COP25: "Green revolution" and a tax on emissions

Calls to move from promises to concrete, decisive measures, statements about the "green revolution" and the proposal to impose an international tax on carbon emissions in the Madrid beginning of the conference of the parties to the Framework agreement of the UN on climate change.

"In the coming decades we will have to choose your path. Or we capitulorum in polupismennom state and "point of no return" is passed, either we stand on the path of hope and long-term solutions. Most fossil fuels must stay prepared for them by the nature of the place," reads the statement of the Secretary-General antónio Guterres.

more to combat global warming in the first day of the Conference called many of the leaders of the EU countries. The new President of the European Council Charles Michel said that the EU wants to make Europe the continent. He is the author of the phrase about the need for "green revolution":

"We have made considerable progress in recent months. If you compare with what it was a year or two ago, now many leaders support more ambitious plans related to climate change. But we really should take into account that different countries have different starting positions".

strong statements I heard from delegates of the United States. Despite Washington's refusal of the Paris agreement, the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi promised that the United States achieved the objectives set UN framework Convention on climate change. In these circumstances, the experts who regularly participate in the UN conference on climate change with optimism speak about the prospects of building a coordinated environmental policy.

"I think people see the changes. They see it in their daily lives. It is not a question of the future of our children and grandchildren. I think actually there is a mobilization of people demanding real action. As the Chairman said of this year's conference, now is the time to act," says the coordinator of the initiative Because the Ocean Remi Parmentier.

how Far is it from these words to deeds? The question will probably remain open after the conference in Madrid. But, as noted by our correspondent Darren McCaffrey, the importance of this event is not determined by what decisions will be taken according to the results:

"for 20 thousand delegates to this climate Conference sets the tone for the upcoming important meeting in Scotland that will take place next year, and even increases the pressure on States that refuse to cut carbon emissions".

Conference COP25 was hastily organized in Madrid after due to financial problems and the mass protests it could not accept Brazil and Chile. The forum promised to be a part of the Swedish ecoactivity Greta Thunberg. She returned to Europe from the United States on a sailing catamaran and, as expected, on Tuesday will arrive in Lisbon.
