It looks like the United States of America and the People’s Republic of China are going to spearhead some transformation. This will be in reference to climate change in case of the G20 summit which is due to take place soon.
China and the US are bound to give the Paris climate change scenario a boost towards betterment as the G20 summit looms on the horizon.
The world’s biggest economies will gather together during the course of this summit. It will take place over the upcoming weekend. The curbing of fossil fuel subsidies will be discussed at the event.
China has been at the forefront of the climate change debate. It has taken over the reigns of the bandwagon that wants an end to pollution and global warming. We want to leave a better world for our children rather than making them face a dystopian future.
According to Reuters, China will be hosting the G20 summit this time around. It plans to get serious alongside the United States regarding climate change. Talks regarding climate and energy will be the focus of the meeting.
The summit will last from September 4th to 5th. It will be the last in a series of salubrious steps taken by President Barack Obama. The solution to the climate change conundrum will remain as a chief legacy of President Obama.
Let it be known beforehand though that the US and China are the two major contributors to the climate change that is going on in the world today.
Therefore it is from within these two countries that the wave of change is arising to leave the environment more pristine instead of polluted when we will not be here and our progeny rules the earth.
The steps taken so far are just not enough, according to climate change scientists. A lot more needs to be done in order to curb fossil fuel emissions. This of course is not an easy job at all.
It requires a radical restructuring of our technology and humanity’s lazy habits to boot. China alone uses up half the world’s coal which creates smog in the air above the cities.
Seen from a realistic point of view, the way ahead is a long road that must be covered on a piecemeal basis. The Paris Agreement was just a beginning. We still have a long way to go.
Only if such giant contributors to global pollution, as China and the US, take the first steps towards amelioration, will the rest of the smaller nations follow suit. That is exactly what lies on the agenda at the G20 summit which will be held soon.
