It has become mandatory on the part of each nation to cut the consumption of green house gases to save the universe from climate change. The existing UN pact obliges 40 developed nations to begin reducing their green house gas usage. This pact is under print carbon market and is meant to foster a vast shift in investment towards cleaner energies.
However, emerging economies say that the rich have burnt most fossil fuels since the industrial resolution and must continue to lead extending Kyoto. Carbon offset markets worth $20 billion last year depend on Kyoto emission caps to drive developed countries to pay for cuts in green house gases in developing nations.
The recently held Cancun meeting resolved many agreements such as establishing a Green Climate fund! This would protect tropical forests and provide a way to share clean emerging technologies and help developing nations adapt to climate change.
