Considering the fact that the United Nations is strongly advocating for nations around the world to cut down on gas emissions so as to arrest the aggression of global warming, India on Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, announced a national plan to address climate change.

This resolve puts India on the same pedestal with the US, China, Brazil, and the EU among other major countries who have pledged to cut down on carbon emissions; and to this extent, 90% of countries responsible for carbon pollution around the world have pledged to work towards an international goal of reducing atmospheric gases.

The US is already at the forefront to implement the Clean Power Plan, and this leadership position is encouraging others like India and China to join the bandwagon. Against this development, the Paris climate summit will head in the right direction because most countries are already committed to the goals of the international conference.

As can be expected, negotiators at the Paris conference will reach agreements that they will return home to encourage their individual countries to honor. Representatives will arrive in Paris with concrete plans that can be measured, monitored, and verified for accountability as long as reducing greenhouse gases is concerned.

To show its commitment to the directives, China has already cut down on carbon pollution and is taking an active role in wind and solar power installations – leading other world nations in this regard. The US is also producing auto cars that will cut carbon pollution by half by 2025, and component states are already drafting implementation plans that will enable them to reduce carbon emissions from power plants by 32% by 2030.

Although research proves that if all the pledges from individual nations are effected, the Earth’s temperature will come down to about 2.7 degrees Celsius; but then climate scientists say we must come down to 2 degrees Celsius in order to avert the implications of global warming. 

Business organizations are not being left out in the bid to reduce gas emissions. Just a few weeks back, companies such as Walmart, Starbucks, Johnson & Johnson among others pledged to source 100% of their power from renewable energy. Ultimately, it can be relied upon that the Paris Climate Talks is going to turn out right given the pointers from component nations and the steps they have taken to make carbon emissions as minimal as possible.
