(Mirror Daily, United States) – The representatives and environment ministers from the Group of Seven nations (G-7) found the answer to improve and preserve the climate situation concerning everyone.
After two days of discussions in Toyama, all the participants decided to adopt the Paris climate accord and presented their ideas and plans to win against the climate change effect before the 2020 deadline.
According to the Environment Minister, Tamayo Marukawa, the G-7 will immediately take action against climate change regarding the Paris Agreement. This gathering was possible after in December, 200 nations complied at the U.N. conference that every country should bring its contribution in restricting the greenhouse gas emission.
Plus, over 170 countries signed the agreement together with the G-7 promise to take measures and be efficient in curbing heat-trapping gas emissions. The agreement was signed by all G-7 members, such as the United States, Italy, Japan, Germany, France, Canada, Britain, the European Union, and China. More precisely, 55 nations accounting for 55 percent of global emissions will be part of this agreement.
Moreover, the G-7 ministers not only promised, but vowed to make every possible effort to come up with long-term strategies to curb emissions and to hand this plan to the United Nations. The target of every country is to lower the temperature by 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels to prevent severe consequences of climate change.
In addition to that, they must succeed until 2020 and communicate the results to the United Nations about the strategies they used concerning the long-term low greenhouse gas emission.
According to the G-7 members, the residents of every city play the most important role in this fight against climate change. Why? Because the population continues to grow, meaning that citizens must become more responsible, have a more ecological perspective and act in a way that will protect the environment.
To increase the efficiency of this task, governments are the ones that should provide everyone with the adequate information regarding this issue. This information must be conveyed into methods that will pay off.
The other important issue is food waste. The United Nations statistics showed that one-third of the entire amount of food produced, more precisely 1.3 billion tons worth $1 trillion, go straight in the bins of consumers.
The next part of the plan against climate change will be another G-7 summit on May 26 and 27 in Mie Prefecture.
