An Inconvenient Truth - Limits on the Greenhouse Gas Emissions

An Inconvenient Truth - Limits on the Greenhouse Gas Emissions

With the impact of global warming´╝îMany countries have proposed to limit greenhouse gas emissions to protect the environment. It should not be mandatory for all countries to have a limit on their greenhouse gas emissions regardless of they are a developing country, because limit carbon emissions in developing countries is not fair and if developed countries do not take into account the low-carbon development in developing countries may be lead to more emissions.

Global warming emissions by the developed countries is mainly caused by large quantities of greenhouse gases, the current per capita emissions in developing countries is still far lower than developed countries. However, developing countries in the construction period must be produced to have a lot of pollution, carbon emissions will be high, the West in the development period, too, but the West is a historical account does not count, as the Anglo-American history, 1,100 tons of carbon emissions per capita in China only 66 tons, not counting the historical account is not fair for developing countries. Developed countries can not impose requirements limit carbon emissions in developing countries.

In the class, we saw a movie named An Inconvenient Truth. It told us the same truth, Developed countries should take more responsibility for reducing emissions. They can not ignore the developing and developed countries are at different stages of development. Therefore, the developing and developed countries should not reduce carbon emissions in the same.

The earth is our common home. Every country must protect the environment on Earth. Each country should reduce carbon emissions. Mandatory for all countries to have a limit on their greenhouse gas emissions is good for human. We should proceed from the overall situation, to limit greenhouse gas emissions. In protecting the environment should not have national boundaries.

To sum up, it should not be mandatory for all countries to have a limit on their greenhouse gas emissions regardless of they are a developing country. Developing countries need to reduce emissions, but also need to development. Developed countries should take more responsibility for reducing emissions. This is our common ideas.
