Key actions on climate & energy that world leaders need to take at the Earth Summit in 2012





AnswerTips-Enabled


Carbon pollution from fossil fuel use reached the highest level yet in 2010, according to the International Energy Agency. So should we throw up our hands? No, this is a wake-up call that countries need to significantly speed up the pace of their action to reduce emissions. And when they come to the Earth Summit in Rio next June – just one short year from now – they have a chance to do just that. They better come prepared to implement new actions at home on climate and energy at the Earth Summit – held from June 4-6 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As NRDC’s President put it:
“When it comes to the protection of our planetary home, failure is not an option. We have no choice but to try to assure that the Earth Summit next year is truly historic and transformative and puts us on a road to a low carbon, greener and brighter future.”
