“The share of electricity capacity for non-fossil fuels has also increased, from 30% in 2005 to 35% in 2018, of which 20% is renewable energy. By continuing this upward trend, India could reach a non-fossil electricity capacity of 40% earlier than in 2030. Although renewables are becoming cheaper than coal-fired power plants in India, the development of non-fossil power cannot compensate for the lack of measures to reduce the share of electricity produced by coal,” the report said. He said the problem with these reports is that they look at the whole problem of climate change from an oversimplified lens, because they put all countries in the same basket. According to the report, sufficient commitments were the Climate Commitments, which committed to reducing emissions by 40%, as they are largely in line with the global emergency reason for the need to reduce emissions by at least half by 2030. Sometimes sufficient commitments were those that committed to reducing emissions by 20 to 40%. Countries that had committed to reducing emissions below 20 per cent were considered to be sometimes insufficient commitments, and countries that did not have emission reduction targets in their commitments and whose commitments depended on more than 50 per cent of international financial assistance were considered insufficient. The UN report warns that the terrible effects of climate change will come sooner than many expected. Here`s why we need to follow the report`s advice and why every tonne of emission reductions can make a difference. On June 1, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the agreement.  Pursuant to Article 28, the agreement that entered into force in the United States on November 4, 2016 is the earliest possible date for the effective withdrawal of the United States on November 4, 2020. If it had decided to withdraw by leaving the UNFCCC, it could be immediately denounced (the UNFCCC entered into force for the United States in 1994) and enter into force a year later.
On August 4, 2017, the Trump administration officially communicated to the United Nations that the United States intends to withdraw from the Paris Agreement as soon as it has the legal right to do so.  The invitation to resign could only be presented after the agreement entered into force for the United States for three years in 2019.   The “Truth Behind the Climate Pledges” report, published by the Universal Ecological Fund, a US-based non-profit research organization that deals with climate change issues, proposed a study of climate commitments by a panel of experts from the UK, US, Argentina and Austria. The experts, composed of climate scientists and scientific organizations, assessed countries against their commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and identified weaknesses in the voluntary commitments. It will only enter into force legally when it has been ratified by at least 55 countries that together produce at least 55% of global carbon emissions. Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar signed the agreement in the lobby of the UN General Assembly at a high-level ceremony hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The ceremony brought together heads of government, ministers, business leaders and artists….
