COP THAT - The United Nations Climate Change Conferences are yearly conferences held in the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). They serve as the formal meeting of the UNFCCC Parties (Conference of the Parties, COP) to assess progress in dealing with climate change, and beginning in the mid-1990s, to negotiate the Kyoto Protocol to establish legally binding obligations for developed countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. From 2005 the Conferences have also served as the "Conference of the Parties Serving as the Meeting of Parties to the Kyoto Protocol" (CMP); also parties to the Convention that are not parties to the Protocol can participate in Protocol-related meetings as observers. From 2011 the meetings have also been used to negotiate the Paris Agreement as part of the Durban platform activities until its conclusion in 2015, which created a general path towards climate action. The first UN Climate Change Conference was held in 1995 in Berlin.

 

 

With the advent of the UNCCCs in 1995 the world finally had a forum to deal with climate change and negotiate international agreements in a manner that is likely to yield results.

 

There has been a Conference every year since the founding assembly at which many important Agreements as to targets and issues were raised and resolved, though, having agreed in principle some parties have failed to follow through once they realized that economic competition could get tougher in the sacrifice for a better world. In this case a better world is a place that is sustainable for future generations.

 

 

 

MISS CLIMATE CHANGE - If you are going to skip school, what better reason than to try and save the planet for when you are older and your elders are sitting on the climate controlling hands.

 

 

 

Greta Thunberg skiftede skoledag ud med strejke foran den svenske Rigsdag. Nu kan hun få brug for at skippe skolen for at besøge en verdensstjerne.

 

 

 

Kan en skolstrejk lyfta frågan tillräckligt högt? - Greta Thunbergs skolstrejk verkar äntligen vara något som får fler att lyssna. Där forskningsrapporter inte tycks bita ordentligt på opinionen skapar en oerhört påläst och konkret 15-åring uppmärksamhet kring frågan.

SECRETARY GENERAL - António Guterres and Greta Thunberg at the COP 24 conference of the parties on climate change. Where the extremely brave and thoughtful climate activist has got the world's attention, she now needs to look at what needs to be done to apply the global warming brakes.

 

Might we suggest a need to concentrate on building the infrastructure for electric vehicles, encourage low carbon shipping, build more wind farms and make houses that are virtually energy self-sufficient. These are the actions that will bring about change. The only way to make this happen is to insist on targets that includes programmes to deliver from each nation, with sanctions for those countries who will not do the right thing -such as the climate criminals Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Some environmental problems need research money to take ideas to technology level 9 for market.

 

Other ways of reducing our carbon footprints might be to eat less meat. Veganism and vegetarianism are ways to go if you can, or at least think of cutting down on beef and lamb, in favour of chicken and fish. You'll feel a whole lot healthier and could live longer. Also, try not to have too many children, where population growth is putting pressure on our resources all round. Be cooler dudes!
