At the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development 178 countries voted to adopt Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is non-binding action plan that sets climate sustainability and poverty. guidelines for national, state and local governments. Proponents argue that the agenda’s guidelines will encourage federal and local governments to protect the environment and combat poverty. Opponents argue that global organizations should not make rules for local governments and these rules are unnecessary because they are impossible to enforce.
Yes, we should follow the goals of the Paris Agreement and take the necessary steps, however we must also look at practical solutions that work for our communities/economy, and work to be the one of the global leaders in environmentalism.
We should work towards following the environmental guidelines set by the United Nations, but we need to focus on what respective communities need so we don't damage the stability of said communities. We should also increase sanction on countries that are top contributors of global pollution.
increase sanctions on countries that are the top contributors NOT based on population, emission is emission, if China were to stop contributing, emissions are reduced by 30%. Using population is a diversion to the real problem which is emission.
