PM Shehbaz Sharif urges Kuwait to participate in the Climate Moot
Kuwait will have to take important measures if it wants to stay competitive in the global marketplace, she said. The country needs to adopt a more responsible and resolute position on climate change, especially in light of the recent spike in unprecedented rainfalls across the Middle East and North Africa, she added. The country should not allow itself to become a beneficiary of carbon emissions while other countries continue to under-perform on its commitments under Paris Climate Agreement. She urged Kuwaiti government officials and public companies to take urgent action on climate change at home and abroad so as to safeguard the country’s interests. Saying that it is not enough for Kuwaiti government departments and companies to just stand by and watch as their citizens emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, PM Shehbaz Sharif urged them to take decisive steps towards cutting carbon emissions while also increasing transparency in the process. “The government should adopt a stricter stance on carbon emissions and make it easier for companies to reduce them; this will help both parties benefit from the lowest emission scenario while still being fair about how much they are allowed to emit,” he said at a press conference here last week.
What is the current situation of climate change in Kuwait?
In order to prepare for the climate change scenario that is playing out in the near future, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has issued a global climate change report. The foremost author of the report is former United States under-secretary of State for Environmental Protection Michael Mann, who has been conducting research on climate change at the university level for the past 15 years. The report highlights the fact that global mean temperature has risen 1.9 degrees Celsius since the onset of the twenty-first century, and that this increase is most likely connected with a increase in the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. Mann feels that the best way to reduce this increase is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions completely. According to him, lowering carbon emissions in the atmosphere will result in an immediate reduction in global mean temperature, accompanied by a rapid decline in precipitation and a corresponding drop in the amount of tropical cyclones. The report also states that current levels of carbon emissions from human activities are far below the levels needed to prevent dangerous climate change.
The impacts of climate change on the environment
As has been mentioned above, climate change is causing alarming changes in the world’s environment. The report of the WMO states that the amount of terrestrial carbon in the atmosphere has more than trebled in the last 50 years, from about 0.1 percent to about 2 percent. This increase in carbon has been mainly caused by the growth of tropical forests, with a higher concentration of carbon in tropical forests than in temperate forests. The amount of carbon in the air has also increased drastically, from about 0.1 percent to about 2 percent. The most dramatic change that has taken place in the environment is the increase in the amount of nitrogen in the air.
PM Shehbaz Sharif urges government to adopt a stricter stance on carbon emissions
Although the global climate change report of the WMO has lowered the carbon emissions that are necessary to prevent dangerous climate change, it has not done so the opposite. Instead, it has recommended a more aggressive goal of reducing emissions below 2 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP) by 2040. The main reason for this is that the country needs to maintain its current competitiveness in the international market. PM Shehbaz Sharif stressed that these emissions should be reduced not only in terms of total carbon emissions, but also in terms of the amount of carbon that is being released into the atmosphere and the rate at which this is being released. He also said that the current level of carbon emissions from agriculture, home building and other activities is simply not sufficient to reduce them further.
Kuwait to take urgent measures if it wants to stay competitive in global marketplace
The Kuwaiti government should do everything in its power to reduce the amount of carbon emissions that are currently taking place, PM Shehbaz Sharif said. The government should also ensure that it has enough energy reserves to power the increasing demand for energy and is taking urgent steps to reduce carbon emissions that are already taking place. The government should also take urgent steps to get ahead of the Paris Climate Change event and to put in place an effective carbon capture and storage project to capture and store as much carbon as possible. His advice is that the government should adopt a more aggressive goal of reducing carbon emissions as close to 2 percent of GDP as possible. The government should also work to clean up its air and water pollution so as to reduce the impact of climate change on human health and the environment, and should consider establishing a clean energy program to promote clean energy technology.
What action can be taken now?
The best way to start reducing carbon emissions is to take the necessary steps. The first step is to increase transparency in the process of reducing carbon emissions. The Kuwait Environmental Infrastructure and Management (Kexi) program, which includes monitoring and accounting for carbon emissions, is a good example of this. The Kexi program allows companies and individuals to report their carbon emissions and the amount of carbon released, as well as the rate at which emissions are being released, to the government. The government can then take strong action to reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment. However, the government also needs to improve the efficiency with which carbon is being released and captured, so that it can be released at a lower amount than it is capturing now.
As one can see from the above mentioned facts and figures, climate change is a serious and immediate threat to world and country health, security, and agriculture. It has been argued that carbon emissions can play a major role in the change, and that there are three main stages of carbon emissions: production, distribution, and transmission. The first is important within the economy, the second is important within the environment, and the third is significant enough to offset the climate change it causes. As a result of the above-mentioned facts and figures, it is clear that carbon emissions play an important role in the climate change scenario that is playing out in the next few decades. In order to contain carbon emissions and protect the environment, it is vital that the government of the country takes strong action to reduce carbon emissions. The first and foremost thing that the government must do is incentivize the use of low-carbon technologies. By incentivizing the use of low-carbon technologies, the government can easily reduce carbon emissions and improve the efficiency with which carbon is being released and captured. Another important thing that the government must do is to encourage development of low-carbon technologies. The first thing that the government needs to encourage is the development of low-carbon technologies for electricity and power plants. The second thing that the government needs to encourage is the development of low-carbon technologies for energy transmission and distribution. The final thing that the government needs to encourage is the development of low-carbon technologies for transportation.
