Copenhagen (Hopenhagen) will replace Kyoto Protocol
The new climate treaty in Copenhagen (Hopenhagen) will replace Kyoto Protocol adopted in Kyoto, Japan, in December 1997. Kyoto Protocol entered into force on February 16, 2005.Climate change conference, Copenhagen has been taking place between December 7 and 18, 2009.
184 countries signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol but the US. The UN Climate Convention set binding targets for reduction of green house gas emissions. Yvo de Boer is really happy to see the United States of America (The US) back in the international climate change process. Obama administration in the US is also engaging domestically in the process.
Both President Obama and Hilary Clinton have been showing their keen concern on environment related issues. It is to be worth noted that President Obama has promised five million domestic green collar jobs in the United States of America (The US) in a decade.
Copenhagen can be proved Hopenhagen if Obama administration of United states of America (The US) will support agenda of developing countries and join hands to cut carbon emissions. It will really be a great step to stop global warming. Developing countries likes of India and China have shown their willingness to go green to fight global warming.

Essentials in Copenhagen (Hopenhagen)
Yvo de Boer, UN climate chief hopes the Copenhagen climate change conference will reach to agreements on four political essentials. He does not expect to have detailed work in Hopenhagen. Yvo de Boer, Executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), had expressed that in an interview with Environment and Energy Publishing.
The four essentials calling for an international agreement in Copenhagen are:
1. Willingness to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by industrialized countries.
2. Willingness to limit growth of emissions of greenhouse gases by major developing countries such as China and India.
3. Help and finance needed by developing countries for reducing their carbon emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change.
4. Managing money to support processes of limiting carbon emissions to stop global warming.
Dr.Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India, has unilaterally announced cut in carbon emissions by 20 to 25 percent. This is a significant for the progress of second agenda. It will surely put pressure on the United States of America (The US) and other developed countries in European Union and other parts of the globe to promise for reduction of green house gases.

What Is Global Warming and Sustainable Development ?
Rise in temperature of the globe (The Earth) is called global warming. Burning fossil fuels produces Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other such gases. These gases are called green house gases and produce green house effect.
Causes of global warming: Green house gases work as resistant to thermal radiation and do not allow the earth to emit heat to the space. These causes warming of the earth. Hence, carbon emissions or green house gases emissions are the main causes of global warming.
Effects of global warming: Global warming causes irreparable loses to global environment. It changes the climate of the earth. Glaciers start melting filling rivers, oceans and seas with water. This causes flood in the various parts of the globe. It also increases sea level and brings coastal cities into danger. It also severely affect agriculture. Climate change also causes various diseases.
It affects animals and plants adversely. Large number of plant and animal species are either extinguished or at the threshold of. Conservation of species is great problem of modern days. It creates imbalance in the nature and and damage ecosystem.
Global warming solutions: Carbon emissions cut is the main global warming solution. Forestation, switching to renewable energy sources, limiting over consumption, go green etc are parts to fight global warming.
Read and write global warming articles: it is absolutely necessary to spread awareness about global warming and reading and writing global warming articles are part of that. Read more about it and motivate people to read and write global warming articles to stop global warming and climate change. it is in the interest of all of us and also for the next generations.
Sustainable development: Sustainable environment is a must for sustainable development. We must have to protect and preserve global environment at our own interest. If we ignore environment issues now we can not achieve environmental conservation and environmental sustainability.
