Update on UN Conference on Climate Change

Date: 16/11/2017 in General

Update on UN Conference on global warming - let us help save our planet.

COP23 Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)At COP23, now running in Bonn, governments are meeting to advance the implementation of the Paris Agreement. The focus is on the development of guidelines on how the Paris Agreement's provisions will be implemented across a wide range of issues including transparency, adaptation, emission reductions, provision of finance, capacity-building and technology.

The aim is make progress in all these areas so that the guidelines can be completed by COP24 in Poland in 2018.

We at CMSE can contribute to the elements in bold - transparency, adaptation, emission reductions and capacity-building. This is the most pressing issue facing our species right now - are we capable of stepping up to the mark?

We are constantly being warned that if we do not change our ways that we may permanently alter our environment. However, ecological issues and the human misuse of our natural environment and the resulting long-term consequences are not unique to our times. 

Nearly 2,500 years ago, Plato lamented over the land degradation that stripped the once lush hills of Greece due to over-grazing by sheep.

Everything we require for our species survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. However, as Albert Einstein declared, "We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them." Let's heed these cautionary words and change our mind-set first and right action will follow.

The short term business opportunities here are immense - however the opportunity for us to make a contribution to humanity are so much more profound.
