Emissions have been falling gradually in recent years in most of the developed countries, in part because of economic weakness but also because of strengthening climate policies. Emissions in the 28-nation European Union fell 1.8 percent in 2013, which is already a great advantage, including Germany and Poland among those, both developed and industrial nations. Emissions decreased also in Britain, Italy, Spain and other countries too.

The increase of these and other gases from human activity has caused the planet to warm by about 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit since the pre-industrial era, which is causing land ice to melt all over the world. The oceans are rising at what appears to be an accelerating pace, and heat waves and torrential rains are intensifying. There are multiple studies that assume lands will be completely under water in a few years. And yes, you should worry about it even if you don’t live by the coast.

YES, this is a world fight, and we have been doing  a good job in protecting the earth, in multiple ways. But there is a lot more that needs to be done. Projects, agreements and treads such as the Kyoto Protocol, that commits state parties to reduce greenhouse gas emissions signed by some countries in 1997 in Japan, and also, the Rio+20, that was the third international conference on sustainable development aimed at reconciling the economic and environmental goals of the global community, in Brazil, 2012.
