WHO: Hundreds of the Top World Leaders
WHY: To Stop Climate Change
GOAL DATE: 2020
IN less than 48 hours, hundreds of the world top leaders will meet in Copenhagen, Denmark for a meeting that we can only assume will go down in history. The conference hopes to get the leaders together and brainstorm ways to actively reduce each countries carbon emissions and the popular discussion of money.
The goal is to lower the emissions by 25-40% in each country by 2020, with the ultimate goal, being half of what the carbon emissions were in 1990. Developing countries are meant to come up with their own “Action Plan” in order to cut their emissions, while China, being the largest emitter, has already commited to reducing its emissions by 40-45% before 2020.
Some leaders claim that if they knew where global warming and carbon emissions were heading, then it would not be an issue. If it was estimated that the global temperature will only raise by 2 or 3 degrees, that there would be no issue to discuss, but this remains a mystery, so they are getting together to work on reducing the carbon emissions and help our planets global temperature.
Wilfrid Laurier Global Studies department, professor Dr. Donais states that this conference will be a fancy way for the leaders to be exposed in good political light, and hypothetical solutions will be tossed around but the act of actually getting something done might not be plausible for our worlds current state. Then again, Dr. Donais’ view is a pessimistic one. Lets hope that the old saying of two heads are better than one, truly works in this situation.
