GENI-us Letter 2015-10

Open Letter to COP21 Climate Change Experts & Negotiators:

Negotiating CO2 Targets vs. Linking Renewables Between Nations

Dear GENI Friend,

We are at a critical moment.

In one month, the world is convening once again to deal with climate change. The Conference Of the Parties 21st Meeting (COP21) seeks a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all nations, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2oC by 2050.

http://www.globalinstituteforyouth.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/COp21.jpgThe COP21 Main Issues:

"The stakes are high: the aim is to reach, for the first time, a universal, legally binding agreement that will enable us to combat climate change effectively and boost the transition towards resilient, low-carbon societies and economies.
...These efforts must take into account the needs and capacities of each country. The agreement will enter into force in 2020 and will need to be sustainable to enable long-term change."

Each country must publish its national contribution to the goal.

The high-voltage interconnection between nations tapping abundant renewable energy development is an engineering strategy that's doable everywhere - now.

Negotiating CO2 reductions country by country is hard. Building and connecting renewables is a positive solution that deserves your highest priority action.

fossil fuels vs. renewable energies

We have sent GENI's "Open Letter To Climate Change Experts And Negotiators." We make a strong case to stop new fossil fuel development and instead, build and connect renewable infrastructure. GENI's Fossil Fuels vs. Renewables Infographic explains the benefits to each nation. Tell your leaders, media and colleagues that this is urgent and important.

In Partnership for the Planet,
