Paris Agreement Not Enough To Save The World, UN Says

Considering that the Paris agreement could be fully implemented, UNEP's 2016 Emissions Gap Report has recently revealed it's cautionary suggestions claiming that the projected emissions for 2030 is still likely seen to increase in terms of the global temperature around 3 degrees Celsius this century.

According to the Huffington Post, the Paris Agreement was allegedly the most significant climate change convention to ever held in history. More than 190 countries pledged to cut down greenhouse gas emissions through a collaborative effort with the purpose of emitting global warming.

However, as the United Nations gears up for a deliberately planned conference in Morocco which aims to carry forward the Paris Agreement on climate change, they have also claimed that that the next three years would actually provide the "last chance" so as to limit global warming and bring the world to a safer side this century. Other authorities have already expressed their disbelief that the said commitment won't be enough to save the world.

In one of his press release statements reported by DW, head of UNEP Erik Solheim said that the world is actually on the right track with Paris Agreement being at hand and the recent Kigali Amendment that aims to reduce Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which has been found to replace the ozone-depleting Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). On the other hand, Solheim highly emphasizes that it's still not quite good enough if we are to stand a chance of avoiding serious climate change.

As of the present time, scientists are said to all agree to the fact that limiting climate change to under 2 degrees can possibly cause the reduction of the likelihood of severe weather conditions from happening. This includes sea-level rise, more extreme storm levels and longer droughts to a point of extinction.

The findings being presented is considered by many as an urgent call for action. Having said that, authorities believe that the conference that is to be held in Morocco next week is a good place to start with.
