Emerging economies against climate change

  1. 1. www.florenciabunge.com Emerging economies against climate change By: Florencia Bunge The last weekend I read several newspaper articles in which statements Michel Jarraud, secretary general of the WMO, who says that the temperature of the atmosphere continues to increase and, consequently, the sea level is also included. This led me to a couple of thoughts: world leaders are doing something to mitigate the effects of climate change, and just how prepared are we to deal with these issues. In response to my questions I gave myself the task of investigating more detail and I found the report of the Global Legislators Organization (GLOBE International), published last month, indicating that emerging leaders are those who keep head on climate change legislation . According to the report of GLOBE, countries like China, Mexico, Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Kenya, Micronesia, Mozambique, Nigeria and Switzerland lead the momentum of significant legislation related to climate and energy. While other nations like Venezuela, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Canada have no outstanding legislation. All countries studied in the report, a total of 66, covers the 88% of emissions of greenhouse gases emitted. Stresses, however, that of these only 62 are developing a legislation to counter the effects of climate change by human activity. On March 23 was the World Meteorological Day, we must remember the need to do an international consensus that emerging economies not only promote effective legislation to counter the effects of climate change. As global citizens, we need to do everything to contribute our little grain of sand to this problem. This article has been based on Florencia Bunge personal opinion.
