What is Climate Emergency

Britain has become the first country to impose emergency on climate change . main motive of climate emergency is to reduce carbon emission and to achieve target of Paris agreement

What is Climate Emergency -

   Global climate crisis has triggered greenhouse gases in our environment. They have warmed up our Planet and are already a true disaster at the present level. Unless removed, these gases will result in global warming levels, which will be devastating to humanity and the rest of the world's other ecosystems.
To combat with this , we have to take some concrete steps, that is  called the climate Emergency.

Following a stringent protests in London over the last 11 days in relation to Climate change, the British Parliament has declared an emergency in relation to environment and climate change. He became the first country in the world to do so.

 The special thing is that the proposal for this effect was presented on behalf of the opposition. Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said, "It's time to actually work to deal with climate change." He has expressed hope that after this move of Britain, worldwide Parliament and governments will work seriously in this direction.

Britain's people's Demand made movement

In mid-April, activists of a group demanding declaration of emergency on climate change began protesting in central London. In this protests that lasted for 11 days, protesters closed the streets of the city and made the London Underground transport system paralyzed. Now this movement has spread in Germany and other European countries too.

1. Dozens of towns and cities across the UK have already declared "a climate emergency".
2. Some councils have promised to introduce electric car hubs or build sustainable homes to try to achieve that goal.
3. It's a much more ambitious target than the UK government's, which is to reduce carbon emissions by 80% (compared to 1990 levels) by 2050.

First time offer of Climate emergency 

Bristol counselor Carla Dennier debated the idea of ​​declaring a Climate emergency for the first time  in November the City Council passed the resolution.

 Many school children came to the United States and thousands of students around the world also joined this movement in protest of climate change in front. Gretta Thünberg, a Swedish school girl, also addressed the country's politicians as describing climate change as a major threat.

United Nation's Concern towards Climate Change 

The United Nations says that we have only 12 years to avoid the catastrophic climate change. If the problem is not resolved quickly, the earth will be devastated.

Countries concern For Climate Change 

In order to warn the world of the dangers of global warming and climate change, the ministers of the Maldives have come to the sea and meet the cabinet meeting.
 The Government of Nepal, in December, 2009, organized the world's highest cabinet meeting on Mount Everest base camp. Through this step, Nepal had taken the attention of industrialized countries to the point that their activities would have been drawn towards their activities.

India's Goal for Paris Agreement 

Under the Paris Agreement, India has made three commitments. India’s greenhouse gas emission intensity of its GDP will be reduced by 33-35 percent  below 2005 levels by 2030. Alongside, 40 percent  of India’s power capacity would be based on non-fossil fuel sources.

 At the same time, India will create an additional ‘carbon sink’ of 2.5 to 3 billion tonnes of Co2 equivalent through additional forest and tree cover by 2030.

The Paris climate agreement is a pact, signed in December 2015 by 195 countries, to keep global temperature increase well below 2C, and if possible, below 1.5C. 

Increasing Environmental Love in People 

Even before the Parliament declared a climate emergency, dozens of towns and cities of the UK had declared a climate emergency. People say that they want to be carbon neutral by 2030. That is, the same carbon emissions can be adjusted naturally. Some local councils promised to start an electric car hub to achieve that goal.

How can the public co-operate to achieve this Target 

  • Travel with pedestrians, bicycles or government traffic in most places instead of the car
  • Replace the car with electronic vehicles, charge them and reduce fuel consumption
  • Make more use of limited cars by creating a car club.
  • Reduce your Carbon Footprint.
  • plant more trees.
  • Eat vegetarian food. 

Caution in home

  • The use of LED bulbs in homes is less risky for the climate
  • -Use high-performance electronic devices that do less power
  • Do not keep the thermoset  above 19 degrees and keep the temperature of water at 55 degrees Celsius.

What We can do for Climate Change 

  • -Make more people aware about the dangers of climate change
  • Organize discussions under publicity campaign and increase participation of people
  • - Regular discussions on this subject should be organized in the schools and schools.

What can the government do to reduce climate change ?

  • The government will have to fix policies to reduce carbon emissions and efforts will be made to achieve the target by 2050.
  • The government has to make such arrangements that every new car or vehicle coming up by 2035 should be electric
  • To charge these vehicles the infrastructure will need to be built so that a large number of vehicles can be charged
  • Agriculture-based policies have to be strengthened so that more and more farmers are encouraged.
  • We have to increase the area, by 2050 the forest will have to increase from 13% to 17%.


    Climate Emergency is a very praiseworthy step. All countries should appreciate this plan and give maximum support so that we can meet the zero carbon emissions target.

Thank you!!
