United Nations, Climate Change, natural disasters
Over the intervening period, the world nations had prioritized efforts and initiated programs meant to attain a low-carbon environment in the future generations. Alike all conferences, the subject at the Copenhagen meeting sought to assume a cooperative approach in regenerating a future green world, sparing generations to come from the agony of indescribable climatic conditions.
A repeat of the past toothless declarations would be costly for the world environment given the damage emerging from accelerating global warming. Reversing the climatic trend demand a strategic solution to prevent the earth from facing a series of cascading events which would definitely initiate natural disasters with the eventuality of changing life on earth. The ultimate objective of the annual climatic conferences rests on delivering the climatic system from the dangerous influence of everyday human actions, jeopardizing the existence of future life on earth. For too long, the climatic politics have reshaped and instigated rivalry amongst the developed nations for their large emissions of carbon gases to the climate.

This is tailored alongside the approach to increase the utilization of renewable energy sources from to in 2015. In addition, China has committed to afforestation resulting in the world largest man-made forest cover. Lastly, despite committing to reducing its overall emissions, the country has remained steadfast to the growth-first strategy which has seen the government decisive actions to support and subsidize clean-energy industry (Gang p.

[...] Additionally, the participants should weigh national growth focus against the international needs of solving climatic change. Next, applying an ethical principle for the participants will involve a combination of communitarianism and utilitarianism perspectives to incorporate various styles including arational, rational and collaborative with key external influences. Ideally, looking for a third approach yielding alternative solutions besides compulsory emission caps would suitably bring the competing factions of industrial growth and cutting emissions together. At this point, participants should embrace moral courage and moral sensitivity in reaching a decision after wrestling the problem under critical analysis. [...]
