate change they don’t need to sacrifice their economic expansion and growth. Tokyo has made the commitment to reduce its 2013 emissions levels a 26% in 2030.

 

The Japanese fist minister, Shinzo Abe, assured that Japan will fight the climate change without sacrificing the economic progress. The Kyodo agency’s release states the words of the Nippon entrepreneur “We will accomplish our objective without sacrificing our economic growth”

“We will make Japan even stronger (in the battle against global warming) and we will keep playing an important part in the international community” assured Abe in his statement.

 

The year 2015 will be remembered as an important breaking point in the transition to a low level of CO2 emissions and in the increase of the living standards, not only for the present inhabitants of this planet, but for the future generations.
