The Climate Impact
Fighting climate change requires transitioning our global energy to run on wind, solar and other renewable sources and improving the ways in which we leverage existing energy. It is about growing food for a global population approaching nine billion people and making the earth’s population more efficient and less pollutant. The challenge is to achieve climate justice for those most adversely affected. Developed countries are primarily responsible for climate change through economic development, from which they have previously benefited.
The 2015 climate change summit in Paris clearly demonstrated the need for all countries and individuals to consider and reduce their carbon emissions, and pursue less polluting models of development. The conference negotiated a global agreement on the reduction of climate change, which represented a consensus of the representatives of the 196 parties attending it which have been formalised in a legally binding agreement.
