Save the earth and humanity
The climate risk grows day by day and world leaders have been unable to reach an agreement, which should be binding and acceptable for both developed and developing nations, after one Climate Summit after another. Lessening the temperature by cutting the emission of Carbon Dioxide is the toughest challenge before the world. Nation works for development for its people. When their very existence is in jeopardy, what use is that of the development? The Paris Climate Summit - Conference of Parties 21, is very important as it comes close on the heels of United Nations warning that 2015 is set to be the warmest year. The first and foremost task before the world leaders gathered in Paris to participate in conference of Climate Change is to development unanimity between developed, developing and under developed countries. Paris Climate Change Summit is one of the biggest gatherings of world leaders out of United Nations General Assembly. With participation from 190 countries in all, the summit will be attended by 40,000 delegates, journalists, observers and exhibitors. They have assembled in Paris to reach a deal to reduce global temperatures. The developed nations have greater responsibility to save the world as well as humanity from the growing climate risk. They must deliver on the promise they made of contributing 100 million dollar to developing nations and they are also required to provide all technological help to developing nation in procuring clean energy. Their approach towards the developing country must not be discriminatory. It is only due to the all our race for industrialization in developed countries that the temperature of the earth has risen alarmingly. As far as India is concerned, it has the capability and the biggest democratic to show the world a vision how to deal with the growing challenge of cutting down of the emission of carbon dioxide on the earth. It is only because of deforestation for the sake of industrialization that the hills are melting and there occur landslide, abnormal rain, drought, rising sea level and the temperature of the earth. If the emission level of carbon is not checked without any loss of time, the existence of all living beings will be wiped out from the earth. There is high expectation from the Paris Climate Change globally. If we did not learn from the natural calamities in the recent past that how they harmed the living beings, it would be our gravest folly. World leaders pledging for immediate action, calls that time is running out, International bodies urging nations to wake up and act and summits over summits, nothing has really turned out to be effective at least that's what the data says. World Meteorological Organization's conclusion that Greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere reached a record high for the 30th year in a row clearly shows ineffectiveness of the measures taken over the decades. Unwillingness of developed countries to do more for cutting emissions and the dilly dallying towards contributions for funds they pledged in 2009's Copenhagen summit to help developing nations is key to the trust deficit. Developing countries are demanding a robust agreement that expands economic opportunities, not one that erodes their interests even as climate risks grow.
