The Montreal Protocol is the most successful protocol in the otherwise rather viscous Beeich the climate agreement. The Protocol was adopted in 1987 and was able to serve well to the fight against ozone layer depletion as well as the elimination of CFCs.
Montreal Protocol is to reduce climate change
Within a few years, many of the dangerous substances and the ozone layer disappeared from the market rebounded significantly.
This successful model will now be applied to the climate. Shortly, before the climate summit, the odds that the states could agree on concrete measures against global warming are poor.
Some of these functions could also take on the Montreal Protocol. This would highly potent greenhouse gases are also included in this protocol. In return, the contractors are currently on a meeting in Bangkok.
More specifically, fluorine-hydrocarbons are used in air conditioning and cooling systems. These organic compounds have up to 15,000 times as much effect as CO2. There are environmentally friendly alternatives that hold already in the auto industry catchment.
Would be eliminated CFCs, this would be a break and save the environment by 2050 the equivalent of 88 billion tons of CO2.
The demand for a ban on CFC-gases comes from the Federated States of Micronesia, the island nation with fear for a further rise in sea level.
However, to emerging economies such as China and India not to ban the CFC gases can warm as they get there in the industry. However, the negotiator of the United States, Daniel Reifsnyder, has hopes to lead the talks in a few years successfully.
