Issues on climate change will be with us for a long time. The literature involved in the protection of our planet, its people and businesses can not be exhausted. But emphasis on the emergencies of energy and climate change as they impact our physical and ecological systems, should inform contemporary conversations.
To create a save our planet default-especially in day to day living, notes in policies and implementations for a cleaner earth should move quickly from the intergovernmental diplomatic table, into the minds of the global population.
Since our trip from Bella Center, Copenhagen, our national and continental policy positioning are expected to be romantic. As much as we trust Copenhagen, COP15 negotiations to be the unifying platform towards saving our environment in a profitable pattern; we must agree it is not an end in itself. We will require a post-Copenhagen that is institutionally supported, across businesses and countries.
This we can achieve by interpreting various development scenarios across development scales around the world. Industrialized nations will have to lead the campaign in finance (green lights already from COP15), technology transfer and intellectual support. But such social goods can not perform expected in a developing nation with massive rate of institutional injustice and genocide by attrition. Simulating future development outcomes across development levels and agreeing to fashion "behind nations" to fit into the sustainability mainstream will determine the success we imagine for a post-Copenhagen.
For the most part, campaign on human rights awareness, especially in developing economies will be imperative in positioning Low Income Countries under Stress (LICUS) for brighter future and sustainable foreign direct investments. This is important for two reasons; enlightened human capacity is needed to champion the cause on climate change – we can not realize that with people living in tents and below one dollar a day. Secondly, without such states are structured under the framework of an "inclusive democracy", future development will be haphazard and sustainability will again be jeopardized in a new socioeconomic front.
December 7-18, 2009, hosted one of the highest intergovernmental negotiations on energy and environmental circumstances. Safe-guarding the environment and balancing the needs of business and society was at the center of various policy triangulations. But the greatest challenge at Copenhagen, suggestively, was aligning concerns and resources of shareholders, citizens, businesses, society, companies, consumers, governments and NGOs towards a truly sustainable future.
Undoubtedly that will will be difficult; but it can be done. We just need to balance independent concerns with that of the planet. Time was not enough to achieve that before COP15; and it can never be enough. The gentlemen at UNFCCC know this. Our IPCC brothers think so too. But the people of the world need to know that as well.
