A Global Problem: Responsibility for Climate Change


a Global Problem: Responsibility for Climate Change

political controversy, and scientists respond in varied ways (Schneider 2009 ). This uncertainty is exacerbated in countries with significant emissions from the Concert of Everclear deforestation because the technical means to precisely measure such emissions do not yet exist. Nasas related Megacities Carbon Project is focused on the problem of accurately measuring and monitoring greenhouse-gas emissions from the worlds biggest cities. Earths climate has been relatively stable for the past 12,000 years and this stability has been crucial for the development of our modern civilization and life as we know. At home, progress has come to a virtual standstill after the failure of national cap-and-trade legislation. About three-quarters of fossil-fuel carbon dioxide emissions come from about 2 percent of the land surface the cities and the power plants that feed them. To date, very few national governments look at all like decarbonizing their economy, or redesigning energy systems to reverse growth in energy consumption (see the chapters by Diesendorf and Christoff/Eckersley).

a Global Problem: Responsibility for Climate Change

Currently, some PDF climate change financing comes by way of official development assistance (ODA). Under the protocol, countries could seek credits and financial support after forests were cut down but no support was available to prevent them from cutting forests down in the first place. Enforcement, meanwhile, is essentially nonexistent. We have encouraged authors to make linkages between approaches and to other chapters. The response on the part of the wealthy countries is that for most of this history, their governments had no awareness that what they were doing could change the climate, and so ought not to be held uniquely responsible for future mitigation. However, by and large these funds are the different levels of insani voluntary and have limited differences. Even before we get to monitoring and compliance, polluters with sufficient political power will demand exemptions and/or free permits for themselves.
