Reducing Emissions Can Act Alone

World weary, all tired and effect long-winded negotiations at the United Nations Framework on Climate Change Convention. Not surprisingly, voluntary movement from the state party is now gathering popularity. In fact, there is an idea to leave the two giants release of greenhouse gas emissions, the United States and China.

In science, if you calculated how much greenhouse gas emissions could be lowered by its own pursuit of this, he replied: do not (be) sufficient.

Emission reduction targets proposed expert Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that global emissions must fall by 50 percent in 2050 for the temperature rise can be limited below 2 degrees Celsius and there should also committed developed countries to reduce emissions at least 80 percent in 2050 from 1990 levels.

While waiting for that commitment never agreed upon, at this time a number of countries with more than 80 percent of world greenhouse gas emissions has committed voluntarily to reduce their emissions.
A number of key states have made rules that have been implemented, policies, and real programs. To be sure the action was real. They are laying the foundation for their low-carbon development.
These countries, among others:
Largest greenhouse gas emitter, China, is now internally implement energy efficiency targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) emissions within the next five years, 2010-2015. The target is 40-45 percent reduction in carbon intensity by 2020 from levels in 2005.
Other countries, namely India, which target decrease its GHG emissions by, among others, provide subsidies, feed-in tariffs where people can sell its electricity to the state and the policies about the use of solar energy, as well as policies for industries that implement energy efficiency programs . The policy was known as the "Perform, Achieve, and Trade". There was also a net energy taxes for coal-fuel users as funding new projects and renewable energy.
While the U.S. as the second largest GHG emitter in the world is now moving with the Clean Air Act (Clean Water Act). Their target, namely reduction of GHG emissions by 17 percent from the level of emissions in 2005. Uncle Sam's country recently adopted new emissions standards for passenger vehicles and heavy vehicles and implement emission reduction on new factory-starting next year. Not to mention the State of California which first began construction of low-carbon.
While the member countries of the European Union collectively and individually also implemented various policies to increase the target reduction of GHG emissions to 30 percent below 1990 emission levels by 2020.
While Brazil continues to combat deforestation and to apply its target in 2020. Similarly, South Africa, will host the Meeting of the Parties The 17 (COP-17) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), has designed the emissions reduction program. Not to mention Indonesia, which last year pledged to reduce GHG emissions by 26 percent in 2020-although not yet published details of its program.
