Abstract:
Today, it is no exaggeration to say that the global warming process is the most lethal threat to mankind today. Global warming is now proceeding at an almost constant pace: the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere keeps increasing: 399.6 (Jan 2015), 402.52 (Jan 2016) and 404.21 (March 2016) as well as 408 (April 2016). The COP21 idea is that this increase follows the anthropogenic GHG. Only the social sciences can analyse how the governments of the countries of the world may coordinate to decrease the CO2 emissions, before the methane emissions start augmenting, which would be fatal for mankind. The standard energy projections for 21rst century outline immense increases, but energy consumption results in GHG (greenhouse gases) emissions. This is the global contradiction between energy and emissions, stemming from the omnipresent demand for economic development or economic growth. The UNFCCC Parties will have to struggle with a huge set of implementation issues over the next decades, but failure is in no way to be excluded. When COP21 is said to promise completely carbon neutral energy for the world, then the implementation perspective is long in time indeed, or the entire century. However calamitous and profoundly sad the destruction of the Syrian nation may be, it cannot be compared when the full effects from global warming, if unstoppable or unhindered by implementation failure.
