We did this

And will continue to do it.
40% and $700 billion.
That’s what’s needed.
What we need from Copenhagen: Our emmissions 40% lower than 1990 and $700 billion reparations.
What’s on offer: Our emmisions 20% lower than 2005 levels and $10 billion reparations.
75% of carbon emissions have been produced by 20% of the world’s population.
That’s us. We are that 20%.
Our emmissions are overwhelmingly felt in the developing world.
Floods and droughts are ravaging the developing world now and can only get worse.
What needs to be done urgently:
We need to lower our emmisions to 40% below what we produced in 1990. Anything less is a joke.
We need to pay for the damage we have already caused and are continuing to cause in the developing world.
Droughts and floods:…………..$100 billion a year.
Leapfrogging over dirty energies:.$600 billion a year.
Anything less won’t work.
