Westward Group Climate Change Tokyo, Asia, Paris Summit: Klimatförändringar

USA-Kina flytta om klimatförändringar som är kritiska till Asien

En uppsättning rapporter av den mellanstatliga panelen för klimatförändringar (IPCC), sist som släpptes den 2 November, 2014, sätter scenen för regeringar att förnya sina ansträngningar på frågan genom ambitiösa åtaganden för ett heltäckande klimatavtal i Paris i December 2015.

USA-Kina flytta om klimatförändringar som är kritiska till Asien

En uppsättning rapporter av den mellanstatliga panelen för klimatförändringar (IPCC), sist som släpptes den 2 November, 2014, sätter scenen för regeringar att förnya sina ansträngningar på frågan genom ambitiösa åtaganden för ett heltäckande klimatavtal i Paris i December 2015.

Syntesen släppt den här veckan och tidigare tre volymer av rapporterna har tydligt etablerat bevis om klimatförändringar den sannolikt irreversibla skadan på kritiska ekosystem och sårbarhet för mänskliga och ekonomiska system. Det finns ett smalt fönster av möjligheter att minska utsläppen så att vi kan garantera temperaturstegringen stannar inom målet 2 grader Celsius (C) i slutet av detta århundrade.

I Asien och Stillahavsområdet finns det ett särskilt behov att ta itu med denna fråga. Senaste utvecklingen vinster att vändas på grund av klimatpåverkan är väl förstådda. Den andra volymen av IPCC-rapporten, effekter, anpassning och sårbarhet, släppt i mars 2014, tydligt beskrivas skadorna på de fysiska och ekonomiska systemen i vår region.

Regionen är en stora geografiska utbredning som också hem till den största populationen av världens fattiga, vilket gör det särskilt känsliga för effekterna av klimatförändringarna. Dessa effekter omfattar vattenstress, livsmedelsförsörjning, kustnära översvämningar och erosion, förde med sig risken för utrotning av terrestrial och sötvatten arter och ökad prevalens av vektorburna sjukdomar.

Anpassning till dessa är sättet att gå framåt. Men det finns gränser, som tydligt har erkänts av IPCC. Detta gör rollen som riskreducerande eller minska utsläppen av växthusgaser (GHG) central till något svar till klimatförändringarna. Så nu är IPCC tydligt erkänna komplementariteten mellan anpassning och begränsning i samband med globala hållbara utvecklingen.

South loop skate park noise

What's the point of living in an expensive building when mayor Emanuel and will burns along with the park guy kelly open a skate park so the neighbors can hear loud violent anti-women rap lyrics pounding. Messages left with cpd no response. Guess this us what mayor pay to play wants.

    I can't believe they let that wiesel Bob O’Neill, President of The Grant Park Conservancy, convince the city take TIF money and foist the skate park in that space, which is technically not Grant Park. Their only goal is to use it to make inside money when they take it over during Lalapalooza, you watch.

    Combine this mess with the incredibly poor presentation of the headless statues, Agora, and this corner is crapola that would not be allowed near the north side of the park. (Poor organization, wasted space, No landscaping, no lighting, no seating, etc.) They should rip that shiit out and put in another formal space.

    O'Neill needs to be neutered, is this an elected position? And why is Grant Park Conservancy being allowed to represent on Museum Campus and Northerly Island issues when they are not part of Grant Park; that is not legal in sense of the park district by-laws.

  • West loop realist Teacher political operative

    That's what he talks about to gain favor with Rahm.

The Gino’s signage has been removed from 167 W Erie, the site of a planned 39-story, 400-unit tower, but construction activity has yet to begin.

805 N LaSalle was one floor away from attaining its full 35-story height. The 367-unit, 35-story State & Chestnut development was topped out and glass installation was nearing completion.

The 6-story, 23-unit apartment building at 858 N Franklin appeared to be nearly ready for occupancy.

Foundation work was still underway at 545 N McClurg, site of a 44-story, 490-unit apartment tower.

The 16-story, 240-unit 625 W Division, across from the new Target, is nearing the point at which it should begin climbing rapidly.
