Magazine Description

In this issue

The just-concluded UN climate summit in Lima finally made a face saving deal on emission cut despite initial debates and disagreements among the participating nations. Following two-week negotiations by over 196 countries, they also agreed on ground rules on how all countries can submit contributions to the new agreement during the first quarter of next year. Though the developed countries demonstrated more sincerity than at Warsaw, they were not agreeing to any legally binding agreements in 2015. It appeared from the discussions that even if the zero emission could be achieved by 2050, the global target to limit temperature below 2 degree Celsius by 2100 might not be achieved. Renewable Energy lobbies stressed upon creating 100% reliance on green energy by 2050. They claimed it is possible to achieve, but one of the precondition would be to strengthen the grid and major innovations for developing storage capacity. Through the summit a momentum has been growing for global climate action, with the US, China, and EU putting their emissions targets early. Now other countries need to step up their efforts in this regard.
