Leaders of the world are trying to combat against greenhouse gasses. In New Zealand, the powerful industries have been using greenhouse gasses, damaging the atmosphere. After another international agreement, every country in the world should start using more eco-friendly products and systems which will be able to preserve the health of our planet.
In Rwanda took place a meeting consisting of 170 leaders of the world who demanded that New Zealand should reduce the use of carbon dioxide and other dangerous gasses by 85% in the next years. Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) are severely affecting our planet, polluting the air we breathe. If this greenhouse gasses are reduced, the effects of climate change could drop the temperatures with 0.5 Celsius.
HFC are being used for the producing of fridges and air-conditioning devices. They are also a primary source for aerosol sprays and dairy sheds. These dangerous gasses were generated in 1980s ad they were replacing the Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) which were harming the atmosphere.
HFCs are a significant contribution for the developing of climate change. John Kerry, who is the US Secretary of State argued that this agreement will be very helpful to the entire world, being the greatest victory we could ever achieve. If we work together for our health, we will succeed.
James Renwick, a professor of the physical geography at the Victoria University, argued that the changes which were requested by the leaders of the world are not impossible. Those claims will be easy to fulfill, and it will be even cheaper. There are plenty of other methods meant to help the industries which were developed over the years.
Renwick asserted that the transition from HFC to other substitutes could be done without harming the economy or industry fields. Experts have been discovering other replacements for the dangerous gasses. These new alternatives appear to be harmless. The changeover from bad to good will be beneficial for everybody.
Nick Smith, who is the Minister for the Environment, has also been claiming that this change will not rely on extra costs which will be covered by the government. The costs will be insignificant. He said that leaders of the world agreed to change the HFC greenhouse gasses with replacements which will not affect climate change or the ozone layer. Industries will not have to suffer from this. All we need to do is to think about health, not about the money.
