New Hopes in 2021 for Tackling Climate Change
Countries around the World Are Joining Efforts to Protect Further Climatic Destruction and Environment Degradation
The countries around the world only have a limited amount of time before the entire humanity would starve to death due to the worst destructive effects of climate change, which requires our immediate attention.
The New Year of 2021 could be an essential year in the fight for tackling climate change with technology, which has caused massive destruction across the globe and the consequence could possibly affect the upcoming generation in a harmful way.
During the year 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked chaos worldwide in just a small amount of time, during which around 1.8 million individuals have died after being diagnosed with the viral infection alone, while the death rate has also increased due to other causes including environmental factors.
The viable COVID-19 vaccine has been developed after numerous testing and trials and is currently being gradually distributed in multiple nations throughout the globe.
Paris Conference for crucial negative climate impact
In the month of November 2021, the world leaders around the world are scheduled to be gathered for the successor meeting to the previously conducted meeting in Paris in the year 2015 to discuss regarding tackling climate change causes and avoidance.
The importance of the landmark Paris meeting is that as it was the first discussion during which all countries were able to come together and agree regarding tackling climate change facts and looking forward to preventing further devastation.
During the conference, the target set by the countries in an attempt of tackling climate change solutions regarding carbon emission that was not completed on time by a large scale.
During the Paris Conference, the world was in complete agreement to avoid the possible damaging impact for tackling climate changes which are increasing on a daily basis, along with trying to limit the global temperature from increasing 2C above the level of pre-industrial temperature by the end of this century. The aim of the temperature level was to be kept around 1.5C as much as possible.
The current plans that are observed throughout the world in tackling climate change could possibly breach the expected ceiling of 1.5C limited temperature within the time duration of 12 years or even less, and could possibly hit the mark of 3C of global warming at the end of the 21 century.
The countries present at the time of the Paris deal promised to reorganize after five years and raise their ambitions for reducing carbon emission, which was previously being scheduled to be conducted in Glasgow in November 2020, but due to the pandemic of the deadly viral infection, the conference has now been postponed to be conducted one year later.
Countries signing for deep carbon cut
There has been progress observed in the cutting of deep carbon consumption in helping tackling climate change and to save the planet. During the United Nations General Assembly conducted in September 2020, the President of China Xi Jinping has announced that China is aiming to convert into a carbon-neutral country by the year 2060.
The carbon emission is responsible for around 28% of the global discharge, and completely cutting carbon is an expensive initiative as China is one of the most polluting countries worldwide and this unconditional commitment for providing their part in tackling climate change globally, which is to be followed by China regardless whether other nations are following suit.
In the previous negotiations, most of the countries feared that they might cause disruption in their economy while attempting to decarbonize their environment, while other nations did not provide any contribution in tackling climate changes but were still able to enjoy the results.
Along with China, the United Kingdom has also signed an official commitment and has become the first country with major economic status for net zero emission in June 2019 and assist in tackling climate change and negative impact. Later in March 2020, the European Union also followed the lead to make a better environment for the rest of the world.
After the EU, developed countries, including South Korea and Japan have also joined alongside 110 countries around the world that have aimed to achieve the target of net zero by the mid of this century. When combined together, the countries represent about 65% of the entire carbon global emission and more than 70% of the economy of the world.
