    Fact Check On The Paris Agreement

    Enough with the fairy tales about the Paris agreement. It's time for facts; A select and uninformed few have been railing against the Paris objectives. Let’s debunk some of their tallest tales

    Erwin Jackson, 15 August 2018 (UK Guardian)

    “…[The Paris climate change agreement, signed in 2015, is] the first truly universal agreement among nations to tackle climate change…[In response to it] and the falling cost of zero emissions technology, more and more countries, businesses and investors are implementing policies to drive the transition to cheap and clean renewable energy. In 2017 alone, around 70% of new power generation installed globally was renewable energy, with more solar PV capacity being added in 2017 than that of coal, gas and nuclear combined…

    …[The agreement’s objectives are] to keep global warming “well below” 2°C above pre-industrial levels…[and] to “pursue efforts” to keep warming to 1.5°C. This means global emissions must fall to zero by around 2050…[The agreement requires action from all countries that] strengthen through time…[It] also involves a system of transparency and accountability…Fact: Countries are imposing penalties on their major emissions sources to meet Paris targets…Fact: Paris does apply to all countries and action is occurring…Fact: More, not less, needs to be done to meet Paris objectives…” click here for more
