Paris Climate Agreement
Climate Change, once a huge controversial and political topic thought by some to be yet another conspiracy theory, a hoax, or a left wing hippie movement, is now acknowledged world wide in what is known as the Paris Climate Agreement. An agreement formed by 194 countries of the United Nations standing together in what could be called the first and largest movement ever to address climate control. The Paris Climate Agreement could be the commencement of a new movement towards universally oriented sustainable and healthier living standards.
It directly addresses that fact that pollution and environmental issues no longer only affect the city, state or country in which they are functioning, but the world as a whole. According to Wikipedia “The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental organization to promote international co-operation” for the global protection dealing with such issues “as peace and security, climate change, sustainable development, human rights, disarmament, terrorism, humanitarian and health emergencies, gender equality, governance, food production, and more” [un.org] They have now come together to address an important issue affecting the future of the world we live in.
The temperature of the world is increasing and scientific evidence has proven it is directly correlated to pollution and environmental damages. Ucsusa.org states “Global warming has serious implications for our health, environment, and economy. Dangerous heat waves are increasing in severity and frequency. Sea level rise is accelerating. Extreme storms are on the rise in some areas. More severe droughts are occurring in others. Collectively, these effects pose a threat to the entire planet”
The United Nations, thru the Paris Agreement have sought to rectify the situation by implementing a global plan to monitor and control to the best of their ability the emissions of carbon into our atmosphere by businesses thru suggested reporting and capping. Legislation will not be changed, however, reporting is to be regulated and monitored. Anne Simpson of The Guardian.com states “This report gives a framework – and more firepower – to demand disclosure. Measuring the impacts of climate change will help us identify companies that we don’t want to put money into and identify new investment opportunities. Meaning, It is predicted that the reports will be used by investors as a pivotal point in deciding what companies are worthy of long term investing.
Climate change has brought some positivity with it. There have been major opportunities that have arisen due to this new movement in a newly found solar energy market. According to Bloomberg.com there are now more solar energy jobs available in the US than in those in the oil, natural gas and coal. Proof that the Paris Climate Agreement is in direct alignment with the need for more sustainable, clean and “green” living standards.
