• Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of Earths near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation.• According to the 2007 Fourth Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the 20th century
Climate change is a long-term change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years It may be qualified as anthropogenic climate change, more generally known as global warming or anthropogenic global warming (AGW) Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole Earth.

ACTIONS IN PAST... Bali Action Plan The Conference of Parties (CoP) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Kyoto Protocol UNFCC
COPENHAGEN CLIMATE SUMMIT Representatives of 193 countries meet in international conference in Copenhagen. To try and hammer out an agreement that will save the planet from the fallouts of global warming and climate change
To worrie or not...
Fixing the Peak year• Fixing peak year would impact the economic progress of the developing countries as they would not be able to emit a higher level of carbon after that year• The accord explicitly recognizes that the time frame for peaking year will be longer in developing countries• There is no mention of specific peaking year
Does every one agreed??? In principle, yes, but there are sharp differences over the details Rich countries, for example ,want big , emerging economies like India and china to take some sort of targeted reductions in their rapidly growing emissions. Developing countries are demanding more ambitious emission cuts from the rich countries.
India and climate change
In the end...• The final agreement failed to meet UN ambitions, with participating nations agreeing only to “take note” of the deal eventually brokered by China, US, Brazil, India and South Africa.• President Obama, whose representatives called the deal a “meaningful agreement”, has also recognised that the progress made was “not enough.”
have to think again...
