AEROSPACE: Europe is stepping up efforts to tackle the emission of carbon dioxide, and it is making good progress on the continent’s first-ever international conference on emissions.
At a conference in Paris, officials from Europe’s 28 member states, plus the U.S., are meeting to discuss the issue.
In addition to the COP21 climate summit, the conference will also include a discussion of how to get countries on track to cut their emissions to 20 percent below 2005 levels by 2050.
Europe will also make significant pledges in its own 2030 targets, which are aimed at cutting emissions in line with the Kyoto Protocol.
At least 15 countries are at COP21.
At this time last year, the European Union was the world’s biggest emitter, with 1.2 percent of the planet’s emissions.
That figure will drop to 0.9 percent in 2025.
The Paris summit aims to tackle two key issues: 1) how to fight global warming and 2) the global economy, as well as its impact on energy security and food security, said the European Commission.
The first phase of the conference is expected to be focused on the EU’s greenhouse gas emission reduction target for 2030, which is set at 1.5 percent of global output by 2050, the Commission said.
This target is the second in line for the European Parliament to set, following the one set in 2020.
A second phase of climate change negotiations will focus on the energy security of the EU and its member states.
The second phase will be focused around how to ensure energy security by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of the transport sector and the power sector.
The EU will set its own targets, but the goal will be to achieve 20 percent reductions from 2020.
This will be achieved by reducing fossil fuel consumption by about a third.
The Commission will set out a timetable for achieving these targets by 2025.
The EU is expected at this time to announce a target for the 2030 target.
The U.K. has announced its own ambitious carbon reduction target of 20 percent by 2030, and its plan will be put to the European and U.N. climate talks.
The European Commission says it has a similar goal for 2020, with a target of 15 percent.
The United States has set a goal of 20.2 million tons of CO2 equivalent emissions by 2050 from 2005 levels, with an additional target of 8.2 billion tons.
The United States is also expected to announce that it will reduce its greenhouse gas pollution to levels that are equal to the level that is achievable by 2030.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the U,S.
is determined to reduce emissions and the international community will support our efforts to do so.
We will continue to lead the way on a global, global climate change.
I can assure you that we will continue leading the way to reducing greenhouse gas (GHGs) and will continue working with our partners to create a more sustainable world, he said in a statement.EU member states will also be in the spotlight.
The leaders of the European Greens, which includes Britain and France, will address the conference, and the European People’s Party (EPP), led by the German Green Party, will take part in the talks.
“Europe has always been a world leader in tackling climate change, and we must continue to be a global leader on climate,” said EPP leader Martin Schulz.
“Climate change is a global challenge, and our countries and the EU will play a leading role in addressing it.
We must make our cities green again.”
