Big business, investors urge tough climate action.

by

I was hit with a reality check , when I realised there are a lot of things we take for granted.  We don’t tend to really worry about what the future generation are going to be referring too as common resources. Have a look at this article which I felt was left hanging for us to conclude. It mentioned the injection of £100 billion to poor nations to aid their infrastructure, this really does need clarity. I was of the opinion that the poorer nation where the victims, having to cope in a polluted common resource. Other nations have been subject to prolonged droughts, heatwaves floods to name a few. Evidence shows that the developed countries are the major contributors to greenhouse gases.

The notion of green jobs is a great idea, but this can be argued that momentarily its ideal for developed countries. This I  argue on the back of globalisation which has not been even in its distribution, therefore technology and innovation  is behind in other nation.

Mindy Lubber should have given a stronger argument, about with government will be fulfilling which task or agreed on tasks. Rather then using a sweeping statement. The responsibility of climate action lies on both private,  public business,society  and his not really about credibility of the government. We strongly have to get out of this mentality that the government owes us this and that.

    Of course yes. I strongly believe that we have to get out of this mentality that government owes us this and that. Don’t forget that it is the government, who exercise their power by laying down laws/rules that governs the people. The laws/rules governs the people, that either yields negative or positive results in the eyes of the commons values and benefits in a community or country. Every commoners in every nations are to enjoy the positive effects of globalization, and tackle the negative problems area, such as deforesttation/emissions from international shipping/aviation, and allowing trade competition together. Jeff Coelho, reported that scientists have said carbon emissions need to fall by 80 to 95 percent by 2050 to contain global warming within the limit of 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). “Time is running out to keep global warming under 2 degrees Celsius, and if they fail to act, governments risk permanent damage to their credibility,” the companies’ statement said, from this link http://www.mnn.com/money/sustainable-business. All these problems will definitly have a solution, without people/countries having the mentality of personal benefits alone. Pls live and let others live in a happy/safety and healthy environment, for the benefit of all people/countries in this world.
