“We are the wrong path on climate change,” says Roberto Gomes holder of Global Solidarity International, a portal that leads the Planetary Government initiative funded Eco 2% of global GDP under Global Digital system of direct democracy, ending in immediately with the triple scourge of hunger, extreme poverty and global warming.
He explained that “the COP 21 is an attempt to add solutions multilaterally, when what is needed is to centralize decisions in the form of a world government with incumbencies in environmental issues to enact laws on all nations and that they are obliged to comply. Only in this way will be an effective global coordination can be guaranteed and reduce emissions toward the goal of net zero, and not for 2100 but for 2050 “.
He warned that “most scientists and politicians are focused not exceed the threshold of 2 ° C, when the team of Dr. James Hansen in his latest paper, shows us clearly that even a rise of 1 ° C over the temperature global average, that the oceans ascend up to 8 meters. ”
The study authors reach this conclusion based on what happened on Earth during the Eemian period, just before the last glacial period. At that time the air temperature was a degree warmer than now. They have noted that the sea level was higher than current models would predict for those conditions.
They found a feedback loop that may explain the discrepancy. A small increase in the heating produces a small polar ice melting, but this causes changes in ocean currents which tend to melt more ice: the more ice melts faster other begins to melt due to the heat remains trapped in the water underneath.
Fresh water is less dense than salt and the first product of the fusion of the ice, as this study will accumulate around Greenland and Antarctica. This layer will act like a blanket around Antarctica, floating above the rest of the salt water and preventing the accumulated heat is radiated into the atmosphere. The result is a rapid melting of the ice.
Above this layer of water disrupt the ocean currents that carry heat from the tropics to the poles, so the tropics heat up even faster, while at high latitudes the water surface would cool. This temperature difference Superstorms generate and fury of a size never seen by modern humans. However, no evidence, found in the Bahamas, other storms that occurred 120,000 years ago. Waste left by the waves of storms were deposited at 40 meters above the current sea level, including thousands of tons of rocks.
According to the study authors, an increase of 2 degrees will lead to a dangerous situation in the coastal areas and islands formed by countries will face disastrous consequences for the rise in at least eight meters in sea level and the scourge of Superstorms. This means, for example, the disappearance of entire countries map made up of small islands in the Pacific.
You can imagine that this phenomenon will have serious consequences in terms of conflict and mass migration flows due to the economic collapse that will on certain countries. As stated in the article, this “could make the world ungovernable, threatening the fabric of civilization.”
Faced with this new reality expectations COP 21 are negative. It is talking about reducing emissions from 2020 to 2030, eventually replace the energy mix by 2100. By that time we will have lost all the coastal cities by the global flood, have 600 million environmental refugees, 30-50% less crops by drought, all the rivers that feed mountain glaciers and dry most of the known ecosystem in crisis, with species loss also 50%.
Gomes eventually ruled that “the global warming problem is solved with money alone. Not reach 100 billion dollars per year. 2 billion per year are needed. That is 2% of world GDP. If power factors are not willing to put the money we head towards the safe environmental catastrophe. ”
WHY THE 2% of global GDP?
Our actions in the coming decades inmediatamentente may involve the risk of disruption of economic and social activity for the rest of this century and the next, on a similar scale to that of the great wars and the Great Depression. This is the conclusion of the report by economist Sir Nicholas Stern for the UK government and was published on October 30, 2006.
Its main conclusions state that an investment equivalent to 1% of global GDP is required to mitigate the effects of climate change and that failure to do this investment the world would be exposed to a recession that could reach 20% of global GDP. The report also suggests the imposition of environmental taxes to minimize the socio-economic imbalances.
The United Nations Program for Environment (UNEP) proposed to allocate 2% of global annual GDP applied: 0.5% to sectors of natural capital (forests, agriculture, freshwater fishing); 1% by improving energy efficiency and using renewable energy (mainly applied to the construction, industry and transport), and the remaining percentage waste and public transport.
Armed with this budget may be planted 30 billion new trees per year and proceeding to then bury the logs, trapping the CO2 and returning the greenhouse gas underground and proceeding to an intelligent control of global climate, by regulating dioxide free carbon in the atmosphere. By greening the world’s forests. The task is done by the multinational AEON of Japan with expertise in forest restoration, not to repeat the mistakes made with green credits. (We cut per year at 15 billion trees).
