New reduced carbon emissions targets for Fiji
September 8, 2015 5:09 am
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will soon be announcing Fiji’s very own percentage target in reducing carbon gas emissions.
He revealed this while opening the 3rd National Climate Change Summit in Levuka today.
Bainimarama says it is unfair that our own carbon emissions are almost nothing compared to those countries with big economies and big industries that are causing these problems yet we have to suffer the most.
Heading into the COP21 Summit in Paris in November, Bainimarama says Small Island Developing States are getting a sharp lesson in the reality of international politics – where the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.
He says we are going to Paris with one voice to tell the nations of the world enough is enough.
He adds the countries need to make the binding cuts in carbon emissions that the scientists say are needed to reduce emissions and lower the average global temperature, or be condemned for all time for being immoral and extremely selfish.
