Global agreement reached to limit greenhouse gases

Nations a treaty to combat climate change, a major greenhouse gas carbon dioxide in the effort to limit the use of stronger than reached.
Hydro fluorocarbons, or HFCs talks, has been asked since the first test of global will to reduce carbon emissions last year reached a historic agreement in Paris. HFCs are described as the world’s fastest-growing climate pollutant and are used in air conditioners and refrigerators.

Agreement announced on Saturday morning, after all-night talks, the cap and the United States, the world's second worst polluter, starting from 2019, including actions by developed countries to reduce the use of HFCs is a gradual process. The world's top carbon emitter China, including more than 100 developing countries, in 2024 to start taking action.

India, Pakistan and some Gulf countries, including the push for a small group to be protected later in 2028, says it needs more time to grow their economies. India, the world's third worst polluter than three years ago, was first proposed.

Environmental groups hope was that, by the end of the contract of the century and a half degrees Celsius could reduce global warming. This deal gets nearly 90 percent of the way there, Durwood Zaelke, president of the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development.

Zaelke Group, said the "temperature reduction in the largest ever achieved by a single agreement." The new agreement "the whole world for more than two years of fossil-fuel CO2 emissions equal to stopping," David Doniger, climate and clean air program director with the Natural Resources Defense Council, said in a statement.

Analysts said they expect that market forces will support the motion agreed to limit contracts. "Compromises had to be made, but the developing countries, 85 per cent of the primary schedule in early 2024, has been committed to a very significant achievement," Claire Perry, the Environmental Investigation Agency, with the UK climate campaign leader, said in a statement.

HFCs as a substitute for ozone-depleting gas were introduced in 1980. But the danger of air conditioning and refrigerators as well as emerging economies such as China and India, increased sales has grown. HFCs are also found in inhalers and insulating foams.

The economy has debated how quickly to phase out HFCs. The United States, whose delegation was led by Secretary of State John Kerry, and western countries want to move faster. Nations such as India want to give more time to adjust their industry.

Small island states and many African countries had pushed for quick action, climate change is the biggest threat they face. "It might not be completely what the island wanted, but it is a good agreement," the minister support the Marshall Islands, Mattlan Zackhras president, said in a statement. "We are all we have to go further, and we know it will go further."

HFCs carbon dioxide is less plentiful, but Kerry said last month that 300 coal-fired power plant every year, they now emit as much pollution. That amount will increase significantly over the coming decades, such as air conditioning units and fridges new people hundreds of millions of reach.

Under the 1987 Montreal Protocol on HFCs chlorofluorocarbons and similar gases that do not harm the ozone layer are knocked out. Ratification of the treaty in the whole world, the ozone layer protects the planet from harmful rays of the sun helps to repair that hole. The purpose of these meetings that deal with HFCs in particular, an amendment was attached.
