Elena's Movie Review Madness

Reviews from my 11-year old mind!

A couple of studies in Nature have stated that from 2017, none of the major industrialized countries implemented the strategies they had planned and did not meet their emission reduction targets,[92] and even if they had, the sum of all accession commitments (from 2016) would not maintain the increase in global temperature “well below 2oC”. [93] [94] It is rare that there is consensus among almost all nations on a single subject. But with the Paris agreement, world leaders agreed that climate change was driven by human behaviour, that it was a threat to the environment and to humanity as a whole, and that global action was needed to stop it. In addition, a clear framework has been put in place for all countries to make commitments to reduce emissions and strengthen these measures over time. Here are some main reasons why the agreement is so important: the agreement stipulated that it would only enter into force (and therefore take full effect) if 55 countries that produce at least 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions (according to a list drawn up in 2015) have ratified, approved, approved or acceded to the agreement. [66] [67] On April 1, 2016, the United States and China, which together account for nearly 40% of global emissions, issued a joint statement confirming that the two countries would sign the Paris climate agreement. [69] 175 contracting parties (174 states and the European Union) signed the agreement on the first day of its signing. [59] [70] On the same day, more than 20 countries announced plans to join the accession as soon as possible in 2016. The ratification by the European Union has achieved a sufficient number of contracting parties to enter into force on 4 November 2016. The Paris Agreement is the first legally binding universal global agreement on climate change adopted at the Paris Climate Change Conference (COP21) in December 2015. President Trump is pulling us out of the Paris climate agreement. The EU and its member states are among the nearly 190 parties to the Paris Agreement. The EU formally ratified the agreement on 5 October 2016, allowing it to enter into force on 4 November 2016.
