In an appreciable move, the new government of the United Kingdom has approved the Paris climate deal put forward in December last year. The agreement is made within the United Nation’s framework plans to get support from every country to take measures to reduce the rise of global temperatures to a figure below 2°C. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson signed the agreement and ratified the deal.
The news cropped up after Prime Minister, Theresa May solemnised to assent the Paris climate deal within this year. The agreement was brought in effect from the 4th November 2016 and 193 UNFCCC members have signed the deal. Out of these 193, around 111 ratified it and the UK is the latest one to join the list. It agrees to reduce the carbon emission and other pollutants in a way that the global temperatures do not increase by more than 2°C by 2020.
Nick Hurd, the Industry and Climate Change Minister expressed his views by saying that: “The UK is ratifying the historic Paris Agreement so that we can help to accelerate global action on climate change and deliver on our commitments to create a safer, more prosperous future for us all.
He added that, COP22 in Marrakesh is an important milestone which marks the shift from aspiration to implementation. We are going to use this positive momentum to grow the UK low carbon sector, which is already worth over £46 billion as we continue to provide secure, affordable and clean energy to our families and businesses.”
Even person of the U.S.A. are urging for the President Donald Trump to back the deal as he called it a hoax. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), to meet the goals of the Paris deal, all nations should invest an extra £19.8 trillion for energy efficiency.
