Online social networking service Twitter introduces new emojis activated by hashtags. The new emojis are in conjunction with the Paris Climate Change Summit.
As society realizes the influence of the talks in climate change that will be held in France, social network site Twitter attaches new emojis that embed the Eiffel Tower attached to COP21's official logo activated by hashtags #ClimateChange, #ActionDay, #gocop21, and #cop21.
The two-week climate change summit will be attended by more than 150 leaders all over the world, including President Francois Hollande of France, United States President Barack Obama and President Xi Jinping of China. The United Nations claims that there are now over 400,000 tweets regarding the climate change summit. Among them are tweets that come from Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, who happens to have 16.3 million followers on Twitter and is considered one of the most influential online celebrities on the social network's site who is attending the Climate Change Summit in Paris.
The goals of the summit include an agreement between countries that limits global warming to 35.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, financial contracts regarding fund distribution to infrastructures from first-world countries to developing nations are in discussions.
The pressure on the summit at this time around is the struggles to make available feasible treaties in the past with regards to climate change. Activists and scientists altogether have warned the diplomats that are attending the said summit that this may be the last opportunity to limit the targets for global warming to above pre-industrial points. In this regard, this will ensure that Earth is not prone to life-threatening weather situations that can lead to food scarcity in days to come.
The Climate Change Summit takes place in the sleuth of the recent Paris terror attacks. President Hollande of France pointed out in his opening speech the links between the upsurges in global terrorism and climate change. U.S. President Obama, on the other hand, echoed France's sentiments in his speech, according to CNN.
