UN says Paris Agreement on climate change must aim for long-term environmental stability

As global leaders prepare to sign the Paris Agreement on climate change tomorrow at United Nations Headquarters in New York, the head of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction today called on signatories to go beyond their existing commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions if the world is to avoid catastrophic future weather events.

“I welcome the fact that over 160 countries have declared they are signing up to the Paris Agreement but we are in real danger of being overtaken by the rapid pace of global warming if signatories do not significantly scale up the level of their ambition to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Robert Glasser, the UN Special Representative for Disaster Risk Reduction

“Most people who looked at the global situation say that if we don’t succeed in maintaining the world under a 2 degrees Celsius rise, then it’s going to be incredibly difficult to realize the Sustainable Development Goals,” he warned. “And so implementing the Paris agreement is important for promoting prosperity, improving people’s wellbeing, and protecting the environment.”

.... And you?......

What do you think about all this?
Do you recycle, save paper, water, food?
Do you use the public transport or ride a bike?

And about the Paris Agreement what do you think ?
They will decide something 'relevant'?
They will establish quotas, measures, fines...?

Or it is going to be like other past enviroment agreements (kioto, Brasil..) a wastepaper?
