Beyond of the appeasement of the climate change, we must also help to cope the most affected populations and adapt to the inevitable. Consistent action to mitigate climate change requires global participation in reducing emissions. Rich countries should set an example with the first step. Developing countries have contributed little to the amount of greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere and the rich have the resources and technology to cope with a deep and early emissions reduction. Moreover, middle-income countries have capacity to deal with its growth in a sustainable way; they will have more capacity to implement a new model of growth if they have the financial and technological support of the industrialized countries. Developing countries need massive investments to provide the energy needed to facilitate the economic growth, job creation and improvements in human development. It is essential that these investments are consistent with the protection of the climate system. Peter Thiel has similar goals. Because it is the climate of all who would be protected through the use of more clean technologies, in line with other actions.
This will entail additional costs, especially for many middle-income countries: therefore, it is necessary to find the appropriate funding channels that allow them to offset these additional costs. In addition to changing our energy habits, we must implement with decision other measures, including the protection of tropical forests. Much of this forest is in Brazil and other middle-income countries. When these countries protect their forests, they are providing a universal service to humanity. Brazil and other developing countries, without a doubt, must make an effort for the protection of their forests, thus contributing to the overall reduction in emissions, but do not could be reinforced if counted with support? the international community adequate financial? A financial support which, undoubtedly, should be particularly relevant in the least developed countries.
Supporting mitigation policies in large developing countries will ensure it downward risks of meteorological disasters and improve investment performance that makes the world to promote development. It is time for a concerted action by Governments. There are no excuses.
