UNCC Paris


For those who are unaware, participating countries have committed to cut carbon dioxide emissions as well as emissions from other gases.
Gases include: Methane (CH4), Nitrous oxide (N2O), Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), Perfluorocarbons (PFCs), Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6)

Its goal was to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by growing industrial sectors and high fossil fuel consumption.

Over a year ago, we launched a petition with the intent of raising awareness towards global warming and the Kyoto Protocol.
Path to 2015, Paris Convention
FORMERLY kyoto protocol
A total of 192 countries have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol, including India, China, Japan, North Korea, and the entire European Union.
Despite 20 years of commitment from these countries - It has had its own share of successes and challenges.
The largest accomplishment it had was putting a spotlight to the critical state of our planet, and brought to light the urgency of reducing greenhouse gas emissions...

Global CO2 Emissions

Industrialized Kyoto Protocol countries actually reduced emissions by 22.6 percent.

...while some of its challenges included the absence of legal binding targets for developing nations.
The challenge of having an agreement signed by every country in our planet was massive. Politics and industrial businesses had a clear stake on what was agreed upon.
Granted, it took a great deal of time to fully implement the Kyoto Protocol, since each country had its own customs, laws, and demands.
Different Countries
Different Cultures
Different Laws
For instance, developing countries did not have deadlines in meeting their emission targets...
While developed countries like the United States signed but did not want to be legally bound by this treaty.
During the time, George Bush described the policy as ‘fatally flawed in fundamental ways’ and posed many domestic and economic concerns for the United States, as this may result in job losses and will hurt the country’s economy.
Despite these challenges, the good news is that more and more people are taking this matter with greater urgency than before.
The results and data provided by the Kyoto Protocol has given the world with much-needed insight on what needs to be done..
..and as of October 2015, multiple companies such as Google has backed climate change control measures.
We need your help to make it happen.
The fight goes on against climate change, and more action is needed if it is to be a complete success...
On December 2015, a Paris convention will be held to strengthen the plans set in motion by the Kyoto Protocol. This will serve as the next take-off point for securing a better tomorrow for us and future generations.
