TED recently published a TED conference by Christiana Figueres on the Paris Climate Agreement and her experience of transforming the common mentality into unwavering optimism. The Conference of the Parties (COP) is an international political response to climate change that began in 1992. COP21, also known as the Paris Climate Change Conference, brought the parties together to achieve a universal climate goal: to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. “This is by far the largest number of countries that have ever signed an international agreement in a single day,” said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. Among the 175 signatories were 55 heads of state, including French President Francois Hollande and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Heads of state and government must now return to the governments of their home countries to ratify and approve the agreement, which could take months or years. The agreement will enter into force as soon as 55 countries, representing at least 55% of global emissions, are formally agreed. So if they think that everything is the result of a secret commission issuing a directive, is it not surprising that they think they can move the sky and the earth if they only get the right people? sit down and send decrees. TRANSPARENCY: There is no penalty if countries miss their emissions targets. Instead, the agreement relies on transparency rules to motivate countries to honour their commitments.
