What is left after COP23?

At COP23 in Bonn, delegates came up with some explications to cut down carbon emissions  and battle the climate disasters. With the old bureaucracies staying on, there were some highlights to  mention.

  • New members to join the agreement

Countries met in Bonn last week to negotiate better ways to correspondent with climate action. In reply US designation to withdraw from COP21, Syria and Nicaragua—the last two came up to join the consensus.

  • Same players on the road to commitment

The UK apparatus released details of a new funding commitment it has earmarked for projects to promote clean growth in major global cities and help developing countries meet their goals. To realize the project UK is going to team up with Germany for cooperating on governmental level.

Norway incorporated with consumer goods giant Unilever and other partners to try in public-private funding towards building resistance to climate change in vulnerable countries around the world.

  • Questions raised “Is it possible to live in a world without fossil fuels?”

Is it possible to fulfill all our global energy needs with renewables only? And which technologies work best to assist transition to a world without fossil fuels? Scientists responded at COP23. Lower system technologies is achievable than today based on available technology for “clean air industry”.

  • Recent science investigation highlighted.

“Energy transformation is not a question to technical feasibility or economic viability anymore. Dropping costs encourage solar energy. Wind power will formulate by 18 percent, hydropower 8 percent and bioenergy 2 percent of the total whole energy mix by 2050, according to the scientists’ estimates.

The study’s authors have indicated with a global population of almost 10 billion people by 2050 – which is the world’s hunger for power is supposed to double as aftermath.

  • Utopia or realistic scenario for future?

Prior to this, all research did undervalue the development of alternative energy. That’s why it’s going so much faster than estimated and while visualizing the next three decades, where humanity can reach the goal of 100 percent renewables in the energy consummation.

  • Urgent climate action is needed throughout all levels of governance and society reiterated.

For meeting the targets COP21 is taking the lead on promoting sustainability issues to help unlock strong action in cities across the developing world. It`s already beyond the skeptic to waste time on dilemma whether climate change is real. The recent fresh air problems happening in China could be a good message from yesterday to future . On the other hand, dependency on fuel industry seems staying on the agenda for the next decade after COP23.
