GLOBAL CLIMATE ACTION COMPACT

Posted on: January 6, 2021

Global Climate Action Summit | UCLG

CLIMATE SCIENCE HOLDS THAT THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE IS GLOBAL AND THAT THEREFORE THE NEEDED CLIMATE ACTION MUST ALSO BE GLOBAL SO THAT GLOBAL FOSSIL FUEL EMISSIONS MUST BE BROUGHT DOWN TO ZERO WITH A GLOBAL COMPACT AMONG ALL NATIONS OF THE WORLD BECAUSE GLOBAL WARMING IS A GLOBAL ISSUE. IT IS FURTHER CLAIMED THAT THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL, A GLOBAL AGREEMENT TO REDUCE AND ELIMINATE THE PRODUCTION AND USE OF OZONE DESTROYING SUBSTANCES SERVES AS A MODEL FOR THE NEEDED CLIMATE IMPACT.

THIS POST IS A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF THE ASSUMPTION IN THIS ARGUMENT THAT THE SUCCESS OF THE MONTREAL PROTCOL PROVIDES THE EVIDENCE THAT SUCH A GLOBAL AGREEMENT IS ALSO POSSIBLE IN CLIMATE CHANGE.

A large number of analytical studies and opinions have been published in the popular press where a comparison of the ozone depletion crisis with the climate crisis of our time in terms of their global nature is used to propose that the success of the Montreal Protocol in global human emissions of ozone depleting substances provides the evidence that a corresponding global compact is also possible for arresting anthropogenic global warming by elimination all fossil fuel emissions globally.

Based on the assumption of the comparability of the ozone depletion and the climate change issues, these studies propose in essence that global climate action to arrest the rate of warming is possible by forging a Montreal Protocol for fossil fuel emissions. These published analyses that propose a Montreal Protocol for climate action, compare the global warming / climate action issue with the ozone depletion issue with the assumption that these issues are comparable. YET, AS SHOWN IN THE RELATED POSTS LISTED BELOW, THESE TWO ISSUES ARE NOT COMPARABLE.
