The Study on the Global Emission Reduction Commitments and Environment Change After Climate Agreement

Although most of the debate on global climate change policy has focused on quantity controls due to their political appeal, this paper argues that agreement commitment are more efficient. Scenarios show that to have a likely chance of limiting the increase in global mean temperature to two degrees Celsius, means lowering global greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 70 percent compared with 2010 by mid-century, and to near-zero by the end of this century. Ambitious mitigation may even require removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This paper emphasizes on global cooperation which is a key for preventing global warming and toward sustainable development, and fair emission reduction targets among countries are significant for achieving emission reductions.
