The UN has sounded the alarm: the urgent need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions

ООН бьет тревогу: нужно срочно сократить выбросы углекислого газа

To curb global warming by 2050 is necessary to reduce to zero CO2 emissions.

UN experts say that global warming must be kept within the bounds of 1.5 degree Celsius, why the need for “unprecedented” change.

About it reports Deutsche Welle with reference to the report of the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) of the United Nations, which was presented on Monday, October 8, at the meeting in the South Korean city of Incheon.

“Constraints of growth temperature on the Ground at the level of 1.5 degrees Celsius could be achieved only if “to perform rapid, unprecedented and comprehensive changes in all areas of society”, – stated in the message.

The IPCC considered that only in order to make the necessary changes in the energy sector will require about 2.1 billion euros. The level of CO2 emissions, according to experts should be reduced by 24 percent by 2030 compared to 2010, and by 2050 – reduce to zero.

Limiting it to 1.5 degrees compared to pre-industrial levels is necessary in order to avoid the most devastating consequences for life on the planet, experts say. They record the rise in temperature by about one degree as a result of extreme weather conditions, rising sea levels and melting glaciers. Temperature rise above this level, according to the IPCC, could lead to irreversible consequences and loss of ecosystems.

The aim of the Paris climate agreement – until the end of the century to keep global warming under two degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels. Limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius prescribed it as an additional goal.

The Assembly will discuss the problem of access monitoring missions of the Council of Europe and the UN on the territory temporarily occupied territories (grey areas).

In the framework of the debate on General issues planned to discuss the theme of the Council of Europe is an organization in crisis.

The agenda of the session, also the discussion of the report on the crash of Tu – 154 transporting the Polish government delegation near Smolensk in 2010, and the issue of nuclear safety in Europe.

Discussion the most controversial issue – revision of powers and the voting rights of national delegations is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9. As Rapporteur on this issue will be made by the Deputy from Belgium Petra De Sutter.

A report on this issue includes the “proposal withdrawal or revision of the authority and/or rights of representation and participation of national delegations, as well as regarding voting rights of members and the voting of the national delegations.

As you know, this question is raised to PACE in connection with the restriction of the rights of the Russian delegation, which continues in 2014. Since then, Russia has ceased to pay contributions to the budget of the Council of Europe.

We will remind, last week the Verkhovna Rada adopted a statement on the return of the Russian Federation in PACE. MPs condemned the attempts of lifting the restrictive measures in respect of the permanent delegation of the Russian Federation in PACE to bypass the resolutions of the Assembly.
