at the Beira Convention and Exhibition Center, the site of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, as of December 5, more than 34000 representatives from government delegations and international organizations, on the other hand, were able to send the energy generated by motor feedback back to the power grid, non-governmental organizations, media and other institutions, including more than 5000 media applicants
Uncle Zhang, who lives in Chaoyang District, Beijing, told that the community held the activity of "one yuan for energy-saving lamps" not long ago. Thanks to government subsidies, one yuan can buy an energy-saving lamp! Uncle Zhang rushed to buy five on the first day of the event
People's Beijing, December 7 - the United Nations Climate Change Conference, which kicked off today in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is called by many as "the last chance for mankind to save the earth". At the time of the conference, people of all countries expressed their climate concerns in different ways, and the core focus was still on the issue of survival and development
worry about survival
the voice is rising
"for Bangkok and other surrounding governments and plastic films, climate change has become a survival issue."
"for Bangkok and other surrounding governments, climate change is not only an environmental issue, but has become a survival issue," Dr. suta, lecturer of Asia Institute of technology, made efforts to emphasize the importance of coping with climate change
Bangkok faces the Gulf of Thailand, with an average altitude of only 0.4 meters. With the global warming caused by the increase of greenhouse gases, the sea level in the Gulf of Thailand is rising at a rate of 3 mm per year. Experts estimate that if the sea level rises by 1 meter, 70% of Bangkok will become a water city. In a small village near the sea called shameijin in Bangkok, villagers were forced to move again and again to avoid the rising sea water, and the population of the village has decreased by 30% in the past 20 years. Thai scholars recently strongly called on the Copenhagen conference to reach a feasible plan to save the threatened coastal areas at a seminar
Brazilians are keen to participate in the Copenhagen conference. It is reported that there were more than 700 participants in the meeting, of which 120 were representatives of the government and parliament, and the remaining 500 were representatives of civil society groups who voluntarily participated at their own expense. Brazil's novais said that although people are still worried about the outcome of the United Nations climate conference in Copenhagen, there are still many reasons to expect world leaders to achieve positive and concrete results at the critical moment of the Copenhagen conferenceOn the 5th, London, England held what was called the largest "climate parade" in history. Thousands of people set out from Grosvenor Square near the U.S. Embassy in Britain at noon that day, headed for the seat of the British government, and finally gathered in Westminster house, the British Parliament in a "crowd". Sinha, the person in charge of organizing the March, said that we are calling on Prime Minister Brown to promote the success of the Copenhagen conference, so that developed countries can reduce emissions by at least 40% in the next 10 years, and provide funds to help developing countries reduce emissions
the foundation of all things
development comes first
"people are concerned about the protection of the Amazon tropical rainforest, but they should pay more attention to the survival and employment of residents in this area."
in India, coal-fired power generation accounts for 55% of the total power generation, and its carbon emissions also account for about 60% of the total emissions. However, the phenomenon of power shortage in Indian cities is still prominent, and there is a large power gap in major cities such as New Delhi. In order to reduce emissions while ensuring power supply, the Indian government has long decided to vigorously promote the use of clean energy such as solar energy and biofuels
however, Anil Gago, head of a non-governmental organization that has been engaged in the promotion of new energy for many years, told that although the government vigorously promoted it, the effect was not great, because "financial support is the main problem, and at the same time, the progress of technology transfer promised by developed countries to developing countries was not great". Gago expressed the hope that there would be a clear statement on this issue at the Copenhagen conference
Brazil has the largest tropical rainforest in the world, and the greenhouse gases emitted by the deforestation and burning of the Amazon tropical rainforest account for 70% of the country's total emissions. In November, the Brazilian government announced a voluntary target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 36.1% to 38.9% in 2020, of which the most important measure is to reduce the deforestation area of the Amazon by 80% every year. These measures have been widely supported by the public, but they also cause some concerns
Luis, director of the Amazon National Institute, said, "there are 25million Brazilians living in the Amazon region. People are concerned about protecting the Amazon tropical rainforest, but they should pay more attention to the survival and employment of residents in this region." Cartia, President of the Brazilian Federation of agriculture, believes that Brazil needs to pay a huge price of R $400billion (1 R $0.584) to reduce deforestation and restore forest land. Marcos Sintra, director of the International Department of the Brazilian Institute of Applied Economics, said: "we developing countries have actively responded to global warming and put forward voluntary emission reduction targets. Now it is our turn to see whether developed countries can fulfill their commitments and provide financial and technical assistance to developing countries. This is the issue we are most concerned about the outcome of the climate conference."
4. In fact, the attitude of people in developed countries on global climate change is also closely related to their actual interests. An American interviewee named woolcott said that she supported the United States to take action on emission reduction, but did not agree to raise energy prices for this purpose, and believed that under the current economic situation, the American public would not support the rise of energy prices. Experts believe that after entering the substantive stage of solving the problem of climate change, people in developed countries began to carefully consider the cost they need to pay. When the economy is booming, people are more enthusiastic about climate change. After the international financial crisis, the idea of keeping their jobs and developing the economy has the upper hand
bit by bit
"we must act as soon as possible, even at the expense of our personal interests, we should also consider the overall situation of environmental protection."
in recent years, extreme weather such as high temperature, cold, prolonged drought, sandstorms, rainstorms, hurricanes and so on have frequently visited Australia. A report from the Australian Academy of science and engineering pointed out that climate change is an obvious fact, which will lead to the destruction of Australia's ecological environment, the reduction of species, the rise of sea level, and the threat to normal social and economic activities and public health
as one of the countries with the highest per capita greenhouse gas emissions in the world, Australian people are increasingly participating in environmental protection actions to combat climate change. In order to cope with climate change, the Australian climate change station advises people to do the following things every day: replace bulbs with energy-saving bulbs; Unplug unused appliances; Plant a tree in the backyard; Dry clothes instead of drying them; Energy saving materials are used in housing construction; Install water-saving devices, etc
Ms. Ramachandran, the instructor of the "ecological club" of St. Columba school in New Delhi, the capital of India, said, "we must act as soon as possible, even at the expense of our personal interests, we should also consider the overall situation of environmental protection." She believes that we should start with children and cultivate their awareness of loving the environment and consciously protecting the environment. Recently, it was found that Mr. Datta, the business landlord, replaced his bulbs with LED energy-saving lamps that are more environmentally friendly than energy-saving bulbs. "This is also our contribution to environmental protection," Mr. Datta told
Wang Gengchen, a researcher at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told this newspaper that the international mainstream public opinion and the scientific community respect the global climate assessment report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on climate change and confirm that human activities are the main cause of the warming of the global climate system in the past 50 years. Wang Gengchen said that climate change negotiations go far beyond the scope of climate change science. There is a big gap between developed and developing countries in the stage of economic development, people's living standards, energy structure, capital and technological strength. The right to development of developing countries should not be forgotten. Developed countries should promise and provide more financial and technical assistance to developing countries to help them achieve emission reduction
