Delegates from 195 countries have finalized a historic agreement that will affect all of us, including future generations.
The Paris agreement affirmed the commitment made in Copenhagen in 2009 to limit the rise in Earth temperature to no more than 2 degrees Celsius.
The industrial age.
In fact, the meeting agreed to continue efforts to limit the temperature rise to 1. 5 degrees C.
This new goal is indeed ambitious and requires a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a rapid transition to low levels. carbon economy. Non-
Government organizations from all over the world, including many of the religious groups, have strongly advocated agreement.
I am a member of the Church of Christian reform in North America and it has launched a campaign-the Climate Witness project to add voice and effort to this important work.
The project involved 35 rallies in Canada and the United States.
One delegation attended the meeting of the parties 21 and sent daily reports to participants to keep up with USto-
Date of progress.
As a Christian, I believe that we are all called as stewards of creation.
We can use the resources on Earth, but we will not destroy the environment or cause harm to our neighbors.
Over the past 30 years or so, we have been keenly aware of the impact of the increase in global greenhouse gas levels on the Earth\'s climate.
This makes almost all countries in the world feel the effects of higher than normal temperatures.
Many poor people, low
Low-lying countries experienced floods caused by rising water levels and strong storms.
Even in the Hamilton area, we have experienced several times recently \"100-year\" storms.
It is encouraging to see Prime Minister Trudeau and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna play a leading role in the discussion and commit Canada to do our part in greenhouse gas emission reduction.
As we move towards low growth, federal and provincial support is criticalcarbon economy.
Many technical solutions are available-
Electric vehicles, solar photovoltaic and hot water systems, wind turbines, efficient LED lighting, geothermal heating and refrigeration, public transport.
Now, we need to make changes to the national building code to be low
Residential, district heating, solar panels, new energy-
Efficient windows and lighting.
With the transition from fossil fuels to renewable fuels, many new jobs will emerge.
While the issue of climate change requires political and technical solutions, it is primarily a moral issue.
Religious groups can play a unique role here.
Science and engineering can help us understand and develop solutions, but they can\'t provide an ethical framework to shift social priorities from a growth and waste economy to a sustainable one, from selfishness to caring for our neighbors.
In other words, religious groups must work with politicians, scientists, engineers and industrialists to solve the huge problem of climate change.
No one can do it by themselves.
In addition to reducing greenhouse gases, the Paris agreement has also established a green climate fund to provide a mechanism through which rich countries can contribute to poor countries to help them adapt to low levels
The carbon economy helps them prevent future impacts and repair the damage caused by climate change.
The fund aims to raise $100 billion by 2020 and $100 billion annually thereafter.
It exists in the self of every developed country.
Enable developing countries to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels and adapt to and respond to changing climate.
Such action may reduce the number of environmental refugees in the coming years.
We can all play a role in the implementation of the Paris agreement.
We can start by reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.
We can encourage our governments at all levels to go down. carbon economy.
We can encourage our religious leaders to speak out about the injustice of the world\'s environment.
The path we are currently on is not the one that provides a healthy future for future generations;
